It’s about time !
Letitia “Tish” James broke the glass ceiling when she became the first black woman to win the primary for Democratic nominee to attorney general in New York.
If she wins the general election, Tish would be a stark change from the last elected AG, Eric Schneiderman, who was forced to resign because four women accused him of physical abuse during sex.
This is just what we needed with all that’s happening in Washington with Donnie in charge.
From the jump, Tish was not with the foolishness and has always stood up for our people as the Public Advocate of New York City.
“This campaign was never really about me or any of the candidates who ran,” Tish said in her victory speech. “It was about the people, but mostly it was about that man in the White House who can’t go a day without threatening our fundamental rights.”
Tish will be running against Republican candidate Keith Wofford in November but with the Democrats vastly outnumbering Republicans in the state, Tish is likely to become the first black woman to win a statewide office, which is only five years after becoming the first black woman elected to citywide office in New York okurrrrrrrt.
And the gag is, Nicki isn’t stoppin’ her bag! As a matter of fact, Nicki and Diddy announced their support for her just one day before the primary race.
So sis is most definitely winning, which means we, the people, are winning too!
Tish was born and raised in Brooklyn, and the night of her victory that’s exactly where she celebrated.
A community leader in Crown Heights said she “brings a lot of hope to black and brown people,” well was he lying?
Tish is for minorities and immigrants, she’s for protecting and securing the rights of our people and she’s for equality.
It’s time for us to stop complaining and to help sis help us out!
Go vote Nov. 6.
