Clint Eastwood vs. Spike Lee

The racial tension is sparking up lately just as we head into mid-June. Spike Lee is criticizing Dirty Harry Clint Eastwood for not casting any blacks in his new movie. Eastwood who is know for saying things like “go ahead punk, make my day” told Spike Lee to shut his face and responded with a good reason for not casting any African-Americans in two World War II movies Eastwood filmed. His response said that the raising of the flag at Iwo Jima did not involve black soldiers.

Spike Lee calling Clint Eastwood an “angry old man” sounds pretty discriminatory to me. Who is really discriminating here? I am sure its just one of those fun publicity stunts from Spike Lee but who knows. I guess everyone will take sides against Eastwood citing this and saying he was for Hillary instead of Obama saying he is a racist.
