10 Black Celebs Who Got Rich And Forgot That Race Matters


"House Arrest" Behind The Scenes Sneak Peek

Stacey Dash

Stacey Dash has gone on record several times expressing views that many would consider out of touch with the Black community.

During the 2012 presidential election, Dash was a vocal supporter of the Republican candidates Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, and she rushed to Paula Deen’s defense last year after the celebrity chef became embroiled in the “N-word” scandal.

These acts don’t intrinsically put Dash in the racially unconscious category, but then the 46-year-old actress went on to blast Oprah Winfrey for drawing a parallel between the tragic murders of 17-year-old  Trayvon Martin and 14-year-old Emmett Till.

“If you aren’t careful, The newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed and loving the people who are doing the oppressing ~ Malcolm X,” Dash tweeted, before adding, “Shame on you @oprah.”

It’s not clear who Dash was implying were the “perpetrators of oppression” in the Martin and Till cases.
