Last week, Stacey Dash let loose some comments about BET that went viral on the web.
During a sitdown on FOX News, Dash said she wanted to get rid of BET and Black History Month.
Whoopi Goldberg caught wind of her comments and decided to tackle the issue head on during a segment on "The View."
Goldberg starts off the segment by first asking her co-host what she knows about black history besides slavery. She doesn’t answer but says she knows what she’s taught in school, and what she’s tried to learn herself. Goldberg then explains:
"But the thing is, [black history] is not taught. Asian history is not taught in school as it pertains to America. American history holds all of us, and [Dash] is right in that, yes we are all Americans, but we’re not all treated like Americans. One of the reasons that there is a BET is because networks wouldn’t take a lot of shows that has an all black cast.”
