West Point is just half an hour north up the highway from Brooksville Mississippi where Attorney Antonio Moore’s mother comes from. It’s important for everyone to listen to his almost 13 minute video about Kamala Harris: http://youtu.be/5JJHK4PQhBk
Brooksville Mississippi (pop. 1182) is still a world apart from the elite upper upper class anglophone Westmount suburb of Montreal – home to the Bronfman and Molson families – where Kamala Harris grew up with her Asian Indian mother. Her mother worked as a researcher at Montreal’s Jewish Hospital.
Mr. Moore explains that while it’s fine for Kamala Harris to run for President, and be judged on her merits, that it’s wrong for her to try to appropriate the identity of Black American descendants of slaves. Her mother is Asian-Indian. Whether or not her father’s ancestors were slaves is unclear, and Jamaica isn’t the United States. Her father, and mother, were both born British subjects (as was Trump’s mother). Her father is Professor Emeritus of Economics at Stanford. Furthermore, she wasn’t even raised in the United States, but in an affluent mostly white Montreal suburb.
He also raises concerns about whether she would have America’s best interests at heart, considering that she was raised in Canada and born to immigrant student parents. The mostly white Westmount Montreal suburb in which Kamala was raised remains the second most affluent in Canada. While he doesn’t mention it, Kamala’s maternal grandfather was a diplomat in an India which was allied with the Soviet Union. And, her mother’s family name is the same as a prominent communist leader. Is this why she didn’t stay in California and moved to Canada? Journalists need to inquire further into her background.
Atty. Moore isn’t the only one talking about this now on youtube. Hopefully people will keep speaking up. Link to: “Kamala Harris is not the right presidential choice for Black America 2020“: http://youtu.be/5JJHK4PQhBk
One thing which everyone seems to overlook is that new immigrants and their descendants, like Kamala Harris, benefit from affirmative action policies and money meant for Black American descendants of slaves, and Native Americans. If this were stopped, then the situation of Black American descendants of slaves would improve almost instantly. The flow of unneeded economic immigrants from Asia would slow down, and possibly stop, as well. They can stay home and build Asia, instead of taking jobs from Americans.
Not only is Kamala Harris trying to appropriate Black American identity to benefit her candidacy, but she has almost certainly benefitted from policies meant to uplift the Black American community. Kamala Harris isn’t the first Tamil-Indian to pretend to be Black to get ahead in America. The concern has been raised that she may have taken a scholarship away from a Black American at Howard University. This warrants investigation.
No immigrants who came to the United States freely and willingly, nor their offspring, should benefit from Affirmative Action and related policies, which were designed for Black Americans who are descendants of slaves. There may be some Asian Americans and Latin Americans whose ancestors immigrated over a hundred years ago who might deserve some special policies, as may women. This can be subject to debate. However, no one who immigrated in the last 100 years, or so, should get Affirmative Action, minority set-asides or minority business funding. This must stop.
Despite being over 1/3rd of the world population, people from India and China can come to the US as permanent immigrants under the new 1965 immigration law, and on H1B (temporary dual intent which easily turns into a green card and citizenship), and other visas, and unfairly benefit from the Affirmative Action policies (always believed to be) designed to help create a level playing field for African Americans who were persecuted for hundreds of years with slavery and Jim Crow. Asia is the most populous region, with its 4.3 billion inhabitants accounting for 60% of the world population. The world’s two most populated countries alone, China and India, together constitute about 37% of the world’s population. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_population They are not minorities. They are majorities.
While Minority Business Enterprise funding apparently requires citizenship, new immigrants are quickly turning their temporary status to permanent status and citizenship. Meanwhile, it is almost certain that those working on H1Bs and Greencard holders get counted as minority workers for affirmative action/diversity head count.
“A Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) is an American term which is defined as a business which is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled on a daily basis by one or more (in combination) American citizens of the following ethnic minority and/or gender (e.g. woman-owned) and/or military veteran classifications:
1. African American
2. Asian American (includes West Asian Americans (India, etc.) and East Asian Americans (Japan, Korea, etc.))
3. Hispanic American – Persons with origins from Latin America, South America, Portugal and Spain.(SBA.gov)
4. Native American including Aleuts
5. Service-Disabled Veteran Owned aka SDVBE, aka DVBE* which became a federally certified classification in 1999, subsequent to the passage legislation by the United States Congress through the enactment of The Veterans Entrepreneurship and Small Business Act of 1999 (The Act); legislation that was further expanded by Congress in 2001.**
According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, minorities own more than 4.1 million firms, and account for nearly $700 billion in revenues.
MBE’s can be self-identified but are typically certified by a city, state or federal agency. DiversityBusiness.com is the primary organization for connecting businesses with Fortune 1000, Government Agencies and Educational organizations.
“Some minority groups are presumed to be socially and economically disadvantaged and can qualify for the 8(a) program. These groups include: African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, Asian Pacific Americans and Subcontinent Asian Americans. Individuals who are not members of one or more of these groups can be considered for the 8(a) program, but they must provide substantial evidence and documentation that demonstrates that they have been subjected to bias or discrimination and are economically disadvantaged. Firms owned by Alaska Native Corporations, Indian Tribes, Native Hawaiian Organizations and Community Development Corporations can also apply to the program.” https://www.sba.gov/starting-business/how-start-business/business-types/minority-owned-businesses
If the 8(a) program were only for Black American descendants of slaves and Native Americans, the money saved could be used to help pay reparations to descendants of slaves.
Dr. King actually talked about this problem of new immigrants being favored over the descendants of slaves, historically, starting at ca 22 min http://youtu.be/RMLyhshxQc8
Kamala’s father was born a British subject (Jamaica), as was her mother (India). Kamala’s mother may be from a communist family – either pro-Russian, Maoist or both. Her family surname seems to be Gopalan. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A._K._Gopalan Plus, India was in the Soviet orbit and her grandfather a diplomat. A cursory glance of titles of her father’s work, suggests that her father is an upper class third world Marxist, too. He is professor emeritus Donald Harris at Stanford. They could be well-meaning but they could be Russian agents. Kamala lived in the wealthiest part of Montreal – one of the wealthiest places in the world. The Bronfmans live there. It’s called Westmount and is rich English-speaking in a poor French-speaking city. She lived there from age 7 and graduated from high school there. The places where her grandparents lived in India is equally ritzy according to Wikipedia.
From our understanding, Attorney Moore wants people to be elected on the basis of policy and not identity politics. However, since the topic will come up, it’s worth noting Corey Bookers’ connection to the Norcross brothers political machine, itself connected to donor-family friend and/or kinsman of Nikki Haley, Holtec’s Kris Singh (born and educated in India thru college). Holtec sells cheaply made, over-priced, nuclear waste cans which will likely eventually kill us all. The same Norcross brother who sits on the board of Holtec is a member of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club.
This blog is supporting no one for US President right now. We are opposing several, however.
Another youtube channel has pointed out that there are lots of Asian Indians in Jamaica and argues that Kamala may be all or almost all [Asian] Indian. http://youtu.be/PeayBmNzfnw Kamala’s father has admitted that he doesn’t know the ethnicity of at least one of his grandmothers. So, that grandmother could be Asian Indian.
Note that American whites did pick cotton too in some places, but apparently not the landowner in West Point, who looks rather scary. The picture was taken in the early 20th century. Mr. Moore says that his mother is Kamala’s age, so his grandmother may have picked cotton growing up.
