Damon Dash: My cousin Stacey is coonin for Fox News

Overview

This week, Stacey Dash made national news by saying that we should ban Black History Month and that the BET Awards were just as racist as the Oscars. The controversy led to outrage throughout the entire African American community, with some wondering if she was trying to impress white people so badly that she would disrespect her own community.

In this interview with Dr Boyce Watkins, Damon Dash speaks about his cousin Stacey and her remarks. While Dash does feel that Jada Pinkett Smith showed a bit of self-interest in her criticism of the Oscars, he believes that black people should be fighting for their own communities.
