Meet the six black female @GOP candidates for Congress

Can you believe it? Only 7 days to the 2018 midterm elections.

Ebony magazine recently had a feature on 18 African-American women running for Congress:

The problem was that all 18 women were Democrats.  After a lot of outrage, Ebony changed the title of its article to Meet the 18 Black Democratic Women Running for a Seat in Congress.

While African-American Democratic female candidates for Congress outnumber African-American Republican female candidates for Congress 3-1, the six African-American Republican 🐘 female candidates for Congress deserve to be highlighted.  If Ebony won’t do it, Cold Cream ‘n’ Roses will!

While watching the last Republican National Convention, the lack of diversity among delegates became painfully obvious.  I thought that Mia Love and Nikki Haley were presented as tokens.

I hope that there will be many many more women and minorities running as Republicans.  I want to show that the Democratic Party no longer owns women and minorities.  I want to show that the Republican Party is no longer the Party of Old White Men ℒ️
