Candace Owens Thinks Racism Is ‘Over’ Because She Has ‘Never Been a Slave’

Candace Owens Thinks Racism Is ‘Over’ Because She Has ‘Never Been a Slave’

Just when you thought the rhetoric spewed by conservative pundit and token “Trump-loving” black woman Candace Owens couldn’t get any worse, she had a veritable “hold my beer” moment during the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Friday when she said racism doesn’t exist in America because she herself has never been a slave.

No, this is not a joke.

In a video shared by The Daily...

Candace Owens Was Named in the New Zealand Shooter's Alleged Manifesto. But Christchurch Is Bigger Than Her

Candace Owens Was Named in the New Zealand Shooter's Alleged Manifesto. But Christchurch Is Bigger Than Her

Every time I write about Candace Owens, I feel manipulated.

I feel manipulated because Candace Owens, on her own, is not newsworthy. She’s not witty or particularly charismatic. She’s billed as a commentator and activist, but to describe her grasp on politics, history, gender, or race as shallow would be doing a great disservice to the word, because shallow still has depth. Activism implies,...

Auntie Ruckus on Ilhan Omar: 'Wouldn't it Be Funny if Trump Just Deported Her?'

Auntie Ruckus on Ilhan Omar: 'Wouldn't it Be Funny if Trump Just Deported Her?'

I don’t know what well of resilience Rep. Ilhan Omar has been drawing from, but between the deluge of brazen Islamophobia she’s had to endure as of late, and whatever bigotry I’m sure she’s experienced over the course of her life beforehand, I don’t know how much more one person can take.

We previously reported on the heat that the Somali-born, Minnesota representative caught for lending...

Candace Owens Is Racist White America’s Black Friend and She Just Told Congress That White Nationalism Isn’t a Thing

Candace Owens Is Racist White America’s Black Friend and She Just Told Congress That White Nationalism Isn’t a Thing

Unfortunately for the world, Candace Owens is a thing.

I want her not to be a thing, or, even better, a thing of the past like Furbys and AOL Instant Messenger.

Yet, here we are talking about Candace Owens because she is trotted out by the far-right whenever there is a discussion on white nationalism because Candace Owens is the black person that all racists are talking about when they say they...

Countdown to Candace Owens: Auntie Ruckus Will Participate in Hearing on Hate Crimes, White Nationalism

Countdown to Candace Owens: Auntie Ruckus Will Participate in Hearing on Hate Crimes, White Nationalism

Days removed from affirming that it’s “more difficult today to come out as a conservative than it is to come out as gay,” the “nigga” we love to hate—provocateur du jour Candace Owens—will be bringing her world-famous, traveling minstrel show to the House Judiciary Committee next week during a hearing on hate crimes and white nationalism.

As the only black girl with no magic, the conservative...

Candace Owens Came for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Quickly Realized She Wasn't Ready

Candace Owens is unremarkable.

In fact, she’s known for being the fourth-most famous black woman who supports President Trump.

As it stands, that list includes such mega famous stars as:

1. Diamond

2. Silk

3. Omarosa Manigault Foster Johnson Livingstone Williams Sonoma

and then....

4. Candace Owens

Kanye West's Pro-Republican 'Blexit' T-Shirts Call for Black Exodus From Democratic Party

If you’re a black person who likes hanging out with racists, you have some new fashion choices that don’t include pairing running shoes with Dockers, All Lives Matter haircuts or tucking a polo shirt into your jeans. Kanye West lent his creative skills to Candace Owen when he designed a T-shirt line for the conservative negro darling’s new website dedicated to luring black people away from...

Candace Owens Gets Dragged for Politicizing the Death of an Iowa College Student

Candace Owens Gets Dragged for Politicizing the Death of an Iowa College Student

How would you feel if a member of your family was killed, and in the aftermath of their death, everyone from the White House to Sarah Huckabee Sanders, to even GOP talking heads used them as a talking point—an afterthought—in the ongoing debate about immigration in this country?

This is exactly what has happened to the family of Mollie Tibbetts—the 20-year-old University of Iowa student who...

Kanye's Conservative BFF, Candace Owens, Was Harassed at a Coffee Shop, Claims Racism

Kanye's Conservative BFF, Candace Owens, Was Harassed at a Coffee Shop, Claims Racism

I cover politics for The Root. Every day, I look into the ongoings of one of the worst administrations to ever do it. I’m fully aware of Candace Owens and was amused when Kanye West began lauding her as a free-thinker. I’ve seen Candace Owens frequently on political talk shows as she’s become the go-to black conservative to call when Paris Dennard is busy working the fields for the Trump...

Your Girl Candace Owens Ran a Trump-Bashing Website Less Than 2 Years Ago. Color Us Shocked

A recent report from BuzzFeed sheds new light on Candace Owens, the melanated darling du jour of the “Make America great again” crowd, revealing that the rising conservative star ran a blog that frequently mocked Donald Trump throughout the 2016 presidential campaign.

Among the stories that ran on the site: A critical look at Trump’s Muslim ban titled, “Serious Question: Is Donald Trump a...

Judge of Characters: Kanye West Doesn’t Care About Racism

Judge of Characters: Kanye West Doesn’t Care About Racism

This has been a very hard week to swallow, namely because of rapper and former black man Kanye West. Kim Kardashian’s doting husband has been known for his sporadic rants, but this time (like many times before) he took to Twitter to share whatever thoughts were running through his brain.

Clearly, the sunken place has Wi-Fi now, because Yeezy’s tweet storm has been a nonstop flow of...

Kanye’s Politics Are What Happens When You Don’t Read Books

As someone who still owns land on Yeezy Island, I was anxious when Kanye West made his return to Twitter a couple weeks ago. Because as those who haven’t yet sold their Yeezy properties know, every time he opens his mouth, property values plummet. So imagine my pleasant surprise when I saw that his subject matter was limited to new age self-help quotes and his postapocalyptic fashion.

“Hmm,” I...

Candace Owens, Who Thinks Racism Is All in the Past, Got Paid After Suing Over Racist Attacks

Candace Owens, Who Thinks Racism Is All in the Past, Got Paid After Suing Over Racist Attacks

Candace Owens, Kanye West’s new bestie , claims that racism is no longer an issue—was that before or after her family won a lawsuit for $37,500 from the Stamford (Conn.) Board of Education as a result of racism? Perhaps the board should ask for a refund.

In 2016, Owens wrote an open letter to the Stamford Advocate sharing how racial slurs and death threats from classmates drove her to an...

Kanye West, Candace Owens and the Conservative Sunken Place

Kanye West, Candace Owens and the Conservative Sunken Place

As an underage college freshman, I was forced to live in an off-campus dormitory with adult supervision. Although I was one of only two black residents in the housing unit, one of the selling points of living in this dorm was their monthly offerings of entertainment as an alternative to college drunkfests.

In one particular month, the building’s entertainment committee booked a...
