On Tuesday, presumptive Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden announced Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate, which sparked a debate over her ethnicity once again.
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) described her as “Black” and “Asian American,” but they also called her “African American.” Which she is not.
.@KamalaHarris is the third woman in American history to hold the vice presidential nomination on a major party ticket. And she’s the first Black and Asian American woman to be nominated. It’s time to make even more history this November.

Harris' father is Jamaican and her mother is an Indian American. While she was born in California and raised in Berkley, she moved to Canada when she was twelve. However, she often mention how she is "from Oakland," to falsely portray that she is African American.
This has sparked many people to question her ethnicity, including CNN host Don Lemon.
In February of 2019, he was debating with CNN political analyst and White House reporter for American Urban Radio Networks April Ryan on whether Harris was "African American" or not.
He said, "The people who are saying, ‘Is she Black enough?’ That’s bull, that’s B.S. But to want a distinction to say, ‘Is she African American? Or is she Black or is she — whatever. What’s — there is nothing wrong with that. There is a difference between African American and being Black."
Lemon added, “Latino people are people of color, but they’re not Black. They’re Brown people. OK?”
Ryan declared, “She is a Black woman.”
"I agree with that. But is she African-American?” He countered, “There is a difference. There is nothing wrong with that. No one is trying to take anything away from her… . All she had to do was say, ‘I am Black but I’m not African American.”
“Many Africans landed in Jamaica and all these other places," Ryan argued.
Lemon replied, “Jamaica is not America. Jamaica did not come out of Jim Crow. I’m just saying.”

Ever since the coronavirus task force was formed with Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx on board, it has honestly been a mess.
I really shouldn't fault Dr. Birx too much as the main culprit is Dr. Fauci. He has been fear-mongering ever since the beginning and he's only been aided by the Democrats and the mainstream media.

'Racist' Clothing Store Slammed for Waiving Fees for Non-White Customers
A Georgia clothing store lost customers and reputation after being slammed as "racist" regarding their new policy, which was shared on Facebook. The policy: they were waiving a fee for non-white customers.
How they thought it would be a good idea to charge, or not charge, people based solely on the color of their skin is beyond me.
