Actor Jamie Foxx is again facing a backlash
for making a controversial, racially charged remark, this time for making a statement about black superiority during an NAACP awards ceremony.
Foxx declared that black people are the 'most talented people in the world' at the 44th annual NAACP Image Awards, drawing the ire of conservative critics who took offense to what they considered a racist remark.
As he accepted the Entertainer of the Year Award during the Feb. 1 ceremony, he praised other luminaries such as Harry Belafonte and Sidney Poitier, saying that he was humbled by the amazing people he shared the stage with.
'Black people are the most talented people in the world. I, it’s, I can’t explain it,' Foxx said. 'You can’t sit in this room and not watch Gladys Knight sing and go like, “Golly, what in the world?”'
