Anyone in the world
The media is very quick to paint Kamala Harris as a Black, South-Asian American Woman. This is where they lose me every time. I hate labels. This particular one is so patronizing. I bet that they would have been ecstatic if she was gay too. 
The Democrat's political party of the US is the most patronizing group there is. It is easy for them to be successful in the country because Americans tend to be very uninformed and mentally lazy. You can't blame them. Sometimes, people are only forced to work when the system is not working. This is not a political post. 

The strange thing is that labels rise as issues around diversity and inclusion are discussed. What most people don't understand is that by labelling a person, you have identified them as the "different category" and that immediately divides us. 

Stop labelling people.
