The origin of Kamala Harris, a United States Senator for California, caused a stir after her first Democratic presidential debate that did not leave Twitter bots indifferent. They have strenghtened conspiracy theories online drawing attention to Indian and Jamaican origin, a skin colour and citizenship.
“Kamala Harris is *not* an American Black. She is half Indian and half Jamaican. I’m so sick of people robbing American Blacks (like myself) of our history. It’s disgusting. Now using it for debate time at #DemDebate2? These are my people not her people. Freaking disgusting,” Ali Alexander, a Trump’s proponent, tweeted.
Although Donald Trump Jr. updated the tweet and then deleted, it was soon accurately copied by Josh Russell and spread away.
Such racist conspiracy theories are already known to the White House. Former President Barack Obama was subject to discrimination after which the White House issued long-form birth certificate in 2011 to prevent online attacks.
“This is the same thing they did to Barack, this is not new to us,” Harris said.
