A conservative black organization is praising a black actress for standing up to ferocious attacks she received for voicing her support for Mitt Romney.

Stacey Dash voted for Barack Obama in 2008. But this year the black actress said she is supporting Romney "because of the state of the country and I want the next four years to be different." Dash also said Governor Romney and his wife Ann "seemed authentic and genuine."

But Dash's support for Romney on Twitter was met with scores of vicious replies, including calls for her death. Dash said she was shocked saddened by the ferocious attacks.

Shelby Emmett is a spokeswoman for the Project 21 Black Leadership Network. She is not surprised by what has happened to Dash.

Emmett, Shelby (Project 21)"As a black conservative woman myself, it happens pretty much every single day," she reveals. "I don't think enough people on the conservative side of the aisle do enough to defend black conservatives when they know how much we're putting on the line to speak out against liberalism. And I think liberals always have a racist mindset in general."

Emmett believes the Democrat Party has a plantation mindset, meaning they want blacks to view themselves as victims and dependent on the government.

"A woman is supposed to be there. Poor people are supposed to be there. Blacks are supposed to be there," she tells OneNewsNow. "And if you don't see yourself as a victim, that scares liberals because t the only thing they have to keep us in place is the fact that we're supposed to be afraid."

Emmett says you can't be free and a member of the Democratic Party.
