  • Any guesses as to how much reparations she is willing to pay for the people her family oppressed, or is it only white people who should pay?

    Kamala Harris’ father drops another big bombshell about her family history
    Forget marijuana rumors — this is big

    Donald Harris, the father of Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), revealed that his presidential hopeful daughter is descended from Jamaican plantation slave owners.

    What did he say?

    Donald Harris, an economics professor at Stanford University, is Jamaican. In an essay published on Jamaica Global Online, he revealed his family's history.

    An excerpt of the essay, which was titled, "Reflections of a Jamaican Father," stated:

    My roots go back, within my lifetime, to my paternal grandmother Miss Chrishy (née Christiana Brown, descendant of Hamilton Brown who is on record as plantation and slave owner and founder of Brown's Town) and to my maternal grandmother Miss Iris (née Iris Finegan, farmer and educator, from Aenon Town and Inverness, ancestry unknown to me). The Harris name comes from my paternal grandfather Joseph Alexander Harris, land-owner and agricultural 'produce' exporter (mostly pimento or all-spice), who died in 1939 one year after I was born and is buried in the church yard of the magnificent Anglican Church which Hamilton Brown built in Brown's Town (and where, as a child, I learned the catechism, was baptized and confirmed, and served as an acolyte).
    Interestingly enough, Sen. Harris favors paying reparations to American blacks who have been impacted by slavery and discrimination. She echoed those sentiments to the the New York Times.

    Anything else?

    This isn't the first time professor Harris has offered up less-than-flattering family information.

    Earlier in February, he decried his Kamala's remarks about legalizing marijuana, during which she painted her family and those from Jamaica as potheads.

    Kamala discussed marijuana legalization on the radio show, "The Breakfast Club." When asked if she supported marijuana legalization, she responded, "Half my family's from Jamaica. Are you kidding me?"

    She added that marijuana brings people joy, "and we need more joy in the world."

    Donald Harris issued a blistering statement to Jamaica Global Online, distancing himself and his family from Kamala's remarks.

    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 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.

  • Those reparations would be owed by the United Kingdom.

  • I don't think being descended from slave owners would necessarily have to change her view, but, in light of other comments, it's a sign she's been trying too hard to pander.

    Why do I have a feeling she would have her hand out none the less?

  • Sounds like Donald Harris doesnt want his racist slave owner grandparents disrespected as potheads.

    Ok Don, your ancestors where sober slave owners...

  • The Dems/mainstream love some mixed race/light skinned "Blacks" they can prop up.

    Kamala Harris is Indian mixed with "Jamacian". If you've seen her father you would know the deal. If you know about Jamaica you would knwo the deal. Combine that with half Indian DNA and she really isn't all African-American. She is half Indian, not half Black. They will sell you this obviously Indian looking woman as "Black".

    True. Harris has no chance at my vote. Most ADOS are descendants of slave owners because of all the women that were raped.

    No way for me to know, but it seems like the less white/high yellow the more sound moral compass.

    Do you believe more owners, rather than simple minded white plantation workers, raped slaves?

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/style/longterm/books/chap1/stolen.htm

    "...Proslavery critics often claimed that abolitionists used stories of sexual exploitation to politicize their cause; nevertheless, slave women often became pregnant through forced cohabitation or rape. In such cases, it was unrealistic for victims of sexual abuse to expect any consideration form the men if pregnancy resulted. Under different circumstances attentiveness form the fathers depended upon variables including whether the parents belonged to one owner or were partners in abroad marriages.(12)

    Prenatal care for enslaved women in the modern sense was not available, but there were publications which discussed pregnancy. For example, the 1834 Domestic Medicine of Poor Man's Medicine contains the chapter "cautions during Pregnancy" with remedies for such maladies as colic, heartburn, cramps, and Frequency of elimination. Enlightened slaveowners were likely to have bought and read such books, and they may have disseminated the information to bondwomen. Moreover, the women probably benefited from folk medicine and advice form older women and midwives in the slave community.(13)

    Pregnant women were often ignorant of their bodily functions and needs during gestation. They did not own their persons, nor did they have the resources to assure healthy pregnancies and safe deliveries. "Their work could interfere with the blood supply to the placenta and jeopardize the health of the fetus. Some slaveholders were aware of the relationship between heavy physical labor and low-birth weight babies, but they were not aware of the connection to high infant mortality rates."

    This.

  • Is Alex haley his pen name?

  • This story has a bunch of issues rolled into one. Not gonna get into the whole slavery/rape thing.

    At the end of the say, the Dems are always going to go with these light skinned candidates and prop them up as "Black", when they are either:

    - not really African-American at all, like Kamala Harris who is half Indian and half related to slave owners in Jamaica, with the emphasis on Jamaica to enforce to automatic dark skinned, Rasta type associations in your head.

    b. Are bi-racial and come from an affluent background without the typical from the hood/Whitey held me back narrative...see Cory "My Dad's an IBM Exec and I went to Stanford" Booker and Barry "White Mom-Absent African Dad- did not live the Black experience at all in Hawaii or at Harvard" Obama.

    Doesn;t matter the flaws either. Booker is a vegan who is unmarried and is rumored to be closeted.

    Kamala was Willie Brown;s side chick.

    They really want to sell you some Bay Area hustlin' politicians Indian side chick to you as a Black Commander in Chief. Think about that and how ludicrous it is.

    The Left is full of it. As they keep rolling out the "safe", bi-racial, light skinned "Black" candidates at you over and over remember what I said.

    She could pass for a full Indian woman if you had her dressed right.

    Put on another costume and he looks like a psuedo Angela Davis in her Howard University (super Black cred for going to a Black college) sweatshirt.

    They are selling her as a Black woman.

    She has a vaguely "mixed" look that they want....see Barack...Booker...that Bennetton, melting pot look.

    Compare selling her to America to, say a Maxine Waters type...a Stacey Abrams....

    She is the most attractive candidate among a squadron of stiffs....Warren, the snowwoman, Bolshevik Bernie, Beta O'Dork ..all stiffs.

    She is the chosen one and note how CNN handed her that Town Hall almost immediately after she declared.

    I don't agree that she is safe, due to her being Willie Brown's side chick and her extreme lack of charisma among many other flaws, but "they"..the Dem check writers and shot callers, do.
