Nothing was more awkward and weird than the moment that the Oscars brought actress and right winger Stacey Dash out to wish everyone a "Happy Black History Month." The problem is no one found it funny because, we all know she really didn't mean that at all. So, why did they bring her out.
Dash explained on her website the reason for her appearance.
“I’ve spoken out about a LOT of stuff that black people try to stuff down my throat,” she wrote. “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? ).” She has also spoken out on the #OscarsSoWhite controversy saying that people should “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. Yes, I’m the actress from the South Bronx who has always dreamed of winning an Oscar. But God has a great sense of humor and this is my first encounter with one of my dreams of destiny. Bringing diversity to Hollywood… not merely because of color, but politics as well. (After all, different colors of skin is an easy kind of diversity. Ideological diversity is much harder, because it forces everyone to come face to face with actual beliefs. Hollywood needs BOTH.)”
I'm sorry but why are we giving her this much attention and to increase diversity?!? She is the last person that they should've used to increase diversity. I call this one of the fail moments from the Oscars last night.
