Requiem
Default Spike Lee has become a bitter, old black man

http://www.cnn.com/2014/02/26/us/new...entrification/

"Spike Lee grew up in Fort Greene in Brooklyn.

His parents still live there.

He still keeps an office there.

But it's not the same neighborhood he grew up in, and his feelings about newcomers now inhabiting once-blighted parts of America's most-populous city like Fort Greene slapped many people in the face after the famed director went into an expletive-laced rant during an African-American History Month lecture on Tuesday.

Spike Lee on gentrification

"I grew up here in New York. It's changed," Lee said at Brooklyn's Pratt Institute, an art, design, and architecture school. "And why does it take an influx of white New Yorkers in the South Bronx, in Harlem, in Bed Stuy, in Crown Heights for the facilities to get better? The garbage wasn't picked up every mother******* day when I was living in 165 Washington Park. ... The police weren't around. When you see white mothers pushing their babies in strollers, three o'clock in the morning on 125th Street, that must tell you something."

"But on gentrification Lee doesn’t have time for making sense or trying to, despite the nuance he so brilliantly displays in his films. His comments are instead a tantrum, and an ugly one. What’s really bothering Lee is that he doesn’t like seeing his old neighborhood full of white people."

"Nuances?" Spike Lee is technically a brilliant director but when it comes to subject matter he hits his audiences over the head with a sledgehammer. Subtlety is not his strong point.

From bitter white hating young man, to bitter white hating old man. All that has changed is his age. His hate for all that is white has been obvious for years.
