Spike Lee to Clint Eastwood: Slave Owner Racist!

130 Comments

Spike Lee thinks Clint Eastwood is a slave owner, and shouldn’t be telling him to “shut his face”. Or at least, that’s what ABCNews.com reports Lee as saying, in reply to Eastwood’s previous comments, in regard to Lee’s racism-tinted accusations against Eastwood, via black soldiers at Iwo Jima, vis-a-vis Eastwood’s “Flags of Our Fathers” movie. (If all that sounds confusing, read here and here.)

ABCNews.com got this response from Lee:

“First of all, the man is not my father and we’re not on a plantation either,” he told ABCNEWS.com. “He’s a great director. He makes his films, I make my films. The thing about it though, I didn’t personally attack him. 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.”

Lee has a proposal for Eastwood:

“If he wishes, I could assemble African-American men who fought at Iwo Jima and I’d like him to tell these guys that what they did was insignificant and they did not exist,” he said. “I’m not making this up. I know history. I’m a student of history. And I know the history of Hollywood and its omission of the one million African-American men and women who contributed to World War II.”

About those black soldiers at Iwo Jima, Eastwood told Focus Magazine this (via):

“Does he know anything about American history?” Eastwood told Focus when asked about Lee’s criticism. “The U.S. military was segregated til the Korean War, and the blacks in World War Two were totally segregated. The only black battalion on Iwo Jima was a small munitions supply unit that came to the beach.

“The story was about the men who raised the flag and we can’t make them black if they were not there. So tell him: Why don’t you go back and study your history and stop mouthing off!”

Lost in all this is the fact that Lee’s World War II movie “The Miracle at St. Anna” has the potential to be a great war movie. Check out the poster below via Cinematical.

    He sounds ridiculous. He’s so sensitive yet he feels free to fire off derogatory and potentially harmful accusations towards others. That plantation comment is offensive to Eastwood blacks,whites and inteligent people everywhere. What a dick bag.

    • Dave

      The plantation comment is not offensive its REALITY!

      • Dave is an racist fool

        You are a complete idiot and a disgrace to everyone who’s named dave!

        • I is an racist fool

          great use of English to prove your point. I am an racist fool too!

          • I agree with “dave is a racist

            I hate it when people use the “race card”. One of my closest friend always pulls it. Surely that means they are racist to think they have some sort of right that they can pull that card out because they are that race.
            We all need to move on and stop living in the past. We are now civlizied, can we not see here Spike is the one that is racist too Clint.
            I’m only 13 and I can see here exaclty what Spike is doing.
            He’s either a) jealous or b) trying to get publicity.

    Spike Lee needs to stop playing the race card every chance he gets. Yes, we get it. History has been terrible to a lot of people. But the way to make things better in the present and for the future is to work on NOW and STOP DRUDGING UP ever minescule little slight or taking everything and either a) making it personal or b) relating it to race.

    Personally, I’d like to tell Spike Lee what a piece of shit racist I think HE is. I stopped watching his movies because he can’t seem to make a film without including a white character spouting racial slurs.

    Note to Spike: Not all white people are bad. Most of us are good, honest people just trying to get by. Please, give us a break. Try talking to us without accusing us of being WHITE DEVILS. Who knows, you might even make a friend.

    Spike Lee never fails to garner media attention for his causes. This was a movie about the guys who raised the flag at Iwo. And Lee’s own racial tunnel vision shows when he doesn’t understand that Hayes, one of the flag raisers, was Native American. I wonder if Lee would similarly want equal angle representation in a movie about the Buffalo Soldiers?
