Skip to comments.Morgan Freeman: No Black President For U.S. Yet (white mama disqualifies)

He was especially interested in talking about President Obama, and why Freeman thinks he should not be called America's first black president.
"First thing that always pops into my head regarding our president is that all of the people who are setting up this barrier for him ... they just conveniently forget that Barack had a mama, and she was white very white American, Kansas, middle of America," Freeman said. "There was no argument about who he is or what he is. America's first black president hasn't arisen yet. He's not America's first black president he's America's first mixed-race president."
Many of Freeman's films explore important chapters of African-American history: Amistad was about the trans-Atlantic slave trade; Driving Miss Daisy was set in the civil rights era; and Glory centered on an all-black regiment in the Civil War.

Fine. If we must apply labels, then someone get Allen West to satisfy their requirements.
So are the libs going to call Morgan Freeman a racist? I wanna see some red on red damnit!
As far as I know, they all come from two black parents. How would that suit you, Morgan?
Disowned by black folks now? Poor Barry. I think that since his baby daddy was Malcolm X, he should be, I dont know , what ? 5/8 black?
Moran Freeman said he would vote for Obozo, ‘If I Could Vote for Him 1000 Times, I Would’, I use to like this nitwit.
See also Chris Matthews convoluted take:
If theres one person who can always be trusted to delicately handle the subject of President Obamas race, its Chris Matthews. And on his show today, he proved how nuanced and restrained he can be on this topic by saying that in 2008, Obama was positioning himself as more of a white candidate with references to his immigrant roots, and how that meant he was walking back being black in that race.
The subject of the segment was how Obamas racial identity has shaped his personal and political life. The Washington Posts David Maraniss explained that since Obama is only half-white and half-black, white America just really wants to know why he identifies as black. Matthews helpfully observed that throughout American history, if youre one drop black, youll become black.
Matthews highlighted a section in Maraniss book about the president where Obama once told an old girlfriend he was an imposter because while identifying as black, he was so white [and] there was hardly a black bone in his body. Maraniss explained when Obama was in New York for a few years, he really didnt make any black friends. Matthews then turned to the 2008 election and how Obama seemingly did sort of a racial double-take in that race.
I’ve said that all along. He’s mulatto, damit!.
A lot of racist white folk voted for the mulotto thinking
he would actually help the black and whites unite.
Boy were they wrong.
How many blacks even think of his very white whacked out mamma...or equate his black side as being pure Muslim.
And ya know what DH Freeman......After what this mixed ass clown and his merry band of Marxists have pulled, you’ll never ever see the rise of your 1st black President....So get over it......
So they don’t want to claim this one either? I can understand.
So they have disowned Bill Clinton. He feels their pain and to be honest he actually seems more black to me than the intellectual commie Obama.
Why, EVERYBODY knows, that Bill Clinton was the first black President. He said so himself.
Just because ol’ Billie Jeff was a little challenged in the melanin department, shouldn’t be anything to hold against him. What the heck, he MIGHT be an albino.
I used to like him, as an actor, too. Nice voice.
I wouldn’t pay $$$ to see this dumbard or any of his Leftist actor friends ever again.
Moron Freeman, buh-bye. Nobody, except you racist, Liberal arseholes ever cared about Barry’s breeding background.
“He’s not America’s first black president he’s America’s first mixed-race president”.
Better not tell that to the 95% of the black population who voted for Obama because he was black.
He’s half black, half white and all red. Marxist bastard!
99% of American blacks are mixed race but his momma was no ordinary midwest girl.
That remind me of the old kid’s riddle: What’s black and white and red all over?
