Why I Say What I Say, Even Though I Drive Whoopi, BET, and Most Other Black People Crazy

Screen Shot 2016-01-23 at 11.00.28 AM

If you’ve been paying attention to social media lately, you may have seen that my name is trending.  It seems every other black person in America has disowned me.

That’s because I said things like “Black History Month” and BET shouldn’t exist, since they further divide us.  I feel like it’s hypocritical to say that we’re all the same, but then to self-segregate into little enclaves of society.  Also, I think the #OscarSoWhite controversy is lame, because black people should not demand that every segment of society who watches movies be reflected in the number of Oscars given to actors and actresses.  That’s just not how the world works.

“She only says what Fox News pays her to say,” one commenter said — echoing thousands.

This I will tell you is not true.  Trust me, Fox does not always like what I have to say.

So, I thought I’d take a moment to explain why I say what I say, even though people like Whoopi Goldberg (whom I admire), Black media enterprises, and even my family to criticize me.

I grew up on the streets of the South Bronx.  Politics, to me, was downstream from my normal life.  I was busy trying to survive my childhood — it wasn’t great.  I saw my first dead body when I was three years old.  I have experienced the hardship of life and all those things taught me to survive.  I’ve been through a lot. (My upcoming book There Goes My Social Life: From Clueless to Conservative has the harrowing — and hopefully inspirational — details.)

But here’s the thing.  Even though most of my friends and family always have supported the Democrats (and even I had an Obama bumper sticker during 2008), liberalism never added up.

What are the three major institutions that black people are concerned about in society as being unfair to minorities?

Universities (riddled with #BlackLivesMatter protests), Hollywood (#OscarsSoWhite), and major urban cities (which have been described as declaring “open season” on black men).

Yet, ALL of these areas are dominated by LIBERALS. 

Why the hell do we keep doing the same thing and expect a different result?

We don’t have to.

In my life, I’ve seen a lot and this is what I have found: REALITY GETS A VOTE.  When you don’t subscribe to “traditional values,” things happen in less-than-ideal ways.  I had two pregnancies outside of the benefit of marriage.  While I wouldn’t trade my kids for the world — they are my life — I know that my choices made things harder on me and them than needed.  I also saw with my own eyes what happens when people start living off the government, the way it emasculates them, demoralizes them, and steals their dignity.

I didn’t go to school to learn politics.  Rather, I opened my eyes and saw the world around me.

Yet.

Black people — who say they are more than the color of their skin — mercilessly reinforce stereotypes with more passion and vigor than the KKK.  You dare not step away from the way “all black people must think” or else.

It could be that I am congratulated for being an “independent thinker.”  But apparently only white people can do that,  at least according to the arbiters of blackness.

Isn’t it funny how Clarence Thomas — once associated with the black panthers — is no longer considered “black” because of his beliefs?  Isn’t it funny how Bill Clinton — as white as the driven snow — was called by Toni Morrison the “first black President” simply because he was a “single-parent household, born poor, working-class, saxophone-playing, McDonald’s-and-junk-food-loving boy from Arkansas.”

Got that?

Clarence Thomas isn’t black because he is conservative.

Bill Clinton is black, because he’s a poor, fast food loving boy from Arkansas.

Here’s what I believe:

1.  Liberal black Americans do not get to decide who is black and who is not black.

2. Black Americans can believe whatever the hell they want!  We do NOT have to swallow everything that Democrats shovel down our throats, simply because of our skin.

That’s why I speak out.  Not because I’m on Fox.   I’m on Fox, because I refuse to back down.  I owe it to my son and daughter to at least try to work toward a world where black people can speak out on any matter they want without the fear of incredible backlash.

It’s 2016.  Let’s stop taking our marching orders from Democratic slave drivers.  They have taken our votes and repaid us by ruining our colleges and large cities.  They are responsible for #OscarsSoWhite.

Want to truly make a difference?

Stop missing the point of the civil rights movement. Which, by the way, we won. 

Stop looking backward when segregation made racial independence our only option. 

Don’t listen to liberals when they say that integration was a failure and that our true strength is in separatism.

Today we witness this in everything.  Civil rights confabs that are far more social than political. Conversations about the “state of black America” as if we still share a singular destiny. Congressional black caucuses… Black student associations… Now, in the promised land of freedom, we seek the lost Eden of separatism?

No. Let’s come together with the understanding that freedom is seized only by individuals. Let’s quit being brainwashed into believing that we should be happy with the separatism the liberal elite has endorsed.

With every special black interest group, we’re falling right into the plantation mentality they want us to have. I mean, how dare we want to be considered people of talent and character not JUST people of color! We must be integrated into the mainstream of every aspect of life… especially (for me and this particular argument) HOLLYWOOD.  There, the liberals perpetuate THE most hypocritical bigotry I’ve ever seen. 

Join me, my fellow brothers and sisters: start thinking — and voting — for your AMERICAN DREAM.

    The way of the world, huh…Well spoken, SD.

  • Shane Dabbs

    She speaks volumes, She not only promotes the word “beauty” in every aspect from her appearance to what she has to say. I am not some crazed fan I have seen the Clueless movie that’s it so other than that I am a fan of what she stands for and everyone black and white ” I am white” should stand up thank her and embraces what she said!

  • Jeremy L. Chase

    Bravo!! TRUTH! We have more of an economic class issue in our country than racism but you would never know that from what the liberal media tells you. According to them its all about race.

  • Carl Poole III

    So there are no more ‘race’ issues to be dealt with in America, only socioeconomic issues? Do we live in the same country, right? I’m from Virginia, where we do STILL have issues to deal with that involve race. You know the state of Virginia, right? It’s a southern state of the United States of America. I’m just checking to be sure we are all talking about the same place.

  • Jeremy Chase

    I never said that carlos, reading comprehension must not be your strength. Civil rights did away with a majority of the things wrong with the country and over the years our society has slowly integrated. There will always be hate groups like the kkk or black lives matter but my statement was there is more of an economic issue than color issues in our current society. I promise you if the majority of white america was racist, you wouldnt have a black president.

  • Carl Poole III

    Mr. Chase, I don’t do insults. However, I do believe that it difficult to say that ‘civil rights did away with a majority of the things wrong with the country’ when the root the of problems caused by our issues of race have never truly been clearly defined for all Americans. Integration was one step begun more than half a century ago; a giant step, but still a single step along a path that we all struggle to walk today. Many socioeconomic problems that exist now in 2016 are tied intrinsically to problems with race. Ignoring one only serves to make dealing with the other more difficult. How you can seek to deal with one without the other makes no sense. I realize in this age of conservative political resurgence, folks are getting sick and tired of talking about race issues. However, can anyone of us say it isn’t a problem that effects us anymore when so many on the right no longer wish to explore what the ‘it’ is?

  • Jeremy Chase

    Um actually you do use insults asking if I am aware that virginia is part of our country you condescending fool. People’s choices determing success in more situations than color. People piss and moan that black folks get harsher sentances for jail than whites..thats due more to economics than color. A poor black man and a poor white man are both going to get screwed by the legal system.
    Its about money and not color. I was never provided any of this “white privelege” myth these fools are saying on tv. There are many people of color who have made better choices even than myself who have prospered. Color is not a limitation in today’s society. There may be isolated incidents, small pockets where some things haven’t progressed but it is not as widespread as portrayed on tv..case in pont..white cops shooting unarmed blacks. The % of that happening vs what blm or the news will have you believe is that it is daily. Not true at all. Last stats I checked it was under 5%. A whole 37 unarmed blacks were shot last year but you only know about the few white cops who were the aggressors. There were also around 30 unarmed whites shot but no one is talking about that. Probably because there are a lot more other issues than worrying about criminals getting killed for non compliance.

  • Jeremy Chase

    You don’t do insults? You condescendingly question me about virginia. So you do insults. I don’t live in the myth of white privilege or the country is against the black man. A poor white person and a poor black person have the same struggles. Its not about a racist system, its about choices and opportunities for people who have less wealth. GTFOH with that black victim garbage. It gets old.

  • Carl Poole III

    A little harmless mockery to make a point should NOT be considered an insult to you. I merely used satire to illustrate how despite living in the same country, we have VERY different views on the subject matter. At no point did I question your intellect, your level of reading comprehension, or call you a fool (i.e. your comment about me before the edit.).
    You have more or less made a constant string of assumptions in your responses about what I think and how I feel without once truly adding any constructive or thoughtful points to the conversation I have tried to have with you. You can’t even be bothered to get my name right, Mr. Chase.
    I think you could care less about what I think or how I feel about Ms. Dash’s article. You just want someone you argue with online. While there are many things I believe she’s way off on in her thinking, there are some points she makes that hit dead on.
    When you are ready to have a more constructive talk, I’ll be glad to participate further. In the meantime, I would like to suggest you try reading a book called ‘Black Lies, White Lies: The Truth According to Tony Brown’ (https://read.amazon.com/kp/embed?asin=B0027KRRPC&preview=newtab&linkCode=kpe&ref_=cm_sw_r_kb_dp_InRPwb1S5AE89).
    Tony Brown is former PBS television commentator and syndicated radio talk-show host. He is, quite frankly, at least 20 years ahead of us both in his thinking on the subject matters Ms. Dash has brought up. In 1990, he went from being an independent voter to joining the Republican Party. I’ll quote him a little to give you a taste of his thinking, then you do what you wish with this:
    “If 95 percent of the blacks were voting Republican, I`d become a Democrat. It`s a matter of mathematics and how numbers translate to strength and visibility. Bush (in 1988) got 10 percent of the black vote.
    If that percentage doubled, blacks would cease to be invisible and become a force in the party to be reckoned with. No longer would the Republican Party need the Southern strategy.”
    Please take the time to look at this man’s book. I almost certain it would interest you.

  • Jeremy L. Chase

    So your mockery is not an insult? So your trying to disguise insulting me by calling it mockery instead? Way to validate my point of proclaiming unjustified victimhoood. You can mock me but i respond its an insult? That is absolutely how the victim game works. If you don’t like my typo on your name then don’t respond. Anyways I will stick with supporting groups like Project 21 and Larry Elder who are truthful about the issues that plague the African American community

  • Craig

    Keep speaking out Stacy. I applaud your willingness to state your opinions in the face of harsh criticism and vile name calling. Your courage will give hope to others.

  • Gadget Tribe

    yes stacy! speak out! keep showing us how ignorant like the pale inferior white race you are. It’s not enough to bleach your skin, blonde your hair and were blue contacts to look like the pale, pasty whiny white people. But now you want to adopt their way of distorting history and whining about all of the things that blacks have achieved. If only the whites stopped playing the victim and using the race card. If they would spend more time working hard, they too might someday become like our President – the most powerful man in the world who of course is Black, because we all know that Blacks are smarter and more superior to the scared, weak and fragile whites.

  • Aurora Bean

    Those are her real eyes tho. .. Stacey is very health conscious almost OCD with it …. I can’t see her putting anything harmful or poisonus on her body. I certainly hope she wouldn’t do that … Stacey doesn’t even microwave her food hard to believe she would bleach her skin … her complexion is accurate her hair was always Sandy blonde … but those are definitely highlights

  • Carl Poole III

    While I can’t agree with much of what Ms. Dash wrote in this article, I must wholeheartedly object to the level of ignorance and confusion you have spewed out, Gadget. If you have valid points to make here, why would anyone dig through a mountain pseudo- rhetorical bullshit to find them?

  • Craig

    Obama is only half black as you like to point out Stacy’s ethnic makeup.
    Otherwise, your post was full of hate. Try again and try to be kinder.

  • Iamionis

    You can talk all you want, but you are speaking from a very narrow mindset, maybe going to school would help you comprehend a little better ma’am. You sound proud that you have your own way of thinking you should, but trust sistah girl you are not the only one, you are ignorant of coarse to politics, your are simply speaking your opinion and not facts which is fine your opinion is yours and nobody can take that away from you, what you don’t realize is that the black culture in itself is way more broad that your speaking of, for you to respond the way you did to an entire culture I question your common sense. What your saying we should not do has already been done by white America. Now I’m in noways Pro Black Anti White, I am very culturally diverse, bi-racial family members, my mom was a single mom and my brother was raise by the white males that attended our church which was mostly white, I am thankful to God for allowing me to grow up knowing that the white man is not my enemy, in fact in my personal life I have had more support from my white brothers and sisters than my black, but how dare I tell my black brothers and sisters to stop expressing themselves and forget about the way we have been treated as a people, or we don’t need awards that cater to us by us. I don’t support everything my black brother does, nor my white brother I live in a world where somebody is always going to think they are not treated equally. By creating a BET I an saying I will not complain about something when I can create a solution for me, and by all means this does not cancel out another man’s worth, just working hard to create an inviorment where my children can be proud of who they are no matter what the color of her or his skin is, it’s like me creating a positive place in my home for my family.

  • OneOfOne

    you really should consult spell check before you troll or attempt to troll anyone. her mindset is shared by many more than a few and is usually attacked by the blacker than thou crowd. maybe when youve accomplished something of note you can come back and say something intelligent. until then go back to blackistan

  • Gela

    “I will not complain about something when I can create a solution for me”.

    THAT’S IT!!!

  • Rhonda

    I don’t necessarily agree with you, but I want you to know that the comments below I definitely don’t agree with. Belittling someone else to make a point or opinion is immature. However, I cannot wait for the day we are all just Americans, like our children see it (at least mine do). We are Spanish Basque, but when asked we are Americans, we were born here. My ancestors were slaves, but I don’t hold anything against anyone. We need to come together and only see Americans, and we can celebrate each other’s cultures. I don’t know anyone who celebrates my culture here in America.

  • JP

    For what it’s worth, I am fascinated by Basque culture! I wish I knew more about it, but I do know that it’s a beautiful countryside and that from the outside looking in it seems like a way of life that celebrates just being alive a lot more than we do….from the outside looking in it would seem that the Basque people are no strangers to hard work – but that they also get that life is about much more than work – that family and spirituality and community are equally important. I hear the food isn’t bad either :)

  • Toolee Smith

    I’ve been a fan of yours ever since your comment on Fox News: “Obama doesn’t give a shit about terrorism.” That is so true, and I admire you for having the courage to say it. :-)

    This whole Academy Awards thing has got me a little twisted. Let me first start by saying I have plenty of friends that are of many different ethnicities. I have plenty of black friends as well. Some that I love like family members. However, to call the Academy racist is ridiculous!! If the show was that racist, why is Chris Rock hosting the whole damn thing. God knows they could have picked Billy Crystal or Steve Martin again. If they are so racist, why did they appoint Ch…eryl Boone Isaac (a black women) as the President. And didn’t Denzel Washington (one of my favorite actors by the way) just get a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Golden Globes. If a black actor is in a film and he or she does an outstanding job, then of course they should be recognized for their work. Regardless of color. Just like when Denzel Washington was recognized when he won the Award for his work in Training Day. I think we can all agree that he deserved it. But just because a black actor does not get nominated, does not mean it is racist. Did anyone stop to think that maybe the actor was not that great in the movie, and did not deserve a nomination. So, is the Academy supposed to automatically nominate an actor based on the color of his or her skin from now on? regardless of the performance? Really? Should white people have cried bloody murder when Cuba Gooding Jr won the Academy Award for saying “show me the money” over Ed Norton’s unreal performance in Primal Fear. I didn’t hear any uproar about that. Anyone who thinks that Cuba Gooding should have won the award does not know a thing about acting. The actress Stacy Dash (who happens to be half black) said something the other day which makes a lot of sense. The following is her statement. ” We have to make up our minds, either we want to have segregation or intergration. And if we don’t want segregation, then we need to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the NAACP Image Awards where you’re only Awarded if you are black. If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms. It is a double standard.”

  • Richard Dockery

    I agree!

  • Kir Eito

    The kids these days are being taught to place a black or white adjective on every noun. And by creating that polarity in thought then create a destructive soft marxist system that collectivizes whining to a degree that only the insane slippery slope progressive can appreciate. You can read social justice theory and easily see its strong roots in marxism. See the Nero twitter account for a take down. We could say hip-hop is the last bastion of maleness in the society. But not for long as young black men grow up in a liberal social justice society. Again I refer to @nero on twitter as making a strong case for Stacey’s points.

  • janie noviello

    Okay, let’s break it down: the demographics for Academy members that vote on the Oscars are 96% white, 77% male and the majority are over age 60. Does this seem diverse? Representative? Could there be a problem? The Academy itself is seeking to diversify it’s membership and has issued the following statement: “”The Academy is going to lead and not wait for the industry to catch up. These new measures regarding governance and voting will have an immediate impact and begin the process of significantly changing our membership composition.”
    Keep on keeping on, Stacey. You need that FOX paycheck now that Jet won’t be throwing any more covers your way.

  • uhh. yeah.

    just stop. you’re not part of ANY solution so your words are indefensible. whether or not you agree with BET or any of the protests stemming from the fed-up black demographic in this country, you spouting a critique of blackness, as a black woman, sets the table for bigotry from the FOX news and conservative pundits who aren’t invested in the advancement of underrepresented groups. i, for one, am not begging for a seat at the table b/c i do recognize that “the table” is OLD, SEXIST, WHITE and RACIST. but you know, if that’s what’s important…

    I must profess a secret crush on Dash, and that is based merely upon her beauty and talent. If I bring her mind and intelligent manner of articulation into the mix, I am about six words from proposing to her.

    By the looks of that turban, and the irrationality she’s been backing, she’ll probably automatically label you a “terrorist”.

    Well, at least you acknowledge your knack for willful ignorance. You two would be great together.

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Your attempt to suggest you are capable of offering context beyond “entertainment value” sets the benchmark for ignorance.

  • VampireUmpire

    Perhaps it’s your benchmark that needs fine tuning. I’m not the one who’s dumb enough to think I could pull a vapid trollop like Stacey Dash. Especially adorning the Conservative’s “Enemy” collection on my head.

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    The list of items in your dimly lit world that require fine tuning are legion although I would suggest you start with your spell checker and then slowly move to the lens through which you perceive what you believe to be reality.

    I don’t agree with everything we think as a hole either. I don’t like affirmative action because from experience if they don’t want to hire black people they certainly don’t want to hire a black they have to promote so they will hire the one they can get rid of. Martin Luther Day should be black freedom day celebrating all blacks historians such as Malcolm X and others. I believe I will keep my gun to protect myself. If drug dealers get their guns from the same place they got their drugs, who will still have guns if gun laws are past. Plus I notice black people only come together when a topic get label a black thing. If it just one un-important person no one will care, unless a important person get behind them. I see this at work also. If blacks get together and mis-treat a white he will get hired and promoted the minute whites notice this.

  • CheB Real

    Still Clueless. Your commentary is wrong on many levels, although I sympathize with your desire not to automatically follow old school liberal thinking in every respect. You mischaracterize and dismiss the #BlackLivesMatter movement on college campuses and dismiss as irrelevant efforts to end discriminatory policing which, at its most heinous, kills black people #SandraBland #MichaelBrown and too many more. Because of the focus brought to bear by the Black Lives Matter movement rampant policing for profit that riddles many small police departments and cities has been uncovered. See (http://www.nytimes.com/2015/11/15/opinion/sunday/policing-for-profit-in-st-louis-county.html?_r=0) The roguery that riddles America’s justice system while taking advantage of vulnerable people and targeting poor black communities needs addressing. Don’t conservatives care about that? If so, then join Black Lives Matter and help bring about change. You ignore these truths and show more ignorance about the irony in Toni Morrison’s commentary regarding Bill Clinton. Let me explain it to you: By pointing out that he met the tropes her very notion was that if we define being black by stereotypes he must be “black,” tongue in cheek. By the way, you seem to fall into the very trap you claim should be avoided–defining your “blackness” by the distressed circumstances of your growing up.

    But what started this all was your contribution on Fox to the discussion about the Academy and its all white awards this year. You said on FOX that BET and the NAACP Image Awards should not exist because “you’re only awarded if you are black. If it were the other way around we would be up in arms.” Exactly right; the Academy is only awarding if you are white and we ARE up in arms and protesting. Note that the Academy didn’t nominate ANY people of color, no Hispanics, Asians or of African descent. At least the NAACP, AIPAC (look it up) and others who award those who do work for their communities are honest– you know you have to be about the work their organization respects and recognizes; the Academy does not openly claim that they are only looking at performers and performances from a white Eurocentric perspective; in fact they claim otherwise.

    And the big picture (pun intended) issue that is getting lost in the diatribe is that Oscar and his Academy are only a symptom of the real problem: Hollywood. The entire American film industry and system is sitting on the laurels of its racist and sexist 20th century history. They need to change and understand that “other” perspectives are not only valuable but necessary if they are going to survive in the 21st century. They don’t see the value of Creed, or Concussion, or many other films, because they have blind eyes that still see only John Wayne, Clint Eastwood and yes I dare say Harrison Ford types as heroes. Protests will eventually bring the needed change, or the world will simply catch up and overtake the current system. You may be on the conservative right, bless your little heart, but “The” Academy is wrong.

  • Richard Graves

    I don’t think the issue is being conservative or liberal, I think it is the fact that you are wilfully ignoring the actuality that BET was created to play music by Black artists when MTV wouldn’t. Up until Prince and Michael Jackson, MTV did not play black videos, BET was a station that allow black artists to be seen and ultimately what made MTV play black artists.

  • FallenHeros

    We know why BET was created, yet they have not evolved. MTV did start playing black music. Does it play white music?

  • Richard Graves

    Actually, your question is rather silly, videos by Eminem, Justin Timberlake, Robin Thicke, etc etc have been played on b.e.t, so again Stacy’s statements don’t stand to any real scrutiny.

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    If BET were truly about genre they would relinquish their racist title and adopt something more genre suitable and socially inclusive.

  • Diavolos

    So now that whites include you in their doings do you still need BET awards or should we all go back to racial segregation and each to their own?

    It is funny how you craved to be included in white doings while you want to keep the black-only doings going on.

    You gotta choose, you want it all to blend or you want it to remain segregated?

  • Richard Graves

    I think you might want to follow along, since it has already been established that BET plays a few White artists in the genres of R&B, Hip Hop and Neosoul, the segregation you speak of is really nonexistent. It is about genres, as things have evolved. Which makes Ms. Dash’s statement all the more nonsensical.

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    That you intentionally miss the point only illustrates the one on top of your head. You preach willful segregation while pretending to embrace equality and it makes your tongue wag until your saliva forms a rabid froth.

  • Richard Graves

    Lolol, the fact that you are a lowest common denominator thinker unable to grasp the very simple reality that there are White artists who are on BET which undermines your intellectually fraudulent argument that BET practices segregation does not mean I don’t have a point, it betrays your lack of intellectually capability. You have chosen to run with a silly and disingenuous narrative to forward your White supremacist worldview, get over yourself.

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Social discourse would be less difficult for you if you were not so hopelessly imprisoned by such willful and indoctrinated ignorance.

  • Richard Graves

    Lololol, it is only difficult because I am interacting with you, someone of inferior intellect and lacking of basic reasoning ability. Good day, I have wasted far too many keystrokes on you.

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    In other words, you lack the ability to adequately articulate yourself and are forced to demonstrate this inadequacy by babbling nonsensically :-)

    The part that the rest of the numbskulls can’t seem to get through said skulls, is that BET isn’t even black-owned- hasn’t been for a long time.

    Not only that, it’s massively obvious that it’s not a black-exclusive channel in spite of the name. But of course they wouldn’t know that, because they don’t even watch it. They’re just repeating the same cycling the same baseless opinion.

  • Ivan B. Cohen

    Yeah….right Stacey, trade in Democratic slave drivers for Republican slave drivers. Just because Toni Morrison dubbed Bill Clinton as “the first black president” didn’t make him one. We won the Civil Rights movement? Says who?

    Okay, that was actually pretty awesome.

  • Negrodamus#1

    Baby Girl is str8 nuts, I mean, really, she has lost her mind. there is not ONE single reason that a black person under the age of 60, [because it was still the party of Lincoln back in the Day]should want to become a Republican. if there is, can someone help a brother out? oh, besides being bought off…

  • Diavolos

    So the question is why do you crave so much to be accepted by the whites? Is it because you want to take over and ruin them?

    I mean you have BET awards, whites invented oscars and it probably should remain for white people. How about that?

    How about you guys make your own country with black only people that wont’ rune into a ghetto or a third world shithole?

    You need the whites, you want the whites but you hate them for the two previous reasons.

    I wish the white people who found your people in the bushes 500 years ago, never took them to America and never had them as household slaves.

    You would all be in Africa, fighting starvation and AIDS and you would be living off from food sent by whites.

    Although the last one is still done in USA.

  • triumfant

    You’re a insignificant troll, and an asshole, Carl Hill.

  • Negrodamus#1

    Yup, maybe, and, you clowns would have died off because you were too lazy to do your own ish, have a good Day..

  • Diavolos

    We had our own “ish” and you tried desperately to be included, you were included but your low standards couldn’t land you a single fucking nomination!

    Also when my people found out about your species 500 years ago you were living in the bushes, while my people had enough technology to roam the earth (and thus find you).

    From all the homo sapiens you were the only lazy motherfuckers that couldn’t manage to get out of africa and go to more human friendly environment.

    And while the white man has gone to the moon the typical negro cannot learn proper english, the one and only language they ever know.

    Not shocked, your native languages consist a little more or less a couple of thousands of words.

    The world was a better place before we found you, now we have to take you into consideration and when your actors suck and you have no nominees… you complain about racism while you have BET awards because you need them to have some attention.

    Thus th sentences:

    You are good looking FOR A BLACK
    you are a good worker FOR A BLACK
    you are a good actor FOR A BLACK

    low standards!

WHITE AMERICA DOES NOT like you self righteous, ignorant English one bit…So, do not even attempt to align yourself with white Americans because you are rejected….. America as a whole is ready to party again with you like it’s 1776! You English have been nothing but a problem and detriment to just about every other group of people on this planet…

  • uhh. yeah.

    all humanity, i.e., the entire species of homo sapiens, began in Africa. so says science. furthermore, white skin is a mutation, which is why the sun…THE SUN (the bright spot in the sky that’s supposed to be there) damages white skin….EASILY.

    no hate for white people, but you’re too ignorant to allow.

  • MannyHo

    Lol. You’re so dumb. You’re one of those people who think that melanin make you special huh? LOL. “Whooooo! Look at me! I have melanin! I’m special!” Hahahaaa. Trust me. Nobody, anywhere in the world, is envious of you.

  • uhh. yeah.

    i’m fully aware that no one is envious of black people. this is america. but you have melanin too mr. white man, fyi. do you feel special?

    and calling me dumb for calling in science, i mean, that’s too predictable, man. bet i know who you’re voting for

  • MannyHo

    I’m not pro-melanin or anti-melanin. I don’t care. It’s completely irrelevant… is the point. Whatever level of melanin I have is fine. Whatever level of melanin you have is cool. The point I’m making is that when you try to throw shade at people regarding levels of melanin and certain people’s skin color being a “genetic mutation,” etc. etc., you’re just going to make yourself look like an idiot when in the company of intelligent people. No offense. Trying to imply (or just state) that somehow the SUN… favors black people (or that nature was intended to favor black people)… which is what you implied.. is just stupid.

    I get it…. the guy you were responding to was talking a lot of sh–. But when you let yourself spew irrelevant nonsense and try to make idiotic implications in response to people you think are spewing nonsense… you just degrade yourself and your own intelligence.

  • JP

    Only if you totally ignore science. It wasn’t a mutation, but an adaptation that made people who were moving further north biologically evolve to have lighter skin and people moving further south have darker skin. In the climates that had lots of hot long sunny days skin needed to be darker. And in the climates that had cooler and wetter weather, protection from the sun wasn’t needed as much. It says a lot about evolutionary reactions to climate but nothing about character, intelligence, etc.

  • VampireUmpire

    And this, ladies and gentlemen, is the racist vitriol that Stacey supports. Let that soak in.

  • MannyHo

    pretty sure you’re the one to came here to troll…. am I right?

  • FallenHeros

    Wow look at all the hypocritical blacks responding. We know why BET was created. As a white I agree with why it was as well. It was for recognition that was deserving. But that was a long time ago. Serious question here, what do blacks include whites into? It sure is not on BET. I used to watch it a long time ago because it was awesome. Then I realized what it was. It was blacks supporting only blacks and nothing more. It has never evolved to include others. It is a racist movement. It is the black community acknowledging only the black community and nothing more. I now see this stupid Oscar white trending thing so I did some math. In the last 20 years blacks took home 12% of the Oscars. Blacks make up 13% of the US Population. Now tell me you unfairly represented. How many whites win on BET? Exactly. You think I don’t know what racism is? I lived in Africa for 6 years and live in West Philly now.

  • Negrodamus#1

    Let me try to help you out with just one example. we live in a Country where European Americans can walk around, armed to to the teeth, while threatening the Government. meanwhile, in a open carry State, two black males, one only a child, were shot and killed, while carrying FAKE GUNS…now, how “American..” is that? #UnitedStatesofApartheid #WhereAreTheBlackMilitias

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Let me try to help you out with the one salient fact that is both foundation and crux of your willful ignorance: No matter your color, when you point anything that resembles a gun at a cop, you will be shot… period.

    Stop pretending to be a fifty cent thug and your life expectancy will double over night.

  • Jaele

    Let’s move toward REALITY in your stories here. See, fluffing up stories doesn’t do you any good. In fact, it makes you appear a liar, a manipulator of reality, or at very least ill-informed.

    The “white European Americans” were armed for their own safety and never one time “threatened the government” nor posed any threat to anyone. That was made very clear by the group and law enforcement made it very clear to the media and citizens that they did not feel threatened. Liberal media, which I’m going to assume that you subscribe to listening to, is the ONLY media that was reporting the protest as something much more dramatic than it was.

    On the other hand, the “black child” as you say, was not merely open carrying a toy gun (that appeared realistic and that he was not of legal age to carry); he was walking around pointing it at people and threatening them. He wanted these people to believe that his gun was real and that he was going to shoot and kill them. THAT is precisely why law enforcement was involved in the first place.

    Furthermore, there are plenty of groups of black American citizens AS WELL AS black militias that open carry in this country without a problem and “Black Panthers” would be the most notorious. New Black Liberation Militia would be another….etc… Unfortunately, those groups choose to segregate themselves from other American militia groups due to their racist and hate filled, violent public professions. That leaves those groups as useless to anyone as their KKK counterparts.

    Logical, intelligent black American patriot citizens who truly care about protecting the Constitution of this country and the Bill of Rights of citizens ARE MEMBERS of American Militias, alongside their “white European” countrymen. In FACT, there WERE black American militiamen involved in the protests that have taken place in both Nevada and Oregon. There are also many, many black Americans who are NRA members, alongside their “white European” counterparts. Why didn’t you know this?

    So, for you to make such ridiculous claims, serves only to make you appear very ill-educated.

    It’s very, very clear that the only support that black Americans with firearms seem to get in support of their right to bare arms comes overwhelmingly from white/European American Constitutional Patriots.

  • Maya Cruz Brown

    I am black and find it very odd that there is hardly any chatter in the black community about Dr. Ben Carson. Is it because he is currently running as a Republican? If so, than that the confirms for me that liberal democrats seem to have some type of “spell” over the black community.

    Change will never come if people choose to follow others blindly and choose to blindly hand over their votes (many died for us to have the right to vote) to individuals for no other reason than because they are of a certain ethnicity or represent a certain political party and for the black community the party of choice historically has been the democratic party.

    I truly believe for most black people being a democrat usurps being black! I say this because I hardly see any discussion regarding Dr. Ben Carson in the black community. I am convinced that if Obama had ran as anything other than a democrat, he would have not recieved the amount of support he did from the black community. Black people need to ask themselves if voting for democrats is good for the community, then why in the world are black people at the same time saying how unfair and racist this country still is towards black people? Isn’t it time that black people ask themselves if supporting democrats so overwhelmingly in gaining political positions is truly beneficial for the black community? The black community has overwhelmingly helped to secure the presidency for democrats for 16 of the last 24 years, yet at the same time still overwhelmingly say that things are not better or equal for the black community since desegregation.

    As a black person, I ask my fellow black citizens, isn’t it time we SIMPLY take the time to reflect and think on these things and then ask ourselves questions about these facts? What I appreciate about Stacey Dash is that she is also pushing for black peopIe to take time to reflect on certain facts and ask questions.

    I do not advocate for democrats nor republicans. However, I am advocating that we stop giving our support blindly AND stop NOT giving our support blindly(by this I mean choosing to not vote for a candidate simply because the candidate is not a democrat). I advocate that we STOP AND TAKE THE TIME TO ASK THOSE WE SUPPORT QUESTIONS. A very simply question I might add…One Janet Jackson asked in one of her hit songs…WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR ME LATELY?

  • Somebody_Else

    Maybe the Ben Carson thing has something to do with him being a total nutcase, not about whether he’s black, or republican.

  • Maya Cruz Brown

    What has he done that would cause you to label Dr. Carson who is a well respected neurosurgen a nutcase? This man is a Yale graduate, and until he retired in 2013 was the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at John Hopkins and you are labeling him a total nutcase?

  • triumfant

    Check out my YouTube Channel under Alycia Cooper, where I discuss why Carson is a nut.

  • Maya Cruz Brown

    Hi Alycia,

    I watched what you had to say and found everything you said in your video to be based on your personal opinions of Dr. Carson which seemed to spawn from comments Dr. Carson made that you didn’t agree with.

    I also want to add that you chose to show snippets of Dr. Carson’s statements without showing the full context in which he made the statement. Showing the full context in which the statements were made would allow better understanding of what he may or may not have been trying to convey.

    Lastly, I just want to say that even though I will confess that Dr. Carson is not the most charismatic person, I found it very mean of you to say he is not a good candidate simply because you personally find him to be boring. I, on the other hand would much rather prefer a so called “boring” candidate with integrity than an so called “exciting” candidate with no integrity.

  • triumfant

    Hello Maya,

    You’re correct, it’s absolutely based on my personal opinion. It wouldn’t make sense for me to speak for others. I put up several videos with at least 10 reasons why ideologically, he and I don’t mesh. Him being boring was a minuscule factor. The bottom line is, we live in America, and we have freedom of everything here, including choice and opinion. I respect yours, and I hope Dr. Carson is the Republican nominee, so that you’ll get a shot to pull the lever for him. That’s something I’d never do, and it’s fine. It’s the beauty of the American way.

  • whitebl09

    Because Ben Carson knows there is a race problem in the country yet he chose to ignore talking about it when asked about it because he didn’t want to offend the right. His taking up for Dash and saying there is a need still for BHM and BET are the only times I’ve ever even heard him acknowledge it at all. So either he doesn’t really have a platform of his own and he’s running on what he thinks will get him elected or he’s out of touch with many of the people he’d be serving if elected. Either way it’s hard to take him seriously. He built up a lot of cache with the right and probably could have done a better job at explaining some of these issues and actually bridged the gap if he cared to but he chose not to.

  • Justin Gray

    Well said Ms Dash. For those of you hell bent on posting your uneducated ignorance, how about a little history lesson… the civil rights movement of the 60’s were to end segregation and separatism. Before that time, your liberal, tolerance preaching democrats were the slave owners and klan members you so despise today. Much to their dismay, they lost the fight of segregation in the 60’s and, ironically enough, are now the ones leading the fight for segregation once again. The only problem is, those of you who are dependent enough on gov’t to continue swallowing the bullshit that they feed you with a pitchfork and dangle in front of you with a noose are too blind by your own hate filled racism to see that your masters are leading you right back to that burning cross while chanting black lives matter along side you.

She gets PAID CatholicANDChristian to express Fox News opinion and that should speak volumes…lol…such sheep! You and Stacy need to light that candle that your speaking of!!! To all the melanin people agreeing with Stacy y’all really need to wake up and learn your history! Stacy is Clueless and it seems to be no problem when every group in this country besides Black people segregate and separate but it’s a issue when Black people do it. You people are such hypocrites!

And then you said Roxene doesn’t know you and shouldn’t judge you just based on your comments, but that is EXACTLY what you’re judging Dash for – you don’t know her either. And you don’t get to ‘revoke’ her black card or devalue her identity as a black woman just because she doesn’t agree with you.

    She doesn’t know me for one. Stacy Dash has been putting herself out there for awhile and were there is great power comes great responsibility. How you can compare me to Stacy Dash is ridiculous.

  • commonsense

    Notice that she did not deny that Fox News pays her. There should be a law that forces a media outlet that calls itself News to post a caption underneath the name of every guest that states the guest is being paid for their appearance. Stacey Dash is a Political Prostitute.

  • intwtf

    you mean like MSNBC too?

  • CatholicANDChristian

    That would make Rachel Maddow a political protitute, and every other commentator one as well.

  • commonsense

    I stated clearly that “There should be a law that forces a media outlet that calls itself News…” That clearly would include MSNBC. The one thing that I can say, is if you Youtube search Rachel Maddow and the terms “Michigan” and “Flint” you will see that she was trying to warn the rest of the nation that Michigan Governor Rick Snyder and his Republican Controlled State Legislature wrote themselves a law THAT GAVE THE GOVERNOR THE RIGHT TO SUSPEND THE POWER OF OTHER ELECTED OFFICIALS IN THE STATE AND TO RULE BY DICTATORIAL DECREE. She not only warned about that precedent that violated the Constitution, but then down the line, she was the foremost national television figure raising awareness about the poisoned drinking water in Flint. By the way, Kudos to Fox News for bringing in Stacey Dizzy-A$$ Dash to help create a Red Herring for the Flint Water Poisoning Crisis.

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    There is something viscerally wrong with including the word “prostitute” with any phrase referring to someone who looks like Maddow… only a blind man would pay her for such services……… wait a minute…

  • Roxene Kimes

    The whole gammit of black paid talking heads are then ALL prostitutes. Sharpton, Jackson, leading the list. You believe what you prefer and the truth exposes your own innate bigotry.

  • commonsense

    Has Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton ever gone on television and made a broad stroking statement of any kind against the entire white race? More specifically, give me an example where Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson has labeled all whites as having the same ideology, stated that white people should get rid of teaching their version of history, and stated that white people should get rid of their institutions. I think you will find that they have suggested that white people consider changing or modifying their institutions (which are often presented as American Institutions and not White Institutions) to be more inclusive of the other races. My point is that if Stacey Dash stated that the BET Awards should honor more white people then she is being political. When she states that they should get rid of the awards, her broad stroking of the entire black race makes her Black A$$ a Political Prostitute. This is because she has stooped so low as to not only context an entire race but to context the race that she herself belongs to which is the ultimate expression of racism and self hatred rolled into one.

  • iamgrandmacarol

    Thank you for proving my point chump! BET Television and Black History month has absolutely nothing to do with Democrat, Republican, or Racism. In fact, they are a product of America’s legacy of racial discrimination. Yet, you are so brainwashed that your own prejudice made you call me a racist and assume that all black people are Democrats? Your use of the term “hang” and “tree”, combined with the fact that you have a fake profile picture of an Indian Sikh with a fake Western name is further proof that Stacey Dash appeals to the Sh!tHeads of the world.

    No, I think what she’s saying is that the Democrat vs. Republican vs. whatever thing IS the bullshit. I think she’s saying I’m black, I’m conservative, I’m here, deal with it. And some people can’t.

  • Jaele

    “With every special black interest group, we’re falling right into the plantation mentality they want us to have.”…….
    And by “they”, she is referring to black liberal Democrats and NOT “white people”…

  • Roxene Kimes

    Hear hear!

  • Kory

    And of course, the comments prove exactly her points above. Is it possible for people to read something, consider the words, and actually modify their staunch opinions anymore? I think what she is saying is spot on. My hope is she sticks to her views when the social pressure gets overwhelming. I like her. She makes sense.

  • Brett McMillon

    Personally, although I can understand her reasoning, it’s the message that’s off. Most blacks would love, in my opinion, to believe that as Americans, we are all treated fairly. Most would love to live in an America, where black children weren’t taught in school, that the only contribution that people that look like themselves made to this country was slavery. Most blacks would love to believe that a routine traffic stop cannot possibly lead to an execution, because they belong to the only race in America, where the actions of one, or a small minority, demands answers of us all. Most blacks would love to believe that the cycle of poverty, is not due to social engineering, within the very country where all are supposed to be equal. Most blacks would love to believe, they don’t receive 20% more prison time for the same offenses as white Americans. Although I can go on and on, in regard to how blacks and other people of color, have been and are treated unfairly in America, by identifying many systemic issues, we must all research for ourselves. The truth is out there. Just like Stacy Dash says, “reality gets a vote”, I agree. Remember that everything has a beginning, and those that want to know, have only to ask why. Seek the answers for yourself. Stop accepting that things simply are. Discover why things “are”, and form an opinion based on facts instead of emotion. This is just my opinion.

  • Roxene Kimes

    You believe a lie force fed by a PC driven racism that proves just how much opinion has replaced Truth..

  • Brett McMillon

    I am not believing lies. I’m going from actual data, and numbers. I have personally done several studies as well as independent research. Do the research as well, and let’s discuss the facts. Find the numbers. I have.

  • Brett McMillon

    Roxene, have you actually researched the truth or the numbers? Please stop assuming things without gathering the facts. The facts are easy to obtain. I believe nothing that can’t be proven, and that’s all areas of my life. I am a numbers geek, basically. I rarely make statements that are not supported by factual data. Research. It’s not all lies.

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Sadly, most blacks are trapped in a cycle of thug culture imagery which is imprinted upon them by liberal owned entertainment enterprises targeting their demographic. If those cultural cues can be transformed into something positive then we would have a demographic more represented by Dr. Ben Carson and other healthy role models. This would eventually lead to a lessening of the need to identify racially which would force those who thrive on “race pimping” and “race baiting” to get real jobs and earn an honest living.

  • Brett McMillon

    I hear you brother, loud and clear. At the same time, follow the money. Why is this going on? Who’s profiting off of the exploitation of the black community? What’s the objective? These, in my opinion, are the questions that we must all not only ask, but seek answers for. It’s easy to point out the obvious, but you’re going to have to dig to identify the unseen.

  • iamgrandmacarol

    In 1950 the history books I learned from taught the bravery of many Blacks who helped form our Nation.We learned how people can succeed thru bravery and hard work.I was taught to learn from mistakes of the past not to pass it to the future.You talk about the prison time being harsher,but as a family that has been wrongly put into that same system I can assure you the system does not favor any skin color, it favors winning at all cost no matter the color .So when people who have a common problem make the problem about the color of skin resentment ensues and progress becomes nearly impossible .Most of out BIG CITY courts have as many people of color and they are just as corrupt in there attitude to win not caring about the truth.

  • Brett McMillon

    There’s actually data that supports this, as well as everything else I stated. I personally am not going at these issues from an emotional prospective. I’m simply going according to issues that can be verified and proven.

    Bravo Stacey! It takes courage & conviction to stand on your (own) principles, especially when the winds of adversity are ever so close & howling loudly in your ear to sub-comb and “fall in line.” Like you, I have also had a problem with ALL the separation, even among woman vs. men. I know we each need to focus on issues directly relevant to each of us (men & women) from time to time; however, since we are the ONLY 2 species of humans on this planet, and without each other, we both will become extinct, why ALL of the intense advocating for separatism? Personally, I NEVER refer to myself as African-American or Afro-American, I am simply an American, who is black & female. The number of issues “at play” in this debate are daunting and excessive to the point of exhaustion. We should just BE who we are at our core – and that is NOT dictated by One’s gender or skin pigment. Just one sister’s personal insight(s) :)

  • commonsense

    It takes courage and conviction to stand on your own principles? Since when does that take courage? You mean it takes courage and conviction to prostitute yourself for a pay-check? There are no principles in 1st earning a living producing films that only appear on black media outlets and then becoming a paid mouthpiece for a political propaganda network that pipes racist messages covered in sugar to the masses. You need to take a step back and ask yourself how in the hell are you making any sense. This is because here it is Stacey Dash is in no way helping you to walk the earth as you are at your core. This is because her broad stroking comments makes you the focus of her disgust with the rest of your people regardless of how you actually think. Don’t think for one moment that because you think of yourself as a person who just be who she are and never refer to herself as Afri/Afro that it means you are going to be received equally by racist people outside of your race. A racist person doesn’t give a damn about how you think. So you should be challenging this dumb girl for being a mouthpiece for a racist propaganda network that is hiding behind the cloak of a media news outlet and for having the audacity to broad stroke the entire black race in context.

  • Benny Bryant

    Although you speak civilized and rational you are living in a world completely opposite of your core beliefs. Bravo Stacey??? She is clueless and contradicts herself every time she gets on TV. She is anti-separatism yet is sponsoring a Pro-Separatism Network and you are co-signing this! Black people are and have been living under the heels of White Supremacy

    since the beginning and this needs to be addressed. She is not helping the cause towards a True civilized world where all are recognized as Human and not separated by Hue, gender, religious preference etc! It appears you are seeing with your eyes wide shut!

    Cutressa despite the hatred you might get from some I LOVE your comments here. I have a lot of respect for Stacy Dash and her views on it. You even went further with the gender thing on top of the race thing. Thanks so much. It does seem as if people who think we are all just one group and should act accordingly are few and far between. So when I see somebody else expressing things the way I view them as well it gives me hope that at some point maybe….just maybe others will start to see what is actually being said. Sad that people think equality and inclusion equals racism when it is fact the exact opposite of that. Anyways thanks for your comments and just know you aren’t alone in your thoughts on this subject.

    Thank you Stacey for your bravery. You’re 100% right. I’m a 48 year old white man started dating interracial 29 years ago and never turned back. Married to a black woman and father of three. From 2012 to 2015 I owned a hair extension company with 6000 black female distributors, so I knew I couldn’t go public as a Reagan conservative. Now, on Facebook, I am no longer quite. Add an “insider” I believe black Americans are way more racist than the whites. My wife is from Kenya. Those black people are TOTALLY different from ours. They shake their heads at black Americans who blame everyone else for their failure. Still holding slavery over everyone’s heads….yet you can’t even imagine how many Africans wish their ancestors had caught that boat! So you’re black and don’t like people like Stacey that tell the truth you don’t want to hear (like Bill Cosby once did from love), and believe she’s a Fox News whore or something stupid (there are and have been many black men and women in Fox)…then do YOUR OWN RESEARCH. But you’re conditioned to believe that every “conservative” columnist or network is lying and only the Liberal media tells you the truth! It is sad. You hear radio personalities make fun of Republicans and are just brainwashed to not ever think of voting for them. Yet what has Obama done for black America??? Name one substantial thing? Nothing except literally double the amount of Americans (all races) on food stamps and welfare! Look at every city (Detroit) and every State that have been governed by democrats for decades, and how totally fucked up they are! Stop allowing your kids to tease other kids trying to get an education, a job, or learn to speak proper English. I’m a veteran and would love to see judges putting black men (and other races too) in the ARMY rather than prison! (Not the murderers…taking about small crimes) It may take a few months but trust me the military would make men out of these idiots you lovingly call thugs! I’ll close with this: millions of American blacks are secretly voting for Trump this time. He’s a little bit of everything, liberal and conservative, faithful but not a “evangelical”, but the ONLY candidate that can fix this country like a failing business! Let’s pray Stacey, that after 8 years of Trump, millions of black Americans will finally embrace being a Republican. One more thing….You know I have several Democrat friends who say they are conservative but because they’re not God fearing they refuse to view Republican! Only because Republican means Christian to them! HOW THEN BLACK PEOPLE WHO ARE 99% CHRISTIAN, DO YOU ALIGN WITH THE ATHEIST PARTY? NUFF SAID

    I have seen many clues. You coined the word Haters just for this reason. I never speak of white people I know based on how white their skin is, or texture of their hair. They’re just white!

Your liberal controlled education system, welfare system, housing system, media….and everything else negative that keeps black Americans down…is the real problem. And the ONLY whites in control of that are white Democrats! They’re the ones that kept slavery alive! Racism is learned. No human is born a racist.

In other words you have reached the end of my patience, with that, good day to you.

  • joel

    …. it’s not necessarily racism, it’s perceived racism. you don’t get a job you want, it’s racism. you didn’t get the table you wanted at a restaurant it’s because you’re black. The assumption that something didn’t go your way based solely on the color of your skin is just as racist as someone actually hating you for the color of your skin. I’m so tired of this white privilege/white supremacy talk. like @disqus_3VRy6GVYZl:disqus I’ve struggled as well, he seems to have accomplished more than I, but i digress. I went to a small high school and graduated with about 68 people, worked fast food for a while, joined the military and used that as a springboard for what I do now. I served with men and women of every background. white privilege indeed.

  • Richard Graves

    Yeah, I worked in fast food and you can save that “I served in the military narrative, “I served in the United States Marine Corps with honor, so please spare me the patriotic bullshit. The fact is this nation was founded on the principles of white supremacy and the institutions and systems within this nation were formed under that presupposition and this has been how it has been from the inception of the nation up until 1965 when it became illegal but not completely eliminated. So no every situation isn’t racism, but to deny the sociological foundation of white supremacy that still influences this country sociologically and culturally is not only disingenuous it is intellectually fraudulent. No one is saying that things have not changed for the better but please don’t insult my intelligence by trying to act like 450 years of treating people as subhuman went away over the last 45 years of that mentality NOT being legal.

  • joel

    The funny thing is slavery is/was rampant everywhere, yet the US is the most demonized for it, even though it was abolished, reinstated and abolished again. You, being a black man, can account for the the continuing ‘white supremacy’ which influences this nation how? You don’t seem down trodden or wanting for anything. You seem to do well for yourself, because you took a hold of your own life and destiny. There are many people who have gotten ahead in this life based on the fact that they were black vs the opposite. I understand that there is still racism. I’m not denying that. I’m simply stating that blaming ‘white privilege’ for every bad thing that happens to someone is ‘intellectually fraudulent’ My brother was a manager at a pizza joint on a college campus. three gentlemen came in inquiring as to prices to which my brother stated the menu. One of them inquired ‘you can’t hook me up, c’mon man, i’m black’ My family was heavily involved in the underground railroad and my brother simply stated that fact and it was time to rise above the stereotypes that black men are given less of a chance because of their color. He ultimately left the establishment. The point i’m making is entitlement for the most part is bullsh!t. I don’t expect anything because i’m not black, just like you shouldn’t because you are. I know i’m saying you, but my intention is to speak in general.

  • Richard Graves

    The funny thing is that slavery anywhere else really isn’t the discussion, we’re talking about the United States of America and its problems, so pointing at everyone else and saying what they did really is irrelevant. No one is sitting here blaming white privilege or white supremacy as the blame for every bad thing that happens, in fact you enlarged this conversation into something much more than what it really started as, the question was did MTV not allow black videos and the answer is yes, this is why BET was formed. A follow-up question is does b.e.t not allow white videos now and the answer is No. So any grander socialogical discussion about blaming whites for everything is basically irrelevent because no one’s doing that right here. But please do not insult my intelligence trying to run the fairytale narrative that everything’s all fair and equal or somehow things are now lopsided towards blacks that is simply is a lie. And the fact that you chose this conversation to vent your greater problem only betrays the reality of what I’ve been trying to tell you, hopefully you can take the time to think about what I’m saying and perhaps you’ll understand what it is, until then peace.

  • Leah Danes

    Your ignorance is appalling. You clearly show that you don’t know the definition of racism.

  • Derrick Alexander

    What racism? No one is born a racist, racism is taught. Who taught you? Do you truly believe banks care about the color of their account holders, or public companies care about the color of their stock holders? Who’s the racist? Because guys that look and act like Little Wayne can’t get a job at IBM does not make the IBM boss racist. They wouldn’t hire an uneducated Redneck either! Except for trailer trash whites and Rednecks (who aren’t hiring anyone anyway), white America has gotten over racism, segregation, etc. My intimate observation is blacks pulling each other down, not whites. Sorry if I offend you, but many black leaders echo what I say…but I can’t say it cause I’m white? Just like Stacey Dash isn’t allowed to say what she says because she’s black! I’m probably the most qualified white person to say these things. I love black people and I’m sad to see their struggles, but most are with each other. I experience tons of racism myself, but it’s not the white people that look with disdain at me and my black family….it’s black people. My white privilege doesn’t help me and my bad credit get loans for my business. I’ve struggled all my life….and I’m white! Corporate America isn’t holding black people back. It’s the justice system, welfare system, and planned parenthood that killed more black babies than were actually born last year. THAT’S THE ENEMY, NOT A FEW SCARED TRIGGER HAPPY COPS. Does racism exist, of coarse, but it’s definitely not the reason for black failure. That’s just an excuse and obstacle perceived to be impossible to overcome, so you give up. It’s sad madness.

  • joel

    WOW, I must be your grandma, this is what I have tried to teach my family.

So I cry for him and those of all ethnic backgrounds who really do want to be respected for our caractor and not our ethnic background.

  • Carl Poole III

    I believe you to be right, Ms. Dash: liberal blacks in America DON’T get to decide who’s ‘black’. We all, as Black Americans, can believe whatever we choose to believe. It is through understanding the spectrum of opinion within black America as a whole that I believe we can truly exercise social, economic and political power in this country.

    However, through the willful manipulation this same spectrum of opinion, the exercise of using that social, economic and political power in 2016 is being curtailed. The conservative agenda in America doesn’t need anymore surrogates; the liberal agenda in America doesn’t need more either. Black America as a whole needs them.

    We need surrogates from across the political spectrum to help us forward our progression as a whole in this country, using any and every viable resource and means we can. That’s means the NAACP, BET, the GOP, and any other group in the alphabet soup out there.

    I am eternally a fan of yours who admires your mind, heart and spirit. Never have a doubt about that. However, when it comes to the necessity for using any and every viable means to move our people forward, ask yourself this: Is all of this helping right now?

  • JP

    I think the two of you are closer together than you might think, and perhaps you just stated her point more artfully than she did.

  • Carl Poole III

    I only truly agree with Ms. Dash on two points here. I stated what those viewpoints were a the beginning on my original post.

  • Wave Bye

    lol@these comments. Look at some of these peoples pictures; you can see the despair on their faces. These are the same psychotic/bitter White people who contemplated suicide and day dreamed about race wars once Obama agreed to become a Puppet for the elite.

    This page is basically full of white people with inferiority complexes and Black people who bought first class tickets to ride the coon train. Both of which represent the minority of each group. Which makes them irrelevant when its all said and done.

    But yeah…..
    With all due respect…Stacey never had an impressive resume. Her being attractive is null and void, mainly because she on the wrong side of 40.

    Theres no need to dissect what she said.Stacey is hustling. Simple as that!! Whereas her hustle is pathetic…bottom line is she’s still hustling. When she gets her “Bill Cosby” wake up call…you wont hear form her. Remember when OLD Cosby went on his sh*t on Black folks tour, then White folks turned on him? Well that happens a lot…and its going to happen to Stacey as well. I just hope she stacks enough money to sustain herself once her fake friends get tired of her presence; or when she’s replaced by a younger Stepin Fetchit, with less mileage.

    The only thing sadder than her pathetic/degrading hustle is all the White people who think they found a “Blackie” whos on their side.

    I stated facts. What I typed only offended the feeble minded people that it applied to.

    Stacey is spewing bs on Fox News (aka the idiot network) because all the other lanes in her career have closed. Dissecting what she said is pointless. Like I stated earlier, Stacey is hustling, yet folks are taking her serious. Theres no sense in conversing about these type of topics with someone like her…..or her fanbase. Mainly because most of these people are middle aged people who are stuck in there ways.

    Btw….go study the meaning of systematic racism, and who CAN and CANT utalize it, then get back to me.

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    My, my, my… a quick poke with the pointy stick of truth gets you frothing faster than a cappuccino maker. I take it your case of racism is quite painful :-)

  • whitebl09

    To be honest, I can understand Stacey’s point of view with the points given. However, I do think it’s misguided. For instance, the whole liberals in Hollywood and Universities comment. You don’t think a person can be liberal (because they want to live by their own rules) and racist at the same time, which Hollywood appears to be? I do agree about the political leaders in major cities and we have to do a better job of researching who we’re putting in office. Unfortunately, because the system is so screwed, we are typically picking between Crook A and Crook B.

    Also with #BlackLivesMatter and why this organization can help. A big issue in urban communities is Blacks don’t trust the police, particularly when it comes to relying on them for protection.I think that’s a fair statement to make on both sides regardless of who you personally feel is at fault. If you can put in policy to where you don’t have people uneasy or fearing for their safety when it comes to working with police, then you build a stronger unity between the police depts and their constituents. With a better relationship, they could do their jobs more effectively. People would see this if it wasn’t for the deflectors like Fox News who are fine with the status quo.

  • Cynewulf

    When she says “liberal,” she means leftist. Leftists have pushed the “multicultural’ movement as well as political correctness in our universities.
    It is the same in Hollywood. Dash is exactly right: the very people calling everyone else to task for their alleged “racism” are the same people in charge of Hollywood, our universities, and many urban areas. Her point that the people whom Blacks champion and vote for, at the end of the day, have done nothing for them;
    kkkkkkkkkkk,mk,kmkmkjnjnjnnnindeed, they have made- things worse. n

  • whitebl09

    I agree with some of your comment but then I don’t with most. Her university comments makes no sense. BlackLivesMatter didn’t spring up over college issues, it sprung up mostly in response to police relations so I don’t even get that point. And again, I think people in Hollywood claim to be liberal (or leftist) when it benefits “their lifestyle”. However, Black people mostly vote left because the left seems more concerned with the struggles of the poor and minorities…”their livelihood.” The real problem today is no one on either side is running on issues, they are running on rhetoric. Case in point, Mitt Romney could have made for a good president if he ran on the things he stood for before he decided to stick to the party line. So essentially, even if the left isn’t fixing the problems, at least they are acknowledging the problem, unlike the right who won’t even do that so I might as well vote left and hope someone addresses it at some point

  • Cynewulf

    Sorry, my keyboard went haywire and decided to post my comment before I was ready. As far as the universities go, I think she is referencing the various incidences at Yale and University of Missouri, etc. where people who identified themselves as part of the blacklivesmatter movement were protesting things that were not related to police relations. Her point still being that you have who you want in charge, and they haven’t made things better for you.

    You’re correct, the Left seems more concerned with the struggles of the poor and minorities. The key word is “seems.” All talk and no game. Whether by choice or by happenstance, they never seem to be able to deliver even when they are in the overwhelming majority.

    The Right, on the other hand, couldn’t message their way to anything if you gave them a spotlight and a microphone. Part of that is because the Left offers a smooth, easy path to take where the destination always seems to be just over the next hill whereas the Right doesn’t have that path to offer. It doesn’t really exist. The Right offers a hard, rocky, uphill path, and the destination, as often as not, is way in the distance. You may or may not benefit directly, but your kids and their kids will. In this day and age of “me, me, me, I want it right now,” that’s a hard path to sell with the best of salesmen, and the Right doesn’t have many, if any, good salesmen.

  • JP

    This is pretty close to the truth with the left and the right – good way to explain that, I may borrow it sometime.

    I don’t agree with what she says one bit. Why single out Black History month when we have National Italian American Heritage Month, National Native American Heritage Month, National Hispanic Heritage Month, Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month, and National Women’s History Month along with several others? Why single out BET when we have hundreds of ethnic based tv networks throughout the United States? Why isn’t she calling out for removing all ethnic based tv programming and heritage celebrations? She purposely singling out Black tv programming and Black heritage. Why is this? How is she having courage when she is getting paid to say stuff on a station known for saying similar things?

    What does her being Black have to do with her comments?

  • logicalphule

    Well, if she was white and said those things she would be a racist, instead, to some of those that disagree with her, she is an Uncle Tom. In the liberal progressive mind, it is important to make that distinction.

  • http://www.thecobraslair.com Cobra

    Actually, she’s more like a Sambo, because when the cruel White slavemaster, Simon Legree wanted Uncle Tom whipped to death, he didn’t get his own hands bloody. He had his henchman, the Black overseer Sambo do the dirty work and he did so without hesitation, or remorse.

  • Lawrence Tyler

    You deflect with nonsense about being white or black, progressive or conservative, but fail to answer any of the questions I presented.

  • logicalphule

    I didn’t fail to answer the question, I flat out refused to acknowledge the questions. The questions you pose come from a logical fallacy of assumptions.

    You assume that Stacey Dash is being paid to say specific things. While it is true she is being paid by Fox to speak, she has stated herself that she is not being paid to say something specific. Unless of course you have proof to the contrary.

    If I may, draw your attention to the third block of text, or seventh sentence. This is where she states that she is not being paid to say what she has said.

    Why should I even attempt to answer your questions that are based off of assumptions that are simply untrue?

  • Lawrence Tyler

    What assumptions? I clearly asked why was she singling out BET and Black History Month when there are other tv networks and other ethnic heritage months. is this so difficult to answer? Or is it because you refuse to answer because you have none? If she worked for BET in the same capacity, or if Fox News were Black owned, I seriously doubt she would make the same comments.

    What are you talking about?

  • logicalphule

    This was the last line of your original post, “How is she having courage when she is getting paid to say stuff on a station known for saying similar things?”

    That is your assumption. She has refuted that assumption in the above seventh sentence.

    You’re also using hyperbole, another logical fallacy, when you say there are “hundreds of ethnic based tv networks throughout the United States”. I dare say there are not. If you can prove me wrong, I will happily withdraw this objection.

    Your questions ask the reader to put themselves in the mind of Stacey Dash and answer the question, ‘why’?

    We simply cannot do this. We can of course postulate, and lean on conjecture, but we cannot know for sure why Stacey Dash is saying one thing, but not another.

    So since, you claim to be a man of truth, and we cannot ascertain the truth, then your questions are rendered moot, as no answer we can provide can be the truth.

  • Lawrence Tyler

    Nonsense. I admit the comment about her being paid is somewhat based on assumption. But not totally. Don’t play dumb games. If the woman worked for a primarily black owned station she most likely would’ve never made these comments. I’m not wasting my time counting the number of words or sentences in posts. You’re still defecting from the 2 questions I asked. All from you is BS about unrelated nonsense and attempts to spin from answering them. Answering questions about the reasons for her positions is hardly conjecture

  • logicalphule

    I’m honestly not deflecting. I do not know why she is saying one thing and not another. To know this, you would have to ask Stacey Dash.

  • Lawrence Tyler

    You made plenty of assumptions yourself. “uncle tom, liberal progressive” On another wiki page there were too many ethnic networks to count. Well over 36. Hundreds still may be pushing it. But the notion of singling out BET and Black History Month is my only gripe with Ms Dash

  • Cynewulf

    I suspect that the reason why she singled out BET and Black History Month is because no other ethnicity is complaining about insufficient representation at the Oscars. I presume that if you were to ask Ms. Dash about these other entities, she would say the same thing about them. They just didn’t happen to be in the news to prompt a response from her.

    As a side note, no other ethnicity has its own History Month in the public schools. At least there are none that are widely known and that have an actual impact on curriculum. Many cultures have their own heritage month where they celebrate their culture among themselves and whoever wants to join in.

    If Ms. Dash did include all of the other ethnic networks, etc., would you agree with her?

  • joel

    If there was a station called White Entertainment Television, or a White History Month, a United White College Fund, would you call those racist? I don’t think you can cherry pick on this one. I know it’s idealistic, but hopefully someday we can get to the point where it’s not white people and black people and just agree they’re all people and drop the adjective.

  • joel

    The question arises…. “Would she work for primarily black owned station?” Everyone has choices to make, and you feel that your opinion of what you see going on around you is based primarily on who signs your paycheck, you may also be part of the problem. I don’t see why everyone is so bent out of shape over a woman stating her opinion or explaining the basis behind it. She has the guts to stand up and state that opinion publicly, and I believe there is something to admire in that. You may not agree, but there’s no reason to belittle or condemn her for her thoughts, just because you see things differently.

  • logicalphule

    While one can barely trust the source, and I do not claim that this is an all inclusive list, Wikipedia has a list of ethnic networks.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_cable_and_satellite_television_networks#Ethnic

    It is hardly in the “hundreds”. It is merely 36. Of course the definition of “Ethnic” could be broadened, and possibly you might hit 100 networks, but that is still not “hundreds”.

  • logicalphule

    And who is dying because Stacey Dash, a C list celebrity at best, does not by into the Black Caucus party line?

  • Lawrence Tyler

    Dude. I don’t know or could count the number of times I’ve heard or read the same things Ms Dash has said coming from white folks. “Why you people need BET or Black History Month”? When did I claim she’s an Uncle Tom? You’re making up stuff. I don’t give a rats butt about liberal, progressive, or conservative. I’m for truth which is something you’re obviously against with the claims you made

  • logicalphule

    Remember, I didn’t say that you said she was an Uncle Tom, nor did I claim that anyone specific did. Just that it was the mindset of the typical liberal progressive.

    I made no false statements, so your claim that I am against the truth has no merit.

    If you truly stood for truth, you would admit that the Oscar committee not nominating a black person has nothing to do with racism. Unless you know the hearts and minds of the people on the committee, and can therefore say that they didn’t nominate someone because they were not white.

  • Lawrence Tyler

    I don’t give a rats butt about the oscars either. Haven’t for over 25 years. You made the claim that, “those that disagree with her, she is an Uncle Tom.” Your own words.

  • logicalphule

    Nice edit. Allow me to make one of my own.

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    You make a good point, racial and ethnic segregation is not limited to one demographic but is used by many pimp and hustler types to divide the country and prevent a unified citizenry from rising up and disposing of the garbage in political centers of power across the nation.

  • James Daniels

    Accommodationist, Lawn Jockey, Token, and Buffoonery are just a few of the words that describe Stacy Dash comments. She not only denied the struggle that many have died for; she and others like her are setting us back with this plantation mentality. You see, as I grow older and remember people like a Stacy Dash, who was not afforded or allowed full participation in Hollywood or the media, accept, you guess it; the Black Community. Her comments are truly disappointing and ignorant. From a historical perspective for those of you who are trying to use in Civil Rights as an example, not one person who died and fought in that movement died for us to return back to such a mentality.

    While many have died and fought for us to do what we are doing now debating, they also died to raise awareness to dangers of these type of individuals that do more harm to our community than what we can imagine. Thus, the questions must be asked, Why do African-Americans or Black (whatever you prefer) disconnect ourselves from the struggle? It appears the higher we elevate our consciousness changes or decreases to the rationalization, “that ain’t got
    nothing to do with me.” Why would any person of color disrespect our
    heritage and advocate for the dismantling of Black History Month? Why would any person of color advocate the dismantling of BET, when the representation of the assortment of colors that represent us was not allowed on the major networks? Where are all the other African-Americans that have position and power? I know where they are, they are protecting it? Those you who have “made it,” have an obligation, that’s right an obligation to speak on such matters such as this because your audience is larger and it provides an example of connectedness for those of us who buy and support whatever your endeavors.

    How do many of us as parents explain to your children that a black person appeared on a network that constantly ignites the flames of bigotry? Denounces a network and 28 or 29 days of conscious tribute to our culture. What will she say next there should not be a Martin Luther King Holiday? Black Intellectualism must resurrect itself and become a part our daily dialogue. We must begin to understand the dangers of forgetting where we come from; please there is absolutely nothing wrong with movin on up!! However, when you transform yourself to the consciousness I am not like them; that hurts all of us because the narrative becomes more about you and your ignorance than the ongoing struggle for change within our community.

  • logicalphule

    The problem is, is that a lot of people in the black community have forgotten what real racism is. For some people in the black community, if something isn’t fair, they cry, “Racism”.

    Real racism was people dying outside of hospitals because the “colored entrance” was on the other side of the building. Real racism is firefighters letting a house burn down because they didn’t want to go into a black man’s house. Real racism was our nation’s military saying a colored man was too stupid to learn to pilot a plane. Those are just rated “G” examples of racism. In its core, racism is beyond the most ugly thing ever.

    The “controversy” over the Oscars is nothing more than a bunch of self-entitled cry-babies who are upset over nothing. If they are really that great of an actor or actress, not getting an Oscar wont hurt their carrier. It isn’t racist, it is simply unlucky.

    If you want to go after a network that constantly ignites the flames of bigotry, why not go after MSNBC for the rhetoric of Al Sharpton? He is a man who, even after it was proven to be a lie, upheld the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” movement.

    That is a network, who instead of trying to help heal the wounds of a nation, strives daily to deepen them. Where everything is the “white man’s” fault.

    An organization that blasts a white cop for knocking down a 15 year old black girl who was in a massive brawl with another black girl. An organization that allows the lie of, ‘She is only 15, she doesn’t know any better.’ to be perpetuated. Yet they don’t bat an eye when it happens to a white kid.

    Mr. Daniels, there are examples of bigotry on both sides of the isle. Be careful that you do not blind yourself simply because the bigotry comes from someone whose skin tone resembles your own.

  • James Daniels

    Thanks for your response, you have to excuse my delayed response, outside shoveling snow…lol First and foremost I understand what real racism is because unfortunately as a child I had to live it; while you did an excellent job describing
    real racism, which was not the nature of my post, please let say this….

    You lost me with the Al Sharpton stuff, while he may be
    imperfect and flawed like we all are, he has dedicated his life to voicing his concern for the African-American community, right, wrong, or indifferent. Like so many before him that lost their lives for not being quiet, please let me remind you of a few things.

    Hiding behind freedom of speech has been a disservice and
    has been a major contributor to our heightened racial climate and the continued lack of respect for our President. Fox News at some point will be viewed as the most divisive news agency ever. I will never forget Glen Beck fascist like presentations that spoke to the very core of hatred for white Americans to feed upon. There is a daily dose of Ben Stein, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, Ted Nugent, Charles Krauthammer, Bill O’Reilly, Megyn Kelly, Laura Ingram, and Michelle Malkin.
    Now you add the Accommodationist, Lawn Jockey, Token, and Buffoonery folk like Stacy Dash to this cast of characters that hide behind the word patriotism or patriotic as an excuse to continually perpetuate the racial divide; and you wonder why we have problems.

    Please understand you cannot resurrect what’s not already
    there. When you have 46% of the people that support Trump that are non-degreed, those are Klanish like numbers, especially when you are sold divisive rhetoric and are led to believe as you stated it’s the “white man’s” fault. If you look at the membership of the Klan up to the 1970’s, it was composed of uneducated individuals that were hyped up by racial rhetoric towards other ethnic groups that happen not to be white. Did
    you know that some of the original Knight Riders where Police Officers that set fires and committed other unspeakable acts against people of color in their own neighborhood and you wonder why there is distrust; it’s called a history Finding a token such a Stacy Dash and others is not hard to do, that within itself has a historical narrative as well.

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    The thug narrative wealthy liberals write about the black community is why much of the black community is still a ghetto. Fewer Fitty Cents and more Dr. Ben Carsons and the paradigm will change as will the community.

  • Lawrence Tyler

    So according to Ms Dash we get rid of BET. A station where she has appeared herself. She would dump all those who work for BET and leave them without jobs. Many of which would not have had the same opportunities if not for BET.

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    If the employees are worth anything they can obtain new jobs… or are you not so comfortable with President Obama’s “recovery?”

  • Lawrence Tyler

    No… are you? Another ignorant bunch of bull from a complete jackass

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    One who characterizes the notion that talent can find employment as “an ignorant bunch of bull” is typically neither talented nor employed.

  • BobFromDistrict9

    Obama’s recovery has been marvelous, especially since republicans have blocked it every chance they got, since day one.

    And yes, on day one republicans could still block a lot by filibustering in the senate. So don’t give me the Democratic Congress BS. There has not been one single day since 1979 that the Democrats could enact a single bill without at least a minimum of Republican cooperation.

    So Obama was stymied by a Republican congress with leaders who said, from the beginning, their main job was to force Obama to fail.

    Yet he has had an average yearly job growth 9 times Bush’s. Clinton left Bush an unemployment rate at 5%, Bush left Obama an unemployment rate nearly 10%. Romney promised an unemployment rate of 6% by the end of this year, Obama had achieved that last year.

    So, no I’m not satisfied, but it’s one hell of a lot better than the Republicans would give us.

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Establishment Republicans are Democrats hiding behind the letter “R” and all you leftists are commies who prefer welfare to work.

    Knowing is half the battle :-)

  • Craig

    I think you are missing the larger point. I personally don’t have a problem with stations like BET….but more of a problem with things like NAACP awards, congressional black caucus (which excludes black conservatives) Black Miss America….etc. Those are the kind of things that continue dividing us.

  • BobFromDistrict9

    Does the congressional black caucus exclude black conservatives?

    The NAACP image awards, Miss Black America, and BET were started when there was little, and very often nothing, on TV or in the media in general for black people. Now things are changing.

    ——————————————————————————-
    Should NAACP Image Awards Only Go To African-Americans?

    http://www.npr.org/sections/codeswitch/2014/01/12/261467509/should-naacp-image-awards-only-go-to-african-americans

    As expected, the African-American-focused Black Entertainment
    Television earned the most TV nominations at 19,

    But nominations also included white performers, such as Justin Timberlake and Robin Thicke for Outstanding Male Artist, song and album.

    In the TV categories, stars of South-Asian heritage — such as Archie Panjabi from The Good Wife and Mindy Kaling from The Mindy Project — were nominated for acting awards, alongside Latina Modern Family star Sofia Vergara. And some shows or films which have no African-American cast members, such as ABC’s Modern Family or Dallas Buyers Club, are also nominated.
    ———————————————————————————

    Perhaps the NAACP Image Awards should ‘re-purpose’ to honor those who do more for racial harmony and inclusion, rather than black people who achieve. The end result would still favor black recipients, but…

    Remember, change tends to be slow.

    Those agencies that work to improve the lot of African Americans tend to be African American oriented.

    Yes, there are significant numbers of poor whites in inner cities and run down areas. So, anything that makes life better for inner city dwellers will have a more proportionate benefit for black people, but in sheer numbers, when you make things better for the poor white people benefit more.

    As to Miss Black America, I looked this up long ago, and I found a Miss Polish America, Miss Hungarian America, Miss Irish American, so maybe Miss Black America is just easier to say than MIss African American. Shorter to write anyway.

    Why don’t you work to unite us, and maybe do away with the Hungarian/Polish/Irish/Russian/Iranian/Lebanese/Syrian/anything else divisions.

    OTOH, as long as exclusions of Muslims and Syrians are demanded by SOME politicians, screw all the arguments about the rest.

  • Craig

    google what the CBC did to Rep. Gary Franks.
    Regarding all the different “miss america” awards…it should either be ONE or just eliminate the whole thing.
    I do work to unite people and promote critical thinking and refusing to be defined by stereotypes.
    What are you doing about that situation?
    Regarding Syrians, they have NO reason to come to this country…the overwhelming majority want to go back home to Syria, so bringing them here is completely foolish on the part of our government. Their needs would be better served by giving money to Jordan to help there.

  • BobFromDistrict9

    “google what the CBC did to Rep. Gary Franks”

    Make your own point.

    You’re entitled to your own opinion, but if you think you have the right to ban ethnic pride and heritage, you get rid of them all instead of condemning one.

    “I do work to unite people and promote critical thinking and refusing to be defined by stereotypes.”

    Wow, how meaningless can you get?

    I’m sure Syrians would rather be living peacefully in Syria, rather than even Jordan. However, that’s not a reasonable possibility right now, and not even close to the point.

    Why send back your checks at taco bell because when you was a cashier you didnt like everything on the menu?

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Well, that degree of honesty would require recompense to Taco Bell for all the stolen food items.

  • Shiela Scott

    and assuming it was stolen food versus checking with the manager at the time would be defermation of character. Should taco bell shut down because a 17 year old student worked 40 hours a week against state law? Or should the teen ager understand she was home school and privelidged enough to do both? Is everyone in the same category….taco supreme….shrimp taco supreme….quesidilla…..or burger king?

  • Amber Horton

    Okay, I do get where she is coming from with some of it. However, if black history is not taught in black history month, it will be greatly overlooked. For instance, it should be taught in schools along with the rest of history, but it is not. It never was. By her own logic, the public school system would need reform, however, we know that if we get rid of it all together, it will never be acknowledged.

    Also, when you look at what IS taught in schools, I believe it wouldn’t hurt to get rid of it. Black slaves have now been called immigrant workers and the civil rights era is now not being taught at all. What does this tell me? They will lie about it anyway, even down to the book companies that write and distribute the books.

You are awesome and I am glad to see you speaking out for the things in which you believe. You and yours are in my prayers…

  • Avi

    It is quite obvious, Mz. Dash, that you have no background in politics, and that you came to your political beliefs by “just looking around”. Unless a person understands the actual background information on any given topic, they cannot form an educated opinion. Limited information equals incorrect information, if it is all you chose to base your opinions on.
    You should actually use your brain to read and learn from many sources instead of indulging in attention given to attractive female conservatives for merely parroting conservative views.

    I love an intelligent and thinking woman. And I love you Stacy, you make it so easy…
    Now what I really HATE is people who comment ASSuming they understand or know the motivations of others.
    I REMEMBER A TIME when “light skin,” nigger in the woodpile, mulattos (like myself) were (and still are) denigrated by both blacks and whites. Yet that too is changing as both blacks and whites are learning and accepting that we are the best of both worlds for the most part.
    Yes there are those who represent the worst of us and of course the media tends to report only the worst, perpetuating stereotypes.

    The real fact is you are who and what you are and ONLY YOU can make the difference.

    If you want to grow up and DIE a HOOD RAT that is your choice. If you want to be a stereotypical nigger calling each other nigga well you can do that too. If you want to spend your afternoon play time shooting and killing each other just remember it was your choice. If you want to dance around with your underwear showing like a con willing to turn a trick for a smoke, do not expect that the rest of us will consider that perversion in any way acceptable.

    I was submitted for the Congressional Medal of Honor and was denied by Bill Clinton because “Not enough people of color have it.” Little did he know I was the rarest of minorities. I was a very light skinned mulatto. But it does go to prove Quotas are bad for ALL OF US.

  • Shiela Scott

    She is right. This march for freedom speech on we are one isnt seperating talent versus talents of others. We are us isnt a bald up fist its a civilized future. One of the best neighbors is one that understands she/he is your neighbor. The control of guns, money and ability to open up business in the areas marked poor, and the reasons to should all rely on purpose. The democrats force idealogical thoughts back into enslaved actions. My sista, thats my gul. Everytime they see someone walking down the streets but do you realzie the morals religion and beliefs of the one you subject to your judgements. Who are you, a talentless cheerleader to tell me how i should flip? Who are you a voiceless death person to tell me how i should sing or sound? My words are my actions and my decisions is my judgement. Blacks liberals told me how i should be a statistic because the county paid for their success. Be black with them then they can help me. If i am not black, than that crime didnt just happen. These are all democrats raise to accept the non reactions to protests and silence of truths. I believe people like rap because they listen to it. Not because its black because its a great message or a great beat. Catogorize the issue not the color #mlk She is right. I apologize for the hard life that grew into a beautiful future of success for her.

  • Leslie Dawn Espinoza

    To go on to state my own opnion as well…..Black history should be part of mainstream history as some have said. And as for BET there are Latino channels and Asian channels etc… I don’t think there nothing wrong with that. the great American melting pot idea failed (integration) we became, in America, a unique society with multiple nationalities all living together. It is difficult to get everyone to see themselves as the same when we are clearly different. However, I love stacey dashs points!!! The idea is to get people thinking and make some progress toward desegregation on the opposite end of the spectrum. This is important!!! If white people were to decide to have a club for all whites or white entertainment channels that didn’t include black people it would be considered racist – as it should! But black people are never ridiculed for having things like BET or other black national associations – these things aren’t racist?!?! – no! They are just as racist!! As for #OscarsSoWhite that is also horrible. There should have been more blacks Asians or any other race – other than white – nominated and won. The point of the Oscars is to highlight good acting and there are a lot of good actors/actresses that did not get the recognition they deserved. If I ever appeared on BET I would expect to be included in their awards as well. Stacy dashs point is that we all need to start thinking of blacks and whites as just americans and black peopole shouldn’t segerate themselves. I believe that it is still important for everyone to keep alive their heritage and cultural believes throughout the generations as well which makes her point a difficult one to take in. Good job standing up for something u believe in Stacy and hopefully this will be the beginning of a new positive movement for black people!!!

  • B. James

    Wrong. There are plenty of White people and all races on BET…which is owned by white people by the way. White people have won BET awards, NAACP Image awards, etc, etc…she is straight lying for Faux News benefit. Also, white people don’t have to have their own channels…THEY ALREADY DO. Hence the reason for other nationalities to create network/programs so they can see themselves as other than slave, nannies, butlers, criminals, etc, etc..Black History Month is necessary because White History Month is EVERY MONTH. Without it we would never know anything other than being slaves and Martin Luther King Jr. Also Ms. Dash owes her career to all these black entertainment vehicles. What, now that she got hers let’s do away with them? C’mon, you can’t be that blind.

  • baws

    what tv channels have absolutely 0 black people on any of the shows on it? if the single token white person on BET means its “diverse” and includes white people, then shouldnt that same concept apply to the other channels that you claim have no black people? i seriously doubt you can find any tv channel that has no black people ever on it. you may find some that only have a few token black people, kind of like how there are only a few token white people on BET, but if its okay and not racist for BET to do that then its okay for any other channel to do it

  • Leslie Dawn Espinoza

    Well first of all I didn’t claim to know anything about BET I don’t watch it and it’s great that it is an integrated channel. If anything I believe my comment was that I couldn’t say much about BET because there are several other cultures that use TV stations to capture their cultures such as Latino and Asian channels. Second of all no there aren’t any ALL white TV channels or ALL white history months. When history is taught in schools it includes many cultures because all of these cultures are what made America what it is today – such as native American culture and Mexican American cultures. I know because I’m earning my credential right now and know what I’m being taught to teach our nation’s children. And my main point was if we had an all white TV station it would be considered racist. I suppose it could be equated to some all white shows and TV but we couldn’t say hey this is white entertainment only or we would be considered racists. I also remember staking that I understand the point stacey is trying to make not that I agreed with everything she stated because most cultures need to find ways to keep their cultures/heritages alive it is a difficult concept to discuss. Read my whole post before you respond to me – thank you 😉

Seeing how the blacks are only 13% of the population and we have a few black colleges maybe 2 black TV stations and the majority of people who In jail are black males her comments are blasphemy. Look at the public school systems compare to private school systems and suburban school systems, isn’t that segregation? Look at the neighborhoods in which minority lives compared to where whites live isn’t that segregation? We can’t say that it is not by design and yes accepts responsibility for our actions regardless of what are color of skin is but that’s not act like racism in color dominance doesn’t play a factor in our country. I believe in humanity but are media outlets promote racism and segregation on a daily basis. It’s to keep us separate so we don’t get together and look at the 1% who are running country and hold their feet to the fire. The fact that we are even having this conversation in this day and age should show you something people

  • Leslie Dawn Espinoza

    Just so we r clear on the facts the African American population in the US is closer to 12% and white people are around 60%. America is 1/2 white and the other 1/2 is made up of different minority groups.

  • Harvey Ross

    Ok and…..?

  • n8v

    I agree. Ms. Dash mentioned 3 institutions but left out Wall street, the criminal justice system and the mass incarceration of blacks, currently the New Jim Crow. It is obvious that she is very simple minded condensing her argument into conservative vs. Liberal platitudes, yet you cannot address the state of black America without taking into consideration some of the things I mentioned and she didn’t even say a word about those things.

  • Craig

    Maybe because the question was related to the Oscars? I would be interested in hearing her opinion on the things you mentioned as well.

    Ms. Dash writes about the poor conditions of black Americans under liberals. But she has divided people under a false narrative – one based on politics – liberal vs. conservative. This is what people in power – mostly white and conservative like her bosses at Fox — have spent decades putting into action so they could brainwash Americans into ignoring the real problem in America – oligarchy and class warfare. Ms. Dash’s argument feeds this narrative that it is liberal policies that have caused black Americans’ problems. In fact, the cause is economic policies that favor the 1% whether those one percent are liberal or conservative (think Sheldon Adelson, The Koch brothers, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg). Ms. Dash needs to do her research, study American history, and stop getting her information from the ignorant and uninformed.

  • BobFromDistrict9

    Love is a very good name for you. That is what you stand for.

    You are right on all points. As a white man in a very racially mixed family I see it all the time. I have long argued that the battle today is what it has always been, those on top dividing those beneath them to keep them at each other’s throats instead of joining to improve the lot of all.

    Yes, even Bill Gates, the supposed liberal who is noted for his charity, yet it’s all in the name of Gates. It’s all what Gates wants.

    Look around the world. In the Middle East it is Sunni against Shiite spreading throughout Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    In Thailand it is Buddhist vs Muslims, and in other parts of South East Asia. In India it’s Hindu vs Muslim vs pretty much anyone else. In South Vietnam it was Christian vs Buddhist before the North took over.

    In Northern Ireland it is Protestants vs Catholics, though it has tempered off a lot. It’s also that way in England proper, or improper maybe, just under more control. I have read articles of visitors in Ireland during the “troubles” who were told things by Protestants against Catholics that I hear said in this country against black people. The very same accusations just a change of targets.

    It’s the oldest rule of the rulers, divide and conquer. When Jesse Helms was losing an election to black candidate Harvey Gantt he ran a commercial showing white hands crumpling a rejection notice, while the voice over said, “You were the best candidate but they had to hire a black applicant…”.

    It never occurred to the white readers that they should be asking why there aren’t enough jobs for all of us, instead of seeing the other guy as the enemy.

  • F.Sankoh

    You don’t drive a lot of people crazy with your comments. Pretty much people laugh at your comments, Ill thought out and shallow as they are. Fox doesn’t always like what you say?!?!?!? Really?!?!?!? They didn’t like when you said Obama doesn’t give a shit about terrorism? Of course they didn’t like you saying “shit” on the air but disagree with your sentiment? Please!!!

    Some folks ask why you’re saying what you’re saying now. Does it have anything to do with the book you just wrote? Trying to drum up some publicity perhaps? Pretty much when your own family calls you a coon that pretty much is a wrap.

    Truth be told, I’m STILL waiting for you to respond to Roland Martin after he called you out. Then again, hopefully you’re not that crazy. Roland Martin would absolutely destroy you.

  • Craig

    She was removed from Fox after that comment. She is getting blasted by Democrats for speaking her mind…..hypocrites are easy to find, just look in the mirror.

  • F.Sankoh

    Wow Craig!!! Such witty and deeply insightful thoughts and commentary. Since you said it, let me ask you. How EXACTLY am I a hypocrite?

    BTW, she’s getting blasted by people who have common sense. There are a lot of Black conservative women who, while I may disagree with them politically, at least have the intelligence and depth of thought to make their point and be taken seriously. Mia Love and “Conservative Black Chick” are two that come immediately to mind. They never had to show their ass, like Stacey, to get attention to state their views.

    She is an intellectual light weight and it clearly shows.

  • Craig

    She is getting blasted for having an opinion that goes contrary to the “black party line”. No black is allowed off the plantation without paying the price. Just look at what liberals do to anyone that is a black conservative.
    You can google Rep.Gary Franks and see what the CBC did to him.

  • B. James

    I’d give more weight to anything you say if you said it BEFORE you took advantage of all the separative black stuff..BET, KING Magazine, Mo’ Money, JET Magazine…GMAFB.

  • Belle57

    Is Stacey’s truth a spiritual or material perspective? JS

    Only speaking the simple TRUTH will set all humanity free from the veils of unconscious illusions.
    Spiritual growth is the only thing that will save humanity from unconscious existence. Some are further along in their spiritual growth than others. And, it is always good when false truths are uncovered. False truths (ideologies opposite of real truth) must be recognized, confronted and placed into a perspective where they can no longer serve dark and hidden agendas or ideologies. Every age (present moment) will remain the same until ALL see the truth from the inside~out (spiritual) and not the outside~in (material).

    Everything you need to know about Stacey Dash is in the first sentence of this post: “If you’ve been paying attention to social media lately, you may have seen that my name is trending.” She will say anything to call attention to herself, hence the constant stream of garbage that pours out of her mouth.

  • http://www.dewaynejackson.com Dewayne Jackson

    I believe good and bad ideas come from Democrats, Republicans, liberals, and conservatives. Stacey, what bothers me about you and some conservatives’ opinions is that they demonize the other party and people with perspectives that are different from yours. You act like you’re the only Americans on the continent. You seem to take the stance that every thing liberals believe is wrong and everything conservatives believe is right or that the government is some big bad entity that’s trying to take away our freedom. Many of you constantly disrespect our president and make sarcastic metaphors about being on a plantation. Obama is not the enemy, nor is BET or Black History Month. Your latest comments to get rid of BET is censorship, plain and simple. Censorship is bad for business and culture. Will you want to ban all R&B radio stations and soul food restaurants next? Censorship is un-American and you are supposedly an advocate of American values. Will you make up your mind? Do you want an America that is free and allows it’s media outlets to curate content for a specific community/audience, or do you want an America that censors diversity when it’s not aligned to conservative ideology.

  • Craig

    There is too much hatred and division in this country right now. Both sides of the aisle are to blame for the rhetoric that escalates things.
    I have honestly seen more censorship coming from the left as opposed to the right (at least in the last decade or so).
    People are wanting to charge those who disagree with climate change with RICO laws and FORCE them into silence. Universities are no longer bastions of free speech, just look at Missouri and others.
    If we are going to make any progress, we need to stop with the name calling and juvenile insults…and that means from the President on down….

  • Crash Override

    I ask a simple question to you. If the situation was reversed and we were talking about White History Month or White Entertainment TV would you still be calling it censorship? Would you advocate the continuation of something which openly caters to a single color? Or would you condemn it. I’m not bothered if you answer in here, nor am I advocating the creation of any of the above, but if you cannot reverse the situation and provide the same support to that inverse situation, then it is not a matter of supporting diverse media. Nor is the comparison of R&B music stations and soul food restaurants to BET and BHM because to my knowledge, the music stations and restaurants do not selectively exclude those wishing to partake. The provision of something to people of one color but not another is racism, the ability for people of color to refer to themselves and to each other by a term which is not acceptable from anyone of other ethnicities is racism, the deliberate segregation in media is racism. The Oscars not finding any person of color to nominate for an Oscar is not racism, it is simply not finding anyone within that category who has performed in such a way that an award is worth granting this year. It’s the same as looking at a Police Department and claiming they lack diversity so they must be racist. If people of color do not apply to become Police Officers in that area, then there are going to be fewer Police Officers of color in that area. Not everything is conspiratorial.

  • http://www.dewaynejackson.com Dewayne Jackson

    I can see how “Black Entertainment” might bother you like “White Entertainment” might bother me but we have a long and continued habit to label things by race. A movie with majority black cast is often called a Black movie, but a movie with majority white cast is not called a White movie. As long as “White Entertainment” TV is not racist or promoting White power ideology, I wouldn’t have a problem with it being on the air, but it’s introduction would definitely be controversial. In a comment I made on another of Stacey’s articles I make the point that having or going to an Italian restaurant wouldn’t be racist unless they prevented entrance because of race, nationality, or gender. Stacey seems to have a problem with an all Black curated TV network so I I made the analogy about the restaurants. As I said, just because an Italian restaurant only makes Italian cuisine (excluding all other ethnic and regional items- soul food, Chinese, etc), doesn’t make the owner racists. They’ve simply curated the menu for those who want an Italian dinner. Content curated for a specific audience is not being racist: it’s being practical with your business offering. This is why we also have different genres of music. You would probably agree that most people who listen to R&B are Black and Rock music are White. These station cater to a specific audience (those who like R&B ). They don’t try to play a lineup of all genres, they would go out of business (again some exclusion is taking place, but the exclusion is not racist). I didn’t really mention the Oscars in my post because voting is subjective and many people may not get into movies that do not represent their culture (not because they are racist, but because of their interests). When Jada Pinkett talks about boycotting the Oscars, she is not advocating for nominating an actor just because he/she is Black. She is frustrated that this is the second year where no nominees were Black. This makes her think something is wrong with the voting process and she wants to take a strong stance against it by not attending (I can relate but don’t totally agree with all of her opinions about the matter). Good point about the Police department, there probably aren’t as many Blacks applying as Whites.

  • ImmaKillit

    Well in that case we would have to reverse how everyone came in to this country.Meaning blacks would have to enslave whites and subject them to extremely sadistic rituals to get whites to not fight their imprisonment and then fight against a war that would free white people from bondage. Follow that up with not giving them reparations that would have help them establish a foundation for growth, subject them to years of unlawful persecution, form lynch mobs to hunt and kill them, draft them into wars to fight for a cause they havent been able to understand due to being considered not equal to blacks in a country they cant even use the same restroom in, Kill any all political leaders that speak out against their unfair treatment, etc etc . My point is you dont seem to understand the history of this country. If everyone showed at the same time and were afforded the same things then black people would never have to form their own anything in a society formed thru equality instead of one that was “separate but equal?”. Oh and black people despise police because far too often blacks are mistreated by those who are suppose to protect them.

  • baws

    getting rid of bet is censorship? kind of like shutting down all debate over an issue by claiming racism? or labeling speech that contradicts the liberal position as “hate speech”?

    no, censorship is what they are doing in germany with deleting posts on social media that are in any way critical of the uncontrolled influx of muslim refugees. censorship used to be the territory of conservatives seeking to censor anything perceived as anti-christian and liberals resisting it. but the tables have since turned and now liberals are the ones doing censoring with conservatives resisting it.

  • http://www.dewaynejackson.com Dewayne Jackson

    Stacey says we should not have BET. Let’s say that could happen. It would be censorship, so this is what I meant. Of course Stacey is free to share her opinion about it, so I’m not trying to silence her, but I am disagreeing with her.

  • Brett McMillon

    Why are so many people ignoring the facts? I implore every one that believes that America is equal, or that racism either does not exist, or that it is not a systemic issue, to go to the CDC, or several other sites, where you will find the actual numbers. I believe in numbers. Way to many are emotional about things that the actual numbers either support or do not. Someone please help me to understand, how it is possible to form an opinion on something that’s not backed up with facts. It’s simply illogical to form an opinion, on an opinion, without having proof to support an argument. Things either are, or they are not. Contrary to many statements that I have read, where’s the proof?

  • Craig

    What specific facts are you referring to?

  • Brett McMillon

    I’m talking about the fact that blacks receive 20% more jail time for the same offenses as whites. There are numbers that support this, and it’s even worded 20%. Redlining and segregation in home purchasing and rentals. Once again, facts supported by the actual numbers, that anyone can attain. Blacks are more likely to be stopped and or detained by the police. Once again, facts that can be verified. I can go on and on. We can’t eliminate the difference by ignoring the numbers. They are what they are, no matter who chooses to ignore what.

  • Craig

    Ok. So out of those examples what role does the black community have in changing those numbers?
    Are you claiming there is a planned discrimination here or just the statistics bear out higher numbers?
    In the statistics for more jail time, where these all 1st offenses? Was there correlation to previous criminal behavior? I am asking because I haven’t done the research personally and while there is a probability that there is some prejudice involved in these numbers does that count for all of it? I highly doubt that is the case. Without comparing apples to apples how can we get a true reading on what is really happening?

  • Brett McMillon

    I’m claiming nothing personally, but the studies conducted involved individuals with similar records for similar crimes.

  • Craig

    Ok gotcha. I would be curious if that was a regional phenomenon or if it was equally distributed across the country. I know there are areas of deep-seated racism still alive, I wonder if the correlation reflects that.

  • baws

    i do believe as far as cops go, blacks definitely get the short end of the stick. thats not true across the board though. they definitely have a leg up in the context of universities. but at the same time at least part of the blame lays with the black communities themselves which tend to be magnets for criminal activity. most years the pool of 41 million black americans are responsible for more murders than the pool of 200 million white americans. 8 out of every 10 gun deaths among whites are suicides, while for blacks 8 out of every 10 are homicides.

    with statistics like these and the reality that many black communities tend to be dangerous crime ridden areas, its not surprising there would be increased police presence there. its also not surprising that cops would be more likely to fear for their life (and shoot people) in these high-crime areas. im not saying that its okay or acceptable, but it is a reality of life

  • Brett McMillon

    Nationwide, the number of blacks that engage in criminal behavior mirrors nearly exactly the numbers of whites. It’s well within the margin of error. Don’t believe the hype, that blacks commit more crimes, because they do not. This has already been proven to be factual by many government agencies, and independent research analysis. The fact is, that black communities are militarized via the police, more than triple the rate of predominantly white areas. Blacks are more likely to be stopped and frisked, stopped while driving, while walking, basically while being black. The numbers support everything that I’m saying.
    Also, there has been a war against blacks, via the media, for as long as the media has existed in this country. Blacks are most always portraid in a negative light, in movies, the news, and print. Most whites, subconsciously fear blacks, even though some most, don’t know many personally. Some do, and still fear blacks. I’m not sure what you know or understand regarding how the subconscious mind works, but all the negative portrayal of blacks, definitely shapes the perception.

  • baws

    your correct, the total number of blacks that engage in criminal behavior (well specifically murder in this context) is about the same as the total number of whites that engage in criminal behavior/murder. and i definitely agree blacks are more likely to be harassed by police, some of it from racism but i think also some of it due to their drastically increased crime rates. you are ignoring the population differences. if 40 million blacks commit 2500 murders in a given year, and 200 million whites commit 2500 murders in a given year, that means blacks are orders of magnitude more likely to commit murder than whites because of the population difference. and that is what the statistics say, that there are about as many murders committed by blacks as there are by whites even though there are 6x as many whites as there are blacks. these numbers are from the FBI homicide statistics, published by the obama administrations’ DOJ

    blacks have no problem looking at numbers and factoring in the population differences and adjusting them to a per capita statistic, atleast when it comes to looking at the rates of imprisonment. theres more total white people in prison than there is black people, its only when you break it down to a per capita statistic that you truly see the problems. its the same with the black murder rate. but for dishonest and manipulative reasons most black liberals insist on ignoring the per capita black murder statistics, and would greatly prefer everyone just look at the total number statistics which show blacks committing the same number of murders as whites. you did it just now by claiming the black crime rate mirrors the white crime rate, which is only true if you ignore the population difference.

    furthermore, i suspect you knew all along that on a per capita basis the black crime rate is far higher than the white crime rate, and that is the specific reason you chose to word your statement as “the number of blacks that engage in criminal behavior etc…” rather than just saying blacks and whites commit crimes at the same rate. you knew it would be false if you said they commit crimes at the same rate as whites so you found another way to try to get that particular message across, by wording it in such a way that it could still be considered true while giving the impression that blacks and whites commit crimes at about the same rate. you deliberately choose not to factor in the huge population difference into the equation because you know if you were honest and did that then those statistics would unfortunately paint black americans in a bad light… its extremely dishonest and misleading, i would even go so far as to say its lieing with statistics. its only when your talking about imprisonment rates that they want to factor in population differences and look at statistics on a per capita basis. but if its about the black murder rate, they ignore per capita statistics at all costs

    i do agree cops are more likely to harass blacks though. but again i think that is atleast partly caused by the increased violent crime among black communities.

  • Brett McMillon
  • baws

    they do support what im saying. if you add up all the numbers for each race under the black category, youlle get about 2700 total murders committed by black offenders. if you do the same for whites, youlle get about 2700 total murders committed by white offenders. its just like you said, the number of black murders mirrors the number of white murders

    however there is a HUGE difference in the number of blacks in america compared to the number of whites, and if blacks commit the same amount of murders as whites the population difference is going to have a drastic affect on the per capita murder rate. you cant just ignore the population differences. if 41 million blacks kill as many people as 200 million whites, then per capita blacks are far more likely than whites to commit murder. im not sure whats so hard to understand about that.

  • baws

    they do. heres a condensed and simplified chart of that same FBI data you linked for 2013. youve already admitted the number of “black crimes” mirrors the number of white crimes. if the pool of 40 million blacks commits the same amount of violent crimes as the pool of 200 million whites, that means blacks are vastly more likely to commit a crime than whites. you have no problem factoring in the population differences and analyzing the resulting per capita data when it comes to black imprisonment rates, why do you refuse to do it for black murder rates? this chart shows violent crimes excluding murder. the reason it excludes murder is because the number of murders is minuscule to the number of “violent crimes” as this chart shows. again, as your interpreting the chart, remember that there are 40 million blacks in america and 200 million whites. that means there are 6x as many whites in america as blacks. you cannot just ignore that fact. http://www.amren.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/NCFS-Table.jpg
    youlle notice the chart shows that in attacks involving blacks and whites, whites were the offenders 10.4% of the time out of a total of 955,000 attacks on blacks, which translates to roughly 95,000 white-on-black violent crimes excluding murder. conversely, the pool of 41 million blacks were responsible for 13.7% of the 4million violent crimes against whites, which translates to 548,000 violent attacks on whites by blacks, in 2013.

    so in other words in 2013 41 million blacks were responsible for 548,000 attacks on whites while 200 million whites were responsible for 95,000 attacks on blacks. how can you possibly claim that the crime rates are the same when a minority race kills more people in a year than the majority race does?

  • baws

    TL;DR: if you actually read the numbers on that FBI data sheet, it does support what im saying. when you add the totals you will see blacks and whites both were responsible for about ~2500 murders each. but because there are so many more white people than black people in america, that means that on a per capita basis (like you use when looking at black prison statistics) with the population difference accounted for, blacks are far more likely to commit murder than whites. 27x more likely to be specific. their murder rate would only be equal if there were the same number of blacks in america as there is whites, but since theres 6x as many whites yet the murder rate is still the same means blacks are far more likely to commit murder

  • baws

    TL;DR – if 40 million people of one group are responsible for the same amount of murders as the 200 million people in another group, that means the group of 40 million on a per capita basis are farrrr more likely to commit murder. you cant pick and choose when you want to use per capita statistics, that would be dishonest. as far as the crime rate goes your ignoring the population difference. you seem to be acutely aware of the population differences when it pertains to the fact that blacks relative to their population are disproportionately imprisoned, or the fact that relative to their population the amount of blacks shot by cops is higher than for whites. you like to use per capita statistics there, but not for the black crime rate. why is it that you choose not to factor the population difference into the equation when discussing the black crime rate? could it be because if you were honest and did per capita statistics for that particular issue it would paint black americans in a bad light so you refuse to do it even if it means lieing?

    thats fine if you want to use per capita statistics. in fact i encourage it as it tends to give a more realistic picture. but you cant pick and choose, and only use per capita statistics when it supports your narrative while flat out ignoring per captia statistics when it contradicts your narrative. thats called lieing

  • Brett McMillon
  • baws

    right. that was the specific data chart i was referencing. if you look under the column for “black offenders” and add the numbers up for each race, you will come to a total of 2698 murders. so in 2013 among the pool of 41 million blacks there were 2698 people murdered by a black person. if you add up all the numbers for the white column you will get 2755 murders. so in 2013, the pool of 41 million blacks committed 2698 murders and the pool of 200 million whites commited 2755 murders.

    there are 6x as many white people as black people, but black people still managed to kill roughly the same number of people as the whites did. that means that per capita blacks are farrrr more likely to commit murder than whites, so therefore their violent crime rate would correspondingly by far higher than for white communities

  • Brett McMillon

    I’m definitely not one to lie, and I admit that I didn’t study the chart very closely, because of the time of day. But all in all, my point is that there’s obvious discrepancies, between the way that whites are treated and viewed in this country, when compared to those of blacks. My point is that we can’t consider integration, a successful endeavor, if we’re treated differently, than the majority.

  • Anderson Tate III

    Numbers don’t lie.

  • Lu Adeoye

    I couldn’t finish the article, cause I realized that you’re missing the point. Without a black history month you’d be forgotten. The children that you work so hard for wouldn’t know their history. I say that because America has a way of rewriting history my dear. If you can’t understand that then you’ll keep saying ignorant things that enrage others.
    You are entitled to your own opinion, but you’re also entitled to knowledge and in this case your opinion wasn’t grounded in concrete knowledge. Let it go, it’s not right. We celebrate white history every day. We live in America where we honor the land that was stolen. Like seriously?

  • Craig

    How exactly is white history celebrated every day? It would be virtually impossible to find any country founded on land that wasn’t taken/conquered from someone else…

  • Crash Override

    Here’s a radical idea. How about instead of calling it Black History, White history etc we simply call it History. The history of the world is entwined in every person’s culture, their background, we make history every time we do or say anything, the import of a majority of events may never make the history books but it exists nonetheless.

  • Craig

    Exactly, cover historical events and the people involved in them regardless of their skin color.

  • AssHole

    Heres an idea, teach your children black history year around

  • Craig

    Or just history in general….and maybe from multiple sources to get a better understanding.

  • Nina

    Not only our black children should be taught black history, but ALL children should be taught black history and the truth about our history when it comes to blacks, since we are ALL apart of American history. Why not be an advocate for that and you wouldn’t have to have a black history month.

  • ImmaKillit

    I agree with you on that but hey you would only come back and bark about “too much” black history and how we need to focus on ALL aspects of history.And If thats the case why are there no history books that tell of all the atrocities that came with slavery? Must be those darn liberals again. Im willing to bet both political parties had something to do but what do i know. BET lost credibility with me when they sold the company to a white guy and got rid of shows like Teen Summit which was positive and got show like 106 and park where they promote booty poppin at 430 in the afternoon to the young demographic.

  • Crash Override

    Because America took a while to move past the mistakes it made in it’s history. Those mistakes however are important to remember in all their forms because it’s through remembering them that we are reminded of their consequences and not to repeat them. Unfortunately it seems that the response to some of that is to invert and repeat them.

  • Richard Graves

    Invert and repeat? I’m sorry how many white people are living under reverse Jim Crow? How many have to fear of being lynched just because your skin color? I’m not quite sure what you mean by invert and repeat please elaborate?

  • Craig

    I grew up being bussed into a 90+% black school during integration in the south. I was harassed and beaten up on a regular basis because of my skin color, which happens to be white. Is that what you are talking about?

  • Richard Graves

    You getting your individual ass kicked, is not the same as relegating a whole group of people, based on their skin color alone, as third class citizens who received substandard educational facilities, sub-standard health care facilities, the threat of lynchings, etc. Etc. So yeah I feel bad for you that you get your ass kicked, just like Italian kids in Irish neighborhoods, or Jewish kids in polish neighborhoods, or black kids in white neighborhoods, but that is quite different than the systemic and institutional white supremacy as a sociological foundation upon which this country was formed under and operated under legally up until 1965 and culturally up until now.

  • Craig

    Sure it is. It happened solely because of my skin color. But see, I don’t go blaming ALL black people for the ones who ganged up on me in school. I wouldnt even complain with a fair fight one on one…but when you are attacked by groups of people just because they can, it is no different.
    Now, did you personally experience the things you are talking about?
    You can’t diminish what happened to me personally because your ancestors were mistreated…so were mine. Irish slaves were treated very poorly, and since they were worth 1/4 what an african slave was, they were beaten to death on many occasions.
    Every race and every nationality has been enslaved or abused at some point in history….EVERY ONE.
    The real question is what do we do about that today? Do we live in the past or try to make a better tomorrow.

    the irish have had their history whitewashed. atleast blacks get acknowledgement for what they were put through. the same cant be said for the irish. it wasnt even until the 1800’s that black slaves started becoming the predominant variety of slaves, before the 1800s 2 out of every 3 people coming to america were white indentured servants. many of these irish slaves were convicted of bogus crimes like having land in ireland that the british wanted, so they would arrest them and offer them the choice of being executed or signing a contract to be an “indentured servant” and work as a slave in the new world. history has portrayed these indentured servitude contracts as something that was voluntary, and in some cases it was, but most of the time it was as i described above. theres nothing voluntary about being forced to choose between execution or “indentured servitude” for stealing a loaf of bread to feed your starving family

  • baws

    actually affirmative action can arguably be seen as similar to jim crow in the sense that its a codified and legalized form of racial discrimination geared specifically towards one group of people based on their gender and color of their skin

  • Richard Graves

    That if some of the dumbest intellectually dishonest white privilege thinking I’ve heard. Basically what you’re saying is 40 years of affirmative action which has predominately benefites white women, is the same as the dehumanization of a group of people, lynching them, giving the substandard education and public facilities, substandard health care, relegating them to third class citizenship…look dude, I understand this is a silly ass blog and all, but please spare me the silly ass false equivalences

  • baws

    obviously jim crow was worse. thats why i specifically said it can be seen as similar in the sense that its a codified and legalized racial discrimination, rather than just saying its the same thing and totally equal as you insinuated. but you know that, you just didnt like to hear it so you deliberately took what i said out of context in order to try to prop up your narrative

    of course its not anywhere near to the extent that jim crow was, but its undeniable that its a form of racial discrimination codified into law like jim crow was

  • JP

    AA is not Jim Crow. Not even close. But it’s also just myth that white women are it’s main beneficiaries. I think that was taken from a study that found they had benefitted most from AA in federal contracting and got applied to AA generally, but AA in admissions doesn’t give points or preference to white women just for being female. We need to fix K-12 education, and get rid of AA, so that everyone can have access to a quality education, at all levels.

  • Eboni Moore

    I can agree, but I think it’s very important that African-Americans and all of America know the true history of this country so that people don’t go around, making half assed comments

  • Craig

    I recall seeing quite a few shows that were predominantly black prior to the founding of BET in 1979. Maybe back then it was a good vehicle for greater exposure of black actors, but it has probably outlived its usefulness today.

  • Crash Override

    Has anyone actually looked at a show that has been condemned for racism? The Dukes Of Hazzard. A show which has been removed from programming because of the presence of a rebel flag on the roof of the car used in it. Ironically the show had a greater presence of People of Color in it’s cast over it’s tenure than did other major shows of the time (Seinfeld, Friends) and also showed them in a VERY positive light such as Sherrifs of neighboring towns etc, usually positive, influential upstanding citizens….

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Yes, but it did not fit the narrative of hate espoused by the left, particularly the self segregated black leftist demographic who lack the ability to comprehend the overt nuances of TDoH.

  • Eboni Moore

    I would have to say it has outlived its usefulness Robert Johnson sold it in the early 2000’s. The programming is terrible, but it is an alternative to white catered programs

  • Craig

    Is there such a thing as that today? A white catered program? I haven’t seen anything like that since the 70’s.

  • baws

    no theres not. it couldnt exist. it would be seen as highly racist. furthermore, i seriously doubt you can find any tv channel that has no black people on it at all on any of its shows

  • ea_iii

    [casts with little to no African American representation SINCE the 70’s] Seinfeld, Big Bang Theory, Golden Girls (for the older set), The Good Wife, Mike and Molly, Modern Family, Mad Men, Raising Hope, Breaking Bad, etc…

  • Craig

    So you are saying ZERO black people were in those shows?
    Or just not enough to pass your muster?

  • Crash Override

    So, to pick one program from the list specifically – Breaking Bad – you’re complaining at the lack of Black representation in a program about making and dealing Meth?

  • Craig

    Seinfeld had 19 black actors appear on the shows…what exactly is the magic number to equal sufficient appearances?

  • baws

    no black programming? i guess you never saw the cosby show, richard pryor, the jeffersons, the fresh prince, fat albert etc

  • Eboni Moore

    I didn’t say we didn’t have black programming my friend, I am saying we had to make our own lane and our own programming because we were excluded from all things American

  • Patriot4739 .

    I think your missing the point. sigh

  • Eboni Moore

    if the Oscars and other “American” shows included African-Americans in the first place, there wouldn’t be a need for BET, etc. we were excluded from all things American. So we made our own lane

  • Craig

    Didn’t Sidney Poitier, Denzel Washington and Halle Barry all win Oscars? I fail to see your point.

  • Eboni Moore

    yes it took quite some time and Denzel & Halle had to take degrading roles to win the Oscar. The bottom line is racism is still alive. The only thing separating us from them this opportunity

  • Craig

    You are obviously looking at this from a completely different lens. I guess in your mind nothing will ever be enough.
    As far as taking some time and playing demeaning roles, who forced those actors to take the roles they accepted?
    How many movie stars went their entire career without even getting a nomination. If you are always looking for racism, you will find it.

  • Eboni Moore

    you are right nothing will ever be enough after all we’ve been through & I’ M sorry that you will never understand. African Americans are a confused people which was their plan from the beginning and it’s definitely working

  • Craig

    So personal effort and responsibility have no role? Just give me reparations for something that happened 150 years ago.

  • JP

    Every network is biased, some to the left and some to the right. By that logic, no one of any race should be appearing anywhere.

  • Patriot4739 .

    Amen

  • Craig

    There is a big difference between equal access vs equal outcome…I think Stacy is speaking out against forcing the latter and favoring a particular group based solely on skin color

  • Eboni Moore

    you are correct, but racism was here before my people. This is what America wanted & we African-Americans want something we can relate to

  • Craig

    Racism was in existence before any of us were here in the USA.

  • Crash Override

    Technically it could be construed that racism led to the demise of Homo Neanderthalis, our ability as we gain intellect, education and our ability to learn from our past is to put it aside in all it’s forms and accept our position as Humans, No more African American, No Irish American, just Americans, just as there are Africans of all colors, Irish of all colors etc. Remove the skin, ignore tissue typing and we are ALL the same underneath (Accounting for gender) and we all have interchangeable parts. To create a bias on one part of our physical makeup to me makes less sense than to create a bias based on eye color.

  • Eboni Moore

    so now that we want our piece of America why does there have to be controversy, it’s been due to us for centuries & when we try to get ours there’s always the problem hypocritical & contradicting America typical

  • Crash Override

    When you say ‘our piece of America’ what do you mean. (Genuine question)

  • Craig

    who exactly is stopping you from getting anything? Who is preventing black people from achieving what they desire?
    Should we instill quotas in the NFL, NBA to make it more representative of the general population?
    Unless you are over 150 years old you haven’t experience slavery, so how has something that happened to ancestors over 150 years ago relevant for today?

  • Crash Override

    Should we mention the colonization of Australia vs today?

  • Brittanis Trulove Dameah

    greed and money from american people is stopping african american people and all others who had no ancestors to help them with their start of their journey in america. Not only were african american hit with slavery, inequality, slower education, they where also fearful of americans white americans. Its so much that plays into the topic of race and segregation but it offends people so they’re not rational when they talk and it makes its hard to converse.

  • Craig

    Every race on earth has experienced slavery, and at some point that dead horse needs to be left alone.
    Greed? I see plenty of black athletes, movie stars, musicians making plenty of money. Look at Oprah….and you think somehow whites are keeping black people back? Opportunity is there for all people, and that is why America is the greatest country on the earth. By being born here, you have basically won the lottery as compared to many, many other countries. It is up to you to take advantage of that.

  • Eboni Moore

    ARE YOU SERIOUS CRAIG?? Contrary to what white people may think we are more than entertainers and athletes. Slavery isn’t the only thing holding us back, systematic racism. Jim Crow, the industrial prison complex system, police brutality, poor schools and neighborhoods is what America gave us. When African Americans tried to get somewhere “America” destroyed us, hence, Tulsa, Oklahoma, 1921. That was the first act of homeland terrorism. Read about it

  • Craig

    And who promoted Jim Crow laws? Who is holding back the black race…the same party. Try using your vote to make a difference instead of throwing it away for anyone with (D) by their name.

  • Eboni Moore

    how old are you? You seem very naïve to America and her dirty ways. You might need a history lesson & a sociology class

  • Craig

    I am probably at least 20 years older than you.I have seen plenty and experienced it as well. How about you?

  • Eboni Moore

    so that would make you around 60 which is old enough to know that America has it in for black people. Every time we try to rise up, they shut it down. Do you know about Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1921. The first act of homeland terrorism?

  • joel

    you aren’t ‘due’ anything. you think you’re entitled to a paycheck or a hand out because of the lives your ancestors lead whether by choice or not?! get in line!! What about the irish? they were slaves. do you see them requesting reparations for their ancestors? No, because they’re stronger than that. They have elevated themselves. You can too, if you stop hanging your future life on the pretense of those past. grow the f*ck up. take responsibility for your OWN situation and stop blaming America 200 years ago for the fact that you don’t have everything you want in life.

  • Eboni Moore

    what you don’t understand is most of your people came here willingly my people were forced to do everything. Other races got some form of reparations we got nothing. I’m finding my way very well thank you, but a lot of my brothers and sisters don’t know the game and continue to get caught in Americas web

  • joel

    You’re not african-american. have you ever been to africa? You’re an american, you happen to be black, and therefore are a black american. If YOU personally moved here from africa, then i’ll accept that description. If not, you’re just a black american, which is something to be proud of, just like i’m a white american, but can we just drop the adjectives and call ourselves americans?!

  • Nina

    Have you heard of any country or continent called “Black”? I haven’t. My ancestors were from Africa and that is my heritage and being called black is wiping out my legacy and my roots. If you want to be called something that has no origin, feel free, but do not try to discredit those who know their roots. Therefore I AM AFRICAN AMERICAN.

  • Eboni Moore

    thank you for the clarification white people are still trying to set us back

  • baws

    a few years back morgan freeman said the same thing, that we should get rid of black history month. liberals loved him for it.

    its okay if its a black liberal that says it, just not a black conservative

  • ImmaKillit

    I myself hate black history month. Not because of its meaning or history but of all months its the shortest and shittiest month of the year. I think if black people want to celebrate our accomplishment in this country we should do it year round. But most black can give two shit about what Stacey or Morgan thinks. They dont represent the masses by any stretch.

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    But most black can give two shit about what Stacey or Morgan thinks. They dont represent the masses by any stretch.

    No, they represent a path that leads out of the indoctrinated group think the masses are programmed to follow. It is an uncommon path, but there are many other paths out of that mess. Learn a trade, earn a degree, start a business, do something, anything to avoid falling into that “you are a victim but fight back by being a ghetto thug” stereotype lifestyle.

    its the shortest and shittiest month of the year.

    You had every opportunity to dress it up and make it worthy of presentation, but no, you just can’t seem to transform anything you touch into anything other than a ghetto. It is such a shame you will miss the degree to which that truly indicts you.

    Let me ‘splain it so ya understand me, bro…

    Someone gives you oil and a refinery and instead of making gasoline you loot the joint and burn it down.

  • disqus_UqXPmqKctz

    Stacy is completely correct. Everyone is an INDIVIDUAL and not required to join a skin color group. That equals self-Segregation….. not the Freedom of Integration.

  • deplorable_radtraveller

    Handing out participation medals nullifies the purpose of spotlighting excellence.

  • Carol Anderson

  • njemnu

    We are finished if we have to be
    part of a group that looks down and talks down to African Americans every day. Where a large part of yhat school of thought thinks being black is inherently inferior. You then have to be outrageously against your own people, even family to have any credibility. It is a terrible place to be. You cannot fight your people and win. Sad!

  • Craig

    Wouldnt the same be true if as a people you were forced to think a particular way or else face being ostracized from that same group?
    There seems to be a double standard at play here.

  • njemnu

    No double standard! She is not the first to criticize a group. In fact she is not the first to criticize African Americans, I do criticize them myself.She is free to do so and bear the consequences.

  • Craig

    So why then is there hatred directed at people like Clarence Thomas, Condoleeza Rice and other black conservatives?

  • njemnu

    Because they think conservatism means being against everything that is in the interest of african Americans. I am a pretty conservative guy, but i cannot countenance a conservatism that targets races or ethnicities. And that is what it has come to. If Mccain, Romney, Cantor, Bush are not conservative enough then I wonder what that conservatism really means.

  • Craig

    No, conservatism means equal opportunity, school choice, breaking the bonds of poverty by removing the things in place designed to keep blacks dependent.

  • Kevin Craven

    Craig, what specific conservative policies encourage those items?

  • Craig

    Plenty of school choice proposals, flat tax, eliminating waste in government programs. Forcing the breakup of families by punishing intact families needing assistance….I could go on.

  • Kevin Craven

    If all things were equal we could have that discussion . Sort of like creating new rules in a race where you already have a head start.

  • Craig

    There will never be place where all things are equal this side of Heaven. So make the best of things now, empower those who want to make change and quit voting for people just because there is a (D) behind their name.

  • njemnu

    I am not dependent. I have a good job I am proud of and pay lots of taxes too. And I think things will only get better. America’s outlook is positive. I do not see why some people are frightened.

  • JP

    You think Thomas and Rice are against everything that is in the interests of African Americans? I mean, that can be your opinion, but there’s certainly a very credible argument that you’re wrong on that too.

  • Crash Override

    How about working towards a school of thought that stops referring to themselves as African American at all? Or Irish American, Polish American or any other preface. How about trying to remove those boundaries, stop thinking ‘Our People’ ‘Their People’ and start thinking as Americans, and People. Segregation in the mind is still a form of segregation and helps perpetuate perceived issues.

  • Craig

    Exactly we are either Americans or we are not.

  • njemnu

    That is wishful thinking. Who came up with the I dea of race, tribe, family etc. These are social constructs we cannot do away with. Same as private property and freedom cannot be wiped away simply because we wish to. Instead of wishing, be fair and just and all will be well. And a black artist will not have to make herself look so ridiculous. People look at her and there is dissonance.

  • Martin

    Yet she is merely echoing the words of Morgan Freeman who was applauded when he said it.

  • njemnu

    Applauded by who? The two comments should not be juxtaposed. The context is different, and by the way they are just individuals. Those comments do not carry any more weight than if I made them.

  • Martin

    Incidentally, why not refer to her as an artist first and foremost, her color should not factor into that.

  • Kevin Craven

    We didn’t choose to be called african americans. White americans call us that. Whites created social classes and racial groups. Something that isn’t taught in the revised history books our children read in school. Our last names don’t even represent our ancestry. There’s no factual basis on which you can state that blacks act as a segregated group of people, neither can Stacy, who is a benficiary of BET, JET magazine, The Cosby Show and other “black” interests.BET is white-owned, you DO know that right? Blacks don’t own in media, yet we consume it the most. But, I promise I can show show how we are not represented in any part of society.

  • Craig

    Actually the term Negro was used up until the 1960-70’s

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    We didn’t choose to be called african americans.

If you want to known by your skin color, I will gladly call you a brown colored American, where as someone with irish heritage might be a pink colored American and Norwegian heritage is pale colored american, a Mexican may be white colored american, or beige colored american or brown colored American.

  • Kevin Craven

    Karen, perhaps you will understand my point more when a member of the US Census team knocks on your door this year.Race and class is a part of our society, and created by design. History proves it in spite of your refusal to recognize it. It’s become to easy to stray away from a central premise to offer up an opinion that has no merit. I have tons of facts at my disposal.

  • ImmaKillit

    You thing we as a people came up with that??? Geeeezus. Bet you think we came up with calling ourselves minorities or niggers. Wow all that talk about school and you sound like you never step into any kind of class in your life buddy.

  • Martin

    No but perhaps in the 21st century it’s time to put it away, regardless of who said it first.

  • ImmaKillit

    Youre talking to the wrong person about that buddy. Theres alot of things that need to be put away like police brutality and homophobia and religious persecution. Like you said its the 21 century.

  • Karen T.

    It was Jesse Jackson who coined the term “African American”. I believe that people like you are followers of him and Sharpton. Let me ask you, when was the last time you were able to buy a $3000 suit out of the pocket of the very people you purportedly represented? They may have marched with King, but they profited after his death. Open your eyes.

  • 2cold1

    In 1988 Jesse Jackson while still in his prominence,came up with the idea that we be called African-Americans since we are minorities in the same notion as other ethnicities such as Asian-Americans, Mexican-Americans, etc;…..get it? It wasn’t for segregational purposes, it was for self identification and to also distance ourselves away from the psychological effect from the ways/terms the word black is used in America like black monday, black friday,etc;.

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    If you put anything before being an American then you are segregating yourself.

  • ImmaKillit

    What is an american? Because last i checked its doesnt fit into any one ideology. If thats the case have you ever served in our Armed forces? Because i have brothers black white asian decent latino and otherwise and they come from all walks of life. EVERY american does not have the same values and thats what make it a great place. Diversity is awesome but this country wasnt/doesnt live up to the very foundation is was built on.

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Ah, you have touched on the very heart of the matter; values, which are founded upon self worth, so you either value yourself as an individual and drive to excel or you do not value yourself and lay down to play victim.

  • Christine

    This article is a white person’s dream. Stacey herself said she is not educated, and has formed her opinions through her experience. All of the black organizations were brought to existence due to lack of inclusion and not seeing ourselves reflected AS MUCH as our white counterparts. That still is the representative today. And for white people to say well you have xyz…whites have xyz and 123. Why is it wrong to want the exact same thing? To be completely equal on all levels? I want to turn on the tv and see my self on every channel all day too. White people must think we want to see their shows all day everyday, or they would have more shows with blacks in them. And the 7 blacks did receive Oscars was over 88 years. There’s only been 7 strong actors in that many years?! I think not. Stacey however is entitled to her opinion, but trust me she doesn’t speak for most

  • Christine

    Like I said this article gives white people all the ammunition to tell us how they really feel because a black woman agrees with them. ONE black woman

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

  • njemnu

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Remove your blindfold. She is a beautiful, intelligent, articulate woman with a following who is trying to help you cast off your shackles and think for yourself. Stop riding the paradigm, shed the thug stereotype and become a role model worthy of emulation. All that is required is embracing the notions of personal responsibility and self reliance. Become a law abiding, productive member of your community, raise your children, be a man. You can do it, you simply have to commit.

  • njemnu

    I do not take lessons from you. I am comfortable with life I live. I don’t know about you. Maybe you need a leader.

  • ImmaKillit

    Thug stereotype? Do you know njemnu personally? Have you been wronged/robbed/accosted by this man? You lost any merit in anything you can possibly say by stereotyping that man after telling him to drop is supposed label. You are clearly the one who needs to take the blindfold off. Because if ya havent noticed you’re bigotry is showing.

  • 2cold1

    I didn’t see anyone here who’s response on this thread was thug like or for that matter “black stereotypical” like which is where you went to. I would suggest you stop watching Fox news or American media overall solely for your feed on Black Americans. One size does not fit all. Look in depth and you will see that a good majority of us are actually productive,responsible members of American society. Many immigrants come here with preconceived notions and judgement about us upon arrival. If you are American born, your statement is all the more disappointing and appalling.Many of us are actually responsible husbands,fathers,entreprenuers,etc; who value the same things most other Americans do. Are you jealous because Arabs are under represented in this equation? You probably own a store or know of someone the likes of you who do in a black community. Would you like to know thoughts or what is being said about the likes of you who could care less about the communities that they serve? Who are you to pass “generalized” advise to someone you’ve never met or have zero knowledge about personally to “embrace the notions of personal responsibility and self reliance.
    Become a law abiding, productive member of your community, raise your
    children, be a man.” That’s below the belt. This alone prove that your info/knowledge about this segment of society called African-Americans was through a looking glass. Like Stacy we don’t all fit into the same pair of Jordans. My general advise to you sir is a simple one, FREE YOUR MIND.

  • Gadget Tribe

    oh…this is interesting. A Sikh who is an uncle tom? What happened? You’ve been westernized by the whiny whites? hoping to be a ‘good colored person’ so that the whites will throw you a bone? hahahaha! Oh…I get it. You’re petrified that once people of color overtake whites in the power structure, you’ll be at their mercy and you’d rather have the weak, entitled whites in power? “Become a role model worthy of emulation.” Wow – I’m impressed. You say “Become a law abiding, productive member of your community…” You’re a well trained one, aren’t you. Let me ask you – Your master who trained you well…do they abide by the rules? Do they shed their thug stereotype and become role models worthy of emulation? Are they law abiding, productive members of society? White America has and continues to be just the opposite. At the hands of white America, innocents have died, oil has been stolen, Natives have been marginalized, minorities have been oppressed, land stolen, lies told, justice withheld, and laws violated. Whites kill more people than any other race in the world. Whites in America kill random people in large numbers using assault weapons. Whites call Blacks thugs, but when Blacks want to kill someone, they go for them directly. Whites shoot up malls, movie theaters, schools with kids in it. Whites cut people up, store them in ziplock freezer bags and eat them for dinner. They invent drugs. And now, they are showing their ignorance and true nature in wanting to elect Trump (made in their image and likeness) so that he will ‘Make America Great Again’ (Code for ‘Make America White Again’). When that happens, you better go back to Asia. So these are the people you want us to emulate? hahahaha. You’re a simple one aren’t you? #simpleton

    It is NOT necessary or even valid to assume that this discussion is not being had by people who are ALL productive members of American society. You have insulted a great many folks on this post. The stereotypes you suggest in your previous statement are proof to the point that race does still play a role in negatively influencing folks in this country. Your statements were truly insulting, sir. You should take them back.

  • Carl Poole III

    I doubt MLK would fully agree with Ms. Dash.

  • lujlp

    I have a question, given recent african immigrants and african americans make a combined total of nearly 12% of the population of america and white americans of european decent make up nearly 70% why would you expect to see your demographic represented as much as a demographic five times larger?

  • Christine

    So you’re saying because we are small in number, our visibility to the ret of the population should be limited? That’s ridiculous. If anything tv needs more diversity to reflect all people in the US not just Blacks…Native Americans, Middle Easterns, Asians etc. However, the way you think is a popular attitude in this country and that’s a problem.

  • BigMike

    No he is saying to be equal, 70% of tv should be featuring whites and 12% featuring African Americans. Anything more starts to become NOT equal. So which exactly are you wanting? Equal or not? Because what you asked for would be an over imbalance based on population numbers.
    Speaking about the Oscars, It doesn’t take a rocket science degree to understand that the bigger the pool you’re picking from, the better your chances of finding superior actors and actresses. So since there are more whites, they will be represented more than a smaller population. On the flip side if you look at a group like the NBA, which tends to feature more African Americans as the top players, then it means they are much more likely to be chosen for MVPs or other rewards.

    It’s a number’s game, but its fact. African Americans make up only a small percentage of the population. So fair and equal means you should get approximately 12% representation in basically anything. Of course that is approximate as talent isn’t equal across all boards and categories. All people are different when it comes to various things and skills (not because of their races, just because people train and work differently).

  • Christine

    Ok you want to speak semantics. The “pool” should have an equal amount of artists from different cultures respresented, not just blacks. The movies are out there. A lot of mainstream theaters will not carry they but can be found on the Urban Movie Channel etc.(Betcha didn’t know it existed huh). Also, Americans should see the same amount of shows advertisements and movies on tv that reflect all on every channel. And since they do not, that’s where we make channels to see ourselves and other ethnicities as well. Why on all the major stations there is one or two multiracial show? There are plenty of actors and actresses. So let me dumb it down. I want o see as much as me on a mainstream channel as you see of you, until then I want my BET.

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    That you feign not to see the ridiculousness, irony, and hypocrisy of subscribing to exclusion of those not like you while demanding others embrace and endorse inclusion of those not like them reveals much about your motives and character.

  • Anderson Tate III

    I understand the reasoning.Bear in mind these points,though.

    In the early part of the 20th century, blacks wanted to be fully integrated into America, but whites didn’t want it. To the point that it became the law of the land(Jim Crow, Seperate but Equal) and became a political platform(Segregation now, tomorrow, and forever), basically tossing out the 14th amendment. The end result of this casting blacks aside was forming things for blacks(NAACP, HBCU, BET, etc.).

    Cultural variations kinda make sense for niche channels, but if full integration is the goal, don’t stop at BET. Why not get rid of channels for other groups? ( WE, Oxygen , LOGO, Univision, etc.).

    I’m all for working hard and making my own way, but anyone who doesn’t learn from their history are bound to repeat it. Remembering slavery is a way to measure the progress of blacks. So don’t tell them to get over it, no more than you would tell a jew to get over the Holocaust.

  • Craig

    Excellent points. Learn from history, both the good and bad so the bad doesn’t get repeated.

  • Kevin Craven

    Applause, well stated!

  • Eboni Moore

    amen

  • lujlp

    A couple of points, most whites didnt care, and many businesses under Jim Crowe laws didnt like loosing money to satisfy the racist leanings of a small minority with political power.

    Second, you been to many liberal college campuses lately and seen the way they treat jews?

  • Nina

    Martin Luther King Jr. did not bash black people and tell them to search for their own individual freedom. He told them to join together to fight injustice and inequality. Stacey Dash can talk all she wants. I pray that in the future she doesn’t try to fall back on the very people (black people)who she turns her nose up at when she realizes that the reality of her vote is with the wrong people who whether they are conservative or not, would look at her as nothing but a house negro, only fit to partake in the masters lust in order to preserve the purity of his white wife and the second class citizen in which is farther down the line then the gratitude and respect that they have shown our black president. If anyone is brainwashed, it is Stacey Dash. If She relates all black people as welfare recipients because they are democratic voters and those who are republican voters are better off, she was asleep during the Bush administrations and deaf during the Obama administrations when he was called everything but his name. She should not bite the hand that fed her (BET) nor should she use her childhood to act as if she knows her roots because it goes way beyond the days before she was born and it still is going on today. Black history month is a reminder of how far we have come and those great leaders who made it possible for her to have her opinions. She is very misguided and has clearly been bamboozled.

  • Eboni Moore

    you are absolutely true they use it to serve their purposes and when they’re done with us they make sure to remind us that we are still n****rs just like Bill Cosby

  • Gmaine Ford

    Stacey acts as though a black person subscribing to White ideology makes her some kind of rebel. There were blacks who fought on the side of the Confederates during the civil war,blacks who called Malcolm X a bigot and Dr King a rebel rouser. Blackse who agreed with Richard Nixon’s Redlining policy your not an independent thinker Stacey just an all American token coon Blacks like you. Have been around since Slavery

  • lujlp

    To be fair Malcom X was a bigot and he admitted it himself before the Muslim Brotherhood killed him for saying the same things Dash said

  • Burgess Krell ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Coon?

  • Mark

    There are plenty of white people, myself included, that would not refer to you as a “person of color”. Me, and my white ilk would refer to you as a “person”, and like you or dislike you based on your personality. Hopefully this will spread. I do not like segregation, and I don’t care if society at large are locking a specific group out, or if the group is self-isolating. I know that absolutely nothing that is important about me is visible from the outside. I know that about every other person on the planet too.

  • Techfan

    First off Ms. Stacey Dash….YOU’RE WRONG!!!

    But not about what you think. Not every other black person has disowned you. In fact, there are a whole legion of blacks who agree with every word you said, and have said on other issues. You have the guts to do what few others in our community have refused to do for decades…you challenge the thinking of the mainstream black establishment in this country, and it scares them to death.

    Ironically, I am a black pastor in the city of Pittsburgh, the birthplace of unionism, with the United Steelworkers headquartered here, along with the United Mine Workers of America and about a dozen other unions. Pittsburgh is home to the infamous and historic US Steel Strike and Rebellion by the Steelworkers’ Union against Andrew Carnegie and Henry Clay Frick. So when I look at my congregation, I see faces of people who come from generations of being told what to do and what to think about issues.

    And here you come along….a young, black, beautiful and talented woman who has the audacity to tell us….WAKE UP!!!!

    So I urge you to keep on fighting the fight. I would love to have you come and speak at my church to my congregants, so they can hear a different voice than mine. But in the meantime, keep looking up.

  • aaron

    if you dont like liberals join the club, yet in still you went on a network that lied on black men on mlk day to make it seem we had some sort of war on the police, what they didnt mention was the ones who killed those police officers where white. they paraded zimmermen around as if he was some sort of hero mean while treating trayvon like a crook. over and over again they create lies and twist the truth to make us seem like animals and thats the platform you go to inorder to express your new found conservatism. thats b.s. you sold us all out to fox news for a bag of chips

  • BigMike

    So is MSN and CNN also spreading lies? Last I checked they aired that Zimmerman was acquitted and justified as well just as the courts and evidence showed. You may disagree with it but if you followed the actual court proceedings I find it hard to not have doubts, which means aquittal. MSN, CNN, Fox, etc. It doesn’t matter which one they all pretty much air the report the same exact crap which is to say whatever will sale the most. Anything involving race sales because it keeps the people fuming and rallied into their own self-segregated groups fighting each other instead of worrying about other bigger issues that affect all of us as one people.

  • aaron

    I agree with most of your reply. The cable news networks are all pretty much linked in to politics and the ravagers of the system. There are a lot of things I can go on and on about cable news especially in race baiting, msnbc gives al sharpton a platform and all he does is race bait, have you ever seen him fight for an American citizen that wasnt black? Yet and still because of my world view, and the things my people face from within, i.e. gang violence, jesse jackson, and the crabs in a barrel syndrom, and from without, i.e. criminal justice system, police shootings, and being disenfranchised, I cant say that the other news cast lies has more of a negative effect on my people and America as a whole as fox news, story after story of lies and twisted truth, just so people can feel better about the horrid place of race relations of this country. They have cost lives, and not just those doctors that where killed after they published their addressees on t.v. for any one of my people to go on fox is down right hurtful to me. Im not angry im actually hurting in my heart.

  • BigMike

    LOL at these comments just proving her point…

  • aaron

    being an independent thinker does not mean going on to a network that only likes blacks who are willing to think like them. back when are greatest heroes where fighting injustice it was conservatives that tried to keep us in line. even back when democrats where conservatives. William f. Buckley said in the late forties that being a conservative was to stand athwart history and telling it to stop, i.e. no more progressive movement. This is the guy fox news celebrates as the father of modern conservatism. How could he say such a thing when blacks, natives, and even Jews where being persecuted. Maybe because he did not care about what things where hurting us, jim crow, lynchings etc. For fox news not to acknowledge this is down right hurtful, as much as the hurt they cause by pointing out black on black crime to justify police shootings, at the same time never mentioning white on white crime, like when that guy shot up the movie theater. How can you walk on that set knowing the deaths they have motivated with their lies and sensationalism? Please answer this question please!!!!

  • BigMike

    You’re cherry picking what you think or want him to have meant. Just because one has conservative beliefs doesn’t mean no more progression, it just means don’t progress at the expensive of basic traditional values such as family, community, hard work, responsibility, etc, etc. It is entirely possible to be conservative and still be against such historical atrocities as the things you mentioned. People can care about many things at once, its not one thing or another, this or that. The world doesn’t work in such a black and white manner (no pun intended).

  • Elie Challita

    That’s the problem: Conservatism was supposed to be society’s safety brake, allowing us to absorb change and progress without risking a mad dash forward.
    Unfortunately conservatives today aren’t so much putting on the brakes as they are driving to put the whole damn car in reverse.

  • aaron

    I see what you are saying, and I will think about it more. Yet this is a guy who wanted dr. King to stop doing what he was doing. yet and still you are right I have met lots of conservatives that werent into oppressive means to keep things the same. yet and still the times we are referring to needed drastic change in order to bring about change for not just blacks, but for women and the poor of this country. During his times most of the country did not worry about those that were suffering, just look at the movies of that era. They call it Americas golden years while large portions of America were over looked from women to natives.

  • aaron

    btw I dont watch b.e.t.

  • Numberone

    Question for Ms. Dash. Who would you suggest voting for? The conservative/liberal argument is a joke. Are you claiming a conservative currently running for the highest office deserves our vote? If so, who? I would think someone who has sought our vote or listened to our voice. Who would that be? Many local offices are ran by conservatives. Can you name specific ones who have our interest at heart? The doing the same thing; expecting different results argument is moot…unless you can provide a clear alternative. Provide the conclusion…or you’re commentary is pointless. I’ll be listening to hear specific strategy from you.

  • Monroe Frazier

    Stacey Dash did nothing to confirm any position or ideology she has espoused. She has expatiated nothing. Her attempt to clarify herself has only made her look worse.

    For what it’s worth, blue_persuasion, I think you’re stretching this for the sake of trolling.

    Why don’t you point out what she said that is wrong and why it’s wrong.

  • Jason Thompson

    Ms. Dash as an educated Black man I respectfully disagree with your opinions and take exception to your article not because it’s your opinion but because you try to pass it off as fact. So let’s talk facts, the facts are neither side Republican or Democrat cares about the plight of Black people. Both sides care about the status quo and what keeps it that way. I’m going to try and address your comments as you’ve written them so that you don’t feel as if another Black person is attacking you. You speaking on Fox isn’t the issue, the issue as I see it is the fact that you aren’t being truthful when you speak. Your opinion is your opinion but when you speak as if your opinion is fact, I have a problem with that. Unlike any other culture in this country when a Black person of your influence speaks, America believes it’s the way we all think. Again Democrats are no worse than Republicans, and for you to speak against them just because the majority of Blacks vote Democrat just because you don’t is irresponsible. For you to think that conservatives would be better for this country and Blacks, has me questioning your thought process because statistics show and prove that Democrats have done far better for this country over the past 30 years. You speak about racial independence and segregation as if these things would ruin the the Black population. Every other ethnic group in this country segregates themselves and has their own racial independence and because of it, they are far better off than Black people. Does that mean that they are racist or hate other ethnic groups, absolutely not, it means that they take care of self first before they worry about integrating. You say you owe it to your kids a world where they can speak without backlash, you actually owe them the truth. If you were honest with yourself, this entire peace is rhetoric and lacks truth. Again, I’d love the opportunity to have this discussion with you, but I’m sure truth isn’t what you want to hear.

  • blue_persuasion

    With all due respect, sir, if democrats have done so much for this country, why is there more black plight than there was 60 years ago?

    The fact is, your race has been used and abused by the democrats. You’re being controlled still, but this time the chains are represented by welfare and other entitlements, and the plantation is now represented by the ghettos and the suppression of the class as a whole.

    One would think if something isn’t working, y’all might do something to change it.

    And now even less of your young men and women will get jobs because Obama is importing millions of underclass individuals from Mexico and now from Serbia. The black race has been tapped out by the democrats for the last 60+ years, so they’re ditching you now and moving on to the next victims.

  • Elie Challita

    I’m pretty damned sure that black hardship isn’t worse than it was 60 years ago. To cite one statistic, the household income for black households has risen (and fallen) following the same trends as all other demographics.
    Back households were hit much harder than white ones during the recession, and have yet to recover at the same rate, but that’s hardly the fault of liberalism. And you forget to factor in that black households don’t keep up with white ones because inherited wealth is a huge predictor of economic performance, and black households have had much less wealth to inherit than white ones have had since the inception of this country.

  • tapdancer47

    So Stacey Dash writes a blog which is basically a rehash of talking points you’d typically hear from a Fox News pundit and claims to be an “independent thinker”? She goes on to claim Fox does not like some of what she says; what a joke! Of course you’re not fooling anybody.

    Stacey’s thirst for white acceptance and willingness to bash fellow blacks is exactly why she’s employed at Fox. For instance, she would never accuse AIPAC or many other Jewish organizations that cater to Jewish interests as “self-segregating”, why? Because that would not fit the Fox’s narrative.

    Whoopi Goldberg, Damon Dash and many others simply pointed out your lies, like “you win an Image/BET Award only if you’re black” etc

    You only sank to shock-pundit/blogger because, ironically, because you couldn’t land a job on a decent A-List film in the past two decades. And you have the audacity to bash the very people who fight for inclusion on your behalf?

    As many have pointed out, you have appeared on a couple of shows on BET and countless magazines that cater to black viewership/readership. When did it dawn on you that it was such a terrible thing, was it when you joined Fox News?

  • Michael A. Carkin

    I must say the brainwashed are amassing. They hate the truth I see. They love the liberal because they will always tell them wrong is right, right is wrong don’t listen to the facts and you will be strong.

  • Michael Demeule-Calella

    Hey Stacey you seem to forget you are benefitting from BET right now..the fresh prince of belaire remember that you hypocrite.

  • Darin Lee Bolvin Jr.

    Uhh, she was on 1 episode and Fresh Prince was originally on NBC, distributed through Warner Brothers…she’s really not benefiting from a 22 year old single episode of a cancelled show.

  • ImmaKillit

    ITs called syndication. BET buys the rights to the show so they pick up the tab for those who still get paid. So yeah shes still getting paid for the one show from who? You guessed it BET

  • Darin Lee Bolvin Jr.

    Lol, I’m well aware of what syndication is. For the actual stars, perhaps, but for a single episode walk on, they aren’t entitled to residuals. Show creators, producers, and main star make the most, but off a 22+ year old show, even Will isn’t making much, and the stars make less and less each time an episode is played…so no, Dash isn’t making a damn thing from Fresh Prince…but she probably is from the bunch of videos she starred in on BET.

  • ImmaKillit

    True in the sense that the principle would be paid to those who are paid more. But to say shes not getting paid isnt true, She may get a check for a dollar for her episode but that broad is getting paid nonetheless. But good argument bro. No bullshit

  • Darin Lee Bolvin Jr.

    I don’t really think she’s paid at all…usually to get residual pay from syndication, it has to be on a contract (usually long term) so someone like Tyra Banks or Nia Long MIGHT since they were on a lot of episodes, just can’t see them paying Stacey for 20+ years for a few lines of dialogue in a mediocre episode…but like I said, she probably IS making money from BET, but more likely from the various music videos and a few movies on there. All love regardless – just trying to keep information straight.

  • Patriot2016

    She’s not a hypocrite for speaking the truth.

    It’s called guts.

    The problem is not segregation; if people want to segregate they have a right to. The problem is holding others to a standard you don’t hold yourselves to. Focusing on race is racism. Besides there is absolutely no grounds for this racist attack on the Oscars. This is about a few racist blacks, immature, dysfunctional, making others responsible for their insecurity. If you happen to win an Oscar, it’s for talent, not race, and of course politics… And I realize that only a tiny number of cry babies are making trouble, so this is partly the media’s fault as well for giving attention to those racist delinquents.

  • Trey Vaught

  • Elie Challita

    Nah, race-baiters like you are just getting too preachy for everyone’s taste.

  • Elie Challita

    Race baiting who, exactly? I’m an Arab immigrant, and I’ve been called everything from sand n*gger to camel jockey to towel head, and profiled quite a few times as well.

    Care to explain to me how I was race-baiting all those delightful interactions simply by walking while brown and bearded?

  • jtoe

    Well, let’s see: by accusing Trey of thinking black people are beneath him because he’s white, and then thinking you can’t race-bait someone because you’re not white. I guess only those privileged, slave whipping crackers can be racist eh? Everyone else is apparently too ‘uppity’ for massa. Like you weren’t trying to start an argument there, troll?

  • Elie Challita

    Not an argument, but his comment is sadly ironic.

    It’s very easy to self-importantly say “finally, a black person who isn’t whining” as if the entire black population was doing nothing but sitting on their hands whining.

    Meanwhile, people like Trey (and, I assume, yourself) ignore the fact that the chance of upwards mobility for minorities is much smaller than that for the white majority:
    http://economix.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/07/25/the-complex-story-of-race-and-upward-mobility/

    Furthermore, you ignore the fact that the average black family’s wealth is ten times less than that of the average white family’s wealth, and that this disparity was only increased in the last recession.

    So by all means, stay on your high horse and keep claiming that all black people are whining for no good reason. I’m sure your armor is as impervious to sarcasm as it is to facts.

  • jtoe

    “It’s very easy to self-importantly say “finally, a black person who isn’t whining” as if the entire black population was doing nothing but sitting on their hands whining.”

    Yeah, he didn’t say the entire population was. All he said was that he had finally came across a black person who wasn’t whining about boycotting oscars, or claiming that whites were trying to segregate entertainment while having essentially a segregated tv channel dedicated to their race.

    “Meanwhile, people like Trey (and, I assume, yourself) ignore the fact that the chance of upwards mobility for minorities is much smaller than that for the white majority:”

    So? How often do you hear anyone say: ‘finally, an indian, or a latino, or an asian who isn’t whining’? Every race of people out there has a sob story to tell, even white folk (unless you think they all live in gold-plated mansions, and spend the day basking in their ‘privilege’). Everyone just happens to know which race is the most vocal about it, by a long shot.

    “Furthermore, you ignore the fact that the average black family’s wealth is ten times less than that of the average white family’s wealth, and that this disparity was only increased in the last recession.”

    Yeah, read above. Hell, you’re arab, and you’re doing the whining for them.

    “So by all means, stay on your high horse and keep claiming that all black people are whining for no good reason. I’m sure your armor is as impervious to sarcasm as it is to facts.”

    Again, you’re the one saying ‘all black people’, and I wouldn’t consider spoiled, rich as hell movie stars whining about not getting to be part of the back-patting circle jerk that is the oscars, to be a good reason to complain.

  • Elie Challita

    Really? When you claim that you’ve found the one black person who isn’t whining, how does that not imply that every black person other than this one is just whining?

    People don’t say that about other minorities because there are different stereotypes for different minorities. Saying “finally, a legal Mexican immigrant” isn’t any better though.
    Furthermore the black community has been much better at organizing to represent its demands like during the civil rights era, which is why you’re more used to hearing their “whining” than that of, say, Native Americans.

    Say what you will about the Oscar controversy, but Stacy Dash’s spiel up there didn’t stop at the Oscars. She’s gone beyond it to completely ignore most of current and historical facts and claim that conservatism is actually good for her community, so the discussion is about far more than the Oscars circle jerk.

  • ilegitane

    Hey Elie…are you saying its better to be in the majority?

  • Elie Challita

    I’m afraid I don’t quite get your question.
    Do you mean to ask whether someone’s life, statistically speaking, is likely to be easier if they are born white in the US as opposed to belonging to a minority?

    Finally a white person not shooting

  • jtoe

    Says the guy with the name ‘ImmaKillit’. Who, by his screen pic, I’d assume is black, talking about a country where the overwhelming majority of black men who die from gun violence, die by other black man’s hand. The nerve on you.

  • ImmaKillit

    I thought you would say something insightful but i was sadly mistaken. You obviously dont understand the meaning behind it and had you asked its probably out of the scope of what your feeble mind can handle. He said something ridiculously dumb and since you cant type sarcasm, you obviously didnt understand. But nice try Joe!

  • jtoe

    Wow. I mean, there is NO argument whatsoever in your reply. Clearly you couldn’t refute anything I just said, so you filled your pants and then hurled out as many insults as possible, hoping people wouldn’t realize you have nothing to say. How does that feel, to know that you’re a hypocrite and a troll? I’m just curious.

  • ImmaKillit

    What the hell was i suppose to argue?That my screen name perpetuates a negative stereotype that per your notion reflect negatively back on my community? No sir im not a hypocrite. I have plenty to say but again you wouldn’t understand it. You obviously didn’t because you trolled me to argue about to sarcastic rebuttal to another loser who just trolled someone else with something extremely racist. I did fill my pants when you replied because i love to debate with people who obvious have a hidden agenda and hate when truth is thrown in their face. Just so we’re clear you didn’t have a response to what i said either brainiac. So who’s really the troll?

  • Gadget Tribe

    I got this simpleton! They are just weak whiny white boys who are scared shitless of the Black Man. They are such complainers, whiners and are emotionally fragile.

  • jtoe

    “What the hell was i suppose to argue?That my screen name perpetuates a negative stereotype that per your notion reflect negatively back on my community?”

    I couldn’t have said it better. At least you see how it makes you look like an absolute hypocrite when you attack white people for being violent, while perpetuating that very stereotype.

    The rest of your comment is again you claiming you could argue with me, but I just ‘wouldn’t understand it’ so you won’t even try. Translation: I have nothing to say, but I’m still pretending I do! And some more insults, insults, blah blah, etc. Really? I mean, not only did you say nothing that you hadn’t already said before, you then made my point for me about you being a hypocrite. I’m not gonna spend all night reading your mindless abuse, so I’m done with you.

  • ImmaKillit

    Youre a dipshit. lol You keep bypassing my obvious sarcasm and protecting the dumbass i comment on. You just highlighted my argument so no only are you slow but you seem to have short term memory. Are you related to that fish on finding nemo? Because i mean come on dude. You can stay fixated on what i didnt say? but it doesnt mean i didnt say it. Good luck with life Joe. You seem to have been mindlessly abused far before you trolled me lol. Gnite!

  • Gadget Tribe

    Another whiny white person. They are so typical. They are upset that their President is Black, that their women prefer a Big Black Mandingo, that they are losing ground to Blacks in every arena and now they are regressing to their infantile behavior because they are the weaker race. So they whine, cry, complain and get angry. If you whites worked hard as much as you whined, perhaps you would be successful. But alas, genetically speaking, they are the inferior race. A race that has had its run and is dying out. Whites are so soft, puny, fragile and weak. Ugh. And their pale, pasty complexion is gross. They turn to leather by the time they hit their mid thirties. And they get those brown spots as they age – disgusting. If I were white, I’d be upset, too.

  • jtoe

    Wow, this comment reeks of racism. I mean, assuming I’m white, then claiming that I’m pointing out hypocrisy just because I’m somehow dealing with an inferiority complex due to… my assumed race is weak and dying out? Seriously, the second half of your insane rant about the ‘pale pasty, disgusting complexion’ of white people sounds like Hitler screaming about jews from the reichstag. How revolting.

  • ImmaKillit

    He really is racist but funny nonetheless. You just suppor racist and arent funny even a lil bit. Thats just sad

  • jtoe

    The fact that you think what he said about white people was funny makes you just as much a racist. That’s the truly sad part.

  • ImmaKillit

    Its funny because HES TROLLING YOU. Fuckin dumbass..Ive spent far too much time entertaining you this evening

  • Gadget Tribe

    What do we know about people of color – they are smarter than white people. ImmaKillit proved that he is smarter than you jtoe.

  • Gadget Tribe

    fragile whites and their sympathizers blame everyone but their own incompetence. and then they want a handout from society.

  • Gadget Tribe

    whites and their empathizers love to throw the race card. it’s a way for them to not acknowledge the truth about themselves. they are inferior. they have to connive their way into everything they do. while people of color work hard, lazy whites (who have always been lazy – which is why they used forced labor) scheme and leech off of society. they always want a handout and when they don’t get it, they commit crimes – steal, whine or blame it on racism and Affirmative Action. If they only worked hard and stopped blaming everyone around them. They are so fragile emotionally. this is why they are scared of the black men and try to keep them down.

  • jtoe

    Can I adopt the bag of cats in your head? I mean, they gotta get the hell out of there, or you’re gonna explode.

  • Gadget Tribe

    this is what white people and their sympathizers are reduced to – infantile behavior when they don’t get what they want. so on edge and ready to explode when they don’t have their way. they are entitled, privilege and refuse to formulate logical arguments for what they believe. they go off into in-cohesive rants such as this – which make no sense whatsoever. before long, they will ask for a handout from our hard earned tax dollars.

  • ilegitane

    ROTFLMAO!!!

  • ilegitane

    Tribal Gadget is really a KKK troll trying to start up a race war.

  • Gadget Tribe

    Oh the race card? What do we know about whiny white people and their supporters? They are complainers and whiners. They bring up Hitler (another example of inferior white people who bring destruction to our world) and fail to acknowledge just how weak they are. Whites fear black men and that is why they try to suppress people of color. They know that people of color gave us the good things in our society. Whites only stole them. They are the true thugs. It’s in their DNA. They are lazy and that’s why they forced people to do their labor. They are incompetent. These angry white men are puny and weak. They are the first to pull the race card when people just tell them the truth about themselves. If they would only work hard, stop stealing, thugging, raping, and lying, white people might be semi-contributors to society. rather than being jealous of people of color who excel intellectually, artistically, athletically, and in every other arena. If they only spent time working hard, rather than whine.

  • Karen T.

    Except whitey ain’t trying to suppress you. If black communities kept the drug dealers and gang members from hurting black youth, they might actually get an education and get somewhere. If black fathers stepped up and took care of their children properly, their children wouldn’t be walking around with the stigma of being raised poor in a single mother household. Having children, by itself, does not make you a father. Taking responsibility and doing whatever you can to ensure your child succeeds, that’s a father.

  • Gadget Tribe

    Whiny white people are proving to be very slow, indeed. First of all – ‘doing’ isn’t spelled with a 9. Secondly, here’s an accurate assessment of what the world knows these pale and pasty creatures have done to people of color: We all know that whites are lazy. They don’t like to work hard. We all know that they are thugs and looters. So what do they do? They steal, kill and destroy. They steal land, steal gold, spices, traffic humans to do free labor – because they are lazy! They then bring blacks to a stolen country and have them make and build everything – roads, homes, plantations, buildings, infrastructure, even the white house itself! Because white realize that blacks are bigger, stronger and smarter, they want to ensure that they don’t unite so they split their families up, change their names, forbid them from reading, rape them, and kill them. They place them in chains because they know that they are no match for the blacks. The Haitian Revolution proved that – Napoleon found out the hard way! These weak whites then oppress them once slavery is over and develop systems to keep blacks down economically. The whites who accrued wealth from years of free labor now blame blacks for their poverty and call them lazy (how ironic). Then try to miseducate them because we all know whites are afraid of intelligent black people. They marginalize them in ghettos designed to keep them at the low end in terms of education and resources. When blacks struggle in the school systems that WHITES invented, they are held back, can’t get jobs, families are strained and broken and the natural byproduct is crime (everyone has to eat). Then whites introduce drugs into the neighborhoods and then come in with cameras to reinforce their propaganda that blacks are innately inferior. Now this simpleton of a white woman asks – why are blacks not dealing with the drug dealers so that they may be educated and get somewhere. What do we know about white people? They lie, they destroy families, they play victim, they feel guilty, don’t take responsibility, they believe the hype that THEY actually are where they are because they worked harder. They are the terrorists of the world and the world is beginning to see that and the whiny whites are afraid because they don’t want to imagine a post-white supremacy world. It scares the shit out of them all. The honeymoon is over Karen! Sorry dear. You and your children had your run.

  • Gadget Tribe

    jtoe, I’m fully aware of what I wrote – no need to whine and rehash it to me verbatim. this further proves my point. white people are not very intelligent. this is why we have a black president – the whites were too incompetent.

  • Gadget Tribe

    What do we know about all caucasians? They whine about who is whining. They whine about losing power. They are upset that their President is Black. They are not very intelligent. It’s a scientifically proven fact that due to their lack of melanin, they are intellectually deficient, athletically challenged, age poorly, have unsightly pale, pasty and paltry complexions and are unable to see reality. This is why whiny white people do what they do. They steal because they can not produce things on their own. Just ask India, Africa, the Middle East, the Native Americans, etc. They traffic humans, they are plagued with diseases which were unknown to people of color, they invented weapons of mass destruction, they committed mass genocide, they destroyed our atmosphere, they invented drugs, they use assault rifles to slaughter innocent children and adults in public places, they cut people up, place them into zip-lock bags, freeze them and eat them for lunch, they are terrorists, and the list goes on and on! Out of every race, they are among the most destructive. Then to make matters worse, they distort the history books to make it in their favor. They claim to have ‘discovered’ America and honor the terrorist who killed the indigenous people in the West Indies. They omitted accomplishments of people of color and even altered the world map to have Africa and South America appear smaller than they truly are. The true map (Peters Projection) which gives an accurate scale, proves that Africa is larger than the USA, India, China, Japan, Easter Europe, Spain, France, Portugal, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, UK, Italy, and the Netherlands COMBINED! Whites are afraid that the world will realize that in fact, they are the true world ‘minority’. People of color actually are in the majority and that is why the scared white people had to invent the idea of white supremacy and unleash a propaganda campaign to keep it running. This is also why 94% of the Academy is comprised of whites. They want to keep close tabs on the media because media shapes our perception. And this weak white boy is now whining and trying to use reverse psychology because he is scared that his lilly white America is changing. lol. We know know that whites regress to their infantile stage when they feel threatened and don’t get what they want. They throw tantrums, and whine. They are definitely inferior to every race under the sun. Give them an inch, and they want a mile. Rather than work hard to succeed, they are upset that people of color are advancing and they are losing ground.

When did whites become so pussified, soft, fragile, sissies? What do we know about white people? They are scared of losing power. They are the weaker race. The are whiners and complainers. They don’t want to work hard. They have been lazy ever since the people of color had to build this nation with their bare hands and whites sat down for leisure and sweet tea. White people are inferior because they lack melanin; a scientifically proven chemical in the bloodstream that enhances beauty, intelligence, physical agility, athleticism, creativity, and age. White people are scared and that’s why they go all out to stop people of color from advancing. Weak white people. They weep and have temper tantrums. They have no backbone.

    The black community in the US has suffered as no other has in the history of this country, excepting Native Americans. Past segregation and exclusions will snowball for generations because a segment of the population simply couldn’t leave as much to its children as other segments did. Given that the rate of upwards mobility really isn’t all that high nationwide, it only makes sense that most black families today have ten times less wealth than the average white family.

    where do you get your facts? do you know that there are many more white families living below the poverty line than black families?

  • Elie Challita

    Of course there are more white families living below the poverty line, in total numbers: the country is 70% white.
    The poverty rate, however, is twice as high for black and hispanic families. Meaning, if you’re black you’re twice as likely to be poor as your white neighbor.

  • Edward Newman

    I think alot of people are not even sure what specifically the black community wants. Even the president is half black and was democratically elected. It almost appears as if black people as a whole want to be catapulted to some high status level. Its frustrating when Hispanic and Asian immigrants come here and prosper while black people are claiming to be oppressed and struggling. I dont know that there is anything someone of white race could do to prop the black community out of whatever thing they are trying to escape from.

    Also I see a common trend in black commentary continually referring to people being educated or not educated based on if the person sides with Stacey or not. What difference does that make if the content is powerful, moving and or simply factually correct.

  • ImmaKillit

    No one can answer that because no one person represents the black community. But she speaks as if she knows the plight of black people when shes been fed with silver spoon her whole life. She knows nothing of struggle. Claiming to be oppressed and struggling? Please tell me one time you’ve ever just been walking down the street and were stopped for absolutely nothing or because you fit the description. You couldnt understand the plight of a black man woman or child because youre not black. But im not sure you really would want to know. Because when you say things like “claiming” like there no merit behind it, you clearly dont. Hows that for black commentary?

  • Edward Newman

    I am half Mexican. Had my fair share of racism growing up. But I did not let it hold me down. Looking back it may me stronger because I realize the world is rough and I have to be tough to survive. Even if perhaps the system was against me my father made sure that I would adapt and overcome. Victims are wimps and crybabys or something to that effect he would say.

    Even if the oppression and hate and all the “claimed” things vanished you would still have to do deal with the economy and the daily grind to make ends meet. If there was no economy, then the battle for food/shelter would always be there. Would the black community suddenly prosper if said things went away. If we went to nothing and started from scratch, could the black community keep up? Would they surpass? Would things eventually return to the way they were again? What if reparations were paid out, would that make the black community thrive or would it be a flash in the pan?

    I just don’t think there anything we can do to help you out of your plight that doesn’t require action from the black community as a whole first and like I said. We don’t even know what you actually want. Some of the issues in the black community are brought on by black people.

    You have to be logical every time a new rapper comes out talking about drugs, sex, crime its another drop in the bucket towards proliferating a negative stereotype that black community does not want held over their heads yet simultaneously embraces.

    To claim the success of one race is dependent on another in 2016 is a bit silly and also a double edge sword. If one race can be the downfall of another it would also be safe to say that some races could be the downfall of themselves?

  • ImmaKillit

    The truth is alot of Black communities are infested with self hatred its hard to say that it would change much. Reparations would have helped years back to help black businesses blossom and black schools establish themselves with quality materials and not have to receive second hand outdated books that dont even talk about the hardships black face in history save for free boat rides.

    I have never been in the line of thinking where i wanted a handout or felt like the man was holding me down. I can get my own and anyone trying to make a fast buck obviously will spend that buck as fast as they received it. But I still dont think you understand how growing up black can and has been a hardship for some. I distinguish myself with my work ethic and stay firm in my beliefs. So do even have a chance to establish that dude to where they live and thats sad, If you’re asking me if my people are their own downfall id say yeah we’re tripping over ours selves in more ways than one. But black people dont want a handout contrary to popular belief. We just want fairness. And america aint to big on fair.

  • Question is

    Those same rappers you are talking about are paid by executives that don’t look like them to say those things. They know anything about their struggle they only want to use them to make them money and because the rappers don’t want to be poor they go along with it. It’s simple divide an conquer. Give a few something while taking from the rest. Have you ever heard of Black Wall Street, or the Harlem Renaissance. “Blacks” thrived during these time periods and were doing very well. They owned businesses and kept their dollars in the community just like all of the other groups you mentioned, but guess what, if they kept their dollar in their communities who was going to make money for the other communities. So they were destroyed by drugs (black people didn’t fly that stuff in so guess who brought it in and allowed it to be sold there) and Black Wall Street was destroyed by riots and no the rioters were not black. Have ever noticed how other ethnic groups are allowed to open a lot of businesses in black communities but not so much in white communities. Do you know how hard it is for a black man to get a business loan even with the same credit rating as all the other ethnic groups. Do a google search on that topic and you will see some astounding statistics. The system has been geared to use blacks to make money ever since the first day they instituted slavery. Even Donald Sterling admitted this in a CNN interview. This is why Black History month is important because I bet half of the people reading this would have no idea of the facts that I am stating. Yes I call them facts because they are backed by history and researchers. If you don’t believe me google and the library is your friend.

    The problem here is how people vote, specifically black people. The democrats know they will pull the majority of the black vote, they make their promises and nothing is ever done, because no matter what the results, the black people will blindly vote for them. The republicans on the other hand, knows they will never get close to the majority of black voters, so they don’t even pretend to throw out promises, they just swallow the fact the they will lose that section of the vote. What if I told you to change this cycle, the black people have all the power. IF the black voters voted en mass for the Republicans, first the republicans would sit up and take notice, they would now know that they can win the black vote and will start listening to the needs of those voters. The democrats having just lost the majority of their voters, will also take note and realize that the broken promises will no longer keep people voting for them. This will force both the Republicans and Democrats to pander to the black community more than ever. Sometimes, doing something extreme will break the cycle of routine and flourish into a better result. But hey, voting for Democrats for the past 60+ years has really uplifted your community, so keep on keeping on.

  • Question is

    I’m sorry but deciding to just vote for republicans will not work either. You would trade one master for the other and still receive nothing. The true power would be voting for a third party. This would force the two main parties to really work for the voters instead of ignoring them. I’m sorry but conservatives seem like they could care less about a young black man being gunned down on his way to school and it shouldn’t matter if it was another black man that killed him or a police officer it is an issue that needs to be addressed and frankly conservatives are deaf when it comes to those issues. But let some kid in the suburbs go shoot up a school or theater then all of the prayers and thoughts come out. African Americans will not be just Americans until they are treated by society, political systems, and government as full Americans. You can’t piss on people and expect them to dance in it like its rain. I’m an independent voter. My vote is for the best policies and not platform. If you want to lead a horse you need a carrot and honestly conservatives offer no carrot. Democrats may make false promises and lie but at least they offer something even if its a lie. If conservatives can offer better the door is wide open for them to do so, but right now they are not even walking up to porch.

    I love watching blacks attack Stacey. They just don’t get it and it seems never will. They prove where the REAL racists reside. In the Black Community’s. They are their own worst enemies and I don’t care what color a person is I don’t want to help someone like that. They are a detriment to people of all colors in this world. Not all but a large number in the black community enjoy living in their victim status world and don’t want it to change. Why? Because even they know they can’t make it in the world. It is easier to play the victim then go through the hard work it takes to become a recognized part of a civilization or society. You will be treated as you represent yourself in the world. If you want to be treated like a thug then continue to dress like a thug. If you want to advance yourself in life be a presentable and responsible part of the society you live in.

  • ImmaKillit

    Most blacks dont like any politicians. So the numbers of us that dont vote compared to the ones that do is staggering. The way i see no one claiming to do right by all americans are outright liars. But im just one guy

  • Ross Gage

    I say we are all in this together and if we do not learn how to come together this world will not survive. I don’t care what color someone is. As long as we are all moving the world forward and not keeping it stagnated in the past. Learn from the past but don’t use it to destroy what you have already accomplished. :)

  • Ross Gage

    By the way, it is a FACT that Lyndon Johnson (Democratic President) was quoted as saying “We will have those Ni**ers voting democrat for the next 500 years”. These are the people you vote in to represent your community and still do. Continue to follow Snake Oil Salesman and you will never see a change for yourself in the world.

  • Carl B.

    Stacy, I’ve paid attention to the replies from everyone who have commented on your views about BET, Black History month, and all the other black-focused things. Just like you, most of them make excellent points in their arguments. In being Black, I feel we have to focus on unity and as a people come together. I’m not a fan of BET or most of the things that are Black focused. No, I’m not racist, but I don’t see a need to support something that paints such a stereotypical view on my race like some of the TV shows I see my family members watch and enjoy.

    I’m all about promoting Black people who want change; who don’t look at color but sees everyone, who focus on continual education, who’s embracing creativity, being a part of creating technologies to help our world, who desire to be a CEO or an innovative entrepreneur of some fantastic company. Coming from the poor lifestyle I’ve come from, this is what I fight for and want to see. No, I’m not Democrat, and I have seen how most people who support Democrats have been paralyzed mentally in the poor areas I have lived, more so than help them. I have lived in almost every poor area in my city growing up, and for the most part, I haven’t seen these people get inspired to be a part of something bigger than they are accustom to and aspire to use the resources as a tool to do something greater.

    Stacy, keep voicing your opinion and fight them with knowledge and intellect on the topics you speak on and they will have nothing to say furthermore.

    From your Clueless days when I was a small kid, I still enjoy watching you.

    Be blessed!

  • Jenny95

    When I grew up there was no Black History Month, and the only history taught was about White History. Let’s go back to that?

  • Gadget Tribe

    how about we go back to when you pale colored people were in the mountains eating raw meat and the Natives were safe in their land? Hmmm?

  • Al Bert

    Don’t see you on any boat heading back to your roots to help a continent that is at ruins

  • Gadget Tribe

    Didn’t you read world history, Al? I forgot, whites are not too bright. Ok, ok…I’ll refresh your frail memory: Your ancestors took my ancestors here on a boat. WE. NO. ASK. TO. COME! Does that help refresh your memory? Oh…and your pale pasty people robbed Africa as they did India, The Natives, the Middle Eastern people and everyone that is in their path. So…yeah, now it’s in ruins because of the weak white people who can’t work hard like everyone, but have to loot. golly…read MAN…read!

  • Karen T.

    Maybe you should read your world history, your ancestors sold your other ancestors to be put on a boat. And recent history suggests that it is the American black man who is unable to work hard like everyone else and loot.

  • Gadget Tribe

    Karen is proving to all of us that white people really ARE slow. They are playing the victim and feel attacked by people of color. They suffer from white guilt and believe their own account in history.

In fact, he was a terrorist, murderer, thief, inhumane, vile and repulsive individual. YOUR books say that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass distraction. YOUR books intentionally leave out my Haitian ancestors revolution against you weak white people out of fear. They fail to say that this is what truly led to France’s cheap sale of the Louisiana territory. YOUR books use a false map that makes Africa and South America look tiny in comparison to the rest of the world, when in reality Africa is bigger than The USA, Eastern Europe, China, India, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, UK, Japan, Switzerland, Netherlands, Portugal and Belgium COMBINED! (Look it up, ignoramus). And you want me to TRUST YOUR books when the truth is you trafficked blacks, told people that they were uneducated and no different than animals (which is why you needed to suppress news about the Haitian Revolution)? What a joke! Stop making excuses and lies for your weak race. The world is becoming very aware of how scared and fragile you all really are. Then you will play the race card and say that blacks are getting all the good stuff. Work hard and stop looting, whining and complaining.

  • Terminatah Xray

    There are more whites on public assistance than blacks in America. When whites are “no longer looking for work”, it’s the President’s fault. When blacks are unemployed, it’s their own fault….. Get a clue.

  • Al Bert

    I guess your books don’t go back and tell you that the slaves where sold by the black man.. Or do you block that out to make your argument valid?

  • Al Bert

    So its a no that your books don’t acknowledge the fact that the slaves were sold by members of the tribe?

    Oh and there is no one since the dawn of time from Africa you can figure out how to become economically dependent?

    It looks like the mother land took a play right out of the african american playbook…. they headed north to the white man for a hand out

  • Ronald McNeal

    Not every slave was sold by Africans but we know who bought the majority of slaves to give white slave owners four hundreds of years free labor. And as for us getting back on a boat to help return Africa to what it was or could have been was destroyed by slave masters who took the best and future brightest from Africa. Look at what the former slaves gave to this country, Gen. Colin Powell, President Obama, Thrugood Marshall, black inventors who invented the elevator, the gas mask, and so many other things that white folks have no clue about because they don’t know anything about black history.

  • Terminatah Xray

    yes, the tribes were put against each other by the white man installing fear and strife. Whites capitalized on that division to their own benefit, and to even sell weapons.
    Sound familiar?

  • Al Bert

    Yes, much like Chicago today right?

  • Al Bert

    So in that argument in the history of mankind no one in Africa can figure out how to become economically independent? The are no African decent anywhere in the world…anywhere that can go back and make Africa self sufficient?

  • Gadget Tribe

    Wow – we are finding that these whiny white people are EXTREMELY slow, aren’t we. Okay, Al – since you are just like all of the other white people I know and have trouble learning, I’ll be patient with you. Africans actually paved the way for modern civilization. Even Rome looked to her in its heyday. Cleopatra was African (not a pale, paltry hideous white woman like Elizabeth Taylor). The Pharaoh’s were African. Even now, you uneducated white people are trying to figure out how the Africans invented the technology that included the ability to build large construction projects such as pyramids and palaces, simple machines such as ramps and levers, and a complex system of government and religion. One of the most important inventions of the Ancient Egyptians was WRITING. They wrote in hieroglyphics. We were economically wealthy and undefended. All nations including the pale inferior whites came to our borders for trade. We were THE superpower and were gracious to you white people. Our commodities of gold, silver, spices, grains, linen, tint were known throughout the known world. We invented the chariot and the bow and arrow. We perfected jewelry, sports, toys, fashion – basically everything you can think of. The arts are other things that you whites envy about us. Africa is lush with resources, but lo – when the pale white and pasty people who are the only race cursed with no pigmentation and melanin came, they envied Africans and were looters, thieves, oppressors. Its in their nature because they can to none else. They will do everything to convince the world that the Egyptians were not African to their own detriment. To answer your stupid question about going back – nah! We have plenty of our people in Africa holding it down. We figured that since we build the roads, homes, cities, white house and pretty much everything in America (because we all know that whites are sloths, lazy and unable to work. they also are weak and can’t do much heavy lifting save to lift sweet tea to their mouths) we will stay and keep the things that we built – share it with the Natives and other people of color, take over the government (going to plan so far – We have a President – you don’t) and put you whiny whites on boats in chains and send you back to your puny Europe. Wow – it sure takes a lot of energy to have to teach a white boy what he should have worked hard to have learned. Stop playing the victim Al and go back to Europe and make a livelihood.

  • Al Bert

    Ok so the answer is NO. And again Africa the motherland is a hole. Don’t worry they will all get beat back from Europe to Africa.

    Your boy is one of the worst presidents in history… it will never happen again.

    I will wake up tomorrow and be well off…can’t say that about of people..tribe

  • AirborneGrandDaddy

    You were sold by your own cousins fella, get it straight like those that wanted to have “good hair” and maybe someone might just listen to your drivel…. BTW The slave was sold by a black man in Africa, put on a ship manned by Spanish sailors and then dropped off and sold by whomever had MONEY to do such… Thus many whites never owned slaves, but I bet your democrat party houses many names in its past that did…. now go suck an egg

  • Terminatah Xray

    thanks to the United State and England. Leave the Pandora’s box closed, you won’t like what’s inside….

    And in Georgia, they are sitll overwhelmingly teaching white history. It’s as if blacks don’t even exist in, or contribute anything to/in America.

  • ConciousSoul

    First every so called “black” person needs to take a step back and ask themselves what is the phrase “black” person even referring to? why do we call ourselves “black or African American” people. when you say you are black what does that even really mean? To describe someone as a black person doesn’t even attach ANY ethnicity or nationality to them! You don’t hear “black” people that are from Africa calling themselves black. They refer to themselves from the region they are from. (ex Nigerian, Egyptian, Kenyan) The term African American only came into the US census in 2006. its not even a term that is used internationally. The identity of the “black” culture has been suppressed for so many years that people don’t even know their own ancestry or anything about the true past of ‘black” people. When someone asks you what are you and you say black you are basically telling them that you are a color and that you have no knowledge of who or where you actually came from. It starts with the language and how we address ourselves. So called black people need to read more to find out the truth about their past and history, because the trust is not in black history month or any history books for that matter! Wake up people NOBODY is just black! Ask your self what is your nationality? Which is most likely Moorish American…Look it up

    I could go into but it would take so much more than this paragraph so please do some research people

  • ThroughDifferentEyes

    “you are basically telling them …that you have no knowledge of who or where you actually came from” – and whose fault is that? Aside from the Moors, the Israelites and the people already here – how many “breeding grounds/sex farms” were there in America?

    History shows us (once you dig) that there were hundreds of thousands of people from South America and African nations brought to North America. They were stripped of everything – language, culture, family and eventually – their DNA. No one talks about how ugly it was. Blacks are the lost people – so they’ve made their own. (I’m only half included in this discussion as my Mothers side has her history intact) Hate it all you want, but it’s not going away. Yes, we are Black Americans because many of us were in fact – “made” in America.

  • Terminatah Xray

    We get it, YOU are confused. I’m not. Good luck with that…..

  • Terminatah Xray

    Her comments about ending black history for one. Everyone in America is taught white history as if it was the standard. She has no problem with that. Second stupid thing she said: That blacks are supporting segregation by having black organizations. All of these black organizations employ, and award whites. Minorities create organizations because the mainstream culture doesn’t embrace or accept their culture/history. She’s simply another sub-intelligent hollywood celebrity with a bullhorn, that is woefully out of touch with reality. Only difference here is she is a Republican. And if you asked her what being a Republican is, I doubt she even knows……

  • Azaleafox

    Stacey Dash has a point, but only on negative stereotypes that is still plaguing some of us. On the other hand, this didn’t help with integration, this whole blog post was…not impactful. I think we need to focus on educating those who are not educated, and promoting free thinking and independency. If anyone haven’t noticed yet, the educated blacks disproved stereotypes and are extremely successful people.
    I do believe the Democrats are making uninformed blacks more dependent on them for votes, and unfortunately some Republicans are uninformed, and over privileged.

  • Terminatah Xray

    The Democrats aren’t “making” any blacks more dependent any more than Republican media are “making” whites more racist. Lazy minded people fall victim to bad information. Dash is evidence that you can be beautiful, wealthy, educated, but still be dumb as a bag of broken bricks……about about individual choice, plain and simple.

  • Azaleafox

    im not denying that, but I do believe that Democrats feed upon poor uniformed black people and republicans cater to prejudice, privileged whites. Democrats are known for giving the “care package” a bundled of promises to poor blacks living in slums saying we aren’t going to cut your welfare, we should increase it. Knowing half those on welfare know it is much more sustainable to be on welfare than to get a job. It’s the ugly truth, we live in a capitalist society where it is not easy to to get to the top, unless you are already there. There are some people who are not willing to get out of this comfort zone and venture to success. As long as you feed them, you keep them happy.

    how can you call Bet and other black entertainment culture segregating into a little enclave of society? I would assume BET is equivalent to CMT?

  • John Sanderson

    Well, I think the difference is that CMT doesn’t present itself as a White Person channel, while BET promotes itself as a Black Person Channel. I believe that’s the point that shes getting at.

  • kunta kente’

    neither does BET its not a black person station, but black entertainment. Meaning the majority of things on the station is for people interested in watching entertainment from people of color. Click through the tv channels 9 times out of 10 its a white person face on the screen. Just as CMT is for people who want to be entertained my country music.

  • John Sanderson

    I understand that, but taken at face value having Black in its Station name puts off the thought that its a network by black people, for black people, and that’s where most people start, and stop when they see BET. I think the majority of the confusion just comes by name. I personally never looked at it that way, as in the early 2000’s my TV stayed between MTV, and BET for the top 10’s, and late night for BET Uncut. That was back when I listened to hip hop. Not so much now

  • Terminatah Xray

  • Bigger_Mike

    Actually no BET does not promote itself as a Black Person Channel. Far from it. It’s owned by Viacom, a very WHITE company. It’s programming is geared towards Black people, but not exclusively. Just like CMT is geared towards Country Music people, but not exclusively. And the point that she tried to make is a ridiculous one since she has profited off media that was geared towards Black audiences. If she didn’t have that, she wouldn’t have a career in the first place.

  • http://livingsamsara.com/ LivingSamsara

    I appreciate your thoughts. Some people are self-identified (or other-identified) by their color (or gender, sexuality, religion or weight or whatever label has been downtrodden). We’re all Self, first. I am Self, before any label, yes.

    “It could be that I am congratulated for being an “independent thinker.”
    But apparently only white people can do that, at least according to
    the arbiters of blackness.”

    Society (life, certain people or groups) may try to castigate me based on how I look or I may try to victimize or separate myself based on my castigation, but if my “Self Thought” rises above it and others who share my ‘label’ are annoyed, that might tell me they still primarily identify w/ their label. And that’s theirs to work out or not.

  • shawn

    So i came here with an open mind hoping to hear her reasoning on the comments she made. I’m so disappointing to see that as opposed to speaking from within she chose to go the political route. I’even more disgusted with her comments now than i was before i decided to read this article. She tries her best to show how educated black people are considered White by the black community yet we consider old white men who eat fast food and grew up poor to be black. It’s funny how she points out that Clerance Thomas was once associated with the black panthers” LOL… he showed support for them as did just about every black person back then as it was an outlet for them to vent their anger. Oh and this poor white kid that grew up loving fast food was actually the president of the UNITED States. bad choice to consider him black? LOL…. Lets face it the Oscars often nominate movies that make most of us scratch our heads… to go 2 years with not even a nominee is too much of a coincidence for me and now with this “uproar” they will save face and make a few changes to appease the masses, any black nominee from this point on will now come with an asterisk, they only got nominated because of the boycott.

  • bkp100

    You’re correct in that every black nomination will now come with a question mark. Was it merit, or just another affirmative action program? That’s their own doing. And, it will only serve to diminish the award in the long run.
    As for Dash’s comments, of *course* they’re political. You can’t enter this particular fray of political correctness, you can’t discuss racial perspectives, and you certainly can’t back the “different color horse,” *without* it actually being, or perceived as being, political.
    Meanwhile, you give her *zero* credit for putting up with the hate mail, and hate tweets, from most of the liberal community (wait a minute… only the right can be haters, right?), in her effort to say “hold on, the left isn’t exactly exempt from culpability in these problems.”
    Dash’s examples of Thomas and Clinton are *just* examples. It has also applied to Tim Scott, Allen West, Alan Keyes, Condi Rice, Herman Kane, most recently Ben Carson, on and on. All referred to, at one time or another as Toms, slaves, puppets, racists, fascists, etc, by the left. She certainly wasn’t pointing out how “educated” black people are considered white, but rather how black *conservatives* are automatically considered white. Clinton is a liberal who supports progressive democratic principles. 95% of the black community voted democratic in the last election. Do you not see the *political* connection?
    This *is* about ideology. You can’t separate that out of the mix, and it largely defines all of our perspectives…

  • shawn

    Very well said… I think…. but to place her views on politics when it comes to this matter is nothing more than a farce… it is not by choice that most “black” people are in the middle class, lets be fair whites had a huge lead in that race (pun intended). I want to see her point, i’d like to assume that what she really is trying to get across is (why are we as black people separating ourselves from all other ethnicity?) I would hope that an educated woman as she is being labeled by the herself and the right wing, she should be able to articulate herself clearly. We “should” all be considered equals… but that’s not the case. The Bet Award show was created to honor Black people for their accomplishments. Think about this.. everyone is in an uproar because of no black nominees in the last two years…. However in the history of the Academy Awards (88 of them) only 30 awards have gone to African Americans. This is out of a possible rough count of 2000 awards…. This means that roughly only 1.5% of the awards handed out went to African Americans. Hence the need to honor our own. As for Black History Month… if this didn’t exist our younger generation today would have no clue about their ancestors other than what’s published in the “history”books thought at schools… And let’s face it how much did you actually learn about black history in school? here are some examples; Mcgraw Hill was recently called out by a parent in Texas for listing SLAVES as “Immigrants”. They have since apologized and promise that any reprint of the book will be corrected and the online version of the book will be corrected as well. Today i found out that a Scholastic book was published portraying slaves as happy servants.. So you tell me sir… how do we educate our younger generation and honor our people without “ruffling” any feathers? leave it to the Republicans? yeah in Donald Trump I DON”T TRUST.

  • Terminatah Xray

    Stacey is very proficient at attacking blacks to the point of accusing us of being segregationists to score political points. Pathetic. But Stacey makes no mention of the overt and persistent bias in Pro-white America. She has no understanding how all minorities in America have had an uphill battle whereas white privilege continues to flourish. Stacey completely ignores white-only sectors in our society. when you read her words, she has no self pride or self worth; sees no beauty in beling black. That is the worst part of all; her self-hatred.

  • Steve

    There is no beauty in being black. There is no beauty in being white. There is no beauty in being hispanic. There is no beauty in being asian. There is, however, beauty in being a human being. That’s the point she’s trying to make.

    The only way this problem is solved is to forget that race even exists, but minorities are determined to not let that happen. Whites forgot about it long ago.

    you are an idiot– do you think jews think that, asians or indians? these ethnic groups are successful because they stick together, believe in themselves, and that they are better than anybody else. But you want blacks to subscribe to we are all just humans. hahahaha!

  • Xplo

    So sad…..I have read all the statements here and facebook and also listened to some of the news and radio comments. Not everyone will agree but it is sad how nasty it has gotten. Reminds me of a cop joke….traffic accident on the road..10 witnesses….5 said he came from the left and 5 said he came from the right…who is correct?? all of them….just a matter of perspective. Everyone has an opinion and there is no need to call them stupid or any other names because you do not agree. I try to see other peoples side of things even though I may not agree with them. I figure she was just saying that after fighting to be equal then it should be the same across the board for everyone. She thinks there should be no BET or Black History month because it does not speak to equality. That is her opinion. Maybe as far as other people are concerned it still is not equal. Maybe there is a BET because most entertainment is still mostly ‘white’ oriented as far as they see it and it was felt that there was a need to have something just for ‘blacks’, maybe history that is taught in educational facilities is still predominately ‘white’ so the ‘Black’ history month is there to educate the masses and try to make ‘black’ history known. So we have 2 sides. Wait….aren’t we forgetting something…. what about the Indians, Mexicans, Chinese, etc, do they have separate tv stations and history months….wow this could go on for ever. I know, here’s a thought….lets agree to disagree.

  • Samuel

    I agree, Xplo. [We] are quick to condemn each other for our opinions but STILL want to be respected for our own.

  • Samuel

    You are NOT ALONE in how you feel, Stacy. Whether we agree or disagree with her views, she is entitled to her opinions. We are SO QUICK to judge and make mean comments. We ASK for what we aren’t willing to give. We EXPECT to be treated respectfully, then we BLATANTLY disrespect each other. We SAY we want change (for the better) but we conduct ourselves in a manner that is contradictory to what we SAY we’re fighting for. BE RESPECTFUL!

  • UdonNo

    BUT what has she done for black advancement?? i will wait…

  • UdonNo

    THANK YOU.

  • http://thechive.com Patrick Swayze

    dude why do you keep saying that? Did you read the article or just jump to the comments? The entire article is about what she is trying to do for black advancement. What have you done?

  • UdonNo

    TALKING OUT HER ASS IS NOT DOING. IF SHE REALLY WANTED TO HELP SHE WOULDNT BE ON FOX A STATION THAT HISTORICALLY SPEAKS AGAINST BLACK ISSUES.
    HAS SHE GONE TO BLACK UNIVERSITIES? HAS SHE CREATED ANY NATIONAL FUND RAISING ORGANIZATIONS FOR BLACK ISSUES? NO.

    AGAIN YOU’RE AN IDIOT.

  • http://thechive.com Patrick Swayze

    Typing everything in caps doesn’t make it more true. Clearly you are desperate if you have to resort to name calling. What she is addressing is a black issue. Like I said what have you done? I’ll wait …

  • UdonNo

    IM NOT BLACK AND IM NOT ON TV. But its not rocket science to figure out Fox is not the first station that comes to mind for support of black and minority issues. She is a joke. She understands that you can make good money by saying what whites want to hear. Kudos to her as a business woman.

  • Bigger_Mike

    You’re absolutely right. Nothing.

  • Kareem Rashad

    All i have to say is this. If she was true then she would’ve never profited off of the so-called segregation that she is now railing against.

  • Just a thought

    First off not all black people are poor and live the ghetto. I was not born nor have I as a black person ever lived in the ghetto. I vote democrat not because of so called “hand outs” but because I believe in a woman’s right to choose, I believe in equal pay for woman, I believe that war is not necessarily the answer. So to say that black people vote democrat because of so-called handouts is just a flat out lie. As far as BET is concerned, it is owned by Viacom. The U.S. has historically tried to keep black people down. Not some black whinning thing, that is fact up to and including Jim Crow. So first I think Ms. Dash needs a history lesson, maybe she can do it during black history month.

    I believe that Ms. Dash has a right to her opinion but I find it interesting that instead of trying to have a dialogue she feels the need to put do blacks who don’t agree with her and then complain when others put her down.

    We she starts to complain about the separation of white institutions such as Jewish organizations, Spanish language television, Daughters of the confederacy, etc. then we can have a dialogue.

  • mike ferland

    Agree with the lack of thinking in this world. In the worlds top selling book, humans are commonly compared to sheep for good reason. Fact based reasoning is rare and living by feelings is all the rage now.

  • Barrison Hughes

    What book is that, Fifty Shades of Grey? I knew you were into kink, Mike.

  • ByronEllis

    She is confused claiming that the civil rights, a group endeavor for black rights, is won and also claiming that freedom is seized by individuals. She has no understanding of institutionalized racism, Jim Crow laws and enslavement. American racism and segregation are not black inventions; they are inherently white. It is not blacks that designed and implemented segregation. Anyone can be a thinker, but not every thinker is rational and her though process appears to be convoluted.

    Furthermore, to claim that living off the government emasculates, demoralize and demeans blacks without ccontrasting and comparing the same effects on millions of whites, rich and poor, that live of the government ls deceitful. There are more poor whites living off the government, particularly in the South than blacks. Additionally, government funding of corporate welfare eclipses funding of the poor.

    Today, even highly educated blacks find barriers in employment, in obtaining loans, in accessing higher education, etc. These barriers are not due to black self- segregation, they are primarily to tie white self-segregation.

  • Steve

    This is phenomenal. Thank you Stacy.

  • drewsco

    I find it interesting how Ms. Dash doesn’t refute criticism against her comment on it’s merits, instead she pivots and criticizes and makes generalizations about those who criticize her.

    For example, she ignores the fact that members of the Academy of Motion Pictures and Science-the organization that nominates candidates for the Oscar-are mostly White men over the age of 50.

    In fact, According to a February 2012 study conducted by the Los Angeles Times (sampling over 5,000 of its 5,765 members), the Academy at that time was 94% white, 77% male, 86% age 50 or older, and had a median age of 62. A third of members were previous winners or nominees of Academy Awards themselves. Of the academy’s 43-member board of governors, only six were female; Cheryl Boone Isaacs was the sole person of color on the board.

    So for her to ignore that important aspect and simply claim that the Oscar nomination process is bias free is disingenuous.
    This is why we’re calling her out, not because of what she’s saying, it’s what’s she’s not saying that’s troubling.

  • rubber stamp

    The Left doesn’t criticize, it spews libels on everyone who left their plantation. e Left never argues, it attacks.

  • Ronald McNeal

    We need Blacks like Stacy Dash so we won’t ever forget there are Blacks like her and others who think being Black is a disease. She doesn’t realize why or how BET, Black History Month, Black Miss America or whatever has her upset with being Black. BET and other Black venues were started when Blacks were not allowed on other public venues, Black history month was created so we Blacks would know “OUR” history. Recently a school book was published stating slaves were immigrants. This book was supposed to hide the facts of slavery, black history month s a reminder that things weren’t always they way they are today. We still have hateful white folks in the USA, kkk, aryan nation, phony militias and the list is endless. So to stacy dash just keep believing we blacks don’t deserve what so many fought and died in America so you can have your views and I seriously doubt if Whoopi is shaking in her boots because of your views.

  • Bill_Fan

    She makes a great point in that in Democrat (liberal) controlled precincts, blacks are struggling.
    Baltimore? Chicago? Hollywood?
    Maybe it’s time for blacks to throw off the chains of liberalism? They keep telling you they have your back, then they screw you.

  • Hansy Peguero

    Because blacks are doing so great in Republican controlled states??
    Wisconsin is the worst state in the country for black Americans. The
    median annual income of black households in the state is just $26,053,
    much lower than the median for black families nationwide and equal to
    just 46.5% the median income of white Wisconsin households of $56,083.
    Similarly, while 29.9% of white adults in Wisconsin have at least a
    bachelor’s degree, 12.8% of black adults in the state have completed
    college. This is also much lower than the bachelor degree attainment
    rate among black adults nationwide of 19.7%. Of all the racial
    disparities found in Wisconsin, the unemployment gap between black and
    white state residents is perhaps the most troubling. With a white
    jobless rate of 4.4%, the state’s job market is relatively strong for
    the white population. For black Wisconsin residents, however, the
    unemployment rate is more than five times higher times higher, at 20.8%
    — the highest among black populations in every other state.

  • Enlightened

    AMAZING! stop labeling everything black and white! that was her point! Should we get brown, red and white stuff going?? You know what’s most ignorant about a large part of the black community, is they don’t listen to those in the black community that reach a higher intelligence and social understanding. I see a few black celebrities that get it, try and change the culture to be more friendly with other races and less labels; but large part of the black community so ignorant they bash other blacks that are actually saying the right thing, just because it does not fit with their stubborn stance. Join humanity, get out of history and skin color labels. Well Said Stacey Dash. Humanity’s future supports you.

  • ThroughDifferentEyes

    LOL – Whatever. You’re still not getting it either. Until people are treated equally – no one is going to give up a way of identifying themselves to their fellow kin and community. What’s hilarious to me is – I dare you to tell Puerto Ricans or Italians-Americans to stop identifying themselves as such. It’s Heritage. So why is everyone so quick to tell Black people – (Made in America) – to stop labeling themselves? If we like it, it’s ours. We made it into something that moves – it grows and it’s diverse. It means we come from the ether. I find it comforting – because it’s already all encompassing.

    Yes, one day we will identify as human-beings and human-beings alone – but until then – (like 500 years from now – maybe?) We are what we are – and we are Black (Multi-cultural/Multi-lingual/Diverse/Intertwined in the fabrics of our country) Americans.

  • ThroughDifferentEyes

    White should bounce before Black. #trailblazers If it’s not such a big deal – let them start! #StopCallingYourselfWhite #StopBeingWhite – how about those hashtags?

  • http://thechive.com Patrick Swayze

    “white” isn’t a culture. Neither is “black” for that matter. American however is. And if you think America is racist please go to Europe or South America.

  • ThroughDifferentEyes

    Uhhh – White America is absolutely a culture within itself as is Black Culture – you better wake up or be left behind. No hand holding this century babyboy

  • http://thechive.com Patrick Swayze

    no it isn’t. you need to pull your head out. My best friend since 1st grade is black. All of my friends growing up are black except me and 2 other guys. We listened to hip hop and metal. We had free style battles and went skate boarding. This separatist nonsense is brainwashing. We are exactly the same people!!! If no one pointed out our differences they’re wouldn’t be any!!!

  • ThroughDifferentEyes

    “Patrick” calm down already. Yes it is.

    If you visited Europe they have their own ideas of what being American (Black and White) means. As did Trevor Noah when he came from South Africa. There is a pop culture when it comes to America. Why is that so hard for you to understand. Why is this a “bad thing?’ We were made different – enjoy the differences – even the subtle ones.

    Look, I get it – it’s frustrating because it feels so dire that we all have to be alike to get along – have you seen twins? Triplets? Come on. NYC would be terribly boring if everyone behaved and looked alike.

    Just because we mesh doesn’t mean the “culture” isn’t unique. That’s like saying all music is the same and has the same effect on the soul: “just notes on a page.” But that’s not true at all – For example: classical; inside classical there is baroque, renaissance, modern etc. There’s jazz, hip hop, rap, poetic rap, all kinds – it’s all music and many would consider their “brand” the best. It doesn’t make it true, but it doesn’t mean that music isn’t beautiful in its own right – that it was created through the imagination of a fellow man. But give credit where credit is due. We are different and it’s a beautiful thing!

    It turns into a problem when people want to say ONLY classical music is best, ONLY Jazz is takes talent. (and when people who control the media limit one over the other because they don’t agree with what makes good music)

    Yes, It’s all beautiful as music – but it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t appreciate the culture each gives us. And we should have an opportunity to enjoy and appreciate ALL types of music – not just what we’re told to enjoy more….

  • http://thechive.com Patrick Swayze

    We weren’t made different we evolved based on geographic location. You wrote all that and still missed the point. The point isn’t that we should identify ourselves with a “culture” to celebrate our differences. The point is that we shouldn’t identify ourselves with a “culture” to reaffirm our differences. So since I’m being left behind by thinking we should look past our differences and strive for a common “culture” aka hybrid music, please enlighten me on what White American and Black American culture is?

  • ThroughDifferentEyes

    Oh my god, you’re all over the place. I have no desire to enlighten you on something you could simply learn on your own. This conversation is exhausting and seeing as how you are a stranger with a fake name, has no benefit to me whatsoever. Maybe someone else – good luck.

  • http://thechive.com Patrick Swayze

    No, you are rambling trying to make a rebuttal to a point I didn’t make. You got lost when I tried to pull you back on topic, became frustrated and blamed me for it. I’m sorry simple conversation is exhausting to you. Also you never answered my question.

  • Bigger_Mike

    I’ll GLADLY enlighten you. If you go to church, does your church practice the same customs as another church? Do you eat the same foods or are there traditions that your family practices? Family traditions are CULTURE. And they are different depending on your specific nationality, ethnicity, or religion. Do you get it now?

  • Bigger_Mike

    Just because you did the same things and like the same things as your friends doesn’t mean that there is only one culture. Because I’m SURE that when your Black friend was with his parents or grandparents, they practiced their CULTURE, just like I’m SURE that when you with your parents and grandparents that you practiced YOUR culture.

  • ThroughDifferentEyes

    you may want to reread what you typed.. its not to bright. You can re comment if you like.

  • http://thechive.com Patrick Swayze

    I think you meant *it’s not *too bright? I know, grammar is a son-of-a-bitch. Now what was that about me not being too bright? Can you tell me what white and black culture is and what the differences are? I need to see which of these 2 groups I fall into if we’re going to be so … black and white about everything (pun intended).

  • Basil Malik

    the grammar thing is something you do when you can’t answer the question. THe brain is amazing, with its cognitive skills and all. It distinguished between the too and forwarded the correct info to you before you even noticed it was incorrect. It was the inability to answer the question that lead you to look for the error. I have no problem with making a grammatical error. I’m human and I know what culture is.

  • http://thechive.com Patrick Swayze

    wow. First of all you didn’t ask me a question. Second, the grammar thing is something you do when you know how to write properly. Thirdly you started talking about grammar instead of answering my question, so …

  • Basil Malik

    No actually, you answered my question with a question. Not an indication of superior intellect especially considering the effort you put into building yourself up over a typo. BUt thats what folk like you have to do, right?

  • http://thechive.com Patrick Swayze

    haha! This is hilarious! What was your question?

  • Basil Malik

    and you’re right. I didnt ask you a question. Hey I’m busy. But I am amazed by your grammatical prowess and inability to discern the meaning of culture. I mean what gives?

    Maybe you’re a grammatical savant.

  • http://thechive.com Patrick Swayze

    Hey you actually asked a question that time! Nice going! Why are you so obsessed with talking about grammar anyway?

  • Basil Malik

    You went out of your way to draw attention to the missing “o” in my comment as if I don’t know any better. That’s a typical reaction when someone lacks confidence in their argument.

  • Bigger_Mike

    Um, actually, Black is a culture. Black Americans have their own unique culture. Just like many White Americans of different nationalities, ethnicities, and religions have their own culture (take your pick)

  • UdonNo

    its amazing that blacks are the only ones who preach this,, dont look at skin color bs!. All other ethnic groups that are achieving success as a race in America: jewish, Asian, Indian, –do the exact OPPOSITE of what Stacey preaches. They know that racial success lies in the narrow focus on their own race, they believe in staying together, marrying their own kind, supporting their own kind, taking action together, and have no problems with segregating themselves — jews and asians have their own neighborhoods in NY, but yet no one is saying they need to integrate lol. Jewish neighborhoods never have to worry about gentrification– why? because they control their environment. Stacey somehow cant see this, o better yet she doesnt want blacks to achieve this type of solidarity and power.

  • Hansy Peguero

    Well I don’t see other races trying to be more friendly to black people, Then why in the hell should black people bend over backwards to make others comfortable?? This ish right here is why I can’t stand some white people. There are more people of color in this planet than white people but you think you are the center of the whole universe. You were the ones who enslaved and killed millions of people of color. Why the hell should we be kissing your asses?? And really funny that you are now complaining about labels, when those labels where put in place by WHITE PEOPLE.

  • ThroughDifferentEyes

    Ms. Dash – you came close, but for some reason you keep missing the point.

    1) We didn’t “win” the Civil Rights movement. If history was taught properly in school, one would be able to deduce that Malcolm X and MLK Jr. had more planned – but they were murdered.

    2) Yes on Democrats – No on Liberals. Stop using “liberal” as a bad word. Its not, and we just look like idiots to the rest of the world.(I’m a moderate BTW)

    3) We didn’t segregate ourselves intentionally: we didn’t ask for “separate but equal” to destroy businesses and lose masses of Black money for families that were never even slaves/descendants of slaves but felt the weight of this new law.
    ~Years of lynching – you want to say is the past, but it’s not the past – it’s HISTORY. And if it’s not taught, it’s not learned
    ~Anything “Black” or “Negro” was started by well-meaning White folks or Black people who were tired of being told “no.” How many more years did you expect people to wait? And then to be invited to the table to just be mocked, teased, or laughed at – seriously? So we set our own table, but now WE’RE the segregationists? Bullsh!t.

    I love my family – both White and Black, but when asked in a room filled with people – Ms. Jane Elliott asked – “If you as a white person would be happy to receive the same treatment that our black citizens do in this society – please stand!” Guess what Ms. Dash – no one did. – And that’s even with YOU, Denzel Washington, Tyrese Gibson, Oprah Winfrey, Michael Jordan and more on the table.

    So before you go judging Black people for picking themselves by their bootstraps – that they made from scratch – from cow to leather baby!;
    Before you demand that we stand as one country vs as a people and only accept crumbs, when WE could bake our own bread;
    Before you chastise a person who stands up and says MY CHILDREN NEED CLEAN WATER and is ignored for a year by the tv station you currently work for;

    ..just realize – NO ONE CARES about our sell-outs except “certain” White people who can say “See!!! I told you!”

    People like you, got so many Black AND White people murdered in the past – that it makes sense that YOU would want BHM to be over with before the REAL TRUTHS start getting discussed – with no holds barred, no more sugar coating Ms. Dash.

    Black people – who don’t know their “origins” – are more intertwined into the American fabric than ANY immigrant. We were “MADE” here – and THUS – deserve to make it our own – BY ANY means necessary – even if that means ON OUR OWN. #notsorry

    Italians did it, Polish did it, Danish did it, Germans did it, Koreans did it, Chinese did it – but Black people want to do it and HOLY HELL!!

    And as far as your “handouts” go – are you crazy? Those are hand-ups, after how many years of being kicked down. I don’t like it either but how many people got their 40 acres and a mule? Reparations? After the World Wars – how many didn’t get homes through the VA or medical care? (See now I’m about to lose my **** because now we’re talking about people who fought and died for this country…. – I’m going to just stop and leave it there.

    You need to wake up a little more – spread those focals a little broader and do the work of not trying to find the answers to YOUR questions, but the answer to the only question that matters, which is: Why?

  • rubber stamp

    Put your blame squarely on the Democrat Party, who uses you to stay in power while keeping you poor and disoriented so you beg for more help and protection by the White Liberal elites. It’s called Stockholm syndrome – or capture-bonding, is a psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings toward their captors, sometimes to the point of defending and identifying with the captors..

  • ThroughDifferentEyes

    You assume much Rubber Stamp – I’m not on the Democratic party lines – Nor am I a Republican. I don’t beg and I’m not poor – how did you get such an ignorant response together? The only thing that makes sense is: “It’s called Stockholm syndrome – or capture-bonding, is a psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings toward their captors, sometimes to the point of defending and identifying with the captors..” But I think you should be looking into a mirror when you say that.

  • rubber stamp

    So tell me, Chicago, other major cities run by Democrats. Not one single Republican runs Chicago. All far left loons. 50 years – same body count, same poverty, Democrats even think Blacks are not capable of obtaining state ID to cast a vote like all of us do for years now. Do you feel a little bit humiliated by Dems for spreading such vile notion that Blacks are THAT stupid and incapable as for to get an ID?

    Actually america has been hell bent on under educating and keeping blacks poor, even going as far as murdering and stealing from those blacks they felt were doing to well.

    you ignorant anonymous coward calling names under the veil of your kkk keyboard. First off stupid, most in america never had to provide id to cast votes. The argument isnt/wasnt their too stupid. The issue is the elderly who dont have access to their birth certificates or the poor who can’t afford to pay the vote tax.
    Only cowards, and you are a coward, would want to tilt the scales of democracy by limiting voting to win elections. .
    Only bitches, and you are a bitch would then gloat about it like it was portrait of courage.

  • rubber stamp

    What vote tax? what birth certificate? You little pig don’t even know there is non of that. To get an ID, just show two or so bills, like electric and electric and phone with your name, that’s it. Mostly you won’t be charged if you are retired and poor. So, here we go, you work hard to hide the fact KKK are Democrats, where Republicans saved blacks from KKK on may occasions.

  • Basil Malik

    you dumb ignorant internet coward. Not one repugnant fetid voter id bill allowed for the showing of utility bills, not one. That is what the fuss was about stupid. But you’re too dumb to know what bills you’re supporting. I suggest you put the computer down on the other side of the trailer and you read a book .
    I don’t have to work hard to hide facts that weren’t even a part of the conversation. You see what you just did. I call it Bigot turrets syndrome. Its when a low information bigot has their bigot talking points and shout’s them out where they don’t belong. But just to show you how silly your logic is, the kkk was made up of whites of both political parties, infact the only common theme in all kkk members was/is that they are christian.

What’s the matter stupid, is your party WORRIED about losing another election. Or are you just mad that everytime one tries to restrict someone from voting, a court smacks you in the face. Is that the problem? What is it immigrant?

  • Hansy Peguero

    What has the modern Republican party done for black people? I’ll wait…

  • rubber stamp

    What has Democrat Party done for black people on Chicago South Side? At what point Black people start following words like “Ask not what country can do for you, but what you can do for your country?” . Republicans with Lincoln (R) fought South to free slaves, voted for disorganization when Democrats voted for it. KKK was organized by devout Democrats of the South. Wake up, you were lied to by Democrats who the real enemy to Black people is – and that is Democrat Party.

  • ThroughDifferentEyes

    Most red states are in the deepest amount of debt to the American people – but feel free to continue talking about stuff from 65+ years ago.There was a great shift in the political arena…. The Dixiecrats are the New Republican party.

  • rubber stamp

    All blue states and blue cities filing for bankruptcy, Detroit is one example run down to the ground by Democrats.

  • ThroughDifferentEyes

    LOL!!! Check your sources “rubber stamp” (lol!)

  • rubber stamp

    Cook County and Chicago on the verge of bankruptcy. If you will deny it, you should work for KKK as their mouth pcs.

  • Bigger_Mike

    Really. All Blue States?? Some of the poorest and most uneducated states are RED. Do you really want to go here?

  • rubber stamp

    Go there, literally. You are quick to dismiss Chicago South Side. Lets go there, will you go there?

  • Bigger_Mike

    Dumb Ass, I didn’t ”dismiss” anything. But we can pull up PLENTY of piss poor mismanaged towns and cities in Red States. Want to harp on Chicago and Detroit do so. We’ll focus on ENTIRE states like Mississippi and Alabama. Still want to play here?

  • rubber stamp

    Lets talk about South Side Chicago with 40 shot folks every weekend. No other community has it. Don’t give up, start explaining it away – what a result after yur Left policies cause so any Black lives.

  • Bigger_Mike

    Is it every weekend? Is it 40 people? LMAO at a MORON. So you mean that the Republican politics of Illinois before Bladojevich didn’t cause the problem for YEARS before that by being in cahoots with Daly? Once again, you are indeed a DUMB ASS.

  • rubber stamp

    So it was the fault of great great great great great grandfather that you’ve become such moron? You give everyone a pass, all Democrats who run your ghettos, why? because Dems made a deal with your Black leaders “you keep them in-line and vote D, and we will make sure they never work a day in their lives, don’t pay rent or very little because you are Blacks and stupid to make it on your own, will give you some foodstamps, Obamaphone, you stay in your hoods and not go to White Limousin Liberal hoods. And make sure blaming Republicans for everything we Dems inflicted on you, but shhh, keep it quiet” – this is what you got from Dems

  • Bigger_Mike

    Really?? You’re quoting Kennedy from 1961? It’s almost 60 years later now. Get a grip and keep it moving. A RIDICULOUS comment from you. And by the way stupid – Democrats did NOT organize the Klan, although they did USE the Klan and those same Democrats are now REPUBLICANS. The one who needs to wake up is YOU.

  • rubber stamp

    That’s a libel you carry on and on. No, no no, you won’t get away with this propaganda lie you Dems created to save your arses. KKK is a wing of Democrat Party. No, KKK hates Republicans today, they vote Democrat. They were Democrat and they are Democrat today. Democrats overwhelmingly voted AGAINST Civil Rights when Republicans voted for it. Chew on that

  • Bigger_Mike

    ROTFLMAO. What’s the matter stupid? Truth hurts huh? No DUMB ASS, the Klan is majority REPUBLICAN today. The South is REPUBLICAN after being Democrat for over a century> Now why do you suppose that is Junior? And no MORON, Democrats did not OVERWHELMINGLY vote against Civil Right you IDIOT. For if they did STUPID. it wouldn’t have passed as both the House and the Senate at that time were MAJORITY Democrat. Get a clue dumb ass.

  • rubber stamp

    Democrats created KKK and still are Democrats. KKK are not against big government, they hate Blacks but they don’t mind socialism for whites, as Do White Liberal Establishment today, Chicago is the most segregated city today, city is run by Left nut jobs like Emanuel, and others like you

  • Craig

    Actually more Republicans voted for The Civil Rights Law than Democrats. There was Democrat support but the majority voted against the law. 21 senators against, 90 house members against to only 6 republican senators and 34 republicans in the house.

  • Bigger_Mike

    Now MORON, if you want me to embarrass you with the actual facts like the actual VOTE for the Civil Rights Act, or the FACT that the SOUTH has voted REPUBLICAN now for almost 50 years – let’s go LMAO.

    Please, please, I beg you, embarrass me with the fact on how Democrats created KKK, how Dems were pro segregation, how Democrats fought the North in Civil war to keep slavery. Please, go for we, we are waiting.

    Dumb ass – the Democrats did NOT create the Klan STUPID? I see you have a reading problem. And MORON, if you are speaking of the Civil War, they weren’t democrats idiot, They were Confederates.

  • LianneC

    I am so sick of the phrase, Lets have a conversation about this, or a discussion. I don’t think most people even know what it means and think its just a intellectual thing to say. Ms Dash is the epitome of the modern strong black woman this world needs more of. Everyone seems to be evolving except one particular race who is spiraling backwards.

  • ThroughDifferentEyes

    And the fact you see “NOTHING” wrong with saying “Everyone seems to be evolving except one particular race who is spiraling backwards.” just diminished everything you wrote before that.

  • LianneC

    You are the problem. The black race is in trouble. Want to talk about black abortions stats and “have a conversation” about how a lot of black fathers are absent and spreading their seeds everywhere? Want to talk about thug rape prison culture and talk about the sagging pants? Remember what MLK dressed like? If you want to stop the N word how about talking to the no talent rappers that get invited to our White House that use the word at least 100 times in their songs. So if you can’t see the blacks are in peril,then I don’t know what to tell ya.

  • Justin L Counts Sr.

    First of all you can’t take the actions of some, and label a whole race behind your observations. Do all black people use the new word or sag pants or rape men? Better yet let’s talk about the millions of Caucasian men who molest Young children. Do all white men behave this way? No they don’t. What about the heroine and meth epidemic that is destroying your suburbs now? Exactly we won’t speak on these issues because they are not black issues. But your quick to point out flaws in us but won’t look inside to see the same flaws. And before you misjudge me or racial profile me as a gangster just know that I am a retired veteran in the Air Force, the most prestigious branch might I add.

  • ThroughDifferentEyes

    She wasn’t ready Justin! (LOL)

  • James Morrison

    No, Justin, you can’t take the actions of a few and apply it to all (ie using the Palin girl’s example as a way to show that it happens to whites), especially when the single, or few, cases you use are not statistically normal. There will always be some people from ALL races that do ANY bad thing that you think of. That’s never been in question, as nobody has ever said that ‘nobody in one specific race EVER does that’. Instead, when there are facts from the most recent government numbers that show that 73% of all blacks that are born are born out of wedlock, whereas only 29% of whites born are born out of wedlock, then that is a HUGE statistical difference, and points to a systemic difference between the “black culture” and the rest of the US in regards to this issue. Now, you can attempt to try and debate how important that is to the end result of raising a black child (granted, you’d probably lose that debate, as well), but you can’t deny actual facts that it is happening!

  • ThroughDifferentEyes

    First of all – STOP saying YOU. The American PEOPLE as a WHOLE are in trouble. Who gives a crap about Abortion rates of Black women if you say Black people are in trouble and so don’t want to bring life into this country? White men aren’t spreading seeds??? (LOL)

    I don’t use the N word, I don’t like the Hip Hop dress code, I don’t do drugs, I’m married with three children from the same father and we are an Active Duty military family.

    If you can’t see beyond your news station and your own ignorance of what they average Black Family looks like in America and measure that against the growing number of struggling White families in America – then I don’t know what to tell YOU, other than go deeper into the problem and stop generalizing all of us to what you see on tv, online and in the news.

    PS – Just because you get an “undocumented abortion” with your private doctor – let’s not pretend “other” women don’t have a high abortion rate too.

    PSS – Teen pregnancy has gone DOWN in Black communities – guess where it’s still up.

    Final: I started at home. I don’t throw stones, but I have no problem speaking my piece, with the magnificence that I’ve created in my own home, to be BOLD enough to say – “we’re not all like that, and I’m tired of being called the exception to the rule” – and I won’t tolerate ignorant Black people trying to throw the lot of us under the bus just because we speak out about prejudice, flat out injustice and intolerance. Tolerance and equal justice for all is what our DEMOCRACY is supposed to be based on. Don’t get stuck.

  • Kgizzle

    Wait hold up now, so Bristol Pallin, what about her and her two baby daddies? Black men aren’t the only men spreading around seeds and black women aren’t the only women having abortions as if it is any of your concern anyways. You’re anti government assistance and anti abortion, you can’t be both cause it’s just stupid.
    This is not simple, it’s not as simple as well just stop doing this or that. It’s not equal when certain people started this race six miles ahead and then say WE WON and if you want to win you should just run faster. We are only one generation away from the civil rights movement, one (possibly two depending on when the gen xers have kids). That is nothing. We are what five or six generations out from slavery? We are talking events that were very, very tramatizing to the Black race. Plus we won’t even get into how Blacks are still unfairly profiled by police or discrimination in housing which affects EVERYTHING. It will probably be several more generations before we fully rebound. I love how white people caused every.single.bit of the trauma done to blacks and now they want to say, hey that was along time ago, get over it, pick yourself up. Check your privilege, if you are white in this country, you have an advantage and it just is what it is.

  • LianneC

    Yes, in todays society, a woman having 2 children 6 years apart by two different dads is just the worst thing ever. Great comparison.

  • Kgizzle

    If the princess of abstence and conservative values can have two babies and two baby dads and has never been married, well ijs people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. Don’t say Black people are in trouble when white people are doing the same shyt. Further as I illustrated above institutional racism and discrimination is responsible for alot of what Black people are experiencing now.

  • LianneC

    Do you want to talk about actual abortion stats among the blacks, or nah? MLK would be spinning in his grave.

  • Kgizzle

    What do abortion stats among Blacks have to do with ANYTHING? Absolutely nothing and honestly who gives a f*ck about abortion. If you don’t believe in abortion then you shouldn’t have one. Worry about your uterus.

  • Bigger_Mike

    And what the HELL do you know about King? King would be embarrassed as HELL looking at your ridiculous bullshit here.

  • LianneC

    Yes, I am sure he would sag his drawers to advertise his ass is available for a good screwing.

  • Bigger_Mike

    LMAO again at an IDIOT. So are you saying that ALL Black people do that? I guess that he’d stick a needle in his arm and blame Heavy Metal too wouldn’t he stupid? You are a DUMB ASS.

  • James Morrison

    You realize that a single occurrence is statistically meaningless, right? And even more so in a total pool that is roughly 200 million (compared to a pool that is less than 40 million). The point that was made is that it is much more statistically likely to happen in the black community than the white community. It was never said that the number was 0% among whites; instead, it was just simply stated that the percentage of blacks in that situation are much higher than the percentage of whites in that situation. I don’t think most people that point out that factual difference believe that the cause is the color of their skin. Instead, there is a valid question of whether the black “culture” leads blacks to make choices that lead to that result more often than other races.

    According to the latest figures, 73% of all African-American births were out of wedlock, compared to 29% of whites. That is not just a minor difference, and having absentee fathers is not the best path to helping a child reach his full potential. But, hey, since you pointed out a single instance of it happening to a white person, feel free to blindly ignore the actual facts, which is that situation is not close to a normal occurrence for whites, but is actually often the case for most blacks.

  • Kgizzle

    James I understand statistics I am a doctor. My comments are directed to LianneC’s original comment and she/he is basically stating that Black people are to blame for everything and that simply isn’t the truth. She’s going on a moral tangent that has nothing to do with anything. Some White people have abortions, some White men have multiple children they don’t care for, these things happen in every community, but when it happens to Black people they are trash, when it happens to White people, well who cares, they are White. Don’t sit here acting like White people are angels when Black people have been systemically targeted and kept down for a good portion of US history. You can’t ignore slavery, Jim Crow, the war on drugs, mass incarceration when spouting these statistics. LianneC’s comments are highly unfair and really they have nothing to do with this post anyways.

  • James Morrison

    Kgizzle, here is your quote “If the princess of abstence and conservative values can have two babies and two baby dads and has never been married, well ijs people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. Don’t say Black people are in trouble when white people are doing the same shyt.”

    You were clearly making the intellectually weak argument that because that white girl did it, that shows that whites do it, too, so you can’t say anything about blacks doing it when whites do it to.

    What those incredibly relevant statistics I stated show is that there is a problem in the black community when it comes to out of wedlock births that absolutely dwarfs the same problem in the white community. There is absolutely no way around the facts, which is that roughly 3/4 of all black births are out of wedlock!?! You can try and deflect and point out that there are some relatively rare (compared to the rate it happens in the black community) occurrences in the white community of the same problem, but there’s no intellectually valid argument that you can make on this point.

    Of course, it also blows your other previous claim out of the water that “white people caused every.single.bit of the trauma done to blacks”. Unless of course you’d like to try and blame all of those fatherless black births on whites, too!?! Did I miss the secret memo all the whites received which commanded us to force an overwhelming majority of black men that fathered a child to refuse to be around for the kids’ childhood growth and development?

  • Kgizzle

    James I’m really trying to understand your point. What does having a child out of wedlock have to do with anything? Are you saying that Black people are less moral and holy then White people and thus they deserve to suffer? We brought it all on ourselves, years of systematic discrimination had nothing to do with anything? My overlying point is that Blacks are stigmatized for the same problems plaguing all communities. Further, you can’t make the assumption that an unwed birth is an unplanned birth. This is 2016, many people have children without being married, it doesn’t mean that the fathers aren’t in the picture, it doesn’t mean that the fathers aren’t a part of the child’s growth and development. Over half of marriages end in divorce so many children will live in a household with a parent who is no longer married. Of these unwed births, how many of the father’s aren’t around? You can’t assume that the fathers aren’t around because they aren’t married to the mothers. What are the ages and level of education of the unwed mothers? Mass incarceration, the war on drugs, Jim Crow and so many other atrocities carried out by white people have cause significantly more damage to the Black community then having a child without being married.

  • James Morrison

    The point is that kids with 2 parents do better statistically than those with just 1 parent, which is the case with a majority of blacks (even accounting for the rare unicorn in the black community, ie. the black baby daddy that knocks a girl up and actually stays involved in the kid’s life). So, for you to say that whites caused every problem with blacks is to overlook the number of things that are solely within the control of blacks that they do on a widespread basis that do lead to things being worse than they would otherwise. The point is that you (and many others like yourself) honestly believe that whites are the cause of every problem with the black community, even today. And if that is truly the case, then there is no hope in having any discussions, since clearly none of the poor choices that a majority of blacks make is really their fault. Actually, in an ironic twist, you sound as silly as Palin blaming Obama for her veteran son beating on his girlfriend!

    So, I would ask a similar question I ask Obama apologists (At what point can we stop blaming EVERYTHING on Bush and accept that a number of the less-than-positive things that are currently happening may just possibly be due to Obama and his choices?). How much longer before we can stop using situations from our great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandfathers as excuses for current times? Another 50 years (that would make it 200 years since the days of the Civil War)? Another 100 years? More? Just tell me what you think the number is before you can stop using the past as an excuse for the present? Or is this excuse good until the end of times? I truly am curious.

  • Kgizzle

    But James you don’t know that Black fathers aren’t involved in their children’s lives and there is no way to measure that so you only have your assumption. Again, you are looking through the lense of your privilege. It’s easy to say that the past doesn’t matter and Black people should just pull themselves up, but that’s difficult to do in a system that has conspired to keep you down year after year after year. Generation after generation.

    Oh and Bush messed up a lot of shyt, in fact my children are being raising without their father because of Bush, not because he was Black and didn’t want to be in their lives, but because he went to Iraq looking for weapons of mass destruction (that didn’t exist) and was killed by a roadside bomb in service to this country. Yeah so I’ll blame Bush and I dare you to say something about it. Again check your privilege and say something to me when White people follow you around a store just because of what you look like. Talk to me when you have to teach your son not to leave the house in a hoodie because you don’t want him to be profiled and targeted. White people don’t even have to think about such things so the difference is tremendous.

  • Bentley

    every.single.bit? You might want to investigate the skin color of the people who FIRST sold blacks into slavery. Their skin color was the same as the people they were selling.

    Brown people still own brown people all over the world. There are more slaves right now than at any other point in human history.

    But blame everything on the white man if it helps you get by. Be my guest.

  • Kgizzle

    We aren’t currently discussing human trafficking Bentley, but while we are at it, the individuals currently buying women, girls and boys for sex (i.e. the slavery of right now) are primarily affluent white men. The pleasure is all mine.

  • James Morrison

    And the ones currently selling them are primarily blacks. The point is you can’t accurately say that “white people caused every.single.bit of the trauma done to blacks”.

  • Bigger_Mike

    Got to love it when people start talking about tribes in African countries who sold their captured slaves after a conquest of another tribe and that equates to Blacks selling other Blacks. Kind of like the British selling of Irish Slaves to work along side of captured Blacks huh?

  • Craig

    I am of Irish decent and Irish slaves were some of the most poorly treated slaves. They were valued at 1/4 that of an African slave and treated accordingly.

  • James Morrison

    Since a generation is considered to be roughly 20-25 years (biologically speaking), and since the Civil Rights movement was roughly 50 years ago, that is at least 2 generations. If you’re talking societal generations, there have been 4 (Gen X,Y, Z, and the current unnamed one that started 11 years ago).

    Regardless, you say that it’s too soon to expect the black community to be able to decrease their across-the-board highest rate of criminal offenses per capita, or highest number of people on public assistance per capita, or any other of the number of metrics that should be an embarrassment to the overall black population. So, go ahead and pick how many years before it’s been long enough to expect some progress to have been made on those fronts. Whatever number you pick, based on the way things are going currently and with no change in sight, I’ll take the “over” on whatever number you come up and be quite confident in my bet.

  • Bigger_Mike

    Hmmm. Interesting. Considering that on an economic and educational front that we were held back from opportunites and are still being held back from them in current day, perhaps that someone as intelligent as yourself could use those said metrics as to conclude what proportion of the prior discriminatory practices has done to the potential wealth of Black Americans, and that potential wealth and education would systematically bring down crime, and people on public assistance. Also, have to love the ”per capita” quote for statistics here when it’s clearly know that more money is spent on the support of White people on public assistance than Black people, which folks like you don’t like to discuss.

  • Craig

    Abortion has done more to diminish the wealth of black americans than any perceived “educational” lack. The opportunities are there….more abundantly than people take advantage of.

  • James Morrison

    Apparently you don’t understand the concept of statistics and percentages. If you have one group that numbers roughly 200 million and another group that numbers roughly 40 million, obviously in raw numbers the group that is 5 times the size of the other group will likely have more occurrences of a situation. But, from a mathematical standpoint, that is irrelevant. It’s the same concept behind grocery shopping that something that costs $10, but has 6 ounces of a product looks crazy expensive to less educated people that see a bag of that product that “only” costs $5 but has just an ounce of product. The great equalizer is the percentage (or per capita). That gives an accurate representation of what would be considered “normal” for that situation. So, yes, when it comes to births, most blacks being born are being born out of wedlock, and most whites being born are not being born out of wedlock. What that means is that if there were an equal number of blacks as whites in the US, you could expect that nearly 3 times as many blacks would be born out of wedlock as whites. That’s not just a minor difference. That is a huge difference. So, when you see two sets of data that are so diametrically different, it makes sense to wonder why there is such a difference between the 2 groups.

  • James Morrison

    Oh, and just to let you know, according to recent stats, just on pure raw numbers, of the people accepting welfare, just over 39% of them are black, and just over 38% of them are white. So, even in raw numbers, despite having 5 times as many people in their group, more blacks are on welfare than whites! If you look at their rates among their individual groups, nearly 42% of all blacks receive means-tested benefits, while only 13% of all whites receive means-tested benefits, which explains how blacks are able to have more people on welfare than whites, even with the whites outnumbering them 5-1! So, you are once again wrong on ALL counts.

  • Craig

    Are you aware that the first slave owner in America was black? Are you also aware that it was blacks in Africa that sold their conquered enemies? How is it only the “buyer” is guilty but not the “seller”?
    There isn’t a single race that hasn’t endured slavery at some point in history, so we are all in the same boat. There is one indisputable fact and that is there is no place of greater opportunity for all races than here in America.

  • Kgizzle

    Yup I’m aware and it’s not relevant. Jim Crow, discrimination in jobs and housing. Tracking Black children through the education system. I could go on and on.

  • Craig

    Of course it is relevant, unless of course you have a biased agenda and only see things that back up your bias.

  • TheKhay24 .

    So let’s say you’re right. One particular race is spiraling backwards. That one particular race is telling you there is a system in place that makes it 10x more difficult for them to excel. When it comes to getting jobs, loans, homes, etc. its not as easy if you’re white. Her name is Stacey Dash and her skin is on the lighter side. Her name is not Saquisha Jones. So lets think about Saquisha Jones. Instead of saying “well that name is stupid, why would her parents name her that?” like some people would, note that its their culture, just like some would associate Tom & Billy or Amy & Ally as white people names or white culture. Now imagine having to give up your culture just to get a call back for a job. It doesn’t even ensure that you’ll get one because you can still go to the interview, they see that you’re black and they say no.
    That’s just on the first level. NFL playoffs are big right now. How many football team owners are black? None. Because in order to own a football team you need wealth. Not just to do well for yourself but you need wealth. So in America, the land where dreams can come true, how many black people if they dream to own a NFL football team even have an odd for the odds to be against them. Its 10x easier for a white person to climb that ladder. I’m trying to get you to understand black people are still being judged by their cover even before they’re read and it makes life extremely difficult for them. So the next time you see a black person, or a Hispanic, or Asian with a name that is even slightly associated with white culture understand those parents said I have to give up a part of me in order for my child to have a chance at having a future.

  • LianneC

    Seriously, if you want to go tit for tat over color, go after scammers like Shaun King and his scamming the black people and profiting by pretending to actually be one. If we have any chance at any kind of future we need to evolve above being so basic as to make decisions, like how we vote for President based on just a color. We should be a little more complex than that by now.

  • UdonNo

    YOU’RE AN IDIOT.

  • TheKhay24 .

    I agree, we should be a little more complex, so to think Obama was voted for based on color is thinking too basic. I have yet to hear you say something to would show me you tried putting the shoe on the other foot. Imagine if every president in American history was black, and the system of racism was really embedded into every aspect of life. And things have changed so that you can come into establishments, but its a lot more difficult for you to get anything. So you watch all kinds of service smile with black people but with white people they give them a hard time. if you had the opportunity to have a president that you thought could change some of that in 4-8 years, would you still say we need to be more complex than just thinking about color? Or would you want someone who is closer to understanding what you go through to help you?

  • LianneC

    The black turn out for black voters had never been higher until Obama, or do you want to refute that? Black vote is going to Trump and you know it.

  • TheKhay24 .

    lol no I wont refute that because you’re making my point. And I don’t know the black vote is going to Trump. I am however going to keep my ears open for the election being rigged.

    I mean there were a lot of promises, but it seems to me that the black community is worse off now. What is the unemployment rate, around 15 % or so?

  • Basil Malik

    again, where do you get your information freom? What scam has Sean king run? What profits has he himself earned other than his wage from writing about social injustice. Is tat the scam to you, social injustice?

  • LianneC

    Um, hes white, pretending to be black. But I guess he panders to low information voters such as yourself who is too scared to acknowledge the truth that you guys are being scammed by a white guy. That should really piss you off. The FACT it doesn’t speaks volumes.

  • Basil Malik

    Shaun King presents information regarding injustice in america of both black and white victims that the media neglects. NOw if you consider that low information and unseemly while you ingest and regurgitate the bull shit from sources who do nothing but pander to low information bigots such as yourself, then thats your choice. But you’re not even on a level to have an intelligent conversation with. I just find it odd you’re mad at a white guy for covering injustice. I would think a patriot would be more upset over the injustice but when dogs are trained only to respond to the whistle sounds of the 1800’s, I guess I shouldn’t expect much from you at all.

  • James Morrison

    Naming their children Saquisha, or putting a ‘La’ or ‘Le’ in front of a “normal” name, or spelling their names phonetically (or at least their version of phonetically) have absolutely NOTHING to do with “culture”! If you want to say that some “different” names that are actually based on their African heritage, then yes, that could be considered a cultural choice. All of those others, however, have no “culture” behind them. They have no significance in previous “black culture” and are really more often just a way for them to be different than the “mainstream” (ie white) population. So, if someone is going to go with a ridiculously silly name that is spelled as though the person failed the Hooked on Phonics lessons, that has nothing to do with culture and everything to do with cutting off their nose to spite their face. It’s no different than someone getting a huge tattoo that covers their entire face. They’re doing it because they can and to show that they’re “different”. And yes, in corporate America (where teamwork is often required), somebody that deliberately thumbs their nose at everyone else simply for the sake of being “different” will often be overlooked, since they appear to be more interested with being different than being a team player.

    When you talk about how blacks have little to no chance of becoming an NFL owner, do you realize that the odds of any random white person becoming an NFL owner are not much different from a probability standpoint, since in both cases, someone is more likely to win the Powerball while being attacked by a shark and hit by lightning (all at the same time) than they are to become an NFL owner.

    And as long as blacks in the US continue to push the segregationist ideas that separate them from society and prevent them from considering themselves part of a single American society, the us vs them mentality will persist in BOTH directions. Ms. Dash just pointed out that the Democratic party (led by the current President and his administration) has been one of the biggest proponents of keeping up the us vs. them mentality, in order to continue their power stranglehold over the black community for their own political gains.

  • TheKhay24 .

    Just because the names are not taken back to Africa does not mean its not apart of Culture. Culture, Heritage, 2 different things. But even if the names are “Different”, how can you judge someone you don’t know as not being a team player? That’s an ingredient of racism.
    I’m glad you brought up tattoos. Having your face tatted is not uncommon within the Tattoo Community, whether it is the entire face or a small portion, that is their language, its not uncommon to their culture and people who love body art. Still I ask you, how can you judge them without knowing them? Its because you think you do. You already have an idea of what people who have their entire face tatted are like. And the same goes for how people view black people, they think they can label all of them.
    My point about becoming an NFL owner is not that it wouldn’t be difficult for any random person, but that in taking a random black person and a random white person, holding everything the same, its still easier for the random white person to climb that ladder and become an NFL owner.
    Why is it that way? Its because America is still afraid of “Different”, different to what? Different to Amy, Allie, Billy, Tom, Jeff, etc. and that’s racism.

  • UdonNo

    BUT WHAT HAS SHE DONE FOR BLACK ADVANCEMENT? Like a magic johnson, Spike Lee, Oprah, Shaq, Nelly, Alicia Keys, etc. I dare you to name one thing she has done with her platform…

  • LianneC

    She is influencing, much to your dismay other strong black people to speak up and show them its ok to not drink the koolaid.

  • UdonNo

    YOU INFLUENCE BY ACTION, NOT BY CRAZY TALK. ANYBODY CAN DO THAT.
    YOU TOO ARE AN IDIOT.

  • Bigger_Mike

    Is that what she’s doing??? LMAO.

  • Poptart-Bella

    She thinks for herself and isn’t a sheep and caters to the liberal media, unlike all those you named.

  • UdonNo

    SHE CATERS TO THE RACIST MEDIA.
    YOU IDIOT.

  • Klem

    I am not meaning to argue with you or anything, but do you realize that what you keep asking is exactly what she’s pointing out and calling for people to stop? You keep segregating race with your question, asking “what has she done for black advancement”. Like if she accomplishes anything and its not directly “for black people”, she isn’t doing anything of note. I’m not saying I know anything about her humanitarianism, but I myself understand how we don’t need to advance as separate races, but as HUMANKIND. We cant do that if we keep expecting one skin tone to advance its own skin tone. We are all human and thus the same race. It shouldn’t matter what color you are. I understand that it does, but what she’s saying it… IT SHOULD NOT.

  • UdonNo

    MORE BS. All successful ethnic groups have one thing in common, they separate themselves from everybody else and stick together. Jews do it the best, but so so Asians, Indians etc– EXCEPT for guess who..Blacks. All that humankind BS is made to distract blacks and keep them at the bottom.

  • Klem

    I don’t think I can agree on that. I mean, I understand your line of thinking, but it doesn’t make sense to me. You’re saying you do not agree that all races acting as one people would benefit the whole? We are better off looking out for only the people who share our own skin tone and we SHOULD be segregated? In that way we will elevate each of our own races?

    No, I don’t agree with that. If everyone in EVERY race that “gave back to their communities” got together and puts their minds to work, I guarantee major problems would be solved. Thats what Stacy Dash is trying to say. Stop drawing lines and saying “I’ll only help you if you’re my color”. It doesn’t matter if white people do it. THEY SHOULD STOP. It doesnt matter is Jews do it. THEY SHOULD STOP. Any thing anyone has to say to defend selective segregation is negated by the fact that its wrong. Skin tone means nothing. Nationality means nothing. Its wrong to label ppl based on those things and it SHOULD STOP.

  • Basil Malik

    which race would that be that is spiraling backwards? What metrics are you using? Or does this just come from the telly?

  • Hansy Peguero

    You are biting the hand that fed you. You are an ungrateful person. White media didn’t give you a platform until you started spewing this coonery. Black people did better under Clinton and Obama than under Bush. Those are HARD FACTS and no amount of right wing propaganda can change that. You pretend to be an educated person but you fail. Here is the definition of liberal: “willing to respect or accept behaviour or opinions different from one’s own; open to new ideas.” Learn it.

  • http://thechive.com Patrick Swayze

    where can I read these “hard facts”? sources? Black on black crime peaked during Clintons term so ???

  • Go Wipe Your Ass

    oh really Patrick? would YOU like to post some ‘hard facts’ and sources about your silly claim too?

  • http://thechive.com Patrick Swayze

    https://www2.fbi.gov/ucr/cius2009/data/table_01.html . You’ll notice it was lower still under G.W. Bush. Also African American incarceration rates skyrocketed under Clinton. Anything else I can get you?

  • powdereddonuts

    “Coonery” is proof that what she is saying has merit: not all black people think alike.

  • UdonNo

    OK, it would be easier to understand you rationale, but at the end of the day, as a black person with a platform WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR BLACK ADVANCEMENT? I’ll wait..

  • http://thechive.com Patrick Swayze

    um if you read the article, she is trying to removes the lines the separate the concept of African American and America. That would make her a social pioneer for the black community.

  • UdonNo

    YOU ARE AN IDIOT.

  • http://thechive.com Patrick Swayze

    brilliant reply. what have you done for black advancement btw?

  • UdonNo

    There are black people in the media who have figured out how to make money by saying what whites want to hear. Fox has many of them on speed dial.

  • Maya Cruz Brown

    I keep reading comments regarding Stacey’s past association with BET.

    My question is: What do her past associations/entanglements have to do with her current position? So what if she recieved checks from past acting roles on BET? She was hired to act, she did that and she recieved her pay(as she should have).

    Are those who are now using it against her trying to say that having made money from something in your past precludes a person from speaking out against if at a later time they determine it is/was wrong? I feel she was hired to do a job(act), and if she did the job then she should have been paid and she should feel no shame in having cashed any checks.

    Now, in regards to residual pay, I would agree that it would be hypocritical if she is currently cashing any residual checks sent to her from BET, while at the same time calling for the network to come to an end.
    Has BET presented any proof that she has cashed recently dated residual checks?

  • Bigger_Mike

    What do you mean so what??? If you believe that BET should be eliminated, yet GLADLY accept their checks, you’re a HYPOCRITE and your integrity comes into question, period. Past, present, future, doesn’t matter. She’s NEVER said that she’s changed her position. She’s never said that hey, this is what I believed before, and this is what I believe now. If she did, then at least that would make some sense, but it wouldn’t justify her idiotic position.

  • buzz

    What do you do if you receive blood money? I would assume you give it back, then if she has a problem then she should give it back, which i don’t see her do. It now boils down to ethics and virtues.

  • buzz

    “The actress also added her voice to the political persecution of Jay Z and Beyonce for their 2013 trip to Cuba. The actress took to Twitter to blast the power couple saying, “Do you care that The Jay-Z’s have taken the capital you have given them,” Dash tweeted, “and funded a communist oppressive regime?”” Is that not being a hypocrite?

  • powdereddonuts

    Jada Pinkett Smith:

    Here’s what I believe; the Academy has the right to acknowledge whomever they choose, to invite whomever they choose, and now I think that it’s our responsibility now to make the change. Maybe it is time that we pull back our resources, and we put them back into our communities, into our programs, and we make programs for ourselves that acknowledge us in ways that we see fit that are just as good as the so-called mainstream ones. I don’t know, here’s what I do believe: Begging for acknowledgment or even asking diminishes dignity, and diminishes power, and we are a dignified people, and we are powerful, and let’s not forget it. So, let’s let the Academy do them, with all grace and love, and let’s do us differently. I got nothin’ but love.

  • Bigger_Mike

    And the problem with her statement is what? She didn’t say separate stupid. She said make your own stuff and support it. You have a problem with that?

  • powdereddonuts

    Apparently liberals don’t have a problem with blacks being separatist and this is what Stacey was addressing.

  • Bigger_Mike

    And you didn’t answer the question – who SPECIFICALLY in the Liberal community is calling for Black people to separate?

  • powdereddonuts

    I wouldn’t consider Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam conservatives.

    When is the last time Farrahkhan called for Black people to separate? How many years ago was that? LMAO. AND you can come up with only one person? By the way they are WAY more conservative than you think

  • Poptart-Bella

    <3 <3 <3

  • Daphney Waggoner

    If there is no need for BET, NAACP image Awards, etc. then I have one question for Ms. Dash?

    In 1995 when Clueless was “greenlighted” for production, how come she wasn’t offered the role of Cher? Why was she automatically relegated to the role of “side-kick” aka Dionne? After all there was no plot device that stated that the lead had to be Caucasian, was there? Alicia Silverstone was appearing in her first motion picture at that time, Stacey Dash was in her 4th movie role and was almost 30 years old at the time. Wouldn’t experience (if all things were equal) have dictated that Stacey Dash be the star of the movie?

    But those conversations weren’t entertained at that time by the studio, they aren’t entertained now, 20+ years later.

    This is why African Americans are fed up with the nonsense. And it’s not just us, so stop trying to “divide” and conquer, every minority group in this country has caught “hell” from the dominant culture (which happens to be Euro-centric and White). But I don’t see anybody saying eliminate Univision, Telemundo, etc. And most curious of all, doesn’t Viacom own several of the “segregated” outlets anyway under their parent organization?

    Stop the madness and stop getting angry at the people that are identifying the mess and saying that because they identified the mess they caused it.

  • powdereddonuts

    All I know is a black guy I never heard off was starring in the latest Star Wars movie.

  • erico

    And everybody almost lost their mind. Why?

  • Lucille

    If you guys get what you want and 1/2 of the nominees are black everytime there is an awards show going forward (whether or not deserving) – will this mean that BET, the NAACP awards and all those shows promoting minorities (like miss black america etc.) go away because you will have achieved your supposed equality? If not, what would happen at that point if a WET came out?

  • Bigger_Mike

    You’ve had your WET for YEARS before cable. That would be CBS, NBC, and ABC.

  • Craig

    Funny I remember Good Times, Jeffersons, Cosby, What’s Happening, et al being on those same networks….

  • Michael

    Now name 10 more shows of color in the last 50 years. Go ahead, I’ll wait.

  • Lucille

    Steve Harvey show, Martin, prince of bel air ( remember will smith?), wayans brothers, family matters, Jamie foxx, in living color, Bernie Mac, benson, and Roc…….don’t forget Amos and Andy ;). So that’s and easy 11.

  • Bigger_Mike

    Benson was a black show? One character constitutes a black show now? And 11 shows out of all the years of television programs? Wow we have been represented well.

  • Lucille

    Yes, he is a black man and the show is named after him. You said 10, I gave you 11. I can come up with many more. I know you’re embarrassed because you just don’t know your facts. It’s ok Mike.

  • Bigger_Mike

    LMAO at aonother IDIOT. One black man, the rest White Charcters. White Writers. White Producers. Oh you’re so right LMAO it was a BLACK show. You are just a new kind of stupid aren’t you :-) And I’m not the one who asked you stupid so obviously you can’t comprehend what you’re reading. And for every so called Black show I’ll give you 100 White ones. Again, the diversity is just STAGGERING.

  • Michael

    Thank you for giving me 10 good ones and a racially charged one. In 50 years, well done. Now can you give me 10 shows about White people in the last six months?

  • Bigger_Mike

    Wow. 4 Television shows. Until cable came along, 2 on CBS, 1 on the other networks. Good call there.

  • Lucille

    And there were and are plenty of black folks on these stations. Hmmmm….still didn’t answer my question. We never had a station called ” white entertainment television”. What would happen if we did? RIOTS IN THE STREETS!

  • Bigger_Mike

    That’s absolutely NOT what we want stupid. Nobody said anything about Black people getting half of anything. BUT since you don’t want to point this out but I WILL, when the Academy is 94% WHITE and 77% MEN, voting will tend to be skewed a certain way until the makeup becomes more representative of the population they serve. Let me know if that’s too much for you to comprehend.

  • Russell Eberts

    Stacey Dash: Clueless since 1995

  • powdereddonuts

  • powdereddonuts

    I’m with you when you are right Stacey.

  • Andy

    So if “liberalism” hasn’t done anything for black folks, please, please tell me what “conservatism” has done? I do agree both sides have let people down. Our leaders need to be able to represent EVERYONE, not just one or the other. Having to pick sides to get anything done is the true fatal flaw in our system. And “Don’t listen to liberals when they say that integration was a failure and that our true strength is in separatism.” What liberal is saying this!?

  • James Morrison

    I suppose one difference is that the conservatives aren’t lying to the black community and making the empty promises that the liberal Democrats are. Of course, that irony makes it even more amusing to the rest of us looking in. The only “side” that has been consistently failing to deliver on promises to bring their race up is the same “side” that those blacks continue to blindly vote for!

  • Bigger_Mike

    Really?? Just what EXACTLY are conservatives saying to the Black community? What promises are they making that are encouraging Blacks to OVERWHELMINGLY flock to their platform and get them to vote for them? Oh that’s RIGHT. Conservative philosophy is that they don’t GIVE a shit about Blacks because they know that they can’t win their vote. So they don’t even TRY.

  • Craig

    School choice, personal responsibility, family unity…..all things blacks used to have prior to the “war on poverty”

  • Bigger_Mike

    And that’s what ReDUMBlicans are promising to Black people? LMAO.

  • Craig

    They have been for decades…dont forget it was Republicans who ended slavery.

  • Bigger_Mike

    Fact – Lincoln didn’t give a damn about the slaves and said so publicly as long as he could preserve the union. The Emancipation Proclamation freed the slaves in the South so they could help out the North to win the war meanwhile the Union States who had slaves got to keep them. And the Republicans of today are the Dixiecrats of years past. You don’t forget that.

  • Lucille

    Thousands of soldiers died for the idea of ending slavery. Shame on you Bigger Mike.

    At one time yes. But now your choices of what you can do are determined by what choices you make regarding education and behavior. The only color a Realtor cares about is green!

  • Lucille

    Key word here is “were”. Move on.

  • Eduardo Esteban Estes

    Why are conservatives or anyone else SUPPOSED to do anything for you. Doing for you is your job. It’s high time to stop blaming whitey for out of wedlock births by multiple men, allowing crime to take place because you dont want to help the police. It’s high time for black children to stop being accused of acting white because they try to educate themselves.

  • Bigger_Mike

    That was the biggest amount of BULLSHIT you’ve said so far Ms. Dash. Boo-hoo, poor you. Now when people are smacking the shit out of you for your ridiculous comments (and rightly so), you want to bring up your background??? Hilarious. Nobody cares about where you came from. You said something STUPID. It’s not the first time (see your Meredith Viera interview about women’s pay inequality). Now you’re getting smacked for it. Suck it up. You deserve it.

  • circa blonk

    You can use all the sarcasm you want; the fact of the matter is when the spotlight of racism isn’t constantly shining down on Whites, Whites will move into the abyss of racial darkness. You have to keep a close eye on Whites; look throughout history, any chance they’ve gotten to take advantage of a different race they have. But whites like you want Blacks to think that racism doesn’t exist so that you can keep being racist. It’s tantamount to me convincing you that me shooting and killing someone isn’t murder; then you’d let me keep shooting and killing people. Stacey dash is the dumb one, because she clearly can’t see that. Stacey is a black-sheep in the midst of racist white-wolves who are trying to user her to attract other black-sheep so they can feast. You -because it benefits you- will endorse her. Don’t call her smart just because you’re an idiot and you agree with her; that just means you’re both idiots.

  • Lucille

    As long as minorities keep “racism” alive, they continue to benefit. Can’t risk losing their status. Make sure you bring race into everything. You’re an idiot for being used like a tool.

    Oh please elaborate. This ought to be good.

  • Lucille

    Um…..no.

  • Eboni Moore

    LOL minorities can’t keep racism alive. It’s America and the people in power, minorities don’t have enough influence, money or power to stop another group from progressing, which is essentially racism

  • Lucille

    I hate to say it Eboni, but yes it is the minorities keeping this fire burning. They keep pushing and asking and receiving. Everyone is afraid to say no and be labeled a racist. Nobody can argue with a minority for fear they’d be called a racist. When there is some kind of racial issue, here comes al sharpton, dr. Jackson, will smith and whoopi Goldberg getting in your face. You know the black population is the most powerful 13% of our nation asking for the 50% they think is deserved them for slavery. Dude, it’s over. We are so over that now for 100 years. Plenty of whites and many other ethnicities died fighting for slavery to be abolished but y’all keep bringing it to the front every chance you get. The point we all would like to make is that we are equal. Everyone is ok with that but the blacks. They’ve been given too many concessions over the years and they don’t want to lose them. So keep the fires stoked so it’s never taken away. That’s what is going on.

  • trixietimez

    I know this sounds bad, but when my niece was trying to get scholarships as a disabled and poor student, all the scholarships required you to be black or hispanic. No lie.

  • aaron

    yes lie, there are many on top of many scholarships for many on top of many types of individuals. From native Alaskan to women, disabled to vets, scholar ships are even given to women from the miss America pageant. Your niece if disabled qualifies for the Pell grant, and gets all kinds of grants from the school itself. Affirmative action is not the same as scholarships, even still Affirmative action (which I am against in some respects) is about those who are disenfranchised by society, that includes so many different groups of people. Yet in still your comment is a lie there are so many different types of scholarships and lots more that have nothing to do with race. so why the lie? does it make you feel better? better yet if you have to lie to prove a point that usually means your point is wrong!

  • Lucille

    There are many scholarships out there but so many people are going after a limited amount available in their specific cause. There are many more scholarships available for primarily black students then any other scholarship. Why do you think they’ve recently caught white people trying to pass as black to get a full ride? Some have succeeded. There are so many available to 13% (black) of our population, so they are much easier to get. How many miss Americas are there? Really?

  • Lucille

    I know Trixie it’s true. When my sister applied to a college a few years back she was awarded a full scholarship because they thought she was black. As soon as they realized their mistake it was yanked away. The % of scholarships for black students is very high compared to those disabled. So they are much easier to get.

    Clearance Thomas Is a black SCOTUS judge and never said anything bad about blacks. VPJoe BIden says they want to put yall back in ball and chains, and Black people support BIden

  • Bigger_Mike

    Thomas claims that there shoudn’t be programs like affirmative action even though he used to run the EEOC. The only reason that Thomas is a SCOTUS now is because he’s a Black Conservative who replaced a Black Liberal icon in Thurgood Marshall, which in effect WAS an affirmative action hire. His opinions on the court have not been in the best interest of Black people so while he says nothing, his rulings have not been conducive to Blacks at all.

  • oldrndirt

    Thomas is not on the Supreme Court to vote on the interests of black people he is there to judge whether the cases that come before the court are constitutional.

  • Bigger_Mike

    Granted. However if you have looked at his record, he has consistently ruled against items that have helped Black people.

  • John H

    Ms. Dash, I completely agree that all black people are not a monolith and should ascribe to a single dogma, but the issues I have with your analysis are the generalizations and almost a caste type way in which you describe black people. If you want to further the cause, try not insulting those you want to educate to what you have to say. Don’t preach to the conservative choir who will already agree with what you have to say.

    Stacey I love you!!!

    Wow. Just wow. I see some value in what Dash says, also some very ridiculous conclusions. I agree that “black this and black that” actually divides people. It’s been like that since I was a kid in the 60s, and it has not made anything better. It just makes other people bitter. I think it’s time for ALL people to be judged on their own merits. Why is it that so many liberals and black people hold the standard so low for black kids and teens? It’s as if you expect them to fail, you excuse behavior that you would not excuse from people of other colors. That is racism. The black schools are in bad shape because of the parents, not the school district. The parents teach their kids that everyone else is to blame for their problems. This has to stop.

    The foolishness and Fox “News” bit that his so wrong is blaming liberals for everything. Actually, as misguided as they can be about helping TOO much, and dumbing down expectations, the liberals are the ONLY ones that helped blacks get the right to vote, to go to the same schools, to hold office, etc. You just want to shit all over that? I dislike the BLM folks with a passion, they are clueless. They don’t realize that for every stupid stunt they pull, they turn more people against them and ruin the message. They are drama queens. All lives matter. How about you start teaching your kids to listen to authority, not knock out their white teachers in the classroom, or mouth off to police, which kids of ALL colors should not do?

    “The liberals are the ONLY ones that helped blacks get the right to vote, to go to the same schools, to hold office, etc.” Go read a few history books and get your facts straight. It was conservative Republicans who allowed this things to happen. Democrats were the ones responsible for Jim Crow and the KKK. And to counter your next argument, the parties never “switched sides”. Liberals are the ones who are STILL keeping blacks enslaved.

  • Tony Lawrence

    It was Republicans who worked against Black slavery but the GOP of Lincoln’s day is gone. Today its racists like Ted Nugent and goofs like Sarah Palin. Liberals aren’t enslaving anyone by the way.

  • Bigger_Mike

    Really??? The party never switched sides huh? See Strom Thurmond, Jesse Helms, Trent Lott et al. Southern States who voted Democrat for over a century has now voted Republican for the last 50 years. Coincidence, No.

    Hmmm, how did a conversation on the Oscars turn into a campaign against liberals and Democrats? One thing has absolutely nothing to do with the other. Black people have never been monolithic i.e.., Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. DuBois. We can walk and chew gum at the same time – so nothing earth-shattering there. However, why is it a problem for us to have a few majority black corporations and organizations when the majority of the Fortune 500 companies in America have all-white boards, CEO’s and employees, but, oh yeah, they don’t have any problems accepting our money for their products and services. Remember, we didn’t start the fire, we’ve just learned how to put it out by not going along to get along, anymore. As for Stacey Dash, she’s welcome to her opinion because I don’t know anyone who will be changing anything based upon it.

    Nice try Stacie. You can pander to a racist party if you want too. I have no desire to change your mind or heart. But let’s be clear your views haven’t swayed me or anybody with a brain. Good luck with your whoring for Faux Snooze. I hope it brings you everything you sold your soul for.

  • Randy Jenkins

    I feel like where all out of control. After reading her article, it’s just another outlook on hate as it divides the most powerful nation of every nation ability to be an example to the world. As far as being American it stops at church, if we really believe in God, Jesus and The Holly Spirit love would conquer all thing. So silly how we live together but divided by what were trying to be.

  • Jon Moss

    Good post Stacey, keep dropping these truth bombs and you’ll wake up more people.

    Love ya girl!

  • Tony Lawrence

    Ms. Dash criticizes a network she worked on and she’s also appeared on the cover of several Black magazines. Like several other Black has beens she’s discovered that selling out pays well. Hence her job at FOX. How much does a soul cost? I guess the going rate is whatever FOX pays.
