"I don’t want a black history month. Black history is American history." – Morgan Freeman
In a recent interview on CBS ’60 Minutes’, Morgan Freeman stated says the concept of a month dedicated to black history is "ridiculous" and racist. He believes giving black history only one month is not right.
Freeman notes there is no "white history month," and says the only way to get rid of racism is to "stop talking about it."
The actor says he believes the labels "black" and "white" are an obstacle to beating racism.
"I am going to stop calling you a white man and I’m going to ask you to stop calling me a black man," Freeman says.
