We’ve already seen the parade of Black racists and bigots (Al Sharpton, Sheila Jackson Lee, etc.) call for Donald Sterling’s public beheading. And, now, the latest one–and one of the most egregious–is having his turn.
At today’s press conference given by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, calling for the ban, fining, and effective ouster of LA Clippers owner, Donald Sterling, there was an interesting attendee. Spike Lee, notorious for his anti-White and anti-Semitic comments and movies and his fan-worship of racist Louis Farrakhan, was sitting in the audience, right in the front row, where he was welcomed and embraced by the NBA brass and the media.
But Spike Lee ought to look in the mirror when it comes to racism. From my 2002 column, “Racist Spike Lee: Kmart’s Bankrupt Messenger“:
Lee’s race-hustling films are vile, portraying Whites and Jews in the worst light possible and showing them as human embodiments of the most outrageous stereotypes. There is his 1989 “breakthrough” flick, “Do the Right Thing,” in which–predictably–Whites, especially Italians, are evil, unsympathetic characters, while Blacks are the downtrodden, oppressed victims. There are last year’s “Bamboozled” and 1990?s “Mo’ Better Blues” in which Jews are evil, unsympathetic, racist stereotypes. Ditto for 1996?s “Get on the Bus,” which celebrates Lee’s hero, racist loon Louis Farrakhan and his Million–or is that 300,000–Man March. A Jewish busdriver, who refuses to continue to drive because of Farrakhan’s blatant anti-Semitism, is the movie’s villain for doing so. And don’t forget “Malcolm X” (1992), which justifies the Black Islamic leader’s hatred of Whites and Jews.
About the only Lee film not political is his big 1999 dud, “Summer of Sam.” But even that is about Lee’s favorite kind of serial killer, a Jewish one. And that film’s portrayal of Italians and other Whites is completely bigoted. When his “4 Little Girls” documentary–about White racists bombing a Black church in 1963–lost out to “The Long Way Home” for an Academy Award, Lee whined that it was a “Holocaust movie” and accused the Academy of failing to give Blacks due recognition. In 1998, Lee complained to AP that Michael Jackson had to change blatantly anti-Semitic lyrics to a song and apologize to Jews. He “was crucified!” Lee snorted. . . .
On the rare occasion when he was called out for racism by one [movie] critic, he [Lee] called him an “a-hole” and planned to begin his next movie inviting critics to “kiss [his] black a–.”
Yup, yet another example of how racism by White people in private conversations isn’t tolerated, but public racism and Jew-hating bigotry by prominent Blacks is A-OK! So okay that the Black bigots and racists come to press conferences to press those in power to stick it to the White racists as much as possible. Now, that’s chutzpah.
But, hey, when Black racists are not just tolerated, but celebrated, they develop a mansion full of chutzpah.
Lee told reporters that Sterling has a slave owner’s mentality, which is interesting since he pays his “slaves” gazillions of dollars. But, if that’s the case, what do you call Spike Lee’s anti-Semitic mentality–a Gestapo mentality?
Um, that’s kinda the case.
So, why was Spike Lee tolerated and interviewed at today’s NBA press conference?
Because if you are a hypocritical racist Black, you can get away with almost anything. But if you are a hypocritical racist White like Donald Sterling, good luck with that.
