Ari Melber talked to Eva Longoria about the projected Joe Biden win. Longoria talked about women coming out to vote and suggested that Latina women were the "real heroines" which then sparked backlash and someone accused her of "anti-blackness."
In response to one of Melber's questions, she said:
Yeah, I think you’re bringing up a good point. I think campaign financing needs to be looked at. I think the way in which we campaign. There were so many false ads in Florida in Spanish. Spanish wasn’t regulated the same as in English, and so I do think we need to take a look at that. Again, our work is just beginning...
But I want to talk about what you just said about the women. The women, of color, showed up in big ways. Of course you saw in Georgia what black women have done, but Latina women were the real heroines here, beating men in turnout in every state, voting for Biden-Harris at an average rate close to 3 to 1. And that wasn’t surprising to us. Latinas are the CEOs of the households; they make all the financial decisions and health care decisions and educational decisions. Many Latinas are small business owners and they wanted a plan for recovery for themselves, not for Wall Street, and so Trump’s policies were never aimed at the struggling Latina community.
Of course this guy Tariq showed up, like usual. But so did many others who wanted to spark some controversy and try to call her out. But to be fair, I don't think Eva Longoria was being "anti-black" on purpose, but she was just making her own Latina women sound strong. Of course, the people calling her "anti-black" are probably just looking for attention and making a big deal out of nothing. At some point Eva apologized, which was stupid, because she wasn't sitting there dumping on people on purpose and people likely took it out of context.Source: dailywire
