Jamie Foxx: 'Black people are the most talented people in the world'

It would be a lot easier to call Jamie Foxx a jackass if he weren't so god damn good in 'Djangio Unchained', but Jamie Foxx is a jackass anyway for what he said at the NAACP Awards.

As he accepted the Entertainer of the Year Award, he praised other luminaries such as Harry Belafonte and Sidney Poitier, saying that he was humbled by the amazing people he shared the stage with. 'Black people are the most talented people in the world. I, it's, I can't explain it,' Foxx said. 'You can't sit in this room and not watch Gladys Knight sing and go like, "Golly, what in the world?"'

Keep in mind that making this about race was Jamie's idea, not mine, but yeah, "talent". That must be why all the African countries and black neighborhoods are such fantastic utopias. Lagos, the second biggest city in Africa, is totally the same as Berlin and Seoul and London. They even hope to have a train one day. Imagine that! It's the world of tomorrow, today! Well, I mean, actually it's still tomorrow because they don't have one yet but you get the idea.
