Stacey Dash Explains Why She Made an Oscars Appearance

Stacey Dash is opening up about her random and awkward appearance on stage at the 2016 Academy Awards held at the Dolby Theatre on Sunday (February 28) in Hollywood.

“You might be watching the Oscars and wondering why someone named Stacey Dash just walked across the stage. (Why was that funny anyway?),” the 49-year-old actress wrote on her Patheos blog.

Stacey then went on to explain why she went from being an Obama supporter to voting for Mitt Romney in 2012 and also talked about how she speaks out for black causes.

“I spoke out against the #OscarsSoWhite controversy. My take? We need to stop complaining about white people oppressing us, we shouldn’t boycott the Oscars, and we need to support Chris Rock the host,” Stacey said.

“Which brings me to the joke. 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.

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.)

Anyway, this is a first. A beginning.

So that’s who I am. Nice to meet you.”

    99% of white America is not aware of this D-list star’s year of disowning her own race. Which is why there was no reaction from the crowd. 100% of Stacey Dash is not aware that she was made to play the fool in front of those who know about her ignorant nonsense.
