On Friday, Los Angeles Lakers basketball player LeBron James shared and then deleted an Instagram video posted by Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk featuring actor Morgan Freeman calling for the end of Black History Month.

In the clip, former CBS' Mike Wallace asked Freeman, "Black History Month you find—?" "Ridiculous," the actor answered, later adding "You're gonna relegate my history to a month?" and "I don't want a Black history month. Black history is American history."

Kirk noticed James had shared and deleted the message and tweeted, "LeBron James shared a video I posted of Morgan Freeman saying we should get rid of black history month, then he deleted it. Why?"

Kirk also posted the full clip.

In the full video, after Freeman said, "you're gonna relegate my history to a month?" Wallace replied, "Oh, come on."

"What do you do with yours? Which month is white history month?" Freeman asked. "Come on, tell me."

"I'm Jewish," Wallace replied. 

"Okay, which month is Jewish history month?" Asked Freeman.

"There isn't one."

"Oh, oh. Why not? Do you want one?"

"No, no," Wallace answered.

"I don't either," Freeman said. "I don't want a Black history month. Black history is American history."

After Wallace asked Freeman how are we "going to get rid of racism" the actor answered, "stop talking about it."

Freeman added, "I'm going to stop calling you a white man. And I'm going to ask you to stop calling me a black man. I know you as Mike Wallace. You know me as Morgan Freeman."

Turning Point USA tweeted at James and said, "It's okay to express how you really feel @KingJames."

On Twitter, on user wrote James deleted the video because "He wouldn’t be able to profit from it."

Another said, "LeBron had an original thought for just a brief moment."

"It wasn't part of the NBA preseason script," another tweeted.
