Actress Stacey Dash Goes off on BET Over Their Criticism of Her Answer to Oscar’s Boycott

By Mark Judge. Actress Stacey Dash is responding to Black Entertainment Television, which criticized Dash for comments she recently made about the Academy Awards.

After several media outlets and celebrities criticized the 2016 Oscars nominees for being overwhelmingly white, Dash went on Fox & Friends. “I think it’s ludicrous,” Dash, 49, said. “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 (Black Entertainment Television) and the BET Awards and the [NAACP] Image Awards, where you’re only awarded if you’re black.”

After Dash made her comments, Black Entertainment Television posted a photo on Instagram of the actress appearing in the BET show “The Game” . . .

On January 21, Dash took to her blog at Patheos to respond. (Read more from “Actress Stacey Dash Goes off on BET Over Their Criticism of Her Answer to Oscar’s Boycott” HERE)

How BET Lies to Black People

By Stacey Dash. Ever since I said THIS on Fox yesterday, Black Entertainment Television has been throwing shade.

They reminded me — and the rest of America — that I appeared on a show called The Game, which appeared on BET.

I’m thankful for all of the acting jobs I’ve had. But I look forward to the day when people don’t self-segregate based on skin color, while loudly complaining about a segregated society.

That might be hard for the people at BET to understand, especially after I read this quote from a BET exec about the Oscars:

“It would be great if the Oscar nominees represented even closely the percentage of moviegoers who are of different ethnicities, but they don’t,” said Stephen Hill . . .

Oscars are awarded to the actors and actresses who excel… not the audience. (Read more from “How BET Lies to Black People” HERE)
