But he’s not a racist.
Dog bites man.
I’m just thinking what the MSM would say if it was the other way round; a white guy talking about what’s happened to the Italian/Jewish/etc. neighborhoods taken over the opposite way ...
Better that they remain decrepit, crime-infested Hellholes.
And why does it take an influx of white New Yorkers in the south Bronx, in Harlem, in Bed Stuy, in Crown Heights for the facilities to get better?’ he said.
Because maybe they don’t trash it out as much and respect property? Just sayin’ homey.
Lee pointed the finger at black New Yorkers who have moved into historically white neighborhoods and changed the environment, arguing that those changes have caused the areas to evolve into something completely different.
Notice the difference?
Gee, I don't know. Maybe it is because they don't p*ss in the elevators. Or smoke crack on their front stoops? Or toss their trash down the stairways? Ya think?
‘When you see white mothers pushing their babies in strollers, three oclock in the morning on 125th Street, that must tell you something.’
Sure does. The order to kill them cracker babies was not taken seriously.
the weird thing is, I’ve liked several of his movies. He actually can be subtle and insightful in that format.
John Savage played a mostly sympathetic white homesteader in Bed Stuy in “Do The Right Thing”
Don’t look now, Spike, but there’s been millions of black abortions concurrent with the arrival of tens of millions of Hispanic illegals. What do you think of that wholesale population replacement?
less crime, less decay, MORE mixed racially
oh how horrile for Spike Lee
But I bet ole Spike doesn’t own a house in any of those ghetto neighborhoods.
How’s he going to be able to make money by making movies about terrible neighborhoods if whitey fixes them all up?
You can bet that Thug Lee doesn’t still live in a decrepit, crime-infested Hellhole.
He must be mad that white people cleaned them up.
Maybe he should be ranting about Planned Parenthood and their ongoing genocide of black babies.
But of course the moron forgot to mention that the white and immigrant culture was wiped out by the black culture before this.

Typical Liberal. He doesn't want blacks to do any better either. He thinks they should be proud of their squalor and dependency. But he managed to move out of the "poor" neighborhood that was inhabited primarily of African Americans.
No Hypocrisy here.
Baby mommies and daddies. Food stamps. Mother’s Day. Gangsta. Hold your gun like ‘this’. Obamaphones. Welfare checks. Colt45. Thug Ball. Keep your pimp hand strong.
Such a rich culture I could go on forever
