Spike Lee works for the NBA at SiriusXM. He sat front row during the announcement yesterday of the lifetime ban.
Let's examine his history of racist comments:
In Febuary Lee complained about the gentrification of Harlem in racial terms, telling an audience questioner who praised the changes in the neighborhood. Let me tell you right now, have you seen Fort Green park in the morning ? It's like the mother######g Westminter dog show,,,,,, When you see white mothers pushing their babies in strollers, three o'clock in the morning on 125th street, that must tell you something.
After visiting South Africa in the early 90's Spike stated I seriously wanted to pick up a gun and shoot whites. The only way to resolve matters is by bloodshed.
And he says this of interracial couples: I give interracial couples a look, Daggers. They get uncomfortable when they see me on the street.
After the Trayvon Martin shooting, Spike Lee posted the address of George Zimmerman's parents on Twitter.
Spike Lee has starred in NBA commercials, and now stars on their radio station on Sirus XM and is apparently the perfect person for a front-row seat about punishing racism in the NBA.
Anyone here think Mr. Silvers will be asking Spike Lee to step down anytime soon ? Don't hold your breath.
Its the old Double Standard.
Black People can say any number of dumb racist things and get away with it.
But us? We’re racist for even pointing out obvious things like this.
Made uncomfortable by the pipsqueak Spike? I doubt it. His animous probably stems from a general problem with women...
One (of many) signs of collapse is the fact that a mere sport consumes any attention at all when the economy is in a tailspin, our gubmit is composed of cretins, felons, and grifters, our MSM is a joke, slime has even invaded our sciences.
Really, basketball? Who gives a smelly Rap “artist”?
Yep, Spike Lee complains about gentrification.
He has said that he fears the loss of black culture or vibes of neighborhoods if too many whites start moving in.
Can you imagine the reaction, if any white person said they had concerns about blacks moving in, and changing the culture or vibe of the neighborhood?????
The rank hypocrisy of society, and the sports journalism community here in particular, on the issue of race make me wanna barf.
Creepy azz cracka’s kaint jump.
Jay-Z makes a statement whenever he sits courtside, particularly when his wife Beyonce is by his side.
Sterling’s remarks were absurd, but were also made in the privacy of his own home.
Does anyone think that just maybe, some of these folks who are so offended and indignant, such as Barkely and Magic and others, might have made some racially insensitive remarks in the privacy of their homes, just hanging out with their closest pals?
Spike lee should also be banned from the NBA for life to the exact same reasons.
i have found the perfect gig for the spiked one...
Did you know that Jay Z is an NBA team owner? So let’s see if Silver will apply the same punishments to him.
