Morgan Freeman played God on the big screen. Of course, he also played on the PBS series, “The Electric Company”. Needless to say, the 85-year-old actor has seen his share of trials and tribulations. unlike many of his younger contemporaries, Freeman is old enough to remember real racism.
The racism that todays generation and the mainstream media complain about pales in comparison to the rest of the world, or even America just a few decades ago. We have made great strides to ensure that all Americans are treated equally, even if the left doesn’t want anyone to know.
Morgan Freeman, the legendary Hollywood actor has long been outspoken about race and equality. Check this out.
The actor spoke with U.K. newspaper, the Sunday Times, and went after the fake inclusivity behind BHM and “African American” as a title.
“Two things I can say publicly that I do not like. Black History Month is an insult. You’re going to relegate my history to a month?” Freeman said.
“Also, ‘African-American’ is an insult,” Freeman added; which is sure to stir controversy.
“I don’t subscribe to that title. Black people have had different titles all the way back to the n-word and I do not know how these things get such a grip, but everyone uses ‘African-American.’ What does it really mean?”
He added, “Most black people in this part of the world are mongrels. And you say Africa as if it’s a country when it’s a continent, like Europe.”

Freeman once famously told 60 Minutes that the best way to defeat racism is to stop talking about it. He is correct. we are all Americans, and at the end of the day just want to live our lives and enjoy the American dream. The left wants us divided. Freeman isn’t playing into that nonsense.
Freeman didn’t denounce a need for inclusivity as much as he questioned the actual impact of celebrating Black History Month. Similar to Pride Month’s effect on entertainment and media, BHM has turned into a metric for companies to display how “inclusive” they are every February.
Brands like the NBA tout their Black History Month activism, but their messaging entirely focuses on racism in America rather than uplifting Black achievement. It has turned into a month about political messaging over celebrating the heritage.
We should all be proud of our heritage, but at the same time remember that we all share a common theme; we are Americans. We should all want what is best for our country, and division isn’t it.
The younger generation needs to take their cues from people like Morgan Freema. People that have actually experienced racism, discrimination and oppression. Todays generation has been spoiled, coddled, and convinced by the left and the media that they are victims.
A quick look around the world and you can see what a real victim looks like. In America we aren’t cutting the heads of gay people or relegating minorities as second class citizens. hopefully people will listen to freeman, and common sense can begin to make a comeback.
