Candace Owens, Kanye West’s new bestie, claims that racism is no longer an issue—was that before or after her family won a lawsuit for $37,500 from the Stamford (Conn.) Board of Education as a result of racism? Perhaps the board should ask for a refund.
(The Root) - In 2016, Owens wrote an open letter to the Stamford Advocate sharing how racial slurs and death threats from classmates drove her to an eating disorder and therapy. In this open letter she said, “Those words destroyed me. I held my head high at school, but I went home and I cried every single night.” In another interview she told the Connecticut Post it took her seven years to move past the incident, “[When something like that happens] you become hostile. You become bitter.”
