- By Bossip Staff

Blair Underwood (with his fine self) was on Piers Morgan discussing race and the POTUS..

Via CNN:

Currently starring in the first multiracial version of Tennessee Williams’ “A Streetcar Named Desire,” Underwood speaks to the country’s battle with race, specifically in relation to Barack Obama:

“We have to remember that to have the first African-American president, there aren’t enough black and brown people in this country to elect him,” Underwood tells the “Piers Morgan Tonight” host. “So there are many other people – white, yellow, red, everybody in between – that elected this man to the presidency of the United States.”

Best known for his iconic portrayal of attorney Jonathan Rollins in NBC’s legal drama “L.A. Law,” the 47-year-old father of three is a self-described “army brat,” and disagrees with what he calls “a certain disrespect and disregard for the presidency of the United States.”

“My dad is a retired army colonel. So I grew up in a household where you don’t necessarily question your commander-in-chief. You do what you’re supposed…to do,” he explains. “No one is perfect with – with each president along the way, but you respect the office.”
