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's just as white as black, no wonder your country is so screwed up all you see is color and not the reasons for voting for someone who would bring jobs and recovery to your country.

Voting for someone because he is black is just as racist as voting for someone because he isn't.

This is really sad. Voting is a privildge, it's what sets this country apart from all others and to see it wasted by an actor who voted based on skin color... While I might think Mickey Mouse could do better at the moment in the White House, I would like to think as the election cycle is warming up, the one who is most qualified: in economics, leadership, international diplomacy, and has the wisdom to guide us out of the financial mess we're in and have the cajones to stand up (not apologize) for this country would be chosen. To ignore that and vote on skin color is insulting and very disappointing.

Obama's mother was white and he was raised mostly by his very W.A.S.P-y grandparents. Saw his BLACK deadbeat dad once in his life, smh. I know that hurts to read, Sambo.

No sh.t sherlock ?? Of course he voted for him because he's black. Obama received 92 + % of the Black vote. So 9.2 out of 10 black people voted Obama.

What's that mean... ? McCain did not even get a whole black vote, statistically speaking. He received 0.8 % of a vote.

Whether you want to her this or not..
Obama will get 4 MORE years..

mean while the best candidate for the job is being looked over because he's "too old" try finding any dirt on this guy and you will find nothing. I'm so ashamed of my fellow citizen voting on shallow reasons instead of doing the homework, Obama never should of been elected, it's like hiring a newspaper delivery boy to do the worlds hardest job..and you all wonder why. Then again no one has a say on who get's hired anyway cause the powers that be have already chosen, wait what's that google?, the maine caucus is done?, wait it can't be...for the record this was posted yesterday so google has time traveling powers

That's not American politics. That's everything that is WRONG with American politics. Forget race. Stupid people vote because they buy in to any rhetoric a candidate spews. These people are too stupid to do their own due diligence. Welcome to the club Samuel L. Jackson.

Lets Hope the Mayans Are Right    

Sounds like Samuel L. Jackson is too stupid to even be allowed to vote. Anyone that votes for a person only because of the color of their skin is an idiot.

Everybody is racist. It's usually white women that SWEAR they're not racist. They come across as liars instead of admitting everybody is racist like me and you. Racism is kind of based on "stereotypes".
