Kamala Harris Sells ‘That Little Girl Is Me’ T-Shirts. People Aren’t Thrilled About It
Almost immediately after taking part in the recent Democratic debates, Kamala Harris started selling “That Little Girl Was Me” T-shirts featuring a photo of her as a little girl. The move seemed very calculated for many observers.
During the debates, she had an exchange with fellow candidate Joe Biden in which she confronted Biden for his “civil” relationship with late senators James Eastland and Herman Talmadge, who were both segregationists.

Jamarlin goes solo to unpack the question: Was Barack Obama the first political anti-Christ to rise in Black America?
“You also worked with them to oppose busing, and you know, there was a little girl in California who was part of the second class to integrate her public schools,” she said talking to Biden. “And she was bused to school every day. And that little girl was me.”
The little girl was Harris. She said, “And you know, there was a little girl in California who was a part of the second class to integrate her public schools, and she was bused to school every day. And that little girl was me. So I will tell you that, on this subject, it cannot be an intellectual debate among Democrats. We have to take it seriously.”
So soon after the debates wrapped “That Little Girl Was Me” T-shirts went on sale through Harris’ campaign. The shirts range in price from $29.99 to $32.99.
But some weren’t impressed by the product.
“Hmmmm man I was like so about her at the debate tonight and everything felt and seemed so authentic and then I come on here and she already has this t-shirt ready to sell,” someone posted on Instagram, according to Yahoo. “This just made me mad uncomfortable. Like I legit just second guessed wanting to vote for her after seeing this lol.”
