Kanye West is reportedly behind the design of a T-shirt urging black people to leave the Democratic Party, a movement dubbed "Blexit."

The designs turned up Saturday at Turning Point USA's "Young Black Leadership Summit," a meeting of young black conservatives in Washington, the New York Post reported.

"Blexit is a renaissance, and I am blessed to say that this logo, these colors, were created by my dear friend and fellow superhero Kanye West," said TPUSA's communications director Candace Owens, the Post reported — praising West for taking "one of the boldest steps in America to open a conversation we have needed to have."

The shirts were part of a broader launch of Blexit.com, Owens' new website that seeks to draw black people away from the Democratic Party, The Root reported.

Owens promised a Blexit tour to cities including Chicago and Philadelphia next year.

"The Blexit movement will spend 2019 holding rallies in every major city in America that the Democrats have destroyed," she said, the Post reported.
