Why is she labeled African-American?African-American is the label you hear now. Is it more than Marketing?
- He mother is from India and is identified as Caucasion on Kamala's birth certificate.
- Her father is from Jamaica (which, at the time, was a British colony) and is identified as Jamaican on her birth certificate.
- She has explained that she is part Irish and part Indian.
Who is Kamala Harris?This has been one of the most useful articles I have seen about Kamala Harris so far. The right side press tend to just trash her and the left side press just tell us she's great. The left side press tends to have the least information – just puff pieces.
This article actually tells us something about her including a bit more about her ancestry. It even suggests why she calls herself (or at least the left side press tries to tell you she calls herself) African-American. It says she grew up as an Indian woman with African-American pride. While that doesn't make her African-American it explains how the label apparently evolved.
The article in in Spanish. You can find it at Quién es Kamala Harris, la compañera de fórmula de Joe Biden, y que abogó por Guatemala en 2019 – Prensa Libre
Kamala's Jamaican HeritageThis is an article written by her father. Lots of details.
What does Tucker Carlson think of Harris?
“Harris may be the single most transactional human being in America,” Carlson said on his show. “There are time-share salesmen you would trust more than Kamala Harris. You could find payday lenders who are more sincere."
Is Kamala Harris Eligable to be VP?I saw this issue raised before but didn't understand the issue. There is no debate that she was born in the U.S. But, now I get it.
It appears that when Kamala was born her parents were not permanent residents of the U.S. It is likely they were both in the U.S. on student visas - her mother from India and her father from Jamaica.
Here is where it gets complicated. First, The 12th Amendment provides that “no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.” And Article II of the Constitution specifies that “[n]o person except a natural born citizen…shall be eligible to the office of President.”
The language of Article II is that one must be a natural-born citizen. The original Constitution did not define citizenship, but the 14th Amendment does—and it provides that “all persons born…in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens.” Those who claim that birth alone is sufficient overlook the second phrase. The person must also be “subject to the jurisdiction” of the United States, and that meant subject to the complete jurisdiction, not merely a partialjurisdiction such as that which applies to anyone temporarily sojourning in the United States (whether lawfully or unlawfully)…
OK, there it is. It does make sense.
How do you say her name?it's KA-ma-la. Rhymes with Pamala.
Democratic strategist and former Hillary Clinton adviser Richard Goodstein says "Her name is pronounced ‘comma’ — like the punctuation mark — ‘la.’ Seriously, I’ve heard every sort of bastardization of that. That’s how it is. ‘Comma-la'".
From Kamala Flowers (no relation to Jennifer), "Kamala means lotus (sanskrit language). Lotus flower symbolises purity and divind creation. It grows in mud but scientists discovered that lotus flower is absolutely resistant to dirt and this inspired them to create completely clean surfaces in technology."
