With controversy surrounding Candace Owens right now and her statements about Adolf Hitler played on Capitol Hill, it’s probably not the right time to post an old quote of hers. But we don’t let the news cycle determine out path at NOQ Report and the truth is the truth regardless of whether or not someone is trending on Twitter.
One thing is clear – race relations in America, which were showing great progress from the mid-80s until the mid-00s, have been in a stead state of decline over the last decade. While most on the left point to President Trump, it’s important to remember how the current race challenges came into being in the first place. During the reign of President Obama, race relations took a major turn for the worse. It was during this time that organizations like Black Lives Matter and various white supremacy groups rose in prominence and voice. Whether this was the intention of the Obama administration or not is irrelevant at this point. It happened. Now, President Trump has to deal with it and thus far the administration hasn’t been able to do much.
As for Owens, she represents a growing number of black conservatives who are spreading the word that the Democratic Party is not doing them any favors and never really has. That’s why her perspective from last year is so important today.
For so long, black conservatives have not been able to have a voice; people who have bi-racial children, people in bi-racial relationships, it has been so black and white. I blame Obama. His eight years in office did a lot of damage in terms of race relations in this country.
Regardless of one’s stance on Owens after her Hitler comments resurfaced today, we cannot abandon the message she’s been building and spreading around the nation.
