Political activist and social media star Candace Owens explains all the reasons how the Democratic Party policies hurt, rather than help, the African American community, and why she and many others are turning right.
What do you have to lose? This question, posed by then-presidential candidate Donald Trump to potential black voters, was mocked and dismissed by the mainstream media. But for Candace Owens and many others, it was a wake-up call. A staunch Democrat for all of her life, she began to question the left’s policies toward black Americans, and investigate the harm they inflict on the community.In Blackout, social media star and conservative commentator Owens addresses the many ways that liberal policies and ideals are actually harmful to African Americans and hinder their ability to rise above poverty, live independent and successful lives, and be an active part of the American Dream. Weaving in her personal story that brought her from the projects to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, she demonstrates how she overcame her setbacks and challenges despite the cultural expectation that she should embrace a victim mentality.
Owens argues that government assistance is a double-edged sword, that the left dismisses the faith so important to the black community, that Democratic permissiveness toward abortion disproportionately affects the black babies, that the #MeToo movement hurts black men, and much more. 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.
Candace Owens was born in Stamford, Connecticut. She attended the University of Rhode Island for three years to study journalism before leaving to work in New York City. Owens worked in fashion, followed by private equity for four years before launching a website to combat cyberbullying in 2016. The effort was met with unexpected controversy.
As a result of the pressures and criticism her start-up faced, Candace became more active in the world of politics, particularly in the context of social media being used as a method of political manipulation.
Candace's authentic, fearless, and often countercultural statements have positioned her as a prominent figure in the current cultural dialogue. Candace is particularly dedicated to advocating for independent thinking among minorities after discovering that minorities' best interests are often subordinated to political party agendas. https://blexitfoundation.org/
