Passion = Truth? How Jeffrey James Francis Ircink Sees The World? I love when people are passionate about something. That surging of emotion is the one honest measure of what truth is. It's a truthful display of how a person really feels about something or someone at that particular moment. That passion IS truth.

I dislike Jamie Foxx.

Jamie Foxx hosted SNL this past weekend. I've always disliked Jamie Foxx. His monologue had a "how black is that?" theme. I've always disliked Jamie Foxx. He promoted his movie, "Django". I've always disliked Jamie Foxx. This is what he said about the film:

“I got a new movie coming out, Django, check it out…Django Unchained, I play a slave. How black is that? In the movie, I have to wear chains. How whack is that? But don’t be worried about it, because I get out [of] the chains, I save my wife, and I kill all the white people in the movie. How great is that? And how black is that?

I've always disliked Jamie Foxx.

If I were promoting a play I had written and said, "All the black people in the play - they all get murdered by a white guy. How white is that?", do you think I'd get the laughs Jamie Foxx got? Huh. Can he say that...because he's black? Is he being ironic? Is he helping to perpetuate black stereotypes? Shouldn't he do more to extinguish those black stereotypes, considering his notoriety? Am I missing something here? Am I overreacting. Huh. How fucked up is Jamie Foxx?

I've always disliked Jamie Foxx. That's MY running theme. I don't think he's funny. I won't see this film. Now I dislike him even more. Watch the clip here.
