Samuel L. JAckson
Samuel L. Jackson sat down with a newspaper in the UK to discuss his career and the movie Django: Unchained. In the movie, Sammy plays the head slave who doesn’t seem affected by slavery. When asked how he felt about the word, Samuel said that it didn’t bother him at all.
“Did they have another name to call the Black people they were talking about at the time? If you’re going to deal with the language of the time, you deal with the language of the time. And that was the language of the time. I grew up in the South. I heard ‘nigger’ all my life. I’m not disturbed by it.”
