Hillary Clinton is coming to the defense of Congresswoman Maxine Waters and reporter April Ryan who were both recently targeted by White, pompous, right winged men.

During the Professional Business Women of California conference on Tuesday afternoon, Trump’s presidential campaign opponent opened up to a large crowd about the sexism that exists in the workplace, especially when it comes to Black women.

“Just look at all that’s happened in the last two days to women who were simply doing their jobs,” she said. “Too many women, especially women of color, have had a lifetime of practice taking precisely these kinds of indignities in stride. But why should we have to. And any woman who thinks this couldn’t be directed at her is living in a dream world.”

Both incidents not only sparked outage across the country, but sparked the now viral hashtag, #BlackWomenAtWork.

Earlier this week, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly suggested he couldn’t pay attention to Waters’ recent comments on Donald Trump supporters because he “was looking at the James Brown wig. Do we have a picture of James Brown? It’s the same wig.”

Mere hours after Bill’s controversial remarks became a national headline, American Urban Radio Networks reporter April Ryan was targeted by White House press secretary Sean Spicer. After Ryan suggested the White House has a Russia issue to tackle, Spicer fired back: “Please, stop shaking your head again.”

The attack on Black women from the right really shouldn’t be surprising to anyone. African Americans, particularly women, were not fans of Trump or his politics. Exit polls taken in November show that 94% of African American women voted for Secretary Clinton during the 2016 Presidential election.

Quincy Jones’ Diarrhea Mouth Intervention: My Family Stepped In … I Learned My Lesson

Published

Quincy Jones made headlines earlier this month for spilling all kinds of hot and juicy tea about Hollywood legends and power players, including Richard Pryor.

During an interview with Vulture, the music mogul suggested that Pryor slept with Marlon Brando. In that same interview, Jones claimed “I used to date Ivanka, you know. Tommy Hilfiger, who was working with my daughter Kidada, said, ‘Ivanka wants to have dinner with you.’”

He continued, “I said, ‘No problem. She’s a fine motherf*cker.’ She had the most beautiful legs I ever saw in my life. Wrong father, though.”

But it didn’t end there. Jones also seemingly fueled old rumors that he and Tevin Campbell once had relations. And in another interview with GQ magazine, Quincy claimed he had 22 girlfriends and that his daughters gave him new age limits to date; specifically, 28-42.

The overwhelming and shocking amount of information unveiled, however, was just TOO much and his family decided to step in.

In a lengthy, and we mean lengthy, statement released by Jones, he admitted to receiving an intervention by his six daughters. “Let me tell you, I’m so grateful for my daughters because they aren’t scared to stand up to their daddy. I am an imperfect human & I’m not afraid to say it. And I’m sorry & I’m not afraid to say it.”

He continued,” When you’ve been fortunate enough to have lived a long & crazy life … certain details about specific events come flooding back all at once, & even at 85, it’s apparent that ‘wordvomit’ & bad-mouthing is inexcusable.”

Jones, who also called the Trump family “rednecks” during one of his many interviews, explained that “one of the hardest things about this situation is that this bad-mouthing has contradicted the very real messages I tried to relay about racism, inequality, homophobia, poverty … you name it.”

The music icon concluded with an apology to “anyone whom my words offended” and his “friends who are still her with me & to those who aren’t.”
