I usually do not post stories like this but like the writer said "Can you imagine the outrage a white actor who get if they said : White people are the most talented people in the world.
Why isn't this all over the news?
Anyone dismissing the bias in our media is part of the problem.

Black people as a rule sure aren't known for their intelligence. Jamie Fox is just another example.

There are good actors of all racial backgrounds. If he meant only black he is wrong. So I don't know what he was saying in in context but if he meant only black actors he was defineatly wrong.

I am glad I live in a predominantly White state. Dem folks tend to walk a little more humbly when they are out numbered 6 to one, especially out here in the west where mens wear dem big pistols on their hips. No time to try and flants that black pride BS. Best for the brothers to stay humble and avoid conflict cause if they be looking for a fight, they damn sure came to the right place.

What Fox said exemplifies the typical line of thought among American blacks.
Ask one if blacks are better athletes than whites, almost all will say "Of Course" yet ask if whites are smarter than blacks and you will be viewed as a racist. It's all selective. You can see the hypocrisy daily.
Equality among races was reached many years ago with the civil rights movement, now the quest for civil rights is a misnomer for exclusive rights for American blacks.
Do you wonder why we have a black president ( He defines himself that way) and yet racial division is worse now than its been in decades.
American black are losing their long and loved excuse of being the victim, of being held back.
The barriers have long been removed yet as a race, American blacks are not moving forward and it's causing them to get uncomfortable because there is no one to blame now except themselves.

Once again this is another topix put on this board by JIM PICKENS. Can't he find any more interesting and mentally stimulating topix to put out here. Sounds like a Racist to me! Who the hell cares what Jamie Foxx thinks. How about Dick Cheney buys multi-million dollar ranch in Montana after making 150 million from Haliburton stock! Of course dead brain republicans still think Saddam had weapons of mass destruction and Cheney would never con us into a war so he and bush could make billions. The book of proverbs says wisdom cries aloud in the streets, meaning many in America lack the wisdom and understanding to realize a white cllar criminal when he is stairing in their face.

Did you read my post, I posted this this to enumerate another instance of our media's hypocrisy and bias.
Cheney hasn't been VP for quite awhile now and Halliburton is still doing much business with the US Government...maybe it's now Biden's fault? LOL

Where was this media when the real truth about Iraq camt to light? Where were they when bush pushed the evil Patriot Act on us? Where were they to follow the paper trail on cheney's billion no-bid contract with haliburton? Where were they when apparently scumbag bush went AWOL in 1972 to dodge the Vietnam war, or he was in a drunken blackout? Where were they to expose his wife's manslaughter charge when she was driving drunk in Lubbuck Texas 1972 at seventeen? romney would be a repeat performence of this idiot so America decided on Obama. Whether you like it or not you will have to accept him for 4 years. Drones flying over Americans is wrong but if bush were still in you would say " why are these people against Americans spying on Americans"

I don't know what Jamie Foxx meant. Was is saying ONLY black people are the most talented? This would be wrong. There are talented actors of all walks of life but why don't you post more intelligent deep thought provocing subjects then this? You seem to have quite a bit of control over what is posted and atleast some of us know where you are coming from and why you post what you do. I know propaganda when I see it and media sources are a powerful mental controlling channel.

Poor, Poor Jim. Boo Hoo.
Speaking of hypocrisy, bias, and LIES....
I read the post where you claimed the soldiers at Africom participated in a coverup...
Man enough to face your words yet?
Nah, you're just a bitch who accuses our soldiers of lacking honor and integrity.
Funny how the mods let the racists post here all day long, but the guy who calls out Jim for lying about soliders get's blocked.

DAYTON -- The Dayton Police Department is lowering its testing standards for recruits.

It's a move required by the U.S. Department of Justice after it says not enough African-Americans passed the exam.

He does seem to corner the market on posting. Either he,his wife or family work for this network. none of the rest of us could post on this topix board. It's always some off the wall posting coming from a very insecure man who is still upset his romney lost by a landslide, Thank God!

Crisp County is Georgia's number 1 watermelon-growing county and the number 4 watermelon-growing county in the United States. The most prominent watermelons grown in Crisp County are seedless, red watermelons. Cordele Georgia is known as the Watermelon Capital of the World because of the quality and quantity of watermelons grown in the county. During the summer, Cordele celebrates the watermelon harvest with the annual Watermelon Days Festival.

Watermelon is one of the USA's largest cash crops. Cordele's State Farmer's Market is a major watermelon shipping point as well as a shopping destination for persons seeking fresh produce. Shoppers from across south and central Georgia come to this market for watermelons, cantaloupes, eggs, peaches, peanuts, peppers, sweet potatoes and tomatoes
