Stacey Dash is not backing down!
But the Clueless alum believes there’s one famous figure who has her back… Morgan Freeman!
“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.”
But the scandalized star wanted to point out to everyone who was sh*tting on her that she allegedly isn’t the only one who thinks this.
She claimed that the amazing actor feels the same way she does, and that he should also be sharing some of the backlash, adding:
“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.”
And the FOX News panelist even supplied a video she hopes will support her statement, in which the Shawshank Redemption actor discusses Black History Month with the late Mike Wallace on 60 Minutes, sharing:
“What’s that you say? You didn’t realize that Morgan Freeman agrees with me that having a Black History Month is actually racist and a part of the problem in healing race relations in America? Well, listen to this interview from years back with Mike Wallace on 60 Minutes.”
Take a look at the clip for yourself (below):
After sharing the vid, she wrote:
“Damn straight, Morgan Freeman! PREACH IT! It’s time we decide as a society whether we want to care about race or not. Like Morgan Freeman says, there is no White History Month and there should be no Black History Month. Black history IS American history.”
“You want racial healing and reconciliation? You want true equality? Listen to Morgan Freeman ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ Stop. Talking. About. Race. Like I said├óΓé¼┬ª so when do the Twitter trolls apologize to me? I’ll wait right here.”
What do U think of all this, Perezcious readers? SOUND OFF in the comments!
