Spike Lee


In the New York Daily News, blogger, Rogue Academic, refuted Spike Lee’s comment comparing slavery to the holocaust,  saying that “The goal of the holocaust was death and destruction; the goal of American slavery was tobacco, indigo, rice, and cotton."


Rogue is correct.  The purpose of slavery was to keep the slave healthy and working.  The purpose of the Holocaust was to kill the Jews.  The Nazi camps had slaves too but they generally died from starvation.  


In the history of the south only about 2000 blacks were hung.  In Germany six million Jews were executed.  The figures don’t compute.  The difference is vast. The numbers turn quantative into qualitative.  The holocaust was genocide.  The forced labor of Africans was cruel business as unusual.  The holocaust was a whole different kettle of fish than American slavery. 


Spike Lee doesn’t understand millions of deaths.  He diminishes them.  He twists reality to his own devices. His imagination can’t stretch beyond the blacks.


Furthermore, the slaves killed in America were slaves imported from Africa.  The people murdered in the concentration camps were civilized educated people. Are ignorant people less important than urban, sophisticated folk?  Perhaps.


Spike can’t even follow logic.  He says, "Like Slaves Didn't Die? What Kind Of Academic Are You? And George Washington Didn't Own Slaves Too?" A few slaves dying bear no resemblance to Nazi Germany.  The SS killed more than that before breakfast.  And George Washington’s owning slaves bore no relationship to crematoriums. Spike is short in stature and short in logic.  The only thing big about him is his ego and his seats at the Knicks games. My mother used to call my dad, who is short, an angry little man. The same could be said about Spike.


Although Lee is a bigoted man who gives Jews no credit for their disasters, I have to give him credit for saying that “Quentin is infatuated with that word (niger)."  He is.  The lanky dork thinks that he is cool when he awkwardly imitates a black man.


 "What does he want to be made, an honorary black man?" Spike asked. "I want Quentin to know that all African-Americans do not think that word (n*****) is trendy or slick."


Nor is Tarantino trendy.  If I were a black man I would tell him to stop playing in my sand box. I would tell him that if he’s not cool enough to be white he’s not cool enough to be black.


Basically, the argument on racism is between two unattractive creeps—Tarantino and Spike Lee. I’m sure when they were young no girl would want to take them home to their mother for dinner. They should stick to the attractiveness of their cinematography and steer away from their moronic philosophical and political views.

One thing that never ceases to amaze me is the refusal of Black Americans to admit the sin of selling slaves weren't all committed by white slavers.

Like most people that have made poor life decisions or just refuse to work hard for something. They need a crutch to prop themselves up on. The really sad part is the people they lie about continue to allow them to do it. Here is a good example of how to handle the race baiters and such. Also, i am getting tired of supporting people that hate me. Maybe it is time We that work just say NO to the looter. Especially the ones that hate us. We condone it by allowing it, so We are as much to blame as the looters. Time to make a stand.

One thing that never ceases to amaze me is the refusal of Black Americans to admit the sin of selling slaves weren't all committed by white slavers. Tribal chiefs captured Africans from different tribes to sell to the slave traders. The ones who weren't sold became slaves to their conquerers. Slavery wasn't anything new. It also amazes me when I am blamed for what a few whites did. Nobody in my family ever owned a slave. In fact, my ancestors were serfs, which means slaves, in Europe.

@Vern the media does a great job of making sure the American people Do Not see anything that might be construed as negative about Obama...

What is the worse and saddest part is that the American People have been and do let it happen.

I pray everyday that our country will wake up before it is too late.

No, it didn't entirely, but during my life, it certainly was abated as the economy grew and people were busy enjoying a relatively good life.

And, none of this has to do with the resurrected racial divides that Obama and his ilk have begun.

I am not so sure that it ever went away.

Not one comment has suggested "educated" people are "worth  more" than "uneducated" people!  Making statements which cannot be proven like "people in concentration camps being educated" is nonsense.  There were Eygptian slaves, there are currently Saudi slaves, so slavery (of which the concentration camps are not an example) seems to be a condition of a fallen humanity.  And, none of this has to do with the resurrected racial divides that Obama and his ilk have begun.

Oh I am aware and I am also aware that muslims are the biggest traders. It also happens to be that he was raised a muslim and pronounces all the islamic words with a very good accent and with pride. Oh wait, do we have a follower of the pedophile prophet in the White House doing the biding of Satan, oops I mean allah.

@ Thomas Angle:

I'm sure you are aware that Barack Hussein Obama’s Family Were African Slave Traders; his Mama’...

Many good articles...this'll get you started.

Slavery WAS simply human machinery (I'm not trying to be a bigot or racist, I'm just trying to point out that the Industrial Revolution didn't happen until we ended slavery and freed all humans to think and grow to their own potential).  Slaves were kept to work the farms.  When industrialized farming came into existence, slavery was no longer necessary.  In fact, I'll go so far as to say that the Civil War was fought unnecessarily because mechanized farming was well on its way by 1860.
