Samuel L. Jackson, Obama and the N- Word, ESPN, Lin and The C-Word
Either this [bleep] is out of control, or he makes so much sense it’s mind boggling?
Samual L. MuthaF*ckin Jackson only voted for President Barack Obama because of the color of his skin, the Hollywood actor revealed in an N-word filled, profanity-laced interview in the March issue of Ebony magazine. Defending his repeated use of the racial epithet, Jackson said it “became a part of my vocabulary when I was born.” “Because it was used on me in my house, often…I know the word [bleep] as an admonishment, an endearment, a criticism and an invective. So I use it; I don’t run from it. I don’t have an issue with it or who says it. I always put it in the context of how it was used on me,” he said.
So it’s ok to support a man and elect him into the Oval Office, simply because he’s black? Even better, it’s NOT ok and ’racial’ for people to support Jeremy Lin, #17 of the NY Knicks, just because he’s Asian? What the ching my chong??? Also, now ESPN thinks it’s ok to jump on the Floyd Mayweather/Shaq bandwagon and join the ‘It’s OK to be racist to Asians but not to us’ Party Bus?
ESPN, what do you have to say for yourself?
Last night, ESPN.com’s mobile web site posted an offensive headline referencing Jeremy Lin at 2:30 am ET. The headline was removed at 3:05 am ET. We are conducting a complete review of our cross-platform editorial procedures and are determining appropriate disciplinary action to ensure this does not happen again. We regret and apologize for this mistake and will immediately terminate every Asian on staff.
