Jamie Foxx: ‘Black people are the most talented people in the world’

By brendon February 11, 2013 @ 3:46 PM

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.

    Its okay for them to say that because they’re black and can say what they want…but if Daniel Day Lewis said that about white people the press and everybody else would have a stick up their ass and say his next role was gonna be Adolf Hitler

    Was I the only person rooting for Zobell to take over Charming a few years ago on SOA?

    Can we stop with the black guilt yet? It’s bullshit that we pretend like their shit is better than it is just because they are black.

    Did you see what Chris Brown did to Rhianna? Now she’s come crawling back to him.

    You can’t tell me that’s not natural talent…..

    Jamie Foxx is a racist douchebag. One of the reasons I discontinued my Sirius radio service was because Foxx gets a tiny bit of that subscription fee every month for his stupid channel on that. And now I guess I won’t see Django either. Fuck him.

    I’m so glad pirated Django! This racist will never get a dime from me.

    Guess it depends on what he means by “talent.” Court jester-like talent, making me laugh at their funny dances and jokes? Sure. Talent at doing anything at all even remotely important, requiring the smallest bit of brains and/or civility? Not so much.

    You had to know that this article would bring out all the racist trolls on your site.
    Granted, every article does that, but still.

    I’m thinking “Django” would have been much better with Daniel Day Lewis in the lead… but that’s just me.

    Hey dickhead, Detroit’s been black run for decades and it’s doing we– oh, shit, I can’t even finish it.
    Detroit used to be a great place. They hope to have a train one day.

    I agree with the article — Jamie Foxx was adequate in “Django Unchained”.

    Can you imagine the outcry if there was an award show where only white people were nominated / awarded?!

    But at least you would know there wouldn’t be any shootings at that award show.

    Fuck the NAACP and their segregation beliefs
