Kamala Harris: "Elephant In The Room" Is Is America Ready For A Black Woman To Be President?

|

AXIOS ON HBO: Discussing her campaign with “Axios on HBO”, Kamala Harris says electability is the "elephant in the room," questioning whether America is ready for a woman - and a woman of color - to be president.

The Axios reporter noted that President Barack Obama is a black man and he was elected president.





KAMALA HARRIS: I have also started to perhaps be more candid talking about what I describe and what I believe to be the elephant in the room about my campaign.

REPORTER: What is that?

HARRIS: Electability.

REPORTER: What do you mean?

HARRIS: Electability. You know, essentially, is America ready for a woman and a woman of color to be president of the United States?

REPORTER: America was ready for a black man to be president of the United States.

HARRIS: And this conversation happened for him.

There is a lack of ability or a difficulty in imagining that someone who we have never seen can do a job that has been done 45 times by someone that is not that person.
