Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

It’s time for a black exit.

Political activist and social media star Candace Owens addresses the many ways that Democrat Party policies hurt, rather than help, the African American community, and why she and many others are turning right.

Black Americans have long been shackled to the Democrats. Seeing no viable alternative, they have watched liberal politicians take the black vote for granted without pledging anything in return. In Blackout, Owens argues that this automatic allegiance is both illogical and unearned.

She contends that the Democrat Party has a long history of racism and exposes the ideals that hinder the black community’s ability to rise above poverty, live independent and successful lives, and be an active part of the American Dream. Instead, Owens offers up a different ideology by issuing a challenge: It’s time for a major black exodus. From dependency, from victimhood, from miseducation—and the Democrat Party, which perpetuates all three.

Owens explains that government assistance is a double-edged sword, that the Left dismisses the faith so important to the black community, that Democrat permissiveness toward abortion disproportionately affects black babies, that the #MeToo movement hurts black men, and much more. Weaving in her personal story, which ushered her from a roach-infested low-income apartment to1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, she demonstrates how she overcame her setbacks and challenges despite the cultural expectation that she should embrace a victim mentality.

Well-researched and intelligently argued, Blackout lays bare the myth that all black people should vote Democrat—and shows why turning to the right will leave them happier, more successful, and more self-sufficient.

    By uh:)...
    This has to be one of the worst books I have ever read, it is very bias and it is predominantly lies about minorities in America.

    Candace’s passion for a better American, especially Black Americans, is palpable in every issue she’s discussed. But I was disappointed for the lack of tangible solutions. Faith and voting for Republicans are far form the real solutions solving the problems for Black Americans, which are the problems for all Americans.
  • Must read!

    Facts are facts and until Black America does some homework and looks at things from BOTH sides of the issues and deals with factual information, the racial divide will never be repaired. All the gains we have seen the four years under Trump have been wiped out in a few short months by the Media, Antifa, Black Lives Matter, Pelosi, Schumer, Shiff, Soros, Covid and now Biden/Harris. They single handedly took us back 20 years! Think about where we could have been in 2024! The hatred for Trump canceled progress made in three years that no president since Reagan made. Be honest, don’t think of the person...just look at the facts. Look at the stats...and he did this with a constant gun to his head! Our country is in trouble and we are to stupid to see it! Excellent book and required reading.

    I’ll start off by saying that the only people that would leave a bad review on this book are people who haven’t read it and just want to hate and destroy Candace. If they could only be so articulate and data driven factual. But they can’t, as you can see by their reviews. It all speaks for itself. This is a brilliant woman that knows how to tell a story. The books is brilliant and eye opening. Actually read it and see for yourself.

    Wonderfully informative and eye opening! This books reveals so many details about history that get swept under the rug. A must read for everyone, no matter who you are or where you come from.
  • Wannabe “omorosa” replacement.

    The only predominate conservative voice in favor of trumps racist views on black culture. Just like she describes in all her hate filled interviews she is a pioneer in voicing in favor of suppression of minorities. Skip this book and watch her hateful interviews on qanon and other non news sites. In case your wondering who “Omorosa” is, she is a former trump supporter that praised trumps racist comments. She had a fall out with trump and Candace Owens swooped in and replaced her. Talk about type casting.
