In an interview with Ebony Magazine, Samuel L. Jackson admitted that he was very adamant about the getting a black man into the White House in 2008.
“I voted for Barack because he was black,” Jackson revealed. “‘Cuz that’s why other folks vote for other people — because they look like them.”
That’s right, he said it.
“That’s American politics, pure and simple,” Jackson added. “[Obama’s] message didn’t mean sh*t 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 sh*t; they lie. ’Cuz they want to get elected.”
But he started to get a little looser with it.
“When it comes down to it, they wouldn’t have elected a n*gga. Because, what’s a n*gga? A n*gga is scary. Obama ain’t scary at all. N*ggas don’t have beers at the White House. N*ggas don’t let some white dude, while you in the middle of a speech, call [him] a liar. A n*gga would have stopped the meeting right there and said, ‘Who the f*ck said that?’ I hope Obama gets scary in the next four years, ’cuz he ain’t gotta worry about getting re-elected.”
Dayuuum Sam, git funky wit-it, why don’t cha?
