“This is a young country built on racism,” Dagg wrote. “Black people have been disenfranchised for over 250 years. The faster white people accept and validate the truth, the closer we’ll come to a place of peace and understanding.

“Fighting racism is dependent on me using my white privilege for the right reasons,” she added.

“The white woman tried to use her white privilege on me, the fact that I am white too seemed to have slipped her mind,” she wrote, adding, “If you see it, say something.”

"I just felt it was important to point President Trump amazingly attacked Fox News in the last few days in a series of Tweets for coverage he viewed as unfavorable to his administration," Schumer said. "This is Fox News, a news outlet that frankly is 90% or more on the president’s side. Their most popular shows seem to just be cheerleaders for President Trump."
