I wonder how Candace will deflect away from this....

As much as it may delight the closet racists in the GOP to hear Candace tell them that she never encountered any race issues in her life....

She will have to explain why she asked the NAACP to help her sue her school over racial bullying....

"Scot X. Esdaile, the Connecticut NAACP president who helped Owens with her lawsuit, was shocked to hear Owens become a conservative. Esdaile told Mic in 2018, “We’re very saddened and disappointed in her. It seems to me that she’s now trying to play to a different type of demographic.” He also said, “It’s the same type of thing Clarence Thomas did. [Thomas] reaped all the benefits of affirmative action and then tried to roll over on it. It’s that kind of mentality and disrespect.” Owens now calls the NAACP “one of the worst groups for Black people,” even though the organization helped her win a racial discrimination lawsuit."

I thought the NAACP’s mission was to support the advancement of all colored people? What happens when a person of color becomes conservative? Are they no longer eligible for support from the NAACP?
NAACP defended Candace Owens when she needed it. Got her a $37,000 settlement

She threw them under the bus

The lawsuit says she was being threatened by white boys. Like or dislike Owens, the mission of the NAACP is that they should assist her or any other person in that situation. Does that mean Owens is then forbiddened to disagree with the organization? If so, then you just validated my point that support from the NAACP is conditional.
Owens claimed she was “traumatized” by the racist taunts of a 14 year old white boy.

10 years later she told Fox she had never experienced racism
When and where did she say this? Do you have a link?

I thought so. I did a quick search myself and came across this article and wondered if this was what you were referring to. I'm sorry but I have to say, that is not what she said.

She said: "I do not remember when I was growing up having all of these race issues."

She did not say she never experienced racism herself and, contrary to what IM2 says, she never said racism doesn't exist.

Saying "race issues" is not the same as saying "racism". What she's saying is that the subject of racism and race issues were not as prominent and had not gripped the country as it has in the last few years. Not even you can deny this.

I don't know if Owens has ever said anything along these lines but I and a lot of other people are getting sick and tired of people seeing racism in everything from movie roles to a bowl of corn flakes. It is a major source of frustration and anger for people like myself and Owens.
WTF?

She never experienced any “race issues” until the Evil Black Man Obama but she had no problem pocketing $37,000 because she was so traumatized by racism

She is a con artist whose new scam is bilking Conservatives
Wrong. Again, she said: "...all of these race issues...". She did not say there were never race issues before and she did not say she never experienced racism.

Not even you can deny that race and racism was not as prominent an issue in this country when she had her experience as it is now. The whole country has gone batshit crazy on the issue to the point that we're seeing and hearing accusations every day by celebs, politicians and others and most of the time they're frivolous.

If you refuse to interpret Owens' remarks the way they were meant because you think she's an Uncle Tom then perhaps you'll accept my words the way they're meant: There is racism in this country. There was then and there is now. But is the issue of racism more prevalent and at the fore of the national conscience now than it was ten, fifteen years ago? Absolutely. Are we seeing more accusations and allegations of racism now than we did then? Absolutely. Are some of these accusations spurious and false? Absolutely.

So you see, it's possible to acknowledge that racism exists while at the same time decrying the hysteria and paranoia that has sprung up around the issue.

Racism itself is damaging enough. But when people are seeing racism where there is none and making kneejerk accusations because of a misunderstanding or lack of information, it is even more damaging.

I was called a liar by IM2 because I'm white and he called me racist for nothing more than disagreeing with him. JoeB calls me racist for defending Nick Sandmann when Sandmann did nothing but stand there and smile at a guy who got in his face unprovoked.

These are just a couple of personal examples but it shows how it has gotten completely out of control and it is damaging lives of those who don't deserve it.
Why do Conservatives struggle so much with our language?
Why do liberals?

It's simple English composition and it's a simple comment with no room for interpretation. Seriously, how do you get "I never experienced racism" out of "I do not remember when I was growing up (the country) having all of these race issues."? (insert is mine)

Racism does not qualify as a “race issue”?
Of course it does. But I'm not the one constraining the context, you are.

"Race issue" entails any matter pertaining to race relations. Ergo, this involves people saying a decorative cotton plant is racist or that a white person with dreadlocks is race or cultural appropriation.

Before ten to fifteen years ago we hardly ever heard these kinds of ridiculous claims and accusations and now we hear them every fucking day.

I am honestly baffled as to how you can look at the fact that race issues, accusations and allegations have exploded in the last few years and not know what Owens is talking about. You're not stupid so you know this as well as I do.

She cashed in her $37,000 payout the year before Obama was elected. Then claimed Obama was responsible for the race issues in this country?
Knowing that other blacks have switched parties and changed their minds about Trump while not receiving a dime to do so, I fail to see your point.
I have yet to see any significant change in black support of Trump

Does that make it a “race issue”?
Sigh That's not the point. The point is, other blacks have switched parties and/or changed their minds about Trump and none of them have gained anything from it except disdain from other blacks. In fact, many were conservatives and supported Trump from the beginning. So this argument that Owens only switched for the money is specious.
There is no proof of that
Oh, so now you want proof after making an entirely subjective judgment about why Owens switched parties. Incredible.

The fact that Owens has a history of demanding payment for racial discrimination,
A "history" of demanding payment for racial discrimination? It was just the one lawsuit, was it not?

started a far left website that was critical of Trump, shut it down and emerged six months later as an arch conservative and FoxNews darling is not suspicious to you?
Why would it be? I leaned left myself at one time and eventually became a conservative. So what?

So are you telling me that being a victim of white discrimination and bashing Trump paid off for her so she decided to, what, go in the completely opposite direction out of greed?

Seems to me that remaining a Democrat racism victim would have been more lucrative.
Quite a metamorphosis from Owens

From arch Liberal to arch Conservative in a few months
You do realize that she's not the only black person to make the switch, yes? And you do realize that other blacks who switched received no money for doing so, right?
What positive message has Candace really given too anyone?

She learned the Diamond and Silk lesson
There is one thing that neither you, IM2 or any other Candace Owens-hater has bothered to do to gain some actual knowledge and perspective on this: Ask her.
We have.

What do you actually know about this transition of hers other than that it seemed (to you) to happen so quickly? Don't give me "It looks suspicious" or speculation, assumption and conjecture. What do you actually know?
She claims she has never experienced any racism, which was found to not be true. This switch she has done is just like those 2 boot licking clowns Diamond and Silk, it is any opportunity for a financial gain.
Ghost rider needs to shut the fuck up.
Quit hiding behind the ignore button and say that to me directly you coward.

That's your pat response to any viewpoint you disagree with:

"_________(insert name of individual, group, race or ethnicity) just needs to shut the fuck up."

The only reason he's sucking Owens pussy is because she supports his racist point of view.
I'm not surprised you haven't noticed but, I have said nothing in praise of Owens. Not one word. All I've done is ask these Owens critics to give evidence that they know she switched parties out of greed. So far, none have.

I have done plenty of research on Owens and I have seen plenty of sellouts like her in my life. She's a sellout, I don't want to talk to her and don't need to.
No one said you had to.

There are black republicans who do not hold the views of Owens and they don't get shot up to national prominence like she is because they don't run around dissing blacks who oppose racism and they don't lie about how racism doesn't exist or that blacks have this mysterious victim mentality that was first made up by the fat cancer patient.
Owens never said racism doesn't exist.
Owens claimed racism is no longer a problem

Conservatives pay her big money to say it.
The definition and perception of racism has expanded in scope and complexity. That’s the problem. Saying white engineers can never be good as Asian engineers due to genetics, is racist ( this has been said to me). Saying that you disagree with an energy

The definition and perception of Racism today has expanded in scope and complexity. That’s the problem. Saying white engineers can never be good as Asian engineers is racist. Questioning or disagreeing with the economic or energy policy of a Black President is not racist. Content on this board provides a good example.
Official and open racism is no longer tolerated. Expression of racism has become more subtle.

Doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. One only has to look at the election of Obama to see the racists come out of the woodwork.
You just contradicted yourself.... “the Election of Barack Obama caused the racists to come out of the woodwork”? Obama won substantially.... not the work of racists. Again, thevj

It goes without saying that if you don't agree with her views, it will not be a positive message to you.

And continuing with the greed line of argument continues to ignore the fact that other blacks have switched with no financial gain.
Name a few.
I will when you give me proof that Owens only switched out of greed.

She learned the Diamond and Silk lesson
There is one thing that neither you, IM2 or any other Candace Owens-hater has bothered to do to gain some actual knowledge and perspective on this: Ask her.
You have. So what did she say?
We are still waiting for her to tell us what time period America was great for black folks, for some odd reason she couldn't answer that question.

This is irrelevant to the question I asked. I asked if anyone ever asked her why she switched.

Besides, I saw that video. Every time she tried to answer the idiot kept shouting her down. Sorry, but this one doesn't cut it.

What do you actually know about this transition of hers other than that it seemed (to you) to happen so quickly? Don't give me "It looks suspicious" or speculation, assumption and conjecture. What do you actually know?
She claims she has never experienced any racism, which was found to not be true.
Wrong. She never made that claim.
“Obama did a lot to tear this country apart. I do not remember when I was growing up, having all these race issues, okay? I really don’t remember it. And suddenly, toward the end of Obama, we started hearing all of this rhetoric drummed up. It became White versus Black all over again. I shouldn’t even say all over again because when I was alive, it was not an issue. It all became about race. Candace Owens.
I see nowhere in this quote that she said she never experienced racism.

The subject of race, racism and cultural appropriation have gripped this country like it never has before, even when she was a victim of racism. This is what she was talking about.

She didn't say racism was not an issue, she said race was not an issue like it is today. Meaning, we've never had this level of accusations, allegations and paranoia about race. We didn't have the problem we have today of people making issues about race that are not.

The way Owens and people like myself see it, racism exists. However, the number of people being publicly accused of racism has skyrocketed. People are being accused of racism for everything from smiling at an elderly Native American to not showing the proper level of contrition for white privilege. We're being hounded from all directions and usually it's for the most ridiculous reasons imaginable.

This switch she has done is just like those 2 boot licking clowns Diamond and Silk, it is any opportunity for a financial gain.
Did Diamond and Silk switch or were they always conservatives?
What did they switch from?
Ask him, he's the one who said it.

Here is a video of her weak ass excuse of why she switched parties.
First of all, I've seen this video and I happen to agree with a lot of what she says. I don't see it as a "weak excuse" at all. Secondly, no one needs an "excuse" to switch to the Republican party. "Excuse" implies that the action is immoral, unethical or frowned upon. To say she needs an excuse to switch implies that one needs an excuse to be a Republican at all.

Switching to the Republican party needs no excuse or justification and neither myself, Candace Owens, or any other person who decides to cross the aisle needs your blessing or absolution or your permission.
You're correct this is America and you can join which ever party you like, it still doesn't change the fact of who she is. Unfortunately most black folks who become republicans are looking to be accepted by white republicans and will attack other blacks or lose self to be accepted by those republicans.
Are black Democrats not looking to be accepted by white Democrats? I would think this is exactly what they are doing because they feel only white Democrats can help them pursue black interests.

Although, it may be more accurate to say that white Democrats are looking to be accepted by blacks.
No, most black Democrats want to expand Social Security and Medicare -- improve voting rights protections, strengthen labor protections -- you know, pretty much the same shit most other democrats want policy wise.
Okay. But by the same token, the obverse is also true: Most black Republicans want to expand Republican interests and programs --you know, pretty much the same shit most other Republicans want policy wise.

It seems to me that a lot of Democrats, both white and black, have erected this false paradigm where, to be a black Democrat is right and good and true and only because they agree with Democrat policies and visions. Whereas, to be a black Republican who pushes for any kind of policy or view that does not totally align with certain Democrat policies regarding the black community is to be an Uncle Tom sellout and a whitey suckup.

You can't have it both ways. Logic and the law of averages dictates that sometimes you're going to have a black conservative who has ideas and views that run counter to yours and that they hold these views because they sincerely believe them and not just because he wants acceptance from whitey.

We don't need to be patted on the head by white Democrats and told that we are one of the "good blacks" -- because we don't have this built in hatred of ourselves like some black republicans have....
One could also say that some black Democrats have a built-in hatred of themselves. For sure there are a lot of white Democrats with a built-in hatred of themselves because of all the white privilege rhetoric flying around.

You will never see a black democrat say "Racism does not exist and has not ever existed in this country" -- just so you can get some pats on the head like this moron does...

"Peterson joined CRTV host Gavin McInnes on “CRTV Tonight,” where he demonstrated his trademark shtick of downplaying racism in America to conservative audiences. McInnes asked Peterson, “It’s 2018 in America, does racism exist?” “Absolutely not and it has never existed,” Peterson replied. “It is a made-up word.”



It's tantamount to a Jewish person who had DIRECT descendants who died in gas chambers claiming that the holocaust never existed just to get pats on the head from Neo-Nazis...and folks like you shaming other Jewish people for not adopting his beliefs....
I've never heard of this guy but, if he actually said there is/was no racism then you're right, he's a moron.

The difference here between Owens and this guy though is that he actually said it. Owens did not. Owens merely said: "I do not remember when I was growing up having all of these race issues." People have conflated these words so out of proportion that they have been rendered meaningless.

I've already explained what I think she meant by this and I cited the explosion of race-related accusations, allegations and attributions a number of times as an example of what she was talking about. And you know what? Not one of you has even acknowledged that it is true that we're seeing and hearing about race and racism today like never before. We have never before seen the numbers of accusations we're seeing now and we have never before seen the number of false accusations of racism we're seeing now.

Finally, let's take an objective look at what Owens said in context rather than quoting her out of context as Democrats are wont to do. Here is the entire paragraph:

"Obama did a lot to tear this country apart. I do not remember when I was growing up, having all these race issues, o.k. I really don’t remember it. Then suddenly towards the end of Obama, we started hearing all this rhetoric drummed up. This white versus black all over again”

As you can plainly see, she is not saying racism doesn't exist or that it didn't exist. She's referring to the fact that race issues are suddenly everywhere and it's what everybody is talking about on a daily basis.

She may or may not be right that Obama had anything to do with it but she is spot on when she says it wasn't so prevalent ten to fifteen years ago. That is a fact.
I could understand conservative blacks embracing fiscal conservatism. Control spending, balance budgets, keep taxes low.

However, I can’t understand blacks like Candace Owens and Alveda King dismissing the struggles blacks have faced in the past and still face today. The repeating of racist claims that welfare programs equate to slavery is beyond understanding
I don't think she's dismissing the struggles, I believe she's saying the struggle is not necessary and that blacks need to do more to get themselves on their feet. I happen to agree with this.

Whatever struggles the black community has, Democrat policies will never end those struggles. Single motherhood for example. Owens brings up absent black fathers in the video Supa cited to me. He called the things she said in the video a "weak ass excuse" for switching parties. Problem is, Owens is absolutely correct on this point: absent fathers in the black community are a real problem. It is not whitey's fault and it will never be solved by whites or with welfare or any other social program.

There needs to be a cultural sea change in the black community where things like this are concerned for any real change to happen.
It's all well and good to say the black community needs a sea-change....it still comes down to socio-economics....example...

When my two teenage sons are out in the world -- even tho they came from a 2-parent household...Do they need to wear a uniform or something to signal that they are one of the "good blacks"?? Would that help them escape structural discrimination that still remains today?

When Candace Owens was a teen - A VERY VERY SHORT TIME AGO -- did her coming from a two-parent household prevent her from having to sue her school district for racial discrimination??

How many hoops did this country require white folks to jump thru to prove they deserved equal treatment under the law??

And when those of us seek to eliminate that structural discrimination --- will you join us or oppose us???
Candace Owens fought real racial discrimination against her. The irony here is that she being a proven victim in a case she is calling bullshit on the prevalence of racism charges when someone does not get their way or desired outcome.
White people didn't vote for Obama. Candace Owens said that when she was young racism wasn't a problem.
Bullshit. Do you honestly think Obama got elected on the black vote alone? Jesus, you are a piece of work.

Obama got over 40% of the white vote. IM2 is a moron.
