found this in the news this morning. Makes me giggle that some people are so completely close minded and willing to throw insults because someone doesn't think the exact same way they do
TWITTER EXPLODES AFTER BLACK ACTRESS ENDORSES ROMNEY AS THE ‘ONLY CHOICE FOR YOUR FUTURE’
Actress Stacey Dash, who has starred in everything from the 90′s hit Clueless to CSI, prompted a firestorm on Twitter after publicly endorsing Republican nominee Mitt Romney, and then standing by her opinion.
“Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future. @mittromney @teamromney #mittromney #VOTE #voteromney,” Dash wrote on her official Twitter page, accompanied by a photo of herself with an American flag.
Not long after, presumed Obama supporters began insulting Dash for her opinion, saying she isn’t “black” enough, severaleven asking if the actress would just “kill herself.”
As news of Dash’s treatment spread, however, First Amendment-lovers nationwide began voicing their support for the actress using the hashtag#ISupportStaceyDash.
Twitchy captured some of the worst responses to Dash’s Romney endorsement (content warning):
And here are a few more (content warning):
But Dash was apparently undeterred by the cruel reaction, and sent a number of sarcastic responses to the worst offenders, wrote a tweet reminding that she is entitled to her own opinion, and– to top it off– re-tweeted a Romney campaign message.
“Women have had enough of @BarackObama’s disappointment. We need new leadership to get our economy growing again…” the re-tweeted message reads.
Here a few of the top #ISupportStaceyDash tweets:
And a few more:
“#ISupportStaceyDash regardless of whether she gets a phone call form
#Obama or not,” another wrote, highlighting the stark contrast between how quickly Fluke was propped up after being called a “slut” for advocating taxpayer-funded birth control, and how quickly Republican Stacey Dash was dragged through the mud for failing to support Obama in 2012.
She has her own mind, her own thoughts, her own opinions. Does anyone have to agree with them? No. Does she have the right to express them? Yes. So for that reason alone I would support her. As to whether I agree or disagree with whom she is supporting, well that is another story that I don't have an answer to. ;)

SHe has a right to her opinion. People are so crude and filthy nowdays. This "Tweet" "Twitter" thing inspires the low life scummy people to spew their crazy thoughts. Its sick.
Yeah, her dress ......boobies trying to break free. I would be really nervous if I was wearing her dress. Oooops.
What a shame that she was attacked for giving her endorsement, and those who brought color into it should be even more ashamed! Believing that she should vote for Obama because of the color of her skin is just as wrong as those who won't vote for him for the same reason.
