US Election 2020: By BBC News
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has named Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate – the first black woman and Asian American in the role.

Once a rival for the top job, the California senator of Indian-Jamaican heritage had long been considered the front-runner for the number two slot.

The former California attorney general has been urging police reform amid nationwide anti-racism protests.

Mr Biden will face President Donald Trump in the election on 3 November.

    Food for thought:
    Kamala Harris, the daughter of an Indian mother and a black Jamaican father, could be an example for Guyana. Wouldn’t more mixed-race couples and their children help to close the divisions between the two dominant ethnic groups in Guyana? At some point everybody will have a mixed race heritage and be proud of it. This will also take race out of the equation in general elections.
