Stacey Dash regrets voting for Obama 'because he was black'
Actress Stacey Dash continued to promote her newfound conservatism during a recent appearance on Fox News’ Hannity.
She participated in a segment bashing the Obama administration for suing the state of Louisiana over its school voucher program, which they argue is discriminatory.
The former Single Ladies and Clueless star received widespread criticism, especially within the black community, for her endorsement of the Mitt Romney-Paul Ryan ticket during the 2012 election.
Dash claims that she supported President Obama back in 2008 “because he was black,” and now she regrets her choice.
“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 told host Sean Hannity. “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.”
The 46-year-old is currently working on an autobiography entitled Not Black Enough.
