IFWT_Stacy Dash

Incase you missed it, Stacey Dash was a surprise guest at last nights Oscars. She showed up on stage after being introduced by Chris Rock as the “new director” of the Oscars’ “Minority Outreach Program.” In her ten-second appearance, Dash made the audience cringe when she shouted, “Happy Black History Month.” which was extra strange as Dash has previously spoken against celebrating the month. Now, in her latest blog post the ‘Clueless’ actress is explaining her awkward cameo.

In a blog post titled, “Who is Stacey Dash and why did she just walk across the #Oscar stage?” Stacey Dash wrote,

“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.”

She later added,

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.)
