Kamala Harris: Disparities Are Based on Race, So Distribution of Resources Should Be

Wednesday on TBS’s “Full Frontal,” Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) called for coronavirus pandemic resources passed by Congress to be distributed based on race.

Harris said, “The disparities that have long existed based on race are now highlighted so of the things I’m calling for around this pandemic is that we make decisions about where the resources should go based on that issue.”

Host Samantha Bee asked, “Why do you think so many other members of Congress have so much trouble calling this systemic racism? Is it because they have never faced anything like this in their entire natural born lives?”

Harris said, “I think it is because there is a problem in general that America doesn’t want to deal with its history on the issue of race and so they don’t want to call the problem what it is because they don’t like the form of the solution.”
