Outspoken conservative Stacey Dash continued to anger her detractors. This time with a fiery blog post.
In her post published Thursday, the actress turned political commentator defended herself against the vitriolic responses she received to her previous statements on Fox News where she called for an end to Black History Month and Black Entertainment Television.
“Many of your reactions — saying I’ve sold out to white people –… show you aren’t hearing me,” she wrote.
“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!!!!” she continued.
Dash asked if people really wanted “the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., Frederick Douglass, and even Barack Obama,” to be highlighted only one month out of each year to constitute the extent of their contributions to the black community.
“Our accomplishments cannot be limited to 28 days. Do not listen to liberals who try to limit you, to put you into a box, to tell you that you MUST believe one way or another, that you cannot think for yourselves, and that the government can ‘give’ you a ‘special month,'” she wrote.
The “Clueless” star said it was black people, not white people, who are holding their own race back.
“I am an American and I cannot be categorized or limited by anyone else’s definition of me,” she said. “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.”
Her clarification didn’t do anything to impress her detractors.

@eonline If she was so adamant about her beliefs why is she clarifying? Sounds like she can’t take tha heat.
