    That's really all there is to it, color is color and nothing more. When we group whites and blacks it spawns racism. If you won't notice race then how can you be racist. It'd better to just forget the labels white and black and that we're people, and then what makes things worse is that people who would "stand for the blacks" would also want to attack the whites and everyone is still being labeled off of what is just an adaptive trait

    Stop talking about racism, and quit throwing the race card to get out of trouble! People who ARE actual victims of racism almost always get ignored just as often as actual rape/sexual harassment victims. It's a sad world we live in now.

    There are no Black people, no White people, there are no barriers, there is only humanity, humanity is the only race of people in the world.

    This man has wisdom that has been Lost in our new generation, and soon it will be gone forever. This man makes sense yet so many people are so blind to see what's right and what's wrong. Just talk to Morgan Freeman for 5 mins so he can school your ass. If you listen then maybe you'll learn something

    Stop talking about? 🙄....if there's is a serial killer in your town and you want them to stop, do you just stop looking for them? 🤔....Racism is not something that will just go away. Talking about it is the only way to manage and combat it.

    I don't like Black History Month. If people really care about honoring black leaders, they should honored them every days. I understand that us black people have been mistreated and a month honoring black leaders are needed, but this is stupid. Honoring black leaders should be a every days thing, not an one month thing.

    Talib Kweli narrated a movie about this some time ago where he echoed Morgan Freeman's thoughts here.....and I agreed with him on that issue because it made sense. But, then I got in a Twitter spat with him because he called Ben Shapiro a racist without any evidence besides the fact that Ben's a white conservative. So I called him out on it and he fired back lol.....ohh Twitter

    The point of black history month is to give light to black accomplishments over the years. This Jim Crow uncle Ruckus mentality had us convinced that all black people was poor and uneducated working under the Qhite man. What I appreciate about BH month is it tells kids that great people of the past are as brown as they are. Really dosappointed in Mr. Freeman,such a naive and idiotic answer.

    Race isn’t skin color anyway, it’s genetics and genetics says all of us, no matter the ethnicity or culture, all of us are one race- HUMAN. Skin color (and eye color) are controlled by pigment which according to science is NOT a determining factor for race. Boom scienced! Love you Mr. Freeman, you sir are amazing!

      +Henry Stanley he recently jumped on the victimhood bandwagon that dominates Hollywood which was sad because the only way to end racism is truly to stop talking about it! Instead the US went the other way and now it's worse it's regressive which is ironic because the sheeple think they are actually being progressive by carrying a chip on their shoulder. But Black lies matter especially when repeated by white dudes like Shaun King.

    The irony behind Black History Month, yet no other race celebrates their history in any given month. I believe that it was only given to manipulate the minds of people to only focus on black history in only one month. This does nothing but separate us from American history as if theirs two “Separate” histories. Black History is American history period.

    Comments section full of oblivious dolts. Have you honestly never seen 60 Minutes or a Mike Wallace interview? They've rehearsed and went over these questions in advance, people. Wallace knows what he's going to say. He's a brilliant interviewer, and these guys are friends. Wallace is purposely playing along with the line of questioning in a predicable way (how the average person would respond) because he agrees with Morgan Freeman and wants to help him make his point.

    I heard him say that he is jew-ish but know this that ish is a suffix that was added to the word Jew. There is no such thing as Jewish in the Bible and many of your so call preachers will not speak on this. When we talk about ish It means to be similar or identical but it doesn't mean you are a Jew. You are jew-ish which means you wish you were a Jew. The so called afro Americans are the Jews the Bible speak of Jeremiah 14: verse 2 says Judah mourneth and the gates thereof languish they are black unto the ground and the cry of Jerusalem is gone up. For those who say they are jew-ish are imposters. Yeshua said in Revelation 2: verse 9 I know thy works and tribulation and poverty but thou are rich and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews and are not but are the synagogue of Satan.

    Pure wisdom from Morgan Freeman. People generally fail to understand that whatever we focus on will manifest into reality. The media know this and manipulate the fuck out of the masses by having them focus on nothing but negativity, to consolidate the power of the ruling class and eliminate potential competition. Divide and rule, oldest trick in the book.

    To those people who seem a tad confused with Freeman’s “Stop talking about it”. He’s not saying acts of racism should be ignored, or that racism isn’t a issue. He’s trying to say that WE need to stop seeing people of different color as any bit superior or inferior. Stop living in this mindset where it’s ‘US v. THEM’ and that skin color defines who you are or how society should treat you. It always goes both ways and living with this mindset that blacks are the victims and the whites are the privileged (or EVEN the other way around) would only create more racism and divide within a community. Stop thinking that you’re a victim and that the other person with different skin is privileged. Just because your ancestors were bonded in chains or not doesn’t define who YOU are, and no one owes you anything for what has happened in the past. The best thing we can do is move on and continue to respect and treat others fairly even if a few don’t treat you the same.

    I always imagine a baby in a nursery. There are black babies, white babies, they don’t care about any of these crap. When they grow up suddenly the white baby has to pay for what he did to the black baby. Can you start to feel me on how insane all of this is?
    Different races suffered throughout history, that’s why history is important to learn and don’t repeat the same mistakes, that’s it!
    You start to penalise the white baby for crimes he didn’t commit in this generation than you are instigating for a Race War.
    All equal, no advantages to any “race”, bring people together, start talking as human race, cut the bs victimisation crap and that’s when you start to walk towards the future.
    All of this black month, women day etc is just playing one against each other.
    The Art of War - Sun Tzu
    Divide and Conquer, that’s what these diabolical creatures are doing. They pretend to be nice while giving some advantages and others none, they want War. Simple as that, all you got to do is wake the fok up and stop this nonsense.
    Don’t talk about it best advice ever! Everything will heal in time.

    The color of one’s skin never once crossed my mind until I learned what racism was. I never once made an observation about how someone’s skin is darker than another’s. Everybody was different to me. Then once I was told what racism was, and it was shoved down my face, only then did I call myself a black person. Seriously, the only reason racism still exists is because we keep discussing it.

    Morgan Freeman is a very well spoken man. I definitely agree with his views about not wanting a Black history month because it's American history. On the Sunday evening CBS TV talk show 60 Minutes .Morgan Freeman did a very candid interview with Mike Wallace. Mike asked him about racism and he said stop talking about it. I do somewhat agree. Getting rid of the problem of racism by ignoring won't just simply go away. Especially in the United States of America and the rest of the world.

    . Mike added to another question to Morgan Freeman about race and ethnicity. He don't see me as a Black man and I won't see you as a White man. Mike Wallace told Morgan Freeman he is Jewish. Morgan knows how the race and ethnicity is looked at in this society. For many years seeing the famous journalist Mike Wallace you wouldn't know he is Jewish. I respect what Morgan Freeman said. About stop looking him as a Black man. Unfortunately we live in a society where people see you as you. Especially when you're Black. All they have to do is look at us.

    I just read an article saying that there's no ''white history month'' cause whites are celebrated everyday and of course didn't explain how that happens. it's typical of those people saying things without elaborating on it. cause they have no real argument. the simply lack of disadvantage is not an advantage. And what to say about the Irish? they are whites too! are they being celebrated everyday? they had a past of indentured servitude which was like slavery, but temporarily. Where's their month? They don't qualify because they don't have dark skin color?
