In an interview with The Root, Harris was specifically asked if Trump was a racist. She responded with, “When you talk about his statement on [the Neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia], when you talk about him calling African countries ‘s-hole’ countries, when you talk about him referring to immigrants as rapists and murderers, I don’t think you can reach any other conclusion.”

The Root’s senior reporter Terrell Jermaine Starr followed up with, “So, you definitely would agree that [Trump’s] a racist?”

“I do,” she answered. “Yes, yes, yes.”

Sen. Cory Booker was slammed earlier this month when he was asked the same question and responded with his campaign will not be about “who I’m against or what I’m against” and “I don’t know the heart of anybody. I’ll leave that to the Lord. I know there are a lot of people who profess the ideology of white supremacy that use his words.” See below:

While many people are excited about Harris’ run, there are questions about her rough history as it relates to criminal justice. As Attorney General of California, she was a huge advocate of truancy laws that charged parents a fee for their children being truant and locking the parent up if they could not pay the fee. A Medium.com article from June ripped into Harris, “Kamala Harris’ career was built on both the slave labor of black and brown prisoners and also the pettiness of truancy laws that separated poor and mostly black mothers from their children. Harris was so proud of her history with taking mothers from their children that she used it as her signature campaign agenda while running for AG.”

Harris defended truancy laws in her interview with The Root, saying, “We approved attendance by 30 percent and not a parent went to jail.”
