Ok, so he worships Obama calling him God in one skit. Fine, we're all ok with crazy views.

This isn't so funny. What if a white actor thought it was cool to kill all black folks? Really?

Even the white guy that helps django in his movie gets killed?

So, if you suffer, it's ok to glorify crimes against another race?

If one is black and steals bread he should get away, but one who is white should not because he is white?

I'd like to hear more of your theory behind this. Thank you.

Why are you so worked up over what he said? It wasn't even funny (tho I've never really found Foxx to be my sort of comedy tea), and it's a Tarantino movie at that...you'll find worst in his own films than what actors in them say off the set.

Personally, Foxx's comment just falls into a line part of a culture of race-based jokes, which are tasteful if done right, balanced out and not relied on the mere shock of them. But a lot of so-called "comedians" think if you put <ethnic group> + "people" in the same sentence and laugh your way through, it'll be funny. No, not unless there's substance there, and a real joke too.

I think Foxx was trying to be funny when saying it, but as a joke it fell a bit flat. In the context of the movie tho, it's fitting ('cuz that's essentially what his character does, to put it rashly).

I think we aughta also be more careful when using the term "racist" too, tho it's really something for a whole different time. Cut to the chase, Foxx made a joke as a black guy about killing white people. Joke isn't funny, but only b/c his delivery sucked. When you say 'racist' you make it sound like he had malicious intent in saying it; clearly he did not. But it's to a point in this country now where you can't even talk about someone of a different skin tone w/o being called a racist by others, and that's especially sad.

Why am I worked up? So, I'm not to be worked up (which is trying to imply how I should feel) and also saying I'm to watch about the term 'racist'.

I agree it's thrown around, I said 'verge' on that term.

When you have school shootings, people can be sensitive to that term about someone killing people and thinking it's fun, even for comedy. Some people did not laugh in that scene.

I'm don't actually know when Foxx said the comments; if it was right around the Sandy shootings, it was poor timing. Even then tho I'm certain he didn't mean it maliciously, and the world has to keep moving on even despite the tragedy so...

Again, it's really sad what happened to those people in that shooting; if I were in their shoes I'd be upset over hearing a comment like Foxx's too. And even while not in their shoes, it's a pretty unacceptable comment on many levels. But you can't keep the world from doing it's thing. Best to hope they don't make those comments in spite of your suffering, and just don't bother to listen to them if you can help it.

Actually, I'm particularly mum about another comment Foxx made regarding Hollywood's role in the whole shooting. Telling the industry to censor itself, essentially. But that would be giving the killer more power, and curtailing creative expression. We just have to hope the industry is ethically smart enough to bring a balanced approach to its violence, but saying it has to pretend it and guns don't exist by banning them from their films? Unacceptable.

I don't think Saturday Night Live was the most wise place to say the joke. I know it's a comedy sketch show, but with millions watching, just didn't seem smart to me. Nor was the delivery on the joke any good.

I do think, that if a white guy said it, but "killing blacks would be okay", then the liberals would go absolutely bonkers.

I dont care what he said, hell he can say what ever he doggone pleases, just about. Thats the neat thing about the 1st amendment. You can spout off whatever the heck you want almost and no one can really do anything about it. Tell that to Michael Richards and Don Imus though and they'd probably call you boldfaced liar.

Look, I can see how what he said may offend someone. It certaintly doesnt offend me because I highly doubt Jamie Foxx wants to kill all the white people, they watch his movies too. He said it for laughs, and I get the humor, and it the whole monologue was actually kinda funny, I wont lie.

What I dont like is the political correctness that says he can go on SNL and say that, but if, say, Larry the Cable Guy went up there and said "I killed all the black people, how great is that?" he would be crucified.

Actually no. The first Amendment doesn't allow hate speech anymore or threat. Hanging a noose with a fake dead body is offensive and not free speech.

Yeah, well sometimes somethings aren't funny, or they have bad jokes.

Yeah, seems PC works against the majority, and not equal to all.

Good job going to an extremely self-centered right-wing blog for this.

Let's not bring up the fact that Jamie Foxx is a comedian or has made hundreds of skits were he makes fun of black people.

And yes white comedians have made jokes against black people. Please don't get your pants in a bunch. :)

The website is, not Jamie Foxx.

And yes I have talked to a lot of white who make holocaust jokes and complain about me being politically correct, yet if someone makes a 9/11 joke it's like they caused the end of the world. People make Holocaust and Hiroshima/Nagasaki joke every time they can.

And it's great that you don't condone it, but the reality is that it still occurs everywhere.

Isn't that just a judgement? So Jamie Fox is peachy for this?

Well sad, it's one thing to talk about your own race, it's another for another race. Such a self-deprecating humor. I think the 'Red Neck' jokes by a 'red neck' are ok if they find it ok.

Yeah, shame. We shouldn't slay others with words as a joke. The whole 'yo mama's so fat, or old etc' Or 'you're to x, y z.'

A comedian gets paid to say stuff like that, and ignores political correctness. :D That's what supposedly makes them funny. No one is free from their jokes, not even the sickly. As said before, if you want to crucify one, you must crucify them all.

And no, humans will just remain dumb, when one problem is solved they'll just make another, it can't be helped.

Genocide is never funny, but impossibilities are. White people in America have no reason to fear widespread racial violence like black people can and have suffered, and certainly never suffer the fate of being wiped out of a mainstream movie. Foxx's joke was an inversion of cultural expectations, which is where the humor lies.

Seems white people complain about how sensitive black people are towards arguable racist dialogue/behavior, but white people nearly piss themselves if a black person says "nigger" on TV. When Dave Chapelle and Alec Baldwin did their white person impersonations I thought it was hysterical, I didn't find either person offensive. While Jamie Fox isn't funny regardless of what he's saying, I don't see why anyone cares, especially if he does kill all the white people in his movie. White btw.

ok im a black educated female that enlisted in the military and currently working on a college degree so no not all black people act this way but here is what i have to agree on and feel ashamed about:

a majority of black people do act ignorant and it shows

i never agree on ignorance nor think using the N word amongst the race is 'hip and cool'

the only thing i have to say about Jamie is by him being a comedian he was probably potraying how in almost every scary movie or some movies of significance; the black person usually dies or gets killed off. So he was bragging about reversed roles. Do i think he should have....no, because when black people do act like this they do for attention (rappers, celebrities, actors) and at some point when it seems funny, they dont know that they really do hurt the large population of minorities that are actually working hard to get somewhere.

Well that's not a revelation because we already know every brown skinned person is not a comedian.

If Mr Foxx indeed says he kills all the white people in the movie, I would find that funny because it's sarcastic and a role reversal. Nothing to get worked up about.

As to the black getting killed off in movies, I agree, it's very annoying to see that, and I'm white. I get irritated. I loved "Deep Blue" with Samuel L. Jackson, but hated what happened in the one scene. I'm glad LL. COOl J survived.

It would be different if he said, "There was only a black cast an the only white person died, what's up with that?"

Vs, killing 'all' the white people as more of an ethnic cleansing.

Last I checked, Jamie Foxx was still a comedian who still makes jokes. And jokes aren't serious beliefs. I think the writer, on that obviously conservative-biased website, is overreacting like a typical Fox News "reporter" does over anything race-related. At worst, Jamie's material was just relying too much on saying "how black is that?" to be funny, but they were still jokes and most of it was still funny to people. Maybe it wasn't as funny as he hoped, but whatever. They're still jokes.

What if a white actor thought it was cool to kill all black folks? Really?

But it's not. And apparently you haven't listened to a lot of white comics lately, because they make race jokes just as much: [link]

Even the white guy that helps django in his movie gets killed?

First of all, thanks for spoiling a significant detail of the movie for people who haven't seen it, jackass. :|
Secondly, the movie has nothing to do with any of this and Jamie Foxx had nothing to do with the plot or script of the movie.
