My ancestry is predominantly Italian-German.


Well, at least you're 50% good.


Depends on who you ask. Most of my friends while growing up were Chinese and Laotian so I got a lot of Nazi jokes. Haha.

But I gotcha.

Democrats did it again !!!


They sure have.

They want a senile old white guy for prez that wants someone descended from slave owners as fit to run the country.

And even then Biden is just a door mat.

Being called black is an insult to Jamaicans.. Ask one...I know im from NY a reply to: carewemust



Must be like calling a Guatemalan "Mexican". We have some women that work here from different parts of South America and they'll get pissed if someone calls them a Mexican.


Idk about that. I did a few stints in various construction/excavation roles and worked with a lot of patojos and older chapins. They called anyone with darker complexion negra. And I'm not talking about African descent black people. Anyone is negra to them if they have dark skin.

Dark skin Indian? Negra.
Dark skin Guatamalan? Negra.
Dark skin Cambodian? Negra.
Dark skin anyone? Negra.


I've had a lot of a coworkers and acquaintances who were Jamaican identify as black. I don't know if being from New York is a metric for anything. People in New York can find a reason to get pissy about anything just to get pissy.

Kamala went to an all black college and she does have some african american blood in her as well, although possibly only 1/16th or 1/32nd. The blacks sure as hell ain't voting for Trump.


So....when you say "African-American blood", do you mean black? I really hope you don't think that just because you're black or black looking that it means "African-American".

Chances are she came from the same area that captured men, women, and children who were minding their own business, and sold them in the Transatlantic Slave Trade. Do you support this?

Isn't it racist to presume that minorities will vote for another minority just because the candidate is a minority?

My experience is anecdotal only. I've seen them damn near get in a fist fight over being called Mexican. This, of course, was before 2010 when the country totally went to shart.

In a normal society. But we haven't had one of those in a while. Democrats, as usual, shrug that kind of talk off.

To label Kamala as African American, is a slap in the face of REAL African Americans. Anyone whose has one or both parents born in a Caribbean nation can be referred to as African American, when they really aren't. It dilutes and insults Americans who immigrated here from Africa, and those whose heritage traces back to the African continent...with "slavery" as part of that heritage.

Well you missed the juicy part that her dad is a descendant of plantation-slave owners on oneside and land-owner/exporter on the other side.


My roots go back, within my lifetime, to my paternal grandmother Miss Chrishy (née Christiana Brown, descendant of Hamilton Brown who is on record as plantation and slave owner and founder of Brown’s Town) and to my maternal grandmother Miss Iris (née Iris Finegan, farmer and educator, from Aenon Town and Inverness, ancestry unknown to me). The Harris name comes from my paternal grandfather Joseph Alexander Harris, land-owner and agricultural ‘produce’ exporter (mostly pimento or all-spice), who died in 1939 one year after I was born and is buried in the church yard of the magnificent Anglican Church which Hamilton Brown built in Brown’s Town (and where, as a child, I learned the catechism, was baptized and confirmed, and served as an acolyte).


I think it is safe to say that her great Grandparents most likely wouldn't be so well off if they were black back then when being black in Jamaica wasn't good.

I just looked at what is purported to be a copy of Kamala's birth certificate.
Her mother is listed as Caucasian and her father is listed as Jamaican under color/race.
SOTN

So this would mean she is officially white/Jamaican.


Her mother is not Caucasian even 1/1024th lol, She is full Indian. Her dad on the other hand is mostly Caucasian.
