Just weeks after actress Stacey Dash was slammed after she posted up a photo, endorsing presidential candidate Mitt Romney, her Single Ladies co-star LisaRaye decided to make a political statement as well. She recently posted a photo of herself in a classroom, with a portrait of President Obama and an American Flag painted on her back. On the chalkboard, the words, “I Got Obama’s Back” are written multiple times in red and blue.
According to a recent interview, conducted after the shoot, LisaRaye wanted to do something that would make a strong impact while showing her support for President Obama:
I don’t think people seem as excited about this presidential campaign as they were four years ago. For this campaign, I just wanted something that would make an impact. I wanted to say why I’m behind President Obama in this election, and I want to encourage everyone to vote. I have Obama’s back, and I want everyone to have Obama’s back.
