Who is Kamala Harris? A history in cartoons & memes!


Kamala Harris or “Heels-up Harris” as she is mockingly known in certain California circles has an interesting past. She claims to be African-American but is in fact the child of immigrants from Jamaica and India.

She got her start in politics after dating former San Francisco Mayor and State Assembly Speaker Willie Brown for a period of time between 1994 to 1995 when he was in his sixties and she was just entering her thirties. In his capacity as speaker, Brown appointed her to two political posts — first to the California Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board, and then to the Medical Assistance Commission.

She moved up the ranks. Kamala Harris spent her career as the district attorney of Alameda County, San Francisco, and as the Attorney General aka “The Top Cop” of California.

As someone from the Bay Area and living in Oakland, I am constantly reminded of her history of locking up Black people in the Bay Area. Her track record consists of terrorizing Black communities through the prison industrial complex and she has consistently shown herself to be an enemy to the masses of Black people…

…Whether it was declining to advocate for legalization of marijuana in California, in which Black people are arrested at the highest rateOr her failure to support body cameras for the police while simultaneously opposing legislation that would require her office to independently investigate police shootings. Kamala is not for the people. She even defended the 3 strikes law, in which Black people are incarcerated at a rate 12 times higher than whites. Kamala Harris has demonstrated through her actions that she does not value Black lives, but rather supports our death via the carceral state.

Remember when she dropped out of the Primary
because of her low level of support?

Ordered to reduce the population of California’s overcrowded prisons, lawyers from then-California Attorney General Kamala Harris’ office made the case that some non-violent offenders needed to stay incarcerated or else the prison system would lose a source of cheap labor.

Planned Parenthood and Harris wielded a politically motivated prosecution against the two citizen journalists who uncovered the gruesome money-making racket.

And is this a switcheroo waiting for a Kamala Presidency?
