Morgan Freeman and I agree...end of the world is near

--posted by Tony Garcia on 12/16/2005

Morgan Freeman and I agree on a race issue...the end of the world is near or hell has frozen over.
Morgan Freeman says the concept of a month dedicated to black history is "ridiculous."

"You're going to relegate my history to a month?" the 68-year-old actor says in an interview on CBS' "60 Minutes" to air Sunday (7 p.m. EST). "I don't want a black history month. Black history is American history."

Black History Month has roots in historian Carter G. Woodson's Negro History Week, which he designated in 1926 as the second week in February to mark the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln.

Woodson said he hoped the week could one day be eliminated - when black history would become fundamental to American history.

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.
Nice to have you abord the Common Sense Tour, Morgan. Morgan, meet Bill Cosby. Together we WILL fix the race issues.

The answer is to end this idea of labeling everyone. African-American, Asian-American, Mexican-American...the names don't unite and the names create division between the differing segments. It fragments Americans. Just accept that we are all Americans. We all have histories that contribute to American history and that is the end of it.

Race relations will get better after that.
