A new year brought the swearing-in of newly elected officials in Harris County, Texas , and among them were 17 black female judges.


The group of women, who were part of a local democratic campaign called "Black Girl Magic Texas," first made history -- and headlines-- when they won their respective midterm elections in November. Together, they make up what is believed to be the largest group of black female judges to be elected at the same time in Harris County history


The Harris County Democratic Party posted photos of the swearing-in ceremony, which took place on Tuesday morning.

"Today we usher in a new era of representative government and progressive leadership in Harris County," the group wrote.

Hidalgo has spoken at length about the importance of diversity in Harris County's government. "We made history in Harris County on November 6 by electing a talented group of individuals who reflect the people and communities we serve," she said in a press release for Tuesday's ceremony. "That would not have been possible without the support of the residents of Harris County."

As I said over at ASF, I hope this was due to their qualifications and not their skin color.

Another very racist attack on True Americans.
