Morgan Freeman: Stop Talking About Race

Morgan Freeman states the obvious - if you want to end racism, stop making everything about race.

The notion of a special month for black history may be hurting rather than helping efforts for racial equality, Freeman believes. When Wallace wonders whether racist attitudes may be harder to eradicate without the education that Black History Month provides, Freeman retorts: “How are we going to get rid of racism? Stop talking about it!”

Freeman calls Black History Month, "ridiculous!"

“You’re going to relegate my history to a month?” Freeman asks Wallace. After noting there is no “white history month,” he says, “I don’t want a black history month. Black history is American history,” he tells Wallace.

This is from an old 60 Minutes - in 2005. I don't recall having seen it.
