When Shaun caught up with Jamie on the set of his new music video, “Just Like Me,” the Oscar winner said Obama’s victory has instilled a sense of “responsibility” in all African-Americans.

“I don’t know how people felt but I know how I felt, as far as being an African-American male,” Foxx added. “I speak now to every African-American male that I see. Now we have a responsibility, a huge responsibility to make sure we do the right thing now and to cut out all the madness and silliness. Now we don’t have an excuse.”

We can’t say it’s the man’s fault when you are the man,” Foxx continued.

And the actor-singer also said he plans on being at Obama’s inauguration on January 20 in Washington, D.C.
