5. This

The identities claimable by people as "black" and/or "African American" are probably not going to make sense to people who are neither. Post-colonial life is messy.

When you see a community's internal dialog snipped out of context and used to attack someone from that community, it should be a red flag. Kamala Harris is black, and of Indian origin, and neither of those matter quite so much as her record as a public servant. (And she's not even my candidate, but this attack you're seeing is so cynical and divisive I feel the need to say something.)
