Dash believes that Jada Pinkett Smith is a hypocrite for thinking Black actors should be nominated for Oscars when they get to enjoy other privileges. Which privileges, you ask? Well, the BET and the NAACP Image Awards.
Dash believes Black people can’t have both and need to choose a side.
“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,” she said on Fox & Friends.
Host Steve Doocy then asked whether she thinks there shouldn’t be a BET channel.
“No, just like there shouldn’t be a Black History Month,” Dash replied. “You know, we’re Americans. Period. That’s it.”
Yup, Stacey Dash doesn’t agree with Black History Month’s existence.
Dash believes the root of the problem is with President Obama not helping filmmakers create more opportunities for Black actors.
“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,” she said. “Yet, there are not very many roles for people of color. How can that be and why is it just now being addressed?”
This isn’t the first time Stacey Dash has blamed President Obama for something. Last month she said he “doesn’t give a shit” about terrorism.
