I first learned about Candace Owens on Twitter. Her handle at that time was @RedPillBlack (she’s now @RealCandaceO). I had to look up what that meant. The red pill represents an awakening and Owens in black, hence “red pill black”. She described on her YouTube channel her transition from a liberal to a conservative and here she is breaking the sad news to her parents.
She became more vocal and popular and somewhere along the line came to the attention Charlie Kirk who at age 18 started Turning Point USA. Kirk hired her and they now work together. You may also recall that Owens was praised publicly by Kanye West for urging blacks to think for themselves and to “get off the plantation” of the Democratic Party. The video below is Owens speaking at the recent Young Black Leadership Summit held in Washington D.C. She is making a difference and the Democrats are terrified.
I’ve been following Turning Point USA ever since I found out they published a Professor Watchlist exposing and documenting college professors who discriminate against conservative students and advance leftist propaganda in the classroom. Obviously that could be a full-time job in itself.
Another thing Turning Point has been doing a great job of is outreach on college campuses. Their mission is to build the most organized, active, and powerful conservative grassroots activist network on college campuses across the country. And they are making tremendous headway. President Trump even showed up to speak to the attendees of the Young Black Leadership Summit. This scares the Democrats too. Please do all you can do to support TPUSA.com, Candace Owens & President Trump.
