Chicago: Racism also seems to be an issue in the US presidential election. And its first victim may become Kamala Harris, a contender for the post of Vice President of Indian origin. Republican leaders have been continuously targeting Kamala Harris since the Democratic Party announced the appointment of a vice-presidential candidate in the US presidential election. The Republican Party leader and current Vice President Mike Pence last week deliberately mispronounced his name. Democratic leaders said that mispronouncing the name is not only indecent but also shows racist thinking.
Donald Trump also misspelt Kamala Harris’s name
After this, President Donald Trump, president of the Republican National Committee, also incorrectly pronounced Kamala Harris’s name at a rally on Thursday. Harris supporters say Trump and his colleagues want to show Kamala as the migrant’s daughter. They want to show that they are outsiders for the top post of politics and they have no affiliation from here. Fatima Goss Graves, chairwoman of the National Women’s Law Center Action Fund, said it was an attempt to humiliate her.
Democratic leaders hit back at Republican Party
The Republican Party was criticized for incorrectly pronouncing Kamala Harris’s name at the Democratic National Conference held in Chicago. Democratic leaders said that mispronouncing the name is not only indecent but also shows racist thinking. Artist Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Andrew Yang, who are competing for the presidential candidacy, have misnamed her name, mocking the current Vice President Mike Pence. Yang said that his name is Micah Pints or Paints or Ponce. Louis said that strange foreign name. The American name is not known.
