Morgan Freeman and Black History Month
Greetings Cosmic Americans!
Well - it is February 1st, which means it is officially Black History Month. I thought I would post Morgan Freeman's comments today because I believe he asks some intriguing questions...namely - why do we relegate a people's history to one month? Isn't Black history American history?
I am very interested in your responses so please feel free to comment. Freeman suggests that we get over racism by no longer talking about it - he wants us to stop referring to one another in terms of race. A bold statement to be sure - but are Americans prepared for this? Or, does our racist past still have a strangle hold on the nation today?
