    Jamie Foxx (an actor who I like a lot, I think he is highly talented) did a tribute to Michael Jackson, but in the middle of the tribute he stated, "Michael was ours (Black People) we loved him...we just lent him to you (white people)!"

    Was this racist? I think it was! The double standard runs deep! Just imagine a white guy saying that during a meeting for the WET (White Entertainment Television). "You know that Robert D'Niro was ours, we loved him...we just lent him to the black people!" People would be up in arms!

    No, it wasn't racist and no it isn't comparable to the scenario you just mentioned since Deniro in no way has any connection with black people. Its funny how white people like calling black people racist if only because white people can't get away with doing the same thing, as if that makes/not makes something racist.

    Actually, yeah, I think that's pretty much the definition of it.

    It's not racist, it's separatist.

    That was an asshole comment by Jamie Foxx, he's an asshole. If they want to claim Michael Jackson, good for them, I certainly wouldn't want to claim him.

    I never liked Jamie Fox that much, I did like Redd Fox, once upon a time. You know, I remember once upon a time, Micheal Jackson used to be black, back in the day.

    That was before he decided he wanted to be Diana Ross. Along with his sister, LaToya.

    Meanwhile, Diana Ross was trying to look like Vivien Leigh.
