Last night Stacey Dash graced the Oscars stage and proclaimed "Happy Black History Month."


Her cameo was met by near silence from the crowd, other than this small smirk from The Weekend.

Did the audience not get the irony of her proclamation? If you didn't get it let us explain: Dash should never ever be the “Academy Director of Diversity Outreach" because she infamous for anti-feminist remarks ("That's why the divorce rate is so high, women don't know how to take care of their men anymore") and comments about black history that shows she has zero race analysis ("There shouldn't be a black history month, we are Americans, period.")
