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.”
