ITT Sound Off: Kamala

In this week's Sound Off, Maria and Julio discuss the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's vice president pick of Senator Kamala Harris for the 2020 election. They talk about this historic VP pick in the midst of a nationwide movement for Black lives and the role that race and identity play in this year's presidential election. ITT Staff Picks: - "For multiracial people, defining their racial identity in America is a complex and fraught issue. And what the energy expended on debating Harris’s identity tells us is that we still have a long way to go when it comes to talking about multiracial people in America." writes Nisha Chittal for Vox.  - From The New York Times: ‘Top Cop’ Kamala Harris’s Record of Policing the Police - Who is Kamala Harris, really?
