Stephen Colbert v Debra Dickerson

15 02 2007

We don’t get The Colbert Report in the UK. Not over the air anyway. and because of my hectic schedule, I don’t get time to download it either. So I missed this interview with black activist (I’m assuming she is anyway) Debra Dickerson, promoting her new book, claiming Barack Obama isn’t actually black. Her reasoning is so off (you can only be black if you are descended from slaves), that I watched it with my mouth hanging open, waiting for the punchline. and there wasn’t one, she was serious. But hey, don’t let me influence you. Click here and watch Colbert take her argument apart for yourself. Thanks to James for the link.
