Morgan Freeman demonstrated once again why it’s best for actors to be scene and not heard by charging that the Tea Party hates Obama because he’s black.

“Stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term,” he said. “What … underlines that? Screw the country. We’re going to do whatever we do to get this black man … outta here.”

Freeman added: “It just shows the weak, dark, underside of America. We’re supposed to be better than that. We really are. That’s, that’s why all those people were in tears when Obama was elected president. ‘Ah, look at what we are. Look at how, this is America.’ You know? And then it just sort of started turning because these people surfaced like stirring up muddy water.”

Meanwhile, Florida GOP straw voters — many of them Tea Partiers — overwhelmingly chose Herman Cain as their choice for president.

Memo to Freeman: Herman Cain is black.
