Auntie Maxine: Black Womanhood In Age of Trump’s America

New York

California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters, who has been outspoken against Trump from the first day he took office. She has held back no punches letting her constituents and the world know that President Trump is a racist and a bigot.


Waters stood her ground in January 2017 when she and other black members of Congress boycotted his State of the Union address, saying, “I don’t honor him, I don’t respect him, and I don’t want to be involved with him.” Water also didn’t attend the 2018 State the Union address.

Because if he of her outspokenness and truthfulness when dealing with this racist president, Waters who has been affectionately called Auntie Maxine by many because her brash openness sounds like your favorite auntie tell you the truth about a situation. What we see is a “Woke” Black Woman Speaking Truth to Power. She is doing what Black politicians or should I say the Democratic Party should be doing; calling a spade a spade, a racist a racist and opening our eyes to a White Supremacist in the White House while being scared of who in the Democrat or Republican Party don’t like it.

Recently, an owner of a restaurant in Virginia asked White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders to leave because the owner disagreed with the policies of the Trump Administration. Of courts this outraged many Republicans and even Trump.

Waters responded at a rally in California, Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd, and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere!”

This comment is far from violent and she has kept her grace, style and poise as a black woman but the Democrats have turn their backs in her.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer distanced himself from Waters, saying during a floor speech, “I strongly disagree with those who advocate harassing folks if they don’t agree with you. If you disagree with a politician, organize your fellow citizens to action and vote them out of office. But no one should call for the harassment of political opponents. That’s not right. That’s not American.”

Nancy Pelosi went his on Twitter, “…we must strive to make America beautiful again”

While the Democratic Party wants to be cowards this racist president is destroying the little freedom and conscious this county has.

As we say in the in the black community, Waters has kept it 100 and care less what other spineless Democrats think. As a 79-year-old Black Woman who has been on the front line for black people for decades. She is a torchlight for what black Political womanhood is in an age of Trumps America.
