On Segregation -- "These are the same guys: Trump and all those assholes, Mitch McConnell"

Samuel L. Jackson Operates Like He Owns the Place. (He Does.)


"I know how many motherfuckers hate me. ’I’m never going to see a Sam Jackson movie again.’ Fuck I care? I already cashed that check. Fuck you."
<snip>

You came up during real segregation.

It was normal. That was the way of the world. I lived in a black world. My teachers were black. I went to school with black kids. I only interacted with white people when I went to work with my grandfather, who worked for white people.
<snip>

I always ask people in my family this: Did growing up in segregation make you feel angry?

I don’t think I was ever angry about it. I’m angrier now about it than I was then just because I see these guys and I know these are the same guys: Trump and all those assholes, Mitch McConnell. But they’re the same fucking guys. And when I hear their voices, I hear the same voices. Those twangs where they didn’t specifically call you “nigger,” they said “nigra.” “The nigras.” There was no doubt about where they stood, that you were never going to be their equal and, if possible, they were going to make sure you never had as much shit as they had. - Esquire

4. Great actor. His performance in Pulp Fiction made me a lifetime fan.

"I didn't hit no motherfuckin' bump!" I am rolling every time I see that film.

He played that part perfectly. I liked him then, and I like him now. He doesn't look his age. Heck, I'm 60 and he looks better than I do.
