I guess they thought the selection of the first African American / South Asian woman to a major party ticket was more newsworthy than picking someone to hopefully be the sixth white man from Indiana to be VP.  Don't worry, it will probably be above-the-fold headlines when Trump out of desperation dumps Pence and picks Nikki Haley to be his running mate.  Certainly the types of sexist, misogynistic attacks on Harris I have seen in this thread are not going to help Trump close his huge support deficit with women. 
Technically, she is a Jamindian-American and not African-American. The term "typically refers to descendants of enslaved black people who are from the United States." Harris is half Jamaican and half Indian. And her father says their ancestors owned slaves.

I wonder how she will play with Catholics....and more specifically, member of the Knights of Columbus?

https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/kamala-harriss-anti-catholic-bigotry/

SNIP:
In late 2018, while evaluating the nomination of Brian Buescher to serve as a district judge in Nebraska, Harris posed a series of questions insinuating that his involvement in the Knights of Columbus — a charitable Catholic fraternal organization — disqualified him from serving on the bench. Here’s one of her written questions:

Since 1993, you have been a member of the Knights of Columbus, an all-male society comprised primarily of Catholic men. In 2016, Carl Anderson, leader of the Knights of Columbus, described abortion as “a legal regime that has resulted in more than 40 million deaths.” Mr. Anderson went on to say that “abortion is the killing of the innocent on a massive scale.” Were you aware that the Knights of Columbus opposed a woman’s right to choose when you joined the organization?


Harris’s colleague, Democratic senator Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, went a bit further, asking Buescher whether he intended to “end [his] membership with this organization to avoid any appearance of bias” — in other words, intimating that she would withhold her vote at least until he had left the Knights of Columbus.

These two Democrats were, in short, suggesting that belonging to a Catholic group with millions of members, which has been an important charity in the U.S. for more than a century, renders an individual unfit to serve as a judge.

More sinister even than that, Harris used Buescher’s membership in the Knights of Columbus as a pretext to insinuate that opposition to abortion, a core component of Catholic teaching on the dignity and value of human life, disqualifies an individual from the bench.


Buescher eventually was confirmed, and at the behest of Nebraska senator Ben Sasse, the Senate later voted unanimously to reaffirm the constitutional clause forbidding religious tests for public officeholders. But the fact remains that Harris was guilty of reprehensible anti-Catholic bigotry, and there’s no reason to believe her views have changed.

lol. No. Trump is not stupid. Nikki Haley would be the kiss of death.

The only female that should be on a Republican ticket any time soon is the freedom loving Governor from South Dakota:

Here's the New York Times' view of Kamala Harris 20 months ago in January 2019.
All whitewashed now of course....

https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/393233/#respond

New York Times: Kamala Harris Was Not A Progressive Prosecutor: The senator was often on the wrong side of history when she served as California’s attorney general. “Time after time, when progressives urged her to embrace criminal justice reforms as a district attorney and then the state’s attorney general, Ms. Harris opposed them or stayed silent. Most troubling, Ms. Harris fought tooth and nail to uphold wrongful convictions that had been secured through official misconduct that included evidence tampering, false testimony and the suppression of crucial information by prosecutors.”

Upholding wrongful convictions sounds to me like she WAS a "progressive" prosecutor who obtained whatever results she wanted without the burden of law. That is exactly what a "progressive" prosecutor does - ignore the law to obtain desired results.

Will be interesting to see how she reacts when someone asks her if she still believes that Biden is guilty....

I think Tulsi Gabbard would have been a better choice.

https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/393200/#respond

FLASHBACK: While Democrats get crazier, Tulsi Gabbard hits Kamala Harris criticism right on the nose.

Quote
As Gabbard pointed out, then California attorney general, Harris was responsible for putting “over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana.”

Harris’ office also blocked DNA evidence that could have freed a man who may be innocent. And what’s more, as Gabbard said, “She kept people in prison beyond their sentences to use them as cheap labor for the state of California. And she fought to keep (the) cash bail system in place that impacts poor people in the worst kind of way.”
