'As a black person it's always racial': Jamie Foxx
Mail Online ^ | 14 December 2012 | J J Anisiobi

Posted on 12/15/2012 9:18:12 PM PST by Vince Ferrer

Jamie Foxx has revealed that he finds himself facing racial challenges in everyday situations of his life. The African American actor explained during an interview with Vibe magazine that he is always sensitive about his skin colour. Jamie, 45, admitted that 'Every single thing in my life is built around race'. He told Vibe magazine: 'Cause as black folks we're always sensitive. As a black person it's always racial. 'I come into this place to do a photo shoot and they got Ritz crackers and cheese. 'I'll be like, ain't this a b***h. Y'all didn't know black people was coming.' In the same vein he explained that if he turned up to the photo shoot and there was fried chicken and watermelon, he would also be annoyed at the stereotype.

No, they knew who was coming, they just treat everyone equally. That's why you got what everyone else gets, cheese and crackers.

I think Jamie would be very disappointed to discover the deep, dark secret of white people. That white people have moved on. I think if he could see how little race is a factor in white people lives, he would actually be hurt that we aren't thinking about him all the time, we are just getting up in the morning, going to work, and trying to get home again with the least amount of hassle possible. Coming to terms with that would be a healthy thing for him, even if he has to let go of the demons he feels he has to fight.

Wouldn't 'crackers' be considered....racist?

Racism is an industry in America, especially for Media, Hollywood, and the charlatans. Unfortunately, the racism industry pollutes the amicable air the rest of the Country would like to enjoy.

I think you hit the nail on the head: many of them spend so much time obsessing about what we think of them, and would be shocked to know that most of us don’t think of them much at all.

With the liberal establishment throwing race into everyone’s faces all the time (education, especially) they have breathed new life into skin deep meaning, racism, envy and traibalism. A lot of white people have been attacked by the black racists Jamie is egging on with his “kill all white people” hate. After the Zimmerman race hate fest, many whites were attacked by black mobs in our cities.

I just hope if anyone is inspired to hate and murder by that limo liberal racist snob, it is him and his family who are the victims of the race hate he so loves as his meaning in life.

Life can be a boomerang. He and liberalism in general, should grow beyond the hate meanings and separation of skin and tribes and love everyone and find peace with the past, today and the future. His resentment and hate will eat him and his soul alive. It is the opposite of God and not a safe place to exist as a human.

Jamie Foxx: “’Every single thing in my life is built around race.”

If a white man said that same thing everyone, absolutely everyone - and they would be right! - would conclude that the man is a racist. How is it not racist when a black man says it? And, if it isn’t, how far are we from the society that, for example, Martin Luther King Jr. desired?

Sad. But then “wisdom is justified by its deeds.” (Matthew 11:19)

I never knew that Ritz crackers and cheese was "white people food". I just thought it was a snack.

Does his highness expect caviar and Crystal champagne everywhere he goes?

Seems less racist than just a plain out of touch liberal elitist.

The last thing the Liberals and Democrats want to do is accept that racist views and actions are held by a tiny number of white people today. Racist explanations and “thinking,” where people are judged based on their color, is now a common thread of Liberal thinking. Racial politics has made people rich and materially successful in the US, look at Reverend Jackson and Reverend Al Sharpton. It’s allowed President Obama to escape the normal scrutiny that occurs when a candidate runs for office. If one holds him accountable, well, that’s just sooo racist. Democrat racist thinking is a shield today for the advancement of Fabian socialism. It allows the Left to accuse anyone who prefers the US Constitution to the Democrats destruction of freedom as a racist, and those who support our traditions and our Constitution are, therefore, deemed as beyond human decency. We’re wicked and worse, not PC. Who in his right mind would discuss anything of significance with a real racist? So if you can get a sizable number of people to accept that anyone opposed to Obama’s socialist agenda is a racist, then you already gotten off to a great start in winning the debate. We must always push back against this tactic. Real victims of racism would gladly trade places with Jamie Foxx, and he trivializes those who truly suffer from racism. He’s a fraud.

Jamie Foxx is a multi-millionaire thanks to a system created and built by white men. I doubt he’ll acknowledge that fact.

He is also an idiot to make everything racial.

If white people made everything “racial”, we’d have another war.

What did he want?

Good question. If he had gotten "black people food," yes, he no doubt would have screamed "racism." He got "neutral people food," which he considers "white people food," so he screams racism.

He's just a good old-fashioned attention whore.

So sad, I really used to like Jamie Foxx, I always thought he was like Angela Lansbury, really a performer who could do it all excellently: comedy, drama, music, there aren’t many people really like that.

But lately he’s been talking like a real putz.

He’s a racist, it’s that simple.

Being semi-white {grand parents came from Sicily, and there are lots of kinky heads in the family} makes me very sensitive, especially about people using slurs that include garlic and olive oil.

I cry for days when my inner dago is cruelly hurt by an insensitive black person making racial slurs about whitey.

If they would only understand how us semi-whites have no real identity, I feel put down, just like RG III.

It is so hurtful, I'm going to go and clean my guns.

By and large. It is troubling to know that there are segments of society that see white hooded thugs behind every tree and car. They just don't know that we couldn't care less.
