In an online post , Fifth District Congresswoman Jahana Hayes says she is exhausted, and she is “not ok,” after a group of people posted obscene racial insults during her recent online listening session with residents. Hayes said the comments are not about policy or politics; they are about racism. Hayes said Black women are expected to press on and ignore this behavior, but she said words matter and they cut deep. Hayes recently returned to online public appearances, after recovering from COVID-19.
