So just recently Jamie Fox on his radio talk show said some really mean and inappropriate things about Miley Cyrus. He said she had big gums, she needs a gum trasplant, one of his co-host reffered to her as "that little white bit**" On the Jay Leno show he apoligized and said that his show is a black version of Howard Stern...like that makes it better.
My question is why is this not a HUGE deal...if Billy Ray or Howard Stern himself said that Jamie Fox's daughter has a nappy head or hair and she needs a wig, or if someone reffered to her as a "little black bit**" there would be a all out call for his job.
Why are some things ok and swept under the rug for black people but not for white people???
Everyone wants to say they want equal treatment BUT do they really???

Well of course it's just as bad. America's only weakness is the problem of people getting offended too easily. What happened to stick and stones.... but words can never hurt. I am an American with Mexican decent, a minority since people want to put a label on it The best part of that is I am an American and as such I don't allow feeble, nonsense like what Jamie Foxx would say bother me. I am not impressed by Hollywood it's the worst part of America. They walk on eggshells as not to offend the whiners. Whiners are weak. So whats the difference what Foxx would say or for that fact Imus or even Michelle Obama saying she is finally proud of America. All are so called celebrities to me. I am not impressed by anything they say until the begin to say the truth.
