Dolly Parton Talks BLM Movement: “Of Course Black Lives Matter”

Country music legend Dolly Parton recently spoke about her thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement. In the interview, Dolly Parton expressed her “unequivocal” support of the Black Lives Matter movement, stating,

I understand people having to make themselves known and felt and seen. And of course black lives matter. Do we think our little white asses are the only ones that matter? No!”

The Grammy award winning singer also talks about renaming her Dixie Stampede dinner attraction as Dolly Parton’s Stampede back in 2018. Dolly Parton renamed the attraction because she became more aware of the racist connotation of the term “Dixie” and its association with the confederacy. She explains,

“There’s such a thing as innocent ignorance, and so many of us are guilty of that. When they said ‘Dixie’ was an offensive word, I  thought,‘Well, I don’t want to offend anybody. This is a business. We’ll just call it The Stampede.’ As soon as you realize that [something] is a problem, you should fix it. Don’t be a dumbass. That’s where my heart is.  I would never dream of hurting anybody on purpose.”
