Here We Go Again: Jamie Foxx says Black People Are 'the Most Talented People in the World'

4798Actor Jamie Foxx (pictured) is drawing heavy criticism for a remark he made at the 44th NAACP Image Awards on Feb. 1st. "Black people are the most talented people in the world," are the words that have some conservatives riled up.
Foxx made the remarks during his acceptance speech for "Entertainer Of The Year." Shortly after the show, conservative news sites took the actor to task. "Can you imagine the heat a white actor would get if he said at a nationally televised awards ceremony, 'White people are the most talented people in the world?'" wrote Noel Sheppard, penning a reaction piece for NewsBusters, a site that dedicates itself to exposing liberal media bias. "Probably be the end of his or her career."

Red Alert Politics, a site for young conservatives, called the comment a "backhanded" attack on "performers of all other races."

"Foxx shouldn't ignore other talented actors and singers who may not share his skin color," wrote Kelsey Osterman in another response piece.
