Freeman makes some excellent points but should expect to be attacked for his views by the groups calling themselves the black community.

Reference Bill Cosby.

He's one of the great actors of the modern day era ... and a highly intelligent and wise man who gets it.

So of course he is a target for criticism ...

Heard an AA gentleman call in to the Brad 'n Britt show (local Triad area NC show) and mentioned that he has to be discreet about his political preferences, and got a LOT of flak for not blindly supporting Democrats from his own family members.

He is completely correct. I thank him for saying it. I wish others would listen.

Long as we see skin tone and refer to each other by that we will have racism

Default Morgan Freeman says "Don't talk about racism"

Do you agree or disagree with his statement.
I personally think Black history month and discussing racism is a very good idea. Two of my favorite professors in college who happen to be black would frequently talk about institutional racism and redlining.

Thank you Morgan Freeman!
Finally, a real man and not a crying little baby.
Oh but then what will be left to try and destroy the right?
They have found a way to throw their hate around and it will be gone.
They will be empty Morgan, then what will they do?
American history, thank you.

No. Talking about racism and celebrating black history month is not being a "crying little baby."
