Hollywood actress and Fox News host Stacey Dash is under attack for being a conservative who happens to be black. Apparently, liberals consider her a traitor for not supporting Obama and liberal policies.
But now, she’s under serious fire from liberals after responding to the Oscar boycott controversy. She noted that the boycott is a double standard, because the BET channel and the BET awards promote racial segregation:
“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 during the interview, according to CNN. “If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms. It’s a double standard.”
Liberals are demanding she be fired and apologize. But she’s standing her ground. Stacey Dash is a true American patriot!
After receiving significant criticism for the comments — including reminders that one of her first acting roles occurred on the BET show “The Game” — Dash, who comes from an African-American and Latino background, took to the Internet to defend herself on her blog in a post titled “How BET Lies to Black People.” She began by criticizing BET’s low ratings:
Well, here’s the thing. Thank you for reminding me, since most people have never heard of that show.
Why? It’s on BET.
Quick. Name the top shows on BET.
Drawing a blank?
I think I’ve made my point.
Although Dash expressed her gratitude for all of the acting jobs that she was ever given, including role on BET, she still maintained, “But I look forward to the day when people don’t self-segregate based on skin color, while loudly complaining about a segregated society.”
Dash then called out Stephen Hill, a BET executive, for his comments declaring that the Oscar nominees should reflect the percentages of moviegoers from all ethnicities.
“Oscars are awarded to the actors and actresses who excel … not the audience,” Dash wrote in response. “BET lies to American black people by telling them that the rest of America is racist, so stick close to your own kind. Anything that promotes segregation is bad! And they’re absolutely mortified that someone like me — an independent-thinking black woman — dares call their bluff.”
