Alexandra Mayers aka Monica Foster commentary: Over the past few days, Hollywood actress Stacey Dash has been highly criticized due to her comments in regards to BET (Black Entertainment Television) and Black History month. From my perspective she’s neither right or wrong…primarily due to the fact that she’s left one vital factor out of the equation she’s presented…
…and that factor is “religion”.
Stacey Dash’s comments were prompted in part by a “Black woman” who based on appearance alone could easily be cast to play Stacey’s sister in a multitude of Tyler Perry type productions – a woman by the name of Jada Pinkett Smith. Apparently though both Jada and her husband Will have attained massive success within the mainstream Hollywood arena (an arena that Jada has labeled as “White”) – Jada still claims not to be satisfied.
Though both Jada and Stacey superficially present sound arguments on both sides of what I consider to in actuality be a manufactured issue, I personally don’t feel either Stacey or Jada can truly speak for “Black Entertainers” considering that due to their biological ethnic makeup, they both physically display as many “Caucasion” characteristics as “African”. The reality is, neither women has ever been judged by mainstream American society as that of the Black women & young girls showcased on the reality show “Bring It”.
Though Stacey & Jada do favor one another (physically), there is one major difference that I hadn’t realized until a little earlier today. While Stacey Dash is Christian, Jada Pinkett Smith is of Portuguese Jewish decent…
Though the twitter hashtage #OscarsSoWhite has gained popularity over the past few days along with the hashtag #NeverForget – it seems that mainstream media has conveniently forgotten that Hollywood’s ruling class dominated by the Jewish – specifically the Ashkenazi Jewish.
Now perhaps the Ashkenazi Jewish ruling class of mainstream Hollywood is officially “White” today, but isn’t ironic that in the days of Martin Luther King, many of the Ashkenazi Jewish lineage in America conveniently didn’t label themselves as “White”? I find it odd the the multitude of Jewish schools in existence today (comprised primarily of people of Ashkenazi Jewish decent) don’t label themselves “White” schools. If the Ashkenazi Jewish people are “White” now, then why isn’tJewish American History Month (May) also called White History month….
Makes you wonder if the media’s treatment of Stacey vs. Jada has anything to do with their religious heritage…doesn’t it?
The truth is, BET and Black History month are not Black vs. White issues. BET and Black History month are Christian vs. Jewish issues and need to be treated as such. From my perspective, no other “group” in the United States of America has encouraged separatism as aggressively as Jewish Americans. From slavery, to their schools, to their political agendas (Israel for example), to their consistent push of racial stereotypes into the mainstream media.
Fact: BET is owned by Viacom. Viacom is controlled heavily by individuals of the Jewish faith.
Fact: Jewish people heavily controlled the Transatlantic slave trade which brought Africans to America.
Fact: Jewish Americans (of Ashkenazi Jewish decent) heavily control the mainstream media, mainstream Hollywood and the pornographic industry.
I’d love to jump on the Jada bandwagon because it’s EASY (& I’m far from being a Stacey Dash fan)…however I know the truth all too well at this stage and I’m sick and tired of African-Americans being lured into acting as pawns in a religious chess game of divide and conquer.
