In defense of criticism on Obama being only ‘half black’ or not black enough, Spike Lee said ‘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.’

Spike continued his defense saying ‘You can’t be black and go to Harvard Law School? You can’t be black and be articulate?’ Spike would also defend the statement Obama made that got him his famous criticism from Jesse Jackson in regards to black fathers saying, ‘You can’t hide that stuff, Single-parent households, high-school dropouts. The statistics are there for everybody to see. We have to confront that head-on.’
Spike would also defend Obama’s highly criticized choice of Biden as a running mate despite Biden’s earlier criticism of Obama, ‘Look, Biden was trying to be the nominee then. If Barack’s cool with him, then I am. And Joe Biden can be the muscle guy” who can tussle with John McCain.’

Lee would also address the polls and encourage Obama supporters not to be overconfident, saying ‘Don’t be like the New England Patriots – think that you just have to show up,’ he said. ‘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!’
