    Well that most certainly is a logical and balanced response.

    Seeing as how THEY WERE BORN THE **** HERE IN THIS ****HOLE COUNTRY.

    But yet people are so unable to see it from their view? . . . Tragic, really - how we defile a people and then just expect them to get over it like it was nothing.

    THAT note of arrogance is disgusting. . . maybe you should bail out of the country instead?

    Not racist, but obsessed by race.

    In the liberal Democratic sphere, where the bigger a victim you are the more status you have, one's personal identity as a member of a recognized group of victims is something to be upheld, maintained, and stoked. Above all nothing must be allowed to reduce the perceived severity of victimization. No one can be allowed to forget about it. No one can be allowed to assimilate. No one can become too accomplished or successful within the system, not at least without an untoward amount of struggle. And no one can be allowed to break out of that set of behaviors, attitudes, and dispositions that define that group.

    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??
    Go to Virginia. Visit Colonial Williamsburg. Read your history books. 400 years ago white people were slaves in the American colonies. It was not until Bacon's Rebellion that African slaves were used in what is now the US.

    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...
    Well, I'm reminded every day that it's a man's world. So you and Mr. Foxx fee free to go and cut your dicks off!

    Jamie Fox does not have to be color blind. In fact, it is encouraged and accepted for him to take race into account in every single thing that he does.


    My only point in this whole "race discussion" is that an honest discussion cannot be had if one side is too afraid to speak on the issue for being labeled a racist while the other controls the discussion.
    Exactly. How many white people do you ever seen on the Oprah Winfrey Network?

    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.
    So, I'm supposed to be insulted because someone cooks collards for me because I'm from the south?

    Study Bacon's Rebellion. It was NOT about 'skin color.' It was because the colonials figured out that white slaves and black slaves would stick together against the establishment. So to keep their power they decided to have only one flavor of slave and African slaves were powerless to find anyone to stick with them.
