While We Were Out: Ivanka Trump “All Lives Matter”-ed Black History Month

Jared Kushner, in a tux, and Ivanka Trump, in a floor-length silver gown, pose in front of a mirror the day after Donald Trump issued his Muslim ban

Ivanka Trump shown here in the $5,000 Carolina Herrera gown she wore for Date Night as protesters swamped airports following the signing and immediate shitstorm enactment of her dad’s Muslim ban.

Feministe was recently down with technical issues, so of course that’s when Ivanka Trump would unload the dual Twitter turd of underscoring her father’s flat-out incompetence and super-duper racism in issues relating to equality, dignity, opportunity, and/or race whilst negating the “Black” part of Black History Month. In celebration of Black History Month, of course.

Good job name-dropping all the black history figures she could name off the top of her head. (Except for Frederick Douglass, who apparently gets no credit for the amazing job he’s done.) Just from an optics standpoint, she might have done better to shy away from subjects that called to mind the equality and dignity her father has afforded to John Lewis, the Central Park Five, black NFL players, La David and Myeshia Johnson, Frederica Wilson, April Ryan, everyone in Charlottesville not carrying a tiki torch, sorry, I need to go get a drink of water.

The more salient point, of course, is that black history gets ONE MONTH, and it’s the SHORTEST MONTH, and Ivanka Trump COULDN’T EVEN GIVE BLACK PEOPLE THAT. To paraphrase my mom when I asked why there’s no Children’s Day: SISTER, EVERY DAY IS IVANKA DAY.
