Burton, who starred in the iconic saga, “Roots,” as ‘Kunta Kinte, says that it’s just not right man.
He told TMZ that he’s disappointed with the presidential candidate’s proposition.
“I am personally outraged that any serious contender for the White House would target as part of his campaign, the children of America in this fashion,” he said.
“Educators across the country, as well as millions of children and adults know that the programming on PBS has been responsible for significant improvements in education, literacy, math, science and life skills for generations of our children.”
On Wednesday night’s debate between incumbent President Barack Obama, and Republican candidate Mitt Romney, the Massachusetts governor promised to cut government funding to PBS, claiming it’s a drain on the nation’s finances.
LeVar snapped back, “PBS represents .00016% of our nation’s budget, yet this free resource benefits kids across all economic circumstances.”
