ANALYSIS/OPINION:

There is a saying in the African-American community: “Don’t start none, won’t be none” (“The four noisy horseladies of the Apocalypse,” Web, July 15). These four congresswomen — Reps. Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib, Pressley and Omar — have been accusing everyone of racism ever since they were sworn in, even calling Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi a racist.

What they need to be doing instead is trying to secure legislation to reduce the spread of HIV, gun violence, health issues and poor public education for the citizens they represent. So, ladies, stop throwing out the word “racism” every chance you get for TV attention and social-media ratings. You’re in Congress now — grow up and do your jobs.
