Spike Lee: There is a 'War on the Black Male'

Racism sells movie tickets
  • Yes, a Black President and a Black Attorney General are allowing a "war" on Black males to rage.  If you believe that I have some swampland in Florida to sell you. 

Tuesday on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” director Spike Lee argued there is a bigger “war on black males” and that the Michael Brown case is tapping into that larger rage.

Lee said, “Many people thought that the moment that President Obama put his hand on Abraham Lincoln’s bible and took the oath, racism would disappear, gone, for the post-racial era. that is not the case. If you look what happened in Ferguson, it happened in LA with the Rodney King verdict and Liberty City in Miami and happened in Detroit 67, happened in the assassination of Dr. King and happened in the Harlem riots.” […]

“I see it. It’s about Trayvon Martin and Michael Davis and Michael Brown shot a couple days ago in St. Louis a couple blocks away another African-American man was shot, was shot and killed today. They said he had a knife. I think there is a war on the black male and it’s tearing the country apart in my opinion.” he concluded.
