Stacey Dash Blasted for Clueless and ‘Ignorant’ Honor for Prince

Stacey Dash*Ben Carson wants Harriet Tubman on the $2 bill, instead of on $20, and Stacey Dash wants to take the black out of Prince’s legacy.

#BabyBye….

Oh, and Lawd, please come take your “New Black” children, as their delusions are impeding this slow progress toward healing blackness.

While the world continues to mourn the loss of one of our most iconic musicians – with every celebrity from Justin Timberlake to Shonda Rhimes releasing a message honoring Prince – Stacey Dash pissed of fans by implying that his blackness was second to his extraordinary talent.

“You didn’t look at him as a Black artist or an artist of any color; he was just Prince. His music just resonated with everyone, internationally,” she said, according to BET.

Many think Dash was implying that an artist can’t be black and  universally loved. Folks took to Twitter to express that discontent over Dash’s statement.

Check out some of the Twitter responses below. The fist comment comes from a Facebook post that we happen to agree with. It may or may not have been in response to Dash’s comments.

  1. Stacy is drunk off of that dumb-dumb juice over at Fux, and she can’t help her stupid self… Crazy skank…

  2. “Many think Dash was implying that an artist can’t be black and universally loved.” I’m not one of the many. I understand very clearly what she meant. So does anyone else who is making use of more than three brain cells. And she is absolutely correct. As long as I’ve been seeing and listening to Prince, I’ve never even thought of his race. He’s not a black artist, he’s not a white artist. As Ms. Dash stated, he was and always will be just Prince. At least to me.

  3. Ya’ll need to cut Stacy some slack over the inconvenient truth that back in the 80’s a LOT of white people didn’t think Prince was ‘black’ as in ‘Negro’. They made him out to be all kinds of other things rather than African American. I remember. I was there. Didn’t read about it. Didn’t form an opinion around a false notion. Witnessed it. Their excuse? Prince’s music wasn’t what they considered ‘black’ at the time.

    He passed the ‘paper bag tan’ test so (ya’ll know what that is) so he could conceivably be mixed or something else, so they could justify liking his music. With the exception of disco, most white people did not buy ‘Black’ music. Two people changed that: Jackson and Prince. And ya’ll KNOW Jackson wasn’t black in the end. Until he needed his’ brothers and sisters’ to help protect him against that ‘Devil’ SONY. Had Black Muslim body guards. Until that point the blackest part of Jackson’s day was when he closed his eyes to go to sleep. So what exactly IS Black?

    Prince was NOT black to most of his audience. He WAS just Prince. Think about it….with a Black population at 15% of the population who was the majority of the album sales to? Yep, the other 85%….white people. Morris Day on the other hand was just as light skinned as Prince but his funk more fit the stereotypical ‘black music’ label. How’s his music sales in comparison?

    America has always been hypocritical. If White people like it, it’s ‘not Black’. If it’s bad behavior or something otherwise distasteful, it’s “Black”. Black people accusing Stacey Dash of not liking being Black when she is merely holding a mirror up to a racist society’s image and desire to label is like the pot calling the kettle…oh you know the rest of that story.

    • You are 100% correct Kilroy. But, it probably won’t matter, because if negroes ain’t bitchin’, moanin’ and whinin’, negroes ain’t happy. Now, watch this.

  4. Self-loathing, fake, black people are amazing…

    They always have to put their ignorance on display for racist white people’s approval.

    Prince was brilliant, and proud to be black, and there’s not a damn thing any of you self-loathing butt wipes can do about that. 🙂

    As if black people were/are limited to funk music… Please…

    Stay in denial all you want. Good luck with that.

    • Weren’t no rock and rolling black musicians but Chuck Berry in 1984, Bro. Charlie Pride was on his own. As for ‘self-loathing’, that’s a just cliché you’re tossing around as an insult.
      Means nothing because it’s not based on anything that was discussed here.

      Prince loving being black or not….where exactly does that fit into a discussion on whether the entertainment community looked at him as a ‘black artist’ or not? I view myself as Native American. My associates call me “Doctor”. Not “Red” Doctor. Just Doctor. If you want to stay in denial as if Black people are the only minority in this country that society as a whole seems to want to classify on the basis of their race…good luck with THAT!

      Now wipe your own butt after you pull your head out.

  5. Your interpretation of what I said is flawed, and means absolutely nothing to me.

    Unlike you, IDGAF what white people in the entertainment industry, or in the world think. And you just joined that list too, you stupid ass hole…

    Prince was a badass black man, and for the record, you don’t know every black person playing different genres of music so please stop pretending that you do…

    Simple MFers can’t stand black people claiming their people, and exhibiting black pride. As if we need your permission…

    Please eat shit, and die, freak…

    • Your vast vocabulary makes no worthy point and even your insult is lame. “Eat shit and die?” Really? Of course Prince was a badass Black man but that wasn’t the argument. Was it? It was what was he recognized as in the music business. Did I twist that, huh?

      You on the other hand just a potty mouthed chump too young to express a coherent thought living on the worthy accomplishments of Black men and women long before you were able to waste time your time trying to be insulting. You are the poster child of every racist redneck in America. A mouthy, ignorant blowhard. Did I get that right…blowhard, or do you just suck?

    • “you don’t know every black person playing different genres of music so please stop pretending that you do…”

      I just re-read this. You really are a stupid MFer aren’t you? Arguing about black music and don’t know a damned thing about it.

      BTW, black people claiming their own? Pulez…Prince ain’t yours to claim. What? You be owning Black people now?

      OK that was just provocative and made no point. Just going with the flow you set, Bro.

      • Go fuck yourself kilroy. Better yet, go kill yourself. How’s that for a “potty mouth.”

        You, Stacey Dash, and 50 white trash MFers won’t ever be able to change the fact that Prince was BLACK.

        You are just as bad as a racist white boy selling woof tickets (which is probably who you really are). Have a seat you little troll bitch.

  6. I can’t possibly know what is in that woman’s mind but a truth presented itself to me. By transcending race all people feel that they can identify in totality with an artist. She or her is Korean and Japanese and Liberian, Scandanavian, Haitian, Brazilian And American. I can’t speak toward her instigation. But it appears to me that she has consistently provoked or catalyzed the difficult discussion of race. Not so long ago segregation prevented the majority of fellow citizens from comprehending anything about each other. Prince transcended race. He transcended nationality, ethnicity, race and sexuality. He was the physical embodiment of his music. There is no such thing as black music. Music is meant to be heard by all. It brings the people together and they dance to its insightful vibe.
