What can one do...this country is too stupid to understand intellectuals and so stupid to use an actor to address a question of culture and knowledge.
At the same time....who knows where he is going with this? He could be saying that instead of relegating black history to a month, that is should be taught year around. This is what I have been saying for years, especially since black history has commercialized, by mcdonalds, burger king, and various soft drink and automobile companies....
Also, he is quite smart in not using black as a discriptor, for that could force whites people to see us as humans...this is important, no?
Now, this doesn't mean an erasure of racism, and he is so very foolishly if he confuse (1) unnaming race, with (2) the fortitude of racism...race and racism are two different, though connected, categories in the first place....
So, who knows? presently, though, he sounds foolish!
