Black conservative activist Candace Owens is going all-in on her “Blexit” campaign this weekend, hoping to encourage blacks to exit the Democratic Party.
Ms. Owens, who has been praised by name by President Trump and been a guest host for Fox News, used this weekend’s Young Black Leadership Summit to push the “Blexit” slogan for ending African-Americans’ near-monolithic support for the Democrats.
“There is no group in America that has been more lied to, more abused, or more taken advantage of by the Democrats than black people. At long last, we can return the favor by ENDING their stranglehold on our votes. Support the #BLEXIT today, Patriots!” Ms. Owens, who is communications director for Turning Point USA, wrote in one of several tweets Sunday.
