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.

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...

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!

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.

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.

Deneen Borelli offers a unique political perspective that, until recently, has largely gone unspoken. Her argument is timely and encouraging as more and more African Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans are starting to publicly question the Democrat political machine than has been seen in recent history. Being Native American and having grown up on a reservation, I could easily understand the argument regarding the dangers a "nanny state" presents to minority populations and I really appreciated the fact that I could relate to this book on that kind of a personal level. Ms. Borelli presents an informed, intelligent, comprehensive, and perhaps more importantly, courageous critique. In our society we've seen time and time again how Africa Americans and other minorities are treated when they "step out of line" and question Democrats and their agenda so it's not hard to imagine how difficult it must have been for her to put herself out there like this. All in all this was a very refreshing look at the ongoing conservative vs. liberal debate.
