    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I agree with Sam, that I don't think it's racist - he's just hypersensitive to things. You see it all the time. "Why'd you cook fried chicken? Because I'm black? Uh... no, it's because you told me once it's your favorite meal."

    I love Jamie Foxx, and think he's a great actor, a great singer and a great piano player. He's also very funny. I just wish he wouldn't turn everything into race. Reminds me kind of a little like that Samuel L. Jackson character in Die Hard with a Vengeance. Dooood, not everything is about race.

    Well, I guess that would be true as long as you are never critical of anything an "African-American" does.

    I would say the personal issues are as much your way as the other. Extremes either way don't help the situation... too sensitive or incredibly insensitive. FYI I don't recall anyone asking you so your posting in this thread indicates you do see at least some ado to it.

    There are things that can be discussed where one is critical without being racist. I just don't think a black man being ethnically aware of his difference from white people is one of them. For instance, I am ethnically aware of my difference when I am the only white guy in a group of black folk.

    It's easy for folks to say "why do you have to make everything about race" especially when the person saying that hasn't experienced racism. Rather, if that person doesn't experience racism on a daily ****ing basis, I almost cannot take their comments seriously.

    Unfortunately, something that a lot of people don't understand is that simply having dark skin in our society automatically makes you a victim of racism. That's just how it is right now. So, it's sort of ridiculous that people want to dictate what Jamie Foxx should or should not be offended by.

    And there you have it. The leftwing hero is a bonafide modern day racist.
    Can't say I really blame him - our nation decided for CENTURIES that for black people and other minorities EVERYTHING WOULD BE ALL ABOUT THEIR RACE. The concept that IT'S NOT is quite new.

    It just means we still have a heck of a long ****ing way to go - honestly.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Sorry, but you are not a victim. This post screams of people being victimized by the color of their skin. Come on. While I do understand that racism still happens, it's time to stop feeling like you are being victimized. Get down off the cross. I'm sure somebody else needs the wood.
