Timing is everything and the Center is hosting a lunch forum with Candace Owens just as her profile is exploding in the national news, partly because Kanye West tweeted, “I love the way Candace Owens thinks.” I’ll try to get you up to speed on some of the deets of the controversy, but if you want to be part of this wave crashing in Minneapolis on May 8th you’d better register now, because it looks like our room holding 400 will be SOLD OUT in just a few days. [Update] We’ve secured a bigger room so register now if you’d like to be part of American Experiment’s largest lunch forum EVER!

Candace Owens is the Director of Urban Engagement for Turning Point USA. She considers its mission critical to win back Universities, which have become a breeding ground for indoctrination. She exploded onto the scene in the summer of 2017, gaining notoriety through her political vlog series. Owens worked 4 years at a private equity firm in Manhattan, graduated from the University of Rhode Island, and took executive training courses from the NYU School of Business. She is a contributing writer for the Federalist.com, and is enthusiastic about inspiring tough conversations today that will effect positive changes for tomorrow and bring a message of empowerment to the black community.
Here is the video that put her on the map:
Owens uses a theme from the movie The Matrix to urge young people to “take the red pill” and become a conservative like her and she has even had the courage to take on the Black Lives Matter movement.
Last Saturday morning Kanye West tweeted his approval of Candace:
I love the way Candace Owens thinks

Constantly bringing up the past keeps you stuck there

And as expected, Candace isn’t taking the smears directed at her sitting down:
Kanye West tweets 7 words and leftists rush to smear me as far-right & anti-LGBT. So what terrified them?
The truth did. The left is losing control of their blacks. Ready to be awakened? Watch the truth about my journey off the plantation w/ @RubinReport. https://t.co/YviWe4PQk0 pic.twitter.com/GcN35gBoIa

And you won’t want to miss this video of Candace in action shutting down some BLM protesters:
Black Lives Matter protesters showed up to my @UCLA event to protest. Here is a video clip of me smacking them down with the truth; they’re a bunch of whiny toddlers, pretending to be oppressed for attention. pic.twitter.com/riBA0A3J1I

And the latest is that Chance the Rapper even entered the fray with this tweet:
Black people don’t have to be democrats.
