Newsbusters: Known Black Man Jamie Foxx Ushers in Grave New World With Jokes About White People

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Newsbusters’ Associate Editor Noel Sheppard pores tirelessly over leftist news outlets like Saturday Night Live to raise the general public’s awareness of liberal media bias. Without his vigilance, we (since we are not familiar with this news agency Saturday Night Live – perhaps it is one of those “blogs”?) may have missed Jamie Foxx’s vitriolic rant, a verbal orgy of strange observations about black people owning things and being President and being slaves and killing white people, comes just a few weeks after he called President Barack Obama “Our Lord and Savior” on that channel where you can watch Wendy Williams at night if you have a day job.

Sheppard raises a poignant question in response to Jamie Foxx’s remarks, which were obviously intended to celebrate the thought of murdering any white person, and not specifically a group of white people who happened to routinely murder and sell other humans beings.

How does it help race relations in this country when a black actor jokes on national television about killing white people?

Imagine the uproar if a white actor joked about killing all the black people in a new film he was starring in.

Okay we will imagine the zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.



Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • Barbara_

    It's Saturday Night Live. No one saw it, trust me.

    • Terry

      I saw it….by accident. The skit parodying Obama and Boehner was ok, the rest was forgettable.

      • gullywompr

        I dunno, I remember Derbil McDillet.

      • MissTaken

        CNN showed that skit at least 76 times yesterday, and sadly, I caught them all. Stupid Canadian hotel with crummy tv. Ugh.

        • SorosBot

          But at least you get to enjoy the great Canadian weather, with the temperature at -7 in their strange Canada moon measurements, whatever that is in real degrees!

    • Antispandex

      Last funny thing I saw was Eddie Murphy doing that "Kill my landlord" bit. C-I-L-L….my landlord! Hilarious to me for some reason. Oh, and Tippy Turtle. Ah the good old days of watching S.N.L. and smoking weed….you have to have a prescription now. They've ruined everything.

      • emmelemm

        Not in Washington! Yeehaw!

        Kill my landlord!

      • Barbara_

        Last funny thing I saw was anything and everything Gilda did. God, can you believe they renamed Gilda's cancer foundation because no one remembers Gilda anymore? *sigh*

      Barbs, I haven't had time to be on here lately, but I still love you. Just wanted you to know.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    It's only okay to joke about killing "all" of the "anything" if that "anything" is "lawyers."

    • emmelemm

      Well, c'mon. I mean, that's justified.

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      It's actually racist of Noel Sheppard to point out how racist it was.

      Right? I mean, that's what they always tell us.

      how is anything on SNL supposed to do anything??

    "you can watch Wendy Williams"

    do you mean to tell me that the Plasmatics are still around?

    Edit, never mind. Wendy O died back in 1998; didn't know that.

    SNL should do an experiment and have Pat Buchanan as a guest host and he can make jokes about the end of White America As We Know It — I'm sure Pat's rollicking good humor will make the evening especially memorable.

    It would have been ok if he had waved that Dixie flag around during his monologue.

  • kingofmeh

    yes, just imagine if the black characters were the first characters killed in all the action movies starred in by white men. just imagine . . . .

  • SheriffRoscoe

    Back in the day, slaves in movies would happily sing songs and not try and kill the white people. Sheppard raises an important point.

    I just watched the video… That's it? Really? This guy's mad over that one little reference to killing all the white people in the movie, which in this case means the slave owners that treated him like shit and made his life miserable? Wow, must be a slow rage news day if that's supposed to be a big deal.

      They had to work hard to come up today's Two-Minutes-Hate.

      This is Newsbusters we're talking about here where about half the articles consist of the "Network interviewer did not stick knife up to the hilt in the Democratic spokesman's throat." variety.

    Killing white people in a movie about slave owning white people is a crime against humanity. Where is the UN? Why is he not before The Hague?

      …and they know you got a smaller dick than they do.

        I hear it was the English's frustration with not being able to cure their smallcox is what killed all the Native Americans. :(

    • Redgyal

      Or eat spicy foods.

    • Negropolis

      Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers/Gene Kelly libel!

  • http://wonkette.com ChillBill

    The SNL jokes are so bad not even Conservatives get it.

  • Antispandex

    Well, the show must have really gone into the toilet. Everyone knows there is very little funny about white people…other than Honey Boo Boo and her family, and Dancing with the "Stars", and Call of the Wildman, and…Shit! We are pretty funny!

    • SheriffRoscoe

      America's Funniest Home Videos. A dozen rednecks getting whacked in the nuts in every episode. Never gets dull!

      • BaldarTFlagass

        I just wish they wouldn't cut away before the guy starts retching and screaming in agony.

  • Abernathy

    This is the worst crime against white folks since Jefferson was forced to own slaves.

    • Negropolis

      And Washington, and Harrison, and Jackson, and…

  • Pete in Williamsburg

    Should have used conservative jokes: My band-aid is the Purple BooBoo Award, We Came Unarmed…This Time, Ballot Box-Bullet Box. No uproar needed, just enjoy their pleasant comedy!

    How does it help race relations in this country when a black actor jokes on national television about killing white people?

    So when noted comedian Rush Limbaugh makes jokes about the Magic Negro….?

    • BaldarTFlagass

      "He's a Halfrican!" AHAHAHAHAHA that shit is just so fucking funny.

  • kittensdontlie

    I heartily welcome our new black overseers, and await my final destination.

  • DCBloom

    It's a Quentin Tarantino flick. Everybody always dies in the end.

  • HarryButtle

    I wanted to post a link, but I couldn't find a decent video of the old Richard Pryor/Chevy Chase skit from back when SNL was funny. You old timers know the one I'm talking about…

  • Dr. Matt

    More whining from the politically correct teabaggerzzzzzz.

  • GhostBuggy

    You guys should check out some of the comments over at the AV Club. Craziness.

    Unrelated to the AV Club, but I really love the whole false equivalency re: race jokes. They do the whole reversal thing and say, "what if it was about black people being killed?" Of course, black people and white people come with different cultural baggage, so if you reverse the situation, it completely changes the context. Their dumb idea only works if we've evolved to a state where we're emotionally free of that context.

    They then, of course, remind you that racism will never go away, you stupid liberal, so stop trying to achieve some hippie, PC utopia.

    So, to sum up: there will always be racists, and you can't mention it or the fact that some people are treated less fairly than others. Nice little scheme they've cooked up!

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      Their dumb idea only works if we've evolved to a state where we're emotionally free of that context.

      I think that's Sheppard's whole point, that the right wing believes were are free of that context because, you know, Civil Rights! Marting Luther King, Jr!

      As if things are magically better when only half the nation recognizes the value of equality.

    • emmelemm

      Everyone's a little bit racist!

      • BaldarTFlagass

        Well, I know there's a lot of white people that I don't like at all. But it ain't because they're white.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    "a black actor jokes on national television about killing white people?"

    Maybe he wasn't joking.

  • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid_

    Normal people are bored by SNL like this. But wingnuts are outraged by SNL like this!

    Hahaha…silly whitey.

  • TootsStansbury

    Are these morons going to experience some simultaneous, rage-induced cerebral hemorrhage causing mass wingnut head assplosions? Cause that would be cool.

  • MiniMencken

    I am still trying to imagine Noel Sheppard formulating a logical sequence of three sentences. After that, I might devote some time to the uproar.

  • http://inappropriatejobpostings.blogspot.com/ fuflans

    on the plus side, if you give em some bad comedy maybe they'll forget about susan rice and tax increases.

  • http://intensedebate.com/people/mrblifil mrblifil

    Saw Django Unchained the other night. He was great. Whoever is criticizing him now are going to soil themselves once that thing is released.

  • PopeEdgardo

    I just thought it was moderately unfunny but now that Noel Sheppard has opened my eyes I am scarred shitless, being as I’m a white guy and all. Did Noel Sheppard mention anything about Jamie Foxx coming for my daughter? He's probably going to come for my daughter. I can sense it!

  • http://hong-kong-actresses.blogspot.com/ Chow Yun Flat

    After reading a few of the comments on Newsbusters it is clear that Jamie Foxx still has work to do with some white people.

    Newsbusters is the land of loonies, one comment: "White folks put a man on the moon, essentially invented all things, and won two world wars…"

  • Negropolis

    I'm a pretty religious watcher of SNL, so I saw this. I switched during his opening monologue, mostly because I didn't find it too funny, and his and other comic's racial humor really starts to get tired unless it's really creative.

    As for the controversy? Yeah, there isn't one.

    Here's one of the charming comments:

    "African-Americans OWE the caucasians for not sending them back to Africa as both Jefferson and Lincoln proposed."


  • redarmyzombie

    "Imagine the uproar if a white actor joked about killing all the black people in a new film he was starring in."

    Ummm…Black Hawk Down?

    Ooh, ooh, I know! what if we took all of these "black people' in said movie, and replaced them with Arabs! because it's not like THAT'S been ever done before!

  • John

    Noel Sheppard would REALLY hate Abraham Lincoln. Of course, Lincoln was just a RINO.

  • CindynEncinitas

    That was the best SNL episode I have seen in years and years. Pure comedy gold. So shut the fuck up, white devils.
