Excerpts from this article:

The left is excited about Sen. Kamala Harris running for president because she’s a black female. But she’s not African American. The term “typically refers to descendants of enslaved black people who are from the United States.” Harris is half Jamaican and half Indian. And her father says their ancestors owned slaves.

However, [Sen. Kamala Harris] she’s trying to play the race card in the presidential election to attract the black vote…

Ali Alexander, an outspoken conservative activist who is half African American and half Arab, was disgusted with Harris pulling the race card during the debate. He called her out on her heritage Thursday. Alexander tweeted, “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. Now using it for debate time at #DemDebate2? These are my people not her people. Freaking disgusting.” Unlike Harris, Alexander’s ancestors lived through slavery and the Jim Crow era. Harris’ parents moved to the U.S. in 1960-61, the tail end of Jim Crow laws.

Hardly anyone else has dared to bring up Harris’ heritage, instead giving her a free pass for speaking out on African American issues. Harris also uses her black identity to talk about issues like reparations. This is even more absurd considering her ancestors owned slaves. But she talks about it as if she’s a victim.

Harris has a controversial record on race as California attorney general. She pursued tough-on-crime policies that some believe disproportionately hurt blacks. Harris “fought to keep people in prison even after they were proved innocent.” She “resisted calls to get her office to investigate certain police shootings.” Donald Trump, Jr. tweeted a few days ago, “Kamala Harris was for locking up non-violent offenders for a looooong time, before she was against it. Don’t be fooled, it took a Republican President to pass the FIRST STEP ACT!”

She had her sights set on a higher office, so she wanted to present herself as a tough-on-crime prosecutor. Critics label her a “cop,” which she welcomed, proudly calling herself “California’s top cop.”

Harris is using her black identity to get blacks excited about her campaign, hoping they’ll forget about her past history as a prosecutor

[Sen. Kamala Harris] She’s culturally appropriating African American culture for her own benefit. On her Senate website, she labels herself as African American.

During a radio interview in February, she claimed she smoked pot while listening to Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg in college. But she graduated from college in 1986, and those artists did not arrive on the scene until the early 1990s

    I believe Kamala Harris’ ancestry needs to be front and center so true African Americans can know the truth.
