    Stacey Dash, Fox commentator: Oscar flap 'ludicrous' and get rid of Black History Month
    January 21
    NEW YORK


    Fox News commentator Stacey Dash dismissed the outrage over the lack of African-American Oscar nominees as "ludicrous."

    Dash, an African-American actress and contributor to the network, also said on Wednesday's "Fox & Friends" that to obtain integration there should be no Black History Month, award shows that honor African-Americans, or BET, a channel that focuses on African-American entertainment.

    "We have to make up our minds. Either we want to have segregation or integration, and if we don't want segregation, then we have to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the Image Awards, where you're only awarded if you're black," Dash said. "If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms. It's a double standard."

    Dash continued, "There shouldn't be a Black History Month. We're Americans, period. That's it."

    Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy followed up asking Dash, "Do you think there shouldn't be a black history month because there isn't a white history month?"

    "Exactly, exactly," Dash said nodding.

    Dash's comments come as director Spike Lee and actress Jada Pinkett Smith said they would protest the Oscars because all of the acting nominees this year were white.

    She also responded to Al Sharpton's criticisms of the Oscars when he said, "Hollywood is like the Rocky Mountains, the higher up you get the whiter it gets."

    "That's not necessarily true. If it is then that needs to change," Dash said. "What I find astounding is that we've had a president who is black in office for the past eight years who gets most of his funding from the liberal elite in Hollywood. Yet, there are not many roles for people of color. How can that be?"

    Dash's blunt views have drawn fire before. She was suspended by the cable news network last month for using profanities while criticizing President Obama, saying she "didn't give a sh--" about one of his speeches.

    Following Dash's comments, BET released a statement explaining that since its inception the network has been a place where African-Americans "could consistently see themselves represented and celebrated."

    "Through our award shows and programming we have recognized incredible talent that simply does not get recognized elsewhere," Debra Lee, CEO of BET Networks said in a statement. "African American contributions to American culture are countless and we cannot and should not wait for anyone to acknowledge them."

    The network also tweeted at the actress asking her if it can get its pay check back from her performance on the network's series, "The Game."

    She's been viciously attacked on social media for her conservative views. She's brave by putting herself out there like that.

    Fuck BET.. I'm told this is a popular ensemble spoof that's pretty good. HOWEVER, if it takes place in "Hollywood" why did they not make the inclusionary effort to cast at least 1 Caucasian, when th entertainment capital itself is almost exclusively populated by pale peeps? Another case of "Do as I say and not as I do" ??

    Props to Stacy .. and so much for #unpopularblackopinionsmatter

    You can get your Black card revoked for those comments.

    The reality is that there are lots of minorities that think that way but never speak up.

    Fucking a with that black history month shit. What about American Indian History month? Big difference between an entire race nearly being annihilated and having to work out on a field for food and shelter.

    BET is owned by Viacom which is controlled by rich Jews. The game is produced by TVs Frazier. So this is pandering to stupid reggies.

    I love how Will, Jada, and Spike think that anyone cares if they boycott the Oscars. They could all drop dead tomorrow and it wouldn't bother me a bit.

    Dash is half mexican american and most have a good percentage of aboriginal blood. The spanaird fucked the abirigionals consequently peoples from south of the boarder including central an south america have plenty of "Indians" while the Protestant manifest destiny continue to deny their part in one of the largest systematic genocides in the history of the worls by claiming it on desease and giving the survivors casinos.

    Also with dash being half Latino explains why she is so outspoken about the reggies and their current bullshit and why she was and is smoking hot.

    I love how rich black actors living in mansions with huge bank accounts and secure jobs are telling up and coming, just trying to get by, job to job black actors to boycott Hollywood. Seems reasonable. :rolleye2:
