Stacey Dash blasts Oscars boycott: Get rid of black history month and BET

Stacey DashActress Stacey Dash lashed out at the growing calls to boycott the Academy Awards because of the lack of minority nominations for the top awards.

She called the boycott “ludicrous” during an appearance on “Fox & Friends” Monday, and indicated that she found the controversy hypocritical.

“We have to make up our minds,” she said. “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.”

Dash said that there shouldn’t be a BET channel, “just like there shouldn’t be a black history month. We’re Americans, period. That’s it.”

The “Clueless” star said she found it “odd that this is now becoming an issue” after President Obama has been in office for seven years.

“I find astounding is that we’ve had a president who was black in office for the past eight years who gets most of his funding from the liberal elite in Hollywood. Yet, there are not very many roles for people of color. How can that be? “Why is it just now being addressed?” she asked.
