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?

The big news is Trump Jr retweeted a racist trope. 

 

Harris’ race is not big news. Every literate person knows she’s black. 


Her mother is from India; her father is Jamaican with a heritage of black and possibly white.  "Recalling the lives of his grandmothers, Donald Harris wrote that one was related to a plantation and slave owner while the other had unknown...."


All of that is irrelevant and meant to stir up controversy where this is none. 

 

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.

Part of the link...

 

Washington (CNN)Sen. Kamala Harris pushed back Saturday against online attacks about her race, comparing the latest jabs to racism faced by former President Barack Obama, as fellow 2020 candidates rallied to her defense.

During Thursday's Democratic presidential debate, Donald Trump Jr. retweeted to his millions of followers a Harris critic who took issue with her identity.
"Kamala Harris is *not* an American Black. She is half Indian and half Jamaican," the critic, who identified as African American, wrote. "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."

Is she Black like she says?  

 

Me thinks she should have stated she is a person of color. 

 

 


Me thinks you are a Trump backer. Lets see who you support. Rapped 17 women including his own wife. His charity was put out of business for fraud., He lies about everything. He has mental problems per over 100 Mental health Experts. He has defrauded every Bank in the USA and none will lend to him except ones whose owner is trying to buy a govt job. He is an unindited Co Conspirator in S.D. of NY. (he would be a cell mate of Michael Cohen if he were not President.) Had to pay 24 million to students of Trump U for fraud. Ran a Mob type business. Cheated suppliers out of money for years which caused one to take his own life. Tried to cheat the City of NY out of 3 million $ in a hotel project. Evaded immigration laws in his business. Ran a program where Russian women could come to the US stay at one of his hotels till after birth so child could be an American Citizen. Now you want to worry about Kamala Harris. She would be 1,000 % better than Trump as President. She is honest.

Then again, would we be surprised!

I find it pretty stupid of Donald Jr to be claiming that Harris is not the right kind of black.
