“Stop talking about it. I’m going to stop calling you a white man, and I’m going to ask you to stop calling me a black man.”
“For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:26 (KJV)
In 2017, racism in America is not only alive and well, for Liberals it’s big business. If the Alt-Left didn’t play the race card, they would have no cards at all. But hey, I’m a white guy, right? What do I know?
I know that Morgan Freeman is not a white guy, he’s black. But he doesn’t want you to call him a black man, he doesn’t want Black History Month, and he doesn’t believe that racism is a deciding factor in the ability to succeed in America.
You would do well to listen to what this American has to say, it just may be the most patriotic thing you’ve ever heard. Click here to watch the video if it is not showing in this article. Otherwise, sit back and enjoy the antidote for racism in America.
Morgan Freeman, known for his roles in The Shawshank Redemption, Unforgiven, and Million Dollar Baby, made his remarks in a December 2005 interview with Mike Wallace of CBS’ 60 Minutes. In the profile of Freeman, Wallace remarked that the actor/director’s “political views are at times surprising,” and then asked Freeman, “Black History Month, you find?”
Freeman said, “Ridiculous.”
When Wallace asked, “Why?” Freeman said, “You’re going to relegate my history to a month?” The exchange continued:
Wallace: “Oh, come on.”
Freeman: What do you do with yours? Which month is white history month? No, Come on, tell me.”
Wallace: “Well, I’m Jewish.”
Freeman: “Okay. Which month is Jewish history month?”
Wallace: “There isn’t one.”
Freeman: “ Oh. Oh, why not? Do you want one?”
Wallace: “No. No.”
Freeman: “I don’t either. I don’t want a Black History Month. Black history is American history.”
Wallace: “How are we going to get rid of racism and ….”
Freeman: “Stop talking about it. I’m going to stop calling you a white man, and I’m going to ask you to stop calling me a black man. I know you as Mike Wallace. You know me as Morgan Freeman. You want to say, `Well, I know this white guy named Mike Wallace.’ You know what I’m saying?”
Freeman: “Jewish guy. I have a lot of – some of my best friends are Jewish. Okay?”
In a more recent interview, June 3, 2014, Freeman was interviewed on CNN by Don Lemon. They were discussing President Obama’s drive to make income inequality a national issue of debate. source
