A stand on Racism in America
Actor Morgan Freeman has a solution to the problem of racism – "Stop talking about it!" "I am going to stop calling you a white man and I'm going to ask you to stop calling me a black man," he says. "I know you as Mike Wallace. You know me as Morgan Freeman. You wouldn't say, 'Well, I know this white guy named Mike Wallace.' You know what I'm saying?"
The actor also criticizes Black History Month, saying setting aside a special month actually segregates black history from American history. Calling the idea "ridiculous," Freeman notes there's no "white history month."
"You're going to relegate my history to a month?" Freeman asks Wallace. "I don't want a black history month. Black history is American history," he says.
Its funny thats its accompanied by an article blaming White people for global warming
A study released by the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation
suggests rising temperatures will kill more black citizens than whites in the U.S., while claiming African-Americans are less responsible than others for causing so-called "global warming."
The new report for the CBCF has three main findings:
1. America's black population will be disproportionately burdened by the health effects of global warming;
2. Blacks are less responsible for contributing to global warming than other Americans; and
3. Policies designed to mitigate global warming can generate large health and economic benefits for blacks, depending on their implementation.
The study alleges responsibility for the problem does not lie primarily with blacks, stating, "African-American households emit 20 percent less carbon dioxide than white households.
More than 70 percent of blacks live in urban areas which are in violation of federal air pollution standards, according to the report. Thus, more blacks than whites would likely be affected by higher concentrations of toxins in the air.
