FREEMAN: "Mitch McConnell. Their stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term. What’s, what does that, what underlines that? “Screw the country. We’re going to whatever we do to get this black man, we can, we’re going to do whatever we can to get this black man outta here.”

MORGAN: "But is that necessarily a racist thing?"

FREEMAN: "It is a racist thing."

So now the Presidential election itself is racist because the GOP will run a candidate against obama. The election should be canceled and obama just given another 4 years. I love Freemans movies, but this is nuts.

Morgan, we would want him out no matter the color of his skin. Can we please stop calling him “black” since he had a white mother? Why do blacks even want to claim this guy, seeing what he has done to the real black community?

My objective in the upcoming election is to get this ignorant arise out of office. I could care less about his ethnicity; I care about what he is doing to our country. If Freeman doesn’t understand this, then screw him.

Since evidence that Obama is a walking disaster to America is clear, I have no choice but recognize that Morgan Freeman's continued support of Obama is, in itself, racist.

There is racism in the electorate, but it is the 99% of blacks who will blindly vote for a fellow black man.

This interview really demonstrated that Freeman is a really stupid person and that Piers Morgan is a lousy interviewer. when Freeman said that tea party was racist, Morgan didn’t challenge him to produce any example of why he believed this. He simply didn’t put upon Freeman to produce the facts.

By definition, the only reason anyone voted for Obama was that they consider him black. Along comes a Hollywood racist to emphasize that. Thanks chessplayer.

I have long since come to the conclusion that most actors are only lovable when someone is writing their lines for them, powdering their noses for them, coaxing them into the occasional bathtub, getting them to work on time, and leading them away from the open bar at the afterparty before they make asps of themselves. It’s a rare actor who doesn’t, when given the chance, make you understand immediately why producers call them “meat with eyes.” Remember, if you see a successful actor, you are looking at someone who was willing to sleep with whomever they had to, back in the day. That’s the personality type who gets to the top in L.A. ... attractive, charismatic, stupid-but-cunning, and sexually available to powerful people. (P.S., I live in West Hollywood. I do believe myself to be speaking the truth.)

Fatherfig: I don’t like Obama’s politics. I don’t like his policies. I could give a crap what his color is.

Freeman: He’s black. I’m black. The world is racist.

Who’s right?

Obama is an incompetent who happens to be black
whereas, Jimmie Carter is an incompetent who happens to be white.

We need to frame this on the man's job and behavior which has been unbelievably poor, IMO.

Bump.

Freeman is down on McConnell simply because McConnell’s white. (See how easy that is, Freeman?)

I have not seen one one Tea Party member stand up and say we need to get rid of Obama because he is black.

They say we need to get rid of him based on his policy goals.

So now Morgan slanders the Tea Party members for being racists, when he’s the real racist.

The Tea Party members couldn’t be racist (in Morgan’s mind) if they were Black, so he obviously considers them to be White. And in his mind, the only reason they would want to get rid of Obama, is the color of his skin.

That’s a racist charge, without foundation leveled at Whites.

Morgan, get that post our of your own eye before coming to get the flecks out of ours.

I am not a racist. I believe Obama’s policies have been destructive. Therefore I want the man to be voted out. I could care less if he was neon green flashing on and off.

I wouldn’t vote against him for it. I would vote against him for being totally clueless, and I will.

Now what’s your excuse for supporting a man that has proven himself to be incapable of leading? Riddle me that Morgan.

Herman Cain would get my vote over O’BungHole in a NY minute.

So that makes me a racist?

What if I voted for Herman Cain over VP BiteMe? Would that make me racist too?

I’m so confused. Maybe I should judge people on the content of their character inste instead of the color of their skin.

Oh. Never mind.

Had a white Democrat candidate been elected in 2008 (Hillary), they could not have pushed the liberal agenda nearly as hard as Obama did.

His ethnicity gave him a pass.

I reject that premise wholeheartedly- shame on them and they will reap the harvest of the ill-conceived ruse shortly!

Let the chips fall where they may. No violins playing here!

Instead of working the stalls in the men's washroom at the local Greyhound bus station, Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman should have taken a timeout and watched the recent GOP Debates where he might have seen Herman Cain up on stage with all those white folks.

I can sort of understand where Morgan is comming from.

George H. W. Bush Lost his second term due to The exact same type of RACISM as what hussein is dealing with now.
It had absolutely nothing to do with anything else except pure RACISM, Period.

Jimmy Carter lost his second term the same way, PURE RACISM.
Nothing to due with his policy’s and EVERTHING TO DO WITH THE COLOR OF HIS SKIN!

What kind of Civilization are we anyways?
Makes me sick.

You know, I understand that Morgan is an older guy. He lived through the whole '60's civil rights thing. He's a fantastic actor and obviously an intelligent man. It's just a crying damn shame that he has such a myopic, one-way view as to the way things are, circa 2011. He doesn't realize how much weight his words would carry if he spoke to the truth, and didn't buy into that whole Tavis Smiley School of Rectal Optosis POV.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

What Morgan Freeman said is, on its face, racist. As far as Morgan goes, I will choose to think of him, fondly, as the selfless sergeant in the film Glory rather than the racist bigot I saw interviewed on that show. It is, I know, a denial of reality, but in a way sensible in that he has far more good to give to his nation and its society as an actor than as a commentator on the social/political scene. It is a pity that the media and most actors cannot see that. What a shame that so gifted a man makes himself such a fool.

And many, many, blacks here, of course, far and away the majority, don't seem to have a racist bone in their bodies.
