|1714 - Now, this guy makes sense|
While poking around Wikipedia, I came across this, in the entry on actor Morgan Freeman:
Freeman has come out publicly against the celebration of Black History Month and does not participate in any related events, saying that "I don't want a black history month. Black history is American history". He says the only way to end racism is to stop talking about it, and he notes that there is no "white history month". Freeman says "I am going to stop calling you a white man and I'm going to ask you to stop calling me a black man".
All I can say, is "Bravo!"
current mood: surprised
current music: Atlanta Rhythm Section - Champagne Jam
Yay Morgan Freeman!
Gotta love Morgan Freeman. ♥
Oh, I love it!
Wait a minute, it sounds like he's saying "Don't talk about racism and it will go away." If only it were that simple!
He doesn't want to participate in Black History Month? Fine with me. But it sounds like his logic is flawed.
