SPIKE LEE BRINGS CALM TO RACE DEBATE

By / 06.09.08

Spike Lee has fired back* at Clint Eastwood, who had told him to "shut his face".

"First of all, the man is not my father and we’re not on a plantation either," he told ABCNEWS.com.

See, Spike knows the best way to cure racism is to respond to anything a white says with, "We ain’t on the plantation, motha***!"  To which a white should naturally respond, "Oh yeah? Well we ain’t on the mothaf***in’ Amistad either, bitch!"  Nothing says ‘let the healing begin’ like bringing up slavery.

"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." Lee has a proposal for Eastwood: "If he wishes, I could assemble African-American men who fought at Iwo Jima and I’d like him to tell these guys that what they did was insignificant and they did not exist," he said.

Which brings us to part II of A Complete Idiot’s Guide to Healing the Race Divide: Incorrectly attributing inflammatory statements to your opponent.  It’s way easier to make someone’s argument look bad when you make it for him!  Please, Spike, tell us more!

*Not literally, of course! He just issued a harshly-worded statement. But when black guys do that, we in the media believe it’s good journalism to use a gun metaphor.

I bet!  Scrawny midgets give me the creeps!  I can’t imagine how scared I’d be if I was a big black guy!  Goodness, I feel better already.  I think I’ll go buy an African shirt and not turn my car stereo down next time I drive through the black neighborhood.  Hooray for tolerance!
