October 7, 2020 - Fox News Guest Calls Harris “Hillary Clinton in Blackface”

Evangelical pastor and Trump supporter Darrell Scott, a guest on Fox News’s The Ingraham Angletells Ingraham: “I thought Kamala Harris was Hillary Clinton in blackface tonight. That’s what I thought,” in reference to comments Harris made during the debate about Black Lives Matter protests. Another guest adds, “And you know what was trending on Twitter? Black Hillary.” Their comments rely on shared gender identity to minimize the diversity between the two women. They also evoke existing questions about Harris’ blackness by reducing her racial identity to “blackface.”
