Why?

Because, she is so qualified, so strong & ABOVE ALL has zero baggage.

Lets see Trump trying to BULLY her. Ha. Ha. Ha.

She will put Trump in his place.

She is GOOD. I have no issue or quarrel that she is part Tamil. I have Tamil friends.

She is GOOD. She is impressive. I am so GLAD.

Thanks Joe. You are a PAL. SMILE.

Click to ENLARGE. What came up when I Googled “kamala harris tamil tigers”. Do your own search.


Kamala Harris is 50% Tamil. There is nothing wrong with that. I, personally, though I am, by birth, a Sri Lankan Sinhalese, have nothing against Tamils in general — though, I, like million others, were not fond of what the ‘Tamil Tigers‘ did in Sri Lanka. My current doctor, BY CHOICE, is Tamil and my prior cardiologist (who has since moved away from New Hampshire) was also Tamil. Growing up our neighbours, who we interacted daily, and were very much part of the family, were Tamil and one of our closest family friends (a gifted sculptor from Madras (now Chennai)) was Tamil.

Yes, 99.5% of Americans would never have heard of the ‘Tamil Tigers’ or care what or who they are. But, there are millions who do worry about the ‘Tamil Tigers’ — and there are probably a few thousand Sinhalese with American citizenship that will factor this in when they vote in 2020.

IF (and that is a HUGE, HUGE ‘IF’) Kamala Harris becomes president her attitude towards the Tamil Tigers will be pivotal.

If she is sympathetic to them, despite all of the International condemnations, it could change the balance of power in central Asia. India would be happy, BUT not China. Sri Lanka would be screwed.

I doubt whether this will ever come up in a debate.

But, somebody needs to ask her this question, on the record.

Don’t you think so?

I Had No Idea Presidential Hopeful Kamala Harris Was ‘Black’, But I Didn’t Know Obama Was ‘White’.

I had seen her on TV and just assumed she was ‘white’ with blush. Honestly. Never ever occurred to me that she was black! No, I had not taken much notice of her first name ‘Kamala’. Maybe if I had I might have given it some thought. I thought it was ‘Camala’ — and Spanish.

Here is the kicker. She has no ‘white’ in her. Indian Tamil mother and Jamaican father. Yes, one or more of her grandparents may have been ‘white’. Does not matter. It is just that I had not realized that she was anything other than lily white. Just goes to show you.

Tamil mother — from India. No, I am cool. I really STILL do have Tamil friends. Growing up one of my many surrogate mothers, our next door neighbor, was Tamil. My current doctor is Tamil. So, that is actually good.

Yes, I honestly did not know, until I became an ardent follower, that Obama was white. Always confused me when folks called him black. He was as much white as he was black.

Not so in the case of Kamala Harris. But, that is OK. I think she is smart and cool BUT I am not sure whether she is the next Obama. The next Obama for I, is Michelle.
