Black U.S Lawmakers Wear Kente During State of the Union Address To Protest Donald Trump's 'Sh*thole' Remarks

A group of African American U.S lawmakers attended President Trump’s State of the Union speech draped in Kente cloth from our very own Ghana to protest.
The legislators from the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), wore the ‘African’ attire to protest Trump’s characterization of the entire continent as a sh*thole.
Trump delivered his second State of the Union since taking office on Tuesday, a speech in which he touted the economic success of his first year in office so far.
However, the CBC, a group of black lawmakers, used the speech to make their protest heard.

“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 (D-Va), tweeted before the speech.
