I’m gonna ignore the hate and celebrate this woman to the fullest because she honored so many women of color in her speech but stepping up to the plate and using her power to make a statement. And making history while she was at it, becoming the first Black woman to win the honor of Outstanding Actress in a Drama. She said what she said, and it needed to be said. And that is that.
