Kanye West is reportedly designing a clothing line with the hopes of using it to encourage black voters to leave the Democrat party.

According to The Daily Wire:

Kanye West has taken his support for President Donald Trump one step further, designing a limited line of clothing encouraging black voters to leave the Democratic Party in a "Blexit."

The Hollywood Reporter and the New York Post report that West has debuted a number of "Blexit"- themed items, which tie back to a larger "Blexit" movement (not organized by West) encouraging black conservatives to be more vocal about their political ideology, and declare, openly, their intent to permanently abandon the Democratic Party.

The shirts come in "traffic cone orange," light green, lavender, and white, and bear either a "Blexit" logo or the words, "We Free." They all say "design by Kanye West," because of course they do.

 

According to Blexit's website, the name is a play on the "Brexit" movement that divorced the United Kingdom from the European Union (though that movement seems to be stalling and reversing). The group's mission statement boasts that Blexit "is a frequency for those who have released themselves from the political orthodoxy. It is a rebellion led by Americans wishing to disrupt the simulation of fear. Blexit is a renaissance. It is our formal declaration of independence."

Some of the shirts were handed out during the Young Black Leadership summit in Washington, D.C. and the "Blexit" movement plans to hold rallies in urban centers soon.
