Eva Longoria on Election: “you saw in Georgia what Black women have done but Latina women are the real heroines here”
I’m sure *this* is going to fast track racial healing…
Identity politics always ends the same way, which is a lesson actress/activist Eva Longoria is soon to learn after her recent comments on MSNBC.
Said Longoria, “The women of color showed up in big ways. Of course, you saw in Georgia what Black women have done but Latina women are the real heroines here.”

Backlash was swift and revived a discussion on who falls into the “people of color” category:
Eva Longoria and Gina Rodriguez have actually done us a favour here, in showing why “People Of Colour” never benefits Black people. Some minorities will undermine Black achievements whenever they get the chance to do so and sideline us, never show up then have the most to say.

And now Eva Longoria
All deciding to join the anti black train? Miss me with this bullshit about sisterhood. EVERYONE loves shitting on black woman as their favourite pastime and it’s truly heartbreaking
