Samuel L. Jackson drops the act: admits he only voted for Obama because of race

Hey, Jackson, is it Samuel L. or Jesse? Actually, it's more likely that the actor was channeling Jeremiah Wright.

In a racial-epithet-laced interview with Ebony magazine, the Pulp Fiction star proved that his politics is a fiction and his head is filled with, well, you fill in the blank. Jackson admitted that he only voted for Barack Obama because of the president's skin color. Said the actor, "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 **** to me."

Well, Jackson certainly isn't alone in his ignoring of Obama's message. As for people voting for those who look like them, Sammy, project much? In 2008, 43 percent of whites overall cast ballots for Obama, which is only 4 points below Jimmy Carter's share in 1976; moreover, 54 percent of young whites voted for Mr. Hope and Change, a record for a Democratic candidate for the last three decades. These facts prove that whites can be colorblind and fail to see red just like anyone else.

In contrast, 96 percent of blacks supported Obama in 2008. Although, few are as honest as Jackson, who clearly is proud that he never lets politics get in the way of his bigotry. But the actor was just getting warmed up. Using that word white people are never, ever supposed to write even for illustrative purposes, Jackson then told Ebony:
    When it comes down to it, they wouldn't have elected a ******. Because, what's a ******? A ****** is scary. Obama ain't scary at all. ******* don't have beers at the White House. ****** don't let some white dude, while you in the middle of a speech, call [him] a liar. A ****** would have stopped the meeting right there and said, "Who the **** said that?" I hope Obama gets scary in the next four years, 'cuz he ain't gotta worry about getting re-elected.
Hey, classy guy. I suppose Jackson would prefer a president such as the character in Idiocracy (warning: profanity). Although, to be frank, a man who can't spell communism is far less threatening than one who worships it.

Speaking of "idiocracy," the real tragedy here is that America is so degraded that we actually elevate unsophisticated, ignorant buffoons such as Jackson to positions of prominence. So, no, Sammy, not all Americans vote only for those who look like them — not all are bigoted. As your success proves, however, not all are exceedingly smart, either.
