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

by Taylor Huffman

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.

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

Terry December 10, 2012 at 3:29 pm

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

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

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!

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.

Not in Washington! Yeehaw!

Kill my landlord!

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

emmelemm December 10, 2012 at 3:31 pm

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

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

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

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.

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 December 10, 2012 at 3:31 pm

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

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.

GhostBuggy December 10, 2012 at 3:51 pm

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!

actor212 December 10, 2012 at 3:55 pm

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 December 10, 2012 at 3:58 pm

Everyone's a little bit racist!

BaldarTFlagass December 10, 2012 at 4:03 pm

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 December 10, 2012 at 3:57 pm

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

Maybe he wasn't joking.

Chet Kincaid_ December 10, 2012 at 3:58 pm

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

MiniMencken December 10, 2012 at 4:18 pm

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.

fuflans December 10, 2012 at 4:33 pm

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

mrblifil December 10, 2012 at 4:38 pm

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 December 10, 2012 at 4:45 pm

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!

Chow Yun Flat December 10, 2012 at 4:56 pm

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

Negropolis December 11, 2012 at 12:57 am

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.

american__mutt December 11, 2012 at 1:24 am

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."

Sigh…

redarmyzombie December 11, 2012 at 2:37 am

"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 December 11, 2012 at 2:41 am

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