Cancel Harris and Her Slave-Trading Legacy!

If you ain’t canceling Kamala, you ain’t woke.

There are far more legitimate questions about the legal standing of Kamala Harris’s bid to be president — which she most assuredly would be prior to the end of a Joe Biden first term — than that raised about Barack Obama. Of course, Democrats studiously avoid questions about so-called “birthright citizenship” just as they do the assertion that they abide by our Constitution and Rule of Law. I mean, it’s not like they took an oath “to support and defend” it!

But what will Kamala’s constituents think when they find out she is the direct descendent and beneficiary of her family’s slave holders and traders? Will that pass the sniff test or will they cancel Harris?

Some of her black constituents are already objecting to Harris’s more egregious offenses when she was attorney general of California. Loyola law professor Lara Bazelon declared in The New York Times: “Harris fought tooth and nail to uphold wrongful convictions that had been secured through official misconduct that included evidence tampering, false testimony and the suppression of crucial information by prosecutors.” Furthermore, after a federal judge ordered the release of nonviolent offenders for parole in California, then-AG Harris argued that her state prisons would lose “an important labor pool.” (Talk about keeping black folks on the Demo plantation…) Harris never apologized for that assertion, and she hopes Biden’s constituents will forget about her record as a “Draconian Prosecutor.”

Regarding her record of locking up pot smokers, recall that when asked if she had smoked marijuana, Harris responded, “Half my family’s from Jamaica — are you kidding me?” That “stereotype” drew a strong rebuke from her father, Donald Harris, who responded: “My dear departed grandmothers, 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 … 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.”

But there is more to Kamala’s Jamaican family history than pot-smoking stereotypes, and she has been doing a good job dissociating herself from that travesty. In fact, she has not been questioned about it, of course.

In 2018, her father published an essay on her family lineage, “Reflections of a Jamaican Father,” in which he recounts both his childhood in Jamaica and visits back to Jamaica with his own children. In that essay, Donald Harris notes they are descendants of a “slave owner” by the name of Hamilton Brown, an Irishman who enslaved many black people in Jamaica on his sugar plantations.

According to professor Harris, an emeritus professor at Stanford, “My roots go back, within my lifetime, to my paternal grandmother Miss Chrishy (nee Christiana Brown, descendant of Hamilton Brown who is on record as plantation and slave owner and founder of Brown’s Town).” According to the Centre for the Study of the Legacies of British Slave-ownership at University College London, Hamilton Brown was an attorney and, indeed, a “resident slave-owner in Jamaica.”

Harris has avoided questions about her slave-trading family history — predictably because those questions have not been asked. In fact, in a whitewash puff piece by The Washington Post two weeks ago about an ancestor who fought slavery in Jamaica, there is no mention of Donald Harris or their ancestral link to slave trader Hamilton Brown.

If that heritage comes to light, then Biden could declare, in one of his more lucid moments, “If you don’t cancel Kamala, you ain’t woke!”
