Kamala Harris is accused of hiring a Southern Drawl for only one debate question: Senator & # 39; used a different accent & # 39; while he was a passionate & # 39; sermon & # 39; talked about the Democratic party that took the black voice for granted
- Harris claimed Democrat candidates & # 39; showed up in a black church & # 39; during the elections
- & # 39; The question must be, where have you been? What are you going to do? & # 39; she asked
- Harris's speech was compared to a sermon and received applause in Georgia
- But others accused her of influencing the accent, as Hillary Clinton has done in the past
Kamala Harris was accused of hiring a southern guild last night when discussing how the Democratic party had taken the black vote for granted.
The senator was asked about her recent criticism of Pete Buttigieg & # 39; s approach to African-American voters during the Georgia debate.
Harris replied that candidates had taken the backbone of the Democratic Party for granted … they appear when it is, you know, close to election time and appear in a black church and want to get the vote.
Viewers claimed that her accent had changed during the speech. Julie Stewart tweeted: & # 39; Why does she speak with a southern accent? Was she not a lifelong resident of Bay Area? & # 39;

Harris said: & # 39; When black women are three to four times more likely to die in connection with childbirth in America, when black woman's sons will die more due to gun violence than any other cause of death, when black women 61 earn a penny the dollar compared to all women, who tragically earn 80 cents with the dollar, the question must be, where have you been? & # 39;
Harris & # 39; s speech, compared by TV commentator Bakari Sellers with a sermon, was interrupted on points by crowd hollers.
& # 39; This answer was extremely powerful tonight and a sermon for many, & # 39; tweette Sellers.
Harris spoke about reviving what she & # 39; the Obama coalition & # 39; which she said were color people, the LGBTQ community and the working class.
Harris's performance during the debate was also memorable because she tore Tulsi Gabbard to pieces.
& # 39; I regret that at this stage we have someone trying to be the Democratic candidate for president of the United States, who spent four years full-time on Fox News during the Obama administration criticizing President Obama, & # 39; Harris said.
Gabbard said her claim & # 39; ridiculous & # 39; used to be.

Harris is not the first democratic president to be hopefully accused of adjusting her accent.
Hillary Clinton was accused of changing her intonation more than once during her campaign in the south during her failed run at the White House in 2016.
And more recently Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez was criticized for influencing an accent, while focusing on a predominantly black audience alongside Al Sharpton in New York.
