Actress turned political pun pundit for Fox Snooze Stacey Dash has fully embraced the dark side of the force. In her latest effort to separate herself from any melanin in her skin, she weighed in on the Oscars’ lack of diversity by saying that “We have to make up our minds…Either we want to have segregation or integration. And 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.”
We’re not going to go down the rabbit hole of just how backwards Dash’s line of reasoning is, and that she herself has participated in black award shows and sitcoms in the past, and appeared on the cover of many, many black magazines, because feeding the trolls will just keep them fat. We have just accepted that the Stacey Dash that gifted us with sheer nipple ninjitsu in Kanye West’s “All Falls Down” video is gone, never to return.
But there are remnants of her once relatable self still on the web…
In February of 2013 Dash launched a web series called “Normal,” years after she’d already established herself as a pro-NRA anti-Obama shill for the Right Wing. In what felt like an attempt at counter-programming her new stick-in-the-mud image, she imagined herself as an average American woman working through a divorce and separation from her daughter on her birthday. As the odd woman out, she found solace in the everyday things that Republicans love to rally against but damn sure partake in behind closed doors, like smoking weed, masturbating and having sex with gay people. For real.
