Stacey Dash Claps Back At BET!- “BET Lies To Black People”


Stacey Dash has been under attack all week long for her comments made on Fox News about ending BET, Black History Month, and the BET Awards. Everyone from BET, Roland Martin, her own cousin Dame Dash and many more have roasted her and pointed out much of the hypocrisy found in her statements. BET asked Stacey if they could get their check back since she forgot she had appeared on ‘The Game.’ Dash has now fired back at BET for the network’s criticism of her.

“Well, here’s the thing. Thank you for reminding me, since most people have never heard of that show. Why? It’s on BET. Quick. Name the top shows on BET. Drawing a blank? I think I’ve made my point. I’m thankful for all of the acting jobs I’ve had. But I look forward to the day when people don’t self-segregate based on skin color, while loudly complaining about a segregated society. That might be hard for the people at BET to understand, especially after I read this quote from a BET exec about the Oscars: “It would be great if the Oscar nominees represented even closely the percentage of moviegoers who are of different ethnicities, but they don’t,” said Stephen Hill. Wow. Apparently, Mr. Hill doesn’t understand what an Oscar is. Oscars are awarded to the actors and actresses who excel… not the audience. What’s next? Awarding $1 million to the guy sitting in his pajamas on the couch watching Survivor? Giving a blue ribbon to the kid who stayed home from field day? Giving a Nobel Peace Prize to a President who escalated wars in Iraq and Afghanistan? No, that would be unreasonable. My problem goes back to the notion that every area of life needs to break down exactly according to demographic ratios except in those areas in which black people have decided they want to have their own space. I don’t have a problem with black people having their own space. I have a problem with the folks at BET absolutely freaking out when other institutions don’t match up to what they think is best. At National Review, they put it this way: “From their undisputed cultural heights, progressives have sold the American people on a fantasy that says America is racist unless every demographic group enjoys the benefits of its life and shares its burdens in exact proportion to their numbers — except, of course, when it comes to areas of the culture dominated by African-Americans.”BET lies to American black people by telling them that the rest of America is racist, so stick close to your own kind. Anything that promotes segregation is bad! And they’re absolutely mortified that someone like me — an independent-thinking black woman — dares call their bluff.”

Did Dash say anything to change your mind? Do you agree or disagree with Stacey’s original statements and her latest ones?

  • You = No Degree Apartment Bum

    Who cares about BET? Honkys own it. Black people stopped caring about them a long time ago.

    Black people need to just stop supporting white award shows, tv shows, games, music, etc and stream it for free or download it for free. Don’t support these culture vultures when they ain’t supporting you.

    • hip hop

      inb4 “but but whites buy all the albums” even tho not a single person has ever provided proof that, AND rap sold WAY better BEFORE whites were even interested in it.

      • Eli Pinilla

        “AND rap sold WAY better BEFORE whites were even interested in it.”

        Not true at all. Raising Hell was the first platinum hip hop album and that had “run this way” on it. Actually, all those early Def Jam albums had a heavy rock influence for a reason. Before that, only Curtiss Blow went gold.

      • timwest1000

        Uhhh that’s Kurtis. And…. I guess that was a cute description of Walk This Way. OK. Go in time out and face the wall and be quiet. Whites were not investing as much as they are now. At that time boy hair bands were ruling the industry. Rap was crossing over yes, BUT nowhere near Bon Jovi sales. Rick Rubin was interested in it, Aerosmith hated the idea and so did ALL of their fans. Check your history, It’s no mystery. They only went along for the money.

      • Eli Pinilla

        Uhhh that’s auto correct. And…..even if I wrote “tread this way” my point is still valid. One you obviously can’t counter….

  • ZUBU

    “On Thursday morning, the ladies of The View slammed Dash for wanting to abolish BET. Whoopi Goldberg explained that networks like BET exist because other channels refused to take shows with an all-black cast.

    Goldberg also had a big issue with Dash wanting to get rid of Black History Month. “The thing is, it’s not taught. Asian history is not taught in school. As it pertains to America – American history holds all of us, and she’s right in that,” she explained. “Yes, we are all Americans, but we are not all treated like Americans.”

    This chick really is CLUELESS…… SMH

    • Markus

      Well said,my brother. I caught that on YouTube. Whoopi and Sunny Hostin made a lot of valid points.

  • jacksjus

    Wow Stacey!

    This nonsense is beyond deserving any response. Arguing this bitch is like beating on a dead horse, because she is set in her fugged up ways.

    The average white person can see that she’s lost.

  • NYComicBookGuy

    I’d still smash, tho

  • Sgt. H. Jennings

    BET is lame as fvck………. Not because it’s owned by Viacom, but because the programming is terrible. There are no good shows on BET. Being Mary Jane is the only thing I watch on BET and the season is over so it’s curtains for now. I watch tv for entertainment purposes only. I don’t give a flying boeing 747 fvck who owns it. If I find it interesting I’ll watch it. Stacy Dash has a point in her argument. Of course she do, it’s how she feel and decides to look at things. It’s not right or wrong, it’s simply her point of view. Whoopi and so many others have points also. It’s all a matter of opinion from your personal point of view. We haven’t even begun to crack the surface of the real issues and inconsistencies of what’s really going on. Getting snubbed by the Oscars is sparking all of this?? Are you kidding me.?.?.? lol. dang it.. I almost forgot,, Entertainment Purposes Only.. yes even the Oscars. OUT!

  • Oopster

    TLDR

  • Briggs Islam

    I actually understand what she is saying. However, her comments are sort of attacking and people in general have thin skin when it comes to this. She’s not wrong. Then again Jada Smith isn’t really wrong either. If you’re mad from being excluded from the Oscars then don’t support it. It really is that simple.

  • josh

    I agree with her completely

    • Anydaynow2

      You betcha, Joshie. Sarah Palin says hello.

      • meanygreene

        Cant believe she let glen rice smash.

  • Eli Pinilla

    Sometimes it’s not about what you say, but how you say it. In the grand scheme of things, she has a point. But the way she goes about doing so, turns off the listener and dilutes her message. Ironically, her cousin has this same problem when getting his point across

    I will say this though, at least she means well. Where’s all this outrage for Mona Scott?? If you really wanna talk about setbacks and making minorities look bad, she’s first on my list. And don’t know how in the hell she gets a pass.

    • Anydaynow2

      She’s pandering. Plain and simple.

    • Q.

      No, it’s not about how she said it. What’s she’s saying is just ignorant. You think she means well? Means well for who…her own pockets? Her handlers? Who? Definitely not Black people!

      And Mona Scott doesn’t get a pass either. She’s a purveyor of coonery in my eyes. She’s worse, because she knows exactly what she’s doing; devil sh!t. All those goddamn reality shows need to be destroyed.

      • Eli Pinilla

        It’s really not ignorant at all. Not the main point. There are a bunch of legit reasons to why bet or hbc’s exist for example. America has a f*cked up past. But her underlying point of segregation had merit. And it comes from a good place because she believes it’s for the better. Wether anybody agrees or not. It doesn’t change the intent. But she’s not taking any of that into consideration and is coming across as attacking. There’s a way where she could’ve said what she said and made it understandable to those who don’t agree even if they wouldn’t agree anyways.

        Mona Scott is the worst. And she is getting a pass from the main stream people who are attacking Stacy cuz they shoulda BEEN getting at Mona for the bs she passes off as entertainment. Where’s Bun B’s big post about Scott? Or Talib twitter rants about the “coonin” on that show?

      • Q.

        I don’t think anyone had a problem understanding Stacey. Her message was very simple. Too simple, in fact. First of all, the way she used the term “segregation” seemed disingenuous. in the context of American history, Segregation was the institutional separation of whites and Blacks, which was totally involuntary from the Black perspective. The enforcement of Segregation came from the top-down. Whites had the power to decide, Black folks didn’t. That’s not the case at BET. 1) BET is not exclusive to Black people 2) BET is not even Black-owned or run anymore, so her point about BET “segregating” itself is invalid.

        As far as the BET Awards…Comparing the Oscars to the BET Awards is not a truthful comparison because the BET Awards honor primarily Black people BY DESIGN (nothing wrong with that), whereas the Oscars are supposed to honor and represent excellence in film INTERNATIONALLY, by design. The Oscars are supposed to be inclusive, according to what their mission is. Now, if they said the Oscars were designed to just honor white people in films, that would be one thing. But they claim its for everyone, and their membership is not reflective of that. That’s the problem. Black actors, producers, and writers generate BILLIONS for the film industry, but they still don’t acknowledge Black achievement or other so-called minorities either. The whole BET argument is just a smokescreen to throw people off the issue.

        And I don’t see the comparison between Stacey Dash and Mona Scott, but you brought her up again. I will say that the only people giving her shows a “pass” are the people who buy into the coonery that those shows promote. I personally don’t buy into that sh!t. I highly doubt Talib buys into it. I don’t know about Bun, but there are plenty of Black people who are critical of those ratchet shows. But again, the white-run networks are greenlighting that trash, so there’s complicitness on both sides in the fvckery.

      • Eli Pinilla

        “I don’t think anyone had a problem understanding Stacey. Her message was very simple. Too simple, in fact.”

        Exacty. This is what I’m saying. Everything else you said after that is why her point is being taken the way it is. But her underlying point still has merit. But she can’t just say it the way she said cuz it makes it seem as if she doesn’t care about why bet exist. And why we are where we are in regards to race realtions and segregation in general…

        I bring her up cuz she’s actually in the act of doi ng what Stacy is being attacked for. Where’s the outrage is what I’m saying. Not from you or me. But from the twitter world. Where’s the attention for that? Or the outrage? People are Angier at Stacy for saying it then Mona for doing it.

      • Q.

        But tell me, which point is Stacey making that has merit?? I don’t see it.

        Mona Scott is a behind-the-scenes marketer and producer. I know little about her, but I know she’s not on TV peddling anti-Black rhetoric for white approval and attention. That’s what Stacey is doing. Talking against her own people for a damn check. She’s a mediawhore. I don’t support either one of them in what they’re doing. But obviously Stacey is more visible because she’s in front of the camera at Fox.

      • Eli Pinilla

        That we are all Americans and that there shouldn’t be seperarion. That’s the main point. Your adding everything else to it, which I completely agree with. But if you take all that away, there is merit to what she’s saying. All the above mentioned by you is why it’s not that way. But it doesn’t take away from what should be. That’s where her message gets lost.

        How do u know she’s doing it for a check? You think she’s just saying it to pander to white people? I don’t know either way, but I’m not just gonna,assume. Mona I know gets paid. It’s all her idea. She makes the decisions. Nothing anybody ever says can top something someone does. What’s worse? Talking that panders or actions that pander?

      • Q.

        Well, the fact that segregation and racial discrimination is WRONG is a no-brainer, man. Every civil human being knows that. So that little simple bean of truth wrapped in a big burrito of bullsh!t doesn’t really validate what she’s saying. And Stacey is a Fox pundit. She’s on the payroll, mydude. She’s been fvcking with Fox ever since she started speaking out as a Republican.

        And actions and words are both important, especially public speaking. Because what will happen is that racist lawmakers and corporations will use the sound bites of these designated coons to craft policies against us, Blacks and Latinos. They’ll take the words of one or two coons and castigate a whole race by what they say. It’s a game.

      • Eli Pinilla

        I’m not saying that she’s valid about anythings she’s saying. She’s not. But there’s merit to it because the same reasons that it does exist are the reasons it shouldnt. That small little bit is what has merit. She just stated it in her own right wing way. She’s speaking about it from the opposite perpective. She could’ve easy said ” BET shouldn’t exist because the reasons we needed our own network shouldn’t have happened in the first place for us to need one”. Very simple and more reasonable then what she said. My bad if she works there. I read my news at this point. I don’t watch that shit on tv from either perpective unless it’s actual news. Not debates. I leave that to espn….

        I don’t think anything she says could ever do that. Not extreme opinions like that anyways. Same reason Donald Trump won’t be president. There will be people that agree with it, and their true colors will show. But by and large, people like you and others in places of power with your opinion ( which is the majority, me included) would never let that happen. So yea, I only bring up Mona, cuz that’s someone who really deserves the shade that’s coming Stacy Dashes way. She runs shit that is directly influencing the opinion of others and to an extent, the actions of others. Especially the ones in the show.

  • cain455

    stacy dash for president 2016 lol

  • big brain

    B.E.T doesn’t have a news show, black people the only race without news program. But they play stereotypes all day on there programs, just like the Grammy black nominations. She is a sellout so is BET

    • Celz

      Yea because it’s a white channel.

    • Edonus

      But news in general is so f%$ked up thee days. news doesnt really educate you or inform you like it once did. Now news is basically propaganda machines working for a group. Even the groups I support news channels are the same. The problem is that generations of people have been created to not be able to think for themselves. Not just black people but all people. They need others to do it for them.

      B.E.T was bought by Viacom…… they got rid of rap city that debuted and interviewed all rap acts from almost underground to mainstream….. made 106 and Park, turned video shows into a voting system (probably corrupt) aimed at teenagers. And now we wonder why we hit songs by people with no skill or message. Thats just one example.

      B.E.T tried to have a news show once but its was so blatantly black centric it would register as comical to disgusting. You cant just throw a news show out there and expect it to catch. You have to build and nurture an audience first then lock them down and expand.

  • Anjali Joti

    She’s right

  • Jmo-Texas

    On one hand, Stacy Dash is an idiot and shouldnt be allowed to speak. On the other hand, BET is actually horrible..they complain about blacks not being recognized in a positive light for great achievements..then turn around and air horrible programming like Love & Hip Hop and other reality shows that show the “bottom-of-the-barrel” black folks that make us all look bad. Hey BET, how about putting some programming on that shows great family units and great black-owned family businesses?? “Not enough viewers” you say? How about “all money aint good money”..meaning you want to show black folks acting foolish for the viewers/sponsers/money, at the expense of our youth growing up thinking its normal to act like an idiot on a reality show. Come on now…just one of the many reasons I “cut the cable”…now Im back to allowing my kids to watch what “I” want them to watch, not what you choose to show them.

  • The big point that everyone is missing is this….BET ISN’T BLACK OWNED ANYMORE! So if the complaint is that we are segregating ourselves, that’s wrong as sh*t. Bottom line, we don’t even own BET. We started it, but we don’t own sh*t. So she should actually be complaining to White folks. But Stacy Dash isn’t educated. If she’s complaining about Black Awards shows, she would be more accurate if she targeted the NAACP Image Awards. But sh*t like that is too positive for her bullsh*t….

  • ApricotNapalm

    Viacom (white owned) BET for gamblers, Nic for kids, CMT for country dudes, MTV for that demographic. I get her point, but it doesnt add up. On 1 level an attempt at continued segregation is obvious (if u can call it that) but there is no valid alternative. Other than change the name, which is a bit much….

  • TheBlackItalian

    Stop pretending like she don’t make a valid point tho.

    • Q.

      She doesn’t.

        She does tho, it is just how she said it.

      HOW IS STAY DASH MAKING A VALID POINT WHEN SHE WORKED FOR BET AFTER IT WAS PURCHASED BY VIACOM FOR YEARS ON THE TV SHOW THE GAME??? DO WORRY I WILL WAIT!!!

  • Papi Peligro

    Awarding $1 million to the guy sitting in his pajamas on the couch watching Survivor? Giving a blue ribbon to the kid who stayed home from field day? Giving a Nobel Peace Prize to a President who escalated wars in Iraq and Afghanistan?

  • Q.

    Stacey Bedwench is totally off the rails. I like that shot she took at Obama–that was slick. LOL

    Now, what her simple azz failed to acknowledge is that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is an institution which honors excellence in film INTERNATIONALLY, so by default you would expect its membership to be more diverse, at least ethnically. Well, it isn’t. The Academy is 94% white, less than 4% Black and Latino, almost 80% male, with the median age over 60. This means that mainly OLD WHITE MEN are evaluating ALL of the movies and handing out awards. So basically, what Stacey is telling us is that white men make the rules, and we should just shut up and accept it.…Y’all agree with that? …No? Okay, then this means the Academy needs to revise its membership. Period. This means they need to bring in more women, more Black folks, more Latin folks, more Asians, more gays, and a hell of a lot more young people to balance that b!tch out. They should have done that DECADES ago. So yes, people have every right to b!tch about the Oscars and the lack of diversity. BET is not a Black-owned, Black run network. It is only Black cosmetically, so that was a deceptive comparison off top. And she has a sh!toad of nerve spitting on BET, especially when they put food in her mouth! So WTF is this bird talking about???

    • Janolyn Jackson

  • ytgarner

    So it’s okay for other cultures to have their own tv channels but not okay for blacks? Whites have their own Latino’s have their own I see Itailian cook shows but blacks can’t have one and if blacks do were trying to be separate? Lol She’s brainwashed and blind to the facts. As Paul Mooney said ” white America does not want us to have nothing ”

    • Janolyn Jackson

      I agree with you. It’s always a problem when blacks want to venture out an design something specific to the black race, yet and still the black race is the only race that is accepting of other cultures. No other culture embraces the black race the way the black race embraces other cultures.

  • dbfromdc

    STACEY DASH IS A STUPID BITCH!!! I HAVE BEEN WATCHING BET SINCE THE 80’S AND BET HAS NEVER SAID THE REST OF AMERICA IS RACIST!!! PLENTY OF WHITE PEOPLE HAVE WON BET AWARDS EVEN WHEN I THOUGHT THEY SHOULDN’T!!!

  • Markus

    What she doesn’t get which is odd for a woman of color is the reason BET,Black History Month,the NAACP and various other organizations and groups that basically promote support and assist themselves. How can we as the human race only acknowledge ourselves as only human beings when one group not only didn’t want to share and coexist with others,but put so many obstacles in place to impede the progress of other groups that didn’t look like them? BET exists because other networks didn’t give black people and black casted shows equal opportunity. The NAACP exists because the people in power at the time and to this day have to be reminded that black people are human beings as well and entitled to have the same air to breathe and land on which to live without repercussions. Black History Month is a sad reminder of the men and women who have made contributions to this country and this planet under the idea that one day we all would recognize each other not as separate races but as a collective unit of human beings. The powers that be resisted and have continued to resist that idea. If there’s no Hattie McDaniel, there’s no Stacey Dash on Fox News being ungrateful and blind to the fact that everything she says shouldn’t exist was a reaction to the devils of the past’s action to dominate and rule this world in a greedy and ungodly manner.

    I know this point has been made before, but BET is owned by the same people she’s defending. Our people don’t own that sh** anymore. For the most part, anyone black working for the network are puppets as well, in my opinion.

  • bigbeeinthebuilding

    BET hasnt been BET in a long time. I havent watched it since Rap City went off.

  • it’s like people don’t know BET is owned by Viacom which makes her whole argument invalid

  • Janolyn Jackson

    I swear, when I listen and read what this idiot of a human being has said she makes my head hurt. A mentally challenged person would make better sense in defending their position. For her to say that black people have decided to have their own space is ignorant of her. Black people had to create their own space because salvery prohibited blacks from participating in certain areas of life. This dumb bitch has no argument to support her imaginary views. I swear, I don’t want to waste any more time trying to education her dumb ass.
