As our own Alexandra Myers reports:
“I voted for Barack because he was black,” actor Samuel L. Jackson told Ebony Magazine.
The Daily Mail reported that he said that the reason why people vote for other people is because they look like them. “That’s American politics, pure and simple,” Jackson said. “[Obama’s] message didn’t mean s*** to me.”
There you go, libs. Consider that your permission slip to admit that you voted for Obama because he’s black. Just imagine how good it’ll feel to stop pretending.
Of course, if Jackson stopped and thought about what he’s saying, he’d realize how dumb it is. If it were true, if people who have skin tones similar to Obama’s were the only ones who voted for him, he would’ve lost big. That’s just, y’know, math. Then again, I firmly believe that Jackson will be so awesome as Nick Fury in The Avengers that it will erase all cultural memory of Mace Windu, so there’s that.
If you think it’s racist to disagree with Obama about pretty much anything, but it’s not racist to vote for him based only on his skin color, you might be a liberal.
