As Kamala Harris has entered the presidential race (good for her!), I’ve been wondering about the urge to tag her as an African-American candidate when that is only half of her ancestry. Some media reports also include her Indian heritage, writing “The First Indian-American” (a bit confusing with our Native Americans) or “The First South Asian-American” candidate. To stick all of these monikers together is a mouthful and perhaps might provide a sound reason to skip all this tagging. When Obama was running as the “first black” candidate, I never understood what happened to his white half and why one should be emphasized over the other? My solution is simple. Stop pigeon-holing people by race, sexual orientation, age, gender, etc. and let people run on their record, ideas, policies, and plans. Aren’t we sort of post-labeling?
