Why black folks continue to say dumb things about Barack Obama's candidacy is a mystery to me. Makes me think that maybe that whole crabs in a barrel theory really applies to some of us. Some fool, a DJ named Chuck T, went on MTV last week and had this to say about Obama.

"[Obama] has proven he's willing to turn on anyone just to be President. He's not black, he's biracial! And he wasn't even raised by black people ... Barack doesn't embody the values and characteristics we as black people are raised with."

So what happens next, Spike "Militant Man" Lee responds to the Daily News with the following remarks.

"First, I go by the ‘one-drop rule,'" he said in Denver, where he has come to see firsthand his man accept the Democratic nomination for President. "One drop [of black blood], and you're black. The truth is, every African-American is biracial. Go back far enough, and you'll find the massah was in the slave quarters."

Gotta love Spike for always keepin it 200 percent real. Click the picture above to read the rest of what Spike had to say, including a response to the whole Jesse Jackson fiasco from a couple of weeks ago.
