A few days before the November 3 election, liberal vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris urged the American voters to vote because “the ancestors are relying on us.” Harris is from Jamaican and Indian descent, her father is from Jamaica and mother is from India.
In a short video clip where the California senator is talking in front of obviously, a little audience, she also said, “terrible people are making it difficult to vote.”
“Terrible people are making it difficult for most to vote,” she said and then asked her probably, staff named Brandon, if they have heard about it. “And you gotta ask, why are so many powerful people trying to suppress our vote… trying to confuse us about voting.”
“Messing with the post office. Can you believe messing with the post office? Why are they doing all this? Because they know our power… they know our power. They know when we vote, things change,” she added.
She continued, asking the audience to vote for her and Joe Biden, while “Brandon” keeps on saying “yes.”
“We know, we can do better… and we know there is so much at stake. And we know the ancestors are relying on us. Do not let them down, when there is so much at stake,” she said before thanking Detroit.
