Stacey Dash has officially opened a floodgate against herself.
Stacey Dash, an actress mostly known for her role in 1995 cult hit Clueless and her contribution to Fox News, made some risky remarks on Wednesday’s Fox & Friends.
In response to the news of Jada Pinkett Smith and Spike Lee’s announcements that they will be boycotting the Oscars this year due to a lack of diversity among nominees, Stacey Dash suggested doing away with BET and Black History month.
No kidding, that really happened.
Stacey Dash said, “I think it’s ludicrous. Because, we have to make up our minds. Either we want segregation or integration.”

She added, “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.”
How do y'all feel about trading Stacey Dash for Adele and giving Raven away for free as a package deal?

Stacey Dash then took a couple of hits at President Obama and suggested that since there is no White History month, there should be no Black History month.
When will Stacey Dash condemn Irish/Italian/Jewish Americans 4our own groups/events like she did black folks? Never of course #selfhatemuch

That did it.
If it weren't for the people we honor during #BlackHistoryMonth Stacey Dash would be drinking from a "colored" water fountain.
