In a Blavity Politics exclusive interview on Wednesday, Waters sounded off on finding out she was one of the intended victims. In her response, Waters spoke to how President Trump’s hateful rhetoric has only helped to incite various hateful attacks that have unfolded since his time in office.
“I don’t know whether the bombs are real or not, but we should not crawl under the bed, close the doors, not go out, be afraid to go to rallies,” she said. “We have to keep to doing what we’re doing in order to make this country right; that’s what I intend to do, and as the young people say, ‘I ain’t scared.'”
Blavity bills itself as a site for black millennials.
