Conservative firebrand Candace Owens lashed out at "racist Democrats" for allegedly exploiting the Black Lives Matter movement to bring back segregation and "destroy" lives. Owens condemned companies like Netflix and Uber Eats in a series of tweets on Saturday, taking issue with categories they created specifically for Black people, The Sun reported. "Netflix now has a category for 'black cinema'. Uber Eats now has a category for 'black restaurants,'" Owens wrote. "The Left has reintroduced segregation back into American society under the guise of progressivism— they used #BLM propaganda to anger black people to the point of blindness."

"Racist Democrats rebranded segregation as black empowerment, and ignorant fools fell for it," she added in another tweet. "Spoiler alert: they aren’t done yet. Keep believing evil white conservatives want to bring harm to you while the actual evil white racist progressives continue to destroy your life."



 

The right-wing sensation has regularly slammed the Black Lives Matter movement, calling it a scam perpetrated by the Democratic Party to extort money from and garner the support of Black voters. Owens recently criticized the movement, as well as radical left-wing outfit Antifa, for attacking "innocent small business owners" and not the real villains.

"Hey ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter— maybe instead of sending your foot soldiers to go after innocent small business owners, you may want to divert some attention to the @smithsonian and @kencen who just robbed ALL Americans of over 1 billion dollars of Covid relief," Owens wrote in December of the second COVID-19 relief package, which reportedly includes sizeable funding for creating Smithsonian museums dedicated to American women and Latinx history. Touted by Democrats as the 'Cares Act', the legislation also allocated $25million for the John F Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.



 

Owens has consistently attacked progressive leaders, alleging that they only pretend to care about black people with cash-rich movements like BLM. After President-Elect Joe Biden was projected the winner of the 2020 election in November, the conservative commentator claimed that the money raised for the movement in light of police brutality actually went to the campaigns of several top Democrats, including Biden.

"Where did all the billions that Black Lives Matter raise go?" Owens wrote. "I STILL believe it went to Joe Biden's campaign. I believe BLM has been a Democrat scam from its inception. They use the faces of dead black men to inspire people emotionally to give to the DNC, every election.

"This would explain why we only ever hear about BLM during election cycles. The money (billions) does not go to black neighborhoods, black companies, or black children. It’s a vortex. And nobody has been made to answer questions regarding where the money ends up," she added in a follow-up tweet.



 

Black Lives Matter protests erupted across the country following the Memorial Day death of George Floyd in May, which grabbed headlines after a horrific video captured how he died in Minneapolis police custody. Mass protests against police brutality and racial injustice -- several of which turned violent and resulted in the destruction of lives and property -- took place in major cities across the US.
