Kamala Harris’ ‘Black Panther’ tweet brings Senator’s ‘black power’ push to light – does she have white constituents?

What happened to judging others by the content of their character?

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) took to Twitter Sunday night to share a fun and harmless photo of herself at the movies, watching the “Black Panther?”

The new Marvel superhero film has been hailed by liberals for its portrayal of a successful-but-fictional African nation, as well as for tackling issues of black identity.

Harris shared a CNN article with her followers that emphasized the film’s racial overtones.

She also praised a nation-wide effort by left-wing activists to register voters at screenings of the movie.

Harris manages two verified Twitter accounts. One, @SenKamalaHarris, is her official Senate profile and typically features more reserved commentary on public policy.

The other account, @KamalaHarris, is for her personal use and contains remarks that are much less filtered.

A closer look at the senator’s personal Twitter account reveals a history of racially-charged comments that speak to liberal identity politics.

The tweet pinned to the top of Harris’ page reads:

“My advice to Black girls everywhere: whenever you find yourself in a room where there aren’t a lot of people who look like you — be it a classroom, or a boardroom, or a courtroom — remember that you have an entire community in that room with you, all of us cheering you on.”

The words received some backlash from users who took issue with the notion that one should feel uncomfortable being surrounded by people of a different race.

Earlier this month, Harris retweeted a post calling for the election of many more black women to the Senate–even though African American females make up only about 7 percent of the US population.

Harris also spoke highly of Kehinde Wiley, who painted Barack Obama’s presidential portrait–even though Wiley also made paintings of black women holding decapitated white heads.

Would Harris’ liberal supporters be cheering so enthusiastically if she were calling for more white lawmakers, or praising the work of an artist who had depicted whites holding the severed heads of African Americans?

The California Democrat has repeatedly referred to “Dreamers”–illegal aliens brought to the US as minors–as the “best” of America, rather than reserving the title for the nation’s citizens.

She also accused ICE of being guilty of “abuse of power” for carrying out raids in accordance with federal immigration law.

For all her racially-charged posts, the Democrat does have at least one white constituent: her husband, attorney Doug Emhoff.

Perhaps in Harris’ mind, that justifies her constant race-baiting.

The senator’s remarks have earned her sharp criticism from many Twitter users.
