Voting for someone just because of the color of their skin is the same as not voting someone because of their skin color; unquestionably racist. If a famous actor has said they voted for McCain because he was the white candidate there would he a firestorm of controversy. I have a feeling Jackson is going to more or less get a pass on this.
"Barack Obama's politics meant nothing to Samuel L. Jackson because the "Pulp Fiction" star only voted for the president for one reason and one reason only ... because he's black.
In an interview with Ebony magazine, Jackson explained, "I voted for Barack because he was black. '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 [bleep] to me."
Jackson then went on to drop the N-word several times when discussing Obama"
