    Maybe this goes in the movie reviews section, but as a Katrina issue, I thought it was more appriate here.

    Spike Lee has made a four hour documentary about Hurricane Katrina. As can be expected, this documentary leans towards the conclusion that George W. Bush and Mike Brown are to blame for the whole thing. This one, however, leans so far that it just falls down, and the only people who could possibly believe the picture painted by this crap-u-mentary are the ones who did so before seeing the film. The film has numerous interviews with Nagin talking about how much he wanted to help, but couldn't, yet there's no mention of the hundreds of flooded busses. It talks about a 'lack of help' but never mentions the millions of Americans who opened their homes and their wallets. They, of course, talk day and night about the levies. In fact, the name of this abominations is "When the Levies Broke." It never mentions, however, the Louisianna politicians whose job it actually is to make sure the levies are up to code. This whole thing is an insult, but then again, I would expect nothing less from Spike Lee than a four hour rant about the evils of white people.

    The Title of this thread said it all. Spike Lee is an ASSHOLE. He is nothing more than a white supremicist in black clothing. if you changed black to white every time he says something they sound just alike.

    He is nothing more than an opportunistic rascist, bigot. He cries about the white man keeping the black man down because he knows the black community will eat that up and give him more of thier money to spew more hate. He preys off the illtericay in the black community to further himself. he is such a jerk........

    Of course this is just my opinion......


    Hey Spike :tongue1: :nine:

    Now...for a wee bit of reality on where the film is coming from. Pay special attention to the bold part.

    The faster they flood New Orleans the better. That will mean the last vestige of the Frogs will be gone. And we'll eliminate a major source of drug pushing, corruption, voo-doo and various evil. Good riddance.

    First off, shut up, troll.

    Second off, I'd like the crap to stay in the toilet rather than be washed over to my area. We had enough of that right after Katrina.

    I don't care if he officially attacks it from the class angle or the race angle, he's still attacking from the race angle. A documentary has pictures, too, and most of the ones I've seen from the film are of the poor black victims. And even if he really is doing it purely from a class angle, it's still a bunch of BS that doesn't stand up next to the facts.
