Acclaimed actor Morgan Freeman has expressed his disdain for Black History Month, according to Gateway Pundit.

In a recent interview with Variety, the Oscar laureate voiced his belief that his personal history is intertwined with the broader narrative of America, rather than being confined to his racial identity.

"I detest it. The mere idea of it. You are going to give me the shortest month in a year? And you are going to celebrate 'my' history?! This whole idea makes my teeth itch. It's not right," Freeman declared. He went on to assert, "My history is American history. It's the one thing in this world I am interested in, beyond making money, having a good time and getting enough sleep."

These remarks were made in the lead-up to the release of the series 'The Gray House,' where Freeman holds the role of an executive producer, working alongside renowned actor Kevin Costner. The series delves into the clandestine operations undertaken by three female Union spies during the American Civil War.

Freeman's recent comments are not his first public critique of the racialization of American society. In 2005, he made waves across the nation when he proposed that the solution to racism is to "stop talking about it."

"I am going to stop calling you a White man, and I'm going to ask you to stop calling me a Black man," Freeman stated then. His words echo a conservative viewpoint that emphasizes individual identity over racial categorization, suggesting that the path to overcoming racial divisions lies in focusing on our shared American history and values.
