Kamala Also First Asian-American on Presidential Ticket

Groundbreaking VP pick for Joseph Biden comes from a multiracial background, and is the first African-American woman to be chosen to run on a major party presidential ticket. But don’t forget her South Asian mother. Kamala Devi Harris is half-Asian, and the first Asian-American to run for Vice President on a major party US ticket.

According to,

Democrat Kamala Devi Harris or “Kamala” as she is better known, is the first Black Indian Tamil American to win a US Senate seat and the first biracial to be in the Senate. Her father, Donald Harris, is Jamaican, and her mother, Dr.Shyamala Gopalan, is a Tamil from Chennai, India. She is married to a White American, Douglas Emhoff.

Kamala Devi Harris was born on October 20, 1964, and raised in San Francisco’s East Bay where she attended public schools, worshiped at black churches and lived in predominantly African American communities. Her immersion in African American culture didn’t prevent her from being exposed to Indian-Hindu culture, though.

Her breast cancer specialist mother took Harris to Hindu temples to worship.

Will be exciting to watch this ticket from now till November 3rd Election Day, and beyond!

  1. Are you sure that she will be so well received by Indians, especially outside of the USA? Also, didn’t she mostly identify as black during her life and only recently as Indian? And according to Wion and others, she is not well liked among Indians: https:// https://

    • She only needs to appeal to Indian-American voters in the US to succeed in winning, and polls show that is the case. Right now general polling numbers in the US also have her as the most popular of the four candidates on the two tickets, and by far considered the likeliest to be a strong and effective leader. In India, newspapers in her mother’s home area are brimming with articles expressing pride in Harris’ success.
