Kanye West has teamed up with Candace Owens to design merch for her newly launched Blexit campaign, a movement set on getting Black people to disassociate themselves from the Democratic party.
Owens announced the launch of the campaign at the Young Black Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C. to a motivated crowd of attendees. “A movement called Blexit, the Black exit from the Democrat Party,” stated Owens, “the Black exit from permanent victimhood, the Black exit from the false idea that we are somehow separate from the rest of America.”
She noted that campaign merch for the movement has been designed by the one and only Kanye West. The collection consists of long-sleeve and short-sleeve pastel shirts and a hat. The design names bear slogans like “We Free,” “The Standard” and “The People.” Prices range from $25-$28.
According to the Blexit website, “BLEXIT is a frequency for those who have released themselves from the political orthodoxy. It is a rebellion led by Americans wishing to disrupt the simulation of fear. BLEXIT is a renaissance. It is our formal declaration of independence. BLEXIT is fueled by individuals who are questioning political dogma and choosing freedom over tyranny.”
