Stacey Dash didn't have the ideal American childhood. Growing up in the South Bronx, her friends were the hustlers, hookers, and gang members who struggled in the face of futility, who sold drugs instead of living on food stamps, who settled matters with fists, knives, and guns because it seemed their only option, who stood tall against broken dreams.
Dash's rough upbringing shaped the rest of her life—her relationships, her politics, even her faith. She has seen how conservative and liberal policies play out in the real world, and her experiences have made her the proud conservative she is today.
That's why Stacey Dash, a Fox News contributor and Hollywood actress best known for starring in the 1995 classic Clueless, is now telling her story. Amidst all the heated racial rhetoric and the divisive language that flows from T.V., the Internet, self-appointed black spokespeople, and even President Obama, Dash feels compelled to speak out and say something true about race, politics, and America.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Ms. Dash gives a concise story of her life and the trials that she has faced, as well as the events that led to her being born again and realizing her conservative nature. An interesting, well-written, and compelling story of a woman struggling with a role forced upon her, ultimately rejecting it. Some of her arguments for her religious beliefs i don't quite buy, but she explains them clearly.
Nice book,disagree with about everything she says, and she doesnt in my opinionclearly state exactly WHY obama is the apparent evil villian he is. But it is a good story and funny and if you arent familiar with Stacey dash its nice to see how the story plays out.
