Liberals like to believe that there is only one way to be “right” on any issue, and it is their way. They are aided by their allies in the mainstream media, who try to seed the idea that there is only one acceptable way to approach any topic.
This was shown recently when CNN host Don Lemon engaged acclaimed actor Morgan Freeman in a discussion about race, and tried to get him to agree with him by race-baiting him. Asked Lemon, “Do you think poverty is part of genetics, to answer your question?”
Morgan surprised Lemon by answering, “No, you can’t say that. I don’t think wealth, personally, I don’t think wealth and genetics have anything to do with each other, actually. If you’re born in the U.S., it really doesn’t matter the condition of your birth. What matters is what you inherit from your nurturing, from your environment, whether or not you are — I mean, this is from the standpoint of having been born with little. Here, you can always get out of that. Poverty is just…”
A surprised-looking Lemon cut him off and then asked, “Do you think race plays a part in wealth distribution?” Answered Morgan, “Today? No.” Don couldn’t accept this, and asked, “You don’t?” Replied Freeman, “No. No, I don’t. You and I, we’re proof. Why would race have anything to do with it? Put your mind to what you want to do and go from there. I was born in Memphis, Tennessee. I had a long haul from where I came from, to here. But here we are. So proof is in — proof of the pudding is in the eating. Here we sit at the dining table.”
Still unwilling to accept Freeman’s point of view, Lemon pressed further and said, “But it’s hard to — when you say that to people because they say, ‘Here you go with the pull yourself up by the bootstraps thing. You’re just being respectable. Not everybody can do that.” Shot back the Academy Award winner, “Bullshit! Everybody can! Not that it doesn’t – [take] courage. Courage is the key to life itself. A lot of people were born in situations, ‘I’ll never get out of this.’ So they won’t. I say to people who say, ‘Well, I would like to have done so and so and so and so.’ Well, you could have done it. ‘I couldn’t get out of here.’ Man, the bus runs every day.” How much do you love Morgan for saying this?
