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.

Nice opinion. Words can and do hurt. Check out some psychology on it. Thanks.

Nice opinion. IQ has nothing to do with it.

However, research indicates otherwise.

His comments vere on racism. Either way, words due hurt.

Threats are threats.

He felt good killing off whites as a character?

Poorly done joke.

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.
