Jamie Foxx: It’s “great” to “kill all the white people”

Actor Jamie Foxx thinks it’s “great” that he got the chance to “kill all the white people” in his new movie, “Django Unchained.”

Foxx was the featured guest on NBC‘s “Saturday Night Live” this week, and his opening monologue was based almost entirely on race.

He referenced his movie, in which he plays a slave, something he considered “whack.” But he told the SNL audience not to worry because he gets free and kills “all the white people in the movie.” He then took his jokes to a whole new and disturbing level when he asked, “How great is that?” The audience laughed and clapped.

This distasteful remark was part of a larger sequence of jokes about how “black is the new white.”

“You know how you know black is in right now? Because the Nets moved to Brooklyn,” Foxx said. “How black is that?” He added that Jay-Z being a partial owner of the team is also black.

The actor then celebrated President Obama’s return to the White House for four more years, noting the POTUS was playing basketball on Election Day, something that also qualifies as “black.” He told the viewers that Obama’s first four years were the white part of him and the next four years will be the black side.

This isn’t the first time in recent memory that Foxx has ruffled some feathers with his public remarks. At the Soul Train Awards, the actor compared President Obama to Jesus Christ, calling the POTUS his “lord and savior.”

But apparently the moral is this — if you’re black, you can get away with it, because being black is in.

    Just curious Jamie….for those of us that descend from Union Civil war soldiers who fought to free the black man… are we included in your rant? I am still trying to get reparations for the FIVE men in my family who fought to free your ancestors (assumption on my part). I’ve said it before: Obama had the POWER to FINALLY bring this country together racially. He has done more damage than any Klan member could ever dream of doing.

    Like all of Obama a celberty supporters Foxx as a brain the size of a pea why else is he such a total idiot

    Now some young teen is going to hear this, and go out for the night hunting. Do they realize how tv influences people? Surenyl they must since they advertise so much everywhere to sell ideas and products.

    I find no joy in saying this, but… The sheer giddiness and glee shown towards the re-election of this president (perhaps only eclipsed by the ‘grave-dancing’ on Romney and continuous media coverage of his life now ‘outside politics’), is a ‘contrarian indicator’ (to borrow a phrase from market-speak), of Massive proportions. In fact, I would suggest that the ‘comeuppance’ in store for those, like Mr. Foxx, who somehow think the re-election results are a ‘holy’ validation of the policies and proposals of the president and his faithful, are going to be so bad, that they will find themselves – figuratively, in a state of suspended disbelief, with nary a ‘Fox News’ soul to blame… Perhaps the exquisite irony in all of this is that when the comeuppance (primarily economic, with the attending social ramifications soon to follow), finally does land within the next 1.5 to 3 years, they will ‘own’ it – all of it…

    Time to start emailing the SNL advertisers. This went beyond bad taste. When Eddie Murphy did his “Kill the White Man” sketch he was playing a fictitious character. This was Jamie Foxx making racial attacks cool. There’s a big difference.

  6. Uriah says:

    Honestly it’s nothing to take seriously. There have been more controversial jokes on the show before. Jamie Foxx definitely brought some of the In Living Color hilarity to SNL. I was working late at DISH the other night so I couldn’t see the show live. A while back, I set up my Hopper from DISH to automatically record the show so I can watch it the next morning. It is nice being able to have the entire season on my DVR with more than enough recording space left for the rest of my favorite shows. Jamie Foxx did great on the show, and I’m looking forward to seeing his new movie soon!

  7. PouringDerision says:

    This is sad. Rabble is right, not everyone supported the idea of slavery and adding, not every white person is deserving of the continuing blame. Jamie is an influential person and he is welding that power irresponsibly, with SNL’s blessing. Mr. Foxx, encouraging such attitudes regarding race, whether black or white or green, is never admirable. Be careful not to become what it is you despise. You seem to already have one foot in that trap.

  8. Annis says:

    Why don’t we just cut off their welfare and then see how cool they are.

    1. Sahara says:

      Who’s “welfare”? You sound no better than obnoxious a** Foxx.

  9. Joe Mama says:

    Nice little echo chamber you guys put together here. Validation is nice, huh? I’m glad to find a place where I can be openly angry about the blacks, too. They’re ruining everything! Do you hear that, Jamie Foxx, you racist person!! Thank you Red Alert for uncovering this grave injustice and bringing it to our attention! NBC shame on you!!!

  10. paul says:

    I quit watching SNL years ago, as it has no relevance anymore,
    as for Jamie Foxx, I knew/know all I need to know….
    there wont be any of his crap on my tv, and I certainly wont be going to see
    or rent any of his movies…or Quentin Tarantinos crap anymore either…

  11. Lisa says:

    I think all the white people should stop paying to see his movies and see how black that is. I know he’s a comedian but this has gone too far. If a white comedian said he thought it was great to kill all black people in his movie half the country would be burned down and we’d never get Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton off our televisions. I thought I was a fan of Foxx..but it seems “the white” fan is not in at this time.

  12. Tammy says:

    So we respond to his supidity with more stupidity??? “Why don’t we just cut off their welfare and then see how cool they are.” Really??? We can not control what others do, say or feel, so lets just focus on our own conduct. Raise our children to do and be better, and do our part (even though it may feel extremely small when compared to a comedican broadcasting on national/world television) in making this country a better place rather than responding to stupidity with more stupidity!

  13. Howard says:

    Since Jannie is such a big Obamination supporter, how come he made this flick in Canada? To avoid U.S. TAXES?? well isn’t this the problem with these big-raciest-community communist organizers!!! They are big on getting people riled up with thier mouth’s, but when in reality they are short on backbone …

  14. nia white says:

    People please stop it! Anytime Black folks speak up about the injustices done to them by whites, it’s soooo wrong. Really–come on he is speaking about a damn movie, and he is a comedian. Black folks are not so immature that they will miss the point being made that he is making and go out and start killing white folks–really!

  15. JC says:

    There are many Django’s in our midst. There are and is no “if’s” “and’s” or “but’s” about it. Many angry and socially engineered young blacks, particularly young ones have a cauldron of anti-White hatred brewing in their souls.
