Publisher's Summary

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 to 1600 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.

A Contemporary Masterpiece!

Candace covers a wide range of topics and uses logic, reasoning, statistics and personal and public Accounts that will rock some people's worldview and will challenge conservatives to continue the struggle. It is very thought-provoking, very well written, and should be studied and discussed by all.

A worthy, non-mainstream take

I’ll start by saying that, politically, I’d consider myself a moderate. As such, I try to listen to ideas on both sides and see what makes sense to me. That’s the main reason I picked this one up. I’d heard of Owens before but had never really consumed any of her content. Thus, I was curious to learn more about her here.

Though I don’t agree with everything she says in this book, I do think she presents a fairly legitimate counter view of what’s often fed to us through mainstream media. Her discussions here attempt to change our perspectives on topics such as socialism, handouts, and victimization.

Being a person of privilege, I really can’t say how correct or incorrect she is in her arguments — I can only say they seem logical and well-researched. The one that resonated with me the most was her denouncement of socialism. There, she says our pursuit of it has pushed us to give up our faith in exchange for faith in big government (and that such a pursuit has had large, unintended consequences).

There are many other interesting arguments that she makes here as well, many of which, I think, hold water. Thus, overall, I’ll say I thought this was a refreshing and stimulating book. Moreover, and in that light, I'd recommend it to those on the right or in the middle.

Thought provoking!

I love this book. As a black women and conservative, I find this audiobook highly fascinating, thought provoking & meticulously well spoken. Far too often black women voters are a forgone conclusion. When ladies, such as Candace and myself speak out about these issues, we are suppressed, bullied and threatened. It is time that more black women garner the courage to speak out and demand that our needs are met both interracially and intraracially.

a well needed book.

To make a prediction, this book will become school literature in the future. This book will stand the test of time. Its historical and factual. It is a must read. Candice narratives it beautifully. I strongly recommend it. If you're active in online arguments and social debates, this book contains an arsenal of material. Ten out of Ten.

This woman should be President

She is, in my eyes up there with Martin Luther King. A strong hero, helping people to open eyes to what is going on in respect to black people in the West. I'm from the UK and this is as relevant here as it is in the USA.

A must listen/read.

Life changing book

Yes I as a Latino have exited the democratic plantation 3 years before reading this book and have opened my eyes to many of the ugly truths in this book, yet I’d argue that anyone even someone in my republican condition and mindset should read this book. Candace Owens had no problem prying my eye lids open for 7 hours and revealing the true depth of what democratic policies dark natures are. It has also changed my life after 3 years of being a non practicing Christian after hearing her chapters specifically chapter 1 and chapter 9 on faith I have contacted a close evangelical friend of mine and we have set a plan for me to explore my faith again. Thank you Candace Owens!
