Blacks Wear Kente To Fight Trump

9:20:00 PM

Members of the Congressional Black Caucus wore traditional African kente cloth to Tuesday nights State of the Union Address to protest President Trumps alleged shithole countries comment.

Wearing kente cloth to the #SOTU with my fellow @OfficialCBC Members to stand in solidarity with people from you-know-what countries, Rep. Bobby Scott tweeted before the speech.

The colourful cloth is associated with Ashanti royalty in now modern-day Ghana and has a history in West African nations associated with the slave trade.

The members appeared unenthusiastic while watching the speech, and did not applaud when President Trump touted his record with African-American unemployment.

African American unemployment has been declining for a decade yet its still double white unemployment, Congresswoman Alma S. Adams tweeted during the speech.

Would POTUS be celebrating if this stat were the other way around
