Samuel L. Jackson

I Voted for Obama

BECAUSE HE'S BLACK

2/11/2012 6:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Barack Obamas politics meant nothing to Samuel L. Jackson
Barack Obama's politics meant nothing to Samuel L. Jackson because the "Pulp Fiction" star only voted for the president for one reason and one reason only ... because he's black. 

In an interview with Ebony magazine, Jackson explained, "I voted for Barack because he was black. 'Cuz that's why other folks vote for other people — because they look like them ... That's American politics, pure and simple. [Obama's] message didn't mean [bleep] to me."

Jackson then went on to drop the N-word several times when discussing Obama, telling the mag, "When it comes down to it, they wouldn't have elected a [bleep]. Because, what's a [bleep]? A [bleep] is scary. Obama ain't scary at all. [Bleeps] don't have beers at the White House. [Bleeps] don't let some white dude, while you in the middle of a speech, call [him] a liar. A [bleep] would have stopped the meeting right there and said, ‘Who the [bleep] said that?' I hope Obama gets scary in the next four years, 'cuz he ain't gotta worry about getting re-elected."

Smacks of ... Obama needs to Black it up.

And so starts the reason america is in the state it is. Black people don't know how to handle money, they have to flaunt and buy ridiculously expensive things to show their status. To contradict that statement, he's not black he's Hawaiian. He's not African-American because he wasn't born in Africa, and if he's holding dual citizenship that's a security issue and he should have a clearance. Personally you need to put every politician in the Nevada desert somewhere and nuke them all and start over.

He's sounds mad because Obama didn't act like he thought he would act. He had to remain professional otherwise people would be like "this is why we can't have blacks in office." I admit Obama is just too nice, but i kinda understand why. If he yells back he loses and if he does nothing he loses. Don't act like people didn't vote for mccain just because they didn't want to see black person as President.

A [bleep] is scary.


No a (bleep] isn't scary, a (bleep] is typically a mentally ill person that normal people just don't wanna be around. Most (bleeps] can't fight, thats why they always hang out in groups of (bleeps] and never fight anyone one on one.

[Bleeps] are afraid of Italians. Maybe the guy who called him a liar in the middle of a speech was Italian?

What a piece of **** this guy is. So you voted some douche into office because he's black? Were you thinking about the country at all and thinking about how Obama WAS not and IS not qualified to be a president? You should have to take iq tests to vote. ****ing morons! Now look at the state of our country! We are going down in flames.

So never mind the fact President Obama's mother was a white and from Kansas. In Samuel L Jackson's world someone is defined and labelled by the colour of their skin, regardless of their actual background. He's the kind of moron that would offer soul food to a *****ian on the grounds that's what black people like. You know what President Obama is? He's a person, just like everyone else, who just happens to be of mixed race. I very much doubt he uses the N-word.
