Fox News contributor Stacey Dash suggested Wednesday that celebrating the achievements of people of color only promotes “segregation” in a segment on “Fox & Friends.”

During a discussion of celebrities’ speaking out about the stunning lack of diversity in this year’s Oscars nominations, Dash told Fox host Steve Doocy the outcry is “ludicrous.”

“We have to make up our minds. Either we want to have segregation or integration. And if we don’t want segregation, then we need to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the Image Awards where you’re only awarded if you’re black,” she said. “If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms. It’s a double standard.”

The “Clueless” actress continued: “There shouldn’t be a Black History Month. You know? We’re Americans. Period. That’s it.”

  3. A hypothetical White History Month would discuss things like the Magna Carta, the Age of Exploration, the Renaissance, religious persecution causing British citizens to migrate to the colonies, the drafting of the Constitution, etc. If you didn’t learn this stuff the first time when it was taught to everyone in school, it’s because you are dumb. A special month dedicated to re-teaching these things will not help.
