The job ahead of her is not an easy one, but I am fully confident that she will be able to handle it because let’s face it, if you want something done, you really just have to get a Black woman to do it.
Congratulations, Karen Bass. You Deserve.
Rick Caruso thought he was going to be able to buy his way into becoming the Mayor of Los Angeles, but it did not work out the way he thought. After spending more than $100 million of his own money and outspending Karen bass 11 to 1, he lost, and Los Angeles has it’s first woman, first Black woman, and only the second Black person in history to be mayor.
She deserves. My latest at theGrio.
I want LA people to think about the fact that Rick Caruso spent $100 million of his own money for this mayoral election. $100 million! To run for MAYOR. Not President of the United States. MAYOR. He claims to care for the homeless. Guess what that $100 million could have done?
Rick Caruso is still a Republican. He is out for a power grab. He is helping further the agenda that is happening across this country. Please don’t let him. Our city deserves better.
Imagine the type of power the GOP and the right could wield having an inside man like Rick Caruso as the mayor of the largest city in the state of California and the second largest city in the country after NYC.
Please don’t let them do this. The right taking over this country will make this even more of a nightmare than what we are already living.
Bass then asked her question even more directly than she did the first time: “Is there a term or a report on white identity extremists? You mentioned you are familiar with black people who identify with their racial identity.”
Rep. Karen Bass Ate Jeff Sessions for Lunch and It Was Delicious
For The Root, I gave a play-by-play commentary on a video that showed the time then-Congresswoman Karen Bass grilled former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions about an FBI report that indicated “Black Identity Extremists Likely Motivated to Target Law Enforcement Officers.” No, seriously. That was the name of the report.
