(CNSNews.com) – Actress and Fox News cultural pundit Stacey Dash said on Thursday that President Barack Obama was elected because Americans believed the first black president could heal racial divides in the country but the opposite has happened.

“I think he bamboozled us,” Dash said at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland. “I think we all got blacked into it.

“We all voted for him because we believed, ‘Yes, it’s time to have a black president. He is going to unite us in a very profound way,’” Dash said.

“What did he do? The exact opposite,” she said.

CNSNews.com asked Dash about Obama’s election and the hope that he would heal racial divides and why the country now seems more divided than ever.

“I think that’s the case, because I think he bamboozled us,” Dash said. “I think we all got blacked into it.



“We all voted for him because we believed, ‘Yes, it’s time to have a black president. He is going to unite us in a very profound way,’” Dash said.

“What did he do? The exact opposite,” she said.

CNSNews.com also asked Dash what the next president should do to improve race relations.

“So what’s the next guy going to have to do?” Dash said. “He’s going to have to unite us in a very profound, blatant, hardcore way.

“It’s not going to be easy,” she said. “It’s going to be war. It is.

“It’s going to be war, because there’s going to be people who say, ‘Oh no, white people, I don’t want to have anything to do with them,’ and ‘black people, I don’t want anything to do with them,’ and we the people, who do want to be united have to say, ‘Okay, we’re going to educate you,’ because I believe education is the big integrator,” she said.

“If we educate you, then unity will come, and until we understand that, unless we’re united, we will never be a great country until we understand that we’re in this conundrum,” Dash said.
