  1. What about black gays?? When will I get my chance to shine?!!

  2. New perspectives in the public sector!

  3. Why the hell do people make every damn thing bout color of skin stop using that as your only soap box y’all got to stand on to get seen first question can you do your job and make this country better oh yes u can good we gonna vote for you not the damn color routine this country has been piggy back riding on for years

  4. I think making the story about a black person gets the racist people to speak out which identifies and records their opinions. It also motivates others who systematically believe it’s not possible for them to accomplish what for centuries only a white male has been able too.
    Suppression and oppression.
    No one physically held anyone back
    but let me give you an example!’
    If you’re white and you only see Hispanic men or black men going into a building day after day and year after year are you going to go through that front door?
    Let’s say you do what are the chances you’d get promoted or be welcome?
    Racism: I once saw a kid get spanked by his white mother because her son was telling her he wanted a piñata for his birthday 🎂!
    Only once in 53 years have I seen a family that wasn’t Hispanic having a piñata 🪅 at their kids birthday party.
    Little things paint a big picture.
    It isn’t the piñata it’s the candy inside of it!

  5. Why has it taken so long to recognize they can run things when they tell big dummies at home what to do?

  6. Breaking barriers, black women have always had to step up for her black man. She understands
    Straight in her black man, she also knows whos afraid of her black man they keep killing.
    To the black men .its time you COME HOME and say thank you to her.

  7. If all you have to run on is the color of your skin then good luck!

  8. So much for the content of their character…
    "Vote for them because they're black women."

  9. I AM LISTENING AND WATCHING. I AM HAPPY FOR THEM AS LONG AS THEY ARE NOT JUST GATE KEEPERS FOR WHITE SUPREMACY IDEOLOGY. ADOS-FBA B1 FORLIFE 👍 ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT VIDEO. REPERATIONS NOW ONLY CONVERSATION NEEDED ASAP ❤️ 🌹💕✊🏿😷

  10. Nothing about their policy ideas or character.

  11. All Black Channel 24/7. There’s only one thing that matters to these idiots – the color of someone’s skin🤮

  12. CONGRATULATIONS LADYS MORE POWER TO YOUR POSITIVE INFLUENCE FOR CHANGE SALUTE

  13. Anyone find it strange that liberals can only talk color. Not qualifications or anything else. Brilliant!

  14. Anti-Asian.

    United States ethnic group of European, white people.

    South Saharan ethnic group of African, black people.

    Canadian and Mexican, Peruvian ethnic group of the American, red people.

  15. Yes ladies 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾

  16. Of course women should be allowed to vote!… but should they vote?

  17. Are white people allowed to start a sentence with “as a person of no color” 😂

  18. Ok ok ok. Black women are the greatest thing on earth. There. Happy? Can we get past this race crap please

  19. The color of their skin is the only thing that matters to Democrats. MLK wasted his breath with all of those speeches!

  20. 1. whats wrong with white guys? 2.and if you say no to #1 and you just want there to be diverse goverment of states then wouldnt that be voting for someone based on their race? and wouldnt that be racist? 3. congrats on being mayor but it dosnt matter if your black or a women your still an american in my eyes!

  21. If they re qualified, that s great then.

  22. What barrier? We've had a black president so there is no "Barrier". Enough with the stupidity.

  23. 2:33 reminded me of the fear I feel when I hear "I'm from the government and I'm here to help"

  24. This is not the best time for anyone to be left out when going for digital assets

  25. Why does their skin color matter ? Why is the left so racist?

  26. Looks like a great venue for a combination weave fair and break dancing contest

  27. Look At DC…Atlanta…Chicago…And California. We Don't Need To Say More. We Need Well Qualified Leadership. Think For Yourself. 🙄

  28. ABC= ALL BLACK CHANNEL ….NO SURPRISE HERE PUSHING THE AGENDA

  29. Why do they have to be black? Can't they just be human? Stop dividing us.

  30. How? By bullying good looking advocates.
    Typical tactics

  31. Isn’t the black technically the absence of color?

  32. What is it with people of color it sounds like segregating people based on their melanin.

  33. What could possibly go wrong

  34. It is hard to watch stupid people thinking skin color is the first quality to look at. When slavery was sold to Democrats in the North and South they did not care how light or dark the slave was, it was decided by their strength and loyalty. This new wave of "slavery" is not about African people being sold to the highest bidder, it is how stupid, ignorant and selfish you can be to support the Democrat party

  35. Black women lead??? 🤣🤣🤣

  36. This will trigger right-wingers 😂

  37. AOC is colored and she is a multimillionaire from her activism. Helped no one but herself.

    Harris is colored, placed as the border czar but never visited the border and hundreds of girls trafficked there everyday.

    The co founder of blm is colored, said she is a marxist and for black lives but has four mansions.

    What does color of the skin have to do with being competent and honest? Color solves nothing, right?
