#DayoftheGirl 1. I thought for sure that the media would be spotlighting Sen. @KamalaHarris's presidential presence at last night's #EqualityTownHall on a loop this morning. They're not. Are we lying to our daughters when we tell them that they can be anything they want?
2. Honest questions: What am I supposed to tell my black daughters? Do I *really* continue to tell them that hard work and preparation will always be recognized? Must I continue to defend the *opinions* of those who appear to not recognize the power of their voices?
3. There are so many little girls - black girls - who are witnessing Sen. @KamalaHarris shape history in full color.

These are my daughters, and they see Senator Harris as an inspiration. Don't they deserve that?

Why do people continue to try to erase history in the making?
4. I really *pray* that some of the media outlets begin to look into the psychology of their coverage because, in my humble opinion, it is becoming increasingly deceptive.
5. To answer all of my questions: I will continue to tell them that they can be anything they want to be with hard work and preparation. And, I will also tell them to write today's history with microscopic precision because their granddaughters must picture it in full color, too.
