Actress and Fox News talking head Stacey Dash recently revealed to The Edit Magazine that she and her cousin, Roc-A-Fella co-founder Dame Dash, no longer speak due to her political beliefs and her refusal to “keep her mouth shut” when it come to critiquing President Obama.

“My family and I have not spoken. My cousin Damon and my brother [Darien, CEO of DME Interactive Holdings] were role models to me because they were great capitalists. Now we’re not really talking because they were the ones who told me to keep my mouth shut. They felt that I should do certain things because I’m black.”

She goes on to say that while she may have broken relationships with family, she’s thanked by black conservatives all the time for speaking her mind.

“Certain friends don’t speak to me any more either. But you know what? In the street I get [approached by] so many people of every color saying: ‘Thank you so much for standing up and being so brave.’ I thought it was time to have a black president and that it would unite us in such a profound way. But as a country, I don’t think we’ve been so divided since the Civil Rights Movement. I mean, isn’t it extraordinary that we are even discussing race in 2014?”
