Kamala Harris Isn’t African-American. She’s Ethnically Indian and Jamaican. That’s Not The Same Thing.


Joe Biden recently implied blacks in America are a monolith. Now, by calling his Vice Presidential pick Kamala Harris “African-American,” the media is endorsing his racist position that all blacks are the same.

While the media will continue to portray Harris as African-American, it’s important to note her mother was from India, and her father from Jamaica.

That’s not typically what people think of when they say “African-American”. I’m Indian, for example, and I don’t go around pretending to be black.

Political activist Ali Alexander — of half African extraction himself — noted the matter over a year ago, tweeting: “Kamala Harris is *not* an American Black. She is half Indian and half Jamaican. I’m so sick of people robbing American Blacks (like myself) of our history. It’s disgusting.”

He was met with derision from white liberal reporters in the establishment media, who demanded there was no difference.

The fact the Democrats would select an Indian-Jamaican candidate and bill them as African-American in year marred by Black Lives Matter riots would usually be unthinkable.

Then you remember they continuously call men who identify as women, “women,” and allow them to compete in women’s sports.

Of course this short post is going to send the media into a tailspin as they attempt to defend Harris and steer Biden toward the White House.

They’ll call this important distinction a “racial attack,” on Harris, as they have on the past. Even though the writer of this article shares an ethnic background with Harris: Indian.

But don’t take my word for it.

Kamala Harris’s own father has lashed out about her race-grifting, telling a Canadian magazine in 2019:

My dear departed grandmothers, as well as my deceased parents, must be turning in their grave right now to see their family’s name, reputation and proud Jamaican identity being connected, in any way, jokingly or not with the fraudulent stereotype of a pot-smoking joy seeker and in the pursuit of identity politics. Speaking for myself and my immediate Jamaican family, we wish to categorically dissociate ourselves from this travesty.

And I suspect there will be a large number of African-Americans across the United States who aren’t happy with their ethnicity or race being co-opted to suit a political candidate who shares little with them.

The same for the Native Americans who weren’t so hot on Elizabeth Warren prancing around pretending to be one of them, in order to further her career.

The truth many are learning, and that many already knew, is that the left does in fact class all immigrants as one group, and they ruthlessly attack ethnic minorities who deviate from the liberal plantation. I should know, I’ve been one of them.

Early on in my career I was told by a left-wing activist in the United Kingdom that I couldn’t be a conservative because I was brown.

“You’re one of us,” he said. Or words to that effect.

He later apologized, but the cat was out of the bag.

Kamala Harris needs to clarify, or go down as a race-grifter. She can’t run as an “African-American.” And the Trump campaign should not let the Democrats get away with co-opting race in this shameful way.
