    See the jew squirm when you call him out. Notice he made it clear that he was not white but jewish. Thought jews consider themselves white? Guess it is only when it's convenient for them.

    Oh my God, I understand MF 100%. I've always wanted people to see me just as a human being - not as a Hispanic person, or by my sexuality or by the color of my skin, etc. Amen, Mr. Freeman.

    Mr. Freeman's response is similar to something Denzel Washington said after the 2016 election, "You know, race relationships have to do with race relationships. You’re white or whatever you are. I’m black or whatever I am. We are standing here talking now - that’s how we get things done. You can’t legislate love. The president of the United States can’t legislate us into liking each other. We have to step forward and ask questions about each other and engage. There’s no law that says, ‘Oh, because I’m president you all got to get along now.’ So it’s up to us.” So when I hear, "Stop talking about it. I'm gonna stop calling you a white man and I'm gonna ask you to stop calling me a black man." I could not agree more with that approach. It's simply about interacting with one another on a human level and not forcing one another to think a certain way just because we have different skin pigments. It's really not rocket science. The simplest answer is usually the correct one. Just stop talking about it and converse.

    - "Why? Don't you want one?"
    - "No, no"
    - "Well, I don't either"

    That piece of dialogue should be taught and explained to little kids in every fucking school of the entire planet. THAT'S how we're going to get rid of racism: letting people be what they want to be and be nice to each other as people, not as groups. And I mean REALLY nice, not in a "yeah yeah, I'll let you have a history month but shut the fuck up" kind of way

    "Stop Talking About it?" No...I don't want a Future that DOES NOT acknowledge the Past (Black History) that our Ancestors went through. Yes, White people can't change what their ancestors did in the past and we can't fault all of them for something they had nothing to do with, But we can teach upcoming people in the future about how to build a better future with our Human Races without Hate or Prejudice. You can't do any of that without TELLING the truth about what oppressors have done to the oppressed period.

    For you, brothers, became imitators of the churches of God in Christ Jesus that are in Judea. For you suffered the same things from your own countrymen as they did from the Jews, who killed both the Lord Jesus and the prophets, and drove us out, and displease God and oppose all mankind.

    I half agree on what Mr Freeman said because a century ago none was speaking of racism and all the issues related to it , but it still existed. People should be more strong about some issues . I am immigrant who immigrated into the US few years ago and i cross xenophobic people often but i don’t take it too personal , i just accept the fact that they will exist and thats it

    There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs - partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”“I am afraid that there is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don’t want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public Booker T Washington talking about the democrat party in 1918

    I think the first part is right. I think the second part is foolish. "don't talk about it" hasn't worked out too well. never does it requires two parties to be on equal ground for it to work out. we aren't currently so it's foolish.

    I’m in TOTAL agreement with Morgan Freeman. Not only do I not understand black history month, which is surely part of human history period, I do not understand black either, I’m presently living in the Caribbean, where the majority of people descend from Africa, but I have never met a black person; a derogatory term used by the slave traders. Black hair; OK, black shoes; Sometimes, but black skin; NEVER. Do we really not see that we are all just different shades of brown. And do we not see that this is just a means to divide. America is the worst with this black & white nonsense. There is just ONE race, it’s called the human race, although very retarded it may be.

    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

  • Comics Book Awesomeness

    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.
