Jamie Foxx on SNL: "How Black is That?"
Actor, singer, comedia, and he plays the piano, AND he is hood-approved. Foxx is like a Black Renaissance Man. Homie is part-time coon, most times an actor, part-time comedian, moonlighting as a singer (and producer now from what I understand), but also informed and knowledgeable enough to drop jewels on his radio show while also being ratchet as all hell. Navigating through mass media outlets, the recording and movie industries is tough enough for any person but simply being a talented Black man in any single predominantly non-Black organization/entity provides a litany of challenges that are unique to the Black man. Being able to navigate as much as he does and remain true to himself is what I find most impressive about Jamie Foxx.
