Jamie Foxx under fire for saying black people are the most talented2/11/2013
One person's heartfelt words are another's offensive statement. Jamie Foxx's NAACP Entertainer of the Year award acceptance speech on Feb. 1, in which he paid tribute to luminaries like Harry Belafonte and Sidney Poitier, was deemed "moving" by Hollywood.com the next day. Now the actor is under fire from conservatives for declaring from the dais, "Black people are the most talented people in the world." A columnist on NewsBusters, a site dedicated to "exposing and combating liberal media bias," wrote, "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?' Probably be the end of his or her career." [Source]
