I was watching a documentary on MF, and he was talking about being interviewed/auditioned for a disaster movie in the late ˜70s/early’80s¦the director calls him in and asks, œWhat do you think?

To which Morgan replies, œYou have a movie about 7 scientists, a cook, a caretaker, and a mechanic. All the scientists are white, the cook, caretaker, & mechanic are black. How do you think I feel?

Needless to say, he adds, he didn’t get the job, but he said he refused to œtake any part that demeaned a race or myself.

He didn’t get any movie roles in the 80s, he says, because of this philosophy.  Fast forward 30 years, and he’s one of the most highly sought after stars in Hollywood.
