Earlier this week Vice President Kamala Harris interacted with several Black women leaders at her office in the West Wing of the White House. During this meeting held on December 6, Harris discussed the progress on the Build Back Better Act, the administration's effort to amplify and implement the Bipartisan Infrastructure law, and voting rights. This was a follow-up to the meeting where the same group of 18 women convened on July 16 to discuss protecting the fundamental right to vote. One of them was Cora Barry, the former First Lady of the District of Columbia and a board member of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation (NCBCP). Harris received a lot of flak for interacting with Barry who once said "f**k white women" during a Zoom meeting in November 2020.

The controversial comment was made while on the call with Melanie Campbell. Barry quickly corrected herself saying, "Excuse me -- forget the white women. They're going to do what the white men tell them to do." She continued, "They be smiling in their faces, they want to stay in charge. I don't care nothing about them, we gotta do what we gotta do." In the same meeting, Barry had compared supporters of the former President to members of the Ku Klux Klan. She said, "I’m not saying everyone who voted for Trump is wearing a white sheet, but they got one in their closet and it comes out when we start messing with the economic value or the balance of power." She also said that her group has "gotta get real serious" about getting Harris in the Oval Office after she advocated for Biden to win the 2020 Presidential elections.

The White House press release stated that the leaders engaged with Harris "on specific provisions of the Build Back Better Act that would benefit all communities, including the Child Tax Credit, Universal Pre-K, and investments in childcare. They discussed the importance of ensuring all Americans have accessible and affordable high-speed internet, which the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law makes possible." Others leaders present during this meeting included Campbell, Minyon Moore, Dr Barbara Williams Skinner, Clayola Brown, Bishop Leah Daughtry, Joi Chaney, Ebony Riley, Shavon Arline, Roslyn Arline-Bradley, Roslyn Brock, and Karen Finney.

Also joining them were Rachel Noerdlinger, Jotaka Eaddy, Salandra Benton, Glynda Carr, Tameka Ramsey, Carol Joyner, and Joycelyn Tate. But Harris was slammed for particularly associating with Barry. "Make no mistake folks. Cora Masters Barry is a full-fledged, card-carrying racist. For shame to all who supported this. Shameful!! This includes you @VP and @MayorBowser. The division you continuously create and stoke is a terrible legacy you are striving for!" a tweet read. "What is Pres Bide/VP Harris doing to stop racism. Democrats donor Cora Masters Barry goes on ZOOM & says F___ WH women. No one says anything about this. I am not a racist, but if a WH person had said this the press, black coalition's, Dems & WH House would be all over this," another wrote. "Cora Masters Barry is a black supremacist and a vicious racist. I wonder what vote fraud ideas came up in her discussion with Kamala Harris? What a disgusting bunch of haters," read another vitriol-laden tweet.
