"The familiar public narratives about black women don’t fit Kamala Harris. She’s not a jezebel, a mammy or an Omarosa."

"She’s also the first viable woman running for president who has had an entire adult dating life. Elizabeth Warren got married (the first time) at 19, Michele Bachmann at 22, Carly Fiorina 23, Hillary 28 and even 2020 candidate Kristen Gillibrand got married at 35. Harris, who married her husband at the age of 49 was living her best life into her 30s and 40s. So yes, we were bound to hear about Willie Brown and yes, at some point, it will come out that she dated talk show host Montel Williams too. She was an attractive high profile single black woman in California, what else was she supposed to be doing when she wasn’t prosecuting people?"

From "Sen. Kamala Harris Is a 54-Year-Old Black Woman, and Yes, She Dated Willie Brown. So What?" by Jason Johnson at The Root. With this video:



I like that phrase "living her best life." Here are "10 Tips on How to Live Your Best Life" from the editors at the Deepak Chopra website. ("Set Intentions... Visualize... Meditate... Journal... Travel... Invest in Your Health... Practice Daily Self-Love...") And here's the Cardi B song, "Best Life," which begins "I'm livin' my best life, yeah, yeah."

Anyway, Johnson seems annoyed to have to address the sex life of Kamala Harris: "I have to write about her dating past because her ex-bae, 84-year-old former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown decided to have a Quincy Jones moment and spill tea on their relationship."

Sex politics. Sex in politics. Diversity politics, always and forever.

Thorley Winston said...

Actually I'm pretty sure the reason for the comments is because she slept with Brown to get ahead in her career. The proper comparison isn't to Clinton, Warren or Bachman it's to Monica Lewinsky.

Sure. Just a typical sistah from the 'hood. It's difficult to think when we have had people more obsessed with pigment in human skin than the modern Democrats.

IMHO, when you're screwing a married man it's not dating.

Viable women? An entire adult dating life? She's being presented as the woman that has done it all.

Grrl be havin' it all.

I think she's appealing to the nail-and-beauty-salon demographic.

spill tea

I want off this planet.

Also, hate to point out the obvious, but to many people marrying a good partner early enough in life to enjoy many years of harmonious and dignified compantionship is living the best life, duh

Also, hate to point out the obvious, but you're not 'dating' a powerful man twice your age ~ you're servicing him, duh

Hillary 28...

So you're saying Ms. Rodham had no dates before she was 28? I'm … surprised?

Bill, Republic of Texas said...

She’s also the first viable woman

But we can still abort her, right?

Geez, I've been around n.n. too long

rehajm said...

Spill tea is new to me. Sounds like some southern belle expression. Bless his heart

Now I see it's a gay guy expression. So in a way it could be...

"She was an attractive high profile single black woman in California, what else was she supposed to be doing when she wasn’t prosecuting people?"

What does her race have to do with it?

buwaya said...

This is dumb. Its not Willie Brown who "spilled tea".
This was the talk of the town - several towns - back in the 1990s-early 2000's.
Including the payoffs/benefits she received from Brown.
Indeed, Willie only acknowledged a few of them.

And the problem here is that not only was K.Harris "dating" a married man, but that matter of payoffs and favors. W. Brown has a long record of using his position to reward his mistresses.

rehajm said...

Oprah likes the phrase Live your best life. See? Kamala is Oprah!!!

Limited blogger said...

Maybe they better slow their roll. They get Kamala instantly installed at the top, only one way to go from there.

Lucid-Ideas said...

Thorley said, "The proper comparison isn't to Clinton, Warren or Bachman it's to Monica Lewinsky."

I have never really believed that regarding Hillary. Ever. That couple was political from day one. Consciously making the decision to screw someone to get ahead vs. subconsciously - once or for 40 years one-day-at-a-time - is arguing commission vs. omission.

Hillary's entire political career is non-existent without her last name. She'd have been Executive Director of some multimillion 501c4 somewhere.

AlbertAnonymous said...

Wasn’t she sleeping with an older and married man in order to further her career? I wouldn’t call that “her best life” or “dating”.

Kinda just a regular Ho....

buwaya said...

Though K.Harris was brought up by her Indian mother and her father was, though black, not an American black, she did go to Howard. Its sort of like what Obama did in marrying Michelle.
That is, it is a credential toward being "black" in an American sense.

Bay Area Guy said...

These people are shameless idiots.

No, there is nothing wrong with dating. We love dating! Date a lotta guys, Kammy!

The problem is when, at age 30, you date the most powerful man in California, Downtown Willie Brown, who's married and gives you a string of high-paying, powerful jobs.

That's call "sleeping your way to the top".

Most 30-year old, female attorneys in San Francisco were not given that privilege. They had to work their way forward, not SLEEP their way forward.

See the distinction?

SDaly said...

Willie Brown's comments were not accidental, Harris knew she had to get ahead of this issue. So, lo and behold, we are getting columns exculpating her from securing highly paid government positions by sleeping with a married man, 30 years her senior, who held the key. In two weeks, with no major media questioning of "her truth" the public will be informed that we have moved past any negative questions about Harris's rise to power.

stevew said...

"spill tea" as in gossiping?

Please don't show this to my wife, she would be devastated to know she hasn't lived her best life. We married when she was 21 and I 22. That was 38+ years ago. I'd hate for her to have to experience the agony of regret at this point.

Henry said...

She’s also the first viable woman running for president who has had an entire adult dating life.

That's a great point and it should be extended to just about everybody that runs for President. You have some outliers like Grover Cleveland and James Buchanan and Donald Trump, but the overwhelmingly normative conceit is that the President is a lifelong married person.

Every politician clambers upwards by using connections. If Lyndon Johnson had to have sleep with Sam Rayburn to get ahead, he would have. Instead he just flattered the old man into doing him favors.

But truly, this is a boring story.

Nonapod said...

It's both interesting and depressing to see how the Democrat Media Complex has begun the reframing, spinning, and reimagining of all the various traits of the Early Favorite But Not Yet Fully Anointed One otherwise known as Kamala Harris. They preemptively dismiss any potential criticisms or attempt reframe them as Good Things. By remaining unmarried until she was almost 50 she in fact "lived her best life!". Does that mean people who get married before that age are not in fact living their best life? I mean, I personally don't care much but I think it's kind of a nasty way to spin it.

YoungHegelian said...

Living, lo, these many years in the DC area, I can attest to the fact that there is no shortage of upwardly mobile professional women who, if they haven't used sex as a step up the ladder, have actively considered it at least once in their life.

These women do not appreciate having moral judgements rendered on their "life-style" choices, especially the fact that their partners-in-sin often are married men. These women, as befits their liberated lifestyle, tend to be solidly Democratic.

That's why we'll see lots of whitewashing (no pun intended) of Ms Harris' behavior from the press, just like we did with HRC. The behavior in question hits too close to home with too many liberal women.

YoungHegelian said...

She’s not a jezebel, a mammy or an Omarosa.

I think the juries still out on the jezebel question.

Henry said...

The scolds are out.

Gospace said...

Harris, who married her husband at the age of 49 was living her best life into her 30s and 40s

Her best life. Sure. And neglected to have children along the way. I wonder how many other married men she dated... Excellent role model for all young girls. At age 54- she's an evolutionary dead end. Her husband? Two children from a previous marriage. Information about his ex-wife? A google search indicates that the mainstream media is supremely uninterested in her. Of the facts surrounding their divorce. First page of search results brought no information except for her first name. Unless Obama opposes her candidacy, divorce records are likely to to remain sealed....

Bill, Republic of Texas said...

The familiar public narratives about black women don’t fit Kamala Harris. She’s not a jezebel, a mammy or an Omarosa.

He needs to listen to more hip-hop. The most familiar narrative of a black woman is the "ho."

She fits that one.

rhhardin said...

She seems like a good-for-nothing to me but I'm not a woman.

Dave Begley said...

She's a slut and a whore. How about that?

Recall that old Motown song "Woman to Woman." It's Blanche calling up Kamala. He's my man! I wash his clothes, etc.

rcocean said...

Like Obama, she's about as far away from the average black person as you can be.

A Tamil-Hindu mother, a medical scientist, who raised her alone after the age of 12, in Montreal Canada. Her father? A Jamaican Stanford Econ Professor. Before 12, she grew up in the mean streets of Berkeley CA. Graduate of U/C Hasting Law School (SF). After that she was in D/A in the Bay Area for 14 years before becoming California AG, and the Senator in 2016. When Boxer retired she was the Establishment Choice and she got 78% from the Democrat Convention.

She's married to a Jewish Leftist, and has two Jewish Step-Children.

Skeptical Voter said...

What the heck is an Omarosa? Yes I know that an Omarosa was in the White House for a while, but what stereotype is an "Omarosa" in the writer's mind?

Now I wouldn't call Ms. Harris a Jezebel for sleeping with an older married man. Maybe you might call her a little homewrecker if in fact Willie had divorced his wife to be with Kamala. But he didn't. So she's maybe just an unsuccessful homewrecker.

rcocean said...

You can see why she's the New York Times favorite candidate. She's Barbara Boxer with a better personality and a black skin.

Bay Area Guy said...

Just as Trump brought Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey and Juanita Broaddrick to the last Hillary debate, he should bring all the homely female Assistant DA's in San Francisco, who DIDN'T sleep with Downtown Willie Brown -- let's see how their careers turned out.

Well, there is that joke(but is it?) that Bill and Hillary met because they were dating the same woman.....

A jezebel, a mammy and an Omarosa walk into a bar. Bartender says - I see it's still OK to insult and stereotype conservative women of color.

gilbar said...

Henry said... If Lyndon Johnson had to have sleep with Sam Rayburn to get ahead, he would have.

seriously? you don't think he did??
"Rayburn married once, to Metze Jones (1901–1982),sister of Texas Congressman and Rayburn friend Marvin Jones. He had corresponded with her for nine years, and at the time of the wedding Rayburn was 45 and Jones was 26. Their 1927 marriage ended after only a few months"
Rayburn was 45 when he got married the first (and Only) time [had an entire adult dating life?] their marriage lasted ONLY A FEW MONTHS. After which, he went back to 'grooming' young boys, like, for instance; Lyndon Johnson.

gbarto said...

This is a clever way to claim we've picked on Harris enough before we get to her typical D.A. and A.G. behavior defending the hiding of exculpatory evidence and making sure, behind the scenes, that real information about abuses by the cops didn't get out. The secret of this Jamaican-Indian is that ordinary African-Americans got railroaded by the people below her and she sided with the cops.

That doesn't sound like the truth, but I'm willing to play along because usually the truth in situations like this is very painful. There's still no way I'm going to vote for her, though.

@rcocean,

That's the dirty little secret of much of the black upper class -- they're completely unrepresentative of the majority of the black community. Quite a few come from Afro-Caribbean families, and grow up in strict two parent homes. They're also disproportionately Roman Catholic.

So Kamala is who trump was talking about in the locker room that time.

If she just met Weisenstein she could have starred in "King Kong". I bet she's a screamer.

Lucid-Ideas said...

The subtext here is so rich. Coded message as follows:

As a female, if you use your sexuality to advance your career once, twice, or however many times - and you are successful - you "are living your best life."

If you've used your sexuality to advance you career - and you haven't been as successful (#metoo) - we sympathize and feel sorry for you. How can we help?

If you've used your sexuality to advance your career - against other me or other women - WE INTEND TO RIP OUT YOUR OVARIES AND HANG THEM FROM OUR REAR-VIEW MIRROR.


I > Us > They > We > She

More coded message in coordination with black-on-black: YOU GO GIRL!!! WAY TO SHAKE IT!!!

This is also a secret jab at the white "Beckys" Clinton, Warren and Gillibrand...

rcocean said...

"You forgot Howard U. That's the critical thing on the "black" identity axis."

True. Except Howard is in DC. Like Clinton who went to Georgetown, I bet Harris had her "eyes on the prize" at an early age.

Plus, it also makes me suspect, like Obama, she wasn't the greatest student. Her background says Ivy League and Harvard Law and her resume says Howard and Hasting Law.

Kamala is one of the many MeToo success stories.

Willie is a man of his sword. He put her on two commissions where she got a combined $200k to do nothing but suck Wiillie’s dick. And he backed her for DA.

Condi Rice has never married and has no children, but it is possible for her to be elected President, because she plays golf.

Jimmy Carter was the last President who didn't play golf. If not for Watergate he probably wouldn't have gotten elected. And isn't that why a lot of people hate him, because he didn't play golf. If only he could have worn those sweaters on the golf course, or had a putter in his hand when he turned down the thermostat ...

So, the second narrative is the basic "hey, she had a normal single love life". This is 1-2 punch of protecting her flank. First, it is inappropriate to examine her romantic activities. The second is that it is all part of her general "romantic life".

I don't give a shit about her dating Montel Williams or anyone else. But, I do think banging Willie Brown in a quid pro quo career building move is fair game and goes to character and credibility.

"Eventually, the nonsensical nature of his pseudo-profound blatherings inspired me to coin a term to describe it: Choprawoo.

Unfortunately, far too many people find Deepak Chopra’s combination of mystical sounding pseudo-profundity, his invocation of “cosmic consciousness” and rejection of genetic determinism, and his advocacy of “integrating” all manner of quackery into real medicine (...) to the point of getting actual legitimate medical school faculty to assist him with an actual clinical trial compelling. He is, alas, one of the most influential woo peddlers out there."

Practice daily self-bullshit.

I don't think anyone will come forward with an interesting, first hand account of his dates with Kamala. Like JFK, MLK, Bill Cosby, Harvey Weinstein, and Michael Jackson she's safe from prying eyes.......Donald Trump flirted with a woman while waiting for the elevator, and the woman damn near fell over herself in her rush to get on tv and report it. Women, even pornstars like Stormy Daniels, with stories about Trump are treated with dignity and respect. The media no longer give Dem rape victims the Paula Jones treatment, but they more or less file them away after one report........I don't know what the female equivalent of sexual harassment is, but any guy with a bad story about Kamala would be wise to keep it to himself. His life will be destroyed. I

Her super-hero roll-out commercial was ridiculous. It was like a kid tying a towel on for a cape and jumping off the edge of the roof. And then announcing for President. "Wakanda Forever!" As all Marvel fans know, Wakanda is Willie Brown's other girlfriend.

Seriously, as it turns out, some of Wakanda's citizens want to keep their own health insurance. Not to mention the millions who work in the industry. For her to just casually decree the destruction of an industry and the freedom to buy insurance is staggering in its arrogance. And it was said offhand, with no plan or thought put in to it.

She has no accomplishments as a senator. As a prosecutor, she was obsessed with wiretapping and political persecutions. We just had eight years of that. From all I can gather, she seems to believe the presidency is her entitlement based on Trump Derangement, her pigment and lady bits. About as shallow as they come.

I don't know if she is a jezebel, a Mammy or an Omarosa (although the Lying Left protesting that she isn't would make me suspicious she is); but she is clearly a statist.

(Interesting example: recent Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacy "Tank" Abrams, who posed as a benevolent Mammy in her tv ads but actually was just another statist bitch.
