After all, Kamala Harris may be Black-Indian but both her parents fall into the high-income, highly educated part of the US population (her father, an immigrant from Jamaica, used to be tenured at Stanford's Department of Economics; her mother is a JD from Stanford).
In that sense, Kamala Harris not just successful (being a Senator is success in my book) herself but grew up in a household where success is the norm (getting doctoral degrees from Stanford are also examples of success in my book), and that is more successful than most Americans are. Not that there is anything wrong with that, I think, as long as she has her feet on Earth (and it seems she does).
Kamala is more white than your average white person. However, she is clever and knows what to say in the right moment.
