We knew this was coming. After Jesse Williams raised the roof on the BET Awards with a stirring speech about civil justice, Black pride and appropriation, Stacey Dash felt the need to flex her pen to retaliate against it, even going so far as to call him a “plantation slave” for his words. And that’s not even the worst of it.
Dash published a blog post titled “Racist speech at BET Awards attacked white people,” and went in on Williams, BET and anybody who doesn’t ascribe to her conservative views. “BET is keeping racism and segregation alive and this past Sunday’s awards show proves it,” she began.
After criticizing various parts of his speech (which you can read in full here), Dash attacked the man himself. “You’ve just seen the perfect example of a HOLLYWOOD plantation slave!” she wrote. “Sorry, Mr Williams. But the fact that you were standing on that stage at THOSE awards tells people you really don’t know what your talking about. Just spewing hate and anger. Because you my man are just like everyone else hustling to get money. But your cognitive dissidents [sic] has you getting it from THAT BYSTANDER whom YOU DON’T NEED. Yes. BLACK ENTERTAINMENT TELEVISION is WHITE OWNED.”
