The British Idiom – Blacklist
Definition of Blacklist
A blacklist is a list of persons or organisations that are held in suspicion or are considered to be untrustworthy, and thus disapproved of, and who cannot gain any of the advantages that ordinary people enjoy from the organisation that has drawn up the blacklist. To be placed on such a blacklist is to be blacklisted.
