Remember That One Time When CNN’s Don Lemon Asked If Kamala Harris Was ‘African-American?’ We Do…

(Tea Party PAC) – Former Vice President Joe Biden has chosen California Sen. Kamala Harris to be his vice presidential running mate Tuesday, which has fired up a public debate concerning her ethnicity.

Apparently, the Democratic National Committee has referred to her as “Black” and also “Asian-American.” But they’ve also referred to the senator as “African-American.”

However, there was one time, not long ago, when CNN host Don Lemon questioned whether or not Harris is African-American. Just imagine, if you will, what would happen to a person who was white and asked that question. Yikes. This would be totally devastating to that individual’s career.

Here’s more from Breitbart:

@KamalaHarris is the third woman in American history to hold the vice presidential nomination on a major party ticket. And she’s the first Black and Asian American woman to be nominated. It’s time to make even more history this November.

Harris was born in California to a Jamaican father and an Indian American mother. She was raised in Berkeley, California, and moved to Canada when she was twelve.

She has characterized herself as “from Oakland,” a city with a large African American population, since she was born in the Kaiser Hospital in Oakland. But she has also characterized herself as Asian American and South Asian American.

While many Democrats and Harris’s supporters lashed out at those questioning whether Harris was “African American,” CNN host Don Lemon posed the question himself last year.

In February 2019, Lemon was debating April Ryan, CNN political analyst and White House reporter for American Urban Radio Networks, on whether Harris was “African American.” Lemon said:

The people who are saying, ‘Is she Black enough?’ That’s bull, that’s B.S. But to want a distinction to say, ‘Is she African American? Or is she Black or is she — whatever. What’s — there is nothing wrong with that. There is a difference between African American and being Black.

Lemon went on: “Latino people are people of color, but they’re not Black. They’re Brown people. OK?”

Ryan protested: “She is a Black woman.”

Lemon responded, “I agree with that. But is she African-American?”

So there’s a problem with her being black but not African-American? Wait, is the left really becoming this tribal now? Really? This stuff is getting ridiculous. It seems the only thing liberals really care about are what kind of label to stick on someone. That label becomes your brand on the left, like the kind put on cattle. You aren’t allowed to stray from that brand either or else you are disowned.

Weird stuff.

He added, “There is a difference. There is nothing wrong with that. No one is trying to take anything away from her… All she had to do was say, I am Black but I’m not African American.”

Ryan then argued, “Many Africans landed in Jamaica and all these other places.”

Lemon responded, “Jamaica is not America. Jamaica did not come out of Jim Crow. I’m just saying.”

The left are completely obsessed with race and tribalism. It’s this obsession, fueled by Marxism, that has caused so much division in our country. Everyone has to be lumped into some sort of group, focusing on what makes us different from each other instead of what connects us all together.

Sad times.

  15. Her father is Jamaican her mother is Asian. That makes her American. Sad but true because she is a LWNJ commie which she should be stripped of her citizenship and put off American soil along with all the supporters. You support communism you are the enemy.

    • Kamala was born to two non-citizens, therefore she is not an anchor baby. One parent had to be a citizen but neither was. It will be interesting to see how the left and demorats justify this one.

  16. kamala harris is a pos-she has no integrity at all –
    she knew biden was a racist and worked along side
    racists-and she called him on it -and yet here she is
    working along side the racist-
    it is all about the power and money —
    she and biden will screw america and americans-
    typical democrats-criminals-criminalcrats –
    if they win–america and americans lose-

  18. I say she is an American. That is all that matters. Also she is more than qualified for the job. I am afraid we all are keeping the trouble going with our always talking about what someone’s skin is.

    • You mean when democrats are pigeonholing each and every one of us into our snug little group so they can divide us up, Guess what, we’re ONTO their schemes and will NOT be putting basement biden and”sleep to the top” harris into the Whitehouse, PERIOD!

  19. She’s not AFRICAN AMERICAN . . . She is a Left Wing COMMUNIST with NO honor WHATSOEVER, and a LIAR besides! DON’T vote for this ABOMINATION of a Democratic TICKET if you value your COUNTRY, STATE or TOWN. And Christians (ESPECIALLY Catholics): Pray against this one – HARD.One Enlightened And Observant Patriot. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  20. I won third place in the physics division at the junior high school science fair for my color study project back in 1958.

    I won’t get all sciency on you but my current test for skin shade is very simple. Take a piece of white paper, place your arm on it – what color are you? Those of us who are called “white” are apparently not. We’re more a “peach” shade. Now take a piece of black construction paper and do the same. I think you will find that so-called “black” people aren’t actually black.

    In this day of over-sensitivity, ridiculous prejudices, super-egoisticality, pomposity, foolishness and downright stupidity, a trip to Sherwin-Williams will allow you to identify your exact shade by paint sample comparison. Now, there should be no argument, right? Wrong! If you don’t have Sherwin-Williams, you might need to identify with Valspar, Behr, or another paint brand and they won’t have the same name. So, on goes the shade enigma.

    Skin tone is not a qualifying factor for Presidential eligibility. Apparently, the only requirement is that a human must be born in America or, if in another country at the time, a birth parent must be a natural American citizen.

    There was a time when education, intelligence, knowledge of government and law, communication skills, business, finance and a host social skills were necessary for not only Presidential but all other political positions. Popularity was a plus. Candidates couldn’t brag enough about why they should be elected instead of their opponent. But they did not sling mud as the golden rule applied. After the election, the party line dissipated and people worked to compromise. They respected their constituents’ opinions and did their best to represent them. Oh, yeah, congressmen kept their day jobs as their post was not full time. If we don’t vote correctly, we will lose our freedoms BUT, they can’t destroy our memories.

  21. Kamala will play to the crowd. It is great she came clean about not being African-American. When I ran against her in 2016 she never would come clean. She loved being hailed as African-American. Yet, to Jamaicans they find it offensive to be called African-American. She is okay with offending a smaller minority over a larger minority. In other words, she’d offend her own minority than the larger African-American minority because her minority produces an insignificant amount of votes. (It’s all in the math)

    What has not come out yet, but I am sure will, is the major issue I unsuccessfully got into the lime light in 2016, her egregious actions against California’s children as California’s Attorney General.

    In 2010, when running against Steve Cooley, she attacked him over negative comments he made about Jessica’s Law, as if she where a tremendous supporter of it.

    Then once she got the AG job, she refused to defend California’s children, by filing any action to the California State Supreme Court’s March 2, 2015 decision to deem Jessica’s Law un-Constitutional in California’s 58 counties.

    The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation refuses to produce Harris’s legal opinion on the matter, citing attorney-client privilege. Note that the CDCR is ran by Kamala’s far left social buds.

    Kamala’s flip flop on Jessica’s Law should be the primary focus on why she and Sleepy Joe are BAD for AMERICA in 2020, and for California in 2022.

  22. My skin color is not white, not black, not brown or red or yellow. My skin is the desired color and I must add that MY LIFE MATTERS.

  23. Oh come on, we are ALL persons of color. My self I am more beige then White. Why doers it matter what color a persons skin may be? Aren’t we all Americans worthy of the same protections, aspirations and needs?

  24. I don’t care if she’s African or Indian or brown ,she’s a democrat idiot no matter what color the enslave owner is.

  25. April RYAN DOESNT KNOW WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON. SHE. IS A HORRID REPORTER, SHE ASKS INSULTING QUESTIONS THAT HAVE NO VALUE AND NOW SHE INSISTS KAMELA IS BLACK. NO, APRIL, SHE IS INDIAN AND JAMACIAN. SHE ISNT AFRICAN-AMERICAN. SHOWS HOW DUMB YOU REALLY ARE. ALL YOU REPORTERS ASKING STUPID QUESTIONS SHOWS WHY CNN AND MSNBC AND OTHER STATIONS AND NEWS ORGANIZATIONS LIE ALL THE TIME. THEY DONT EVEN KNOW WHICH WAY IS UP!

  26. My last pay check was $8750 just ecom working 12 hours for every week. My neighbor have found the estimation of $15k for a long time and she works around 20 hours for seven days. I can not trust how direct it was once I tried it information..
