Spike Lee Invoke Racism, Never! Round 3 Spike Lee & Clint Eastwood … “We’re not on a plantation, Clint.”
What a shocker … Spike Lee uses the race card! Hey Spike, I thought you said you were going to take the high road in this matter? Or is this the high road for you? A “plantation” reference by a black man who was more money and power than most white people, heck most anyone in general … that’s priceless. Who really furthers racial division in America?
Since when does one movie director have a right to tell another how or what they should do with the direction of a production? The answer is you don’t. Not unless that director is Spike Lee and he is once again invoking what else? Racism. We are now presented with round 3.
In the recent war of words between directors Clint Eastwood and Spike Lee it was only a matter of time before Spike brought up the “slavery” issue. Why would it shock anyone? Spike is a one trick “racist” calling pony. In the latest name calling effort by Spike Lee toward Eastwood, Lee says the we’re not … “”on a plantation”.
The acrimonious feud between two of Hollywood’s best-known film directors reached a new level of name-calling and accusation at the weekend as Spike Lee invoked America’s bitter legacy of slavery in response to Clint Eastwood’s comments to the Guardian on Friday.
But after the remarks were reported around the world, Lee hit back, reminding the older man that they were not “on a plantation”.
Spike Lee’s comparison and reference to a plantation just shows how easy it is in today’s society to call some one a racist with no regard. The arrogance and race baiting used by Spike Lee is pathetic. So how or another Spike Lee make a plantation reference and now Eastwood is an angry old man. No Spike, you are a hateful race baiter who had used the division of races to your benefit for years. It is disgusting that the very people who claim to be one thing, yet further racial division. Keeping the races at each others throats is a cottage industry in the US.
In responding to Eastwood’s Guardian interview, he said: “First of all, the man is not my father and we’re not on a plantation either. He’s a great director. He makes his films, I make my films … And a comment like ‘A guy like that should shut his face’ – come on Clint, come on. He sounds like an angry old man right there.”

i can see clint one shotting lee in his smart ass mouth and lee crying. the biggest racists are the ones always crying foul !
yeah, and however will we convince Clint he’s not with Spike on a plantation somewhere? WTF is Spike talking about? Is America a plantation? It is the only way the two are living in one together….
Wow…..sounds like Spike skipped his meds today.
#1 Super Dave is right…usually the biggest racists are the one’s always crying foul.
Lee needs to get a life and Clint needs to ignore any more of his rants, me thinks.
Is Spike also an advisor to Obama in his spare time?
Spike Lee is just a nigger with money, nothing more or less. This Porch Monkey’s movies suck and his racials attacks are his attempts to make chicken soup out of chicken shit!
Racism is perpetuated those so called anti-racism activist. If they would let it go, so would the rest of the world!!!
SPIKE LEE IS ONE OF THE WORST RACISTS ON EARTH, I WILL NEVER EVER WAT HIS MOVIES, IS HE FROM CHICAGO?
That idiot Lee is just as stupid as Obama’s bimbo wife. All of them play the race card when their bigotted little minds try to think. Even Hillary tried the sex/race card (well no surprise with that dumb broad). Here in Houston we don’t think like that (when we think at all).
Spike is barking up the wrong tree here. Let’s put Clint(old guy) and Spike(Racist)in a boxing ring to settle this.(my money is on the old guy)
I agree that Spike needs to shut his Racist Pie Hole up before Clint makes his day (PUNK). That’s all I have to say about that.
Wow Bill, wow. Sad world when someone like Lee uses a sensitive issue to promote himself. There was not black units in the Marines on Iwo. Why should Eastwood have to rewright history to apease people like Lee. Is that the MO of Lees movies, spreading lies about history for his gain. Lee is pathetic.
#10: that’s why ol’ spike was in special ed class !
Wow Superdave #11…Spike was THAT advanced?????
#5- Bill….Who let you out of your cage? Sheesh…..While we all get angry of just another instance of what I call “reverse-racisim” of Caucasians….I’m thinking…. the venom you just spewed sounds similar to many “Skinhead” rants.
While there is some truth to what you say about a black man feeling more empowered versus another man of ANY skin color (with all his money and fame), think you could have toned that down a bit? Ridiculous and uncalled for in this day and age!
Just my lousy 2 cents worth.
