Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris’s new embrace of smoking weed didn’t go well back in Jamaica, where her father said her ancestors would be “turning in their grave” after hearing her stereotype the island’s people as “pot-smoking joy seekers.”
Harris cited her Jamaican heritage last week when she admitted to smoking weed. The California senator scoffed at claims that she opposes legalizing the drug by saying, “Half my family is from Jamaica, are you kidding me?” She said she supports legalization because smoking “gives a lot of people joy, and we need more joy.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Her father Donald Harris, who came to the United States from Jamaica in pursuit of a graduate degree in economics, took issue with his daughter’s use of the drug stereotype as she runs for president.
“My dear departed grandmothers, as well as my deceased parents, must be turning in their grave right now to see their family’s name, reputation and proud Jamaican identity being connected, in any way, jokingly or not with the fraudulent stereotype of a pot-smoking joy seeker and in the pursuit of identity politics,” he said in a statement to Jamaica Global that gained attention in the United States over the weekend. “Speaking for myself and my immediate Jamaican family, we wish to categorically dissociate ourselves from this travesty.”
