Jamie Foxx is hosting Saturday Night Live and the right wing is sure to be upset with his reference to President Obama being back in the White House, “how black is that?” He said “my president, President Obama is back in the White House for four more years” and he will be “extra black these next four years.”

“…Now the first four years was the white side of him, because I don’t know if you saw him on Ellen when he was dancing and everything. I don’t know what this is. That wasn’t President Obama, that was President Barry Gibb Obama. But the next four years he’s even changing his name from to President Barack Dikembe Mutombo Tupac Mandela Hussein Obama X.”

Here’s Jamie Foxx “How Black is That” monologue:

I knew right wing blogger Noel Sheppard from News Busters would throw a hissy-fit over the comedian’s comments. The Drudge Report is also running with this as the first link on its page. Here’s what Sheppard wrote today:

How does it help race relations in this country when a black actor jokes on national television about killing white people? One has to believe that his opening monologue was approved by SNL’s writers, meaning they were in on it.

Imagine the uproar if a white actor joked about killing all the black people in a new film he was starring in. That would probably be the end of his career. By contrast, for Foxx, this will probably win him another Oscar.

Jamie Foxx also mocked Tyler Perry as Alex Cross, playing two characters — Alex Cross and Madea — in Alex Cross 2. It was funny, though I think his performance so far is pretty flat, particularly during the game show skit. The use of the b-word was just a bit too much for me.

One thing was evident during SNL, is that Jamie Foxx is a decent singer and dancer, a good actor and a mostly funny comedian, who will certainly ruffle some feathers during his performance. He was promoting his Christmas blockbuster, “Django Unchained,” starring Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio and Kerry Washington, set to open December 25.

    Yeah, I saw theshow. Nothing funnier than the idea of killing all the white people, right? I was appalled by the show. It was nothing but Jamie Foxx doing the race thing. There was the one about killing white people (which got a few wild cheers from audience members!), then there was the one about how white people can’t dance. Let’s see Jamie do a little River Dance. Then there was the game show where white people acted scared of black Jamie, who was playing a black host calling them all bitches. Ever so funny. Can you imagine if the races had been reversed in these skits?

    The Crystals commercial was pretty funny, and so was the Tyler Perry skit. Too bad there was so much anti-white racism on the show.

      I couldn’t believe how hideous the opening skit was-Obama the Merciful showing sympathy for someone who didn’t support him-but the Foxx black racist crap, killing all the white people, helped me decide to tune out SNL and NBC for the last time.

      • SoCalPatriot — I didn’t find the monologue funny in the least. I am not a fan of Jamie Foxx. In fact, I believe he is very over-rated, but he’s no raunchier than Bill Maher.

    His racist anti-white stunt was disgusting. So much anti-white hate by his kind. I’m so sick and tired of it.

    • Jason — No more disgusting that Ted Nugent and Rush Limbaugh’s rants.

      • PPMAA5

        We are talking racist comments here against whites…try to stay on topic, I know that is difficult for you liberals.

  • PPMAA5

    Racism apparently is only when it is against blacks. Will never watch Jamie Foxx again.

    Jaime Foxx can kiss my big white A**!

    Soon after his Django “kill all the white people” monologue on SNL, Foxx appeared on Craig Ferguson’s late night show. There, he whined and sniffled *poor me!* that Fox News was unfairly denouncing him & had taken him out of context. Wake up, Jamie — you’re on YouTube, dude. It’s there for all to see. Nothing was taken out of context, nor was Fox News the only source for criticism. Considering this is soon after the Obama “Lord & Savior” proclamation, you’re a lucky man that the ultra-leftwing media is giving you cover.

    Screw you Jamie Fox. You diminutive little reject.
    I heard he is sensitive about his height and hates when people bring up his character on In Living Color, where he dressed as a woman. If anybody ever has the misfortune to meet him, ask him about In Living Color.
