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):

Is that a talented negro? Judging by the hair alone, I’d go for Italian - with highlights.

Honestly, I have no idea who that is - or why I should care!

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’.


Bill Cosby is as much a racist as his wife is.

I will give him the benefit of the doubt, and allow that he misspoke, lost in the moment trying to make a point about something bigger than himself. All is forgiven.

The fact remains however, that had a white person said anything even remotely similar ... in fact, had a white person in any way, shape, or form, acknowledged his whiteness, much less equated it to other talented whites in some global white talent pool, they would be crucified. Their career would be over. They would never work in their chosen field ever again.

And that is what is wrong here. A blatant double standard -- that someone can be at an all black awards show acknowledging their blackness, and ultimately ascribing supreme talent to blacks ... it should be seen for what it is ... outdated racialism, if not outright racism.

But hey, maybe I am behind the times. Maybe race does matter. Maybe race is the be all and end all ... if so, then we are screwed as a nation, with wounds that will never heal, and we are destined to war.

I literally had to google Jamie Foxx, and check what his filmography is. I never heard of him.

He must be white, because he's so talented, I have failed to see a single one of his talented "acting" jobs.

Listen to the so called “non-racist” NAACP audience loudly applaud him when he says it. And he’s not only putting down whites when he said it, he put down latinos, asians, and every other ethnic group.

With all that talent isn't it time to end the reprehensible racist practice of affirmative action?
Certain athletic skills are often said to be generally dominated by blacks as evidenced by disproportionate numbers of blacks populating the rosters of NBA and NFL teams. So, why are there no racial quotas to assure justice in the percentage of Caucasians for those job slots?
However one must never reference the scholarly research results of The Bell Curve with regard to general racial differences with regard to intelligence.

Yes they are! Just look at how talented they’ve been in running Detroit, Birmingham, Memphis, South Africa, Zimbabwe-any place in the world run by blacks-right into the ground. Even when the previous “untalented” white people who ran it, left them all the infrastructure, an efficient economy, etc, as a head start (one which we create for ourselves, I might add). They’re extremely talented at crime, esp violent crime, most especially sexual crimes-just look at the black rape rates, esp interracial-they’ve got whites beat at that app 115-0!

How’s Nigeria’s space program coming along? For that matter, how’s their car industry doing? Or anything involving the wheel?

Does he mean the arts? Classical music-what’s that compared to the sublimity of rap? Ballet? What’s that compared to “booty clapping”? Rembrandt, Mochalengelo, who are they compared to the “sophisticated” art of fertility masks?

“Django Unhinged”, lol

Yeah, and it’s really rather a sad, weak, version of the white variety, because at least whites can show a history of achievement going back thousands of years. The black version (once again, a copy of what some whites already did) is just bravado.

Jamie Foxx is such a joke. Anyone here seen “Stealth”? There’s a delightful scene where the three pilots are in their shipboard rooms “studying” the new UAV assigned to their group. The two white people study diligently while a shirtless, sunglasses-wearing Jamie Foxx (I swear I’m not making this up) listens to rap music, spins a basketball on his finger, and pretends like paparazzi are taking pictures of him at a nightclub. Every few seconds he glances at the computer that he should be studying.

It’s supposed to further establish that Foxx’s character is “the cool one” but it’s so blatantly racist, one has to wonder how it made it into the final cut. And Jamie Foxx apparently had no problem with the scene or his participation in it.

Yes they are a talented bunch - they have a higher percentage of folks who don't work and live off the teat of the workers and are called "victim". They spew racist crap day in and day out, steal from, hurt, and kill Whites because 'they're whities" and they are called "victims who suffer from racism". They kill each other at a rate that no other murder subset can compare to and they are called "victims of the Constitution which allows men to defend themselves from such intelligent and clever folks as Jamie's super-Blacks".

Talented indeed Jamie - don't let the plantation door hit you in the face when you take a quick peek at the greener side of the fence.

“He is just another reason to boycott hollywood in its totality.”

Really; I’ll never understand why whites spend money seeing movies that just denigrate them while sowing this absurd fantasy world of black geniuses and family men that is totally at odds with what our lying eyes show all around us.

I also don’t know why the powers that be that promote this nonsense simultaneously allow “The Maury Show” to depict blacks in such a negative light (especially because it is the bottom of the barrel in terms of whites that are home watching it while others are at work).

Blacks in America feel they are owed big time, and feel it’s their turn to be in control. It’s a pure and simple power grab. Whites are to stfu and deal with it. Maybe even get a some payback. Pure racism.

At least Mel Gibson had public intoxication to hide behind on some of his controversial statements which all but destroyed his career.

Where's the outrage aimed at Foxx?

Show me any other ancient civilization dating back four thousand years which has been persecuted horribly, virtually wiped out repeatedly, but keeps coming back and wiping the floor with their enemies.

Might be enough to indicate even to hard-bitten atheists that G-d had something to do with it...

27 posted on 2/8/2013 7:23:56 PM by ought-six: “I don’t know...but I think there were some Korean shopkeepers that a hell of a lot more talent than this group.

Valid point.

Let's not forget that unlike lots of other property owners during the Los Angeles riots who decided to get out of the way of the rioters, knowing they could collect their insurance money and either rebuild or shut down their business, significant numbers of Korean business owners lived in the upper floors of the inner-city stores which they had spent huge amounts of personal effort to reopen when other people weren't willing to take the risk to start an inner-city business. Also, many had minimal if any insurance.

When you see a mob of angry people approaching your business and your wife and daughter are cowering upstairs in your bathroom, you're much more likely to get out a rifle and start shooting.

Considering some other comments on this thread, I'd better say this has zero to do with race. I've lived in inner-city communities, both black neighborhoods in the north and Hispanic barrios in the southwest, where I was virtually the only white person in my neighborhood. Most black or hispanic people, even in high-crime neighborhoods, are decent people. The problem is they've been intimidated into silence by a small percentage of thugs.

Rather than gun bans, personally I think the best thing we could do for the inner cities is to encourage handgun ownership for everyone living in a high-crime neighborhood who doesn't have a criminal record, with free training for women and elderly people, on the grounds that a handgun in the hands of a woman or an older person neutralizes the physical strength advantages of young angry males. Burglaries and home invasion rates would drop quickly, and lots of crime victims with good aim would have the beneficial side effect of reducing our prison bills.

Is this an unconstitutional income redistribution scheme in which the government shouldn't be involved. Of course.

But hey, sometime we have to compromise in politics. If we're going to give "Obamaphones" to poor inner-city people, as long as we're going to spend government money on something anyway, why not give "GOPguns" to poor inner-city people?

This will never happen, of course, but if it did, it might actually work.
