Black conservative commentator Candace Owens made a brutally honest "confession" in the wake of George Floyd's death, and it has leftists everywhere fuming.
In a video posted to Facebook, Owens unashamedly stated, "Confession: I DO NOT support George Floyd and I refuse to see him as a martyr. But I hope his family receives justice.”
“It has been weighing very heavily on my heart and on my mind as well,” Owens started by saying.
“There were so many emotions and so much pressure for me to go with the popular opinion about who George Floyd was,” she added. “We are being sold a lot of lies at the detriment to the black community, at the detriment to the white community and at the detriment to America as a whole.”
“So, I want to come out and say that I do not support George Floyd and the media’s depiction of him as a martyr for black America,” Owens continued.
“Not every black American is a criminal. Not every black American is committing crimes. But we are unique in that we are the only people that fight and scream and demand support for the people in our community that are up to no good,” Owens stated.
“You would be hard-pressed to find a Jewish person who has spent five stints in prison, who commits a crime and dies while committing a crime and that the Jewish people demand justice for,” she said. And it is the same in white and Latino communities as well.
“What I am saying is not any defense for Derek Chauvin,” referring to the officer who killed George Floyd.
“The family of George Floyd deserves justice for the way that he died but I also am not going to accept the narrative that this is the best the black community has to offer,” Owens said. “For whatever reason, it has become fashionable over the last five or six years for us to turn criminals into heroes overnight. It is something I find despicable.”
“George Floyd was not an amazing person. George Floyd is being upheld as an amazing human being,” she said.
“Everyone is pretending that this man lived a heroic lifestyle,” Owens said. “We are embarrassing in that regard. Nobody wants to tell the truth in black America. Our biggest problem is us.”
Owens concluded her video by telling people that she had “no apologies to make. George Floyd is not my martyr. He can be yours.”
In a separate video Owens posted, she admits that black Americans "are going to be angry with me" for calling the truth out about the black community and George Floyd.
But that's not going to stop Candace Owens from speaking the truth about what's going on in America right now.
