No matter how many times the news media calls her America’s first black VP (or Black VP) candidate, Sen. Kamala Harris is not black and definitely not African-American.
She is mixed race. She considers herself American but if that isn’t good enough for you then Jamaican-American is a good way of describing her.
While the American Media still wishes to portray black people as somehow victims after 150 years of freedom and 50 years of Affirmative Action and Non-Discrimination Clauses, Sen. Harris isn’t a victim of American Slavery. She is not now and never has been an American Negro. She was born in SFO and was fortunate enough to have been gifted with good genes from a Jamaican father and an East Indian mother. For those who don’t know, Jamaica is a friendly island in the Caribbean.
She has a powerful intellect and has challenged many professional politicians (and their sycophants) along the way. She is a good choice. She brings hope that good people still exist in American government.
She has some hurdles to overcome but she is capable, experienced, and a formidable debater. I hope she makes it.
