Meredith Vieira Schools Stacey Dash About Wage Inequality - Watch Here!

Meredith Vieira totally owns Fox News’ Stacey Dash while talking about wage inequality in America in this interview from The Meredith Vieira Show, which aired today.

“Well because I feel like it’s an excuse. It’s the same thing with race, it’s an excuse. Stop making excuses. If there are opportunities seize them and be prepared for them and be the best if that’s what it takes. If you have to be extraordinary then be extraordinary,” Stacey said on the show.

“I feel like we are fighting an uphill battle, when you look at just the numbers we make 78 cents for every dollar that a man makes. The rate we are going my daughter who is 22 will be 65 when there is finally pay equality. There’s something wrong, there is something clearly wrong. I don’t know if it’s us just not taking responsibility, we are not given the opportunity,” Meredith retorted. Later on, things get a little cringeworthy.

    people like stacey dash don’t believe in numbers. numbers are clearly the devil’s arithmetic. here’s a bible, the only knowledge you’ll ever need!

  • The Batman

    Stacey Dash is a self-hating black person.

  • CopperCutie

    She is too ignorant to realize how ignorant she is.

  • k.

    I don’t understand how you can be so absolutely ignorant and clueless (get it?). Statistics show that women of color make even less compared to a white woman’s 78 cents on a (white) man’s dollar – and these women are working their butts off trying to make a life for their kids and themselves. They work harder than Stacey has ever done; doesn’t that mean they should be more successful than her? Just shameful

  • FaceOfThe_E

    Way to try to shove the feminist agenda bullcrap fest down the public’s throat. Again, Meredith needs to show me where women are working the same exact jobs as men and just as qualified, yet receiving lesser pay. She needs to show me the proof. Quit looking at women vs men salaries and look at the jobs and positions. Females take the majority of lesser jobs because it’s all they can handle, they make no more or no less than men who are now taking on lesser jobs due to outsourcing. Females who are taking on the real jobs are getting paid just as much as the man working in the same field. So Meredith and the rest of these women, who are looking out for their own benefit instead of women’s benefit needs to shut up. She’s mad she’s making less than Matt Lauer, anybody with proper eyes, ears and brain cells, can see why he gets paid more.

  • FaceOfThe_E

    Just because Stacey is beautiful it does not mean she didn’t work her butt off to get in her position. If she didn’t, she wouldn’t be where she is right now.

    Stop trying to make everything out to be about gender and race inequality, such a lazy excuse. If some women decided that completing school was too much or got pregnant, so they were unable to receive a higher education– how is that the man’s fault? Stop making poor decisions in you wouldn’t be in poor situations. Jobs should not pay women extra because they have children, they should pay all people equally. If women want a man’s salary, then they need to go work a man’s job or go find a husband, who makes a bigger salary, due to the nature of his work. Otherwise, shut up and stop complaining and getting knocked up by losers and then blaming gender inequality for your shortcomings.

  • k.

    Well honey, as Meredith mentioned above, women are less likely to have the same opportunities as that of a man, thus making it an inequality issue

  • k.

    Women don’t just “get” pregnant, it usually takes two. Not everyone can afford an abortion or contraceptives, and many more can’t afford higher education. Therefor they have no choice but to make the best of it

  • Milla

    Love it! That Fox News mouthpiece has no clue.

  • Kay

    When woman speak up about gender inequality, and statistics report 78 cents to the dollar, what they are saying is for performing the same job, in the same capacity woman make less. This is regardless of whether or not the woman has children. Same degree, same position, same productivity, and woman receive 78 cents to the dollar, when they should be earning the same.

  • Kay

    You probably have not actually looked into this research, as you probably do not care much and don’t feel this affects you

  • Kay

    Meanwhile, Stacey does not seem very intelligent, as she has great difficulty arguing her perspective and probably has never worked as hard as many ppl working 10x as hard, making $$$ for being attractive and an easily manipulated mascot.

  • Blinknone

    No she’s basically right. Your success in life is almost entirely dictated by the choices YOU make, not the result of some victim status.

  • Blinknone

    She’s much closer to the truth than Meredith. Success in life is 90% perspiration and about 10% gender/race. Your result is almost entirely dictated by the choices you make and how hard you work for it.

  • Lex

    Are white people who have been saying the same things she is now for centuries “self-hating” white people?

    Why can’t black people have differing opinions? We have every right to fill every side, argument, and point of view just like white people do. White people are never questioned in their decisions, blacks always are.
    I really don’t agree with her per say, but it’s HER opinion.

  • Lex

    Ironically they don’t post the statistics of white women versus black women versus Hispanic women, versus Asian women.
    Why is that? When they say women we know they’re really only talking about white women and it’s really funny that only white women in entertainment are complaining about this when they make the most in their field over men.
    The pay gap between male entertainers and female entertainers is huge. Where is the outcry to fix that?

    Someone will always have it better than you and whites have it better than everyone yet they aren’t speaking up about that either.

  • Lex

    So true, my grandmother didn’t like white men talking down to her. She started her own business and is now very successful in her field for over 40 years. Been in newspapers and everything.
    She’s also a BLACK woman, yet white women who get paid more than black women on average are complaining on behalf of white women only, when there’s a huge race pay gap too that they completely overlook purposely.
    Fact of the matter is in America you can write your own ticket and complaining only gets you so far.
    Women in entertainment also make the most, so these idiots really need to shut up unless they want to take a huge pay cut to even it out to what men get in the same field for the same job.

  • Lex

    The numbers say female entertainers make way more than male entertainers for the same job. Should female entertainers take a pay cut too?

  • Lex

    Exactly, my black grandmother is a business owner for over 40 years because of that very belief. A white man talked down to her(her boss), she decided to take her life into her own hands, saved her money, and started a business with friends. Now she and they all have their own black family businesses with women at the helm.
    The worst part is white female entertainers who get paid the most in their field over men, over blacks, over everyone are doing all this complaining about the pay scale. Who are they complaining on behalf of?

  • tris

    Stacy Dash is a bondfide idiot.

  • tris

    The crazy right winger/teabagger is back.

  • tris

    Stacy is a black Sarah Palin

  • Kay

    An occasional homeless to Harvard sorry does not mean that’s the actual truth. You can occasionally find outliers in anything. Even in science you can follow a proven protocol and get different results. A story about your black grandmother doesn’t provide evidence about how an entire society works, or its opportunities and loopholes. This just show how small ppl think and how they cannot see or understand beyond their small world and experiences. Your example of your grandmother are like saying Oprah and Obama must be proof racism doesn’t exist. Or when ppl debate sexual assaults with that one example that describes a situation in their favor. Wouldn’t it be nice and simple if those absolutes existed. My fathers a lawyer from Jamaica. He’s winning in life but I’m not naive enough to generalize his journey, as not everyone who has followed his path, with his drive, determine, and talent will arrive at the same destination. Just because a situation has worked in YOUR favor, or even mine does not make it RIGHT. That’s being complacent with the inqualities in society, THAT’s settling for mediocracy when we could all be trying to make our society better, not just for our own selfish interests. I mean, to suggest that “well this is how it is, and you just gotta play the game” not very progressive. How do you think it got to the point where your grandmother was even ALLOWED, to start her own business, and have it grow and florish without ppl before her, and maybe including her standing up to progress our society (which you all refer to as complaints). Voicing an opinion and encouraging change now equals complaints. I personally am grateful for those who complained before me so that woman could go to college, divorce dirtbag abusive husbands, go to work, vote, etc. All those silly little complaints.

  • ElectricFire

    Except that’s NOT what the research shows, Kay. It shows that women just make 78 cents on the dollar as a whole. Not the same degree, not the same position, not the same productivity. That’s why the 78 cents is meaningless. In actuality, women make about 95 cents to a man’s dollar, and the remaining five cents are tied to women’s desire for more flexible hours and lack of desire to negotiate their salary.

  • ElectricFire

    This should say “Stacey Dash schools Meredith Vieira about wage inequality.” Meredith Vieira looks like a complete fool here rehashing a statistic that has been proven to be junk years ago. There is no wage gap. There hasn’t been a wage gap for years. It’s actually kind of embarrassing for Meredith Vieira to get taken to the cleaners by an actress on her own show like that.

  • jane

    i side with Stacey. Women aren’t supposed to make less legally, but they often do make less because they don’t negotiate for the full salary during hiring interviews, they don’t ask for raises regularly like men will, they go down to p/t hours to have kids and take a reduction to do it, they take more sick days then men to care for babies and relatives. etc. so their paychecks end up much less. not because they earn less, but because they ask for less.

  • Kay

    There is so much priviledge in this country so many aren’t even aware that they have it. SMH. It’s just the norm for some, meanwhile they pat themselves on the back thinking they started from scratch

  • Kay

    And it really shows your blind support and loyalty to your side of the argument to say Meredith Vieira got taken to the cleaners by that actress as Stacey dash kept repeating the same sentence and was unable to articulate her point of view or support her stance. People on either side of an argument can successfully debate if they can at least back up what they are saying and Stacey failed to do so. I wondered if she believed it herself or was passionate about that idea or maybe had just be told that by her black grandmother or someone and never questioned it or did her own research.

  • Kay

    From what I can see Stacey is a pretty face and nice body: 3 ex-husbands, 2 children, 6 engagements… married 3 times because she said “A lot of it was me needing a man to define me. I’m finally at a point where I want to define myself. ” Hard work! Reminds me of those privileged woman who go to college just to marry a husband who is affluent. Let’s not forget she’s related to Damon Dash, an ignorant man who refers to woman as Chatty patties,and doesn’t pay child support while he publically bashes his ex-wifes success on instagram, and his children plead him to stop. These ideas were clearly instilled in this family, and they have since rarely used their own logic.

  • Lex

    Very cute bs you wasted time typing about a woman you don’t even know. Stopped reading your garbage at “allowed”, go play in traffic, moron.

  • Kay

    Lol, and there it is. This gave me a more clear image of the type of character that comes along with opinions such as yours and Stacey dash.

  • ElectricFire

    And Meredith Vieira couldn’t articulate her point of view or support her stance. She just reached to a stat that has been proven false years ago. Stacey Dash didn’t have to say anything else after Meredith put her foot in her mouth so badly.

  • Milla

    Are those numbers scientific? I doubt it, sounds like you believe in the myth of meritocracy.

  • Lex

    Says the idiot making assumptions. Get a life.

  • FaceOfThe_E

    Well honey boo boo, women have lesser opportunities because they can’t perform the jobs. There are just some jobs we are unable to perform, due to biological reasons. Stop making excuses.

  • FaceOfThe_E

    Crazy because I haven’t been corrupted by the press and other extreme liberals. You wonder why black people are burning ghettos to the ground, women have turned into oversexual sluts and men/women are getting their gender confused. This is the reason!

  • FaceOfThe_E

    I am a woman and this gender inequality has not effected me because instead of making excuses I worked my tail off to get what I can get to support myself. All stats are biased and inaccurate, if you believe every statistic you read, shame on your part.

    As I said before. Look at the jobs women are working and look at the jobs men are working. Is it fair that we pay a waitress as much as a construction worker, who is actually getting his hands dirty and doing REAL work?

  • FaceOfThe_E

    Because she’s pretty and has a nice body she’s not working hard? Because she’s pretty she went to college to find a “husband who is affluent” instead of going there furthering herself education and career-wise?

    Some chicks kill me with their jealousy. Perhaps, if women stop trashing genetically blessed women for being as gorgeous as they are successful then there would be more successful women in the world. Instead we got single-moms, high-school/college drop outs, or just piss poor sissies mad because they suck at life and instead of doing something about it, they create excuses for their shortcomings, reminds me of another group of people.

  • FaceOfThe_E

    I’m well aware it takes two to get pregnant, but who has to live with the consequences of sleeping around for what we now call “empowerment.” Like I said, stop making stupid decisions. These modern-day feminist like to speak of freedom of sexuality and empowerment, yet they don’t wanna live with the consequences of their perversion. If you want to express your sexuality freely, find a rich man and get that child support. But it’s no man’s fault a woman chose a loser and deadbeat for a baby daddy and now living on the poverty line and trying to use gender inequality as an excuse for it.

  • FaceOfThe_E

    Find me the proof that that’s what those statistics implied. I believe those statistics are talking about men vs women salaries in general. The report is biased bullcrap made to convince people, like you, that there is really this big gender gap, when there isn’t. Male employees at McDonalds might as well scream inequality when their salaries are compared to female engineers.

  • FaceOfThe_E

    Female actresses these days are the main one’s complaining about the gender gap. Truthfully speaking, actresses that can actually attract an audience to a theater such as Jolie and Bullock, they get paid the big bucks and rightfully so. But then you get these actresses like Kristen Stewart who is only riding the success of a popular book and girls’ fascination with Edward Cullen aka Robert Pattinson. Nobody cares about the actresses, they are replaceable eye candy or a part in a story. Men came to see another man save the day, the women came to see a good looking lead actor. Nobody cares to see the woman, ever… ever. Same thing with sports. WNBA will never be the NBA. I don’t care how many documentaries Spike Lee direct.

  • Kay

    Actually, not envious… this is the impression of got from her previous interviews in which she talked about her love life, prior to her transition towards politics. Not jealous either, as I get more attention then i’d like for my looks, bit of a distraction from more important things. While I do think Stacey’s a gorgeous women and I plan to remain in such great shape as I age, I must say I respected her more before I heard all her opinions on societal issues. And not because of her side of the stance, because I love these sort of debates but rather due to her delivery. I’m also no sissy. I am a hard-worker soon to get my doctorate degree…Next Sunday!!! I complete my comp exam this week and am enjoying some extra free time browsing social media :) I don’t have any shortcomings to create excuses for…I just want what I have for other people as well. I will always question the status quo and seek to improve our society.
    By the way:
    Envy is when you want what someone else has, but jealousy is when you’re worried someone’s trying to take what you have

  • FaceOfThe_E

    Thank you! I’ve been trying to tell this to women and black people alike. I am a black woman and my struggles had nothing to do with race or gender. If I was gonna be something, I was gonna have to work my tail off, like everybody else to get it. Everybody is fighting for a position, so you gotta work. Do we have to work harder to appeal to the opposite sex or another race. Depends. I feel more like we have to conform more to their tastes, but if people have a harder time doing that, then they would have to work harder.

    I just think inequality is a poor excuse. Women and blacks are more respected to say, then ever, yet they still hold themselves back, over some crap that didn’t even happen to them, but to their ancestors. Move on dot com.

  • Kay

    Statistics shouldn’t imply anything, that’s really a misuse of stats, like how companies use stats to advertise. Statistics should directly show a relationship, cause, or effect and anything “implied” is really considered to be questions leading to future research.
    But if you’re really interested I generally use pubmed or ebsco host databases. You have to have access via account for most scholarly databases. That’s where to find trusted evidence-based information.

  • FaceOfThe_E

    Kay, stop it. Black women have been working like dogs since slavery, so they don’t complain about the gender gap. They do what they have to do to survive.

    Blacks and women in the day actually had something to complain about and the people listened and opportunities came in. Women are still fussing about gender inequality because they feel they are entitled to a pay raise because they are women. You do the math. Motherhood is a job when it’s convenient, then it’s not a job… when it’s convenient. If you feel you’ve been given an opportunity, then what are you even complaining about?

  • FaceOfThe_E

    Meredith wants Lauer’s salary. She feels entitled to it because she’s a freakin’ woman. I’m so sick of these fake feminists.

  • FaceOfThe_E

    I was not talking about you exactly, just women who sees Stacey as fortunate because of her good-looks or connections, instead of accepting that hot chicks can also be smart and have an opinion. I’ll apologize for that misunderstanding. But back to the point, Instead of making a point of why Stacey is wrong, in which I completely agree with her, you resorted to ad-hominem. Instead of finding reasons for the gender gap, you resorted to some biased crap stat that old Meredith pointed out. There is a reason why women are being paid less than men. Compare the jobs not the salaries.
    Stacey appeared to have handled herself just fine. I didn’t see where Meredith put her in her place as Jared claims. Stacey made her point and she stuck with it. She seems to have respect for her peers and elders, so I doubt she was gonna blow up on Meredith, like I would have, if she tried to make me look bad on her show.

  • Kay

    1. First of all, I am a black woman, so don’t tell me about myself, my mother, my grandmother, friends, and neighbors, etc.

    2. While it may not be reported many black women and their organizations do have issue with gender/race-related wage inequality, mainstream media just chooses not to share that.

    3. “Back in the day” during Woman’s sufferage movements people did not just listen and opportunities came in, it required a lot of hard work and “complaints”, also this was racial segregation in this movement

    4. You actually stated the problem: Black women have been working like dogs since slavery, so they don’t complain about the gender gap. They do what they have to do to survive. —so your content that ppl work like dogs since slavery…no desire for progress or change? I guess as long as your happy fuck every else, huh? That’s called settling for meritocracy.

    5. Again with that word you love “complaining”, I’m voicing my opinion that there are clearly problems with the system that require change. Do not fear the evolution of America. I haven’t had to jump through the same obstacles as mother, who hasn’t had face the same challenges as her mother. I have high hopes for the opportunities of my future children/daughter, and other ppls as well. I’m a healthcare professional, who happens to give a fuck about other ppl.

  • Kay

    Cool response.

  • FaceOfThe_E

    I have access to it as well. All statistics are implied. None of it is accurate, regardless of the source. You can’t survey a bunch of receptionists, assistants and housekeepers and expect anywhere near the same numbers as men working in higher positions. However, if they survey all men and women working the same positions, with the same level of experience, there will be no gender gap.
