James Franklin, always good at answering big-picture questions, was asked an important one Tuesday about how it will impact his two daughters having a Black female, Kamala Harris, elected as vice president.

“For my family specifically and for my daughters — obviously my wife is Nigerian — having biracial children and people that identify with being Black and Black females, and to see that my daughters now have an example that hey can look to the White House and see someone that looks like them in one of the most prestigious, powerful jobs in the world, is pretty cool. And it’s someone deserving of the opportunity and deserving of the job.

“Hopefully in their lifetime there’s somebody that’s qualified to sit in that other seat that looks like them, as well.”
