Kamala Harris is on blast from her own father due to her stereotyping comments about all Jamaicans smoking pot. Kamala Harris father Donald Harris was born in Jamaica and is absolutely disappointed in her statement.
The Daily Wire outlines the statement Kamala Harris said.
“Harris told [radio] co-host “Charlemagne tha God” that she “broke loose” and smoked marijuana in college. “And I did inhale!” she enthusiastically added.”
“”That’s not true,” the senator told Charlemagne when he said people think she’s against marijuana legalization. “Half my family is from Jamaica. Are you kidding me?” joked Harris.”
“”Have you ever smoked?” asked the co-host.”
“”I have,” she answered. “And I did inhale. I did inhale! It was a long time ago, but yes. I just broke loose.””
Donald Harris responded to his daughters statement in a not so happy tone.
“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’s 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.”
