“I agree with her,” Gates told DJ SussOne. “It’s only two types of people: real people and fake people. It’s no such thing as color in my realm.”
On the other end of the conversation, actress Gabrielle Union was not feeling Dash’s comments about ending African-American centered award shows like the BET Awards and the NAACP Image Awards. The Associated Press spoke with Union about the topic.
“Who’s that? Who’s Stacey Dash? Is she like related to Dame Dash? Was she on Roc-A-Fella?” joked Union. “I heard of a crazy lady once, maybe last week, but I don’t know what her name is.”
The Being Mary Jane star added, “It’s like why there’s a need for [Nate Parker’s Nat Turner biopic] Birth Of A Nation, the Country Music Awards, and the ALMA Awards. If you don’t see yourself reflected in mainstream awards, you tend to create your own… the more we focus on inclusion and a true representation of this country, I think that crazy lady will have less to say.”
