Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) was exposed by her own father who stated that her ancestors owned 'scores of slaves.' Harris herself is a direct descendant of an Irishman who actually owned a slave plantation located in Jamaica according to her fathers summary of the ancestry on his side of the family.
Her father's name is Donald Harris and he's a economics professor at Stanford University. He stated in 2018 that his own grandmother was a descendant of a Mr. Hamilton Brown, who is connected to the namesake of Brown's Town in north Jamaica according to a report on the Free Beacon.

Donald Harris wrote an article for Jamaica Global and stated, "My roots go back, within my lifetime, to my paternal grandmother Miss Chrishy (née Christiana Brown, descendant of Hamilton Brown who is on record as plantation and slave owner and founder of Brown’s Town) and to my maternal grandmother Miss Iris (née Iris Finegan, farmer and educator, from Aenon Town and Inverness, ancestry unknown to me). The Harris name comes from my paternal grandfather Joseph Alexander Harris, land-owner and agricultural ‘produce’ exporter (mostly pimento or all-spice), who died in 1939 one year after I was born and is buried in the church yard of the magnificent Anglican Church which Hamilton Brown built in Brown’s Town (and where, as a child, I learned the catechism, was baptized and confirmed, and served as an acolyte)."
Free Beacon did some research as well and stated that an "archive of Jamaican records indicate that at one point in 1817, Hamilton Brown owned scores of slaves. The majority were brought in from Africa, though he also owned many Creole slaves."
If Kamala Harris wants to talk about reparations, is she going to pay the families of the slaves her own family owned?
Then again, slavery ended 150 years ago and there's no longer any living slaves nor slave owners, so who exactly would the money go to?
Reparations isn't worth talking about because it's a hilarious concept to pay people of NOW who were not involved in horrible things 150 years ago.
Kamala Harris on the other hand, she may want to sit this one out and focus on things that actually matter and would change the country NOW - not focusing on things from 150 years ago where none of us were even involved.
