Stacey Dash knows how to stay relevant in today's times as a recent comment against Chicago's Jesse Williams has her trending yet once again.

As if her previous Playboy shoot wasn't controversial enough.

"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," Dash wrote Wednesday on her blog. "Because you, my man, are just like everyone else hustling to get money."

This was in response to Jesse Williams's BET Speech on systemic racism and cultural appropriation this past Sunday:

"We've been floating this country on credit for centuries, yo, and we're done watching and waiting while this invention called whiteness uses and abuses us, burying black people out of sight and out of mind, while extracting our culture, our dollars, our entertainment like oil, black gold," said Williams, a "Grey's Anatomy" star who spent part of his childhood in Humboldt Park.

"Ghettoizing and demeaning our creations then stealing them, gentrifying our genius and then trying us on like costumes before discarding our bodies like rinds of strange fruit. The thing is, though, the thing is that just because we're magic, doesn't mean we're not real."

Stacey Dash ain't buyin' it. But then again, a lot of people discredit her because they believe she isn't pro-black either. Is this a "pot calling the kettle black" situation? Or is Jesse Williams justified in his speech. Whatever it is, this is America people. Freedom of speech still exists.
