Spike Lee Better Watch...

...Who He's Picking On
Hey Spike! Not everything is Black and White.

Spike Lee recently shot off his mouth against Clint Eastwood for not portraying black soldiers in his two war epics, "Flags of Our Fathers" and "Letters From Iwo Jima".

Eastwood shot back "A guy like him should shut his face." Eastwood explained that he studied Iwo Jima and says a small detachment of black troops were there as a part of a munitions company, "but they didn't raise the flag. The story is 'Flags of Our Fathers,' the famous flag-raising picture, and they didn't do that. If I go ahead and put an African-American actor in there, people'd go, 'This guy's lost his mind.' I mean, it's not accurate."

Lee replied "First of all, the man is not my father and we're not on a plantation either," "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." He also said he will take "the Obama high road and end the feud right here."

Spike! YOU started the feud. You did attack him and his integrity too. You also are not his father and what does a plantation have to do with anything? Is everything about race with you? You've gotta "Do the Right Thing" and own up to this mistake better than that.

Apologize. Otherwise, you're just a bitter ass who is trying to drum up any kind of publicity he can get for his own war film and now plug Obama as well.
