Quoted @FenitN

At anti-D.C. statehood press conference, Senator Steve Daines (R-Mt.) urges lawmakers to "go out to where the real people are at across the country and ask them where they think."

Imagine the reaction among Republicans if someone said that residents of cities in Montana or North Dakota or Iowa weren't "real people." As Fenit notes here, DC is almost half Black, and yes, some people work in gov but more in the private sector. They are also Americans. https://t.co/Feo6bddU3w

Some news that would have been unimaginable a few months ago... GOP Senators @RonJohnsonWI and @jameslankford are proposing an amendment to Texas Senator @JohnCornyn's bill to make Juneteenth a federal holiday Their amendment would remove Columbus Day as a federal holiday

Quoted @realDonaldTrump

At the request of many great Americans who live in the Suburbs, and others, I am studying the AFFH housing regulation that is having a devastating impact on these once thriving Suburban areas. Corrupt Joe Biden wants to make them MUCH WORSE. Not fair to homeowners, I may END!

Trump appealing to suburban voters by... telling them he will potentially end fair housing rules meant to combat segregation and housing discrimination? https://t.co/ZcPwedB6tP

Myrlie Evers, the widow of slain civil rights leader Medgar Evers, began to weep when she heard the Mississippi Legislature vote to remove the Confederate battle emblem from the state flag. “Medgar’s wings must be clapping.” https://t.co/WzaqCu5ckc @JMitchellNews

1. I've seen the Slacks in which black staffers were chided for taking bathroom breaks 2. it's a shame Soraya had to leave in order to get the space to do her Pulitzer-finalist work 3. Karen obviously should have been included in the Pulitzer submission https://t.co/f0Pw8O8hQS

In a convo w @HigherHeightPAC, @KamalaHarris talked about a stigma faced by black girls and women across the world: ambition. "There have been a lot of black women recently who are coming up and saying, ‘I deserve that’ or ‘Yes I'm qualified’, and we should applaud that."
