Book Description

One of the most visible and outspoken black conservatives in the country stands up against the destructive progressive tyrants whose politics threaten to send America into a nosedive.

This country is at a crossroads. We can either reverse direction or become a welfare nation—a “government plantation” where the underclass are doomed to 21st-century servitude.

In this brave book, Deneen Borelli takes aim at the leadership failures of President Obama and other black career politicians whose faulty policies have caused a cycle of oppression in America. She demands that new black leaders abandon the false rhetoric and inexcusable lies of progressive politics. The Left introduces the race card to protect its key players, but Borelli boldly asks important questions that people of all colors are afraid to ask—and delivers the honest, unyielding answers that have made her a favorite target of the left-wing firing squad. It’s a critical story that a lot of people don’t want to hear—no matter how firmly they believe what she says to be true.


Editorial Reviews

Review

Few people have the spine or the character to take on the establishment. Deneen Borelli, fortunately, has plenty of both. BLACKLASH rips apart the rickety lies of self-styled African-American leaders and is an impassioned call for a community to break free of the progressive policies that hold them back from achieving the American Dream. --GLENN BECK

I would like to start off by saying that there is some confusion with some of the negative reviewers on this book. Now, whether it was that Deneen Borelli's message was lost in translation or you just didn't read the book, I think it needs to be clarified that - while she may be conservative - she is a black woman, which means that she is just as much aware of what her ancestors went through for her to receive the freedom she and all other minorities possess today.

In the book, she speaks of how she has been cast out by other minorities because the idea has been drilled into their heads that - if you are of minority descent - you are SUPPOSED to vote Democrat. I am a minority, and I too am of the Conservative mindset, and I shame those who think Mrs. Borelli, myself and anyone else in our position are traitors to our own race for believing in the preservation of our freedoms.

Many of you against this book are most likely operating from a liberal mindset, and that is fine, to each his own. That being said, do not assume that she is strictly pointing the finger at the Democrats and no one else. She makes it clear that it is not a matter of party politics: it is politics PERIOD that is ruining this country. What she contends - and I side with her on this - is that the minority (Blacks in particular) are receiving a raw deal as a result of the established entitlements.

I grew up in the Northeast, and naturally jumped on the Liberal bandwagon, but I was not always sure if that was the right position to take. I mean, how could I decide if I didn't know anything about opposing views. Everywhere you go, you find different interpretations of history. It makes one wonder if there is ever such a thing as an unbiased truth.

5.0 out of 5 stars timely book written by a very brave woman March 6, 2012
By dc2
Format:Kindle Edition
I am the first reviewer of this book. It's very sad how liberals are attacking this woman. What a double standard... As soon as an African American steps out of line, they get attacked by the left. She's right - what's the difference between making people slaves to the govt. and slaves to the plantation owner? "I can't get a job or I'll lose my welfare and food stamps" is a sad tag line for the entitlement society. It doesn't work, it never has worked- this mind set leads to disaster. We need to follow Ronald Reagan's example - create a structure where people have the choice to flourish on their own - not rely on a Govt. program to take care of them...

5.0 out of 5 stars Deneen Borelli Hit A Nerve March 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I pre-ordered this book and received it on my Kindle yesterday. What a great read. I am 75 pages in and this book will really strike a nerve with those that support the entitlement society. Deneen Borelli does a wonderful job of just laying out her case. She has a credible perspective that cannot be denied. So far I love this book! Thank you Deneen!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been so disappointed in how leaders in the black community have focused on victimization instead of empowerment. Deneen's message is long overdue. Thank you for your bravery, for your insight, for your inspiring message to measure a person by their character not their color. It's a message for ALL ethnic groups, for all skin colors, for all genders - be an individual not a member of a herd. Love this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! March 23, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is an outstanding book. I live and work in Memphis as a teacher. Everyday I witness the plantation mentality that Borelli describes in this book. On an almost daily basis, I've witnessed ninth grade girls who have had their second child, students verbalizing defeatist and victimized attitudes and the expectation that someone will take care of all of their needs. Regardless of the positive, "you are your own destiny" message I try to instill in my students, they are inundated with a culture of welfare that oppresses them. Thank you, Deneen Borelli, for being the courageous mouthpiece that is needed to bring about positive change.

5.0 out of 5 stars a clarion call March 19, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Deneen Borelli's book is a clarion call for cultural change among blacks in the US. Her recognition of the unrealized promise in the lives of many black Americans provides her with the inspiration and courage to take them to task as few others would dare to do.

Black Americans, she writes, "are a community of enormous potential and significance, capable of great things." And indeed they are. That's why it is so sad to see how many of them live - and have lived for generations - in dependence of the government.

"Blacklash" tries to answer the question why this is so. Why do people who are capable of great things not recognize and achieve their potential more often? What is it that holds them back?

To answer this question convincingly is to show black Americans a way to live up to their promise. And "Blacklash" does not hesitate to put the blame where it belongs:

1. The liberal establishment that sees the victimization of blacks as one of its most dependable sources of political power

2. Self-styled black leaders who build up careers by making sure that blacks remain cast in the mold of the victim

3. The inability of many black Americans to break free from the suffocating pattern of life that is provided for them by the welfare state

Deneen Borelli describes herself as a freethinker who believes in the power of the individual. And this is why she has the strength and courage to go against the entire liberal and black establishment. In her book she speaks to individuals and challenges them to free themselves from the dismal role that a power-hungry social elite has assigned to them as a group. She does not mince words.
