I agree with it as well. My issue was with his view on how to end racism.
Well, in Hollywood, an actor like Freeman certainly does own the means of production. Films are often budgeted based on the talent. For example, a studio is going to approve a larger budget for a film directed by Spielberg rather than a film directed by the guy who makes all the shitty Adam Sandler movies.
So, in a sense, Morgan Freeman's involvement in a film may mean the difference between filming on a sound stage rather than on location.
He may not technically "own" the means of production, but he certainly influences it.
Let's not even get into the fact that it took Freemen decades to get where he is and he has earned the autonomy he enjoys now.
He certainly has more power than the average middle-class worker, but as he does not own a studio or control the day-to-day decisions in the business, I would still not lump him in with the capitalist class. If he, as an actor, were to somehow lose popularity/profitability, then he would no longer wield the power he does now. Further, I wouldn't say that he hasn't worked to get where he is, rather, my initial comment was referring to how his class position influences his views on racism. There have been many within the black middle-class who, by virtue of economic privilege, have their experiences with race mitigated. As a result, racism appears to them as something which can be ignored out of existence,e.g., rarely do black stars have to deal with police brutality, so framing it as a racial issue does not make sense to them, rather, it is a matter of a few bad apples.
