By Candace Owens


Owens makes many bold claims, some truly horrifying and unfortunately true parts of our history. Still, I find some of her arguments to be overtly hyper-partisan and at times even confusing – attacks on ’neoliberalism’ being an example (are the Democrats neoliberals? I think not).

Still, Blackout is worth reading for a drastically different angle on the politics of race afflicting America. I don’t think it’s a book to be dismissed on its weaknesses – it is more important now than ever before to challenge critical race theories and a historical revisionism that repaints the Democratic party as the long-time ally of black America and the Republican party as natural foe.
