When Kamala Harris was sworn into office, “she made history as both the first African-American woman to represent California in the Senate and as the first Indian-American senator in the country.”

She was also the first South Asian-American senator in history.

They also reported that according to popular FiveThirtyEight.com:

“Sen. Kamala Harris has not officially said she is running in 2020, but she hasn’t denied it, either, and she’s showing many of the signs of someone who is preparing for a run, including campaigning for her Democratic colleagues in key races and signing a deal to write a book.”

It turns out they were correct!

On the first day of Christmas (Saturday, December 1st)  Kamala Harris gave to us: The possibility of running for President in 2020.

Politico wrote, quoting from a talk with co-host Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” during San Francisco’s “Know Your Value” event on Saturday:

It should definitely start hitting some more nerves that after ALL these years, and the population of women in the country, which according to Quora, “The largest nations which have a predominantly female population are the US and Brazil (both 50.8% female).” We still haven’t had a woman president.

Given that this is an enormous step for the United States, which some of you *LOUD CONDESCENDING COUGH* are sadly unprepared for, we understand why Kamala Harris would hesitate to throw herself into the race.

When Barack Obama won, many, if not most, people of color were, in fact, worried that we would witness a live assassination as he made his way to the podium. Race relations in America are still very strong and after Trump’s presidency we saw a rise in hate crimes throughout the country. Add the fact that Kamala Harris is a woman into the mix and you can’t deny the amount of strength is takes to muster up to be the one to shake the patriarchy.

Whatever her decision may be, she has our full attention and respect. She worked her way to the top through strength, ambition, determination and against all odds. On that alone, she already deserves to win. After all, that’s the American way.
