    How cool would it be to have Morgan Freeman as president? He seems smart, well read and even has narrated many science shows/series. The man is so cool and would be such a heroic leader for blacks and all americans. Blacks would particularly benefit from such a leader as he views blacks the same way he sees whites and he doesn’t try to drive a wedge between races. Unlike hateful and divisive frauds like Colin ‘racist’ Kapernick and race pimp Al Sharpton, this man has a positive message and a calming presence.

    We got to see him as president in the movie ‘Deep Impact’. What a cool leader he would be.



    on black history month:

    ‘Ridiculous’

    ‘Black history is american history’

    ‘I don’t want black history’

    In response to how to combat racism:

    ‘stop talking about it’

    ‘I’m going to stop calling you a white man and you will stop calling me a black man’



    When asked whether race plays a part in wealth distribution by race pimp don lemon:

    ‘No. You and i are living proof of it’

    On why race is used as reason for inequality:

    ‘it’s a good excuse for not getting there’

    on racism:

    ‘Making it a bigger issue than it needs to be is the problem we have’

    He'd get my vote.

    His common sense and logical views on racism probably wouldn't endear him to the left very much though.

    There are similar interviews with Denzel Washington as well.

    You have it bass ackwards. We should feel free to talk about racial differences as long as they are real and the discussion is not intended to demean.

    I think he's a strong liberal --policy wise--which means I won't vote for him politically but he is an awesome actor!!

    Denzel Washington...yeah he'd be more inclines to get my vote. He is a God fearing man who manages to live a Godly life in Hollywood. He could manage that in the swamp as well.

    He is living up to his name "Free-man". Other blacks and liberal radicals could learn from him, and also become free. Morgan would not be accepted in the democrat party, he would have to run as a republican or an independent.

    *******s like Don Lemon don't care about the middle class. *******s like Don Lemon suck up to political elites and the very wealthy.

    I think Trump's presidency has rendered any other actor/entertainer's chance for running moot.

    He wouldn't be any worse than any president we have had for a long time. I prefer people with business management experience, however.

    So celebrities should have opinions on political issues when we agree with them, the rest of the time they should shut up and act or dribble.

    Agreed, but then you can't complain that it comes up all the time like the person I responded did. If you want a good discussion cool, but don't complain about it when it comes up.

    I don’t think he’s qualified to do the job. Love the man as an actor, but I think it would be crazy to put him in the White House. Same with Oprah and any other celeb people think should run.

    Just like any other job, experience is key, and they don’t have it.

    Accusing people of being racist is not a good discussion. And that is what democrats tend to do.

    I’d rather have Denzel
    Have you seen how he deals with race baiting in interviews?
    The guy is amazing and super smart
    Morgan is great but he’s too old. Sorry

    That being said, sometimes communism is communism and racism is racism. (Full disclosure: I think communism is pretty rad.)

    I would take trump over him but if i had to pick between biden, harris and today’s prominent dems, freeman is way ahead.

    Today’s democratic party is doing so much damage by using racism and identity politics as a political weapon. How they explain everything as being racist, call every opponent white supremacists. Their policy decisions are guided by race. Biden is senile…

    one of the most damaging movements today is dividing along lines of race, it’s creating race wars. Someone like freeman would seek to eradicate this disease, as a black man. He also seems pretty smart, into science so not a dummy actor..
