Vice President Kamala Harris had an interview with the New York Times which went sour when the reporter asked her about President Biden's decision to pick her to be his running mate. The reporter, Astead Herndon, wanted to know if the narrative of Biden needing to choose a black woman was true and should it matter.
Harris didn't understand the question at first and asked for clarification. Herndon repeated the question and Harris was able to give a response. She said, "He chose a Black woman, that woman is me, so I don’t know that anything lingers about what he should choose. He has chosen, he asked me to join him on the ticket."
The conversation then shifted to the concerns Democratic voters have about Biden's advancing age and the possibility that Harris may be running for president someday. Senator Laphonza Butler found these questions to be disrespectful. She said, "It’s disrespectful. And the thing that makes it more disrespectful is that we’re talking about a historic VP who has been a high-quality partner and asset to the country at a time when everything is at stake. Right now is the time to respect what she’s done and what she brings."
The questioning of Kamala Harris' race has been met with criticism from fellow Democratic lawmakers. They feel that her immense contributions to the country should be acknowledged and respected rather than questions about her race. It is evident that Vice President Harris is an asset to the Biden administration and should be appreciated for her talent and hard work.
