Actress and Fox News contributor Stacey Dash is taking on Al Sharpton and his Black celebrity allies who are calling for a boycott of the Oscars So White Academy Awards and it is enraging liberals.
Dash says its ludicrous for black entertainers to call for a boycott of the Oscars for not nominating black performers while simultaneously supporting the BET and NAACP Awards which only recognize black artists.
I think its ludicrous. We have to make up our minds. Either we want to have segregation or integration, Dash said Wednesday on Fox and Friends.
If we dont want segregation then we need to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the NAACP Image Awards where youre only awarded if youre black. If it were the other way around, wed be up in arms.
Brilliant. But then Dash took it a big step father…
Its a double standard, Dash added. Just like there shouldnt be a black history month. Were Americans, period.
Twitter is right now erupting against this last statement, and Dash is sure to face a ton of blowback for it.
Since last weeks release of the 88th Academy Award nominees, calls for a boycott have come from filmmaker Spike Lee, actress Jada Pinkett Smith, and documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, among others. Al Sharpton is leading the charge behind a nationwide boycott of the show.
