Candace Owens: America is turning into a racist country under liberal leadership

Liberal leaders are doing a bang-up job turning America into a racist country, Conservative author Candace Owens says.

In an interview with Mark Steyn on Fox News, Owens denounced woke liberals for their nonsensical approach to secondary education.

Recently, a BLM off-shoot group, Dallas Justice Now, penned an “Open Letter to Wealthy White Liberals of HPISD,” demanding white parents pledge not to enroll their kids in Ivy League schools and Owens reacted to the group’s virtue-signaling on Monday’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“It’s becoming increasingly more bizarre,” Owens said, citing the fact that affirmative action still exists (which is on its face, legal discrimination based on race) and that black and brown students are more likely to take a spot away from a white student, not the other way around.

“You could identify this as the bigotry of low expectations. They’re saying that black Americans aren’t smart enough to get into these schools by their own merit,” she said. “But here’s what’s interesting – it’s worse than the bigotry of low expectations. It’s the bigotry of no expectations.”

She went on to slam the purveyors of the backward demands, noting that colleges and universities would be turned upside down, where student bodies at lesser schools would be populated by whites and Asian Americans, and Ivy League institutions like Harvard would have only black and brown students.

In reality, calls for diversity actually mean calls for the abolition of whiteness, and the left is increasingly more vocal and unashamed of their philosophies.

“America, with liberals and progressives at the helm of it, is certainly becoming an increasingly more systematically racist country. That’s what they want. That’s what they’re asking for,” Owens remarked.

“[They] want people to focus on skin color and make sure people are segregated according to their skin color,” she said. “They want every action in this country to be informed by the color of people’s skin.”

Owens also ripped former Democrat Rep. Beto O’Rourke, calling him a “political masochist,” and vented her frustration with the notion of so-called “white privilege.”

“Do you know what I hear when a white person looks at me and says, ‘I have white privilege because I’m white? That’s racist.  You’re saying to me, Candace, you’re a black girl, so you don’t understand. I’m better than you in this society. That’s the very definition of racism.”

“And that’s exactly what wokeism is,” she continued. “It’s not even a close cousin to racism. It is it, by a different name.”

Sitting in for Fox News host Tucker Carlson for this interview, Mark Steyn pointed to the contradiction that, if America is “the most racist nation on earth,” why are so many people from predominately black countries (in addition to the obviously large swaths of migrants from South America) clamoring to break in?
