Spike Lee wants his film ‘BlacKkKlansman’ to motivate voters to stop Pres. Trump from winning a second term.
Director Spike Lee wants his new film he directed along with Jordan Peele ‘Get Out‘ to serve as more than just entertainment.
Lee wants his film to have civic influence in making sure Pres. Trump isn’t re-elected. He sat down with CNN where he said, “I hope that (viewers would) be motivated to register to vote. The midterms are coming up, then this guy in the White House is going to run again, and what we’re going through is demonstrated, I think, is full evidence (of) what happens when you don’t vote when you don’t take part in the process.”
“I know a lot of people who say, ‘F politics, they’re all crooks, whatever.’ But to me, that says, ‘defeatist attitude,’” he said, “and we just have to be smarter on who we vote.”
Lee’s film credits over three decades include other movies that have tackled US race relations — “Do the Right Thing,” “Malcolm X,” “Jungle Fever,” “Bamboozled.” He said he believes racism is just as prevalent in 2018 as it was when he started making movies — and only getting worse.
“The rise of (racism) right here in the United States, specifically, is direct reaction to eight years of President Barack Obama,” Lee told CNN. “It’s two step forward, one step back … The reason why I feel that race is still a big discussion in this country (is) because we’ve never really honestly dealt with slavery.
“Once we start having an honest discussion on slavery, then we can move forward,” he said. “We’ve never really had an honest discussion about the foundation of this country. I know people might not like this, but this is the truth.
‘BlacKkKlansman’ opens in theaters on Friday. It’s a true story about Ron Stallworth, the first African-American detective in the Colorado Springs police force in the 1970s. Stallworth managed to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan and bring them down.
If you don’t like Trump and have no solid reasons behind it, please stop looking stupid. For example, why do you hate Trump? He’s racist. Why is he racist? Because you can tell. He doesn’t care about black people. Do you have an example………crickets.
There are dumb people on both sides. All I am saying is do research and have facts so you can be prepared to expose ignorance before you show your own.
Trump wasn’t racist until two years ago. All of Hollywood and the media are clowns. They are pissed he won on a platform criticizing the media. If these liars didn’t have a “racist” angle, then more blacks would vote Trump because most black Americans agree with his values.
I won’t be going to view Spike’s new movie, will you?
