Kamala Harris must be Rejected as a Black Leader
Kamala Harris is rejected as a Black leader not because of her Asian/Jamaican ancestry. Harris is of South Indian descent. Dravidians live in South India. Dravidian languages are related to African languages, and Tamil, a South Indian language is still spoken in Cameroon. Many Dravidians are proud of their Black Heritage. But, Harris has never identified herself as a Black person, unless it benefited her political aspirations.
She should be rejected because of her white identity and the injustices she imposed on Foundational Black Americans (FBA) as a prosecutor. What qualifies someone for support as a Black leaders is their identification as a Black/African man or woman and desire to see that Foundational Black Americans with freedom, justice and prosperity.
Given this criterion no one would claim Supreme Court Justice Clarice Thomas a Black leader, eventhough he is physiological a member of the Black/ race. Granted, he has strong negro features but , his vote on Supreme Court issues that would benefit FBAs, are votes against FBA issues , because he identifies as a Caucasian/white supremacist ideals.
Famous Black/Africans of Caribbean descent on the otherhand identified as Black/African
▪️ Malcolm X, made it clear that FBA should fight for freedom and respect and were entitled to respect
▪️Shirley Chisholm was a strong sister who never denied her blackness and was a spokeswomen for justice.
▪️Marcus Garvey called for economic prosperity s for FBA and unity for all people of African descent
▪️Stokely Carmichael/Kwame Ture, framed Our struggle for independence and coined the phrase “Black Power”, which was the clarion call for FBAs who wanted a Revolution that would give us viable economically developed FBA communities; a place where FBA could have jobs, homes and overall prosperity.
▪️Sidney Poitier was a Rider. He never failed to support the Civil Rights Movement, He was an outspoken advocate for the freedom of FBA .
Kamala’s record on the otherhand, is one of abuse. She jailed hundreds of Moms, and thousands of FBA men. She supported keeping imprisoned men in California fighting fires for pennies, and referred to them as “stock”, instead human beings. She had a chance to bring progressive changes to the criminal justice system when she was State’s Attorney General in California and did nothing. Does anyone believe she will be progressive as Vice President? I think not, she will continue prosecuting FBA and supporting White Supremacy.
