Playing Stacey Dash Responds to BET Backlash by Slamming the Network for 'Lying to Black People'

Stacey Dash isn't backing down on her call to get rid of Black Entertainment Television (BET), the NAACP Image Awards and Black History Month.

The Clueless actress took to her blog on Thursday to further pen her point of view in a post titled: "How BET Lies to Black People."

"My problem goes back to the notion that every area of life needs to break down exactly according to demographic ratios except in those areas in which black people have decided they want to have their own space," she wrote. "I don’t have a problem with black people having their own space. I have a problem with the folks at BET absolutely freaking out when other institutions don’t match up to what they think is best."

After Dash slammed BET the first time during a conversation on Fox & Friends about the lack diversity among this year's Oscar nominees, the cable network's Twitter responded by tweeting: "Soooooo @REALStaceyDash can we get our check back... or nah? #Remember #YouWereOnTheGame #AndWeDontMeanTheRapper."

"Most people have never heard of The Game," the Fox News contributor bit back in her blog post. "Why? It's on BET. Quick. Name the top shows on BET. Drawing a blank? I think I've made my point."

Dash's remarks became even more scathing towards the cable channel. "BET lies to American black people by telling them that the rest of America is racist, so stick close to your own kind," she wrote. "Anything that promotes segregation is bad!"

She added, "I'm thankful for all of the acting jobs I’ve had. But I look forward to the day when people don't self-segregate based on skin color, while loudly complaining about a segregated society."

On Thursday morning, the ladies of The View slammed Dash for wanting to abolish BET. Whoopi Goldberg explained that networks like BET exist because other channels refused to take shows with an all-black cast.

Goldberg also had a big issue with Dash wanting to get rid of Black History Month. "The thing is, it's not taught. Asian history is not taught in school. As it pertains to America – American history holds all of us, and she's right in that," she explained. "Yes, we are all Americans, but we are not all treated like Americans."

Goldberg also isn't supporting the boycott of the Oscars. Here's what she had to say about diversity in Hollywood:
