Actor Jamie Foxx - A racist?
Jamie Foxx is breaking down racial barriers - starting at his front door.
The actor, who has been campaigning tirelessly to get reformed gang leader Stan (Tookie) Williams off Death Row, admits he once refused to let more than one white man into his house.
"When I was 15, I went to play the piano for this white guy's Christmas party" in Texas, Foxx says. But when he and a friend showed up at the client's mansion, the host stopped them, saying, "I can't have two niggers in my house at one time."
Foxx says he was forced to send his friend home, even though his pal had given him a lift to the party.
The "Ray" star was so rankled by the experience that, once he hit it big in Hollywood, he instituted a similar quota system.
Whenever two white guys came to party at his pad, Foxx tells Oprah Winfrey in December's O, he'd tell them, "You all will have to make a decision between you two."
Foxx adds that his friends "had to counsel me and say, 'Don't fall into that same trap.' "
The Oscar winner later changed his entrance policy - though, he points out, he never set a limit on white women.
Why should this not surprise us? After all, the first thing a more "sensitive", more "civilized", more "enlightened", much "smarter", more "tolerant" Leftie does is get EVEN when they get in power, isn't it?
And, gee, I wonder why he "never set a limit on white women"?
