Once again, the Jamaican culture is being showcased to the entire world as veteran reggae songstress Nadine Sutherland has made a dubplate for Kamala Harris. Dubplates have always been used in Jamaican Politics as was seen in the recently contested Jamaican Elections. However, Nadine has injected the Jamaican culture into the current USA Elections. The "Baby Face" and "Inna Me Blood" singer voiced a dubplate for Harris from her 1993 hit “Action”. Harris, who is of Jamaican descent is the running mate for Democratic Presidential candidate, Joe Biden, in the upcoming 2020 US election. She has received the ultimate endorsement from Jamaica & Nadine: “Action, not a bag a mout’. She clean when she step inna the White House."
Kamala Harris was born to immigrant parents who migrated to the USA in pursuit of a higher quality of life for their family. Through the pursuit and achievement of higher education, they both achieved great things in their careers. Her Jamaican father became an Economics Professor at Stanford, and her Indian mother, a Breast Cancer Researcher. A Howard University and the UC Hastings School of Law Alumni, Harris has broken the proverbial glass ceiling. She is the first woman and first black person to serve as California's Attorney General and the second black woman to serve as a US Senator (Source: CNN.com).
Jamaicans were already tuned in to the November Elections as the results will no doubt have ramifications for various things. However, Jamaicans, far and wide are even more invested, as one of our very own is on her way to the White House. In the most Jamaican way ever, Nadine has endorsed Kamala, through music. Kamala, on her pursuit to Vice Presidency, represents immigrants, blacks, the marginalized, the educated, and maybe most of all, Jamaica.
