Foxx made the remarks during his acceptance speech for “Entertainer Of The Year.” Shortly after the show, conservative news sites took the actor to task. “Can you imagine the heat a white actor would get if he said at a nationally televised awards ceremony, ‘White people are the most talented people in the world?’” wrote Noel Sheppard, penning a reaction piece for NewsBusters, a site that dedicates itself to exposing liberal media bias. “Probably be the end of his or her career.”
