Langauge and words have specific meaning.

To be blacklisted means that you cannot work, cannot pursue your livelihood.

Kazan has worked successfully for his entire life.

Further, most of those prosecuted under the blacklist were totally innocent and
never did the things they were accused of doing. No one has ever said that
Kazan didn't name names.
