  • There is no excuse for ignorance – be it institutionalized racism by media exploiting @realStacey Dash fans and silencing their liberal views by calling them racist using it as an excuse or the few that hurled degradating remarks at her.

Bothsides should be equally heard and respected. EVERYBODY VOTE Nov. 6th 2012!
