Stacey Dash, Less Self-Aware Than a Blind Goldfish, Curates Own Mean Tweets
Is Stacey Dash less self-aware than doors, doorknobs or interstate highways? Here is some evidence to suggest that yes, she is:
1. In January, Stacey Dash, a black person, canvassed for the end of Black History Month and BET, two ways through which the black community receives support and deserved recognition. "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, which is an objectively crazy thing to say about a systematically-marginalized American community.
2. At the Academy Awards Sunday night (February 28), Stacey Dash didn't realize she was the punch line of a joke through which Chris Rock appointed her "The new director of our Minority Outreach Program." This was obviously said in jest, because Stacey Dash has actively protested Black History Month and BET, as previously mentioned.
3. After the Academy Awards, Stacey Dash posted a video in which she said she thought people were "awestruck" by her appearance. She also seemed content with Rock's assertion that she could fulfill the duties of the fake job he'd fake-given her. She then read a collection of negative tweets written about her in an act that neither proved nor disproved an argument she'd never made.
"There are a lot of people that don't agree with me, and have a lot of very mean things to say," she says above. "Which I will never live down, and a lot of people in my life will use against me for the rest of my life."
Stacey Dash was in the film Clueless, in which her character Dionne screamed loudly after accidentally driving onto the highway. "Ahhh!" she shouted, because the prospect of merging scared her (I love this scene).
