there were no black people that raised the flag in eastwoods flim, and thats what prompted spike lees film. spike lee insults eastwoods film, eastwood tells him to shutup and spike lee automatically resorts to a racist comment telling him "we're not on a plantation!" spike lee enjoys throwing out the racist card and isn't half the director of eastwood. spike lee has also stated that he only wants to be interviewed by black reporters, after malcom x was released he said there was a racist conspiracy to miscalculate the box office receipts, and he also has criticized QT for using the word ****** but has no problem with nwa. spike lee is a biggot
You're dumb if you think Spike Lee isn't an amazing director.
But if we get on the treadmill together, there's two things: You're getting off first, or I'm going to die. It's really that simple, right?
sigh...i never understood why spike lee called clint eastwood a racist because he failed to portray african american soldiers. The movies he has done so far unfortunately does not have a lot of african americans in combat. Letters of Iwo Jima was made from the perspective of the Japanese....so it is save to say there was not that many african americans serving the Japanese army.
Unfortunately African Americans as well as Japanese Americans did not combat in WWII with the exception of a few segregated units. The US military was still segregated during WWII. It was not until Korea was the military desegregated.
Who cares if blacks did a lot during the wars? Anyone saying that is being racist themselves. If we are all equal, then we are all the same. You can't have a subset of black people and white people when talking about things. PEOPLE fought in the war. That is all. We don't say "people with green eyes did a lot during the wars," do we? No, because all people have eyes, just as all people have skin. So stop being racist ****s you asshats.
edit: Also: I'm not even one to like black people. They immediately have a negative connotation connected to them when I meet them, but most of the time they overcome that. I'm just sick of all the people screaming "racism" when they're doing it themselves. TKAMB much?
