Floyd Mooney is a talented, up-and-coming young black comedian who, while furthering his career, must find a way to maintain his credibility in the stand-up world as he crosses over into the world of becoming “white famous.”
Based on the personal experiences of Jamie Foxx.
Jamie Foxx might not be a bigot but for making the show but The title gave away enough of a premise to turn a lot of people off. If it was about "Getting to the Next Level" or "Breaking Out" or "What Needs to Be Done" to make it (3 non race based titles) then call it that. A lot of comedians around the world are not as famous as others. Every city with a club has a comedian who is really only known at that club, or in that neighborhood. By using race in the title one could tell it was going to be about race and blame, not an unknown trying to make it. Even if one says the show wasn't, the title proved it was. Of course you lose viewers when you over premise the show in the title.
Why use race in the title if it isn't about race?
BTW, your people enslaved the planet for hundreds of years.
How is Jamie Foxx a bigot for having a show called White famous? Oh, I get it you're one of those people that say," I'm not a racist, I have a black friend."
