Meanwhile in India of the Day: Morgan Freeman Mistaken for Nelson Mandela on Billbaord
- -

A public sign has been displayed in Coimbatore, India to commemorate Nelson Mandela but ended up being a huge FAIL when an image of American actor Morgan Freeman was mistaken for the late president of South Africa. Alongside Freeman, the poster also includes images of Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa and Martin Luther King Jr. According the the Huffington Post, the included text translates to the following:

Among today's politicians who cannot think beyond the next election cycle, Nelson Mandela was a leader who thought of the well-being of future generations. He went to join Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King on 5.12.13. We bow down to him, proud to have lived during his time on earth and praise his message of love, non-violence and sacrifice. "The farmer may sleep, but the seeds he planted never will.

The man responsible for the poster plans to have it amended.

Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman appeared on NPR's Tell Me More on Thursday to help promote two of his upcoming films, The Dark Knight Rises and The Magic of Belle Isle. The discussion with host Michael Martin took a political turn, and Freeman offered his thoughts on President Barack Obama and the racial qualifications of a black President:

"First thing that always pops into my head regarding our president is that all of the people who are setting up this barrier for him...they just conveniently forget that Barack had a mama, and she was white — very white American, Kansas, middle of America. There was no argument about who he is or what he is. America's first black president hasn't arisen yet. He's not America's first black president — he's America's first mixed-race president."

However, Freeman went on to say that he thinks President Obama has been unfairly treated by his political opponents since taking office, and criticized the Republican Party for being uncooperative during his first term.

It's one thing to impersonate Morgan Freeman. It's entirely different when the impersonation evolves into a string of haikus which seemingly could have been written by the man himself.
