A Space for People of Color, By People of Color. Be Cool.

Today on April 1st marks the day that Stacey Dash has decided to not be white anymore. She’s going back to black. She writes on her blog:

I have very important news to share with all of you. As you already know, I am known for being white.

Well, not anymore.

After careful consideration, I have decided to be black again, and in doing so, I have quit my job as a contributor of Fox News, I am no longer a supporter of Mitt Romney, and I am no longer a republican. I made plans to become an activist for the Black Lives Matter movement, I now support BET (I’m sorry y’all! Thanks for the paychecks!), I support Black History Month, I will fix my relationship with the black community, and I’ll be buying Kanye West’s new album The Life of Pablo which is in stores on iTunes now. Support black businesses!

I’m sure I have upset many of my fans with this news, but this is my decision and I’m happy about it. I’d like to take this time to apologize to everyone who I have offended with my outrageous remarks. I am making an effort to do better and be black again. Thank you for your time.
