Oscars host Chris Rock kept the focus on race

Writer and producer Shonda Rhimes threw major shade Dash's way:

Lots of non-famous people did, too. Dash seemed bothered exactly none at all.

"There are a lot of people that don't agree with me and have a lot of very mean things to say .. which a lot of people in my life will use against me," she says in the clip posted to her page. "I do what I do because I want to do it. It has nothing to do with race.. I believe we are all equal.. I don't feel inferior and nor do I feel superior. You should stop feeling that way. That's my suggestion."

Here's her post-Oscars performance:
