Kanye West is determined to bring more Black folks over to his side of the aisle, as the rapper and Trump supporter has designed for a clothing line made to encourage Black democrats to leave the party.
Led by conservative pundit Candace Owens, the line known as Blexit is described as, “a frequency for those who have released themselves from the political orthodoxy.”
Owens shared with Page Six, “Blexit is a renaissance and I am blessed to say that this logo, these colors, were created by my dear friend and fellow superhero Kanye West.”
The Chicago producer created two designs for Owens’ brand, including one that spells out “Blexit” in lettering designed to resemble human forms while the other states, “We free”.

Owens took to Instagram shortly after the designs made their debut at this weekend’s Young Black Leadership Summit.
“BLEXIT= the Black Exit from the Democrat Party,” Owens clarified. “We are AMERICANS, first and foremost. Republicans are NOT racist— they are our American brothers and sisters and we will fight alongside them to fix our broken communities, absent the politics of fear.”
