One Drop of Slave Blood

Anyone who has any familiarity with the SCLC know what a joke they are. I've heard they used to be a respected organization, but that all happened before I was born. In my lifetime, it's a been a bunch of kooks.
The latest pearl of wisdom from the kook factory is this:

Michelle Obama is treated more roughly than her husband, because of her slave heritage.

That was according to Charles Steele Jr., president and CEO of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference on Saturday.

"Why are they attacking Michelle Obama, first lady Michelle Obama, and not really attacking, to that degree, her husband?” Steele asked. “Because he has no slave blood in him. He does not have any slave blood in him, but Michelle does."
