Where’s the Morgan Freeman who once called for an end to condescending racial hand-wringing? Where’s the Morgan Freeman who once stunned Mike Wallace by calling Black History Month “ridiculous”?
You’re gonna relegate my history to a month?… I don’t want a Black History Month. Black history is American history… Stop talking about [racism]. I’m gonna stop calling you a white man, and I’m gonna ask you to stop calling me a black man. I know you as Mike Wallace. You know me as Morgan Freeman.
That venerable actor appears to be gone, replaced by a bitter doppelganger engaged in the very race-baiting he once decried.
