In less than 24 hours, a prominent black Congresswoman was ridiculed over her hair because she dared to speak up, while another respected black veteran reporter was chastised like a child for simply doing her job.

“I didn’t hear a word she said. I was looking at the James Brown wig,” Fox News host Bill O’Reilly said Tuesday morning of Rep. Maxine Waters. O’Reilly had just finished watching her House floor address criticizing President Donald Trump.

Earlier that same day at the White House, Press Secretary Sean Spicer scolded correspondent April Ryan for shaking her head during his answer.

“Stop shaking your head,” Spicer demanded of Ryan like he was a teacher and she was a child in his classroom.
