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.

He told it like it is without worrying about being PC. Sam is rich and set for life so he doesn't need you to go to his movies. He's in a position of not having to worry about your opinions and that is good place to be. Your objections don't mean a thing to him. I like what he said becaus a lot of US feel that same way. Up until Obama got elected, the white majority elected white presidents because they were white. I wish more Blacks would say how they really feel... Afterall we hear how white people feel everyday. We need more Black voices speaking out like this...

that was one scary article. Is Jackson that low on the consciousness pole? wow, I am still in shock, MLK seems to have no effect on so many, he was almost in vain. We now stand at the precipice of a soft dictatorship, while the 1% er Jackson makes a fool out of himself, and the country that made him famous. And Hwood wonders why middle america does not give a rats ass about "stars" anymnore

Its time for people to realize its not just white poeple who can be racist! Anyone can be a racist! This man is a full blown racist and he will get a pass b/c he is black that is unacceptable!

The racism I'm seeing in these comments are shocking. Sammuel L Jackson is an idiot for the things he said. It's sad that after all these years racism still exists. But should the entire Black race and Obama be blamed for his doltish ways. No! As for Obama getting re-elected "Change" does take time just as much time as it took for America to get in the situation we're in now. In the almost 4years Obama has been in office, he has made some improvements, so for everyone who is saying he brought the country down more, please check your facts. (Btw I'm black) And I do agree,racism goes both ways not just whites against blacks, or blacks against whites. Using racial slurs to talk about someone else's racism just makes you both look extremely unintelligent.

Samuel should stick to making movies and leave his political opinions to himself because he comes across completely unlikeable, racist and ignorant.

Voting for a person because their black is just as rasist as not voting for them because their black. Look for wisdom, and a track record. Not looks, or smooth talk. Talk is cheap. Iknow alot of white people who voted for The President.

Wow. Blatant, unapologetic, racism. Good for you Mr. Jackson. Get it out of your system. F*ck the white man and white-acting blacks. What have they ever done for you Mr. Jackson? Nuthin', that's what. You got where you are solely because of your talent and charisma. White people never hired you, white people never wrote scripts for you, white people never worked on your movies, white people never buy movie tickets, so f*ck them, f*ck them all.

wow, can we get any more offensive S. Jackson?

Do you think the R's would be any easier on Obama if he was white (Clinton, hello?)? Totally absurd, Obama's skin color means nothing to the criticism from other politicians.


Bottom line Obama hasn't united the country and all he's done is help his union friends and his banker buddies. The rest of America has gotten a big F U from him which is why he will be out of office in 2012
