Stacey Dash is ticking off A LOT of people on the left with her comments about The Oscar’s and Black History Month.
Stacey Dash criticized those who have come out against the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences over the complete absence of non-white acting nominees at this year’s Oscars – and called for the elimination of Black History Month and the cable channel BET.
Dash called the actions of stars like Jada Pinkett Smith and Spike Lee to boycott the Oscars ‘ludicrous,’ and then took things a step further.
‘We have to make up our minds,’ Dash said during an appearance on Fox & Friends.
‘Either we want to have segregation or integration. And if we don’t want segregation, then we need to get rid of channels like BET [Black Entertainment Television] and the BET Awards and the Image Awards where you’re only awarded if you’re black.’
She then added: ‘If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms. It’s a double standard.’
Dash did not stop there either, saying later in the interview when again asked if BET should be on air: ‘No, I don’t think so, no. Just like there shouldn’t be a Black History Month. You know? We’re Americans. Period. That’s it.’

Here’s how BET responded:
BET then chimed in via Twitter, linking to a gallery produced by its website titled “Every Time Stacey Dash Proved She Was Clueless.” The network featured some of Dash’s recent controversies, including her comments from Wednesday morning. “She thinks there needs to be a white history month too, since, you know, our ancestors apparently fought for nothing,” BET’s caption read. “Clueless indeed.”
