Professor Donald Harris, Kamala Harris’ Jamaican father, has taken offense at statements made during his daughter’s radio interview last week. He called out her support for smoking marijuana by connecting it to her Jamaican heritage. Senator Harris was asked if she smoked marijuana and she replied, “Half my family’s from Jamaica. Are you kidding me?” The lawmaker said she not only smoked but added “I inhale.” He released his own statement. “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, in any way, jokingly or not 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.”
