Who’s canceling Black History Month? Certainly not these kids! A group of witty children got together to send actress Stacey Dash a message after she suggested the month be done away with.
“If we don’t want segregation, then we need to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards, and the [NAACP] Image Awards, where you’re only awarded if you’re black,” she said during a recent interview. “It’s a double standard,” Dash added. “Just like there shouldn’t be a Black History Month. We’re American, that’s it.”
Several celebrities addressed Dash’s comments and a number of fans labeled the star as ignorant. These kids also responded to the celebrity’s suggestion in a cute video message. “Is that even legal,” one child asked. Others explained, “Black History Month is our time… to acknowledge our strength, our accomplishments and our contributions and our beauty!” Everyone agreed that cancellation isn’t happening anytime soon. “So you’ll have to rock with us for 29 days.”
