Samuel L Jackson: I voted for Obama because he's black

During a bizarrely heated 'N-word' rant in this month's Ebony Magazine, legendary actor Samuel L Jackson revealed why he voted for US president Barack Obama.

"I voted for Barack because he was black," the Snakes on a Plane star told the African-American publication. "Cuz that’s why other folks vote for other people — because they look like them.

“That’s American politics, pure and simple. [Obama’s] message didn’t mean **** to me."

Jackson wasn't done yet, however, and expressed his disappointment in the president's performance. The actor had previously campaigned for Obama four years ago while the politician was a Chicago senator.

"I just hoped he would do some of what he said he was gonna do," Jackson said. "I know politicians say ****; they lie. ’Cuz they want to get elected.”

When speaking of Obama's hopes for re-relection, Jackson launched into a profanity-laden rant over the mixed-race president, repeatedly using the N-word on numerous occasions.

"When it comes down to it, they wouldn’t have elected a n*****,' said Jackson. "Because what’s a n*****? A n***** is scary. Obama ain’t scary at all. N****** don’t have beers at the White House. N****** don’t let some white dude, while you in the middle of a speech; call [him] a liar.

"A n***** would have stopped the meeting right there and said, "Who the **** said that? I hope Obama gets scary in the next four years,' Mr Jackson added, 'cuz he ain’t gotta worry about getting re-elected."
