They’re so eager to kiss ass, that they’re totally ignorant of the significance.
On June 8, Democratic members of Congress wearing kente cloths and face masks knelt in Emancipation Hall to memorialize Black lives lost to police brutality. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., read the names of unarmed Black people who’ve recently been killed by police.
“We were there for eight minutes and 46 seconds on our knees,” she told reporters afterward . “My members will attest, it’s a very long time. It’s a very long time.”
The group then introduced the Justice in Policing Act of 2020, aimed at changing policing after a series of Black individuals killed by police officers led to weeks of protest in the U.S. and overseas.
In the days since, social media users have pointed out the cloth’s historical ties to the slave trade in order to criticize the legislators’ garment choice.
“Yesterday the Democrats wore kente scarfs and knelt down for their photo op. So check this out, Kente cloth was worn by the Ashanti. It’s made of silk so the affluent wore it. The Ashanti were also known as slave owners and traders. Huh?” Dave Brandon posted on Facebook June 9. “This makes me wonder why they chose to wear this particular tribe’s garb.”
For decades minorities have served as pawns for the DemProgs. They go along with their race-baiting, victimology, the bigotry of low expectations, and racism against whites and their own people for not towing the Party line.
They like keeping blacks on the Democratic Party plantation. It gives them a demographic to exploit while mouthing platitudes about civil rights and police brutality. The myth of the Left being for minorities has been wrung for all it’s worth. Their target audience is a monolithic easily manipulated voting bloc that is all too willing to participate. As a matter of fact, the Dems readily admit that throwing the race card is simply a tactic for political gain.
