Well, what you call "economic privilege" I call the fruits of your labor.
Morgan Freeman isn't "privileged". He is a talented artist that participates in work that people enjoy and will pay money to expeirience.
Well, first of all, take a step back and look at the context of our conversation, namely that we are talking about the privilege to be free from racism. You are positioning wealth as a means of escape, rather than freedom from racism as something which should be the norm. Furthermore, referring to Freeman as privileged in no way deprives him of the work he had to undertake to get to that position. It is an objective assessment of his position given the amount of money he has.
When I watched that movie, all I could hope for was that Andy Dufrane got shanked by Freeman's character. Then, he'd give his speech about reform being just another word. Would have been awesome. IMO.
He ignores racism because he can afford to. If he and I are walking down the street and a cop needs to make a quota, then I will be the individual harassed, not Freeman, because I do not have the type of privilege he does. This is not to say that he doesn't experience racism, but, as I said, that his experiences with it are mitigated by his class and from that position flows his analysis of how to deal with racism. I do not think this is a controversial thing and I think, as usual, you're offering nothing but a caricature of my statements and not addressing them substantively.
