I found his thread fascinating.  I loved the name digs and the digs into different cities and states. 

Also, I started thinking about this:

Quote
Harris’s Jamaican family comes from Brown’s Town, so named after enslaver Hamilton Brown. It remains a rural area that bustles with markets, where merchants sell meat, spices and other goods.

Harris’s great-grandmother, Christiana Brown, is thought to be both a descendant of Brown and enslaved Jamaicans, according to Latoya Harris, 39, who is also a great-grandchild of Brown, a stern businesswoman everyone called Miss Chrishy.
Brown had children with Joseph Harris, a landowner of European ancestry who raised cattle and planted fields of pimento berries, also known as allspice. Miss Chrishy owned a small store along the town’s main street.
The family has since given up operating the store, but the structure remains. The store sold everyday goods and featured a large brick oven that was used to make its famous bulla cakes, flavorful flat pastries made with flour, ginger and molasses. This was a family of merchants, a legacy that continued with Kamala Harris’s grandfather and Donald Harris’s father, Oscar.

So we know Ms. Harris’ family was Jewish if they owned slaves, a plantation, and a merchant shop in British Jamaica.

She claims she’s not Jewish.  But she has Jewish roots for sure.
