"OK, maybe you’re right but you couldn’t have done it without white women too. Kudos to women of colour but I don’t think they are overlooked. Let’s take the colour issue out of it and give each other credit."

@IanDrissy70 said:

"You couldn’t have done it without all the white women who voted for you at the same time in the elections, furthermore when you say directly it’s also missing the fact that not all black women vote or voted in one's favour. I am very pleased you have made history but make more."
