I was waiting for someone to take on Stacey Dash, another one of Fox News' conservative black commentators, whose sole function seems to be to attack other blacks. Roland Martin on NewsOne called her out for being a hypocrite for getting paid by the black entertainment outlets like BET as well as not knowing what the hell she is talking about.
BET clapped back with a tweet showing a photo of Dash starring in the BET program The Game and asking for their check back, but on Thursday morning’s NewsOneNow, host Roland Martin went them one better.
Martin began by pointing out that white people do participate in and win the award ceremonies Dash cited, then began a slideshow of Dash’s appearances on the covers of pretty much every black-skewing magazine known to man, and several I think he just made up. He finished by advising Dash to give him a call next time before she goes on Fox News:
Martin: If you go on Fox News and you dare to open your mouth to criticize things that are black-specific, you might want to check your own history and your past, Stacey. Because guess what? I know how to use Google, I know how to call you out, because see I’m not a fake, fraudulent commentator on television, see? I don’t act. This is real. I went to school for this. You didn’t.
So the next time you embarrass yourself, and you lie, please pull your phone out, pull your iPad, and say ‘Let me at least call a brother like Roland, who might tell me before I go on, don’t make a ass outta yourself, lookin’ like a damn fool.’
BET and Roland responded via twitter to her garbage by proving she was more than happy to take money from those she suddenly thinks are unnecessary. Hey, she'll do whatever she's being paid to do I guess:
