Jamie Foxx says “black people are the most talented people in the world”

Is anyone surprised that actor Jamie Foxx has made yet another insensitive remark?

According to the ‘Django Unchained‘ star, no other demographic measures up to African-Americans when it comes to talent.

“Black people are the most talented people in the world,” Foxx said during his acceptance speech at last Friday’s NAACP Image Awards.

Foxx was selected as as Entertainer of the Year, and after praising other African-American entertainers, he backhandedly criticized performers of all other races. And while no one is denying that those Foxx mentioned — Harry Belafonte, Gladys Knight and Sidney Poitier — are incredibly gifted, Foxx shouldn’t ignore other talented actors and singers who may not share his skin color.

But then again — should anyone really expect more of the man who says it’s “great” to kill white people and believes President Obama to be his “lord and savior”?

Watch Foxx’s remarks below:

    white people claim they are the best for years black people complain and they ignore them one black man makes a statement and everyone is up in arms. This man is not a role model he’s and entertainer. I’m glad that the world is more global so statements like this can get around and force dialogue so people can see for themselves if and how biased they have been.

    I say O.K brilliant people of the world show me one major city here in the U.S that is controlled by the brilliant people exclusively and I’ll say O.K . Hell I don’t see any lines forming to go back to the Islands or Africa ..I recall when Cape Town S. Africa was a Gem of a city and I rest my case ..
    Still living in mud huts and being ruled by criminals and thugs . Take the mud and straw make some forms and make bricks all the money wasted in the 60′s on the peace core and still they are in mud huts
    Just show me one City that has improved and grown under the leadership of the brilliant people …
