Samuel L. Jackson has a few things he wants to say to President Obama in an interview with Playboy magazine.
“We know it ain’t because of his blackness, so I say stop trying to ‘relate’. Be a leader. Be fucking presidential.
“Look, I grew up in a society where I could say ‘I ain’t’ or ‘what it be’ to my friends. But when I’m out presenting myself to the world as me, who graduated from college, who had family who cared about me, who has a well-read background, I fucking conjugate.
“[Obama’s] still a safe dude. But with those Republicans, we’re now in a situation where even if he said, ‘I want to give you motherfuckers a raise,’ they’d go, ‘Fuck you! We don’t want a raise!’
“I don’t know how we fix this bullshit. How do we fix the fact that politicians aren’t trying to serve the people, they’re just trying to serve their party and their closed ideals?
“If Hillary Clinton decides to run, she’s going to kick their fucking asses, and those motherfuckers would rather see the country go down in flames than let the times change.
“You need to have your physical body out there in the streets and let these people – and the rest of the world – know. When our anti-war movement led the world, it was because people could see us in the streets, see our faces, hear the protest music.
“You can’t do that shit blogging in a room.”
