Jamie Foxx: 'Black People Are The Most Talented People In The World'
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 02/08/2013 5:01:40 PM PST by chessplayer

It seems Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx just can't avoid saying something really stupid at awards ceremonies.

After calling Barack Obama "Our Lord and Savior" at last November's Soul Train Awards, Foxx, during his acceptance speech as Entertainer of the Year at last Friday's NAACP Image Awards, said, "Black people are the most talented people in the world" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

I guess a lot depends on your definition of “talented.” Right now, black style is big in show business, but there’s more to life than that.

Sure they are. That's why subSaharan Africa never even invented the wheel.

...they would have been as big a racist as Jamie Foxx. The white person, however, would have been called out on it.

I can’t really blame Mr Foxx, as much as the modern media culture has coddled the black community I can understand why some might begin thinking they really are superior.

Well that would explain why the majority of high paying jobs requiring honest to goodness talent are held by blacks.

I (think)have a GREAT idea.

Let’s just BAN WHITE PEOPLE from spending ANY money on any Black Entertainer, be it movies, football games, baseball games, songs etc etc.

Actually we shouldn’t have to BAN it or pass a law, if it were to be done voluntarily for a couple of weeks the message may get out.

Kind of like way back when, when the locals would terrorize Sailors, Marines, Airmen, Soldiers in the town near the base.
Several things worked.
One enterprising Skipper had a $2 bill payday, to let the locals know where most of the money was coming from.
Another effective way was to have an unauthorized (yea right) dungaree liberty, maybe ‘primitive’ but got the job done but you took a chance that the following couple of nights would be hard on the individuals, so sometimes best idea is just make the town ‘off limits’ for a couple of days.

As any ‘REALIST” knows, the true International Language is Money......

When Bill Cosby’s son was killed in a high jacking (by a Russian Immigrant) Mrs Cosby made the statement ‘Sure doesn’t take ‘them’ long to pick up the American White Ways’.
Sure, she said it in anger BUT would she be able to live in an exclusive Hollywood Hills Home if ‘Whitey’ didn’t spend money on her husband?

A rat done bit my sister Nell
With Whitey on the moon
Her face and arms began to swell
And Whitey's on the moon

I can't pay no doctor bills
But Whitey's on the moon
Ten years from now I'll be paying still
While Whitey's on the moon

You know, the man just upped my rent last night
Cause Whitey's on the moon
No hot water, no toilets, no lights
But Whitey's on the moon

The most advanced African culture uninfluenced by contact with other races was the Zulu. So, I hate to break it to you homeboy, but if you’re not drinking cows’ blood and living in a hut made of straw mixed with cowsh*t, anything else you got is thanks to those prejudiced white devils.

“Black People Are The Most Talented People In The World.”

If they ever develop a work ethic and give up violence and blame shifting, they may finally contribute their fair share to the American economy.

So now these most talented blacks can stand on their own without more federal assistance? No more redistribution of wealth from the hard working Americans to the inner city (liberal) blacks? The moochers party is over?

Well so much for that idea Jamie Foxx!

What a frickin’ racist.

Talent is talent, and there are plenty of talented people of every race, color, creed.

And there are pricks of every race, color and creed.

Jamie is in the latter category.

If your Black you can be a racist, wait I forgot, only white people are racist! I am sorry for Jamie Foxx, too much drugs and alcohol and maybe STD’s. I don’t believe talent has a color, unlike some racist Black folks. But if he is going to start this sh*t, I believe that a majority of the great comedians, and I’m not talking about those so called comedians that can’t tell a joke without swearing, were of a certain ethnic persuasion and it wasn’t Black! And the so called Kings of comedy? give me a break!

“Tap dancing and basketball aside, name a talent.”

Musician, doctor, chemist, physicist, engineer, businessman, attorney(ok, the glove didn’t fit so they had to acquit) poet....

The list goes on and on.

Remember, for every black dude carrying around a milk crate during Katrina, there is a white dude going, “hey Bubba, hold muh beer and watch this.”
