Hollywood African American film star Samuel L. Jackson openly admits to voting for President Barack Obama, “because he’s black,” in the 2008 presidential election.
"I voted for Barack because he was black. ‘Cuz that’s why other folks vote for other people — because they look like them,” said Mr. Jackson in the interview.
Well, there's only one thing to say about that:
This is so, so sad and it hurts so bad that people can't face the reality: black people got a black puppet. A black president would have been the ultimate achievement of the civil rights movement. But what really happened is so despicable and genuinely racist that the integrity of our culture inhibits its recognition. Essentially, the one percent put blackface on and all the black people were easily fooled. This is not good for black on black relations, but it's great for rich white people. Over the past 10 years or so I have slowly come to understand that black rage against the white establishment is totally justified and actually understated, even among the radicals. At least all the politically/socially conscious hip-hop artists can provide the black culture with this kind of insight. Oh shit, I forgot, they don't exist anymore. I wonder why...
