Jamie Foxx has added another chapter to the on going N word debate

Last Sunday, Foxx made his position loud and clear in Atlantic city : white people should not use the word under any circumstances, according to a New York Daily News report.

However, Foxx did defend the use of the word amongst Blacks.

"I'm an Oscar winner, but I'm a ni**a, too.

He continued on, citing the now infamous Michael Richards blow up in Southern California last year.

"He was just calling us ni**er like it was the '50s! Ni**er, ni**er, with a 'e-r.' Then they said we can't use the word ni**a anymore. That's my sh*t. I need it ... I need the word to describe certain things, because at a certain level of excitement, I need to tell you how the sh*t was, and there ain't no other word that helps me say that better than that word. White people, you can't use it. ... I would have booked his ass."

During the comedy set, Foxx also sounded off on various figures in Hollywood .

Angelina Jolie
: "You famous when you can just go over to another country and pick up some kids like you're shopping for vegetables. I wish she was adopting when I was coming up. I would have breast-fed till I was 37."

: "They say I [sleep with] everybody. So, I'm layin' in bed with Oprah. I lean over to Gayle and say, 'Don't believe this sh*t. It's just between us three!' "

"O.J. be everywhere, like he still in style, like he got a hot record album. He has no remorse and he crazy. ... He arrogant. What is he doing? Every black person is saying, 'You already got away; don't dance in the end zone!' "
