Brooke Baldwin Calls Out Trump’s Racist Attacks Against Black Journalists

It’s been quite the week when it comes to the characterization of white women in relation to politics. We were reminded again that many of them are unwilling to cast a ballot for a black candidate — even if said candidate promises to fight for policies in their best interest (see: Andrew Gillum and Stacey Abrams.)

Then Bernie Sanders, the internet’s favorite socialist savior, went on record with The Daily Beast (full disclosure, I work for them) in saying that white people are “uncomfortable” voting for black people. All in all, it’s been a doozy.

Why Serena Williams’ Loss Stung For Black Women

Thankfully, CNN’s Brooke Baldwin offers a glimmer of hope. The anchor called out Trump’s bigoted insults on April Ryan, Abby D. Phillip, and Yamiche Alcindor, whom he referred to as “racist, stupid, and nasty” in her closing remarks.

We have a long way to go in our journey toward allyship, but this was definitely a step in the right direction. Don’t call yourself an ally if you’d never stick your neck out for a woman of color. Watch the clip for yourself.
