But Kamala Harris seems to be ahead of the curve this election season:
Professor Donald Harris Kamala Harris’ Jamaican father, has vigorously dissociated himself from statements made on the New York Breakfast Club radio show earlier this week attributing her support for smoking marijuana to her Jamaican heritage. Professor Harris has issued a statement to jamaicaglobalonline.com in which he declares:
“My dear departed grandmothers(whose extraordinary legacy I described in a recent essay on this website), as well as my deceased parents , must be turning in their grave right now to see their family’s name, reputation and proud Jamaican identity being connected, in any way, jokingly or not with the fraudulent stereotype of a pot-smoking joy seeker and in the pursuit of identity politics. Speaking for myself and my immediate Jamaican family, we wish to categorically dissociate ourselves from this travesty.”
Even if you believe that Kamala Harris has experienced a fundamental change in her views on the proverbial “Road to Damascus”, and I don’t, one has to wonder just how effective she will be as a candidate when she seems intent on making her opponents’ opposition research as easy as possible.
What a clusterF%$#.
