    More race/gender baiting identity politics. Whatever happened to the best PERSON for the job? It doesn't matter anymore.

  • Low reviews, Not Surprised by 8

    Great film that follows three hopeful congresswomen. Of course grumpy white men are on here giving one star because... they feel threatened?

    I wonder how many sat through the film or just were irritated by the trailer. The film was emotionally gripping and was well worth the watch. I also liked that the majority of the crew were female as well. It's about time for women to take the wheel, Jesus is drunk.

  • Watch Breathlessly as White Women Endlessly Congratulate Themselves for Resisting...Themselves by 1

    White women, handily the largest voting block and ultimate decider of all US elections, casually co-opt black power first to glorify their stunning and brave resistance of the candidate they overwhelmingly voted for.
