So I watched a little of the booty shaking network's award show last night (Killing time before Nucky) and I will be damned if I didn't miss Jamie Foxx making some news.
"Actor and musician Jamie Foxx called President Barack Obama ‘our lord and savior’ during his appearance on the Soul Train Awards 2012 on Sunday in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“It’s like church over here. It’s like church in here. First of all, give an honor to God and our lord and savior Barack Obama. Barack Obama,” Foxx joked. The Oscar award-winning Foxx has been a longtime supporter of President Obama’s and publicly advocated for his re-election during the 2012 campaign season." [Clip & Story]]
Boy have you done lost your mind??!! Don't you know that there is but one God and his name is Reagan??!!
Wingnuts and conservatives did not think that this was funny, and some of them are demanding an apology.
"Jamie Foxx has a movie coming out in December. I suggest that unless he apologizes for this, that many people boycott this movie. There is a line between comedy and stupidity and last night Jamie crossed the line. He states that he was brought up in the church so his insurance policy will be that he was being funny but I didn’t know that this falls in line with comedy. This was in bad taste and he must not have any fear in God to do something like this."
BTW, I know that some of you Negroes didn't think what Jamie Foxx said was funny, either. Because honestly, you really believe what he said is true. Stop laughing. You know it's true.
Finally, this has been a bad week for Wal-Mart.
First, their workers killed a shoplifter during Black Friday. (Why on earth would a $9 an hour employee get into an altercation with someone who took an item from his employer who is worth billions? "if you shop at Wal-Mart ...you are better off dead anyways....." OK, save the Wal Mart jokes. This is not funny; a man lost his life.
Then there is the sad story of the 117 poor people who lost their lives in a Bangladesh sweat shop while making clothes for Wal- Mart shoppers.
Throw in a well publicized campaign by the unions to draw attention to Wal-Mart's working conditions and we have a perfect storm of negative publicity.
Not that it will matter to their bottom line. Sadly, folks will continue to shop at Wal-Mart, and Main Street America will continue to die.
