Spike Lee: “Everyone’s Biracial”

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Bolitics, News

Posted by Bossip Staff

Spike Lee sticks up for Barack in regards to some people saying he isn’t black enough:

“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. You can’t be black and go to Harvard Law School? You can’t be black and be articulate?”

Lee also “respectfully disagrees” with Jesse Jackson, who threatened to castrate Obama for publicly chastising missing black fathers. “You can’t hide that stuff,” Lee told us. “Single-parent households, high-school dropouts. The statistics are there for everybody to see. We have to confront that head-on. Don’t be like the New England Patriots – think that you just have to show up,” he preached. “The Republicans are going to try all kinds of hijinks. Shenanigans. Trickery. Flimflam. They’ll try to hornswoggle us, bamboozle us. It’s not a done deal!”

    I AGREE WITH SPIKE. AS I’VE SAID ON HERE A MILLION TIMES. EVERYONE IS BIRACIAL IF YOU ARE BLACK AMERICAN. AND MASSA HAS BEEN IN EVERY LAST SINGLE ONE OF YOUR SLAVE QUARTERS. IN MY PARTICULAR CITY, IT IS SO TO THE POINT WHERE MY BOYFRIENDS GRANDPARENTS ARE DIRECT DECENDANTS OF THOMAS JEFFERSON. AND SO ARE SEVERAL OF ALOT OF THE BLACK PEOPLE I KNOW HERE. SO THERE.

    I was not a fan of Barack and to tell the truth, he irks me but I love love Michelle Obama. now that’s a real woman. i do hope that Barack wins and triumphs over all the lies the good ole republicans will plant. No more C grade republican idiots out of touch with real people’s problems.

    Barack Is A Black Man Who Has Worked His Way Through A White Run Country. You Can Bet He Has Had His Share Of Racism And Prejudices Just Like He’s Getting Now. Is That Black Enough For You?

  • J8yb!

    Spoken like a true lifer.

  • Ms. Leo

    Only 8 comments? I mean Spike isn’t a political commentator, but we really got to open our eyes on this folk. Even if Obama gets the Presidential seat, we got to be 200% on our post because plenty folk will be PISSED. I read that there is increased activity on supremist and racist websites as well as threats on his life. It ain’t over yet like Spike said!!

    ARE YOU NIGGRZ READY FOR A RACE RIOT? ..NO!

  • Candid Canuck

  • Aunt Viv

    Interesting points Spike-and your new movie looks really good!

    “Go back far enough, and you’ll find the massah was in the slave quarters.”

    AMEN SPIKE!

    It’s funny how white people like to use the one drop rule against black people until it works against them, there were some trying to say that Brack won’t actually be the first black president because he’s biracial so for the sake of putting a ink spot on white Amerikka’s history books he’s not black enough, but if he’s a everyday brotha trying to catch a cab or get a job you best believe his ass is black..Yes Barack is black, his ethnic background is biracial but he identifies himself as a black man.

    This is why I back Spike 1,000,000%—America can’t handle too much truth, that’s why they throw so many stones. For thise who aren’t ready—-y’all better get ready, BARACK IS IN THE HOUSE!!!

    Spike ain’t never lie. (And never made a bad movie in my view)

    I agree with some of the things he says as well. There is a difference in what we as African Americans look like oppose to the our brothas and sistas from Africa. My great grandmother recently turned 100 yrs old, and she has kept in contact with a woman descended from her grandfather’s slave master. He use to tell her stories of his days as a slave. I know a lot of times people say that slavery was so long ago, but really it wasn’t. If my great grandmother can tell me stories direct from her grandfather that was a slave, it truly wasn’t that long ago.

    1. Wrong. We’ve been telling ourselves that bit about slave owners long past its expiration date. It’s not supported by facts, and most certainly not by DNA evidence. That’s as bad as the old Negro fish tale about “Indian blood.” Our myth about miscegenation is just the flip side of their myth about miscegenation, except that for us it’s amusing; for them it’s anathema.

    2. He’s right about the Patriots! They got outplayed and outcoached while waiting to be handed a Super Bowl trophy for a pretty good season.

    I don’t always agree with Spike’s comments, but he’s been making intelligent arguments in the press while backing Obama. Keep up the good work, Spike! YES WE CAN in ’08!
