Dashs remarks that struck a nerve with some in the Black community date back as far as 2013. In 2016, while on-air, Dash claimed then President Barack Obama “didnt give a s– t” about terrorism.

Actress Stacey Dash says she is lastly able to see herself as a better person after reaching five years of sobriety. (Photo: @staceydash/ Twitter)” I just commemorated five years sobriety,” Dash said during the Oct. 14 episode. “In this five years my blessing, biggest blessing, is that not only have I been able to be honest with myself and become a much better person.”
Dash exposed that her both her moms and dads had a hard time with their own drug dependencies, and that her mother allegedly introduced her to cocaine at the age of 16. By the end of her teenagers, she had tried suicide and found herself in an abusive relationship. Each acting as a contributing aspect to her internal turmoil that would be expressed as anger fueling her extremely conservative and public views.
Dashs remarks that struck a nerve with some in the Black neighborhood go back as far as 2013. Throughout her stint as a FOX political expert, her comments became even more pointed. In 2016, while on-air, Dash declared then President Barack Obama “didnt give a s– t” about terrorism. Years later, she upped the ante by backing Donald Trumps run for president and the Republican party as a whole.
” Because Im black Im expected to therefore be a Democrat, which is unreasonable,” she told UK publication The Guardian in 2018. Ive made an option to stand up for what I think in and do not think I need to be condemned.”
By March of this year, Dash had done some level of soul-searching that led her to backpedal on the controversial views she as soon as openly shared. “I was the mad, conservative, Black lady,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.
Now, knowing much more about the starlet backstory, those angered by her previous comments still discover it challenging to use sympathy.
” So she was talking crazy sober!?! I felt in ones bones she was high supporting Trump [male shoulder shrug emoji]
” Shes still not welcomed to any cookouts”
” Good for her, however we still remember what you said and did maam”

Stacey Dash has yet to discover redemption in the Black neighborhood for her previous inflammatory remarks.
The previous was made evident when the “Clueless” actress showed a more susceptible side while opening about her agonizing past. While speaking to television personality Dr. Oz, Dash shared her “deepest, darkest secret” of previously being addicted to opioids for over a decade.
