Jamie Foxx is the latest celebrity to stand up and celebrate, following Barack Obamas victory in the presidential election.
It was absolutely incredible, Jamie told Access Hollywoods Shaun Robinson in an exclusive interview. Im standing around all dudes and we are breaking out in tears.
When Shaun caught up with Jamie on the set of his new music video, Just Like Me, the Oscar winner said Obamas victory has instilled a sense of responsibility in all African-Americans.
I dont know how people felt but I know how I felt, as far as being an African-American male, Foxx added. I speak now to every African-American male that I see. Now we have a responsibility, a huge responsibility to make sure we do the right thing now and to cut out all the madness and silliness. Now we dont have an excuse.
We cant say its the mans fault when you are the man, Foxx continued.

He’s got a point. Now is the time for all good brothers to take responsibility for their children and their lives.
Well I hope that proves to be a benefit of Obama's time in office.... but a lot of people (of any race) can find all the excuses they need when they want to do so......
Obama is only half black, so all the brothers can kooooooool their jets! LOL
If anything comes out of BO reign, I hope that it is a renewal of black America. There is no other effective hope than people taking responsibility for their own actions and helping themselves.
Having your take home pay reduced will do that...
Obamas victory has instilled a sense of responsibility in all African-Americans.
Uhhhh... News Flash: That has been the Republican platform from day one. You liberals and Democrats don't like responsibility, that's why you voted for "free gasoline and free mortgages!" Dumb a$$!
I can see that, hope he is right
Well, since we still haven’t had a female president, I think I’ll choose sloth and silliness. Yeah....that’s the ticket.
OMG thats too funny
Is he saying the black community has NOT been responsible up to this point?
If a white person said this about the black community, they would be crucified...
Was this a comedy bit? Did welfare lines dwindle as lines formed for couples to get married, find jobs, and otherwise act like responsible free people? Did I miss that part on TV? Did Obama already give a morality bailout to his people?
You are bad and that is so stolen!
I give the responsibility meme about a week, then it’s back to blaming Whitey for obstructing the Great One’s program.
Yeah, it is just the lack of a black president that has been keeping so many black men down.
Since 95% of blacks voted for Obama, I doubt renewal is on their minds. Paybacks, as in reparations will be on the agenda. 300 years of slavery in America will cost us white folks dearly.... oops... will cost ALL of us dearly.
Obama didn't sit in Rev Wright's Church for 20 years and listen to his teachings of Black Liberation Theology for nothing. AKA. Black Marxism!
Quoted because this boggles my mind...
WORK ON THAT #15 PLEASE.
