  • Actress Stacey Dash faced a massive amount of criticism last year for coming forward to publicly endorse Mitt Romney and now is voicing her political views once again.

    Dash told Fox News recently that she “naively” voted for President Obama while he was running for his first term “because he was black.”

    “I didn’t know anything about [Obama] when I voted for him in 2008. My choice to do so was purely because he was black,” she admitted. “Naively, I thought he would be the right person for the job but unfortunately it didn’t turn out that way. Obama had the opportunity to really unite this country in such a profound way, but instead he has done the opposite. We are so divided right now, everything has become about race, more than I’ve ever known in my lifetime.”

    Interestingly race is the topic of discussion in her new autobiographical book “Not Black Enough.” The actress took her anti-Obama campaign over to Fox News’ “Hannity With Sean Hannity” and openly criticized the Obama Administration for the decision to sue the state of Louisiana over its current school voucher system.

    “I’m saying deny a child education because of the color of their skin. That’s absurd,” the South Bronx native said to host Sean Hannity. “You know, the natural evolution of a well-educated populous is integration. And this is not political, it’s not theoretical, it’s not even partisan.”

    “It’s personal. You know, I was one of those children. I went to a failing school, and by the grace of God, my mother was able to put me into private school, and had she not, I would probably be in a gang or dead right now, because that was the road I was going down. So what they’re doing is immoral.”

    1. If Stacey Dash thinks that President Obama created the division of the races with any of his policies then slavery never happened. There was no Hitler, skinheads. No KKK. What she really needs to do is focus on what she does best.

    2. Stacy Dash is a butt kissing loving TOM for racists. She needs to get a life and stop thinking that white folks are going to embrace her. How can President Obama brings the country together when you have every racist in the country working against him. Just look at the GOP. Stacy Dash go jump in the LAKE!!!!!!!!

      • Stacy, wake up and smell the coffee, the president did not bring about all of this hate out there now. The haters and the haters, are the cause. If the president had some back up he could do great things. I suggest to all that are reading and writing and tweeting and face booking make sure that when mid-terms come around, we vote all of these suckers out of office and get the president some support and help. View the candidates good and make a decision and make sure we have democratic support in all aspects so when the major election comes around we will have a decent candidate. Boo on Stacey and all other haters.

    3. Wow I didn’t see white people apologizing when the 2 white guys was running for President Clinton and Bush about who they voted for. Boy we are stupid. White woman wanted Hiliary to run because she was a white female and they wanted someone who looked like them in office. I don’t see them apologizing for that. Nobody cared who we voted for when the white guys were running for President and we wouldn’t dare ask a white man which white guy was he voting for. Stacy why hasn’t anyone gotten you a job in the Republican party. Those same white guys you are defending are not paying you any attention. Yes my dear you are CLUELESS. The election is OVER!!!!!! If this is what private school produces thank God I went to public school.

    4. Stacey need to let go and move on. The election is over girl. A lot of black people voted for president Obama because we a keenly aware of the contempt the other party has for people of color.

    5. Blacks vote for democrats the majority of the time regardless of the candidates position on gay, marriage, abortion, the economy, school vouchers, etc. It doesn’t matter just have a (D) before your name and you get the vote. Also, many blacks were Hillary supporters before they supported Pres Obama. In the next election the democratic candidate will get 89-95% of the black vote regardless of their positions or whether they are green, blue, purple or glow the dark.

    6. and i made the mistake of buying a few dvd ‘s with you trying to act in the movie .this has been need to go sit down and count the pennies her last white husband left her after he dropped kicked her

    7. She just got used by Fox. Stacey thinks that every time she sees a camera, she still shooting the film clueless. That girl is really crazy.

    8. She is full of IT!!! I did not go to a Private Institution and I turned out just fine!!! People at FOX News could care less about the less fortunate remember Hurricane Katrina!!! GOH!!!

    9. Stacey Dash needs a reality check if she believes in her heart of hearts that President Obama could bring together this totally racist country. The elephant in the room – the election of a Black man to the highest office of one of the most powerful nations in the world where we fight for racial equality and humanitarianism in other countries and the same qualities are failings here. President Obama’s election only shown the spotlight on one thing – the hatred and disdain White America still harbors for Blacks. And if Stacey has not realized it yet – she is still Black!

      • Peeps let’s be honest with ourselves, who among us actually studied the positions of the candidates and voted based on those aligned beliefs? Stacey is just keeping it real. Bless her honesty.

        • AGREE!! Because Stacey said it, it makes makes people a little more defensive and have an attitude about it. We haven’t heard anything from Stacey in a while, so I’m sure this statement was made in part to try to keep some publicity on her. Doesn’t seem like she is getting too many any TV/Movie roles that I know of. Keep it real ya’ll, you know a LOT of black people voted for Barack JUST because he was black and they wanted to be apart of making history getting him elected. Maybe a select few of US voted for him because of his policies or political party, but the majority I would say because he was black. I’ll bet if he was white, but otherwise the same candidate (policies/party, etc), he would not have won the way he did. Possibly wouldn’t have won at all. Black people possibly wouldn’t have came out the way that they did. Something to think about. I’m not saying for sure, but I wonder. Hmmmm

        • I did, and I’m sure many others did as well. It’s her own fault that she voted the way she did. Since Kennedy, blacks have overwhelmingly voted Democratic. When Democrats finally field a black candidate, ALL blacks voted for him simply because he was black. How stupid! As another poster rightly noted, many whites didn’t vote for him because he was black. Yet this isn’t talked about in the media, because it isn’t considered newsworthy. Yet Stacey feels a black voting for a black President is? Who gives a crap! I’m sick and tired of cow towing to white folks – always feeling that we have to justify our actions or who we are to them. They are just as delusional, crazy, lazy and violent as they claim us to be. We don’t need their approval or acceptance. We need to stop explaining whatever it is we choose to do with them, and we to stop being their lackeys to justify their ignorant stereotypes of us.

        • Sorry, part of my last sentence should have read: “and we need to stop being their lackeys to justify their ignorant stereotypes of us.”

      • Even if Stacey voted for Obama because he is black, think about who then and who now has the American people’s interest at heart. Certainly not the Republicans. If these people did not have anger/racism in their hearts already, it certainly wouldn’t be coming out the way it is.

    10. Stacey Dash and her career are irrelevant. I had forgotten that she even made those statements until I stumbled across this article.

    11. On October 18th the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is going to announce plans for a United Black bank to buy farmland, factories and to create jobs. I believe that this information is much to important not to be mentioned on this site that supposedly represents black America.

    12. Let’s see if those FOX viewers will help put her book on the best sellers list. I don’t think they really care about her issue with not fitting in on either side.
