    Why it all has to be about your race?? I CARE ABOUT WHAT YOU DO.. not about the skin you were born.

      The problem is all of the people in this Country that don’t agree with you.

      The same people who tell us to look passed race are the same people who only see it.

      Just follow this simple step every day: treat people with dignity and respect as you would like to treated. The rest will work itself out. That’s all you need to do my friend.

    SHE IS NOT THE MAYOR OF BOSTON. SHE IS THE ACTING MAYOR OF BOSTON. MSNBC ALWAYS EMPHASIZES THAT DISTINCTION WHEN IT APPLIES TO ANY REPUBLICAN.

  7. So many amazing, strong women standing up for what is right, in US politics, it gives me hope for our country’s future.

      Yet there are margarie trailer Greene, and laren boeburt, and other extremists of the far right variety. Those women are horrible people.

    • @David Alexander Those women are dragging the republican party down with their obvious scatterbrained nonsense. Eventually they’ll help drive social justice forward, just like Trump did. We wouldn’t be able to advance the Green New Deal without the previous administration’s polarizing policies.

      I dunno about driving social just and policies. People on the right just don’t care about those issues, and people on the left will need to keep the fire and passion going for that. Meanwhile those nasty republican women that I mentioned are in place to do lasting damage on Congress and to this country.

      I’m confused about your position on the trump mob members that are being held in custody. You said in another thread that they shouldn’t spend even one day in jail. Are you frocking kidding me? SMH

  8. Taking her responsibility as a role model seriously 👍🏾 👍🏻❤️

  9. David Alexander | April 8, 2021 at 10:37 AM | Reply

    She is just wonderful.

  10. The woman’s 56….Black don’t crack 😊

  11. We need people like this in the UK. Strong, intelligent empathetic. We have a bunch of kleptomaniac right wingers at the moment hollowing us out and aquiring wealth and power for their own sakes. Please send us people like her America!

  12. Boston has been a majority-minority city since 2000.
