Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman claims racism in the U.S. has actually got worse since Barack Obama took office in January 2009.
The film star, who played Nelson Mandela in 2009 film Invictus, told CNN the President has become a target for the Tea Party’s ‘racist’ aggression.
He backed President Obama during his election campaign and said the Tea Party’s anti-Obama stance is racist, reported the Huffinton Post.
‘Their stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term,’ he told Piers Morgan on CNN.
‘What underlines that? “Screw the country. We’re going to do whatever we can to get this black man out of here”.’
