Candace Owens — YouTube’s Red Pill Black channel hostess — mocked the generalized hysteria over “white supremacy” in the aftermath of recent unrest in Charlottesville, VA.
In a Wednesday-published video, Owens blamed the news media for hyping racial agitation:
It’s obviously the media’s fault. I mean, the media has created this entire narrative, and it is crazy, absolutely crazy, that people have not figured this out, yet.
Owens noted the focus of the news media’s attention on white racial nationalists like David Duke during Donald Trump’s political rise, questioning why such focus was absent during Barack Obama’s presidential tenure:
Maybe I live in a bubble, where black people and white people actually get along everyday. … Everybody involved in this fake racial war is a loser.
Since last year’s political rise of Trump, left-wing and Democrat-aligned news media outlets have amplified their attempts to cast white racial nationalism as a powerful social force aligned with conservatism and the broader right.
