Academy Awards

(Ep. 231) #TSRP “You See That Hill, I’m Going To Die There”

On Episode 231 of #TSRP We don’t have many segments, in fact, we’ve got one topic to talk about, and that’s Kevin Hart, and the reason why he’s no longer hosting the Oscars. But this particular episode isn’t just about Kevin Hart, it’s about the culture surrounding us that makes us believe that Kevin Hart, and his non-apology apology is OK, and that he did absolutely nothing wrong, and will stand up loud and wrong defending homophobia, and bigotry, while believe that we can’t be participants in said homophobia and bigotry. Whole lot of preaching going onto say the least on episode 231 of The Spann Report!

Stacey Dash: It’s Official, You Are A Troll

Stacey Dash seldom finds herself in the news lately about her acting abilities. Her most notable role to date, arguably has been the role of Dionne in the movie, and subsequent TV series, “Clueless.” No one could have foreseen how appropriate that name would be years later in describing Stacey Dash as she has reinvented herself in the public space as a regular contributor and commentator on conservative leaning “news” channel Fox News. Today while addressing the controversy surrounding a possible boycott of the Academy Awards by minority actors, actresses, directors, and producers, Dash went on the Fox News program “Outnumbered” to express the “hypocrisy” of the notion that there should be a boycott.

Dash was quoted as saying.

“We have to make up our minds. Either we want to have segregation or integration. And if we don’t want segregation, then we need to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the Image Awards where you’re only awarded if you’re black. If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms. It’s a double standard.”

She elaborates more in the video below.

And of course she wasn’t met with the friendliest of reactions from the black community.

But despite the backlash, Dash is holding firm in her stance.

Never mind that Ms. Dash seems to have either forgotten, or simply never learned WHY these institutions are a thing to begin with, (ie. Forced segregation, and lack of inclusion by mainstream entities.) To a large degree, at this point, it’s as if she doesn’t care. And it’s that lack of care that makes her a troll.

The Spann Report (Episode 101) “Nobody’s Distracted”

On Episode 101 of #TSRP Mr. Spann is joined by friend of the show, and Comedienne Correy Boyd-Bell as we talk about how she got into comedy. Some to the things she’s learned about the grind that is being a comedian, and what she has planned for the future. Also, we’ll discuss Jada Pinkett’s call to boycott the Oscars, (Or did she?) and Janet Hubert’s super petty response. Cher helps with the Flint Water Crisis, while Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson questions the seriousness of the situation. And following the celebration of MLK Day, amidst a rising chorus of entertainers calling for a boycott of the Oscars, Stacey Dash opines that we should get rid of the BET Awards, the BET channel itself, even Black History month. We’ve got listener feedback and more, this week on The Spann Report!
