    YouTube - Morgan Freeman on Race and Black History Month


    MAN! That was the much needed breath of fresh air I've been waiting for for a long time! I love how straight and to the point he is, and how the solution really is that simple! ;) I have always been a big fan of Morgan Freeman, and always enjoyed his work. This just sent my already high opinion of him into the stratosphere.

    Agreed. He just went up several notches in my opinion.

    I'd like to see the rest of the interview. Just to see how they got on the subject and where it went from there.

    I've always liked Morgan Freeman. He is one of those guys, if he is in the movie, I'll watch it (same with John Travolta, Nicholas Cage, and Clint Eastwood). He's always been in good movies and comes off as being a one of us good guys.

    OMG I almost cried when I watched that video... I agree I want to see the whole video... I was so up in arms this past school year because unfortunately I am opinionated and I worked at a urban school with a bunch of idiots... our vice-principal was black and blew the month of February out of proportion... it was shoved in every single one of our faces... and I have no problem with the month itself... but let's not go overboard... and like Morgan Freemen stated where's everyone else's month... there's a Hispanic heritage month... our school didn't celebrate it... but in the great state of Texas over half of the students in that school speak spanish in the home... and a third of those students were born outside of the United States in a Latin country...

    why can't we all be Americans... is the fact that I hate the decisions made by our president make me a racist? Hell no... it means I'm doing my duty as a citizen and keeping track of all of our transgressions... Angie Harmon said it best

    At that same school a rumor started getting spread that I was making racist comments... when I investigated it turned out that someone had walked by while I was talking with my grade level chair (an African-American woman) about how the homelife of Hispanics and African-Americans differed and how it really changed their attitudes and their respect of elders and just their entire demeanor... somehow that got transposed into me disliking African-Americans... whatever... African-Americans will find a way to make everything into a race issue and then accuse the other side of being the racist...

    (BTW my grade level chair was agreeing with me the entire time and she was so pissed when she heard that people were saying I was making racist comments.)

    Very true and profound words.
    Words we all need to act upon and put in action!

    Knowing that we all need to act upon that and getting it to happen are too entirely different things... but yes it is something that we need to start teaching
