Dems Accused of Pandering and Cultural Appropriation After Wearing African Cloth and Kneeling

Democrats including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer were ruthlessly mocked for wearing African cloth during their nearly 9 minute moment of silence for George Floyd.

There is more Kente fabric in this picture than at a Ghanaian traditional wedding. The DC African-fabric shop is probably now sold out in order to meet the demand of this ridiculous tokenism by Democrat politicians. Dear Africans step aside! at its worst.

When Congressional Democrats virtue signal through cultural appropriation.

If I was black, I would be thoroughly offended by this pandering. Why do Dems think they are stupid enough to fall for this?

If this were @realDonaldTrump , @PressSec , @VP , @IvankaTrump and other Trump Admin. officials dressed liked this there would be another round of rioting!
