  1. "What he says the first time, is the truth that's what's in his heart," so true

  2. Americans are full of drama. Many think Trump is like Hitler, etchnic cleansing. This presidency is worst in media than the Obama one. Where republicans were freaking out because the world was going to end. Do people in America only vote on feelings and outrages stereotypes or do they also do it on policy?
    Don't get me wrong I dispise Trump his administration but I also do with the same respect towards American Democrats. Drama drama and not enough political discussion. American Democrats have become a joke. Especially with all the ridiculous demonstrations. I am by American standards left wing, but I guarantee with this behavior Trump will win again. The answer to far right is not far left. This show has gone so far left it becomes a joke on its own.

  3. Maybe someone send him " The prince " then. To dig Machiavelli. Maybe, he did not read it yet.

  4. I saw this movie yesterday in Auckland, New Zealand at a 3.15pm session at my local single theatre cinema. Mostly older white people, but a surprising amount of them.
    The acting from the main players was phenomenal, it was funny as hell, the soundtrack gets into your bones and the last bit broke my heart. Absolute silence by then. Good luck America but thanks for something good.

  5. Don't watch this movie….. until he talks about the 200 grand he recieved from the NYPD….. revealed on n his taxes what's that about…… plus this movie is an apologist movie but he's in the media criticizing em agent

  6. i see Conservatives always get hardcore pissed off about people burning the american flag… but iv seen these small nazi protests burn the american flag and wave a nazi flag. the people who are supporting the president… waving a nazi flag over our own. wtf.

  7. Everyone should hate niggers ! Everyone should hate KKK racist bastards! Everyone should like good ppl !

  8. Spike Lee is a very great artist. This film, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, won the Grand Prix of the Palmes D'Or 2018, (or the French film equivalent of an Oscar for best picture), and is considered the greatest film industry honor in the world.

  9. The best thing i think we need to do is to creat a multicultural party the democrats are not better than the Republican they just not as vocal as they are. They are the same party with the same ideology, same ideas and same views for america. Donald Trump is the product of the real america he is just more open about it than the Clintons and the rest of them. Believe me I prefer an open racist 1000 Times over an hidden one. This is America nothing as changed for the black since the last 60 years they are just polished, beautify and masked we are still seating in the back of the bus.

  10. Undercover brotha, no literally he is under some white sheets..

  11. I'm glad that this one's good. In all honesty, Spike Lee really has slipped in quality for a while now. But from the sounds of it, this is definitely back to his best form. I'll have to check it out.

  12. Spike Lee has always been a voice and spoke the truth to the Black community whether we wanted to hear it or not. Thank you for your continued service to your people.

  13. My wife an I got accosted by white kids in a mudding truck right after the film had ended. The told us "I am going to kill you niggers!" (The one behind the wheel) and the passenger said looking at my wife "And our dicks are bigger!". I guided my wife back into the movie theater and I attempted to get their plates as it went over the "island" and headed towards me. Thankfully they sped away. Shout out city of greensboro detective D.J. Benotti for being present on dealing with the situation.

  14. It's always the rich black people complaining about racism everyday, like racism ever stop them from achieving their goals…. To my fellow black people please don't listen to these idiots…
