Blackout Summary


Blackout - 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.

    Candice does a great job of intertwining her life experiences into the book to explain her positions. More importantly, she uses facts and historical events to substantiate and explain her viewpoints. If you enjoy watching Candice, you will love this book.

    This book was great. I read it as part of a book club. We had all political affiliations within the book club and by the end we all agreed, that Dem run city’s are really bad. We also agreed that the manipulation of Black Americans continues. No one is a victim and we are all empowered to have whatever success we want in life with hard work.

    Wow ! To read Candace’s points of view and personal opinions and factual research has opened my mind and heart when it comes to Politics and views on current issues. I am proud to be an American! I have some debatable topics of which I don’t agree on but my mind is def not closed when she discussed a lot of racial issues , specifically for black Americans such as myself. I look forward to reading a few other politicians books now or digging deeper into educating myself on what is happening or that has happened in our world.
