    'I come into this place to do a photo shoot and they got Ritz crackers and cheese.

    'I'll be like, ain't this a b***h. Y'all didn't know black people was coming.'
    Foxx sounds like a self indulgent jerk.

    Often, when someone treats a Black person wrongly, in their eyes anyway, it's 'racism'. To a woman it's sexism, to a Muslim it's Islamophobia, to a Gay it's homophobia.

    The fact is that people behave badly regularly, often without meaning to, or no harm was meant.

    I'm a White guy and none of the above so when someone is rude to me I accept that the person is being rude to me. I have no fallback position that this person is being racist, sexist, or homophobic, it's just a rude person. That's life and we have to learn to deal with it, and not fall back on the cheapest possible ( and whiniest) explanations.

    I seriously wonder if some people here realize that Jamie Foxx is not the the spokesmen for all black people in America.

Therefore, racism is above everything in power and can NEVER be removed from humanity and therefore it will always be there as a staple, as the essence of what it means to be a human.
    Again, this is only if all above are TRUE, which they are.

    If you do not want the above theorem to be valid, then we just have to agree that Jamie Foxxx, like many others, are just stupid racists.
    The non-existence of racism is unattainable because it exists only in a perfect world. So why not, at the very least, do what we can to minimize it?

    People get killed every day, do we just sit back and say "oh well, people are getting murdered, that's just human nature, stop complaining"? No, we recognize that people will get killed by other people, but we do what we can to lessen it.

    Sure, there are some times where I'm sure people perceive racism when it isn't racism. I don't think it's "a lot" of the time, though.

    Yeah, that's called "white privilege" and the reality of racism, sexism, homophobia and other forms of discrimination are not "cheapest, whiniest possible explanations." It's a reality you will rarely, if ever, have to wonder if someone is thinking less of you because of your race or have to wonder whether or not people are going to see your failure as a representation of all blacks or Muslims or Hispanics and so on. Be thankful for that instead of denigrating people who don't have that luxury.

    Oh, that's understood. There is no White person who speaks for all White people either. Jerks come in all sizes, shapes and colors.

    And there you have it. The leftwing hero is a bonafide modern day racist.
    Did I miss something about where Jamie Foxx became a "leftwing hero?"

    Do reply to the rest of it. I won't let up. I want that issue to be addressed, the one I made in the latter statement part.

    As for your dodgy reply: Yes and No. Racism has become such a diluted term that it can mean anything you want it to mean. So I won't debate that with you. I will just say that when I think about it, from a logical standpoint, supremacism and racism are 2 different things and supremacism can be an ideology that can be racially based or not. Racism as I said, can be anything you want it to be because at this point, who the hell cares. It is a diluted term which carries only automaton emotions to the user and the victim who is accused of it. That is why there is a lot of controversy about it.

    But back to the big idea.Reply to this, especially what is written in the last part.
    -------------------------


    Some people keep on holding that torch that says that blacks are underpriviledged and the victims of racism, especially from white males and all those fake, bull**** stereotypes. The white man holding down the black man where as that just isn't true.

    There are black congressmen(and even the president). There are black CEOs (i.e. the CEO of Mcdonalds is a black man). There are black movie stars and millionaires and billionaires and everything. So do tell me how come there is still racism?

    You know what is racist? Eric Holder refusing to put the black panther party on trial because it would denigrate "his people". That is real racism right there.

    You know what else is racist? The KKK in the 1930's.
    You know what else is racist? The fact that in California, mexicans and blacks are the most violent crime victims of each other. That means that blacks get killed mostly by mexicans in violent crimes and viceversa.

    You know what else is racist? Claiming that racism is influencing every aspect of your life and you encounter it keeping you down every day despite living in showbis, the most liberal environment in the ENTIRE world. The ENTIRE world.

    With this in mind, I would like to make the following proposition.

    Given the following evidence.

    A) There are prominent blacks in all aspects of public life (government, congress, etc)
    B) There are prominent blacks in all aspect of intellectual life (thomas sowell, Neil degrasse tyson, the most popular ones)
    C) There are prominent blacks in sports (you name it)
    D) There are prominent blacks in business (CEO of Mcdonalds and Xerox-> its even a black woman)
    E) There are prominent blacks in showbis, the most liberal environemnt in the world.
    F) Everywhere in general... you can find prominent blacks

    And yet, despite all these things being TRUE, there is still racism, and racism is in fact a MAJOR problem in the world, even in the MOST LIBERAL PLACE in the world, then the only logical conclusion to derive from this is the following: That racism is part and parcel of human nature. In fact, it is impossible to be human without being a racist, and this is equally valid for all races. In fact, it is inhumane to not be a racist because despite even the most equalitarian ideologies being shoved down people's throats in all aspects of life, racism still prevails even in the most heavily influenced areas of those ideologies. Therefore, racism is above everything in power and can NEVER be removed from humanity and therefore it will always be there as a staple, as the essence of what it means to be a human.
    Again, this is only if all above are TRUE, which they are.

    If you do not want the above theorem to be valid, then we just have to agree that Jamie Foxxx, like many others, are just stupid racists.
