Kanye West designs shirts urging ‘Blexit’ from Democratic Party
The branded merchandise was unveiled at the Turning Point USA’s Young Black Leadership Summit (TPUSA), a meeting of young black conservatives held in Washington on Saturday. The shirts feature the word ‘Blexit’ and ‘We free’ slogan'.
“Blexit is a renaissance and I am blessed to say that this logo, these colors, were created by my dear friend and fellow superhero Kanye West,” TPUSA’s Communications Director Candace Owens told Page Six.
Next year, the Blexit movement will hold rallies “in every major city in America that the Democrats have destroyed,” Owens announced. While West was not present at the event, he was there “in spirit,” according to her.
Kanye West is making "Blexit" merch to encourage a black exit from the Democratic Party. What he actually seems to be encouraging is acceptance of the Republican Party's decades-long racist effort to silence black voices via mass incarceration, voter suppression & gerrymandering.— Adam Best (@adamcbest) October 28, 2018
Apart from clothing, the Blexit.com website was launched, featuring stories of the black defectors from the Democratic Party. Owens herself has left the Democrats, urging other black Americans to follow suit and get rid of the “hamster mentality” that the party is somehow by default the only good one for black people.
The Blexit clothing surely goes well with the red MAGA hats, since Kanye West is a prominent supporter of US President Donald Trump. The two recently met in the White House, with the rapper giving one of the most fiery and slur-ridden speeches the US President’s office has ever seen.
