Having seen the context he said it in I don't think he's a racist I just think he's very very pretentious.

Yeah I was just making a statement, I wasn't really disagreeing with you directly. But I do think there's a difference. I think that People of color can do it because they're people of color.

Well I think that's bull****. Black people can be every bit as racist as white people, I have black people who will attest to that.

Being racist against black people is a crime, and crime is for black people.

Okay we can disagree on that but it wasn't racism.
He wasn't saying **** ALL YOU WHITE PEOPLE AND LATINOS BLACK PEOPLE ARE BETTER YOU ****ERS.
He was just kind of... I don't know delusional about black people and their talents.

The same double standard argument has come up with Jamie before though. If you think he's racist blastingas then stop supporting him. You won't be watching the next spiderman movie either
Oh I knew you were. I don't even take offense to his comments hes entitled to them. And i'll be checking out the new Spiderman for sure. Hes too talented an actor to just boycott.

He can be racist all he wants, that's fine. I just think to double standard is a bunch of ****. I'm not convinced there isn't one.

Yes context is great. In many aspects of life(architectural context is something that many people seem to ignore in my experience), but ehhh, I don't think too much context is needed here. He just flat out said it. I would still like to see the context but this is a pretty blatant statement here. If Leonardo DiCaprio said this about white people, or....I dunno, Michael Fassbender, they would be ****ed.

Yeah **** that. I don;t like pretention, and I don't like racism, and this was racism. It is racist to actually ignore the racism in the statement. Weirdly enough.

Lol, never said he was saying that. What he was saying is something more level headed, and thus something that he actually believes and isn't just a mad rant. Its as bad as a white person saying that white people invented everything great.


So a delusional white racist can't be excused? Because it is pretty clear that they are delusional.

Exactly, but the fact that he( a celebrity, not some lunatic racist ) is making these statements to the public, he is alienating his "white" fans to a certain degree and encouraging racism in his "black" fans to a certain extent

It all depends on what you are talking about. White got talent in some fields than whites. Pratically on music. Here is how I see it. I think white people are the best with pop music, rock music or even country music. I think black people tend to be better with rap, R&B, blues, and soul music. That is my response to Jaime Foxx's statement.
