Candace Owens officially launched the Blexit Campaign Saturday at the TPUSA Black Leadership Conference in Washington DC. “For decades, the black community has been in an emotionally abusive relationship with the Democrat Party” — Today that all changed.
Several hundred black youth leaders met in Washington DC for the inaugural conference this weekend. The group was invited Friday to the Trump White House where President Trump spoke to the gathering.
As Written By Breitbart:
“For decades, the black community has been in an emotionally abusive relationship with the Democrat Party. Our fidelity to leftist politicians coupled with our false belief that a larger government might facilitate solutions, has led to the overall collapse of our families, neighborhoods, and incidentally, our futures.
BLEXIT is a national movement of minorities that have awakened to the truth. It is for those who have taken an objective look at our decades-long allegiance to the left and asked ourselves “what do we have to show for it?”
The media has betrayed our focus. They have learned the value of our untethered emotionality and have chosen to emphasize certain topics in an effort to suspend our rational thinking. This is why in 2016, the 16 unarmed black men shot and killed by police officers took headline-precedent over the approximate 330,000 black babies aborted each year.
This is why the topic of illegal alien children being separated at the border earned excessive coverage, while the 70% black single motherhood rate — a tragedy encouraged by our government welfare programs — is ignored.”
