Kamala Harris unveils $60 billion plan for historically black colleges


With the second night of democratic debates arriving in just a few short days, candidates are doing their damndest to stand out from the crowd – particularly when it comes to policy.

The first set of debates, which occurred on two concurrent nights due to the unwieldy size of the candidate field, were light on policy.  Instead, it seemed that candidates were content to simply bash either President Trump or one another in an effort to land the soundbites that they had planned.  It was an introduction to the inevitably filthy nature of the coming election, and it caused the American people to begin clamoring for some real substance.

The candidates have begun to provide clarification on some of their larger policy goals as a result, with Kamala Harris just today announcing an initiative to provide fiscal assistance to a number of the nation’s historically black colleges.

She will also release a plan to spend $12 billion on entrepreneurship programs aimed at the black community, her campaign said.

Harris is one of two dozen Democrats in a field led by former Vice President Joe Biden seeking the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican President Donald Trump in the November 2020 election.

She has consistently polled behind Biden among black voters, despite her mixed heritage as the daughter of immigrants from Jamaica and India.

Harris has made a reputation for herself as a bit of a race baiter during the 2020 campaign, even after a blatant lie during Black History Month in which the Senator claimed to “smoke marijuana” and listen to certain hip hop acts during college.

Observers were quick to point out that, at no time during Harris’ education, did any of the artists mentioned have any albums released.
