Conservatives Rip Lawmaker for White Men Comment: 'Needs to be Removed'

Article here. Excerpt:

'Democratic Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley has inspired conservative outrage online over a video clip showing her disapproval of "white men failing up."

Pressley, among the progressive House Democrats often collectively referred to as "the Squad," made the remark while addressing allegations of widespread sexual harassment and discrimination at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) during a House Financial Services Committee hearing on Wednesday.

The congresswoman said that she is a survivor of sexual violence while grilling FDIC Chair Martin Gruenberg over a report earlier this month alleging that the agency he leads is riddled with sexual misconduct. Pressley mentioned "white men" after questioning why most of the men accused of harassing their female colleagues received no disciplinary measures.

"I am so tired of white men failing up," she added. This lack of accountability is shameful, inadequate and deeply unsatisfactory, and it is re-traumatizing."'
