    I can't read the dates on those class photos. What year are they?

    Nevermind, I found it. You probably should have linked the GatewayPundit where you got the story.
    Histories say the Berkeley integrated its public schools in 1968, and Harris would have started school in the next year or two. But Obviously, Berkeley High School was integrated before that, so I don't know if 1968 was the full integration or what.

    btw - how'd you figure she was off by 20 years?

    The yearbook is right there showing black students at the same school as whites in 1963. She was born in 64 I think after integration had took place in those Berkeley schools. The 20 year thing is because she states her lie like she would have been denied things because of being limited due to a segregated high school resume if she was born 2 years earlier and fails to mention she was schooled in Canada from a young age. Her whole statement was a complete lie and a joke basically.

    I think her banging a married party boss thirty years her senior was significantly more instrumental in her political rise than Brown v. Board of Education.

    I realize you're just parroting GatewayPundit, but did you read how Berkeley schools became fully integrated in 1968?

    This thread needs way too much independent research to know what is going on. That makes me more suspicious than the OPs claim of alternative facts, given track records.

    It doesn't matter she just put a blatant lie out there and even using her 20 year Brown case remark - that is even 3 years after that nutty school had a gay dude serve as the dang prom queen there.

    The fact is that Berkeley elementary schools didn't integrate until a year or two before she started in school. So she could have been in the second class.

    Yea. I assume she meant 2nd class to integrate from starting school thru graduation which adds up. I guess the point is that she owes nothing to integration?

    Pictorial evidence shows that The Student Republican Club at Berkeley High was much larger than the Student Dem Club, and included more African-Americans. Diversity circa 1963.

    Funny how a president that lies on the regular brings out the most obscure and insignificant "lies" the right can find regarding their latest "lefty" villain.

    It's crap that Harris or any other politician lies like was done in the OP. And they should be held accountable.

    But in an environment where the POTUS does it several times a day every day on average, how do you set any kind of baseline for expectations of integrity?

    And today's Republican Party is much more like the Southern wing of the Democrat Party circa 1963 than the Republican Party of the that era. For example, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was enacted with the support of Republicans. When the Supreme Court in Brown v Board of Education held school segregation unconstitutional it was under Chief Justice Earl Warren, a former Republican Governor of California. When Nixon ran for president in 1960 he was a greater advocate for civil rights than John F. Kennedy. He completely shifted in 1968 adopting the "Southern strategy" which marked the real shift of the party from the party of Lincoln to the party of Strum Thurmond.

    Yea, we need something original here. You already used that one for Hillary. :emoji_smile:

    How about Crazy Kamala or Corrupt Kamala or Cheatin' Kamala or Cranky Kamala or Killer Kamala? Okay, yea, the last one sounds more like a term of endearment.

    No, the right did that with their white identity politics.

    Convenient meager version of history there Virginny. For at least 50 [LBJ's so-called Great Society] years it's been the goal of the left in this country to divide this nation along class, race and now gender in an attempt to gather support from various 'victim' groups. The seductive web of identity politics. The black community, the Hispanic community, the LGBLT community, the Muslim community, the (good heavens!) un-documented immigrant community, and on and on--victims all. One Nation, indivisible? What happened to E Pluribus Unum? LBJ: 'Gentlemen, if we pass this, the [expletive deleted, racial slur] will vote for us for the next hundred years".
    Thomas Sowell had much to say about this subject:

    She was born in 1964. I doubt she started school at age 4.
