California Sen. Kamala Harris is married to a white man, Douglas Emhoff. Will that be an issue with some black voters, especially the South, etc.? Is she "authentic"?

If anything, their marriage could show the beauty in America's multiculturalism. It perfectly embodies California, and perhaps she could have a stronger  connection with White voters than Obama (but not as much as the overly nationalistic Trump).

I think it'll be a bigger issue for female voters that her husband is a man.

Black people are protective of black women. Some may think of her husband as a tool or a interloper.

As I've said before, de Blasio should try to outflank both Booker and Harris among black voters by noting that he's the only candidate with a black wife.  Tongue

If the world is really as stupid as it looks right now judging by this thread, President Trump's re-election is a sure thing.

That could hurt her in the Midwest.

No don't be silly.  I think a lot of people can distinguish between their privately held views on society from whether or not they agree politically with someone.  If someone doesn't vote for Kamala Harris because her husband is white then frankly they're probably a voter she's better off not having.

LOL. Won't be an issue.

Maybe that she has no children and that she married him at the age of 50.

Obama allegedly dumped his mixed, Asian-American girlfriend because it thought it would hurt him with Black voters in Chicago, but I doubt it'll matter to Kamala, since she's already half-Black, half-Asan.

He has a point, though it's completely flipped. It's more frowned upon for black MEN to date/marry white women than the other way around. Many black women take issue with it, as if white women are robbing them of "good black men."

No it won't. After all Barack Obama's father was black and her mother was white.
