Dash told Fox and Friends host Steve Doocy, “We have to make up our minds. Either we want to have segregation or integration, and if we don’t want segregation, then we have 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,”

After joking around about Stacey Dash's relevance, Union went on to speak about representation in the entertainment industry:

"It's like why there's a need for The Birth of a Nation and why there's a need for the Country Music Awards and the ALMA [American Latino Media] Awards — if you don't see yourself reflected in mainstream awards, you tend to create your own. And until there's no longer a need for that, I celebrate the ALMAs the same way I celebrate the Country Music Awards and the same way I celebrate the BET Awards and the [NAACP] Image Awards, which we'll all be at in a couple weeks."
