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.

Find Something You Love To Do, Surrender To It And Let It Kill You

We have passions – all of us.

Some require a surgical floor, bodies on the table, carved open and needing saving. Others require […]

How A Coalition Effort May Or May Not Bring Peace To Israel

We could spend hours swapping opinions about the Balfour Declaration, Israeli settlers, whether or not Palestine can peacefully co-exist with Israel, whether or not Hamas should be empowered and a myriad of subjects until we’re blue in the face. All of the rhetoric and arguing doesn’t mean squat right now. Here is the situation: Civilians […]

The Robin Thicke Twitter Q&A Went Really Bad, Really Fast

Robin Thicke is quickly becoming the laughing stock of the music world. His lyrics are pretty misogynistic, and his desperate attempts at winning back Paula Patton are, well, desperate. I don’t know why, but someone over at VH1 thought it would be a good idea to host a Twitter Q&A with the “Blurred Lines” singer, […]
