    Morgan Freeman is one of my favorite actors...but in this case he is slightly mis-informed....therefore I've had to knock him down a peg or two.....! :uhoh:

    To my untrained ear--at first his statements sounded like a plea for integration... :jam:

    And, then I had an epiphany... :pool:

    ---and arrived at a different conclusion...maybe he is going senile in flip opposite of Bill Cosby (i.e. rather than blaming and fingerpointing; Morgan Freeman is in social denial)...

    Separating the blaq collective from Black History is like eliminating sight from vision...

    I am going to venture to say that maybe he hasn't had the time to read up on the subject of racism and hasn't yet come across the same type of literature I have:

    Dr. Claud Anderson
    Dr. Neely Fuller, Jr.
    Dr. Frances Cress-Welsing
    Dr. Chancellor Williams
    Dr. John Henrik Clarke
    Dr. Alex Darkwah
    Dr. Cheihk Anta Diop
    Dr. Josef Ben-Jochannan
    Carl Upchurch
    and
    JA Rogers

    just to name a few....

    I kind of understand his sentiment a lil bit, but he needs to realize that his thoughts will be taken out of context in the media.

    I didn't get that impression when I heard him say what he said. To me, he basically said it's a slap in the face for black people to have only one month towards black history, when this country was built by black people. He said you don't have a white history because basically white history is celebrated everywhere you turn. On the other hand, black history is given a month and then that's it for 11 months until the start of the next February. I think a lot of people took his comment out of context.
