Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Ca.) exuded the ultimate class, grace and strength on Tuesday.
The congresswoman responded to Bill O’Reilly’s racist and sexist insult about her hair with words that deserve to be a daily affirmation.
Waters paraphrased her powerful words in a tweet using the hashtag #BlackWomenAtWork, amplified by activist Brittany Packnett in response to the disrespect the representative and White House correspondent April D. Ryan endured on Tuesday.
HuffPost Black Voices was so inspired by Waters’ response that we decided to highlight even more women. Using the hashtag #StrongBlackWoman, we asked our Twitter followers to tell us what makes them a boss.
