But now, she is REAL!

A little SCOOPLET in Playbook PM: The White House has begun sending invitations to an event celebrating Jackson’s confirmation Friday afternoon at the White House.
I'm told Biden, Harris and Jackson are all expected to attend.

History doesn't happen by accident. 81 million people voted for @POTUS in a pandemic to make it possible for the first Black woman @VP to preside over the confirmation of the first Black woman to serve on #SCOTUS. If you voted, you helped make this happen. https://t.co/rRzv04SEsp

Oh we as black women FELT the disrespect and Microaggression filth the GOP gave freely to Judge Jackson . We have lived it in workplaces, felt it in our neighborhoods and even social media. Our memories are long .We will vote in the midterms. And we remember the insurrection.

This moment has hit me stronger than I anticipated. To say I am overwhelmed with joy is an understatement.
I am going to celebrate this historic day offline.

Have you thought ab the fact that we wouldn't have a Black woman on the US Supreme Court had the racist birther won a second term?
Elections have consequences!
Never take your right to vote for granted!
VOTE. VOTE. VOTE.
