    Default Morgan Freeman Says US Doesn't Have a Black President

    Morgan Freeman says US doesn't have a black prez



    Morgan Freeman has one of the best, most recognizable voices in Hollywood. The words that come out of his mouth always sound amazing — even if what he says is totally from another planet. In an interview with NPR, Freeman expressed his opinion about Barack Obama's heritage, saying that he's not black enough to be America's first black president. "Barack had a mama and she was white, very white American, Kansas, middle of America," Freeman said. He later added, "America's first black president hasn't arisen yet ... [Obama] is America's first mixed-race president." Freeman also criticized the Republican Party for "purposely [thwarting]" Obama. Morgan, how 'bout sticking to words that other people write for you?

    He's suggesting Obama's mother was provincial? A woman who grew up all over the US and spent a good chunk of her adult life living in Indonesia? Yeah. She had no clue about the world outside of Kansas.

    Sorry he's not black enough for you, Morgan. Maybe you should focus more on the qualities that make a man a good leader. I don't think skin colour is one of them.

    Heard this from black folks all my life. It's a real warm feeling to know you're not accepted by the group of people you were sure would accept you. But I guess everyone has to learn that lesson. Kind of the catalyst that sends you on your path of self discovery.

    What a fucking idiot. VERY white? What the hell is that suppose to mean? President Obama identifies himself as African-American. That is good enough for me. I didn't know you had to meet a percentage to call yourself black.

    Shut up and go fuck your granddaughter.

    My neighbor, who is a black woman, said she felt a little cheated that he wasn't "all black", but she said she it's a start. I can see how she feels that way.

    His DNA isn't 100% black which isn't good enough for Mr Freeman! It's so ridiculous.

    I wish people would drop the whole obsession with how Pres. Obama chooses to identify.

    Race is a social construct, period, so it's ridiculous that people try to make it out to be a matter of percentages and pick boxes to stuff people into if they don't choose that box for themselves.

    Obama responds by saying that Morgan Freeman is a dirty granddaughter-shagger
    I smile because I have no idea what's going on

    Not really, unfortunately. If anything, his election bought a lot of pent-up racial frustration among many people. And of course there are those who credit his white side with his achievements and accomplishments because there are many people out there who think that all blacks are inferior, violent, lazy and stupid. Think about all the reports of people emailing and forwarding pictures of him and his family looking like monkeys or the inevitable watermelon and fried chicken jokes.

    I know of a few "blacker than thou" militants who feel that Obama is only "black-american by default" because of his upbringing and he wasn't a direct descendant of the slave trade.

    What can I say? People suck...
