The Brief: Blexit is a movement led by Candace Owens that encourages black Americans to leave the Democratic Party.
A combination of the words “black” and “exit,” according to its website, Blexit’s official mission statement is:
WE FREE. BLEXIT is a frequency for those who have released themselves from the political orthodoxy. It is a rebellion led by Americans wishing to disrupt the simulation of fear. BLEXIT is a renaissance. It is our formal declaration of independence.
Blexit’s leader and founder Candace Owens is a pro-Trump conservative commentator and political activist.
#BLEXIT is a movement of bright colors and hope.
A message to minorities that we are not permanent victims, belonging to the Left.

News that Kanye West designed a merch fashion line for Blexit let him to clarify that he does not support the movement and announce that he would be moving away from politics.
