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.

Exceptionally written and beautifully articulated

This book has so much wisdom and intelligence throughout the pages. I completely enjoyed the Audible so much so that I have ordered the hard copy to have in my library. This young woman is a true inspiration to a growing population of people that are transitioning in to becoming free thinkers themselves. God bless Candace Owens.

Great read, well listen, lol, you get my point. 😘

First, I am biased, because Candace is the most wonderful thing after oxygen...but I can say objectively this is a great book...I just couldn't press that pause button. I will order the book, the moment it is available again on Amazon. History will remember Candace as the Leader of a new generation of black people, the Moses of her time, the one who led her people out of the democrat plantation to liberty, prosperity and freedom to dream and to become self sufficient. Under Donald J. Trump, the black community has a small window of opportunity to become financially and economically successful and independent, and I believe Candace is the one who will make us all realize that. love and admire this woman. You are simply the Best Candace, all the best and continued success.

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 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.

I thought I was a Democrat until now.

She hits every topic on the head. I see my self as Democrat and only downloaded to see what the other side has to say. I was blown away. Everything she said I wonder why I haven’t ever heard of this before. A great listen.

If you're interested in hearing the other side

I'm not even into politics but given our current climate.... Surprisingly it was a good listen! I didn't agree with some of her ideals but I was interested enough to keep listening ( I finished in less than 24 hours).
