Spike Lee on years of racial injustice

"Black people have been dying for this country, and we still don't have our full rights." Spike Lee spoke with Brut about the George Floyd protests, police brutality, and the history of black G.I.s deployed to Vietnam, the subject of his new film "Da 5 Bloods."

    Your ancestors were NOT stolen.They were SOLD by their neighbors,who were also black, for over 1000 years.Slavery still exists in many areas of Africa,and even Spike Lee knows it.Hes nothing but a race baiter (also his movies are garbage)

    Good point Michael. Black slave lords sold their black citizens to white slave traders for money. Slavery still goes on today in Africa, Ivory Coast, Sierra Leon, in fact, Barak Obama helped turn Lybia into an Islamic slave trading state after the removal of Quadaffi. The problem with the African-American community is people like Spike Lee and AL Sharpton, race hustlers in it for the money and power, not reform. In fact, one of the largest plantation owners during the slave years was a black man named William Ellison. Look him up if you have the courage. Actually, I'll do it for you, it may be uncomfortable for you to do it..... William Ellison Jr., born April Ellison (c. April 1790 – December 5, 1861), was a U.S. cotton gin maker and blacksmith in South Carolina, and former black slave who achieved considerable success in business before the American Civil War. He owned 53 black slaves, making him the largest of the 171 black slaveholders in South Carolina.
