Summary:

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.

    Owens is in full blame mode the entire book. Her clear and primary goal is to appease folks that already believe what she is saying, and they just need a black friend to say it with them. She goes in to no detail regarding how conservatives are making things better, what they (or her) can offer in terms of goals, strategies, or even positive advice. Try harder. Get a father. That's all the advice she has to offer. At the beginning of the book, Owens declares that we need respect and manners, to stop being victims, and have faith. That's what her Grandpa taught her. At the end of the book, she declares that we need Trump, because he doesn't respect anyone and that's what we need. Nevermind his own struggles with victim mentality and obvious lack of faith. Owens is articulate and educated, which leads me to wonder, why did she write this book? I have to admit that 3/4 of the way through, I decided to finish because maybe she was saving her advice or at least give us a glimpse into what her and other conservatives are doing to help. Rest assured, she offers nothing of substance, a literal talking head. This book is composed of her using a statistic she found, then directly attacking the liberals, or lying outright and claiming that the modern Dems are the very same slave owners and kkk of the past. What I did learn from this book is that she is not willing to offer actual, useful information or support for improving this country for anyone. Attack without evidence, shut down the conversation, profit. I guess.

    Anyone who gives this a one star is biased and can't recognize learning from new perspectives.

    Chapters including LBJ and the "myth" about the Great Society. Our erosion into "universal humanistic values" and falling away from traditional black religious values, to the influence of song lyrics in Black culture, all blend to present an insightful ridicule of liberal thought. Candice Owens speaks clearly and defiantly about the hypocrisy within the Democratic party. Owens is a better writer than narrator, however. Some words mispronounced. Excusable. The message is way more important.

    I loved this book. It's daring and it's eye opening. I don't necessarily agree with 100% of the content (when it comes to the ancient history part) but I still enjoyed and learned a lot listening to this audiobook. Candace Owen is amazing!
