Morgan Freeman declared in an 2005 interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes” that the only way to get rid of racism is to “stop talking about it.”

But that was not the first time the award-winning actor revealed his disapproval of Black people acknowledging race. In a 2011 BET interview Freeman was asked about the lack of African-American actors on stage at the Oscars, to which he responded:

“I think we need to get over that s***t. How many Chinese do you see? You don’t see them out marching and s***. Oh God, please. I think … We need to get over it, that’s all.”
