Omarosa has this White House on edge. They, including Trump, are really shook! Just spoke with my boss and she made a great point: like her or not (y'all know my thoughts on that), Omarosa is playing Trump's game better than him so far. She has tapes, likely lots of them.
There are so many of us who've had less than positive experiences with Omarosa, but she is very media-savvy, smart. She is political animal in her own right. We have NO IDEA what else she has recorded. Or Who. And neither does Trump or his associates. That scares them. A lot.
Omarosa may have broken security protocols that may get her in trouble (another story), but the fact that we don't know what dirt she has recorded on Trump puts her in a powerful position. She has a poker face and may very well have the high hand. We don't know. That's her power.

Exhibit A:

Her hair is in braids. A white man pulls the bottom of the braid and says:

"What horse you brought that from?"

That middle school era is always awkward, but you don’t realize the difficulty of it fr a black student until you’re thrown against a stark white background. At a young age, I was forced to do a lot of soul searching in order to define who I was

I think people fall into three camps: Informed, uninformed, and not concerned when it comes to Diversity and Inclusion.
Informed: You understand that advancing women and women of color in the workplace takes work, and you are a voice for others as well as a creator of more seats at the table. We applaud you for your work and your willingness to bridge the gap.
Frankly, it takes a village, and if true equality is ever to be obtained, we need women of all colors being resources and advocates for each other in a society that oftentimes thinks of WOC as an afterthought.
