Two Quick Takes On Kamala Harris

August 13, 2020 |

In the Washington Examiner, Hannah Cox writes that she would love to celebrate a woman of color being picked for a veep running mate, but...

“Kamala Harris’s career ascension was built with the bricks of injustice, misfortune, and the corruption of the prison industrial complex...In between advocating for harsher penalties (including some truly bonkers repercussions for truancy), privacy violations like familial DNA searches, and civil asset forfeiture, Harris even found time to block new DNA evidence from being tested for a potentially innocent death-row inmate, Kevin Cooper. It should not go without comment that California’s justice system is one of the biggest hot messes in the country, highlighting the fact that Harris’s policies were both punitive and unsuccessful at producing better public safety outcomes. They also greatly harmed communities of color.”

On the other hand, one of the liberal news sites hailed Harris as the “most progressive” Attorney General California ever had.

If you’re wondering how someone can be that “progressive” and yet turn her state into a “hot mess” of injustice with policies that punished innocent people, violated civil rights, reduced safety and “greatly harmed communities of color,” then you haven’t been paying much attention to what “progressivism” really means these days.

    Wonder how many black American's actually consider Kamala Harris black? Her Jamacian father is part black and doesn't support her politics. When I moved to Georgia, I was surprised when some blacks told me "you know Obama isn't one of us". (And the conversation wasn't about politics or race.). I am not black, but if I am offended by the Democrats' 'token blacks' being dark skinned and foreign raised individuals rather than genuine black Americas, seems like some non-conservation blacks are going to notice too. Don't think it is a coincidence that Obama and Harris have such a non black American background. The Democrats (ie. Soros) are sending a subtle message that will be noticed by some black Democrats. Then throw in the fact that both Obama and Harris enacted policies that hurt minorities. No wonder think 'they aren't one of us'.
