By encouraging black Americans to shun the American flag, sports apparel manufacturer Nike and former NFL Quarterback-Turned-Social-Activist Colin Kaepernick are actually promoting segregation, conservative commentator Candace Owens said Wednesday.

Owens, leader of the “Blexit” movement seeking to introduce conservative values to urban society, made the comment on Twitter in reaction to Nike’s decision to pull its “Betsy Ross Flag” shoe line because Kaepernick – famous for protesting during the National Anthem at NFL games – complained:

"People may not realize it but what Colin Kaepernick & Nike are advocating for is segregation.

"They are telling black people that the American flag is not for us and that we need something “separate but equal” to represent us.

"They are reintroducing segregationist mentality."
