CNN has refused to call Kamala Harris multiracial. All their stories refer to her as Black and Asian American. Today, they tried something a little different:
“Harris — from a multi-racial, immigrant family from the liberal West Coast — and Pence — the white, male conservative, evangelical product of the heartland — were an apt representation of the two Americas disputing the election and whose divergent paths and belief systems are at the root of the country’s current political estrangement.”
Yes, they tried to use the term “multiracial” even though they mistakenly hyphenated it. If they were trying to refer to her family, the correct word should have been “interracial.”
We give them points for finally trying to use the word “multiracial,” but they have a ways to go to get it right.
