Kamala Harris just made a fool of herself trying to appeal to the black community
Joe Biden’s decision to pick Kamala Harris as his Vice Presidential nominee is clear pandering.
He believes that she will be able to help him bring out the black vote.
But that isn’t going well after Harris made a fool of herself trying to appeal to the black community.
Through his criminal justice reform initiatives, President Donald Trump has made remarkable ground when it comes to his support in the black community.
Polling continues to show that he is gaining major ground among black voters, as Joe Biden continues to lose the historically Democrat voting block at an alarming rate.
After making comments like telling black voters that they “ain’t black” if they vote for Trump, it is no wonder Biden is having trouble.
Kamala Harris is trying to help Biden in that much-needed community for Democrats.
But her attempts continue to come off as nothing more than mealy-mouthed pandering.
Perhaps the best example of this came in an interview with CNN commentator Angela Rye.
The topic of rap music came up for some reason and Harris was asked about who her favorite rapper is.
In response, Harris claimed that deceased rapper Tupac Shakur is the “best rapper alive.”
“He’s not alive,” reacted Rye. “Listen, west coast girls think Tupac lives on, I’m with you. I’m with you.”
“I keep doing that,” said Harris. “Um, who would I say?”
“I mean, there’s so many,” continued Harris, appearing to attempt to think of a rapper to name. “I mean, you know, I — there are some that I, I, I would not mention right now, because they should stay in their lane, but, um, others, I . . . go on. Keep moving.”
Shakur was shot and killed in 1996 in a drive-by shooting.
His shooting has still remained unsolved to this day.
There have been many conspiracy theories that Shakur is still alive today, but it is unlikely that Harris was channeling those tinfoil-hat theories in her response.
Biden seems to believe that Harris being black will be enough for her to bring in the black vote for her.
But she has a lot of baggage that causes many in the black community to mistrust her.
She also has a record of being a tough prosecutor who was known to hand down tough sentences on drug offenders.
