Stacey Dash recently had everyone up in arms when she denounced BET, the NAACP Awards, and Black History Month.
Since BET replied with the amazing response, “Soooooo @realstaceyldash, can we get our check back… or nah?” in reference to her former appearance on its show The Game, Dash shot back in a recent blog post on Patheos titled “How BET Lies to Black People.” So dramatic.
“Most people have never heard of The Game, Why? It’s on BET. Quick. Name the top shows on BET. Drawing a blank? I think I’ve made my point,” Dash says of the Black network.
She wants us to understand that she has no problem with Black people owning their own lane. Dash explains: “My problem goes back to the notion that every area of life needs to break down exactly according to demographic ratios except in those areas in which black people have decided they want to have their own space. I don’t have a problem with black people having their own space. I have a problem with the folks at BET absolutely freaking out when other institutions don’t match up to what they think is best.”
The 49-year-old doesn’t want folks to complain about a separated society they supposedly imposed, saying, “I look forward to the day when people don’t self-segregate based on skin color, while loudly complaining about a segregated society.”
She also thinks that BET lies to Black people by “telling them that the rest of America is racist, so stick close to your own kind. Anything that promotes segregation is bad!”
Stay tuned; it’s only a matter of time before Stacey Dash attempts to break the internet again.
