Is there a war on conservative black women?

Stacey Dash has become the poster child for conservative black women. She tweeted her support for Mitt Romney and people responded in a very vile and vicious way. The conservative media claim the responses are from Obama supporters, but they don’t know who the responders are. Anyway Dash has gotten more publicity from this tweet than she has gotten since the 90s, but the bigger discussion is do people attack these women for simply being Republicans or are the attacks base on the GOP policies they support, and tell me why to black GOP feel the need to refer to black Demorats as inhabitants of the Democratic plantation, and they are the free blacks. Could this kind of language be a catalyst for attack? Share your thoughts.

      Thank you for your succinct response, but could you expand just a little.

    You said the right words here…Dash has gotten more publicity from this tweet than she has gotten since the 90s. I am sure she is happy about that.

    Fault is on both sides. Black folk mad at other fblack folk for being Republican. And Black folk looking down their noses at other black folk because they are Democrat. Sigh. You’re considered wrong no matter what your opinion is.

    And alas, here’s the media… ready and willing to stoke the fires of conflict. (As usual). All of a sudden, it’s a “war”.

    It is indeed a catalyst for attack. And it shines the light on a deeper problem… the problem of us all needing our thoughts and opinions validated… Instead of being confident enough to stand in our own beliefs and opinions, we have a tendency to be downright vigilant about making someone else think they are wrong just because they have a different belief or opinion from our “right” one. And something about that feels very wrong all the way around.

    I’m afraid to expand . . . opinions can get you hurt
