It’s safe to say political commentator Candace Owens isn’t a fan of the Democratic Party or the Congressional Black Caucus, especially after the behavior they displayed during President Donald Trump’s recent State of the Union address.
After the ceremony, Owens, otherwise known as Red Pill Black, posted a series of tweets bashing the Democratic Party’s treatment of black Americans and blatant disrespect for the accomplishments achieved under the Trump administration.
Phew. Turns out it's not just the triumphs of black people that Democrats hate; It's America in general.

The young conservative continued her Twitter rant by stating that members of the Congressional Black Caucus who remained seated during the standing ovation would have stood if the announcement came from former President Barack Obama. She added that those members who sat idly during the ovation “are nothing more than slaves to the Democratic Party.”
If Obama had announced that black unemployment was at an all time low, the black caucus would have leapt to their feet and erupted into cheers.
Their silence last night proves that they do not hold black interests.
They are nothing more than slaves to the Democratic Party.

The YouTube star also came to the defense of black conservatives who are often ostracized and ridiculed for sociopolitical beliefs that differ from 87% of the black community that politically aligns with the Democratic Party.
“For too long, blacks that have been trying to help the black community have been labeled coons, while those that wish to destroy it have been celebrated as heroes,” Owens wrote. “That chapter is coming to an end.
“BlackAmerica is on the brink of an ideological revolution. We can’t be stopped.”
