Ho Sit Down

This drawn up, skeletor looking mf called out Spike Lee for commenting on his racist casting practices:

Eastwood has rejected the Malcolm X director’s complaint that he had failed to include a single black soldier in his 2006 films Flags Of Our Fathers and Letters From Iwo Jima.

Rationalizing his choice, the actor-turned-director explains the African-American troops who were at battle didn’t take part in raising 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 go: “This guy’s lost his mind”. I mean, it’s not accurate.’

Referring to Lee, Eastwood adds: ‘A guy like him should shut his face.’

Ole Clint must still think he can roll Dirty Harry style or something. He needs to pull out his bi-focals and read those history books a little closer – then he would see that Spike is on point. Mark-ass geezer.

    Just, it’s weird. I’m a fan of Clints and a big fan of Spikes – the both of them have added so much to the art of filmmaking – but i am disappointed in both at their mutual disrespect.

    Clints movies were not general movies about WW2 they were about a specific group of people who were not black in real life. If Spike wants there to be a movie about black people in WW2 then maybe he should get off his ass and make one.

    I ashamed and feel sorry for the Latina woman married to racist asshole Clint Eastwood.

    Where is his respect for all the black folks that bought his movie tickets all these years? Damn, the racists are like coming out the woodwork showing their ass in full force this season.

    Spike Lee is a PIONEER. How dare Eastwood dismiss him like he is not an equal in their field?!!!

  • L&A

    pardon my typos. **I am ashamed and feel sorry for…**

  • What the...

    trust, this election year, a whOLE lot of Geezes will be getting out of pocket. i see a theme starting..just saying.

  • Nicole

    You all do know that Clint’s wife is black. I doubt he is a racist.

  • http://msjpeachy@aol.com xxJAMxx

    I love Spike Lee but he like to run his mouth too much. He fell out with Samuel Jackson a while back for running his mouth. He can say what he want to say about Clint Eastwood because he is not hurting for anything.

  • De

    Clint did the movie on Charlie Bird Parker, but didn’t include his black wife, only the white one. Where is that accuracy?

  • Ms Sharmaine

    I like Spike Lee but why does he care what Clint Eastwood produces and the absence of black actors in his films?

    Spike should produce movies that reflect the part of black soliders in Iwo Jima and let Clint do his movies.

    As black people we should not allow believe Hollyfake will produce movies with accurate information and equal representation.

    Clint’s movies are for entertainment not history lessons and Spike should know this!!!!!

  • Tbeenitsince87

    the bottom line is hollywood is the epitome of racism… And i think EVERYONE should talk less and DO more to make some changes.

    Spike Lee’s response:

    “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.”

    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. “I’m not making this up. I know history. I’m a student of history. And I know the history of Hollywood and its omission of the one million African-American men and women who contributed to World War II.”

    And Lee’s response to Eastwood’s claim of his historical ignorance — “I never said he should show one of the other guys holding up the flag as black. I said that African-Americans played a significant part in Iwo Jima,” he said. “For him to insinuate that I’m rewriting history and have one of the four guys with the flag be black … no one said that. It’s just that there’s not one black in either film. And because I know my history, that’s why I made that observation.”

    Lee ended the interview saying, “Even though he’s trying to have a Dirty Harry flashback, I’m going to take the Obama high road and end it right here. Peace and love.”
