Morgan Freeman is uninformed or ill informed

I've been a Morgan Freeman fan as long as he has been a Hollywood movie star. I was shocked to see him play the "race card" in a recent interview just last week. During his interview he referred to the Tea Party as being "racist."

He has just been the latest to climb on the "race-card bandwagon."

When knowledge and facts fall short, just demagogue the Tea Party with the "race card!"

In his interview Mr. Freeman blamed the Tea Party for "going to do whatever they can to get this black man outta here."

He was referring to the Tea Party's goal to make President Obama a one term President.

Let me inform you Mr. Freeman, you are not ignorant because of the color of your skin, you are ignorant because you are either uninformed or ill informed.

The Tea Party is not out to make President Obama a one-term president because he is black. The fact his mother was white and his father black means nothing. It is because he is a terrible president. With the help of President Obama, the Tea Party is doing all they can to make him a one-term president.

It is interesting that liberals see only the color of an individual's skin and not their policies or actions. I'm mystified by their shortsightedness.

Why can't they see our country as just people who happen to be black, brown, tan or white?"

Unfortunately, the media has painted the Tea Party as a racist movement even though they have never espoused such an agenda. Ronald Reagan once said: "The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so."

If the Tea Party is such a racist organization, why is it so many Tea Partiers are campaigning for. . . . . . Herman Cain? Herman Cain seems to be very comfortable with Tea Party support. Oh, for what it's worth, isn't Herman Cain black?
