In New York, a Bookshop was spotted displaying a frame with the inscription: "Writers From Shiithole Countries" on a Table full of Books Written by Africans

In an apparent display of pride and disgust towards President Donald Trump's shiithole comment against Africans, a bookshop in New York City was reportedly sported conspicuously displaying a frame with the inscription "Writers From Shiithole Countries" on a Table full of Books Written by Africans. The table hosts books written by notable African penners such as Nelson Mandela, Chigozie Obioma, Helen Oyeyemi, and  Uzodimma Iweala. Also spotted on the table is a book written by Pakistani teenage activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Malala Yusufzai. 
It could be recalled that Trump had refered to African countries as  "shiithole countries". His comment has attracted condemnation from across the globe with the African Union demanding immediate apology.
