Black Caucus Members Protest Trump at SOTU with Solidarity African Scarves

Members of the Congressional Black Caucus Wear Congressional Scarves during SOTU in Solidarity supporting Africa against Trump's s**hole remarks.

WASHINGTON - Jan. 30, 2018 - eTradeWire -- During President Donald Trump's first State Of The Union Address to the nation,members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) will be adorned in a Congressional Solidarity Scarf.  The scarf worn represents a show of unity and support for the Continent of Africa, the countries of Latin America, the Caribbean and people of color throughout the Diaspora.

President Trump has been openly offending groups of people - particularly people of color - since the early days of his electoral campaign.  As President, he has shown no sign of changing his rhetoric. A growing number of people - of all colors - now consider Mr. Trump as insensitive, prejudiced, racist, sexist and xenophobic. As evidence of their assessments, one need only reference the President's past behaviors: leading the birther movement against President Obama; accusing many Mexican immigrants of being "rapists"; calling for the "shutdown of Muslims entering the United States"; referencing racist protest marchers as "very fine people"; claiming Nigerians will never "go back to their huts" and that "all Haitian immigrants have AIDS". Incredibly, this kind of vitriol represents only a partial list of Mr. Trump's insults and racist remarks and the U.S. Congressional Black Caucus is proudly standing in opposition to what his invective represents.
