Congressional Democrats criticized for wearing Kente cloth at event honoring George Floyd
"The significance of the Kente cloth is our African heritage,"

About two dozen Democratic lawmakers, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, knelt for eight minutes and 46 seconds at the Capitol's Emancipation Hall as a tribute to Floyd on Monday.

After, they held a news conference unveiling their new legislation aimed at cracking down on police brutality and reforming policing in the US. 
Most of them were seen wearing Kente cloths during the moment of silence as well as during the news conference. 

But on social media, many argued that the lawmakers were just using the cloth as a political prop and that it was just another instance of performative activism. 
 
"Standing in front of a church and holding up a bible you never read for a photo op is no different than kneeling in kente cloth you never wear for a photo op," Charles Robinson, a sports reporter for Yahoo tweeted, referring to the now infamous moment when President Trump held up a Bible at St. John's Episcopal Church for a photo-op last week. 

"What if they, like, just passed some laws instead of dressing up like a Wakandan chess set?" screenwriter Eric Haywood tweeted. 

"My ancestors did not invent Kente cloth for them to be worn by publicity (obsessed) politicians as 'activism' in 2020," Jade Bentil, a Ghanaian-Nigerian researcher at University of Oxford tweeted.

Nancy Pelosi: (19:13)
"Well, let me leave the presentation to it up to the Caucus. We certainly do see that this is more than one or two people acting. There’s a record, and that’s what I think this is so important about how many people are turning out, because as important as George Floyd’s life is, and our hearts are broken that his life was taken, it’s about a pattern of behavior. So I would use the word pattern. We’ll see how the Black Caucus will want to present this. I’ll tell you this. Speaking of systemic, I had the privilege, and some of you know this, to go with the Black Caucus to Ghana last summer. It was a 400th anniversary of the first slaves coming across the ocean. I don’t say to America, because America didn’t even exist then. It wasn’t the United States, just coming across the ocean."

Instead of taking a "Trip" to Ghana, maybe her and her White Privileged Democrat cohorts should have taken a trip to Minneapolis, or LA, or Chicago, etc... and " See America " first.

Notice the same media organizations that called the President's walk to St John's Church a photo op refuse to label this stunt the same!


The headline from ABC News: “Congressional Democrats take a knee as they observe a nearly nine minute moment of silence for George Floyd at Emancipation Hall at the U.S. Capitol.”

Here, of course, Pelosi is actually staging a photo op and the media praises her!

The best part wasn't seen - Pelosi trying to stand up after the kneel:

That statement contains two myths - peaceful protesters and gas.  The protesters who were moved from H street to I street were asked 3 times to move. Instead of compliance, they stood their ground and pelted police with projectiles. Pepper ball was used to move the unruly non-peaceful protesters. The decision to move them was made long before the President decided to take back the historic Church which was burned the night before by your peaceful protesters!

There were people there who did see the projectiles thrown. The AG was one of them.

False - Tear gas was not used:

"In a statement released Tuesday by the USPP, the law enforcement agency said “no tear gas was used” when clearing a large group of protestors from the area. The USPP said it took the steps “to curtail the violence that was underway,” pushing back against claims that the protest was entirely peaceful."

So have I from which includes a Timeline narrated by WaPo, and we know how much THEY love Trump!  Even they couched their narrative with " mainly peaceful protestors " all while noting that the park where the church sits had already been closed off long before they started congregating there . Even though WaPo claims the announcement to clear the area was unintelligible, I could understand it on the video. So we have people ordered to leave the area who even WaPo admits were throwing things at the police, and you expect them to kiss the protestors asses??? Might want to look at how many were injured on both sides of that ordeal and get back to us....

Tissue = Kleenex

pepper spray (organic) = tear gas (chemical compound)

U.S. Park Police says officers used “pepper balls,” not “tear gas.” It’s true pepper balls, which contain a pepper spray-like irritant, have a different makeup than another chemical typical referred to as “tear gas” (and which USPP specifically says it didn’t use). But some sources consider pepper spray a type of tear gas, while others say both chemicals have the same effect on people.

According to the Scientific American and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention , pepper spray is a type of “tear gas” or “riot control agent.”

Dr. Ranit Mishori , senior medical adviser for Physicians for Human Rights and a Georgetown University professor of family medicine, told us in an email: “Tear gas and pepper spray both belong to a class of crowd-control weapons known as chemical irritants.” The chemical makeup is different, but the impact on people is similar. “During a protest, it is impossible to tell what chemical is being used as the clinical manifestations are the same.”

If you're referring to my comment to jungkoservative, and I think you are since you gave his racists comment a thumbs up, your comment is a damn lie. Anyone with a brain can read my comment and see that it's quite clear that I told him that he and his ancestors could go back to where they came from after his racist comment about some Americans.

All this residency shaming is much to do about nothing imo and nothing positive comes from it.   I'm about 16th generation American on my mothers side.   Those ancestors were here long before we because the USA.

Does that make me more "American" than a first generation American?   Respect to the first people in America but not in my opinion.   It's not about how long your people have been here imo but what you've done with it in that time.

I watch the rioters and looters of recent times and for the most part, i see only people who piss, moan and take from others in their short time here.   I weep for my country if this is the future of it.

First of all to you. I apologize for misreading your post and screwing up the "leave" part. Second, your comment was NOT in reply to jung you just posted in general. Thus, the confusion (mostly I guess on my part). Third, if you read the post I responded to, the statement was to the affect that all life migrated from Africa. And if I remember correctly, the American Indian crossed what is now the Bering Strait when in the time the lands connected. So I took you literally to mean the beginning of time. I know how things work here and everyone takes what people type at face value and NOT some metaphorical reason. And I didn't take that comment of his as racist. When you reply without specifying whom you are addressing and are not the seeder as he was not, it's difficult at times to know

And thank you for your service. Sincerely.

And to you Perrie, if he meant 1000's of years, he possibly should have stated as such. You know as well as I do people here take things literally.........especially when it suits an agenda.

Sorry for the mix up to you both.

My comment was directed to jungkonservative. Yes, one theory is that we came across the Bering Strait more than 16,000 years ago with the lastest confirmed find. So we are the first people on this continent. 

Sorry that I didn't respond directly to jungkonservative, as I thought that I had.

Sparty,

It wasn't our people doing that. Our people were protecting their homes. And Indians have been defending this country for over a century now. What is at issue here is respect. Something we all want but not all of us get. Look I "pass" as white, but my kids, due to how genetics work, look something more akin to Indian than I do. They were told in college that they were not white as if that made a difference, and it shouldn't. Right? But here we are, at some sort of weird crossroads. 

I am heartbroken for my country, but I also look at the world at large and realize that there has to be a bigger problem than we are admitting to. Until we can recognize that, then things will never change. I have no answers. I can only give observations.

I never even implied that. Of course, you are American. I'm not judging you. I just don't want to be judged either (and no I was not saying that you were, I am just talking in general). 

For me, it was just shocking that my children were. And shocking to them, too. That there are people out there who would make that kind of judgment and at one of our best universities. But bigots are out there, and to deny that, it to deny a truth. And yes I know it goes both ways. I faced off with bigots as a teacher, too. I have to tell ya, it's ironic being called "cracker" when you are an Indian.

There was a GOFUNDME set up for George Floyd that took in over $13 million so I don't think anybody is worried about paying for this.  Not to mention there are probably a lot of Democrat politicians that are pushing to help pay for things and as it fits in with the narrative the public broadcast is probably free for them as it's being covered as news.

Kente, known as nwentoma in Akan, is an indigenous Ghanaian textile, made of interwoven cloth strips of silk and cotton. Kente is made in Akan lands, in Ghana, from the historic Ashanti Kingdom, including the towns of Bonwire, Adanwomase, Sakora Wonoo, and Ntonso in the Kwabre areas of the Ashanti Region. This fabric is worn by almost every Ghanaian tribe and represents national cultural identity. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kente_cloth

So were they representing Ghana's national cultural identity or virtue signaling? I'll take virtue signaling for a 1,000 Alex.

Me too ! 

Loved when Morgan said ….. "I don't want it" (ref. Black History Month) !

"Black" history is "American" history !

Mike doesn't want a "Jewish History Month" either.

Most will get it, the "forever race baiting" minority won't !

Well, i'm pretty much 1/4 English, 1/4 German and 1/2 Slovak so i want one week English history month and a one week German history month and a two week Slovak history month.  

That said i'm pretty sure some of my ancestors, who came over shortly after the original pilgrims, were some naughty boys so my guess is i might need to break up that English week into Native American as well but they probably already have their month so we are good to go regardless .....

Some people "Got It', Some People "Don't" ! That's "LIFE" !

"Race Baiters" are the biggest problem !

More folks understand things, than these "Protestors" and "Media Outlets" make it out to be.

"Ease" is a greater threat to progress than "Hardship" !

And so it begins,  This guy is smart for getting out, the stupid retards that run this city would have probably raised his taxes to pay for their incompetence! I hope everybody moves out and leaves this shithole to rot.

The "Left" will blame the elite for their city going to pot because that elite went elsewhere.

Nancy thought

That's the problem.  She (tried) to think.  Reality of it is she hasn't had an original though since Adams was President.

Consider where she is elected.   One of the most liberal districts in the USA.   A district that has highly paid municipal employees whose only function is to power wash human excrement off the sidewalks and city streets.

Yeah baby .... the American dream in Nancyland.   Human turd sprayer.  

Good times!

Yeah, it's pandering. It's cultural appropriation. It's also kinda racist. 

I'd just chalk it up to "more bullshit that politicians routinely do for votes." The frustrating part is the hypocrites who see it as a good thing while condemning much weaker nonsense in their political opponents.

"Kinda racist"?  If it were the bottom feeders wearing it, it would be called racist from the start.

I admit I am hesitant to just straight out call people racist, but this is pretty bad. This African garment is supposed to have meaning for Americans - who have never been anywhere near Africa - because they have black skin? Just for that simple reason?

That's like the very definition of racism, isn't it? How does this go right over their heads or the heads of their devoted media?
