The objections are mainly about her record as a prosecutor. There are plenty of people on the left who feel this way.

UC profs unhappy with Kamala Harris as Biden VP pick

In an article published on the University of California-Riverside website, three professors went on record to express concern for the fact that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden announced Kamala Harris, former Attorney General of California and now U.S. Senator for California, as his running mate.

Natasha McPherson, an assistant history professor who specializes in the history of black women and citizenship, was troubled by Harris’ past as a prosecutor. Campus Reform asked students how they view this part of Harris’ career. They answered by saying Harris was an “inappropriate” choice for vice president, given today’s political climate.

“In this political moment when Americans all over the country are questioning the efficacy of prisons and the function of the police, I expect that young voters, in particular, will challenge Kamala Harris on her prosecutorial record and her policies regarding incarceration.”

McPherson also commented on Harris’ alleged transphobic policies: “She has a troubling record as a prosecutor, including advocating for transphobic policies in prisons and prosecuting parents of truant school children.”

On the other hand, Associate Professor of Ethnic Studies Jennifer Najera, was concerned about Harris’ impact on communities of color.

She said that “[Harris’] history as a prosecutor will detract people who are concerned about how the criminal justice system has disproportionately affected communities of color.”
