Former Single Ladies star, Stacey Dash has been very vocal about her support for Republican presidential nominee. When the actress first informed her tweeps that she’d be voting for Romney in November, many of her followers immediately objected. A large contingent of black folks took Dash to task for supporting the GOP candidate instead of President Obama, but Dash was committed.

Dash recently tweeted a photo of herself with vice presidential nominee, Paul Ryan. The tagline? “Fighting the good fight. Godspeed.”

 

The actress took to her blog to explain further.

I am an American citizen, who exercised her first Amendment right.

I am self realized and believe that hard work and faith will allow me to achieve my American dream.

I believe that Governor Mitt Romney believes in the American people. That we can be self evident, that we are capable of achieving the American dream. That there is enough for everyone. I believe that because he has proven his ability to lead,and his ability to be excellent as a CEO and as the Governor of Massachusetts. Governor Romney is the best choice to be our next President. He has achieved the American dream, he knows how to lead us the American people to realize our potential. By creating 12 million jobs, giving equal work for equal pay,by giving incentives and cutting loopholes, by keeping us safe and strong as a country of Super Power.

Yes, it is true, he is rich. So what better person to lead us to economic prosperity than someone who has attained it.

I believe that his faith and strong moral character WILL serve him very well as he Leads us to being the great UNITED STATES OF AMERICA we can be.

While many, like Vivica Fox, criticized Dash for her political views, Whoopi Goldberg spoke up in her defense.

Goldberg told The View audience: “In America, where we all live we have the right to say, ‘Listen, I have a different opinion’ — without having some bonehead sitting in their house talking about, ‘You should be thinking like I think.’ No! That’s not America.”

We agree.

    Stacey Dash is a bombshell of a woman and that is not in contention here. But who allowed her to go outside with that dress? Boo boo, no. It has poor judgement written all over it.

  • It’s posts like this that continually make this election about voting for Race and not about who you think will get the job done by gaining knowledge about the issues at stake. I don’t care who she votes for, as long as she is votes! It should not be news that a Black person is voting Republican.

      I echo those who express exhaustion at this sentiment. Child, let me repeat it over again, because I sincerely believe you do not live in a bubble and REASONABLE people must have shared this with you in the past. Black people have been voting for Democrats en masse waaaay before Obama entered the picture. A clear majority of black people have come to the conclusion that the Democratic party and its platform is more in line with the ideals of a majority of black people. To assume that all black people who are voting for Obama are voting because of his race, is just as stupid as voting for someone simply because of their skin color. I personally don’t remember people marching and standing in lines in order to support Herman Cain, who is African American, married to an African American, and was raised by African Americans
      Your comments make it seem as if to be black and to be a voter means that you do not think before voting.
      Are there black people who vote on race? Yeah, perhaps. Is it a novelty when we meet that six percent of the African American race that doesn’t vote Democrat – yeah. If I saw a Zebra in the middle of Wyoming, I’d do a double-take too.
      Dash is entitled to her opinions and like Whoopi, I have nothing against that. However, when you see a D-list actress in some loud-ass Dots dress talking about “Fighting the Good Fight,” with fellow one-percenters, you can’t help but wonder what’s up.
