Book Description

March 6 2012
This country is at a crossroads. We can either reverse direction or nosedive into a cycle of dependency that is turning America into a welfare nation—a “government plantation” where the underclass are doomed to 21st-century servitude. Now, Deneen Borelli, one of the most visible and outspoken black conservatives in the country, is fighting back—taking action, not just talking—and speaking up for those who can’t or are too afraid to do so.

Borelli’s argument is a solid one: the problem begins with President Barack Obama, whose policy overreach has frozen racial tensions in this country when he should have been thawing them. The Left, having introduced the race card to defend Obama from the massive unpopularity of his policies, has turned a blind eye to the leadership failures that have spread down through black career politicians—traitors to minority success—who are causing a cycle of oppression in America: specifically Charles Rangel, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson, each of whom has enriched himself at the expense of his community. Borelli also challenges the ninety-five percent of the black Americans who voted for Obama without caring about or vetting his dangerous politics.

Borelli doesn’t stop there. She speaks out against the elites and crony capitalists who drive expensive government policies such as needless green initiatives and ObamaCare. She exposes government regulation and the NAACP as nothing more than a liberal front group. She points out each grave flaw in the current administration, big government, unions, and special-interest groups. She demands that new black leaders abandon the false rhetoric and inexcusable lies of so-called progressive politics. She asks the questions that people of all colors are afraid to ask, and delivers the honest, unyielding, and controversial answers that have made her the favorite of the left-wing firing squad.

Today, with taking a stand against Obama, comes the fear of being called a racist. There is no fear in Deneen Borelli. Her outspoken voice gives everyone the courage and ammunition needed to stand up against destructive progressive tyrants. She is a brave critic, bold and proactive—not reactive. Hers is a story a lot of people don’t want to hear—no matter how firmly they believe it to be true. Deneen Borelli is here to ignite a fire in independent-minded Americans. Blacklash is the fuse.



“I’m conservative. I believe in the power of the individual. I’m a freethinker, and I love my country. Yes, I’m also black, but that fact has nothing to do with my belief in limited government. I don’t like President Barack Obama’s progressive policies and his administration’s spending habits. But some people apparently think that my economic concerns shouldn’t supersede my racial allegiance.

“Nobody wants to be told they’re racist simply because they are too conservative to buy into Obama’s policies. People are too nervous to speak out, so I’m speaking out for them. We need change. We really do. We just can’t afford the kind that Obama and the Washington elites are currently advocating.”


—Deneen Borelli

Product Description


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. Well, I learned if you read enough from all sides, eventually you pick up on what is consistent from all stories: resulting in the truth.

Well, I think I walked a similar path - albeit less arduous and emotionally challenging - to Mrs. Borelli. I too believe that everyone should be granted the opportunity to succeed. What many confuse the word "opportunity" with is a guarantee. You deserve a chance just like anyone else to get what you want, but it DOES NOT mean you will get it. I learned that many Liberals feel as though they are "entitled" to things despite not working for them. I do not blame them for possessing this mindset as it is the people appointed over them that have influenced and brainwashed them into believing that they are owed some kind of debt as compensation for something that was suffered by people from 2, 3, and 4 generations ago.

Mrs. Borelli is a dedicated activist with the most genuine of intentions: to help the same people who chastize her to remove themselves from the "government plantation" and become truly free. She does not want the minority community to settle with living in a shadow of entitlements and collecting "Obamabucks", forever keeping them in a life of servitude and to depend on Nanny State politics to save them.

Again, to those of you who openly lash out at Mrs. Borelli, remember she is working for your freedom. She is fighting for your success, as well as the millions of minorities in the future. I can tell you right now, she is so much more of a guiding light than the Sharpton, Jackson, and others COMBINED!

5.0 out of 5 stars timely book written by a very brave woman March 6 2012
By dc2 - Published on
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...

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.
