Richards, you'll recall, is the comedian publicly shamed for blurting the 'n' word at Aframericans in his audience during a live show. The blacks were heckling Richards, disrupting both the comic and the entire audience. Richards said his outburst was part of his routine, intended to counter the obnoxious disruption caused by boisterous blacks.
Richards suffered the consequences. He was publicly humiliated, punished with lost income, and suffered emotional distress.
Enter Jamie Foxx.
The black comedian has drawn ire from thinking people for making a lurid racist remark that transcends the indignities of a racial slur. Foxx has demanded that all white people should be killed. Not to worry, it was part of his comedy routine. And everyone's buying it.
There are differences.
Richards was provoked.
Foxx's racist rant is part of a premeditated script.
Richards addressed a handful of blacks.
Foxx addresses all white people, not a just few.
Richards admitted he make a mistake.
Foxx is arrogantly ignoring those he offended.
Here's how Newsbusters.com reported Foxx's rant:
Two weeks ago, Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx made national headlines when he called President Obama "Our lord and savior."
While hosting NBC's Saturday Night Live this weekend, Foxx joked about how in his new film "Django Unchained," "I kill all the white people in the movie. How great is that?" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
JAMIE FOXX: My name is Jamie Foxx. Give it up, give it up, New York City, Saturday Night Live. Come on, make some noise, man. New York City, New York City, Brooklyn, Staten Island, Queens, it’s crazy. I'm black, and I’m dressed all black cause it's good to be black. Black is the new white. I’m telling you, how black is this right here? Nice fly, I’m saying. You know how I know black is in right now? Cause the Nets moved to Brooklyn. How black is that? They got black jerseys, black court. I mean, how black is that? And Jay-z is the owner, a rapper. How black is that? And Jay-z only own about this much of the team. But he act like he own all of New York. How black is that?
And I got a movie coming out, "Django," check it out. Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson. “Django Unchained” I play a slave. How black is that? And in the movie I had to wear chains. How whack is that? But don't be worried about it because I get out the chains, I get free, I save my wife, and I kill all the white people in the movie. How great is that? And how black is that?
But I'm going to tell you right now, speaking of blackness, my President, President Obama is back up in the White House four more years. How black is that? And not only that, he’s so black, he was playing basketball during the Election Day. How black is that? But he was also late for his acceptance speech. Okay, all the white people, this is your turn - how black is that?
But he going to be extra black this next four years. He going to get everything black, and white people, don't get nervous about that because he is mixed. 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. How black is that? And the next time you see him dancing on Ellen, he gonna be dancing like this.
