Posted on 02/22/2012 8:22:44 AM PST by CaptainKrunch
In a 60 Minutes interview with Mike Wallace several years ago, black actor Morgan Freeman displayed unusual wisdom for Hollywood when he said that the way to end racism in America is to stop talking about it. Not long thereafter, (half-) black candidate Barack Obamas ascension to the White House confirmed that race is no barrier to success in America (apparently neither is incompetence). But instead of ushering in a post-racial era as many hoped, Obamas presidency has ramped up racial tensions and driven his black Hollywood supporters to talk about racism more than ever before among them, sadly, Morgan Freeman.
Obamas administration has been anything but post-racial. From Attorney General Eric Holders refusal to prosecute Black Panther thugs, to Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lees charge that Tea Partiers are the new KKK, to the Presidents own insult of the police officers who properly arrested his academic buddy Henry Louis Gates, Jr., its been payback time for those blacks who wear their racialism on their sleeve and yet hypocritically dismiss their critics as racist.
Including some blacks in Hollywood. Even the once-wise actor Freeman ignored his own earlier advice and claimed recently that the Tea Party is a racist thing representing the weak, dark underside of America:
Their stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term. What underlines that? Screw the country. Were going to whatever we can to get this black man outta here.
This conveniently ignores the fact that it is Obama who is doing whatever he can to screw the country, and the Tea Party is justifiably as mad as hell and not going to take this anymore. Freemans assumption seems to be that if the President were white, his critics would be just fine with his destructive policies, and all opposition would fade away.

Why the picture of Samuel L. Jackson with an excerpt that talks about with Morgan Freeman?
If 96% of white American voters voted for a white candidate when there were both a black and a white candidate running, one might say there was a racial problem in America.
Interesting how obvious racism looks from that perspective, eh?
How can you tell if someone is racist?
They are white.
Its endemic to their race.
Guess they really do all look alike. LOL
Here's the part of the story talking about Samuel L. Jackson's racism:
>>Fellow black actor Samuel L. Jackson echoed Freemans unjust assessment of the Tea Party:
Its pretty obvious what they are. The division of the country is not about the government having too much power Its not politics. It is not economics. It all boils down pretty much to race. It is a shame.
Yes, it is a shame. Its a shame that fame gives Obama apologists like Jackson a platform to spout racist ignorance. In an interview for Ebony magazine, Jackson revealed who the real racist is:
I voted for Barack because he was black. Cuz thats why other folks vote for other people because they look like them Thats American politics, pure and simple. [Obama's] message didnt mean [expletive] to me.
Pause for a moment to consider the media outrage if Jon Voight or another of the few openly conservative white actors in Hollywood had said, I voted for John McCain in the last election because hes white. His policies were completely irrelevant. Thats the American way. His publicist would rush him into the obligatory public apology tour and racial sensitivity re-education camp, and that actors career would still be over. But a black actor admits to the mirror opposite of that and it barely registers a blip on the media radar.<<
