Screw the country, we’re going to do whatever we can to get this black man out of here.”

Freeman concluded: “It is a racist thing.”

The famous actor claims it’s disturbing, “It just shows the weak dark underside of America,” he said.

“We’re supposed to be better than that. We really are. That’s why all those people were in tears when Obama was elected president. ‘Ah look at what we are–this is America.’ Then it just sort of started turning because these people surfaced–like stirring up muddy water.”

He said he was “kind of” disappointed that President Obama wasn’t more aggressive in taking on the Tea Party. “He was trying to hold on to his own promise that he would be president of all the people,” Freeman said.
