Jamie Foxx has proved to be very outspoken when it comes to sharing his views on the differences between black people and white people.

The iconic actor and singer spoke on the matter in the December/January issue of VIBE about how everything in his life is built around race.

“As black folks we’re always sensitive,” Foxx said. “As a black person it’s always racial. 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*tch. Y’all didn’t know black people was coming.

What’s with all this white sh*t? By the same token, if there is fried chicken and watermelon I’ll say ain’t this a b*tch? So, no matter what we do as black people it’s always gonna be that.”

Foxx, who plays a slave in the controversial film, revealed that he feels he is forced to compromise who he is when working in a professional capacity.

Unfortunately, we will always live in a world where prejudice and racial inequality is present, and the most we can do is help to make those around us more tolerant.
