Stacey Dash Explains Odd Oscars Cameo
If you watched the Oscars, you might have caught that bizarre appearance by actress-turned-FOX News pundit Stacey Dash.
Known for her unpopular opinions on Black History Month, diversity and race relations in America, the very Clueless actress took to her blog to address the much talked about cameo during last night’s ceremony.
But before we get to that, let’s take a peek at her appearance one more time.
Dash took to her personal blog soon after the awkward moment to explain her role in the skit:
“You might be watching the Oscars and wondering why someone named Stacey Dash just walked across the stage. (Why was that funny anyway?) For example, I spoke out against Black History Month. (Why should there be such a thing? Haven’t we had more than just one month’s worth of accomplishments?…Plus, I spoke out against the #OscarsSoWhite controversy. My take? We need to stop complaining about white people oppressing us, we shouldn’t boycott the Oscars, and we need to support Chris Rock the host.
Which brings me to the joke. When they added ME to increase the diversity, I’m sure many Black people rolled their eyes. I’m not ‘black enough,’ they say. But guess what? I’ve heard that all my life. I would rather be a free thinking, Black than a cookie cutter Black who thinks – and votes – just like all my friends.
Let us all, no matter what your race is, unite in a collective state of confusion.
