Candace Owens slammed former President Barack Obama and his presidency for current racial tension in the United States.
Owens, the communications director of Turner Point USA, appeared on Fox News on Sunday morning exclaiming Black conservatives were never allowed to have much of a “voice” and were often “ignored”.
The conservative activist was a hot topic two weeks ago after “Heartless” rapper Kanye West tweeted, “I love the way Candace Owens thinks.”
Owens conveyed Republicans “gave up” on Black people and chose not to adopt the African-American community. She explained that the conversation about the different political parties have been so “Black and white” and faulted the issue on the 44th President.
“I blame Obama, his 8 years in office did a lot of damage in terms of race relations in this country,” Owens stated. She also blamed democrat Hillary Clinton and said she “didn’t help much when she kept calling everybody racist and sexist.”
The Black conservative said now is the time for Republicans to empower the Black community and added her support for a possible White House summit dealing with race relations, however, Twitter users were not here for Owens remarks.
Some healing? Are you serious ? Healing with your president saying Nazis are fine people? There was 43 presidents before Obama, but why all the blames goes to him ?

So, she blames Obama on “Race Relations”. And suspect @RealCandaceO places Donald Trump at the pinnacle of race mediators. He’s proven it too, befriending Kanye West and talking about how both sides were to blame in Charlottesville. She’s a typical #FoxNews Pay Grabber. https://t.co/9OCHCO3Nbr
