This past Sunday, Greys Anatomy actor and activist Jesse Williams gave an uplifting speech at the B.E.T awards (refer to previous article for speech). Jesse’s presentation focused on the struggles of the African American community and that is what ruffled Stacey Dash’s feathers.
Stacey Dash took to her blog to express her frustrations with Jesse Williams and B.E.T. She quoted “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, BET is keeping racism and segregation alive and this past Sunday’s award show proves it”. Not so bad right? regular Stacey Dash rant ? Well it gets interesting.She claimed Jesse’s speech was an “attack on white people”.
Dash criticized Williams speech, referencing specific excerpts as her story went on. She shamed him for singling out “the rich people” and claimed his speech was “straight out of the black lives matter playbook”.She then posted the full video and put the icing on the cake, quoting “You’ve just seen the perfect example of a HOLLYWOOD plantation slave! Sorry Mr.Williams. But the fact that you were standing on that stage at THOSE awards tells people you really don’t know what you’re talking about. Just spewing hate and anger”. She went on saying “Yes Black Entertainment Television is WHITE OWNED. Get over yourself and get on with it!”. So the same woman that said “there shouldn’t be a Black History Month”because there isn’t a white history month, is calling Jesse a “slave” to a “racist” network? Interesting….
Stacey Dash has been on the record numerous times with her “ignorant comments” and I’m sure we are all tired of her. Yes Stacey Dash “we”, all kinds of people of every color. She finished her rant quoting “If anyone is GHETTO-IZING anyone it’s people like you letting the BETs and other media outlets portray us in stereotypes”.Check out her full post on her blog.
