Stacey Dash Is Planning To Run For Congress In California
Stacey Dash is primarily known for playing Dionne Davenport in the 1995 film Clueless. Since then, she's been remembered as the woman who suggested BET and Black History Month no longer be celebrated.

"Either we want to have segregation or integration," she said. "And if we don't want segregation, then we need to get rid channels like BET and the BET Awards and the Awards where you're only awarded if you're Black. If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms. It's a double standard. Just like there shouldn't be a Black History Month. You know? We're Americans. Period. That's it."
With that opinion in mind, the 51-year-old has reportedly filed as a Republican for the House Representatives in the 44th district California - that includes North Long Beach, San Pedro, Watts, and Compton. The district is currently being run by a Democrat.
Stacey tweeted her plans saying, "A number people online and f have suggested I run for political fice. I wanted to see what my online community thinks this idea as I mull the possibilities. Thoughts?"
