Ebony magazine ran an article highlighting women running for Congress. In it, they discussed 18 women.
“This midterm election is one to watch with all 435 seats in the U.S. House up for grabs. Meet the 18 black women vying for a congressional seat,” Ebony writer Sarafina Wright said.
On a smaller stage, but equally as powerful, the U.S. House of Representatives has 18 Black women on the ballot who seek to push America forward. Meet the 18 Black women vying for a congressional seat! https://t.co/MFCCs3VbPS

Guess who they LEFT OUT.
Those running as REPUBLICANS.
Yup. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.
“Meet the 18 black women vying for a congressional seat” sounds like there are ONLY 18 black women vying for a congressional seat, does it not?
Here are the ones they left out:
- Congresswoman Mia Love is running for reelection in Utah’s 4th Congressional District
- Aja Smith is running for California’s 41st Congressional District
- Virginia Fuller is running for Florida’s 5th Congressional District
- Liz Matory is running for Maryland’s 2nd Congressional District
- Jineea Butler is running for New York’s 13th Congressional District
- Charlotte Bergmann is running for Tennessee’s 9th Congressional District
DO THEY NOT COUNT, EBONY MAGAZINE?
I’m sorry… but are they not the “right type” of black women?
PS Hannah and I had the pleasure of meeting Liz Matory at CPAC earlier this year. She is absolutely lovely.

This is absolutely shameful.
