Jamie Foxx used his opening monologue on last night’s edition of “Saturday Night Live” to assure us that “black is in.”
“Black is in,” the Oscar winner said, offering as proof that the NBA’s Nets moved to Brooklyn. “How black is that?” he asked.
He went on to talk about his upcoming role in Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained.”
“I play a slave. How black is that?” He asked. “I have to wear chains. How whack is that?”
But not to worry, he said.
“I get free. I save my wife and I kill all the white people in the movie,” Foxx said. “How great is that?”
Foxx then riffed that Obama’s first term reflected the president’s white side, and in the next four years we’ll see a blacker, cooler president named “Barack Dikembe Mutombo Tupac Mandela Hussein Obama X.”
