Owens wrote about the idea in an op-ed published on Breitbart earlier this week.
“For decades, the black community has been in an emotionally abusive relationship with the Democrat Party,” Owens wrote. “Our fidelity to leftist politicians coupled with our false belief that a larger government might facilitate solutions, has led to the overall collapse of our families, neighborhoods, and incidentally, our futures. BLEXIT is a national movement of minorities that have awakened to the truth. It is for those who have taken an objective look at our decades-long allegiance to the left and asked ourselves ‘what do we have to show for it?'”
“Kanye saw my original design, and said, ‘I can do it better,’” she told the news outlet. “It certainly was. He redesigned the logo with vibrant colors inspired by his trip to Uganda.”
The New York Post reports that the apparel designed by West includes the motto “We Free” and “Blexit.” The shirts were first handed out over the weekend at Turning Point USA’s Young Black Leadership Summit.
According to Fox News, the “Blexit” campaign will hold rallies across the country, with the goal of raising awareness ahead of the 2020 presidential election. The “Blexit” name resembles the “Brexit” name that was given when the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union.
Earlier this summer, a similar movement called #WalkAway also promoted disenfranchised communities and others leaving the Democratic party.
