Actress Stacey Dash was viciously slammed for calling the Oscars boycott “ludicrous” and saying we should “get rid of” BET (Black Entertainment Television) and Black History Month.
“It’s ludicrous, because we have to make up our minds: Either we want segregation or integration,” Dash said on Fox & Friends (see video).
“If we don’t want segregation, then we need to get rid of channels like BET, and the BET Awards and the NAACP Image 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.”
Stacey, 49, was responding to calls by Jada Pinkett Smith and Spike Lee to boycott the 2016 Academy Awards because no black person was nominated for an award this or last year.
Meanwhile, no Asian, Latino or Native American actor was nominated this year or last year (or for many years), and those groups are not b*tching and whining.
Come to think of it, when was the last time a handicapped person, a transgender individual, or a dwarf (little person) was nominated for an Oscar? When is their “turn?”
Critics say Jada is merely whining because her husband, Will Smith, was not nominated this year for his movie “Concussion.” Will’s former “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” co-star Janet Hubert (“Aunt Viv”) slammed Jada and Will as self-serving, entitled brats who are complaining about awards when there are far more important problems in the world.
Stacey Dash agreed (find out her anti-aging beauty tips here). Dash is shocked that little racial progress has been made even though the United States has had a black president for two terms.
What I find astounding is that we’ve had a president who is black for the past eight years, who gets most of his funding from the liberal elite in Hollywood.
Yet there are not very many roles for people of color. How can that be? And why is it just now being addressed?”
Stacey also noted the president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is black (Cheryl Boone Isaacs), and it’s absurd that the issue of the Oscars “being so white” only came up because Jada Pinkett Smith was upset her husband wasn’t nominated.
Dash also said there shouldn’t be a Black History Month because we need to stop identifying ourselves and each other by race. “There shouldn’t be a Black History Month,” said Stacey. “We’re Americans. Period. That’s it.”
After being viciously slammed as a race traitor, Dash pointed out that actor Morgan Freeman has also criticized Black History Month. “You’re going to relegate my history to a month?” Freeman said on “60 Minutes” in 2005. “Which month is White History Month?”
