Kamala Harris

Kamala Harris was elected to the U.S. Senate on Tuesday, Nov. 8.

Harris, whose mother is from India and father is Jamaican, becomes the 2nd woman of color to serve in the U.S. Senate.

While 20 black women currently serve in the House of Representatives, there hasn’t been a black female or woman of color in the senate since Carol Moseley Braun served in 1993 to 1999.

Harris started her career as a prosecutor. In 2003, she was elected District Attorney of San Francisco, and in 2011, she became the first woman of color elected as California Attorney General.

Janet Reno, who passed away on Monday at age 78, was the first female U.S. Attorney General.

Harris’ good looks and no-nonsense dedication to the law earned her many fans from all walks of life.

President Obama lost cool points with feminists when he said Harris was “by far the best-looking Attorney General in the country”.

He later apologized.

Politics was always in Harris’ blood. The political science major sat on the debate team at Howard University.

“My first run for office was at Howard University, where I was elected freshman class representative of the liberal arts student council. Running a campaign at Howard was tough!” recalls Harris, who is a member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority.

After graduating from Howard, Harris went on to earn her juris doctorate at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law.

The Los Angeles Daily Journal named Harris one of the top 100 best lawyers in California.

In 2014 Harris married California attorney Douglas Emhoff, who is Caucasian.

She has no children.

Thanks to loyal reader Django the god for the tip.

    You can’t be anything but shady to well-rounded educated Black women.

  • Buttercup

    Such an inspiration.

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    She has been working towards this for years. Good for her.

  • Yoni

    Congratulations to her!

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    My soror

  • Buttercup

    She identifies as black and Indian-American. (She went to Howard and pledged AKA, so they can’t have her.)

  • That’s Interesting

    Congrats! She looks black on black.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    They running around here claiming the mess out of her. I’ve seen Asian American and Indian American a lot in past few days. I know she went to Howard. So did Rachael. I personally am not here for Kamala. She slept her way to the top and then married white. Congrats to her tho.

    Bottom bish per Brenden.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Used black men for her own gain. Black men do it (get money and marry Becky. But with Lakesha when chips are down) and get their asses dragged. Kamala does it and I’m supposed to feel warm snd fuzzy about it. Nope

  • Incog-knee-gress

    What I say wrong? ? Fair is fair

  • RIFcantReadBlocked

    I voted for her! Woot!

    New doofus.

  • Buttercup

    I can’t argue with you there. You do have a point.

    Grabs a chair so you can tell me more. ???

  • Irony

    I see you!?

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    Yep..fugg crditials (you see that means fuggin nothing in America) she is there cuz her pussy is grabable worthy according to Trump standards of good looks.. rollseyse until they bleed at Sandra…

  • kekeb

    Cool! Congrats!!

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    Nothing. We call out everyone else.

  • That’s Interesting

    But she didn’t find a husband til 50…and looks close to 60…

  • Incog-knee-gress

    That is the story. She had been with influential brown men publicly, and then developed political aspirations and popped up with a rich white husband. When black men do it we are outraged. Kamala does it and its congrats Kamala! More power to the people. What damn people? The brown ones? Im just not here for BS.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Even more reason for the side eye. Why you need the white husband Kamala? So very late in life? Oh thats right. Right around the time your Senate run talks started. Its no coincidence to ME. Not sure what it is to anyone else.

  • TransHuman

    I have 5 Latinos on my team why all called out. Hmmmmmm

  • bemetoo

    So is she a lesbihonest

  • dazja

    Oh wow Sandra Rose is applauding a Black woman, that’s shocking.

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    At home trying to figure out the next move now that this racist is gonna be president. I understand.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Not liked by many. I didnt know until this morning.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Each and EVERY PERSON.

  • TransHuman

    I got. 2 text arround 4 am and the others about 6.

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    Barley. She is saying “woman of color” not black woman. And then made sure to point out her parents nationality. Shade. Smh. It’s a shame when your black as hell and hate your own people.

  • Buttercup

    Lil Butter previously discussed with me an article that presented facts about each candidate’s platform. He was concerned that his friends would have to go back to Mexico. This morning he asked if his friends would be at school today since Trump won the election. Murica.

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    Exactly. Trump and his hate for other has some shook. I was too. Won’t lie. But I had to remember that God is always in control. He is on time and will always bless his people. (soul glow and khaki had to remind me #blessings)

  • TransHuman

    One young lady . Just started about 3 weeks ago calli and calling out but Im really gonna overlook her and let it be.

  • Ant Hill

    She fuqqed her way up like most of you do.

  • That’s Interesting

    Makes sense. I don’t know anything about her. I wonder if she’ll distance herself from the Black community, if she was ever even a supporter. She looks ? percent Black to me tho.

  • TransHuman

    U think Sandra hates blacks? First tine hearing that about her ain’t she black

  • Incog-knee-gress

    She is a supporter. She did a lot for civil rights.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/Judge-rips-Harris-office-for-hiding-problems-3263797.php
    Some brung their asses on her daily tambout all of the blacks Hillary locked up and Kamala was accused of violating the rights of a huge population of folks who were accused of committing crimes. Her office withheld pertinet information about known corrupt police crime lab technicians, that in turn impacted hundreds of cases. But its time to congratulate her today? Ummm okay.

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    First time hearing that? You new? If so welcome and Bren will get you a welcome packet. If not then I don’t know how you missed it. I’m sure these other Roses will tell you it’s true. She shades the entire hell out of black people. And yeah she’s black. However I feel like we are being catfished

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    Come on with the facts Dubb! #FactsMaster

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Thank you for the info. Really knew her name only in passing.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Poor baby.

  • Buttercup

    Thanks Dub, I’m not sure how I missed this.

  • Buttercup

    Rescinded. The injuns can have her.

  • Scromes1212

    This is big! Much success to this sister

  • nucynu25

    You leading today huh lol

  • Incog-knee-gress

    I told Django this morning when he was hollering Kamala will probably end up being the first female President. Well why the hell should SHE be? She did the SAME shat folks been running around here hollering about HILLARY DAMN DID. I said Kamala has A LOT of shyt with her.

  • nucynu25

    Never heard of her before this.

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    Right. If she good enough to be so was Hillary. Man please.

  • Irony

    KWahaha that’s what keeps tu on my favorita poster! #Receipts

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    So basically, she intentionally played her part in having innocent brothers locked up? F her. Bet money she got paid for that mess too.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Obama got his ass ripped to shreds when he endorsed her running for Senate. He said something about her looks. Which has given her mannie mannie passes.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    She has been also accused of that too. Pay for play. Indeed.

  • Irony

    With a face like that…Open post?

  • Dreadboi

    But it was Obama that made a issue about her looks first right??

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..
  • NegroHummus

    welp, we lost the house, senate, and the white house…oy vey

  • SummerBaby

  • Buttercup

    Cockblocker called me first thing this morning and told me not to do anything extra for the next week or so. I don’t think they will riot in the A, but I’ll take heed to be on the safe side.

  • NegroHummus

    see its the dems fault tryna force another “first” in to the white house. shoulda let folk have a lil breather after President Obama; i.e Bernie. then push her into the white house. she was too selfish to see that, and it cost the dems the election.
