Kanye West Designs Shirts Urging 'Black Exit' From Democratic Party

  /  10.28.2018

Kanye West is making a political statement with his fashion.

The rapper has designed a line of T-shirts supporting the “Blexit” or “Black Exit” campaign that encourages African-Americans to part ways with the Democratic Party. He debuted his designs Saturday (Oct. 27) at the Young Black Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C., a meeting of young black conservatives organized by Turning Point USA’s Candace Owens, who Kanye previously praised on social media.

West was not in attendance, but was there “in spirit,” according to Owens (via 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,” Owens told the crowd. “[West] has taken one of the boldest steps in America to open a conversation we have needed to have.”

Kanye West Designed Shirts

The West-designed shirts, available in colors salmon, lagoon blue, and orchid, include the phrases “Blexit” and “We Free,” and are available on ShopBlexit.com for $25-28.

West has been an outspoken supporter of Donald Trump. Earlier this month, he met with the President in the White House to discuss prison reform, mental health, and Colin Kaepernick.

Despite his support for Trump and “Blexit,” West recently revealed that he donated $73,000 to the campaign of Chicago Democratic mayoral hopeful Amara Enyia.
