The clearest proof that Kamala Harris does not care about civil rights or human rights is that she isn’t in the government of India fighting to better the conditions of Dalits-untouchables – persecuted by her Brahmin ancestors for over 1000 years. She’s not even trying to help them from the US Congress.

Rather she has flat out stolen the VP position from African Americans (ADOS) who were enslaved within the United States and suffered under Jim Crow for hundreds of years. She can still bow out and should.

Dalits-untouchables continue to be persecuted in India by upper castes, like Hindu Brahmin Kamala Iyer Harris. Iyer are Tamil Brahmins.

When Martin Luther King Jr. Was “Introduced” As An Untouchable In India
February 26, 2020
Dalits from almost last one century have been trying to build solidarity among discriminated communities across the world. Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar had written to Du Bois in 1946 [1] to collaborate with Afro-Americans to raise the issue of caste discrimination at the United Nations. It also can not be denied that major Afro-American leaders from Martin Luther King Jr. to Malcolm X had limited information about the condition of untouchables in India and the caste system. Recently, I came across a short audio clip of Martin Luther King Jr., in which he talks about the untouchables of India and compares their situation with Afro-Americans. Below is the transcription of that short clip. You can find the clip at the end of this post.

When I was in India, one afternoon I went down to speak in the southern part of India in a school that was attended by large by young boys and girls who were children of former untouchables. And I remember that afternoon that the principal got up to introduce me. As he came to the end of his introduction he said I would like to present to you a fellow untouchable from the United States of America.

For the moment I was peeved, I was shocked that I would be introduced as an untouchable. But pretty soon my mind ran back across to America and I started thinking about the fact that there were so many places that I could not go because of the colour of my skin. I started thinking about the fact that my 20 million brothers and sisters in the Negro community of America, still at the bottom of the economic ladder, deprived of adequate housing conditions, unable to live in numerous neighbourhoods because of the colour of their skin. I started thinking about the fact that my little children were still judged on the basis of the colour of their skin rather than the content of their character and I had to say to myself that I am an untouchable and every negro in the United States is an untouchable.

Segregation is evil and sinful because it stigmatizes segregated as an untouchable in a caste system and this is why I am convinced that we have the moral edict and moral mandate to work to get rid of this unjust and evil system and we must make it clear all over America that we are through with segregation. Now, henceforth, and forevermore if the American dream is to be a reality.

Not too late and never too late to dump Kamala Iyer Harris and pick Val Demings (or someone else) as Biden VP nominee. There needs to be an anti-Kamala revolt at the DNC.

Rep. Val Demings “I am a descendant of slaves, who knew that they would not make it, but dreamed and prayed that one day I would make it.”

Val Demings is the best pick for VP and President.

Congresswoman Val Demings represents Florida’s 10th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Born in a two-room, wooden framed home in Jacksonville, Val Demings was the youngest of seven children. Her parents, Elouise, a maid, and James, a janitor, did all they could to support their seven children and instill in them the meaning of hard work.

Val took these lessons seriously, getting her first job at age 14, and became the first in her family to graduate from college. With her parents proudly at her side, she received a B.S. in Criminology from Florida State University.

Val began her career in Jacksonville as a social worker, working with foster children. Despite seeing few women in the ranks of law enforcement in the early 1980’s, Val was inspired to move to Orlando to join the police force. She graduated from the police academy as class president, receiving the Board of Trustees’ Award for Overall Excellence, and quickly earned the reputation of a tenacious, no-nonsense cop.

It was that reputation that helped her work her way up the ranks while raising a family. During her 27-year career she served in virtually every department, including serving as Commander of the Special Operations, where she was responsible for some of Orlando’s highest profile tasks, including special events and dignitary protection.

In 2007, Val Demings made history when she was appointed to serve as Orlando’s first female Chief of Police.

Chief Demings was widely praised for her dynamic leadership and a significant drop in crime. She shepherded the department through the financial crisis and despite budgetary constraints kept the same number of officers on the streets. Remarkably, the Orlando Police Department reduced violent crime by more than 40 percent while she was Chief.

Chief Demings founded innovative programs like Operation Positive Direction, a mentoring program that empowers at-risk students through tutoring, community service, and positive incentives. She also launched Operation Free Palms, a project focusing on rejuvenating Orlando’s most crime-ridden housing complex, the Palms Apartments. Collaborating with city officials and faith leaders, this initiative included increasing access to childcare, building playgrounds, a GED program, and job skills training to improve the quality of life in Orlando’s most distressed community.

Rep. Demings is eager to continue her record of public service as the congresswoman representing the people of the 10th District of Florida.

Rep. Demings is married to Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings, is a proud mother to three sons, and proud grandmother to five.

Rep. Demings holds an honorary doctorate of laws from Bethune-Cookman University.

Rep. Demings is an active member of St. Mark A.M.E., Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Orlando Chapter of the Links, Inc., NAACP Silver Life Member, Florida Bar Citizens Advisory Committee, Florida Police Chiefs, National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives, National Association of Women Law Enforcement Executives, National Congress of Black Women, and numerous other affiliations.

Rep. Demings enjoys spending her very limited free time riding her Harley-Davidson Road King Classic motorcycle. She has completed the O.U.C. half marathon as well as the Walt Disney marathon.

Rep. Demings sits on the Judiciary Committee and the Committee on Homeland Security.
