Amber Ruffin, Dulce Sloan, Robin Thede and Yamaneika Saunders. Do you know who they are?! Comedians
Black women comedians got a chance to get voices heard on late night tv.
Amber Ruffin does regular recurring segments on @LateNightSeth. She talks about race, gender and pop culture.
Dulce Sloan is a new correspondent to @TheDailyShow. She has been stand up comedy for years.
Yamaneika Saunders is a stand-up comedian. I am not sure if she has been on @FallonTonight before this week.
Robin Thede is the host of her show on BET. She was formerly the head writer of the Nightly Show.
So when the hashtag #blackwomen started trending on Wednesday morning, some of the late night shows scrambled to have black women represented.
It is a damn shame that it took a special election in Alabama for black women comedians to get some attention.
I am going to all the comedians that I know in the thread who should get some shine. Follow them.

Look at what has happened to Cat Sadler, Carrie Gracie and Michelle Williams. There is no transparency about pay equity. #PAYUP.
Nine years ago, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act was passed. Yet nothing has changed. #PayUp

The @nytimes does access journalism for 45; and Real reporting for everything else.
The New York Times should put any "articles" about 45 under an advertorial heading.
It's click bait.

Our shame structures aren't working. - @zephoria
Roy Moore can't be shamed.
Toupee Fiasco can't be shamed.
Their supporters can't be shamed.
Media is wasting time to trying to shame them. Focus on removing them from the public discourse. Decenter them from the conversation.
