Candace Owens is being dragged on Twitter for stating her opinions on the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer.
Four cops were fired from the police force on Tuesday, a day after Floyd, who is Black, died from asphyxiation when a white cop kneeled on his neck for nearly 8 minutes (brain death occurs in 4 minutes).
Owens, a conservative, pro-Trump activist, angered Black Twitter when she suggested Black people act like a "trained chimpanzee" every time a Black person is murdered by a non-Black person.
In a livestream on YouTube, Owens compared Black people to the Scottish people who have passed the English people in engineering, and in the sciences, "because they challenged themselves to be better, and not to be worse."
"They didn't pretend that somehow having a broken language, having broken-down families was a symbol of who we are. And that is so unique to Black America. I won't subscribe to it. People say that's how you have to be Black.
"'That's how you have to be Black'? Listen to your psychological conditioning. If to be Black, you can't speak in proper English, or you're 'acting white.' Right? To be Black, you instantly have to jump up like a fucking trained chimpanzee - excuse my language - like a trained chimpanzee every single time the media runs a story, and act angry, and riot, and talk about how pained you were to see this happen to Black people, but keep your mouth shut, right, when it happens Black-on-Black because if you talk about the Black-on-Black crime, you're a race traitor, right?"
