Tlaib to Pelosi: Be Mindful of “Singling Out” Women of Color


Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib has some new pointers for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. In the wake of controversial tweets from President Trump, “The Squad” sat down for an interview with CBS This Morning.

During this interview, Reps. Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley spoke about their relationship with Pelosi. However, Tlaib had some very direct statements. The representative urged Pelosi to be mindful of criticizing herself and the remaining 75% of “The Squad.”

Reviewing Tlaib’s Message to Pelosi

The congresswoman stated that she and her colleagues are frequently targets of death threats and other harassment. Tlaib, therefore, stated that Pelosi ought to be mindful of death threats and the fact that “The Squad” is comprised of women of color.

Tlaib’s remarks on this issue read as follows:

“She is speaker of the House. She can ask for a meeting to sit down with us for clarification. Acknowledge the fact that we are women of color. So when you do single us out, be aware of that and what you’re doing, especially because some of us are getting death threats, because some of us are being singled out in many ways because of our backgrounds, because of our experiences and so forth.”
