Spike on Condi
Spike Lee doesn’t hold back, huh?
Firebrand director Spike Lee has found an unlikely new target for his latest spray: the secretary of state. Says Lee: “I dislike Condoleezza Rice more than [President] Bush. The thing about it is that she’s gotten a free ride from black people.”
…”People say, ‘She’s so successful’ and ‘Look at her position as a black woman.’ She is a black woman who grew up in Birmingham, Ala., and said that she never experienced a day of racism in her life,” Lee tells the April issue of Stuff magazine.
“Condi, stop smoking that crack!”
“I know you love your Ferragamo shoes, but come on. While people were drowning in New Orleans, she was going up and down Madison Ave. buying Ferragamo shoes. Then she went to see ‘Spamalot.'”
