Everyone is aware of this story by now I'm sure. While trying to pander to black voters in a staged photo op (remember how bad those are?) Democrats famously wore African garb that's associated with a tribe that practiced the slave trade.



Naturally, by the left's rules, this means that Pelosi et al. support slavery. Hey, this is the world ya'll created. No sense crying about it now.

Anyway, in this USA Today article they actually try to defend the dumbass Democrats who wore this thing by saying this (emphasis added):


"In the Facebook post, Brandon acknowledges kente cloth’s historical ties to the slave trade; however, he ignores the broader cultural significance the cloth has to West African and African American culture."


Oh, so if something has some cultural significance besides its ties to slavery, it's okay now? What else might that apply to?



The hypocrisy and lack of self-awareness would be shocking if it wasn't so predictable.

Neck Ties are part of European Culture. Is anyone stopping you from wearing a Neck Tie ?

Trump wears one often.

Nothing to see here.

Broader cultural significance like, maybe, states rights? I've always wondered why people hated the South for buying slaves that were captured and sold by Africa, after Africa offered those slaves. Only a fool would judge a man from 1800 by the standards of 2020. But of course the left tries to pander to blacks by wearing slave trader cloth and that's fine.

What's so hard about an unbiased news report? If the news would drop their bias, the democrats would sink faster than a boulder. News is the only lifeline the democrats have left.

Lay some facts on me. Expose this for not being what it's appearing to be. Are those scarves displaying the colors of a tribe known for slave trading or not?

One of my favorites is how the UK pretends they're better than us because of slavery, as if the subjects in their colonies were free people. Also as if they didn't have huge economic ties to the Confederate States, including most of the industries that used slaves.

Do you honestly take no issue with wearing the cloth of slave traders? People who would busted into tribes of Africans, bound their people, tied them to logs, and made them walk miles and miles to their final destination before being shipped off? You think wearing a cloth representing that is fine?

The fact is that if this excuse is good enough for Democrats to wear that cloth, the same excuse would be good enough for Southerners to fly the Confederate flag to celebrate their cultural heritage.

Keep twisting yourself into a pretzel to avoid admitting this is a gigantic double standard.
You're just further illustrating my point.

The British don't go around spouting off that " We are the greatest country in the world ", which appears to be an American trait.

We don't actually see controversy in her wearing it. That's the problem. The people who should because they see controversy in every single thing are making excuses for her because she's a Democrat. Again, keep illustrating the point. I appreciate the help.

\I see facts and an epic fail on your part. But the view from here may not be as good as it seems. Again, the thread is about idiot democrats pandering to BLM by wearing "African" scarves. They didn't bother to check the history of those particular colors. It seems they represent a tribe that traded slaves they captured from other parts of Africa.

Now, if any of that is incorrect, you let us all know, so we aren't propagating a lie. But if all that is correct, then your posts here begin to look more and more pathetic.

Any country where the populace willingly consumes jellied eels can never be the greatest country in the world.

The Scots where slave traders also. How about Scottish=Americans who wear The Kilt as part of their heritage. Have you got an issue with that also ?
