As Senator Kamala Harris is projected to make history by becoming the United State’s first female, Black and Asian vice president, several internet users took to Twitter to congratulate Joe Biden’s running mate.
If elected, Harris will write several chapters of history. Born of a mother from India and father from Jamaica, Harris will become the first woman, first Indian American, first Black, first South Asian American and the first Asian ever elected as the vice president.
‘History in the making’
Harris had accepted Biden’s announcement of her selection with a shout-out to her “Chithis” and she has connected with several constituencies at the same time. She has also mobilised Indian Americans and with her vice-presidential candidacy, the Democratic nominee has galvanised a large section of the Indian American community to turn out to vote.
Now, even though the official winner of the election is not yet called, Biden is projected to win by almost every US media network. Netizens across the nation are posting praises and expressing delight on soon-to-be US Vice President, Kamala Harris.
