Dash, now a Fox News contributor, took issue with the lack of diversity in this year's list of Academy Awards nominees while chatting with Steve Doocy on Fox & Friends
"I think it's ludicrous," she said. "Because we have to make up our minds. Either we want segregation or integration."
The outspoken actress, who turned 49 on Wednesday, also stated that she's glad the issue has finally received some attention, but in order for things to change, we need to get rid of the "double standard" currently in place.
"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," she explained. "If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms. It's a double standard."
"What I find astounding is that we've had a president who is black in office for the past eight years, who gets most of his funding from the liberal elite in Hollywood,"
she added, referring to President Barack Obama.
"Yet, there are not very many roles for people of color. How can that be? And why is it just now being addressed?"
As you could imagine, she ruffled some feather with one!
How do you feel about her statements?
Presidential Candidate, Donald Trump, agreed with Stacey,
The View's Whoopi Goldberg agreed partially with Dash but says,
“The thing is, [Black History] is not taught … American history holds all of us, and [Dash is] right in that. Yes, we are all Americans, but we’re not all treated like Americans. and one of the reasons that there is a BET is because networks wouldn’t take a lot of the shows that have an all-black cast. “Unfortunately, we need things like BET,”
Although, a lot of people aren't siding with Dash. Even her own cousin, well known one-time Media Mogul, Dame Dash disagrees. Dame says his cousin is "coonin"...
