Nothing wrong with that — but Monday was also February 1, AKA the first day of Black History Month, a very important and visible month in the NBA.

When the Kings' star forward DeMarcus Cousins got to the arena and saw the shirt last night, he immediately spoke up!

Stacey Dash Claims She & Morgan Freeman Feel The Same Way About Black History Month — & Even Shares A Video To Support Her Story!

Filed under: Morgan FreemanControversy

Stacey says she's not alone!

Stacey Dash is not backing down!

After the 49-year-old said on FOX & Friends last week that BET and Black History Month should be eliminated, she got a lot of negative feedback, especially from her fellow celebrities.

But the Clueless alum believes there's one famous figure who has her back… Morgan Freeman!

In a blog post she penned on Monday, the actress explained that she's gotten a lot of hate on Twitter regarding her controversial comments, writing:

"When I spoke out on Fox News and on my blog about the need to get rid of BET and Black History Month, all the same usual Twitter haters came out of the woodwork to troll me and say all sorts of disgusting things about me."

But the scandalized star wanted to point out to everyone who was sh*tting on her that she allegedly isn't the only one who thinks this.

She claimed that the amazing actor feels the same way she does, and that he should also be sharing some of the backlash, adding:

"Well, if you're going to call me ignorant, stupid, and an Uncle Tom, you need to be intellectually honest and also call out Morgan Freeman."

And the FOX News panelist even supplied a video she hopes will support her statement, in which the Shawshank Redemption actor discusses Black History Month with the late Mike Wallace on 60 Minutes, sharing:

"What's that you say? You didn't realize that Morgan Freeman agrees with me that having a Black History Month is actually racist and a part of the problem in healing race relations in America? Well, listen to this interview from years back with Mike Wallace on 60 Minutes."

Stacey Dash is not ready to back down!

Many people were outraged following the Clueless alum's thoughts about eliminating the BET channel, the NAACP Image Awards, and Black History Month. Merp!

ICYMI: The 49-year-old was brought on to Fox & Friends to talk about Hollywood's lack of diversity — which has been a major topic of conversation ever since the Oscar nominations featured only white performers.

Whoopi Goldberg Takes Stacey Dash To School! Watch The View Host Explain EXACTLY Why Getting Rid Of BET & Black History Month Is Wrong!

She's finally saying something we agree with!

Like most of the cast of The View this season, Whoopi Goldberg has spent the last few months saying some pretty controversial things — which may or may not have helped the ratings for the ABC daytime talk show.

To this day she's still sticking up for Bill Cosby for some reason, but luckily we are a united front when it comes to our opinions on Stacey Dash.

As you've probably heard, after the Oscars failed to nominate a single person of color in any of the acting categories this year, Jada Pinkett Smith proudly suggested that her fellow POCs boycott the awards show.

Always the contrarian, Stacey saw this as an opportunity to suck up to her FOX & Friends audience by flipping the situation and suggesting that having events like the BET Awards and Black History Month are just as racist as #OscarsSoWhite.

Thankfully, Whoopi was there to point out that minority communities are important because they're some of the only ways for people to actually learn about their own cultures.

Also, love her for trying, but Paula Faris just looks so awkward trying to prove she knows anything about black history. LOLz!

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!!!

Jeopardy! College Contestants Avoided An African-American History Category?! You Be The Judge! Watch The Controversial Video HERE!

Filed under: TV NewsGIFs

It’s College Championship Week on Jeopardy!

And it also happens to be Black History month!

So the producers of the long-running game show thought they would include a category of African-American History during February 17th’s broadcast.

The only problem was, the three caucasian contestants on the show that day apparently didn’t want anything to do with those clues!

As you can see in the pic above, the category went UNTOUCHED throughout the entire Double Jeopardy round until all of the other answers had been questioned!

Apparently these college students knew more about animals in New Zealand than they did about black people in America, since they opted to tackle that topic first!

Yeah, the Kiwi Fauna category went before the African-American one!

The internet erupted following the telecast with some suggesting there was some slight racism being served up on the program!

But Texas A&M contestant Tucker Pope says he and his fellow players just wanted to move left to right across the board! He explained:
