Jackson, 64, asserts that Obama purposely drops the “g” sound off of many words so he sounds like a common guy, such as saying , “I’m just sayin’…” instead of “I’m just saying….”
In speaking in a Playboy magazine interview, Jackson said that people know Obama doesn’t pronounce words the way he does because of his “blackness.” He tells Obama, via the interview, to just stop trying to relate. In Jackson’s words, he told Obama to “be f---ing presidential.
Jackson said he grew up in a society where he could speak incorrect grammar such as saying “it ain’t” or “what it be.” He says that when he presents himself to the world, however, as a college-educated man he conjugates verbs. Jackson admits to being somewhat of a “grammar police” and doesn’t mind that label.
