    I love Morgan Freeman. He should run for president. He's such a wise, kind, sincere man. He'd be great at uniting the country.

    This whole interview is bullshit. First, if Mr. Freeman was a white man, he wouldn't have been allowed to say what he said. Second, I'm not sure if he was talking about a literal bus, but if he was, there are many areas of the country and the world where the only bus you'll ever see is those yellow buses you rode in and get sick of, and outside of the states, maybe not even that. Now, maybe he wasn't talking about a literal bus, maybe he was just talking about opportunities. Many people are stuck in situations of acholism, drugs, constant fighting, or other awful situations where the only situation they can worry about is the struggle to survive. Morgan grew up in the city, where opportunities and the chance for success are always right in front of your face, and he really has lived a very privilege life.

    Saying "I can't do it" is just taking the easy way out. It may take you longer than others. It maybe harder for you than for others. Point is, it's possible.

    What Mr. Freeman is saying is basically "If you believe you can't, then you will miss every opportunity to do so." It's absolutely true and proven time and time again.

    Everyone has issues, it's the fight or flight response that determines if we use that issue to hold us back or drive us harder, many times the most successful among us had something driving them to greatness.

    I have witnessed people immigrate to this country (legally) with under 100 dollars in their pocket. through the help offered in the government assistance programs and their own steadfast commitment.... they are now doing better than me financially. No reason for me to envy them.

    I call BS on MF. Depends on your skill set and race. They let one or two in just so you can say see no racism here. That is why they use bullshit quotas instead of honesty. They are afraid to hire black people or just refuse to because they are black. Some people are just not made for this lifestyle and cannot get the help they need.

    Agree or disagree, it's much more encouraging and productive to be told "I can" than "I can't." So educate the youth by starting with this simple thing instead of telling them to be victims.

    not everyone who is born poor will end up rich or even upper middle class. but if you dont commit crime, go to school, spend wisely, get a job, you will be at least lower middle class and then your own kids will have the advantages that you never had and they will be at least on your level or most likely working class +.. then their kids will have more advantages and be upper middle class
    most people think that most wealthy people were born with money or inherited millions. Thats a complete lie. only few families have been rich for generations. In America, some begin rich and end up middle class. it happens. people move up and down the economic ladder

    White privilege is very real Morgan, and it's sad that your money and movie roles blind you from that. I hope you keep getting all the roles from the crackers you can, and also make many sprite commercials to sell us bullshit sugar pop. A black man only need to be around whites and their money for a day or two. Just look at all the black athletes. Bunch of suckers. Please don't let this old, black coon allow white people to breath easy because he makes them feel like their privilege isn't real- and that's the ONLY reason all these crackers are agreeing.

    You guys should pick someone better, and more consistent, to be your pin-up 'Uncle Tom'. This is nothing but a simple case of "I'm alright Jack, pull up the ladder", masquerading as deep social philosophy. Freeman isn't smart enough to maintain a distinction between his own identity, and his 'wise old man' type-cast.
    It's easy to make these kinds of sweeping generalisations after you've already made it. But there's no substance. To any of it. Freeman was the son of a teacher and a business owner. His opinion would carry far more weight if he had actually done what he preaches unto others. But Morgan Freeman didn't have to overcome any of those barriers which he says others can overcome so easily. So why would anyone believe him when he says it's always possible to overcome any obstacle? What is this statement based on? Not his own life experience, that's for sure.
    Furthermore, a few years ago he spoke out about the violence and harassment innocent black people face from US police forces. There's nothing intelligent about his ramblings. He can't even keep up a coherent, non-contradictory narrative from interview to interview.

    Choices and accountability can get you rich or can make you poor it up to you.

  • Miles Weinberg
    Miles Weinberg 7 months ago

    Wealth does affect wealth. When you are from a poor part of Africa you don't get as good as an education and not as many opportunities, so you don't get as rich. When you are a former slave you are poorer than the white non-slaves. When there are discrimitory laws you are poorer. When you are the son of a poor person, you tend to be poor too. Black people were slaves, they had discrimitory laws against them, they were poorer, their children are poorer. Those children are black people in america today. If a black person didn't have a poorer father or mother, then they would be equal in wealth to white people, but black people are put at a disadvantage. Todays laws aren't racist, but yesterdays were racist. And the after affect of those racist laws are still prevelent. Take a black person, have him in a rich family with equal oppertunities. Does just as well as a white person. But the black people on average aren't from the rich family with equal oppertunities.

    Anyone can find Success, but that doesn't mean everyone will. Let's not oversimplify things into half truths.
    It's like saying if you just work hard you'll be rich.... absolutely not true.
    Doing your best does not mean your best will be enough.
    If life was as simple as just try hard, then everyone would be successful.
    Work hard, work smart & let the chips fall where they may. That way at least you won't have regrets. That's the best I can come up with knowingly lying to ppl.

    Immoderate amounts Inequality make us all poorer even if you work "hard" it does not matter when The public has considerable less of the overall circulation. The middle class is crumbling, the country is in deep debt and has a trillion dollar anual déficit. And taxes are cut most for the wealthy. We are in a age similar to that before the depression of 1930s and you idiots are cheering on the elite thieves because you losers think you will win the lottery and become one of them. Wake up you are their slaves they pay you enough to just to survive to continue working like the stock animals you are. We will see who is great when the market goes to shit and your all fighting for a piece of bread while Morgan Freeman is in a bunker with his illuminati overseers and models drinking and taking the purest drugs laughing at all you blind idiots.

  • Shotgun Pete

    I love Freeman's realness and the way he wants to inspire people to do better, and I agree that everyone CAN do better. But to say "the proof is in the pudding, here we sit at the dinner table." On fucking CNN, a media outlet that has lied about WMD's to vote the country into wars where Americans lose their lives and systematically does estbalishment propaganda to keep things as they are, making the rich richer and the poor poorer. It'd be a lot easier for everyone to do better if the rules of the game weren't massively rigged against the poor and media outlets like CNN didn't systematically support that very establishment, with the very few exceptions like this one where they do bring up the ridiculous wealth inequality and invite a famous black man to support that "pull yourself up by your bootstraps" narrative. It's not that Freeman doesn't have a point, it's that his point is only half the story. You can work as hard as you want to, statistically this system breed winners and losera and there are always gonna be losers even if they try to pull themselves up by their bootstraps. You want to help people do better? Support raising the minimum wage, universal healthcare as a right, affordable college education and getting corporate money out of the political system. Start jobs programmes to fix the crumbling infrastructure and shut down tax-havens for billionaires who crashed the fucking world economy and never so much as lost their job, let alone faced jail time for their fraudulent crimes. That'll help people to do a lot better for themselves if the tax burden wasn't systematically shifted onto them and they actually earned a living wage for a fulltime job, that way they wouldn't need handouts and foodstamps.

    You have to fight for it. The vast majority of people have to fight for it, and the vast majority of people don't. It's either too much time or too much effort. It's easier to not do something difficult than to do it... to try again and again, to fail again and again, but finally succeed. If it were easy, everyone would do it and everyone would have it, but it isn't so they don't.
