'I voted for Obama because he's black': Extraordinary outburst from Samuel L. Jackson

Actor Samuel L. Jackson has admitted that he became a supporter of Barack Obama in 2008 because of his race.

In an interview for Ebony magazine's March issue, the Oscar-nominated screen legend says his decision to vote for Mr Obama was nothing to do with his political beliefs.

'I voted for Barack because he was black. 'Cuz that’s why other folks vote for other people — because they look like them,' Mr Jackson told the magazine, according to the New York Post.

'That’s American politics, pure and simple,' he said. [Obama’s] message didn’t mean **** to me. In the end, he’s a politician. I just hoped he would do some of what he said he was gonna do.
'I know politicians say ****; they lie. 'Cuz they want to get elected.'

While discussing Mr Obama's chances of re-election, Mr Jackson launched into a profanity-laden rant, repeatedly using the N-word.
The actor has defended his use of the charged racial epithet by saying that it was used at home while he was growing up.

'When it comes down to it, they wouldn’t have elected a n*****,' he said. 'Because what’s a n*****? A n***** is scary.

'Obama ain’t scary at all. N****** don’t have beers at the White House. N****** don’t let some white dude, while you in the middle of a speech, call [him] a liar. A n***** would have stopped the meeting right there and said, "Who the **** said that?"

'I hope Obama gets scary in the next four years,' Mr Jackson added, 'cuz he ain’t gotta worry about getting re-elected.'


In a separate interview with Newsweek published in January, the actor said he has mixed feelings about the President's performance so far.

'Some days I agree with Dr. [Cornel] West and what he says about the President not dealing enough with the plight of the poor,' Mr Jackson said in the Newsweek interview.

'Then I think about how they won’t give him credit for anything... The President got about a week of moderate applause for capturing the most-wanted man in the world,' he said in reference to Osama bin Laden.
'You ask me, he should have put that mother****** on ice and defrosted his ass November 1.'

In President Obama's first campaign for presidency in 2008, Mr Jackson was one of many celebrities who rallied behind him, and even skipped an Oscar award ceremony specifically to campaign for the candidate.
I understand that more than the idiots that believed Obamas hope and change campaign lies.

Slow news day? It's the only reason he got elected in the 1st place.
Obama got elected because Bush was so bad and idiots believed the hope and change hype. Even if he wasn't black he still would have got 90% of the black vote because hes a democrat. Being black only added on 6% more of the black vote.

And he got guilty white people to vote for him.

Plenty of idiots wanted to be in on that 1st black president thing.

The pubs made it even easier by not putting up strong candidates.

Race was a huge factor in his election.

Point taken.

Obama got elected because Bush was so bad
Or more accurately, the public had it bashed into their mush brains for 8 years that Bush was bad. The average person who holds that belief couldn't give you a single reason why he was bad.

Of course if I gave that same reason for not voting for Obama, I would be a racist.

The end of privacy rights and a trillion dollar war based on lies isn't bad?
Of course not. Neither were the bailouts and the deficit. Bush was a genius who knew what was best for America.
