Morgan Freeman to Don Lemon: Race Has No Impact on Income Inequality.

Actor Morgan Freeman is making the media rounds this week to promote his new series Through the Wormhole on the Science Channel. Tuesday night, he sat down for a chat with CNN’s Don Lemon that touched on the role that race does — or doesn’t — play when it comes to wealth distribution in America.

Morgan began by saying he thinks it’s a “great idea” that President Barack Obama and Democrats are drawing attention to income inequality. “We have a much more vibrant society when we don’t have such a vast chasm between the haves and have-nots,” he said. “Without a middle class, you’re not going to have consumers,” he added.
