Kamala Harris is featured in a new video in which she talks about her family celebrating Kwanzaa since her childhood.
Call me crazy, but I have a hard time believing that this story is rooted in fact, but that’s just my feeling after watching the cringe worthy clip. What do you think?
According to Wikipedia, Kamala’s father, ‘Donald Jasper Harris (born August 23, 1938) is a Jamaican-American economist and professor emeritus at Stanford University, known for applying post-Keynesian ideas to development economics. He is the father of Kamala Harris, U.S. Senator from California; and Maya Harris, a lawyer and political commentator.’

Kamala Harris celebrates Kwanzaa over Zoom, reveals favorite principle
“It’s about not letting anyone write our future for us, but instead going out and writing it for ourselves,” Kamala Harris said.
In honor of the first day of Kwanzaa, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris shared a video to commemorate the holiday she attributed as one of her childhood memories.
In the video, she shared that her family plans on celebrating over Zoom due to the coronavirus pandemic as the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests limiting large gatherings and traveling during the holiday season.
“You know, my sister and I, we grew up celebrating Kwanzaa. Every year, our family and our extended family, we would gather around across multiple generations and we’d tell stories and light the candles,” Harris said.
Our Kwanzaa celebrations are one of my favorite childhood memories. The whole family would gather around across multiple generations and we’d tell stories and light the candles.
Whether you’re celebrating this year with those you live with or over Zoom, happy Kwanzaa! pic.twitter.com/21bzGHZpYe

I’m sorry, in all honestly I think it is a good thing, in principle, to see more women and minorities involved in governing the nation. That being said, the litmus test should remain the same, regardless of plumbing or skin tone. Reverence for the Constitution and America’s founding principles should be what is most important, not anything else.
Kamala, in my view, is the least authentic person ‘serving’ in the United States government. She was not able to even garner a few points of support during the primary and it is my opinion that the reason for this is that she comes off as a poorly manufactured faux persona.
Don’t believe me? Just as Biggie and Tupac.
