Actress Stacey Dash recently went on Fox News program Fox & Friends and made some comments about Black History month that have the black community embarrassed to claim her as one of their own. In case you missed it, here’s what she had to say:

“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 B.E.T. and the BET Awards and the Image Awards, where you’re only awarded if you’re black. If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms. It’s a double standard.” Her points may have sounded reasonable to some until she added this: “There shouldn’t be a Black History Month. You know? We’re Americans. Period. That’s it.”

After her statement people set out to trade her in for Adele and El Chapo, see the memes below:

twoCousin Damon Dash took an interview with author and social commentator, Dr. Boyce Watkins, on his Your Black World podcast. The mogul had this to say about Stacey’s views:

“She didn’t have to say it there. I would’ve preferred her, if she had that opinion, to say it on BET or have a conversation with someone black, and let someone black have a conversation back with her as opposed to some white man nodding his head.” Dash added, “I think it was the way it happened. But I think that’s her job right now – to invoke emotion on that platform by saying things that are gonna stimulate the conversation. But either way, she’s my cousin.”

He also referred to her statements as “annoying” and revealed that “it really isn’t the best thing to hear Dash associated with ‘cooning.'”
