“You’ve just seen the perfect example of a Hollywood plantation slave,” Dash wrote. “Sorry, Mr Williams. But the fact that you were standing on that stage at those awards tells people you really don’t know what you’re talking about. Just spewing hate and anger.” (RELATED: Jesse Williams: Try Telling Dead Black People That Racism Is Over)

“Because you my man are just like everyone else hustling to get money,” she added. “But your cognitive dissidents has you getting it from that bystander whom you don’t need. Yes, Black Entertainment Television is white owned.”

“That chip on the shoulders of people like you will weigh you down and keep you from flying free,” she continued. “But true freedom is never free. You have to know how to fly.”

“If anyone is making you feel this way its you,” she said. “Living in a psychological prison of your own making. If anyone is ghetto-izing anyone, it’s people like you letting the BETs and other media outlets portray us in stereotypes.”
