Jamie Foxx Accuses L.A. Cops Of Racial Profiling

| Filed under: Legal MattersJamie Foxx


Seems like Jamie Foxx isn't too happy with the police in Los Angeles.

The actor is convinced that he's a victim of racial profiling.

Fox admits that he's regularly pulled over by L.A. cops, most recently near his home in the affluent Los Angeles suburb, Westlake.

Foxx said:

"I get pulled over all the time. I live in Westlake. A black man in Westlake? That's just don't happen. I got pulled over the other day for being black and happy. 'What's all that smiling about? You're smiling back there.' I was guilty."

Hmm. What do U think?

    Move or SHUT THE HELL UP!!! Hire a white driver!!

  2. 2

    Newsflash! NO ONE is more racist to the black community than THEIR OWN RACE!!!

  3. 3

    Ugh, there is no such thing as "racial profiling"!!!!! Here's a challenge for you all, pull your car over to the side of the road and face traffic and you tell me if you can tell the race of 99.9 % of the drivers. Garanteed you wont be able to tell if someone is black or white! Also I garantee Jaimie fox has tinted windows. BUT it's all about race when someone black get's pulled over for a traffic violation! pulease!

  4. 4

    Yes I believe it, I live in a town with mostly white people, and see black people pulled over a lot

  5. 5

    whatcha talkin' about Willis? Every single person of another race can make racial jokes about every other race - except white people……………everybody hates white people…doesn't matter what we say, we're all racist against everyone………..

  6. 6

    Hey, it's their job to keep the neighborhood safe! You may not be up to anything…but your peeps usually are. Blame your brothas, not the cops.

    He's a fucking idiot…. Lets quote: That's just don't happen!

  8. 8

    Blah blah blah. Racial profiling. Tired of hearing that shit, it's old! No wonder why so many blacks are still racists…. look at the stars they look up to. I've been mistreated and really discriminated against blacks many times before. But I've never said "it's because I'm white" although it might have been and probably was. I don't use that card to get attention. I live my damn life and don't give a shit about what other people think of me.

    Plus, there is more than likely more of a reason to be pulled over than being white or black. Guarantee that. People get pulled over here ALL the time because of the cars they drive. No joke. Most of the time, they're white and we have probably more blacks here than whites!

    He's the type that he has to have someone else to blame and has to pull the race card because he's truly that insecure and all whites are proven white devils.

  9. 9

    I'm black.

    Graduated from a 4 year university. Great Job, etc. Have a perfectly clean driving record, and routinely get pulled over 2 to 4 times a year since high school.

    I have several caucasian colleagues that have been pulled over once or twice in their lives. Racial profiling is running rampant in police departments across the country!

  10. 10

    Jamie Foxx also pledged his support for a convicted multiple murderer on Death Row (since executed). Foxx spouted that the guy was being unfairly persecuted because he was black.
    Meanwhile, this guy, had murdered an entire Korean family in their business execution style. Also he and his friends had murdered a white convenience store clerk, describing later how funny it was to watch the 23 yr old be shot in the neck and gurgle blood as he died.
    This is who Jamie Foxx made it his mission to save from the death penalty.
    He has also made numerous remarks that whites are "racist".

  11. 11

    Westlake? Or Westlake Village? He'd probably be left alone in plain ole regular Westlake.

  12. 12

    I'm quite sure he is correct. After laws are passed it still takes eons for sanity to catch up with indidvuals..and those in power are the very LAST to give up their games.

  13. 13

    If he wasn't speeding or doing anything wrong he knows what he knows. But if the statistics the police follow say most of the crime is done by African Americans. . . Jamie is a victim of the culture. Nothin' you can do but try and rally and be a role model and get this cycle to end.

  14. 14

    Hmmm, what do I think? I believe him! I like Jamie a lot, and I think he's right. On a one to one basis there is still a lot of racism around. There's laws against it, and there's more opportunities, but there is also still a lot of racist people who get real personal. And cops do that. I'm glad he is talking about it in public.

  15. 15

    Re: JackTheRipper – If you are referring to who I think you are - it's Tookie Williams, co founder of the Crips……….jamie foxx is a total and complete idiot. It's a shame that young people of any race would look up to and admire him……

  16. 16

    Why would he want to live in a white neighborhood? He's full of shit anyways. He's one of the most anti-white people in Hollywood. The pot calling the kettle black?!?!?

  17. 17

    oh - just a quick note - Foxx can thank the white man that hates him so much for that freedom of speech to bitch about Westlakes PD………

  18. 18

    ahahah i love love love how a certain race deny racial profiling because they don't get that treatment..just like cops are very slow to appear when you call from a ghetto area. There aren't equal treatment in this world! My best friend dad is a cop! during April he told me most cops in the area try to meet a certain quota and pull people over many stupid reason..and for some damn reason he forgot I was black and said..most of the time we assume things with black young man.

  19. 19

    While I'm sure there are issues with all police … in this case something tells me Mr. Fox is desperate for publicity … ANY PUBLICITY.

  20. 20

    Actually, statistics show that most crime is committed by white, middle-class people - it's known as blue collar crime. That type of crime, however, doesn't rake in viewers or sell newspapers.
    Regarding racial profiling, some people just can't help themselves - as a mixed race person living in a white town you become aware of the 'looks' you get when out just going about your business from an early age.

  21. 21

    he makes a valid point, but hilariously

  22. 22

    Yeah, cuz this is the fuckin 50's and cops aren't used to seeing black guys in nice cars in nice neighborhoods. Fucking retard, it's always about race if you get pulled over, never about bad driving of course.

  23. 23

    Re: Chinwe Okorie Ŧ – You said the cops are slow to appears after calling them when in a ghetto area - let's think about this now. It's a ghetto area (as you mentioned) so maybe they are busy doing police work elsewhere within that area since it's a known fact the crime rate is higher in places like that? Young black men take up more room in the jails in this country that any other race which would be why they are targeted - they cause the most crime whether it be drug dealing, B&E, child support, stealing, illegal firearms, etc, etc.
    Just want to make note - I'm a white girl, spent quite some time in the "hood". I had my car stolen from me by 4 black girls. It was 11 o'clock at night when I called the police and they showed up at 12:15. I don't want to hear white people get the upper hand - my car could've been in a Philly chop shop by the time the police had any information other than a vehicle being stolen. I had also unknowingly received a stolen stereo system and the cops were not hearing that I didn't know it was stolen - they didn't give a shit that I'm white.

  24. 24

    whats new, honkys being racist? Gasp….its not possible.

  25. 25

    Re: April 20th – Yes,Tookie Williams. I personally wanna see all murderers FRY. But I was just trying to add some background as to why the police might not be so nice to Mr Foxx.

  26. 26

    White denial in full force. Get your heads out of you asses! Racial profiling exists and will ALWAYS exist as long as their are racist cops out there and people of color driving upscale cars in white neighborhoods. I believe Jamie 100% and don't doubt he gets pulled over all the time. I remember a joke in MIB II when Will Smith was talking about the autopilot driver in the Mercedes-Benz. He said the car came with a black dude but he kept getting pulled over.

  27. 27

    Funny how white people want to make racial joke so bad. lol I love when they say racism is dead. Just read some of the comments. SMH nothing like dumb white people.

    @Chasenip - Your statement is stupid

    @Laroccakidd - You can't tint your window in that state on the back windows. Unless he is driving in the back seat a cop can see who driving - dumbazz

    Yes black people are racially profile. As any cop. If they a black person where they don't think they should be they will follow them and run the license plate and on the flip they will not do it to white people.

    LOL yeah the gay movement is the same as the racial movement.

    That's like accusing the Sun of being hot.

  29. 29

    Re: JackTheRipper – oh, I totally agree with you. BET had a special on Tookie and I guess since he "penned" a children's book he should released from prison. The program also tried to give the impression that the people and families he killed, deserved it for one reason or another. The guy started a nationally known gang and people (primarily blacks) hold him on a pedestal. Maybe the bloods/crips should go up against the KKK - they all stand for the same fucken disgusting things, let em take each other out………

    "WAAAAAAAHHHHHHH I'm black!!! Feel sorry for me!!! WAAAAAHHHHHH!!!" Maybe he drives like an asshole. Seriously, black people today have it nowhere near as tough as black people used to. Back in the day, blacks had to have separate everything. You want to know what real racism is, talk to a black person who lived through the 50's and 60's you whiny bitch.

  32. 32

    Re: Chinwe Okorie Ŧ – Statistics don't lie. The majority of crimes are committed by young black men. It's a fact and yes, it is sad…but it's reality.

  33. 33

    Amazes me how stupid ppl r in the word… ur comments just show that u live in a fantasy world… racial profiling stil goes on… my brother is a college graduate and helps with the medical team for NFL teams makes good money and stays in a nice area… he's always pulled over… asked to get out his car… they are always illegally searching him… he doesn't have a record.. he just a black dud with dreads… so it must be a crime… ya'll know Jamie Foxx tellin the truth u have to be stupid to believe other wise… and y are white ppl so gung ho about tellin racist jokes… pathetic!!!

  34. 34

    To all the white people saying they've been discriminated against: give me a break. It's takes a mature, self-aware white person, and I know many, to admit that there IS racial profiling going on in many states around America, if not all. And just because that's true doesn't make every white person guilty. I'm thinking that some of you think that if you admit that it happens, you're admitting you're guilty, which is the only way I can wrap my head around so many white people being so adamantly SURE that racial profiling doesn't exist. It's easy for you to say when you don't have to put up with it.

  35. 35

    Re: trakstar5 – Are you fucking retarded?? I'm white and I get pulled over ALL THE TIME. And you know why??? Because I drive like an asshole!! You just don't want to take responsibility for your own actions. Everything comes back to racism. And nice icon. Dead giveaway. Nobody nowadays knows what real racism is. Talk to an 80-year-old black man and I'm sure he would tell you horror stories. It's not perfect, but it's waaaaay better to be black in America now than it used to be. So stop whining you little bitch. Can you sit in the front of the bus?? Can you use the same water fountain as whites??? Can you speak to a white woman withought getting killed??? YES! So before you start whining and being a little bitch, thing about how blacks before you really did suffer. You have no idea!

  36. 36

    Re: April 20th – Just to let you know White males make up most of the drug crimes in America, but for some reason black people make up the majority of people sent to prison for drug possession and trafficking… Wanna know why? Because Black people are convicted while white people are given probation for the same crimes. So don't think you've one up'd anyone with you're faulty statistics.

  37. 37

    Re: trakstar5 – It's time to stop playing the victim, though I can imagine how tempting it must be.
    There are racists of all colors and creeds.
    Most police forces (especially in LA) are not as free to do whatever they want anymore, no matter what you may have heard. If anything, the hands of police are tied to ridiculous degrees as liberals screech endlessly about the rights of suspects. Also, most big city police forces like LA are about half comprised of "minorities" (asian, latino, black).

    But I realize that keeping the "all cops are racist whites" myth going strong means avoiding that nasty thing called personal responsibility.

  38. 38

    I totally believe that Jamie is telling the truth. I think it's unfortunate that things like this continue to occur but if we are to get beyond racial profile I think the first step is for everyone to acknowledge that it is a fact in our society.

  39. 39

    Re: JackTheRipper – If you are against the death penalty and advocate against it, then that is your position REGARDLESS of how heinous the crime and how brutal/racist/cold-blooded the perpetrator is.

    You'll recall that some Black leaders supported a new trial for James Earl Ray, MLK's assassin.

  40. 40

    Re: Nellygrl – If you want to talk statistics, thats great. But I really doubt you wanna go down THAT road.

  41. 41

    Re: Erendira – If the police are pursuing a suspect who is black, they should be allowed to stop someone fitting the description. The same with any other race of suspect.
    If a person is acting suspicious in their car, the police should have the right to stop them. period.

    Crime is already a huge problem. Making it even harder for police to do anbything about it is pure stupidity.

  42. 42

    Re: caroaber – Thats why we have degrees of murder. I support the death penalty for all first degree murder. But especially for the heinous and heartless and repeat cases (those who kill cold bloodedly for money or serial killers).

  43. 43

    Every time someone pulls out that racial card it gets so tiring.. then people who are actual victims of racial profiling don't get believed.. i really don't believe him.. and it's time to put that card away and never use it again.. shit..

  44. 44

    Re: April 20th – Once again agreed.. shit's annoying as hell..

  45. 45

    Re: Chinwe Okorie Ŧ – Thats bs.. i've been pulled over a couple times and i am not a crazy driver and usually for something dumb.. some people in this world are racist… but to say you only get pulled over cause of your color is cowardly UNLESS you know without a doubt this person is being a racist.. -_- then you shouldn't accuse people of that..i wonder what he would have said if the cop that pulled him over was the same color.. or anyone else saying the same thing..

  46. 46

    He is such an idiot. I am so tired of all of this whining. I used to like him but this statement really irritates me. Felt the same about Kanye until he made that idiotic statement about Bush. (& believe me I am a full on Democrat.)

    What about "reverse racism?" You never seem to hear about that.

    Affirmative Action..

    It's racism that he gets pulled over? Tell me how it's NOT racism that someone who happens to be white will get rejected from college to allow someone of another race (who happens to be much less qualified) in. RIDICULOUS.

    It's a damn shame. We will never get rid of racism of any sort until we don't allow race to be a qualifying factor for ANYTHING. Lost respect for Jamie.

    End rant.

  47. 47

    Re: Chinwe Okorie Ŧ – Thank you! Well said! I'm sick of ALL the ignorant ass comments the racist people on this site make. What people lack is seeing things from another person's point of view. If they did that, then maybe they would understand some of the real shit that actually goes on and happens to other people who aren't like them in this world.

  48. 48

    Re: JackTheRipper – Did you not get the point of my comment? Statistics don't reflect what is really going on in the system. Black people filling jail cells is a RESULT of racial profiling so any statistics that come out of that are not accurate.

    I'm not advocating that every cop is racist and every black person that gets stopped or arrested is a result of racial profiling, but it is arrogant and just plain stupid to insist that it doesn't happen AT ALL.

  49. 49

    For-real-zies??? Come the F on Jamie Fox, you're better then that!!!!

  50. 50

    Re: Laroccakiddd – Obviously you don't know anyone who's worked for a police force…YES…RACIAL PROFILING IS ENCOURAGED.

  51. 51

    Re: Nellygrl – Where did I say it doesnt happen? I'm just saying it's better to err on the side of letting police do their job effectively. There are literally legions of criminal scum in this country willing to shoot dead your family and loved ones for a few bucks.
    If you are stopped by the police, and you are innocent, you have no problem. In real life there are things like lawyers and courts and the media and other things making sure cops cannot abuse their power.

    I was just at a restaurant last night, there were 2 separate tables talking to each other next to us. They were all black high school kids. The 2 girls sitting at one of the tables were talking about their formal dance they just left from and added to their conversation "We thought it was gong to be too much white people stuff, but it was cool". All of these going on while the boys sitting at the other table were calling each other the N word the whole time.
    But the police are racist if they pull over a black man for tinted windows? This is BS and it has to stop.
    Get it to your heads people, we are all equal here. Who gives a sh*t about your skin color other than you? I really don't give a damn.

  57. 57

    Re: JackTheRipper – In a perfect world we COULD leave it all up to courts for justice when it comes to cops. But it's not a perfect world.

    Have you ever heard of Amadou Diallo? A girl gets raped and describes her ascalent as black and the police just go knocking on black people's doors. Amadou answers his door and the police tell him they're looking for a rapist that he fits the description of (black, which is a pretty easy description to fall under). He goes for his wallet and is shot not once or even twice, but 41 times point blank by the officers. All four officers involved ended up getting off scott free. Sorry, but that seems a little wrong to me. And all this because he was a black.

    This was a case of racial profiling. Not only because there was no specific reason why they decided to knock on his door in particular, but because of their assumption that every black man has a gun in his back pocket. Again, I'm not saying that these cops were evil and they murdered him in cold blood, but let's be real. He was a black man and they were threatened and they overdid it and it resulted in his death. Extreme situation, but it shows that cops don't always get the punishment they deserve.

  58. @v@ says – reply to this


    Recent Crime Rate statistics by category do not support this kind of racial profiling various people claim is being done by police. Whether Foxx allegedly just got caught speeding or not this time, or whatever, I totally believe him.

    I am a white chick but I believe him! There is a ton of Racial Profiling in America. I am russian and have a bit of an accent and when I was in school I was snubbed a lot by my teachers and I blame my accent. I ended up getting straight A's but none of my teachers would ever warmup to me asthey did to other students

  61. 61

    None of you who have experienced racial profiling first hand should not be talking. All immigrants and people of color have experienced racism at one point of our lives and it sure as hell ain't right. So Shut the Fuck up, spoiled brats.

    Re: Nellygrl – And I know you dont want to believe it but there are plenty of white guys shot dead by police when they didnt have a gun too. Police make mistakes. In a nation of 300 million there are gonna be some fuck ups, some negligence, and yes, some bad cops.
    I give everybody a fair shot. I dont think I'm better than anyone because I'm white and I won't say I've ever been the "victim" of racism (or if I have been i just brushed it off). I am aware of American history, and also that too often those with money skate while those without serve much harsher sentences

  66. 66

    If you don't experience it on a daily basis, how can you comment on it?? I love people who act like racism doesn't exist. HOW DO YOU FUCKING KNOW IF YOU'RE NOT EXPERIENCING IT!? How do you know how other whites treat other races?! You don't. STFU!

    i am very aware that we still have discrimination and racial profiling happening today, but that doesn't necessarily mean that EVERY time someone screams racism it really is racism.

    sometimes people don't want to look at the real reason they are disliked, called out, pulled over, whatever. maybe it isn't because everyone is racist against you… perhaps it could be because you are acting like an asshole?

    there is a reason that the majority of people living in ghettos are black. if you asked them, they would tell you because they were discriminated against. really though, it is because when anything bad or negative happened to them they used the racism card instead of trying to better themselves and get out of that situation.

    and before all the comments about me being in the kkk or some nonsense gets started, yes i am black.

    "YES! So before you start whining and being a little bitch, thing about how blacks before you really did suffer. You have no idea!"
    Obviously you have no idea either of what you're babbling. To say someone of color knows nothing about racism because their ancestors experienced it much more severely is like saying women today don't experience sexism because women centuries ago had it worse.

    Re: PerezSux54
    "Statistics don't lie. The majority of crimes are committed by young black men. It's a fact and yes, it is sad…but it's reality."
    Statistics do not tell who commit the most crimes. Statistics lists rates of arrests, convictions, and incarcerations. How can you account for crimes that are committed but are never reported or solved? And what constitutes a crime being committed? People break the law everyday when they speed past the speed limit or download illegally.

    Re: JackTheRipper – I don't doubt it at all that there are white men shot that don't have guns. But at the same time, not nearly as often as black men.

    I'm not bringing your character into question here. I'm sure you're a great guy. I just get defensive when people insist that there aren't forms of racism in the legal system. But I see now that we agree on at least some things.

    There is Definetly such a thing as racial profiling…I am white and my aunt was unable to have children so she adopted her kids who happen to be black…my cousin is a young black male and he drives the same speed I do and he gets PULLED OVER on a weekly basis (usually for going 5 over the speed limit) …I drive 5 over the speed limit and have never been pulled over…on top of that I was the victim of a stalker at my former place of employment he oftened followed me home where I live with my family…Finally I decided to go to the local police in my area….I had said nothing to the cop about the suspect and there are all races, and religions and ethnic backgrounds where I live yet the FIRST THING the cop asked me before I could tell him anything was "Is he black?"…..To which I responded " No, Sir"…..how is that NOT racial profiling?

  84. 84

    Yes all black people are criminals and all white people are racists. What is with the constant stereotyping? Everyone always pulls the race card. Come on, aren't we past that already?

    Haha I love how the only people who are defending Jamie are blacks. Talk about racism. I am not denying that racial profiling exists, because I know that it does. But I think most of the time it's just a person who can't admit they are a terrible driver so they pull the race card.
    I am a white female living in Ecuador. I know what it is like to be the target of racism, even though I am white. I have never said "It's because I'm white" because that's just a cry for attention and sympathy and it's racist to make that kind of remark. Anyways I'm just informing those of you who think blacks are the only target, that racism exists everywhere and it's not just blacks receiving it.

  87. 87

    Re: sikisiki – So you're giving all us "blacks" a lesson on pulling the race card while simultaneously pulling your race card? Seems a little hypocritical.
    And just to let you know, there are plenty of white people who will admit that racial profiling exists. And anyone who denies it is ignorant and doesn't want to face the facts.
    And I'm mixed race and there are white people on this board that are admitting it exists so you might want to drop that whole theory.

    It all depends on where you are, people. Masters in chemistry, clean driving record (I always drive 3 mph under the speed limit), yet I still get pulled over and followed in stores. There IS such a thing as "racial" profiling. Just because it hasn't happened to you, it doesn't mean it's nonexistent.

    So because you have a college degree and have a nice car excludes you from getting pulled over?
