Stacey Dash Wants Twitter To Apologize, Explains Comments On Black History Month
Stacey Dash is even more delusional than most of us originally thought, because she seems to think that she is owed and may possibly receive an apology from the army of Twitter users that came for her whitewashed neck last week after her comments bashing BET, The Image Awards, and dismissing Black History Month as racist.
Citing a 60-minutes interview Morgan Freeman gave years and years ago, Stacey asked when exactly she was going to receive an in-pouring of “I’m Sorrys,” after people realize that she’s only agreeing with what the actor said:
When I spoke out on Fox News and on my blog about the need to get rid of BET and Black History Month, all the same usual Twitter haters came out of the woodwork to troll me and say all sorts of disgusting things about me.
The same trolls who attacked me when I endorsed Mitt Romney came out and called me all sorts of things, many of which I can’t even say here. Well, if you’re going to call me ignorant, stupid, and an Uncle Tom, you need to be intellectually honest and also call out Morgan Freeman.
Like I said… so when do the Twitter trolls apologize to me?
Well,while she waits on that apology that will never arrive, she also decided to “clarify” what she meant when she said she wanted to get rid of Black History Month. In her newly posted blog, Stacey insists that Black people are holding themselves back by accepting a set aside month to celebrate our contributions to US History:
It’s hard to cut through the hysterical reactions to my comments the other day about Black History Month.
I feel like many of your reactions — saying that I’ve sold out to white people, that I’m “coonin’” etc — show you aren’t hearing me.
I’m not saying we as black people deserve LESS respect. I’m saying we deserve MORE.
Black History should be apart of social studies and history curriculum EVERYDAY OF EVERY MONTH OF EVERY YEAR. not just 28 days out of 365!!!!
Black history IS American history. We are not a category or a special interest group. We are Americans.
I am an American and I cannot be categorized or limited by anyone else’s definition of me. I can tell by the hysterical reactions that it’s not WHITE PEOPLE who are trying to keep black Americans in their place. It’s BLACK people.
We need to stop doing this to ourselves, to our brothers and sisters. We need to swipe the breadcrumbs on the floor and eat of the wonderful, rich food this nation offers.
Well now that she (kind of) cleared that up, what do you think? Does Stacey have a point or does she still need to have a whole stadium of seats??
