Senator Kamala Harris really ticked her father off when she discussed her support for marijuana legalization, justifying her position by explaining that “Half my family’s from Jamaica.”
Donald Harris, Kamala’s father, is an economics professor at Stanford, and is Jamaican. He issued a scathing statement to Jamaica Global Online, distancing himself from his daughter’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,” wrote Harris. “Speaking for myself and my immediate Jamaican family, we wish to categorically dissociate ourselves from this travesty.”
Well done, Donald. So, can we count on your support for the Trump re-election campaign in 2020? You don’t really want to associate yourself with a pothead, do you?
