Stacey Dash isn’t backing down from her earlier calls to get rid of Black History Month as well as Black Entertainment Television (BET). In fact, she’s doubling down on her stance in an open letter called “How BET Lies to Black People.”
“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,” she wrote. “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.”
Dash also shot back at BET for a tweet they posted slamming her comments about them on Fox & Friends. The network tweeted out, “Soooooo @REALStaceyDash can we get our check back… or nah? #Remember #YouWereOnTheGame #AndWeDontMeanTheRapper.”
“Most people have never heard of The Game,” Dash wrote in the post. “Why? It’s on BET. Quick. Name the top shows on BET. Drawing a blank? I think I’ve made my point.”
She then continued on to call the network racist.
“BET lies to American black people by telling them that the rest of America is racist, so stick close to your own kind,” she wrote. “Anything that promotes segregation is bad!”
“I’m thankful for all of the acting jobs I’ve had. But I look forward to the day when people don’t self-segregate based on skin color, while loudly complaining about a segregated society.”
