    Kamala Harris's Ancestors Also Owned Slaves

    Quote from link:
    Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) is the descendant of an Irishman who owned a slave plantation in Jamaica, according to her father's lengthy ancestral summary of his side of the family.​

    Wonder how they will dance around that issue?

    It fits in well with Biden's adoration for the former Klansman recruiter.

    I would say that her family has risen above that family history and it doesn't seem to indicate how she would behave as VP.

    "Donald Harris, a Stanford University economics professor, revealed in 2018 that his grandmother was a descendant of Hamilton Brown, the namesake of Brown's Town in northern Jamaica."

    So, Kamala Harris's great great grandmother was raped by an Irishman in 1817. Shame on him!

    What's to dance around? Slave owners raped their slaves all the time.

    For those who are interested, Snopes took a stab at verifying some of the Harris family lineage:
    Did U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris' Ancestor Own Slaves in Jamaica?

    I've already heard from one black American voter who is unhappy at the choice, saying that Harris isn't black.

    I believe his point was not so much about her mixed ancestry as about those relatives of Sen. Harris not having had any part at all in the experience of blacks in the United States.

    When does sex inside marriage constitute rape?

    The same is, likely, true for most Americans.

    IOW ... it isn't an issue ...

    If this came out about Trump every excuse in this thread would be instantly reversed. Period.

    Is this all we can expect from the right now? Last week I would have thought you guys had this election in the bag. Today I’m a bit more hopeful.

    You were right to think we have this election in the bag. I'm more confident then ever that we do.
