The latest episode of the Young Americans is brought to you by Ricochet (of course), and by the concept of ownership: of libs, an increasingly popular posture on the right, including among young conservatives, and of homes, which young people are apparently not buying. The Young Americans attempt to explore and explain both of these trends, while learning in the end that what mattered most was the friends they made along the way. (Awww…)

We Should Be Celebrating Candace and Carol, Not Kanye


For years we’ve wanted to see more African American conservatives who aren’t afraid to speak up for the cause.

Candace Owens is the Director of Communications for Turning Point USA. She explains what the organization stands for: fiscal responsibility, limited government, and free markets. She travels all over the country, encouraging people to dialogue with her and consider joining a TPUSA campus affiliate or form their own group. She is fearless, outspoken, and convincing. Many things that she says serve to empower black Americans.
