Actor Samuel L. Jackson admitted in a recent interview that he was disappointed when he found out the San Bernardino terrorists were Muslims and went on to describe what he’d have preferred:

“When that thing happened in France, we were sitting there going, ‘Oh, my God, these terrorists!’ Mr. Jackson, 67, told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview published Sunday. “And I can’t even tell you how much that day the thing that happened in San Bernardino — I was in Hawaii — how much I really wanted that to just be another, you know, crazy white dude, and not really some Muslims, because it’s like: ‘Oh, s–. It’s here. And it’s here in another kind of way.’ Now, OK, it happened on an Army base and it happened somewhere else. But now?

“It’s like they have a legitimate reason now to look at your Muslim neighbor, friend, whatever in another way. And they become the new young black men,” he added.


In the interview, Jackson said he’s backing Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary but referred to self-proclaimed enemy of Wall Street Bernie Sanders as a “man of the people.” No word on how the credit card company Jackson promotes in commercials feels about that or his comments about San Bernardino.
