*Joe Biden announced Tuesday that California Sen. Kamala ‘Lock ‘Em Up’ Harris is his VP running mate.

“I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked @KamalaHarris — a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate,” he tweeted.

Harris, 55, is the first Indian-American on either major party’s presidential ticket.

Biden and Harris will deliver joint remarks on Wednesday, according to The Washington Post.

As reported by PEOPLE, shortly after Tuesday’s announcement, Harris received an outpour of support from the candidates who were reportedly on Biden’s VP shortlist.

Meanwhile, as someone on Twitter noted, “So we got a president who wrote laws that specifically harmed black people and we have his vice president who enforced the laws that specifically harmed black people… sounds like a perfect match.”

Rep. Karen Bass tweeted that Harris was a “great choice” and noted that her “tenacious pursuit of justice and relentless advocacy for the people is what is needed right now.”

Susan Rice shared her “warmest congratulations” for Biden’s new running mate.

“Senator Harris is a tenacious and trailblazing leader who will make a great partner on the campaign trail,” Rice said in a statement. “I am confident that Biden-Harris will prove to be a winning ticket.”

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer tweeted that she’s “extraordinarily proud to support” Harris and Biden.

Stacey Abrams said she’s “thrilled to support” the Biden-Harris ticket.

Biden announced his VP decision in an email to supporters.

“I know a thing or two about being Vice President. More than anything, I know it can’t be a political decision. It has to be a governing decision. If the people of this nation entrust me and Kamala with the office of President and Vice President for the next four years, we’re going to inherit a nation in crisis, a nation divided, and a world in disarray. We won’t have a minute to waste. That’s what led me to Kamala Harris,” Biden said in the email.

He also recalled the first time he met Harris through his late son, Beau.

“They were both Attorneys General at the same time. He had enormous respect for her and her work. I thought a lot about that as I made this decision. There is no one’s opinion I valued more than Beau’s and I’m proud to have Kamala standing with me on this campaign,” he said.

In a tweet, Harris said she will “do what it takes to make him our Commander-in-Chief.”

  1. Kamala is not a friend to Black Americans. She has a history of siding with police, targeting black women and pandering to white folks. She said she will not do anything specifically for Blacks but is quick to point out the injustices to blacks when trying to help ‘everyone’. No thanks, I’ll pass on this phony.

  2. Its unfortunate.It’s unfortunate. Thanks to Kamala black women (of various types) must endure for the next weeks or months a lot of drama from her running on top of every day drama of being a black woman. There will be a non beneficial burden from her run or etc it will benefit immigrants, migrants, daca,Democrats, felons, dogs and cats..but her run will be a non beneficial burden to black women. And a fibroids bill is a joke. She is a black woman that will ride off of and be defended by black women but be a gift for others off black women backs , horrors and shoulders especially for h1b1 south asians. The only time immigrants and migrants are nice to black people is when they need them or want to scapegoat them. And per usual these radicals and kumbaya nazis allow and help them. Luckily most black people can not see or do not see nor admit or shown to admit the real truth. Most deny it or place the burden to the blacks to carry. Most immigrants migrants and etc are just as irresponsible has been just as harmful to black people as black on black crimes. Yet, black women once again is used as a doormat for a party that always puts them at the back of their minds. Why did we have to have a black woman whom is not going to be of no use but to look black while doing nothing but ignoring and benefitting herself on others off of black people.
