Thousands of people participated in a BLEXIT march in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, many of them wearing shirts that read "We the Free" and holding signs with messages that supported police and denounced the Black Lives Matter organization.

BLEXIT is a combination of the words "black" and "exit" and is a movement led by conservative commentator Candace Owens to encourage minority people in America to leave the Democratic party.

Owens organized the weekend event, which she said drew "2,000+ black and Latino Americans." She praised it as "a beautiful moment that the mainstream media won't report on." The march ended with people singing the national anthem and chanting "USA! USA!"

Support for law enforcement was the main focus of the march. Some demonstrators carried banners that read "Police Lives Matter," "Back the Blue," and "Expose BLM, Inc." Some people in the crowd were wearing "Make America Great Again" hats.
