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.”
