Racist remarks? Samuel L. Jackson?

Sometimes the worse kind of racism comes from people who should know better...

Samuel L. Jackson only voted for President Barack Obama because of the color of his skin, the Hollywood actor revealed in a profanity-laced interview in the March issue of Ebony magazine.

“I voted for Barack because he was black. ’Cuz that’s why other folks vote for other people — because they look like them,” Jackson said. “That’s American politics, pure and simple. [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.

According to the New York Post, the “Pulp Fiction” legend repeatedly dropped the N-word during his cover story interview.

Jackson went on, ...(defending) his repeated use of the racial epithet, Jackson said it “became a part of my vocabulary when I was born.”

“Because it was used on me in my house, often . . . I know the word [bleep] as an admonishment, an endearment, a criticism and an invective. So I use it; I don’t run from it. I don’t have an issue with it or who says it. I always put it in the context of how it was used on me,” he said.
Unfortunately until he stops using the N-word he can not expect anyone to stop using the N-word.

So we discover that being qualified for a job doesn't matter, it is simply the color of the skin. In this month Samuel L. Jackson has repudiated Dr Martin Luther King and his I have a dream speech. Pity.
