MS. MAXINE WATERS #BLACKWOMANATWORK
Ms. Maxine Waters represents the women of America in the most casual and effect way. She tells the truth and has a no nonsense approach to the current presidential administration. She is a voice of reason, clad in a power suit, in a seat on the right side of history.
Maxine Waters was born in St Louis, the 5th of 13 children. Waters has spent 37 tireless years working in service to the American people. Waters represents the 43rd District in California strengthening opportunities for African American businesses , led congressional efforts to mitigate foreclosures and keep American families in their homes during the housing and economic crises. She spearheaded the development of the Minority AIDS Initiative in 1998 to address the alarming spread of HIV/AIDS. She is also the author of legislation to expand health services for patients with diabetes, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
Maxine Waters is every woman of color, fighting to be heard in a space filled with pink, puffy faced men in suits opposing her existence and ideas as she tries to make her world a better place. Maxine Waters now faces more opposition than ever. It's not just her fight for the people she is now being compared to negative black stereotypes and of course her hair is now up for grabs.
Waters eloquent response to the disrespect has made every decent person stand up and applaud. To quote former First Lady, Michelle Obama, "When they go low, we go high."
Here is Maxine Waters unbothered, non-response to sex predator and Fox News host Bill O'Reilly.
"Let me just say this: I’m a strong black woman and I cannot be intimidated. I cannot be thought to be afraid of Bill O’Reilly or anybody.
I’d like to say to women out there everywhere, don’t allow these right-wing talking heads, these dishonorable people, to intimidate you or scare you. Be who you are. Do what you do. And let us get on with discussing the real issues of this country. Bill O'Reilly and Roger Ailes have no credibility. They have been sued by women, they've had to pay millions of dollars ... And so we know about that checkered past."
I am reminded of the Brooklyn born Shirley Chisholm, who became the first African-American congresswoman in 1968. Four years later, she became the first major-party black candidate to make a bid for the U.S. presidency on an "Unbought and Unbossed" campaign slogan.
Watch out GOP x Fox News, you're making a very strong case for a Waters x Warren 2020 ticket. Xo LN
