In today’s episode of Why Can’t She Just Go AWAY? Stacey Dash is back to bring ridiculousness to your Wednesday.
Dash appeared on Fox And Friends to share her
stupidity response to Jada Pinkett Smith’s criticism of the Oscars being exclusionary toward actors of color. The actress-formerly-known-as-a-sane-person tried to explain that Black actors have to “earn” their spots. Because … segregation.
I think it’s ludicrous. Because we have to make up our minds. Either we want to have segregation or integration. 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 are only awarded if you are black.”
When host Steve Doocy asked her to clarify if she meant that there should not be a BET Network, she continued:
No, just like there shouldn’t be a Black History Month. You know we’re Americans. Period. That’s it.
Seriously? She’s just trolling us. Because she can’t actually think that because we wanted basic rights like being able to use the same bathroom or attend the same schools as everyone else, that now we can’t be upset when people who deserve awards aren’t recognized.
And let’s not even address the fact that both the Image Awards and BET Awards often give awards to artists and creators who aren’t Black.
To her comments, we say:
