The Senator from California who is in the race for the 2020 US Presidential elections, Kamala Harris, seems to be getting lots of criticisms in recent times, the latest from her own father. Harris was on the Breakfast Club radio show last week and seemingly, some of her comments angered her father.
Professor Donald Harris, the father to the embattled Senator, took exception to his daughter’s comment about relating smoking of marijuana to her Jamaican heritage. He said he was sure his parents and grandparents would turn in the graves in disappointment at his daughter for her stereotype comments. He went ahead to dissociate himself and his family from the comments made.
Senator Harris was asked if she smoked marijuana on the Breakfast Club radio show. Her response was quite sarcastic as she said half of her family was from Jamaica so what was expected of her. She affirmed that she didn’t just smoke it, she inhaled it as well. Her comments didn’t just annoy her father, they caused a bit of an uproar back home in Jamaica.
Professor Harris said he had raised his daughters well and expected more from the Senator.
