    Daily Wire host Candace Owens on Tuesday defended her friend Kanye West after the pair sparked a Twitter meltdown for donning shirts with the phrase "White Lives Matter" emblazoned on the back at West's Paris fashion show.

    Owens, a fierce critic of the Black Lives Matter movement and, more generally, the Democratic Party, said outrage should not be sourced by a shirt that says white lives matter, but over real threats to the black community, like abortion, obesity, the breakdown of the family, and black-on-black crime - which the author described as a "racist" "truth."

    "If 'black lives matter,' then some of these things that we have been talking about on this show, things I've been talking about throughout my entire political career, would be getting attention, not the t-shirt," Owens said on her podcast Tuesday.

    The host first outlined the devastation abortion has caused for the black community in particular. "Just so we are clear, abortion in America has contributed to the greatest decline in black population since the first black slaves arrived," Owens asserted, adding that "20 million black babies" have been killed by abortion.

    "For whatever reason, since we have convinced ourselves to genocide our own offspring, nobody cares," she continued. "In fact, they tell you that it is your right [to abort] ... 20 million black babies, and yet a t-shirt is what got attention last night."

    "In 2012, more black babies were killed by abortion in New York City than were born," Owens said, noting the placement of Planned Parenthood abortion clinics near minority communities.

    Obesity, too, is a top killer for all Americans, especially black women. "It's the number one killer in America," she said, before snarking, "I know Black Lives Matter told you it was police shootings."

    The BLEXIT founder then discussed "criminality." "No one wants to talk about criminality; people don't want to talk about black-on-black crime," she said.

    "Almost 40% of all of the homicide offenders in all of the United States," the mother of two said, "we're talking about 7% of the population is black men."

    "Let's not talk about that," Owens said. "In fact, let's call that racist to even acknowledge that truth, to talk about the ills in our own community."

    The host then moved on to the education crisis, specifically regarding black boys. Owens listed off a host of shocking statistics, including that "74% of black boys in California can't pass a basic reading exam."

    After recapping all the troubling issues she outlined, Owens mocked, "The real problem in black America is that Kanye and Candace put on a 'White Lives Matter' t-shirt. So, let's focus on that instead."
