Blexit Leader Candice Owens says that, in her lifetime, she’s never met a Black American slave or a White American slave owner – but, she has met “lazy people” who want others to support them.
On Wednesday, Owens, whose Blexit movement seeks to introduce conservative principles to urban communities, tweeted that “human parasites…come in every race”:
“Maybe I live in a box, but I’ve never met a single black American who was a slave or a single white American who was a slaveowner.
“I’ve only come across lazy people who believe that those of us who work ought to support them.
“Human parasites. And they come in every race.”
Owens’ sentiment is redolent of that of former NFL star Running Back Herschel Walker, who recently asked, “Why are we penalizing people for what their ancestors did?”
“If we look back far enough, each of us—no matter our race—would find something wrong in our predecessors’ lives. What’s important is how we live our lives today,” Walker wrote on Twitter.
The Reverend Franklin Graham retweeted Walker’s post, adding that “When we stand before God, we will be accountable for our own lives, not for our ancestors’”
