Kanye launches “Blexit” t-shirts to encourage Black voters to leave Democratic party
Kanye West seems to think he’s the pied piper of Black people and is now hocking t-shirts encouraging Black folks to flee the Democratic party for a “Blexit” campaign, a play off of Britain’s exit from the European Union.
On Saturday, the Ye rapper and Donald Trump’s manic sidekick, debuted the line of tees during Turning Point USA’s Young Black Leadership Summit filled with young black conservatives’ at the White House in Washington, D.C.
“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,” Turning Point USA communications director Candace Owens told Page Six.
West “has taken one of the boldest steps in America to open a conversation we have needed to have,” Owens added.
The dumpster fire apparel bares the motto: “We Free,” or the word “Blexit,” and the description of each item reads “Design by Kanye West.”
According to its website, Blexit “is a frequency for those who have released themselves from the political orthodoxy. It is a rebellion led by Americans wishing to disrupt the simulation of fear. Blexit is a renaissance. It is our formal declaration of independence.”
At this point, we’re not sure West can disappoint the people any more than he already has.
After his erratic rant at the White House during a meeting with President Trump, Kanye West, in search of another captive audience, stood on a table inside a Washington D.C. Apple store and gave an impromptu speech no one asked for.
The 2018 Young Black Leadership Summit was sponsored by Turning Point USA, a conservative organization which says it’s focused on identifying, empowering and organizing young Americans to take their spot in the national limelight.
When President Trump arrived, he spoke for nearly an hour with his speech covering the recent bomb threats, undocumented immigrants, prison reform coordinated by his son-in-law Jared Kushner, Abraham Lincoln, political correctness and praise for Kanye West, Dr. Ben Carson and Candace Owens.
