Skip to comments.Jamie Foxx: 'Black People Are The Most Talented People In The World'

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):
He’s right if he’s talking about football and basketball.
Jamie ought to start a new negro space program:
Good, so let them pay the bill...
Very well said.
If your Black you can be a racist, wait I forgot, only white people are racist! I am sorry for Jamie Foxx, too much drugs and alcohol and maybe STD’s. I don’t believe talent has a color, unlike some racist Black folks. But if he is going to start this sh*t, I believe that a majority of the great comedians, and I’m not talking about those so called comedians that can’t tell a joke without swearing, were of a certain ethnic persuasion and it wasn’t Black! And the so called Kings of comedy? give me a break!
“Tap dancing and basketball aside, name a talent.”
Musician, doctor, chemist, physicist, engineer, businessman, attorney(ok, the glove didn’t fit so they had to acquit) poet....
The list goes on and on.
Remember, for every black dude carrying around a milk crate during Katrina, there is a white dude going, “hey Bubba, hold muh beer and watch this.”
Yes, it is racist. Just like Foxx is.
Foxx, you pathetic moron, see my tagline.
I owes you a brew!
I like how he really tries to go all out when it comes to the part with the six words that he actually knows :)
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!
Divide & entertain...or...bread & circuses BUMP!
When Bill Cosbys son was killed in a high jacking (by a Russian Immigrant) Mrs Cosby made the statement Sure doesnt take them long to pick up the American White Ways.
Bill Cosby is as much a racist as his wife is.
Who cares what Foxx says...
Sponging off the government is a talent?
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.
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.
