Samuel L. Jackson Says What We Are All Thinking

The actor went on to say that the recent release “Fruitvale Station” was a braver and more honest film in dealing with race in America. He said, “It explains things like the shooting of Trayvon Martin, the problems with stop and search, and is just more poignant. America is much more willing to acknowledge what happened in the past: ‘We freed the slaves! It’s all good!’ But to say: ‘We are still unnecessarily killing black men’ – let’s have a conversation about that.”
