"Black History Month" — hey, I didn't say it

Morgan Freeman did.



Gotta love anyone who leaves Mike Wallace goggling like that.

(I know, you probably already saw this. But I hadn't; so... maybe not?)

You just gotta love Morgan Freeman. Common sense from a Hollywood actor - I'm in shock.

Rachael Starke said...

Wow. I had no idea Morgan Freeman was such a racist.

/sarcasm

He needs to spend some time whipping sense into crazies like Chris Rock, who said in last Saturday's WSJ "I'm a black guy, so everything I do is black."

JustJan said...

Another reason why I love Morgan Freeman.

I like it when Morgan Freeman says stuff I can agree with. ;)

Here's one for everybody to work with: pay attention to how people describe others and realize how infrequently anybody says "This White guy came running down the street" but will always make the special effort to fill in any other color.

Even if it means absolutely nothing to the story.

When we stop pointing it out so much, it becomes a lesser issue.

CR said...

I was shocked also, Ian. Great actor that talks some sense. Wow...

Ian Hall said...

Cr - Sometimes we come across truth from the most unlikely of sources. But you know I was shocked but did you see the presenter? Boy, he was completely thrown.

CR said...

I love it, Ian, when anyone in the MSM is thrown off.

Everyday Mommy said...

Well what'dya know...plain ol' common sense.

Jon said...

WHA?! I can't believe that someone within the Hollywood elite has enough common sense to understand why there is still racism in this country!

Bravo Morgan Freeman!

Now if he'd realize that he's a sinner in need of a savior then he could really ruffle some feathers in Hollywood, even the world.

That's great.
Wallace got Pwn'd!

Can hardly wait for the H&T tommorrow.

Susan said...

Wow. I'm as speechless as Mike Wallace in that clip.

Rita Martinez said...

"Stop talking about it"
EXACTLY!!! ughhh man! finally someone who gets it!

Daniel said...

Mike Wallace is Jewish? I didn't know that White and Jewish were mutually exclusive.

I like Morgan Freeman's response, because it is right.

DJP - did you hear that FOX is picking up Narnia?

Daniel said...

DJP - doh, I just read the more recent post. I gotta work backwards less often.
