Kamala Harris Descended from a Slave Owner

Senator Kamala Harris' dad really doesn't want her to be President for some reason.

First he publicly shamed her for her comments about marijuana and being a Jamaican. Now he's calling her out for being the descendant of slave owners.

Donald Harris, the father of presidential hopeful Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), said his daughter is descended from Jamaican plantation slave owners.

Donald Harris is an economics professor at Stanford University and a proud Jamaican.

He recently penned an essay for Jamaica Global Online, titled "Reflections of a Jamaican Father," in which he revealed his family's history.

       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).

Sen. Harris actually supports paying reparations to American blacks who have been impacted by slavery and discrimination. Maybe she should start giving away her Congressional paycheck to poor black people? After all, she benefited from slavery.
