Re: African Americans For Obama -- Is This Racist?
Does this really surprise anyone?
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 thatís why other folks vote for other people ó because they look like them,' Mr Jackson told the magazine, according to the New York Post.
'Thatís American politics, pure and simple,' he said. [Obamaís] message didnít mean **** to me. In the end, heís 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.'
Hear the word of the Lord, O nations, and declare it on the islands from afar, and say, "He Who scattered Israel will gather them together and watch them as a shepherd his flock."
