    There you have it folks, acknowledging that race plays a role in your life is now racist.

    American has taken the whole 'racist' thing to new heights and I get why he's doing it. If he calls anything or anyone which even mentions 'race' 'racist', he doesn't have to feel so bad about his own feelings toward race.

    And there you have it. The leftwing hero is a bonafide modern day racist.
    I completely agree. And, sad part is that he thinks the rest of us are.

    I am totally sick of Black people and ''you took us from Africa to make us your slaves'' It was 200 years ago..we have paid ten-fold..

    Two hundred years ago...white people were slaves in Britain..children sent up chimneys...agricultural workers living in hedges..and when society had finished with you..there were always the workhouses..

    We send Billions of pounds to Africa..and yet our students take gap years to dig latrines and fresh water wells..

    It goes to the warlords of Africa,,the poor don't see a dime..

    Our government has promised Africa 34 million next year..is it for the poor..or is it to grease palms??

    Remember, he's an actor, and while individual actors, directors, and producers may be racially enlightened, Hollywood as a whole still has problems in regards to race.

    Especially when minority actors can get only certain kinds of roles, not necessarily because of the prejudices of Hollywood but rather the prejudices Hollywood thinks the rest of the country still has.

    So no, I don't think he's racist at all.

    Okay. I accept that as a reasonable way of putting it: that he's hypersensitive to racial things.

    I think we also need to acknowlege though that hypersensitivity to race does not help the idea of making race irrelevant and achieving a color-blind society. It hinders it.

    Meh, when was the last time you saw a movie with a black leading man? Not a comedy or a popcorn action flick starring will smith. A serious movie with a chance to win awards, that also doesn't revolve it's plot around the blackness of the character?

    Nothing racist in what he said.

    Don't you think that black people have created their own culture..e.g. Smack my bitch up..Gangsta's...Rappers who are worshipped because they have been shot/stabbed/killed...

    Is this all they can aspire to??

    Denzel Washington seems to do well in the drama department. The last movie I saw of his was the one with the runaway train that had nothing to do with the blackness of his character (whatever that means)

    And there you have it. The leftwing hero is a bonafide modern day racist.

    If that is a bona fide to you, PLEASE have others read the Certificate of Authenticy on your NAZCAR plates!

    You just add a bit more weight to Foxx's point. Many folks in this country, usually the ones who can't stand out in the sun for very long without a slathering of SPF30, seem incrediably insensitive to any other culture but their own. Now if Foxx did some bonehead thing for all to see there would be a line of the SPF crowd lined up to cluck about it- such gems like part of the Sharpton crowd, or typical urban epic fail, or perhaps reference being raised by an 'inner city' single mother...

    Mr. Foxx just pointed out how often and in so many ways he is reminded it is a white man's world and he has the pull to at least attempt to remind the SPF crowd there are a few other types around.

    Perhaps a few of the SPFs have a bias of their own reading interweb stories...
