Candace Owens is a pretty polarizing figure even on the Right. But that doesn’t necessarily make her wrong about everything.
Yesterday, Owens noted that, statistically speaking, black men are responsible for more violent crimes against blacks and Asians:
The #1 violent offenders against black people are other black people.
The #1 violent offenders against Asian Americans are also black people.

She’s not making a judgment about black people. She’s not suggesting that all black people are violent. She’s merely stating facts and pointing out that the Left’s insistence on blaming white supremacy for violence against minorities is disingenuous.
But California congressional hopeful and — according to his bio — college history professor Liam O’Mara doesn’t agree with Owens. So he replied with a thoughtful, fact-based response.
Just kidding — he tweeted this:

Here’s a screenshot, juuuust in case it comes in handy later on:
“Yikes” is right, Liam.
This won’t end well for you dude.

Nor should it.
Being from the south, this is one of the most insulting things you could ever do to a person of color. We approach things like this with far more sensitivity due to our past, but let me tell you, that is racist and has no place in this country. In no way is that amusing.

My guess I you don't want a Congressional seat?

I find ironic a white man is trying to tell someone of color they’re apart of the KKK

It’s scary how comfortable you are sending this to a black woman. This is disgusting.

Only liberal privilege would make this tweet acceptable.

You should be wearing that.

That would certainly make much more sense.
Repugnant little man.

Candace Owens understandably has some thoughts about Liam O’Mara’s tweet:
How do we feel about Democrats sending photos of Ku Klux Klan hoods to black conservatives as an insult because I’m pretty sure—as my grandfather is still alive and breathing and suffered the REAL klansmen in his youth— that this is RACIST and you are a PIG for sending this. https://t.co/714CFuWYUs
