After playing a montage of commentators such as Pat Robertson, Rush Limbaugh and Dinesh D’Souza, leveling that particular attack against the California senator, Noa said, “You want Kamala Harris’ legacy all along. But to say that Not black
“Is she black enough to get out of a restaurant in Jim Crow South back in the day?” He asked. “Would she have gone black who would have to get it again?” Was she black enough to keep a white girl out of school as a girl? Then she is black! ”
The host then offered a simple test: “You know how you know you’re black?” If you’re dating a white person and before you meet your parents for the first time, they start a sentence saying, ‘Hey, listen, then before we go in …’ – you. Are black ”
What is “particularly ironic” about conservative media “trying to exclude Harris from the Blackies,” he continued, “is the opposite of what white America has done for centuries” “as black as possible.” Defining as many people, whether they wanted it or not. “After a lengthy explanation of the so-called” one-drop rule “, Noa said,” Yes, it’s disgusting that these people are now looking at Kamala Harris Trying to stop being black. ”
But he also called it “the path of sacrament on the road to greatness”, highlighting that the second elder DNC speaker on Wednesday night faced the same thing during his 2008 presidential campaign.
“Your blackness as a person is never questioned in failure,” Noah explained. “But in success, it is kept under the microscope.” When a black person commits a crime, he said that you’ve never heard Fox News say, “Hold on, this can’t be a black-on-black crime.” Perhaps it is half Indian-on-black crime. ”
“But as soon as blackness is being perceived for excellence and perfection, often considered an area of whiteness, when whites begin to question one’s black credentials,” he said.
Everyone wanted to question Obama’s blackness when he was running away. Noa said, “But once Obama came to the White House and conservatives didn’t like his policies, he magically turned into the Blacks homeboy who is destroying the country.” “So I think this is the silver lining for you, Kamala. Fox News may now question your blackness. But best of all believe, the second you step into that White House with Joe Biden and you make some decisions. Take what they don’t like, trust me, you’re as black as can be. ”
