Eva Longoria Slammed For Downplaying Role Of Black Women In Election: “Latina Women Were The Real Heroines”

Published: Monday 9th Nov 2020 by Sam

Eva Longoria is under fire and trending for all the wrong reasons this morning.

The actress and ardent Democrat was interviewed by MSNBC about Joe Biden becoming the president-elect  of the United States after pulling off a historic win.

With analysts beginning to weigh-in on the data surrounding how he won, the ‘Desperate Housewives’ star was approached for her take.

Suffice to say, her words have sparked controversy.

Find out why below…

Speaking to MSNBC about the impact of women on the election result, Longoria said:

“The Women of color showed up in a big rates. Of course in Georgia, you saw what Black women have done. But Latina women were the real heroines. Beating men in every State and voting for Biden and Harris.”

Watch:

Her words sparked a seismic debate.

For, while minorities collectively showed up and showed out in support of the president elect, the sheer volume of the Black vote (particularly in key decisive States such as Georgia) prompted Biden himself to specifically thank the Black community in his victory speech.

As at writing, folk on Twitter have expressed outrage:

 

With that, what are…

    But when you tell folks Latinos are not your allies they get mad? Just look at how they treat their own Afro Latino brothers and sisters. They are so desperate to be white adjacent. Black people need to remove themselves from the POC Label.

      “They” generalized all Latinos… Stop. Ok me person spoke that’s it. Leave it at that. I’m sure you f*** w Latinos and this little quote won’t change that.

      • tyty November 9, 2020

        Learn how to read and write moron. I don’t f*** with Latinos you’re not important or even a factor hence the declaration to be included in conversations about black women, not the other way round. Stay pressed and mad. Niether the President nor VP acknowledged your asses despite licking white man’s asshole 24/7. Bye ashy.

        Here is a little tidbit. Trump did acknowledge y’all but only to throw y’all in cages, build walls and call you rapists… Let that sink in.

      Not bothered by a racist. You’re guided by your emotions. That’s weak.
      Latinos make a huge portion of the worlds population and contribute immensely to the US.

      You are a sad person with a peanut sized brain.

    -He even spoke it his funeral and called him a mentor .
    -Biden called black people super predators!!
    -Biden was for segregation on buses he said “ he didn’t want his kids in a racial jungle “
    -Biden Family was money laundering with China & Russia through Hunter Biden
    -Hunter had ChildP on his computer and was messing with his dead brothers wife and kid .

  10. #TheTruth November 9, 2020

    By having this very debate, each and every one of them is wrong.
    What is fu<king wrong with that country ?
    Geez can you just stop labeling people with their origins ?
    The majority has spoken, white, black, latinos, asians and everything in between. Stop trying to pull the blanket on your side. Enjoy the moment all together and stop dividing yourselves.
    The fu<k seriously, what a stupid mentality that is being recycled over and over and over again.

    Sorry for typos

    TGJ stop spreading this nonsense…it’s not a competition among women of color as to which group among us made the largest contribution. The point is all women of color contributed significantly. We can’t afford and don’t have the time or luxury to be bickering among us. Ignoring the few people on Twitter who are bickering over something that doesn’t matter. I’m going to give her the benefit of the doubt and assume that she just wanted to make sure the contribution of Latina women is not being overlooked and is being as recognized as that of black women. We have other things to concentrate on (like the runoffs in Georgia) and need to continue working together for the benefit of all of us.

    • Slick November 9, 2020

      Anne I agree w you.

  14. Exlurker November 9, 2020

    I honestly thought that she was comparing Latino females to males in the turn outs. It didn’t help that it came after talking about Black women. I seriously don’t think she meant any disrespect.
