After being attacked by the black community for publicly endorsing GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Stacey Dash is relentless in her efforts to show unwavering support for Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan.

The actress recently took to her Twitter page to tweet a picture of she and vice presidential candidate Ryan with the words “Fighting the good fight. Godspeed.” Knowing that criticism would shortly follow her picture and caption, she wrote a longer tweet further defending her support of the Romney-Ryan ticket:

 

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.

When critics slammed Stacey for supporting Romney-Ryan, reputable scholar and entrepreneur Dr. Watkins defended her decision and said he was ‘disappointed’ in people’s inability to have political free choice without being heavily criticized. In an article titled “Stacey Dash Learns: If You’re Black and Don’t Support Obama, You’re Going to be Tortured” Dr. Watkins wrote:

I was shocked and disappointed by the fact that the woman couldn’t get a sentence out without being booed down by people who felt that she was some kind of sellout for not supporting President Obama.  They didn’t want to hear her arguments, because some of us fear even considering a point of view that might cause us to change our minds.  When I saw how the crowd reacted to this woman for simply stating her opinion, that’s when I knew we were headed into very dangerous territory.
