And yet somehow there is no outrage about Jackson’s “racist”, bigoted remark against whites. Hypocrisy at its highest level. MB

Muslims are “the new black men.”
Actor Samuel L. Jackson declared last weekend that Muslims have become “the new young black men” and that he “really wanted” the San Bernardino Islamic terrorists to be white.
The Washington Times reports that in a Hollywood Reporter interview Sunday, Jackson said,
“When that thing happened in France, we were sitting there going, ‘Oh, my God, these terrorists!’ 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.”
Jackson also had predictable criticism for his occasional golfing partner, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump – that he’s a crazy racist who hates “the common man.” After all, we all know that the Democrats are the party for black people and the common man:
“There’s absolutely nothing I can do. There are some other people that aren’t as open about what he’s saying that are running also, you know, that are just as crazy, that have just as much ill will toward the common man — and not just the common black man. People who don’t have a certain amount of money don’t mean anything to them.”
Asked whom he’s going to back for President, the actor said – shockingly – that he’s “forever a Democrat”:
“I’m gonna vote for Hillary. I mean, I love Bernie [Sanders] — Bernie’s a man of the people — but he can’t win. So I gotta cast my vote for a person that can keep those other people from winning, OK? Not to mention, you know, Hillary kinda knows the job, she can hit the ground running. She didn’t have a huge learning-curve like Barack [Obama] had or some other people had.”
Bernie Sanders a man of the people? Hillary knows the job? This is why no interviewer should ask for political insights from celebrities.

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ.
It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
