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.

What makes Jackson think white people are scared of blacks? Is that the reason blacks travel in gangs? Ok, I'm calling you a liar and a stupid (Bleep). Now, where are you?...

I will NEVER watch another movie with him in it. Problem is most blacks think like this, he was just dumb enough to say it out loud. No wonder his daughter turned to pornography/prostitution.

He is honest... many voted for bho because of that.. but the problem he is not black... he is part black and a mentally ill liberal demoncrat that has almost destroyed America...

I guess when the good Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King said he "dreamed of a day when a man was judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin" has been lost on Sam. Obama got elected with 98% of the black vote. And about half of all whites voted for him. It just goes to show where the real racism in America is.

Does this mean Mr. Jackson will NOT be voting again for this socialist in the White House Black man? I hope so; I hope he votes for the republican. At least they aren't socialists.

As I have said from the start, it's WHITE QUILT that got him the election. Just how many of these elite whites great grandparents were slave owners. And many told me they just wanted to be a part of history, well, you just can't fix ignorance and the youth will be the ones to pay for their stupidity. If you didn't vote for O, you were racist, if you voted for him because he was 1st black, you'r still a racist. Whites cannot win on this one, and you've given up much for this man!Congratulations you morons!

That is the different between Morgan Freeman and Samuel L. Jackson. One is respectful and well educated, the other... exactly what he labels others. You can take a person out of the getto and soaked him in fame and money, but you can't take the getto out of a person doesn't matter how much he makes. People like such contributes to the fail of the society.

Have you lost your f&$@ing mind? Speaking of "animals," Black people aren't in the practice of hunting down other human beings, hanging them, cutting off their genitals & then inviting their backwoods, in-bred family & friends to have a potluck dinner while they watch him burn. Oh, and as far as "fake hair" goes, Farrah Fawcett was the first person to popularize hair extensions. Sorry to burst your bubble, but that was a weave, dear! And what in the world do Coach bags have to do with the presidency? Moron! Believe me, SLJ doesn't want you on his side!
