Stupidity and intolerance from the Left is not more acceptable than that coming from the Right.
From a Yahoo article:
Actress Stacey Dash was attacked with negative tweets after voicing her support of Mitt Romney on Twitter over the weekend. Many comments were racially charged and others suggested the star of the 1990s hit ‘Clueless’ should just “kill herself.”
One man wrote, “This hurts, but you a Romney lover and you slutting yourself for the white man only proves why no black man would marry u.” Another Twitter user said: “She’s an indoor slave, you know that, sis.” Many tweetsexpressed disbelief that a woman of African American heritage would vote for anyone but Obama, and some suggested that her account must have been hacked.
The backlash began on Sunday, after Dash tweeted “Vote for Romney: The only choice for your future,” along with a provocative photo of herself wearing a red Baywatch-style tank suit standing in front of an American flag. “Kill yourself you old hag…” a Twitter users lashed out. “The only choice for your future.” Another wrote, “You’re an unemployed black woman endorsing @MittRomney. You’re voting against yourself thrice. You poor beautiful idiot.”
Come on people. True progress is when people of any ethnicity or color can voice their opinions and even choose to be totally different in a choice than most people expect them to be. Whether one agrees with Dash, who by the way is of mixed African-American and Mexican roots, she should be free to pick her own sides, regardless of her her background or gender.
