Democrats face backlash after wearing Kente cloth while kneeling for Floyd

Democratic congressmen have faced a backlash after wearing shawls made from an African textile to mark the death of Floyd. The sartorial statement drew criticism from observers who felt they made the traditional textile into a political prop. ’My ancestors did not invent Kente cloth for them to be worn by publicity (obsessed) politicians as ’activism’ in 2020,’ Jade Bentil, a researcher, tweeted.

Ever stop to ask if it was the congressional black caucus who requested they all wear it... It will be legislation done by legislators to put laws into place that give sharks teeth to equality n justice for all.... And could be black caucuses wanted to extend the cloth as a show of a sacred bond to get it done... No more bs n crap....

Cultural appropriation should not be a thing. Sharing and copying is inherent in human traits. Culture, language, values, etc are all either shared or copied and that's not a bad thing.
