Our favorite Single Ladies star LisaRaye recently shared a photo via Facebook showing her support for President Barack Obama. Though tastefully done, there were a few negative comments regarding the image. In the photo, above, LisaRaye sits on desk, topless, with a body paint portrait of Obama and an American flag painted on her back. Read why LisaRaye decided to get involved in this election:
“I don’t think people seem as excited about this presidential campaign as they were four years ago,” she told Celebuzz in an exclusive interview. “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.”
LisaRaye — who was involved in the last election as part of the Education Tour — adds her political opinion shouldn’t be overlooked just because of her star status in Hollywood.
“Just because we’re celebrities are we any less human?” she asked. “We lead pretty normal lives. We also have the right to vote just like everyone else.”
“The only difference is that I have a camera pointed at me,” she continued. “This is who’s back I have, and this is who’s back you have. Just have it for someone and believe in your choice and most importantly, go out and vote. I choose to use my platform as a celebrity to promote who I’m supporting. When it comes to the presidential elections, you have to pull out all the guns and you have to get all the support you can get.”
“At the end of the day, President Obama still has to prove himself regardless of what I have to say, but if I can use my voice to encourage and motivate people to support him, then I will do whatever I can.”
