-- now here in the East Coast another prominent African American Hollywood heavyweight accusing the Tea Party.
Of racism Samuel L.
Jackson echoing Morgan Freeman now saying quote.
I think everything right now is geared toward getting that guy out of office whatever that means it's not politics.
It is not economics it all boils down pretty much to race.
It is a shame.
While Al west -- Republican congressman out of Florida he's the only Republican member of the Congressional Black Caucus.
And he's a member of the Tea Party caucus in the house -- -- thank you for your.
Time good morning thanks for having -- -- what's -- with Samuel Jackson saying.
Well I think Samuel Jackson -- to pay more attention to the upcoming release of the movie avengers next summer and not getting concerned with the politics.
And the policies of a failed administration.
You know when Samuel L.
I guess disregards the sixteen point 7% unemployment rate in the black community -- -- -- percent unemployment rate for black adult males.
At 845 to 46% unemployment for black teenagers I think the races in the he has talked about his coming out of White House in this administration.
It's not coming from conservative such as myself.
Tried to stimulate in sent to conducive with the right type policies that can turn around those numbers of epic proportions in the black.
So he clearly doesn't -- clearly doesn't see it that -- But what what you're suggesting is the blame needs to be an administration for lack of effectiveness correct.
That's absolutely right this is not about a person that's about policies about policies that fail this about a stimulus that failed us about a two trillion dollar health care law that already is seeing a rise -- insurance bosses failed so I think that that's where Samuel L.
Jackson -- to places emphasis and now his focus instead of trying to look at the tea parties.
Scapegoat because the Tea Party standing on fiscal responsibility.
Limited government this constitutionally.
And also are free market -- enterprise systems as well as on national city.
-- you know we're watching some some video here that was taken some Tea Party -- some time ago.
What has been your experience at these events.
My experience that those -- -- that people are looking for individuals.
And it's not about -- is all about your character is all about the principles of government.
Governance that you promote that we'll turn around.
-- -- -- the United States of America.
Race is becoming an issue in this campaign already there.
And yet in our Herman cain's.
Bubble -- up for whatever reason you know straw poll in Florida.
Where he finished in a commanding first place.
And all accounts say -- a fairly good debate down there in Florida as well about a week and a half ago.
He was asked about race and politics.
As a Republican just yesterday on fox and listens.
I believe that as the Republican nominee that I will get a minimum of a third of the black vote not because I'm black.
But because of the solutions open on the table and the people who have taken for themselves and considering these solutions it chance -- ends whatever ethnic group that you might be and I think I was curious to know what you think about what he's been saying recent.
About African Americans and also would you comment on that CBS is out -- -- poll -- just Herman Cain tied with Mitt Romney at 17%.
No what do you make of that in the rise of Herman Cain and how he suggested that.
African Americans have gone democratic for the wrong reasons.
Well first of all what you see is obviously -- McCain gets a -- of -- candidate who gets a lot of Tea Party support so that negates -- Samuel Jackson and Morgan Freeman talked about now when you look at the black community.
Followed by eighteen to 20% identify themselves as conservative so that is -- number that is an increasing some of the very critical conservative minds out there Thomas Sowell Walter Williams happen to be African American.
And I think that what you say what Herman Cain is someone that.
Is against the tide he is not a career politician he has come forth with common sense solutions -- what is happening in our country as far as our economic situation and turn things around this course and the conditions for job growth in this country.
I'd like to see -- -- the stronger on national security because I think we cannot lose focus on that.
Are you surprised at all what Herman -- doing you.
Know I'm not surprised because I think that this is a wide open field.
And Americans and conservatives and people on -- Republicans not apologized.
Individuals based upon the message that they cannot present that we'll turn things around in this country because as we say if the president.
Admitted -- on Sunday that people aren't as good as as good -- -- -- were four years ago and I think that's directly attributable to some of the failed policies he's put forth.
Sir thank you for your time I would -- -- thanks so let's get on about not just this but also what's happening in our country and what you're doing right.
