When asked Sunday who she specifically holds responsible for the racial problems currently besetting America, conservative political commentator Candace Owens laid the blame squarely on the shoulders of one man: Former President Barack Hussein Obama.
“It’s been so black and white, the conversation, and I blame [Barack] Obama,” she pithily said during an appearance on “Fox & Friends.” “His eight years in office did a lot of damage in terms of race relations in this country.”
A survey of Florida voters conducted in 2013 found that a majority believed race relations had worsened under Obama. A national poll conducted two years later found the same belief among all Americans, including blacks and whites:
Now guess what a CBS poll in 2016 found:
Try as they might to rebut Miss Owens, whom liberals loathe with a sick vengeance, she spoke the indisputable truth Sunday.
She also said the truth when she took a stab at failed Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, saying, “And I tell you, Hillary didn’t help much when she kept calling everybody racist and sexist.” Indeed.
Being as Owens is a free spirit who always keeps it real, she even took some shots at the Republican Party as well.
“I hate to speak in terms of Democrats and Republicans, but in particularly regarding Republicans, they really get up on blacks,” she said.
“They said, ‘OK, 93 percent of you are voting for Democrats,’ so they didn’t even really embrace the black community,” Owens continued, adding that Republicans gave up from the get-go and just automatically assumed converting black voters would be impossible.
But they were dead wrong, as evidenced by the stunning change seen since President Donald Trump took office last year. A Reuters poll published this past week found that the president’s approval rating among black men has skyrocketed to 22 percent, in part presumably because of Owens’ and her friend Kanye West’s recent pro-Trump rhetoric.
Trump must not be as racist as liberals claim if so many black men support him. The fact is that neither he, his supporters nor the majority of Americans are racists and bigots, as the radicals on the left would have everyone believe.
It’s a point Owens herself articulated on Twitter a couple hours after her Fox News appearance.
“White people make up over 63% of America. If this country was fundamentally racist, Obama could NOT have served two terms. The suggestion that ‘racism’ is why @realDonaldTrump won wreaks of stupidity; it’s an assessment made by those who struggle to think critically,” she opined.
*round of applause*

Speaking of which, during a summit Saturday in Los Angeles, former first lady Michelle Obama obliviously said, “We’re still living in racism.”
Never mind the fact that Obama”won the largest share of white support of any Democrat in a two-man race since 1976,” as reported by Politico after the 2008 election.
“We’re going to wait for the next person to save us. We thought it was going to be Barack Obama, but he didn’t end racism. Like, I voted for the black man, and we’re still living in racism,” she added.
No, we’re not “still living in racism,” you uncritically-thinking race-baiter. What we’re living in is the freest, most racially diverse country on Earth.
America isn’t racist. Nor is Trump. The racial divide is being perpetuated by the very thinking Owens and Kanye West are fighting against.
