U.S. Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) appeared on the Senate floor wearing a denim vest and outrage followed on social media, with many Twitter users noting how people of color would never get away with such a wardrobe in a professional setting. 

Political commentator Ana Navarro-Cárdenas was among the many people who became furious after seeing the senator's casual outfit.

"I really don’t care who gets triggered by me bringing race into this," Navarro-Cárdenas tweeted. "The truth is, no woman of color could possibly dress like this, and act like this, and be taken seriously, much less elected. I suspect every Black woman and Latina reading this knows what I’m talking about."
