Many people might agree with his assesment of Carter, but many more despise the double standard. Imagine if Troy Aikman (or plug in any white comedian here) stated "I love Chad , he's my boy and all and he's white, but I got to go with Carter. Chad's had his shot but it's about winning, race has got nothing to do with it."
Thank God, when the players suit up and get on the grid iron the only color that matters are those of your teammates uniform. Race is never a factor when the live bullets are flying.
Don't get me wrong I like Jamie Foxx think he is a funny guy and a good entertainer but reverse the situation of a white actor saying that and I have no doubts it would turn into a fire storm with every activist hollering as loud as can be. Is that fair or unfair? well I found out a long time ago life is not fair so you deal with it and move on.
