I first heard of Candace Owens via YouTube on her channel RedPillBlack. She was the talk of black Twitter and YouTube, and the collective was outraged that this black woman had the plumb nerve to step out of line and have an opinion divergent from the Democratic party line.
She was pithy, irreverent, bright and obviously gorgeous. She had the attention (and the gaze) of conservative men of all races who were shocked that she had some unpopular opinions about Black Lives Matter, modern-day feminists and that she held many of their values.
Conservatives do love their eye candy, and Candace seems to be the “black Tomi Loren,” despite them both quibbling on Twitter at the moment over Kanye. I’m kind of confused by her adoration of him though. He’s a savant–really good at one thing, and a complete moron in all others.
Ms. Owens the Contrarian has horrified the black collective while catipulting her unusual perspective into fame and a prominent job as Communications Director for a conservative organization. She is chummy with the likes of both Justin Beiber and that crazy guy from Info Wars. She thinks Donald Trump is a savior to humanity. ????????Think she’s a sellout bedwench and agent for white supremacy? She could care not one single feck.
I don’t agree with a lot of what Ms. Owens says, but I love that she’s bucking the crippling community pressure to conform to the playbook. I relish that a gorgeous black woman is part telling the Democratic party NOT to assume OUR support is a foregone conclusion.
She using her brains and beauty to define her version of winning, and there’s something to be said about that. At only 28, Candace Owens came out of nowhere, and now she’s speaking at national conventions and is making international news. The world is her oyster, and if we’re really going to be about the empowerment of black women to have the freedom to split from the collective to find their own way, we should extend our nod to the direction she’s going. If we want to be viewed as individuals, we’re going to have to allow that for other black women, even if we don’t agree with them 100%.
For example, I like what she’s saying here…
Make no mistake, we are on the brink of a cultural revolution. Many liberals and conservatives alike do not want that. Entire brands have been built upon division, and will fall apart if we reach a state of unity. #AmericaFirst #FreeThinker

But I’m side-eyeing the heck out of her she’s next to here…
It was an absolute honor to speak in front of the RNC today down in Miami. @DonaldJTrumpJr @charliekirk11 pic.twitter.com/sN7xdO0Ktv
