A former national surrogate for Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., ripped into white congressional Democrats on Monday after they wore African-patterned garb and knelt in a demonstration against racism and police brutality.
"I still cant wrap my mind around the fact that they draped these white people in kente cloth to 'honor' him. This has to be hell," author Frederick Joseph tweeted, also arguing that black Americans are "being pandered to, and ultimately, disrespected."
In a tweet thread, he argued that Democrats were failing in their attempts to be helpful amid ongoing strife surrounding George Floyd's death.
He specifically took aim at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., who joined other Democrats in kneeling inside of the Capitol Visitor Center on Thursday. Democratic members of both the House and Senate knelt for 8 minutes and 46 seconds to honor Floyd, representing the amount of time he was pinned down by former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin.
"This is a mess," Joseph said in one tweet. In another, he added: "If anyone cant understand why Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and them dressed up like theyre trying to sneak into Wakanda is disrespectful and appropriative you have a great deal to learn." Wakanda is the fictional land in Africa associated with the Marvel superhero Black Panther.

George Floyd was American, not sure if he had Ashanti roots or not, but it’s just weird.
“Wakanda is the fictional land in Africa...”
Wait—it’s not real? Don Lemon just sold me some property there!
Who helped them get on one knee?
Just think... if ONE Dem had decided not to do that and stuck with it, not decided to lock-step, that person would now be hailed by the left and right as having done the correct thing and the next few news cycles would be about them.
I guess if George Floyd was German theyd all be wearing lederhosen.
nancy couldnt get back up and was stranded for a minute before someone helped her
I was just listening to Levin on the radio and he was reading stats:
People killed by police each year
50% are white
26% are black
17% are Hispanic
No mention of Asians, but he went on how this is all ignored by the media and all the celebrities who are currently falling all over themselves pushing BLM. Then he asked “where do they live? Do they live in black neighborhoods? Why not? Isn’t that racist?”
If this is the same Frederick Joseph who did the Black Panther Challenge then these Dems are really getting bit in the butt.
And, once again, my eyes dart up to see if this is from the Babylon Bee. Nope!
That is too funny. They are so earnest trying to apply a completely incoherent set of PC rules.
...now if they wore an Indian headdress, everything would be fine...
Kneel in slavery?
Free men never shall be slaves.

Did he have stats on people whose hearts explode from meth and fentanyl while being arrested?
White paternalism is white supremacy.
Dhimmitude: Very effective Islamic method of making their opposition SUBMIT!
“dhimmitude ... represents a behavior dictated by fear (terrorism), pacifism when aggressed, rather than resistance, servility because of cowardice and vulnerability. ... By their peaceful surrender to the Islamic army, they obtained the security for their life, belongings and religion, but they had to accept a condition of inferiority, spoliation and humiliation. As they were forbidden to possess weapons and give testimony against a Muslim, they were put in a position of vulnerability and humility.”
Is that Obama standing on the pedestal behind them?
