Kamala Harris says she's 'proud of being black' but doesn't call herself African-American after critics point out she's half Jamaican and half Indian – and lived in CANADA

Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris, who launched her presidential campaign last month, said Monday that she won't waste time and energy defending herself against claims that she's not 'black' enough to represent African-Americans in the White House.

Harris is the daughter of Indian and Jamaican immigrants and spent her high school years living in Canada. She has ducked the label 'African-American,' identifying as 'black' – or, simply, as 'American.'
