Stacey Dash seldom finds herself in the news lately about her acting abilities. Her most notable role to date, arguably has been the role of Dionne in the movie, and subsequent TV series, “Clueless.” No one could have foreseen how appropriate that name would be years later in describing Stacey Dash as she has reinvented herself in the public space as a regular contributor and commentator on conservative leaning “news” channel Fox News. Today while addressing the controversy surrounding a possible boycott of the Academy Awards by minority actors, actresses, directors, and producers, Dash went on the Fox News program “Outnumbered” to express the “hypocrisy” of the notion that there should be a boycott.
Dash was quoted as saying.
“We have to make up our minds. 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 and the BET Awards and the Image Awards where you’re only awarded if you’re black. If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms. It’s a double standard.”
She elaborates more in the video below.
And of course she wasn’t met with the friendliest of reactions from the black community.
Never mind that Ms. Dash seems to have either forgotten, or simply never learned WHY these institutions are a thing to begin with, (ie. Forced segregation, and lack of inclusion by mainstream entities.) To a large degree, at this point, it’s as if she doesn’t care. And it’s that lack of care that makes her a troll.
