Jamaica's diverse ethnic roots is reflected in the national motto 'Out of Many One People'. Most of the population of 2,812,000 (July 2018 est.)[11] are of African or partially African descent, with many being able to trace their origins to the West African countries of Ghana and Nigeria.[71][110] Other major ancestral areas are Europe,[111] South Asia, and East Asia.[112] It is uncommon for Jamaicans to identify themselves by race as is prominent in other countries such as the United States, with most Jamaicans seeing Jamaican nationality as an identity in and of itself, identifying as simply being 'Jamaican' regardless of ethnicity.[113][114] A study found that the average admixture on the island was 78.3% Sub-Saharan African, 16.0% European, and 5.7% East Asian.[115] Another study in 2020 showed that Jamaicans of African descent represent 76.3% of the population, followed by 15.1% Afro-European, 3.4% East Indian and Afro-East Indian, 3.2% Caucasian, 1.2% Chinese and 0.8% other.[116]

If anything they would likely hope for support from the many times larger Indian community in the USA. Harris would not be the first bi-racial POTUS if that were to happen. But she would be the first one who was not half white.

I have no doubt this election season will get ugly.  I make no apologies for my observations.

Your contribution to the ugliness is duly noted.

I'm more concerned with how ugly it may get AFTER the election.

According to Michael Cohen and from his new book “Disloyal, A Memoir,”.  He predicted that the president “will never leave office peacefully.”

Cohen also portrays himself as a “bad guy” who helped the president, who he said acted “like a mob boss.”

“From golden showers in a sex club in Vegas, to tax fraud, to deals with corrupt officials from the former Soviet Union, to catch and kill conspiracies to silence Trump’s clandestine lovers, I wasn’t just a witness to the president’s rise—I was an active and eager participant,” he wrote.

I saw something the other day that talked about the first Black woman on a Presidential ticket.  I must have missed how India and Jamaica combined to make Africa.  Those tectonic plates sure do move fast.

Southerners considered 1/16th black to be black.

Harris is (to quote Jamaican Sarah Cooper speaking about herself) black enough to be called the N-word, but not black enough to use it.

Funny, no-one has ever claimed that every other VP in history was only picked to go after the European vote.

Congratulations on being racist enough to assume that Harris has nothing to offer but her colour.

You remind me of Sarah Palin.  There are around 54 nations in Africa.

Late night posting while exhausted and I forgot which continent was where. My mistake, thanks.

I cannot see Russia from my house though.

"Again"?   That implies that at some time he stopped being confused.

All just a part of Dee DeVos"s education program. Keep 38% of Americans malleable so they can buy whatever the GOP is selling.

Yeah!  I saw a GOP representative calling himself African-American - but I found out he was born in the US!  What a liar.

You mean the one where her parents are Puerto-Rican, and east Indian?  Not African American?

No, not that one. That would be a very stupid conspiracy theory given that A ) neither of her parents are Puerto Rican, and B ) Puerto Ricans are Americans.

Hey, I've seen "West Side Story".  They come from PR to America and they speak funny:

Nor should you. But if you feel compelled to apologise for your ignorance, prejudice and failure to fulfill the most basic expectations those of us who give a shit have of someone with a voter registration card I'm sure we'll be all ears.

That could almost fit the definition of a PA.  If only I gave a flying f$#k about what you thought about me.  It's arrogance like this that gets Republican's elected.
