Candace Owens Talks About The White Lives Matter Controversy:
After Kanye and Candace shared a photo of themselves wearing White Lives Matter t-shirts and the ensuing controversy, Candace uploaded an episode on YouTube explaining why she opposes and wants to discredit the Black Lives Matter movement. In the video, she provided data regarding black Americans. According to her, 20 million Black children were surgically aborted in 2018.
The surgical abortion facilities are located closer to the homes of black people and offer planned abortions. At the time, the USA was celebrating abortion rights. However, this abortion causes the number of black people to fall.
She also highlighted that obesity is a contributing factor in many deaths in the USA, particularly among black women. She also mentioned how 70% of Black students in California failed to fulfill the state’s basic reading and writing standards and failed to pass basic reading assessments.
However, the White Lives Matter t-shirt that Kanye and Candace wore on October 3, 2022, continued to get attention. She also referred to certain users as Twitter and Instagram bots since they had been programmed with knowledge but did not want to think for themselves.
At last, she responded to people who said, “how dare Candace Owen” she said,” how dare you, how dare you to insist on our stupidity, how dare you to reject all of our problems and make a mockery of those of us who have the courage to stand up and continue to point them out and how dare you to think that I am going to shut up now”
This YouTube Video has now increased the Candace Owens controversy all over the internet and increased the tension between Candace Owens and those who opposed her wearing the White Lives Matter t-shirt with Kanye West.
