Samuel L. Jackson Has Figured Out How To Avoid The Django Unchained “N-Word” Controversy


Quinton Tarrentino’s movie “Django Unchained” has stirred controversy over its frequent and pronounced use of the N-word. One of the stars of the movie, Samuel L. Jackson, has hit on a pretty novel way to address the issue. In an interview with a Houston reporter he positively makes the poor guy squirm. Here’s the text, the video is below.

Reporter: “There’s been a lot of controversy surrounding the usage of the n-word in this movie,”

Jackson “‘No’? ‘Nobody’? ‘None’? The word would be..?”

Reporter: “I don’t want to say it,”

Jackson “Why not?”

Reporter: “I don’t like to say it,”

Jackson: “Have you ever said it?”

Reporter: “No sir.”

Jackson: “Try it, try it… We’re not going to have this conversation unless you say it.


Jackson: Do you want to move on to another question?”

Reporter: “Yes”

    SLJ was baiting the reporter into saying it, so that he could then jump into faux outrage over a white guy using the word.

    I like him as an actor. If he has something to say about acting I might be interested. Other than that I could care less what he had to say about anything.

    If anybody ever wondered about the purpose and practical effect of NewSpeak, wonder no more.

    However, I’d say that EricSteel is right: this was a set-up. Given the controversy that lefties and MiniTru (BIRM) ginned up over “macaca” (doesn’t anybody actually know what that word means???), can you imagine the field day they’d have over a white guy saying “n*gger” to Samuel L. Jackson? Hell, as we saw a couple of years ago, nobody actually has to SAY it; one merely has to get some black member of Congress to claim that he THINKS that he heard it.

    I mean, unless it came out of the mouth of Robert KKK Byrd…

      “Macaca” means “monkey” in Spanish, like macaque.

      Reporter had no balls.

    Nigger! There I said it. This society has become so politically correct that the niggers have backed everybody into a corner and are laughing their asses off over it. They fucking own you and your speech. So much for the 1st amendment. Bah. Spineless weenies.

    Afer SLJ tweeted that he would like to see a lot of people killed by a hurricane in Florida, I have refused to believe anything he says or see his movies. I used to like him and think a lot of him until then.

  • Jack Zimms

    Both Jackson and the reporter showed themselves as cowards.

  • It’s a word. It has as much power as you let it have. If actors in a movie can use it multiple times, then a reporter in an interview can use it once.

    Okay, reality check. Exactly how do you think they referred to black people in that era – and for much of the history of the US. Stop pretending the past doesn’t exist!
