My children aren't trying to use race as for political or any advantage.  They don't attempt to self-identify except as American. They move between both ethnic groups as far as cultural issues are concerned, but not for any type of minority advantage.  That is apparently what this lady is attempting.

Should race be a factor? You and kid boy seem to think so.

============================================

I do not but Ms Harris has used her race ...saying she is the only black in the Democratic race...be it true or not...she owns it.

I see this issue was on CBS News tonight....sorry but the issue will not go away. It might just offend African Americans.

No, she never said that. She said she was the only black person on this stage at the second of two democratic primary debates.

No I don't.  Just questioning why this is being brought up by the candidate.  Much like Warren bringing up Native American ancestry in political matters. 

 

Our children are multi-racial but don't claim either, just enjoys the advantages of both ethnic groups.  But then again they are not looking for political advantage.

Almost all African Americans, those descended from slavery , have European white genes. About 20% in their DNA, on average. If Harris’ father has some white ancestry, he’s in keeping with everyone else. One drop rule. In case you forgot your history. 


She not only has Black ancestry, but that of South Asia.  So would children of Caucasian/Asian parents be called Asian or Caucasian? 

 

Her Indian (country) heritage seems to be more predominant than that of Black Jamaican, with her father saying there was White heritage.

 

Another candidate has more claim to being Black (with the Black experience) than she does, but should race be a factor in electing the President?

 

But a person believes what they want to believe, facts withstanding.


Please tell us the answer to your first statement. No one but her has any idea which heritage is more predominant, and what difference does it make anyway. Why bring up something like this and then make a statement race should not be a factor. The statement makes it a factor. What happened here is the same way the birther factor got started by Trump and we all know why he did it. To rile up his base about President Obama. Trump Jr. started this by a retweet for the same purpose to rile up the base. Now Trump Jr. took it down so he is not as bad as his father.

This is a topic that is big news today. Only to those who think they know about one's race more than they do.  Why is it "big news"?

Again ...Is she Black like she says?  Why is that important?  Maybe you should demand a DNA test.  It's amazing some want to know how black someone is.....why?  Is it better if she is more black, or less?  Was she born in the US?  Isn't that the only requirement?

 


Some people just can’t handle the changing face of America. We are a nation of immigrants. Kamala is the child of immigrants. She’s as American as we get.
