#KanyeWest has been pretty vocal on his political stances lately but one thing he was able to do was separate his political views and his fashion design…until now.
So y’all remember #TurningPointUSA’s #YoungBlackLeadershipSummit that’s going on this weekend in Washington D.C.? It’s where #StaceyDash and #BenCarson are speaking and it is catered to young black conservatives.
Well, apparently Kanye’s newest clothing design debuted there. The shirts Kanye created say #Blexit on them and supposedly advocate for a black exit, or “Blexit,” from the #Democratic Party, according to Turning Point USA’s communications director, conservative commentator and Kanye’s homegirl, #CandaceOwens.
“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,” Owens told @PageSix. Blexit is a play on the term #Brexit, which became popular when Great Britain moved to withdraw from the European Union.
Owens added that Ye “has taken one of the boldest steps in America to open a conversation we have needed to have.”
Although Kanye did not appear at the conference, Owens reportedly said he was there “in spirit.”
If y’all need a refresher on Kanye’s recent political trail, he started making a statement when he began sporting one of Trump’s “Make America Great Again” hats.
He recently appeared at the White House for a meeting with Trump, where he repeatedly praised him and showed him some affection. Ye also told trump that his MAGA hat made him feel like his favorite superhero, Superman.
But despite his continued support for Trump, Kanye has actually been supportive of Chicago mayoral candidate and Democrat Amara Enyia. He even donated $73,000 to her campaign and briefly appeared next to her at one of her events.
We’ll keep you updated on all the latest, #Roomies!
