It turns out that not every black person in America was a fan of Jesse Williams’ recent speech. As previously reported, the actor was praised by some after his speech at the BET Awards [Click here for the backstory].
However, political commentator and actress Stacey Dash is NOT a fan. On her personal blog, she slammed Williams, along with the network for perpetuating racism. She writes:
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: BET is keeping racism and segregation alive and this past Sunday’s awards show proves it. Particularly the speech given by Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams, whose tirade after receiving the 2016 BET Humanitarian Award for his black activism was nothing short of an attack on white people.
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 your [sic] talking about. Just spewing hate and anger.
