Actress Stacey Dash Gets Black Attacked for Endorsing Mitt Romney
Ooops! Before she endorsed Republican candidate Mitt Romney for president, actress Stacey Dash forgot to read the “black memo” that states all blacks must vote Democrat or else! When she tweeted the below with this patriotic photo of herself clad in a red bathing suit, Dash uncorked the racist rage from black Obama supporters:
What’s disturbing, but not surprising, is the incendiary tweets that ensued from blacks at Dash.
“RACIAL DRAFT: I LIKE TO REQUEST A TRADE TO SEND STACEY DASH TO THE CAUCASIANS TO ACQUIRE BILL CLINTON TO THE BLACKS”
Another tweeted: “We’ve been letting you slide for years! It’s OVER.”
Both suggested Dash wasn’t “really” black because she had the audacity to vote for Romney. Still another twitted “Stacey Dash had a perm since birth. . .I knew I couldn’t trust her.. Lol .”
The implication, always being brought back to race, is that Dash who has straight hair “thinks she’s white” and therefore can’t be trusted to be a true black, as evidenced by her Republican nature. (I also find it funny that white Liberals weigh in with shock and awe, as if blacks don’t have the right like whites to support different political parties.)
When a black person steps out of the black Democrat box that liberals have assigned blacks to and most blacks have accepted, personal attacks and name-calling, laced with profanity, usually ensues: sell out, oreo, you think you’re white, etc. I’ve never laid eyes on this “black memo” that warns blacks they must vote Democrat, but like Dash I have received a heap of hate mail mostly from other blacks, questioning my authentic blackness because I choose to be a Republican.
Engaging in this gutter level name-calling aimed at black conservatives makes other blacks look ignorant, particularly of their history. A friend told me it’s not worth writing about the history of blacks and the Republican Party because that’s old news. I disagree.
Many blacks need to a reminder that after the Civil War, it was the Republican party that won passage of the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments and Republicans were instrumental getting the Civil Rights Act passed. Frederick Douglass and Booker T. Washington were both Republicans.
During Reconstruction, thanks to the help of Republicans many blacks were elected to offices. The first blacks elected to Congress were: Sen. Hiram Revels (R-MI), Rep. Benjamin S. Turner (R-AL), Rep. Robert DeLarge (R-SC), Josiah Walls (R-FL), Jefferson Long (R-GA), Joseph Rainey and Robert B. Elliott (R-SC). Until 1960s, many blacks voted Republican.
A black woman tweeted Dash would regret voting for Romney because she “thinks Mitt Romney won’t cut off them unemployment checks she’s receiving. Wrong again ma’am.” The notion implied here is not only that blacks want welfare checks but also that welfare policies have benefited blacks is ridiculous.
The breakdown of the black family is the root cause of blacks economic slide downward, something Mitt Romney wants to fix by encouraging marriage. In 1964, 23% of black babies were born out of wedlock, today it’s 73% and 55% of all federal prisoners are black and half of murder victims are black and of those 85% are black males. These are grim statistics for a race that represents only about 13% of the population.
President Obama isn’t serving up a great black agenda to address the problems keeping black Americans from advancing up the economic ladder. In fact, Obama’s policies have disproportionately harmed blacks. The black jobless rate at 13.4% is almost twice the national average of 7.8%.
After being barraged by what can only be described as a rain of insults and ignorance, Dash tweeted, “My humble opinion… EVERYONE is entitled to one.” Yes, ALL Americans, even black people are entitled to different political opinions. Maybe if more blacks start examining Obama’s record, they would realize they too have a choice.
