When I spoke out on Fox News and on my blog about the need to get rid of BET and Black History Month, all the same usual Twitter haters came out of the woodwork to troll me and say all sorts of disgusting things about me.
The same trolls who attacked me when I endorsed Mitt Romney came out and called me all sorts of things, many of which I can’t even say here. Well, if you’re going to call me ignorant, stupid, and an Uncle Tom, you need to be intellectually honest and also call out Morgan Freeman.
What’s that you say? You didn’t realize that Morgan Freeman agrees with me that having a Black History Month is actually racist and a part of the problem in healing race relations in America?
Well, listen to this interview from years back with Mike Wallace on 60 Minutes:
Damn straight, Morgan Freeman! PREACH IT!
It’s time we decide as a society whether we want to care about race or not. Like Morgan Freeman says, there is no White History Month and there should be no Black History Month. Black history IS American history.
We all have names that have nothing to do with our race. And the reason America is the best country in the world is because our national identity isn’t based on race, religion, or class. It’s based on principles like all men and women being created equal and everyone having the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
You want racial healing and reconciliation? You want true equality?
Listen to Morgan Freeman – Stop. Talking. About. Race.
Like I said… so when do the Twitter trolls apologize to me?
I’ll wait right here.
