Morgan Freeman Proof Of Equality

MORGAN FREEMAN says Hollywood does not discriminate against ethnic minorities, despite the protests of fellow black actors.

The ALONG CAME A SPIDER (2001) actor believes that Tinseltown is more focused on making money and tries to give society 'what it will pay for'.

And the three-times OSCAR nominee cites his own success as evidence of Hollywood's racial equality. He says, "Hollywood's racial history has only to do with the country's racial history. Hollywood's history is predicated on money, showbusiness - they're not do-gooders in any shape or form, so to denigrate Hollywood for its racial practices is unfair on the industry itself."
