Candace Owens believes celebrating and giving back to the Black community is equivalent to “segregation.”
Netflix, Uber, and other companies have been doing their part to shine a light on the Black community’s businesses, films, and projects in an attempt to celebrate a community that is often looked over, neglected, and abused. In Owen’s opinion, celebrating Black film and TV, as well as highlighting Black-owned restaurants on Uber Eats is nothing more than “segregation.”
On Twitter, the 31-year-old wrote, Netflix now has a category for ‘black cinema.’” Then she wrote, “Uber Eats now has a category for ‘black restaurants.’ The Left has reintroduced segregation back into American society under the guise of progressivism — they used #BLM propaganda to anger black people to the point of blindness.”
She then claimed that Democrats have exchanged “segregation” for “black empowerment.” Owens said these changes wouldn’t be the end of Democrats’ alleged grand scheme. “Keep believing evil white conservatives want to bring harm to you while the actual evil white racist progressives continue to destroy your life.”
It didn’t take long for people to clap back at her, calling her ignorance and blatant disregard for how white privilege and white representation has dominated all forms of mainstream media, the New York Post reports.
“Seriously, what kind of weird, ‘I just want to be white so bad’ UGG boot-licking s – – t is this?” wrote the Root, adding that “In 2021, no one should still need to point out that currently and for all of American history, white people have enjoyed overwhelming representation in nearly every aspect of our popular culture (TV, film, literature, broadcasting, etc.), and they represent the vast majority of the country’s successful business owners.”
Now, pandering and performative, we’ve heard. But, segregation? All right now, what do you all think? Did she make any points?
Netflix now has a category for “black cinema”.
Uber Eats now has a category for “black restaurants”.
The Left has reintroduced segregation back into American society under the guise of progressivism— they used #BLM propaganda to anger black people to the point of blindness.
