Vice President Kamala Harris reportedly "tracks" journalists whom she believes do not understand her as an individual, according to a profile published in The Atlantic.

Harris, who in January became the first female, first Black, and first Indian American vice president in American history, has long spoken of her biracial heritage and the way in which it has shaped her life experiences.. …

Harris reportedly continues to bring up the January 2019 incident of Washington Post reporter Chelsea Janes, who attended a Washington, DC, book event and drew the ire of the members of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. by labeling their signature “skee-wee” as “screeching.”

Harris pledged the sorority while an undergraduate student at Howard University, a historically Black institution of higher learning, and it is a powerful part of her personal identity.

“Members of her Howard sorority are in the room and screeched when she mentioned her time there,” Janes tweeted, before deleting the text. “Did not expect to hear screeches here.”

She quickly apologized: “Guys, I’m so sorry. Had never heard about the Skee Wee call before, but I certainly have now. Meant only to convey enthusiasm in the room!” …

Harris also sometimes “comes off as so uninteresting that television producers have started to wonder whether spending thousands of dollars to send people on trips with her is worthwhile,” according to The Atlantic.
