Some of everyone has thrown their two cents into the Oscar diversity discussion so we should’ve known it was only a matter of time before simple Stacey Dash added her voice to the mix — unfortunately.
Making quite the debut return to Fox News today after being suspended for her comments about Barack Obama, Dash was asked by host Steve Doocy how she feels about Jada Pinkett’s suggestion to boycott the Academy Awards and she offered up this:
“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.”
“So you say there should not be a BET channel?” Doocy asked.
“No, just like there shouldn’t be a Black History Month,” Dash replied. “You know, we’re Americans. Period. That’s it.”
“Are you saying there shouldn’t be a Black History Month because there isn’t a White History Month?” Doocy further asked.
“Exactly! 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 very many roles for people of color. How can that be and why is it just now being addressed?”
Oh wait, now you care about people of color and think this is something President Obama should address? Alright Stacey.
