In general, a blacklist is a list of people or organizations suspected of crimes or of activities to undermine the society. In the case of the witch-hunt against communism in the McCarthy era, the blacklist consisted of people and organizations suspected of communist and anti-American sympathies. The original blacklist was drawn up by Senator McCarthy, but he forced people to add their own blacklists to his - and some did not even need much forcing, such as Ronald Reagan, the later US President. His blacklist meant the end of the careers of a great number of his Hollywood fellow-actors and movie makers.

In the end, a Congressional Committee scrutinized the blacklists and found them to be " a tissue of fabrications". It meant the end of McCarthy's career.

Blacklist who were most likely to be named on these lists?

North America specific: A blacklist is when Buisnesses keep lists of people who they do not want to work with. Well yes; alot of buisness owners were racist, they did not put actual blacks on the black list normally, because it either was not necessary, or they did not feel compelled to make racism a consistent policy . The most famous case of blacklisting was the way many movie studios blacklisted actors suspected of communist sympathy, refusing to provide work to Charley Chaplin and others.
