Famous Black Actor to Obama: “Stop Talking Black in Public! F-ing Conjugate!” (But Says Obama Ebonics OK in Private)

By Debbie Schlussel

Like Oprah Winfrey, Hillary Clinton, and other pretentious wealthy Blacks–real and pretend (see Hillary)–Barack Obama speaks the Queen’s English to White audiences and Ebonics to Black audiences. And actor Samuel L. Jackson is calling him out on it. Jackson says that while it is okay for Obama to speak in jive to his homies privately, he should “represent” like an educated person in public appearances and stop dropping his “G”s and so on at speeches before Black audiences. Here’s what he told Playboy (if you don’t want to visit Playboy–everyone knows people “only read it for the articles”–go here for the highlights of the interview):


On President Obama consciously dropping gs off the ends of words to sound like Joe Average: “First of all, we know it ain’t because of his blackness, so I say stop trying to ‘relate.’ Be a leader. Be (effing) presidential. Look, I grew up in a society where I could say ‘It 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 what cared about me, who has a well-read background, I (effing) conjugate.”

I don’t agree with everything (actually, probably anything) Jackson says or does (he’s generally a racist), but at least he had the guts to call out Obama. On the other hand, only a Black guy could do this and get away with it. And I do agree with this part, below, too, as I have frequently lamented “Mediocrity Nation” a/k/a America on this site:

On never settling for mediocrity: “On Twitter someone will write, ‘Your an idiot,’ and I’ll go, ‘No, you’re an idiot,’ and all my Twitterphiles will go, ‘Hey, Sam Jackson, he’s the grammar police.’ I’ll take that. Somebody needs to be. I mean, we have newscasters who don’t even know how to conjugate verbs, something Walter Cronkite and Edward R. Murrow never had problems with. How the … did we become a society where mediocrity is acceptable.”

So, how the bleep did we become a society where mediocrity is acceptable? That’s kinda like asking how the bleep did we become a society where Samuel L. Jackson is a major movie star and the movie “Django Unchained” (read my review) is a major hit?

Same answer.

But never forget to judge a president by his ACTIONS – and discount the words which are mostly meaningless when uttered by politicians.

This just shows Jackson’s stupidity. He’s not criticizing Obama for anything substantial such as ObamaSoros’ furthering the oppression and divisiveness in black America, but criticizing him for talkin’ Ebonics when addressing black audiences. BFD.

Every filthy politician (redundant) tailors his speech to the group he’s speaking to and has since the Roman Republic.

DS_ROCKS! on September 25, 2013 at 5:53 pm

    DS ROCKS: BFD is right. Condescending affectation is a perfect fit for Obama.

    But G-d, if only he quit saying “folks”. I can barely stands it when he does.

      ” FOLKS”!!!! …. SHADES of Stephen Foster….la la la… obummer must like the “DARKIES ” too. He must love “WAY DOWN on the Suwanee” and all the “DOOO DAH!! DOOO DAH!!!” in his world.

      Camptown ladies love his song… and his dance and his furry black dog and spotted pony show….and his SHOW BOATING…that IS Soooooo, OBUMMER!!!

I am surprised by so few comments on this so far. If the engineers and all of the scientists in the Black Community would wake up and smell the coffee, they could make a fortune working in the oil industry in Gabon and say good bye to Obama. If I were a qualified engineer, I would be taking up BP, Shell Oil, and all of the oil producers on an opportunity to rake in millions of dollars working in the area.

I noticed the tons of advertisements for engineers and specialists for Gabon.

I am sure that Dick Gregory’s favorite dictator would be glad to provide all the luxury and accomodations to harvest all of that Black Gold or Gabon Crude.

Who needs Ebonics and a ghetto when you could live in a palace like that dictator and have all of the comforts of home.

Do not take my word for it check out those advertisements.

Can you imagine Winston Churchill dropping his g’s, or affecting a Cockney accent?

It is hard to have clarity of thought without clarity of language, and what Jackson is actually saying is that a leader is supposed to elevate others, not stoop to their real or imagined level. There is somewhat of a relationship between language and politics in general — if someone compromises language, as Shrillary, Obama, etc. all do, they are more likely to base their politics on whatever the lowest common denominator wants to hear. Principled language implies principled politics.

Jackson could have gone further, of course, but that does not negate what is positive about his comments.

Hey Debbie any man who says that they “just read the articles” in Playboy is either a homosexual or a democrat(just kidding demos don’t go and cry). Anyway it seems ole Mace Windu has taken too many purple light saber shots to the head. He should know that dirtbag politicians like the O’Clown tailor their speech to whatever audience they’re talking to. When the dope talks to an all black audience he shucks and jives and talks like and uneducated moron. The thing is that the mostly black liberal knuckleheads don’t care. They say he’s one of us and continue to drink the koolaid. Never mind what this fools policies have done to the black community. “Shaft” Jackson also knows that only a fellow “brotha” could ever say that about our black president. Any white person actor or otherwise would get a “Oh no he di’int and be branded a racist. So many black people still think that speaking like an intelligent human is “talking white”. Which is just ignorant. One other idiotic thing is a white liberal dunderhead ie PIAPS Clinton, Joe(Bite Me) Biden can also get away with talking like a moron in front of black people. Let a white republican do that an the blacks would probably string him up. Black racists like SLJ should just STFU and act because he would never call out his favorite president on anything associated with his corrupt administration.

Jackson to Obama: ENGLISH mother– do you speak it properly?

He is right about the general prevalence of stupidity and poor grammar in this country. The President, as an educated man (which he should be, whether or not he actually is) should set a good example in that regard. That said, so many more reasons to go after this President exist, but Jackson will never call him out on any of that because he approves of leftist racism.

Brian R. on September 25, 2013 at 10:04 pm

Too bad Jackson is one of the few who can say something like this and get away with it without a boycott or threats of them or worse.

Hey, Sam … Barry is not a Black Man. His Momma was Caucasian. So, since you pimp for this guy talking smack to the rest of us about Obama … that makes YOU the racist, pal.

    Jack, even with a white mom, Obama can call himself “black”. Because unless they are African immigrants or the children of African immigrants, every person in the United States who calls themselves “black” is actually genetically mixed-race.

    DTrain on September 26, 2013 at 1:05 pm

Obama did not learn that he was suppose to be and act black until he came back from Indonesia and went to school in Hawaii.

I am sure that he did not learn to talk Ebonics at the private school in Hawaii.

And Occidental College is far from the ghetto in LA.

Barack Obama has tended to be condescending for years. He normally talks down to his audiences, even when they are supposedly friendly.

That was awesome. Is there an app for it?

Pete on September 26, 2013 at 9:32 am

ROTFLMAO!!! That’s actually a pretty fun idea, Pete.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on September 26, 2013 at 9:42 am

Hopefully, since no one buys playboy to read the articles, the White House probably has not read this article. It has probably gone unnoticed there until you brought it up.

Obama like Hitler when he addresses a crowd speaks to what is in their head and their ideas as his way of connecting. It is how he has managed to elected twice as president.

Jackson better have some good work lined up or he is effing out of the movie business. He will be doing dog food commercials or worse.

Like what it be bitch.

Conjugate it.

Panhandle on September 26, 2013 at 11:00 am

Let him keep talking like a hood rat and a retard. Who cares. Him, and the zombies that support him are destroying our country. I have no interest in encouraging them to speak English.

RT on September 26, 2013 at 4:47 pm

Everybody give a golf clap to Sammy Jackson.

Now move along.
