Kamala Harris wanted to go to a black school. That's what black folks called Howard University in the early 1980s when Harris was a teenager considering her future.

And it all comes down to race once again.
“It was where Harris could become the woman that her mother always knew her to be: unquestionably, simply, black.”
Her mother is Tamil Indian.
Dems and the propagandists are insane.
Obama is blacker than her and he aint black.
And then she married a white guy.
“Friends remember her big earrings and red lipstick. Her dark hair, clipped into curly layers, framed her face. She was a cool girl with honey-colored skin. She was disarmingly warm with a boisterous laugh - the same one that punctuates her campaign speeches”
Gosh, what a dreamy girl, huh? Sounds like something out of TeenBeat!
How objective of the Chronicle. But they’d do a nice wrap on the young Don Trump, right? Right?!
Most of her “color” comes from her Indian mother, her Jamaican father is almost as white as I am.
She has no connection to the African American experience or community.
Good thing the founders put that natural born citizen thing in the Constitution......../s
Yep - the lefties suffer from Chronic Perceived Racism Syndrome. Might be an incurable mental disorder. Skin pigmentation rules!
At the time I got my political science degree from Wayne State University, it had the largest proportion of blacks enrolled outside of “traditional black colleges” in the United States.
I learned about harmonious cooperation of diverse types of people. I’m incorrectly still called a white racist deplorable Trump supporter. Guilty of everything but the racist part.
In Woody Allen’s Sleeper he said “I was in my senior year in college when I died was was frozen for the future. Majored in Black Studies. If I had finished I would have been black by now.”
That’s what Willie Brown liked and she had to play the part to get all those cushy jobs and raises. She spent so much time on her back, she probably got vertigo when she stood up.
Wow, Ive lived in DC and Atlanta for my entire life, I must be blacker than her, or Obama.
“I learned about harmonious cooperation of diverse types of people.”
I’ve experienced that most of my adult life. As a simple consequence of the freedom of the USA.
From their rhetoric and actions, liberals and Democrats are against “harmonious cooperation of diverse types of people”.
“Sleeper” was one of the two funniest, greatest movies Woody ever made. The other was “ Grab the money and Run.” Everything else thereafter was down hill.
Some of us still consider the content of one’s character to be more important. But we’re the quaint old-fashioned sort.
Her “black” part is mostly white, inherited from one of Jamaica’s most successful slave owners and exploiters.
Still love 80% of his movies. Funny lines will come into my (sick) mind at various times.
“Uncle was genuinely insane. He believed he was a chicken. Really believed it.”
“Couldn’t someone cure him? Pills or therapy?”
“We thought about it. But were a poor family. We needed the eggs.”
It was where Harris could become the woman that her mother always knew her to be: unquestionably, simply, black.
That might make sense if her mother were Black, but her mother was from India.
Why is she thinking or knowing that her daughter is "unquestionably, simply, black?"
"Her mother was Indian," says Lenore Pomerance, who was a close friend of Shyamala Gopalan, "but in the '60s, you were either black or white. There was no real distinction between Caribbean or Indian."
In England, maybe, but so far as the US is concerned, that's ridiculous. Even in Canada, there was quite a difference between Jamaicans and Indians.
She is one of them, even if they mispronounce her name. (It's KAM-ala.)
Or as she says "Comma-la." Maybe the name is pronounced that way and maybe it isn't. It isn't pronounced quite that way in Tamil or Hindi, and the suspicion - right or wrong - is that she says "Comma-la" to make her name sound more like "Pamela."
Or maybe "Kamala" comes from Finnish, where it means "horrible" or "terrible."
Its okay, the white guy got their second, batting cleanup.
So her doctor Indian mother was smart enough to know Camel-a would get affirmative action advantages if she leaned toward her fake black/Jamaican roots.
(Right now Lori Laughlin is wishing she were a “persecuted” minority...)
It seems so.
Thank God she was not named Dudu Puquala, she may have been traumatized.
