    Jamie Foxx, one of the most pro-black actors in Hollywood is in trouble with the new kids on the block (not the group )...

    Source: http://time.com/3763111/jamie-foxx-transphobic-bruce-jenner/

    Jamie Foxx is under fire for telling jokes during his opening monologue at the iHeartRadio Music Awards Sunday night about Bruce Jenner’s reported — but unconfirmed — transition to living as a woman.

    “We got Bruce Jenner, who will be here doing some musical performances,” the host said. “He’s doing a his-and-her duet all by himself.”

    Foxx added: “Look, I’m just busting your ***** while I still can.

    It's offensive because he's implying that transgender people change genders

    these days people LOVE to publicly destroy others in the name of Social Justice .. which also conveniently draws attention to how righteous one is of course...

      For some reason this story reminds me of this verse: "They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out, so that it would be shown that they all are not of us."

        That just proves that Perez Hilton is a racist. How dare he criticize an Oscar winning black man.

          Now if the joke was directed towards a Catholic and was about him being a boy-hungry pedophile, or towards a Republican and was about him being a hateful, racist bigot who likes to kill poor people, none of these "boo! that's offensive! shame on you!" folks would bat an eye.

            Nobody is born Catholic or Republican.

                I don't understand the misuse of homphobic and transphobic.
                He made a joke, how is he afraid of them?

                    Making fun of someone for the way they were born is different from making fun of someone for the choices they've made. CMD's point was that there is hypocrisy when there is not. It's just sour grapes.

                      So there'd be no outrage if the target was Muslim and Jamie Foxx was making offensive jokes about Islam?

                      How about if the target was Native American and he was making offensive jokes about how stupid his tribe's beliefs and rituals are?

                      Or maybe some offensive jokes aimed at an African tribesman that are all about how stupid and ugly looking his religious tattoos and/or piercings are?

                      Yeah, I'm sure that would all go over just fine with the liberal outrage brigade.

                        Because they are made-up words that have no anchor in reality, thus they can be used as bludgeons without regard for grammatical accuracy.

                          It's not news that someone from one oppressed demographic isn't necessarily going to be caring about people in another oppressed demographic.

                          Hopefully, Foxx will learn, apologize, and move on without sweating it too much. Everyone makes mistakes.

                            You can't be from an oppressed demographic if your demographic is aligned with the political and cultural hegemony of your time (liberalism). You know, like you can't be racist against white people in progressive mythology because white people are the majority.

                              If it was clear somehow that those jokes were totally unrelated to race, and we are speaking generally, I think it would. It would be a more delicate issue because those latter two cultural practices are more closely tied to racial identity due to historical context.
