One can only imagine the understandable outrage of the mainstream media had the races in this diatribe been reversed. 

 Filmmaker Spike Lee recently made some shocking remarks regarding the influx of white residents into traditionally black neighborhoods. Decades after the American civil rights movement marked the end of our shameful segregation policy, Lee apparently wants to bring back the institution by keeping Caucasians out of his New York neighborhood.

His lengthy rant, complete with the liberal use of profanity, left little doubt that he wants to maintain exclude whites “in the south Bronx, in Harlem, in Bed Stuy, in Crown Heights” and other traditionally black communities.

“You can’t just come in the neighborhood and start bogarting and say, like you’re [expletive] Columbus and kill off the Native Americans,” he said. Lee asserted that whites bring with them their culture and effectively ruin the experience of being black in such neighborhoods.


  1. Heaven forbid whitey ruin the experience of being black.. wouldn't want you animals to stop shooting everyone all day!

  2. Someone who indulges in such a breathtaking degree of hypocrisy is effectively declaring to the world that they have no principles and operate on a basis of personal whims, not reason--that they are, in essence, nihilists. There is no point in trying to reason with such people--they have abandoned reason. There is no point in arguing from principles--they have none. There is no point in appealing to their sense of justice--"justice," to them, is whatever they want, when they want it. The only rational way to deal with such a tragically degraded human being is to treat them as what they are--a profoundly amoral and antisocial individual, unpredictable and prone to violence, and whose word means nothing. It is disappointing that such a person is treated as a "celebrity," and not an object of pity and loathing.
