While it's hard to take seriously a 50-something year old man who wears horn-rimmed glasses and a too-large baseball cap cocked to the side, I appreciate nevertheless film director Spike Lee's frank comments about President Obama's chances in the upcoming election and even more his absolution for my scepticism about those chances:
“I can't say to all the people that are unhappy with him that they're racist people,” Lee said of Obama’s critics. “People ain't got jobs, people are hurting. So I don't care what color you are, if people are out of work, it's tough. And then when you're the first African American president, that's not helping either.”
