During an appearance on WMAL's Mornings on the Mall, conservative video bloggers and political commentators Diamond & Silk claimed that Kamala Harris “is not even Black,” according to Media Matters.
- The pair railed into Joe Biden’s vice presidential pick, questioning her identity and her desire to work with Biden after having previously criticized him during the primaries.
- Silk insinuated that the pick was a result of affirmative action:
“It's a sad day in America when you have to pick somebody as vice president based off of affirmative action.”
- Silk also went on to claim that Harris was not black:
“But see you have got to understand something about Kamala Harris. Kamala is not even Black. So you know when she talks about racism, that's why she don't care about it. She's not even Black.”
