Candace Owens responded to New York to stand by Sarah Jeong,

Black conservative Candace Owens responded to New York Times' controversial decision to stand by their 'open bigot' employee, Sarah Jeong, who openly expressed how much she hates white people, by carrying out a 'thought experiment by replacing the word "white with "black."

Owen's though the experiment was to illustrate Jeong's animus:

Below is a sample of Jeong's controversial tweets

According to ZH: In response, Owens - communications director for activist group Turning Point USA, simply replaced "white" with Jewish and Black, then condensed Jeong's statements into several tweets, for which the Twitter police banned her for 12 hours:

As the Daily Caller noted on Sunday, Twitter says the ban was in error;

Twitter on Sunday suspended Owens’ account for 12 hours, citing her tweet about Jewish people as a violation of Twitter rules.

Twitter restored Owen’s access following a sharp backlash. The social media company chalked up Owens’ suspension as an “error.”

“Twitter takes reports of violations of the Twitter Rules very seriously,” Twitter’s support team wrote in an email to Owens, who shared it with TheDCNF. “After reviewing your account, it looks like we made an error.”

“This was our mistake and we’ve apologized to the account owner for the error,” a spokeswoman for Twitter told TheDCNF. The spokesperson did not say whether a human content monitor or an algorithm was responsible for suspending Owens’ account. -Daily Caller

Owens told Breitbart she thinks Twitter was correct to suspend her!

“I actually AGREE with Twitter” said Owens, in a comment to Breitbart News. “These tweets are an example of hateful conduct. It begs the question — why was it okay when the hate was directed at White people? Why are her tweets still up?”

“In every way imaginable — Twitter has just proved my point. Racism in this country has been sanctioned against white people.”

After word of the suspension began to go viral on social media, Twitter reversed itself and reinstated Owens’ account. -Breitbart

Was Candace also suspended for her response to Hillary Clinton's recent defense of Lebron James, who President Trump recently dissed over Twitter after James criticized Trump for fueling racial divides in the U.S.?

Meanwhile, The Times has chosen to stand by Jeong - claiming that she was simply imitating other racists.

Perhaps someday Twitter will let us in on what consitutes racism and harassment - since the goal posts seem to be all over the place depending on who said what.
