Spike to Clint:

'We're Not on a Plantation!'

6/7/2008 1:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Director Spike Lee has done what no one thought would ever happen. He's brought back Dirty Harry!

0607_spike_clint_tmz-1
After complaints from Spike Lee claiming that Clint Eastwood didn't include black soldiers in his two Iwo Jima films, Eastwood decided to come back on the controversial director with some words of his own saying, " A guy like him should shut his face."

Lee then further fueled the drama fire saying, "First of all, the man is not my father and we're not on a plantation either. He's a great director ... 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."

Missing your afternoon nap would make you cranky too!

White people constantly receive signals that there is something wrong with being white, that we are criminal somehow. A militance among a few blacks is being simplistically cultivated for the purpose of political leveraging. Be careful however. A strategy of leveraging for political gain will backfire into bickering and economic underdevelopment for the US, as people and business will be driven overseas into more hospitable climates of economic growth and social influence, Mr.Lee! Many countries will seize the flaws in such a self-centered political leveraging strategy-- to their own gain and at the expense of our wellbeing as a nation. Where is Mr. Lee's sense of patriotism?

There is nothing wrong with being black--or white! No one alive can help that America once had plantations that used slave labor. Guess what-- rich Africans today use African domestic labor. Do you think Oprah doesn't have maids in South Africa??? Rich Latins all over South America use Latin domestic labor ( often imported from other Latin countries); Asian slave labor flourishes right now; and in fact, the United States is the ONLY part of the world where any level of conscience exists! Today's U.S. television entertainment is imprinted with Latin, Asian, and black actors as being dominant. Jewish ownership in entertainment is extraordinarily sensitive to diversity.

Where does Mr. Lee acquire his audacity? He should look abroad for an argument-- perhaps to Russia-- where two powerful, violent, Nazi fascist movements are brewing and fueled by our investments in and dependence on Russian hydro-carbons and uranium nuclear fuel. He can find plenty of worthy opponents there.

Oh brother! Right away he brings up the "plantation" thing! I am so sick of him. He is probably one of the biggest racists I have ever seen. Bravo to Clint Eastwood for telling it like it is. Clint has more talent in his little finger than that idiot can ever hope of having in his whole body! Perhaps someone needs to "critique" his films to see if he has enough white people in them! Or better yet, maybe Lee should just concentrate on making a GOOD film. Period. One where it doesn't matter if the actors are white, black or purple! Try that FOR A CHANGE.

All the wars we fought where there were large numbers of blacks involved we've lost. If Eastwood wanted to film a loser he would have made a Nam movie. The few blacks in WW2 were kitchen aides or some type of supply jockey. Spike is just another angry black gay man acting up just to get some attention.

You tell him Clint! Lee needs to keep his fat mouth shut on what another director chooses to do with THEIR movies. I find it hilarious that Eastwood essentially told him to f*** off, bet he wasn't expecting that.

Clint is awesome, Lee is a bitter racist pig.

Spike Lee starts it and than whines like a bitch instead of doing what he's told and shutting his face. Spike Lee was raised by his grandmother. He acts like a female because his dad was in jail his whole life and he never had a positive male influence. If Spike had a dad growing up maybe he wouldn't be acting like such a girl right now.

I remember when Spike Lee was miffed that some Black people were dating Whites. He made a big deal about it back in the day. He didn't believe in it, and that he thought it was going to ruin his race. You can't help who people fall in love with!
