DINESH D'SOUZA (GUEST): African-American in the American context generally means having a direct relationship to the experiences of slavery and segregation and Jim Crow so on. Very interestingly, Kamala Harris' father, Donald, a Stanford professor, wrote an article in a Jamaican magazine several years ago, claiming, in fact sort of boasting, that he was descended from the largest slave owner, slave owner in Jamaica, one of the largest slave owners in Jamaica, a fellow named Hamilton Brown.

The point I want to make and the reason this is interesting is because there's been this effort in the Democratic Party and on the left to eradicate all connections to the slave plantation. And the point I'm trying to make is that Kamala Harris seems to be descended less from the legacy of, let's say, Frederick Douglass, than she is from the legacy of the plantation itself.
