Well, now we know why Samuel Jackson Voted for Obama!


Samuel Jackson gave an interview with "Ebony" magazine explaining why he voted for Obama and what he expects in his next term.

Funny... I thought Obama was a halfbeed that knew nothing of "The Black Experience". What did I miss? Jesse Jackson commented on this as well as Al Sharpton.

Considering our history I can totally understand why Blacks would jump at the first chance ever to elect a black President.
Sad thing is that that community is being hit the hardest by his policies.

So Sam is a racist, big deal. Or at least it would be if he was white.

It also could be said actors these days can say most anything and make more money/fame than to speak the truth. Micheal Jackson was a master at knowing this tactic. Some of the most popular folks in Hollywood are the very people we loath in public.
I could care less what Samuel Jacksons says. We will likely learn in yrs to come he has a drug problem. Man thats some credible voice or reason .

The most interesting part of this is that those who have, and continue, to be shrill in their accusations about racism being a large problem with Obama were and are actually correct.

Racism actuall IS a major factor when considering Obame for election in 2008, and apparently continues to be a factor.
The thing is, it's now apparent who the racists are. And it's not the whites who voted for Obame in 2008 because whites have officially proved that they are NOT racist by virtue of Obama BEING president right now.
For 2012, it's now time for those same whites who have proved that they aren't racist to toss Obama out in order to prove that they aren't stupid.

Since admitted racists like Samuel L. Jackson are going to vote for Obama again in 2012, they not only continue to show their racist motives, but they are also going prove something else in 2012, and that is that they are racist AND, let's just say, "not incredibly intelligent".

Actors/singers/musicians = clowns/jesters. Only around long enough to amuse me, then cast them aside while I take care of business. I really couldn't care less what they think about politics, or anything else.

I can certainly understand why many black Americans who don't actively follow politics would have jumped at the chance to vote for the first black man to have a serious chance of winning the presidency. I saw that as no different than the Irish catholics getting excited about JFK when he ran.

But many of Jackson's statements there are downright depressing. For a society and culture in which the vast majority simply see race the way Dr. King did, those kinds of slurs don't sound any less offensive coming from Samuel L Jackson than they would if someone like Ron Paul.

I beg to differ; racists are a pretty small minority.

I'm not sure if I'd call it racism, but rather blind partisanship. When I hear how some of those individuals spout rhetoric off as if it were handed down to them on stone tablets, it makes me think that if Jesus Christ himself were to suddenly appear behind Obama, pat him on the back and tell him he's doing a good job, the next day those blind partisans would renounce Jesus and swear allegiance to the Devil.
