The Democratic Party, which has historically lagged behind the Republican Party on the issues of racial justice and diversity, finally accomplished something the GOP had already achieved nearly a century ago.
Kamala Harris is set to become the second vice president of color in American history, following in the footsteps of GOP trailblazer Charles Curtis, a Native American who served four years as Herbert Hoover's vice president from 1929 to 1933.
Regrettably, members of the media and other libs are possessed of an irredeemable infatuation with Kamala Harris. As such, they would prefer to see Curtis erased from the annals of history altogether, which is in keeping with the Democratic Party's record on Native American issues.
NPR had to remind its journalists to stop describing Harris as the first person of color to serve as vice president:
Per NPR guidance to reporters: Kamala Harris is NOT first POC VP. Charles Curtis, Hoover’s VP, was member of Kaw Nation.

Of course, that's not the only historic aspect of Harris's election as vice president. Her husband, Doug Emhoff, will be the first "Second Man" in American history.
Many of these achievements could be rendered moot, however, if president-elect Joe Biden does not survive long enough to be inaugurated early next year. Biden, who is about to turn 78, would be the oldest president in history.
If Biden does expire before Inauguration Day, that means Harris would make history again as the first of California kingpin Willie Brown's numerous former love interests to become president of the United States.
