A video from 2019 of conservative commentator Candace Owens and rapper T.I. engaging in a highly contentious debate about Black America is going viral due to the current situation of Black Lives Matter protests taking place all across the United States.
T.I. and Owens had a heated exchange over President Trump. Owens is an outspoken supporter of the president, while T.I., for lack of a better word, is not.
T.I. asked Owens, “When you say Make America Great Again, which period are we talking about?…[Is it] the period when women couldn’t vote? The period when we were hanging from trees? The crack era? Which period in America are you trying to make great again?”
Owens responded by saying, “I actually think that I would totally rock a hat right now that says Make Black America Great Again.”
The debate took place at music mogul Diddy’s ‘REVOLT Summit’ in Atlanta in September 2019.
According to the event’s official Facebook page, The REVOLT Summit “invites artists, executives and cultural leaders to engage in conversations that explore the impact and influence of Hip Hop.”
