Black conservative analyst Candance Owens recently shared her belief that Black people are not impacted by the increase of white supremacy that plagues the country.
It was during a recent congressional hearing titled “Confronting White Supremacy,” where Owens argued that Black people are not affected by racism, Rolling Out reports.
“Based on the hierarchy of what’s impacting minority Americans, if I had to make a list of 100 things, White nationalism would not make the list,” Owens said during a House Oversight Joint Subcommittee hearing. “We don’t see hearings on those bigger issues … Black-on-Black crime. The breakdown of [the] family, I think, is the number one thing that’s contributing to that. We never hear anybody talking about what happens when you remove a father from the home.”
Owens instead shared her claim that Black-on-Black crime is a more pressing issue in America than white supremacy.
“I would argue that right now, we have a social environment that is hostile toward men and does not inspire masculinity or being a man and what it means to be a father figure in the household,” she said. “Black-on-Black crime is a huge issue in America right now, but people don’t like to talk about that.”
Owens has gained notoriety over the years through her support of Donald Trump and her conservative beliefs. The former liberal has gained a larger standing within right-wing political circles through her support of the president and his controversial rhetorics.
However, despite her claims, a few days later the DHS rules white supremacy as a national threat. She most recently got read to filth by rapper T.I. at the Revolt Conference in Atlanta.
