Stacey Dash: Not enough roles for black actors to win Oscars
Actress and Fox News contributor Stacey Dash, who most likely remember from the film, 'Clueless,' says the real problem for African Americans in Hollywood is the lack of roles, not the Oscars.

“Clueless” star Stacey Dash is living up to the title of her most famous film.
The African-American actress went so far as to call for the abolition of Black History Month and any other institution celebrating racial differences — even as the uproar over the lack of diversity among this year’s Oscar nominees is building.
“We have to make up our minds,” the actress-turned-conservative-pundit said on Wednesday’s “Fox & Friends.”
“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.
“If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms. It's a double standard.”
High profile black leaders including the Rev. Al Sharpton have called for TV viewers to tune out the Feb. 28 Academy Awards telecast to protest the racial disparity.
