Leave it to Samuel L. Jackson to keep it real. In an interview with Ebony Magazine, the actor has no shame in his game that he voted for President Obama because of his race:
“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.”
Jackson then goes on to say:
“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. I know politicians say sh*t; they lie. ’Cuz they want to get elected.”
