Was implied here it was a blood relation. Was pretty shocked he still had a career and it wasn't being plastered all over the media if that was true. Still messed up though.

Russell can pass for Dick Gregoy more than for Morgan Freeman.

Any average proportioned black man with grey hair prob looks like hollywood actor Morgan Freeman to most white americans because that's the only aged black person who's face they see with regularity - they prob have no idea who Dick Gregory is

Russell and and Freeman have that same rounding head and low sitting face. They're also both about the same age and wear their hair/facial hair similarly. The biggest difference I see is in the cheekbones, but I can still see how someone unfamiliar with Russell could make that mistake given just a quick glimpse.

I don't understand the anti-racism backlash this is getting, dude made a mistake and come on they do resemble each other especially sitting down wearing those shades. Still it's a stupid mistake since apparently the guy is a Massachusetts native...
