CANDACE OWENS, A FIREBRAND AND FREE THINKER

on

VICTIM MENTALITY VERSUS VICTOR MENTALITY

Candace Owens *, the beautiful young Conservative that is taking the media & the internet by storm, has gob smacked Liberals who just can’t stand an independent black voice.

Democrats think black Americans should not think for themselves.  Black Americans should bow and scrape to the Democrat party, ignoring how little the Dems have actually done for them.

Owens wants black people to embrace a victor mentality instead of a victim mentality, so Liberals are out to assassinate her character.

RED PILL BLACK

Candace created a YouTube site she calls Red Pill Black, named after the movie “The Matrix,” wherein swallowing a red pill reveals the truth and downing a blue pill leaves you trapped in illusion.

The colors are telling.  Red is identified with the Republican party and blue is identified with the Democrat party.  In the parlance of some political activists, “taking the red pill” means seeing the lies of Mainstream Media & Liberals, and learning the truth.

OWENS HAD A DIFFERENT TAKE ON CHARLOTTESVILLE

Her internet videos sometimes reach 10 million people.  Owens released the first one shortly after a man at a Charlottesville, Virginia rally drove his car into a crowd of protesters, killing a (white) woman.

At that time, media coverage of racism was everywhere.  Cable news talked about “America’s lack of racial progress” despite the fact that a black couple had just spent eight years in the White House.  MSM was spreading a false narrative about threats to minorities posed by “white nationalists.”

RACE-BAITING IS BIG BUSINESS:  

OWENS SAYS KKK IS ENDANGERED SPECIES

“CNN was trying to sell to me, as a black person, that the KKK was alive and well,” Owens added.  “That was ridiculous.”

In one video, she sarcastically shouts, “OMG, Charlottesville!  White supremacy is alive and well!”  Then she goes on to argue, “Black people have scarier things on the horizon than the almost-endangered species of white supremacy.”

Owens also objects to the way the media covers police brutality.  It leads some people to believe that the biggest threat to young blacks is the police, Owens said.

“Fact No. 1: Approximately 93 percent of black homicide victims are killed by other black people,” she says.  A reporter pushed back, pointing out that there still is plenty of racism, and some innocent people have been tortured by police.

“That’s absolutely right.  Some innocent people have also been struck by lightning.  Sixteen unarmed black men were killed by police officers in 2016.  If you are watching CNN you would’ve thought it happened every single day.  OK?  That’s a problem.”

Owens correctly states that thousands of young black men were killed by other black men, whereas “16 represents .00004 percent of the black community.”

DEPENDENCE ON GOVERNMENT IS BIGGEST PROBLEM

Media coverage of Black Lives Matter, she says, also creates a distorted picture of what’s going on.  “Black Lives Matter actually resulted in more black deaths across the country, because police officers don’t want to answer the call.”

But Owens’ main argument is that the media mislead the public.  The biggest issue facing blacks today is not racism or police shootings, she says, but dependence on government that began 50 years ago with Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society” programs.  “They incentivized mothers not to marry fathers.  That’s why single motherhood is up.  The government would give you more if you didn’t marry him.”

That’s a fairly common view among conservatives, but among blacks, says Owens, it’s easier to tell your family you’re gay than to reveal that you’re a conservative.

“My entire family’s on welfare, save a couple people.  What (welfare) does is essentially offer you some money and then say, ‘Whenever you work, you don’t make enough, so we’re gonna give you this much money on top of that.’”  As a result, she says people think, “I don’t want to make more because the government is already giving me $500 that I don’t want to lose.”

BLACKS ARE EXCITED

“What people don’t understand,” though, Owens says, “is how many black people are excited about what I’m doing  .  .  .  how many are very aware that they have been duped by the left.”

Having an edgy sense of humor is one way Owens does it.  So is knowing history and literature better than her critics.

“You can feel free to call me an Uncle Tom.  You can feel free to call me an Auntie Tom.  It does not affect me,” she says.  “Do you want to know why? Because I actually read the book.  Uncle Tom was the hero.”

PRESIDENT OBAMA DAMAGED RACE RELATIONS

Candace Owens blasted former President Barack Obama, saying that he caused damage to race relations in the United States during his two terms in office.  “Hillary didn’t help much when she kept calling everybody racist and sexist, so the language has changed and the rhetoric has changed,” Owens said.

“It’s been so black and white, the conversation, and I blame Obama,” Owens said on “Fox & Friends” recently“His eight years in office did a lot of damage in terms of race relations in this country.”

“I mean it’s absolute disaster, and they make these false promises. They secure our vote with all these false promises, and the second they get in to the White House, they do absolutely nothing for African-Americans but make sure we remember that we are black so they can play the same identity card the next election cycle.”

WHITE HOUSE SUMMIT ON RACE

Owens supports a potential White House summit on race relations to which Kanye West could be invited.  White House adviser and Pastor Dr. Darrell Scott said on Saturday that President Trump is on board to host the rapper if a summit were to take place.

“The African-American community is not against the president,” Scott said.  “I’m very optimistic about this leading to the healing of this racial divide.”

About Diane L. Gruber

I am a proud American who is tired of biting my tongue for fear of making a Liberal mad; for fear of being called racist because I believe in the Rule of Law; for fear of damaging my license to practice law. NO MORE!!!! Conservative-minded citizens have stayed silent for decades while Liberals have caused significant damage to American culture and to our nation.

I lived in a Third-World Dictatorship. Generation after generation had been trained to kow tow to the government. They were afraid to discuss ANYTHING about the government even in the privacy of their own homes. My “Time” magazine arrived with articles cut out, after the censors got through checking it for heresy. With Political Correctness and “hate speech” rules, we are already halfway to officially losing our precious Freedom of Speech.

If we want anything of value to remain for future generations we need to act now, rally in the streets now, speak out now. Don’t be cowed.
