Iconic actor Harry Belafonte apparently  isn’t focused on retiring anytime soon — as the 85 year old activist still has a few causes that he needs to address…

In a recent interview, Harry Belafonte accuses high profile celebrities of turning their back on their social responsibilities, specifically Jay Z and Beyonce.

When asked if he were happy with the image of minorities in Hollywood today Belafonte replied:

“Not at all. They have not told the history of our people, nothing of who we are. We are still looking. We are not determinated. We are not driven by some technology that says you can kill Afghans, the Iraqis or the Spanish. It is all — excuse my French — shit. It is sad. And I think one of the great abuses of this modern time is that we should have had such high-profile artists, powerful celebrities. But they have turned their back on social responsibility. That goes for Jay-Z and Beyonce, for example. Give me Bruce Springsteen, and now you’re talking. I really think he is black”
