Exactly. Why is SHE making it the cornerstone of her campaign? I could care less about those factors. I disagree with her policy proposals. I would disagree with them regardless of her gender or skin color. But those are the attributes that she is promoting and you seem to be falling for it.

Where did you hear that at? She is not doing that. She is stressing equality, decency, justice and democracy in her campaign, and will use the slogan “For the people.”

You need to learn the difference between using a Slogan and then going onto talk shows to talk about her heritage. Slogans can say anything and are meant to attract those to stupid to look behind the curtains. Her actions speak volumes.

She chose the Breakfast Club radio show because it is hosted by black people and appeals to a black audience. You actually believe they didn't discuss her "blackness" beforehand? Please.

I think they don't understand who black people are,” Harris responded. “Because if you do, if you walked on Hampton’s campus, or Howard’s campus, or Morehouse or Spelman or Fisk, you would have a much better appreciation for the diaspora, for the diversity, for the beauty in the diversity of who we are as black people," she said, referring to historically black universities.
Harris refers to "who we are" as black people. She goes on to brag about how her tax plan will lift up 60% of black households. She also endorses Federal reparations for blacks. The claim that she doesn't emphasize her ethnicity is nonsense.

Harris is a graduate of Howard University a traditionally segregated institution. My, what a celebration of diversity.

Instead of blaming mom or grandma for questioning her choice of identity group, it is "they" who are at fault. And why not? To Democrats ethnicity and gender is everything. A sympathetic media openly disparages the chances of a white male to win the nomination and after Hillary they are not terribly receptive to a white female either. In the Democrat celebration of diversity Kamala Harris can't afford to have any questions about her identity group membership.

So, is Trump at fault for accepting and perpetuating his father’s lies about being Swedish and not German in order to sell more homes to Jewish customers?

Oh, so look at you the arbiter of national origin. You did realize that Swedish and German are lumped together as white in the Democrat identity politics game. There is no difference.

Ethnic identity for government documents is a selection made by the person filling out the form with a couple of exceptions. One is American Indian where there is a definition to qualify for preferences. Warren clearly lied to get a better job than her qualifications would have merited.

Trump’s father lied for decades and claimed to be Swedish in order to cover up the fact that he was German, and Trump repeated the lie numerous times. It doesn’t make any real difference what European country his ancestors were from, but it is just absurdly hypocritical to criticize Harris or Warren for their claims to racial identity and to ignore the proven lies of Trump in this same area.
