Candace Owens, political activist and social media star, reveals many reasons why the Democratic Party policies hurt, rather than help, the African American community, and why she and many others are turning to the right.
During Donald Trump's presidential campaign, he posed the question, "What do you have to lose?" to potential black voters. While his comment was mocked and criticized by the mainstream media, Candace Owens and many others saw it as a wake-up call. She was a staunch Democrat for all her life, and was just starting to question the left's policies toward black Americans, and investigate the damage they have on the community.
In Blackout, Candace Owens addresses many ways that liberal policies and ideals are actually hurting African Americans and hindering their ability to rise above poverty, live independent and successful lives, and be an active part of the American Dream. Along the way, she shares her personal story of how she went from the projects to the White House, and shows how she overcame her setbacks and challenges despite the cultural expectation to embrace a victim mentality.
Owens argues that:
- Government assistance is a double-edges sword
- The Left dismisses the faith that's important to the black community
- Abortion disproportionately affects black babies
- #MeToo movement hurts black men
- And more
Well-researched and intelligently argued, Blackout counters the myth that blacks should vote Democrat, and reveals why turning to the right will make them happier, more successful, and more self-sufficient.
