Morrissey is anything but quiet when it comes to controversial opinions.

Morrissey stirred the pot last week on Larry King Now when he unleashed a slew of polarizing opinions, and as it turns out, he wasn't quite done. In a recent interview with The Daily Beast, he took the opportunity to extrapolate on the "whiteness" of our current president.

His most recent comments were spurred by the quote he gave to Larry King Last week: "Obama, is he white inside? That's a very logical question—but I think he probably is."

In his response with The Daily Beast, Morrissey went off on his feelings about Obama's current response to #BlackLivesMatter, and how in is opinion, it is not enough.

"I can’t see him doing anything at all for the black community except warning them that they must respect the security forces," Morrissey claimed. “This is ludicrous because the so-called security forces are the Ku Klux Klan to most black Americans. It seems evident to me that black males are being deliberately murdered throughout America as a closing message to Obama, telling him that his presidency has meant nothing and that the division of color is now bigger than ever. Obama doesn’t see this, but if a white cop shot one of his daughters I don’t imagine he’d be willing to accept the exoneration of that white cop."

"I am wryly amused by all of these tough cop reality programs on American TV because it’s always white cops arresting the black or Hispanic poor, yet you don’t ever see the cops frisking a crooked lawyer or chasing a middle-class accountant who's robbed millions from clients,” he added in the interview. “It’s always the extreme poor who are targeted by the cops because the poor have no influential friends and therefore can’t retaliate, and the cops know that they can play about with poor people. The final point about Obama is that he doesn’t look overly African black. He’s as close to soft, whiteness as someone who isn’t white could get, and I often wonder if he would have been elected if he had a stronger, more African-black face? It’s a point."

While some of these statements may be well-intentioned - Morrissey seems to genuinely care - and there is a definite point to be made regarding Obama's tendency to cater to white folks, the delivery is certainly intense and will have more than a few people shaking their heads. It will be interesting to see how this pans out over the next couple of weeks.
