“Academy Award-winning actor Morgan Freeman, who made his breakthrough in feature films in 1980 at the age of 43, said that race does not play a role in whether people succeed in U.S. society today and, when told that some people say they can’t pull themselves up by their bootstraps, he said, “Bullsh**! Everybody can!”

During an interview with host Don Lemon on CNN Tonight, Lemon said, “Do you think poverty is part of genetics, to answer your question?”

Freeman, 80, said,  “No, you can’t say that. I don’t think wealth, personally, I don’t think wealth and genetics have anything to do with each other, actually.””
