Designer Masaba Gupta by talking about being a 'mixed girl' just like Harris, and how their roots are similar. Sharing a childhood picture of Harris, Masaba wrote, "You know when i was little & started to understand more about my ethnicity...the fact that I was a mixed child..half Caribbean & half Indian,I thought I was the only one of my kind.I used to think wow, masala there possibly can’t be more like you out there. And then my world opened up, I travelled and on a trip to Antigua I discovered so many more of my kind. It was like looking into a mirror I could never find. And I felt a little less alone in my constant fight to understand racism-it was such a big word. In my fight to understand why I was different. I mean, it’s just so much easier to be like everyone else so you mix with the crowd in Mumbai, isn’t it ? But today I see @kamalaharris & I know different is so good. It’s so good that if you keep your chin up & work hard enough to break out of the color, skin, race box they put you in...you might just make history."
