In a world dominated by white Caucasians since the colonization of the New World by Europeans, being black was the worst skin color to have as it was the most remote color from the new dominant race. It wouldn't be an issue if white Europeans didn't discriminate races looking physically and being culturally very different from them. By the way, you would be surprised it I tell you that white and black people are closer than they imagine. Actually, they are closer to each other than they are with Chinese or Native Americans. Basically, Africans were not meant to be used as slaves in the New World, but the inability of the natives Americans to cope with slavery made it possible. Black people are the physically fittest and fastest race in the world. Look on the side of sport legends such as Carl Lewis, Mike Tyson, Shaquille O'Neal or Lebron James, they don't have equals from other races.

Morgan is a descendant of the slaves stolen from Africa, brought to America, fighting on arrival, fighting for survival,... in short a real Buffalo Soldier. But Morgan is not like Lewis, Tyson or James, he is not physically gifted. Instead, he has a brain, charisma and is good at public speech, just like Martin Luther King "The Father" of Black America. Black Americans don't care about Uncle Sam, they only care about their own uncle, Martin, who died tragically but left a legacy that Morgan try to carry on his shoulders. It's not only about racism, it's also about civil rights and freedom in America.

"The Civil War" won by the republicans led by Abraham Lincoln against the confederates was the first step with the abolition of slavery. It had a "Deep Impact" on American society, but was not enough to end with racism. Racism is "The Sum of All Fears", the blacks were "Under Suspicion" and were heavily discriminated and segregated from whites. The problem is, a vast majority of white American are Christians and believe the first man to ever walk the earth was "A Man Called Adam", and he was white. So, they ask themselves: "Where the hell black people come from!?" Obviously, they come from Africa. Actually, everybody comes from Africa. Which means we all began as black people a very long time ago.

Morgan is "The Dark Knight" fighting for black rights in racist America. He is "Clean and Sober" and a "Dreamcatcher", just like his model, Luther King. But when the media call him the new Martin Luther King, he answers:

"That Was Then... This Is Now."

So, the media had to leave the past behind, and Luther King was happy to be left alone.

When Morgan was a kid, he had to bear a lot of bad jokes for looking different. Sometimes he came up with great answers that left the other kids open-mouthed.

"Where Were You When the Lights Went Out?"

Said a white kid to Morgan who answered:

"I was right there, in the dark."

And everybody would laugh, as anybody would have answered the same thing. In the dark everybody look the same, there's no black or white or any other color.

When white Christian Americans talk to him about the first man on earth Adam, he tells them: "Have you heard about "Lucy", the first human on earth?" Lucy is 3.2 millions years old and was discovered somewhere in Africa, and scientists consider her the oldest human remains ever found. This is simple, this is black or white. Either you believe in Adam, like the white American Christians, or you believe in Lucy, like the black Americans.

Morgan strongly believes the church should be in the middle of the village, and he hates misconceptions. He says out loud what he thinks deep inside and want people to know the truth, and it begins by himself. It even begins with his model Luther King, as Morgan likes to go back in time.

"Dr. Martin Luther King is not a black hero. He is an American hero."

Luther King was fighting for civil rights for black Americans. He never made any speech abroad, but did take position about the Apartheid in South Africa, proposing solutions to end it. At Luther King time in the 60s, the world was not globalized, and this is why his fight and message were not as universal as Nelson Mandela. But if Luther King happened in the XXI century, maybe he would be even more universal than Mandela. It's not about the message, it's about the time it occurs. At the right time at the right place matters a lot in this world, and Luther King message about racism and segregation was not different from Mandela, it even inspired him. Basically, they were part of the same fight, the same legacy carried by new generation on and on. Morgan is actually wrong: Dr. Martin Luther King is a black hero AND an American hero. I do think it's great if he can be both, it makes him more universal. Morgan, is an American hero, and not a black hero. This is a statement he should have made about himself.

"How are we going to get rid of racism? Stop talking about it!"

If you don't talk about it, it's not there. When you stop talking about a problem, it goes away by itself. I would say, not always. But talking all the time about it won't solve it either. It's a draw.

"I am going to stop calling you a white man and I'm going to ask you to stop calling me a black man."

We should pretend we live in the dark, this way we would all look the same, just like in the joke about when the lights went out. But Morgan is right for something, the media in America talk too much about it. They talk too much about the wrong things. They should shut up from time to time, and let people in America listen to the birds singing.

"Forgiveness liberates the soul, it removes fear."

If black Americans are free of slavery and still fighting for civil rights, freeing their souls will be their biggest victory over segregation and racism.

"So, goodnight Morgan. You are a Freeman, and you will free your men. But with so many immigrants in America and globalization, the concept of one country, one nation is dying. America belongs to the world, and the world belongs to America."
