I personally think Spike Lee's vocal ourburts towards the work of other directors is tacky and rude; however, I can not disqualify his body of work and contributions to the artistry because of it

spike has gone in plenty times on Tyler Perry.  Now that Tyler is slowly moving away from Madea I wonder what Spike gone criticize now?  Considering the wealth that Tyler has built I was hopin' they would come together but Spike's ego and lack of foresight buss him in his own ass.  Tyler could have been a powerful ally had Spike not let jealousy get the better of him.


history lessons

i like how he ends by saying 'you say you're glad the shooter wasnt black, instead of im sad that these things happened'

Speaking of two-dimensional characters. The characters in Do The Right Thing were one dimensional. They were intentionally written that way, but the people who don't like the movie (black people included) tend to be the ones who didn't understand that Spike used one dimensional characters to get across a point. I just thought its kind of funny that his magnum opus had caricature characters. 

I agree that it's significant. Classic movie. Influential. Aside from Crooklyn, I'm meh on pretty much every other Spike Lee joint.

Crooklyn is about the only Spike Lee movie that I really really love.

If you don't think Black people are better off with mutli-dimensional characters written by a Black director who casts Black actors as the MAIN characters vs. a White director who routinely uses "ni99er" in his work and casts a Black actors as side kicks and plot devices in a slave western epic than by all means, support your beloved Whitey

but why don't we stop disrespecting a man who has done a great deal for Black actors and filmmakers, whether you like his work or not.... whether you think he's "whiny" and "bitter" or not
.



Because you asked if we are better off...if thats the case to make then why not make that case for every movie with the use of blk ppl. Him hiring black actors dont make black ppl as a whole better off.  It may make those black actors better off but black ppl as a whole? The option of weather or not u feel he uses the N word excessive and unncessarily in his movies is a matter of opinion.

Jamie foxx was not a side kick in the flick he was much more than that. But what i do think is interesting is that blk ppl are angry at the amount of times the n-word was said in a movie that depicting slavery and are offended.....If white ppl where up and arms about it we would be saying they are trying to soften the harsh reality of what slavery was.  Now many blacks are doing that for them in a backwards kind of way.....

There were many uncomfortable scenes in the flick but slavery was just that... it was cringe worthy and disgusting. QT didnt invite this treatment... it was a reality. I can understand passing on a movie and not wanting to support it in any way but you cant your criticize does lose weight when you havent watched it and formed ur own opinion.
