California Senator Kamala Harris is calling people 'racists' again! How fun!

Winner of Kamala's Racist Target of the Day: the medical profession. 

Congrats, Docs. Your plaques and trophies will be forthcoming shortly.

"Black mothers across the country are facing a health crisis that is driven in part by implicit bias in our health care system. We must take action to address this issue, and we must do it with the sense of urgency it deserves," Harris said in a statement.

Harris unveiled a proposal this week to "tackle the worsening maternal mortality crisis in the U.S. and address deep racial disparities in care across the country," according to Politico. 

"The Maternal Care Act" purports to highlight the fact that African American women are three times as likely to die from pregnancy-related complications compared to their white counterparts, according to the CDC.

Harris first introduced her Maternal Care Access and Reducing Emergencies Act in 2018, but it stalled in committee.
