Yes, it is, and it's stupid. Despite his race, Morgan Freeman is a pretty privileged individual, and his idea that you can end oppression by not talking about it is facile. Black History Month is not evidence of 'relegating' black history supposedly because there is no equivalent White History Month. It is necessary because every other month is White History Month. He us correct that black history is American history, but it will only be considered American history once every month is Black History Month.
Freeman probably subscribes to the teaching of Martin Luther King, who famously said he dreamt of a world where people were not judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character. The problem is, people are judged by the colour of their skin whether you like it or not because racism is structural, and if you don't take that inherent judgement into account when you try and combat racism you make the problem worse.
