I've found that people either love him or hate him. Which one are you?

I didn't even realize that they did a remake here in the states

I just watched the original subtitled one on Vudu the other day

it was really fun

I've been learning a lot about Korea lately....it is a very interesting
place. Koreans are SUPER racist! I like that about the asian cultures.
they hate others with no shame.

their food is great too.

their political history is insane....look at what they have accomplished
as a country in the last 40 years alone.

I think you will find that most countries who have a tiny to super slim minority populations, are pretty racist for US standards.

Not many places are melting pots like the US and people's interactions are limited.

A lot of Americans don't realize that 23&me is not a thing outside of the US for a reason.
In most countries people already know their genetic structure with certainty.


I came across a Mexican fast food restaurant while in Euroland recently and the use of the stereotypes in their advertising graphics were pretty racist. They don't know any better like we do. USA USA USA!

Same with the Chinese restaurants in Mexico featuring a figure with crooked teeth, slanted eyes and round glasses with a rice hat.

But hey there's no Chinese people around to see it. That's why it exists.

Link to the claim or STFU.

You are making shit up.

I call racists racist.

I just did above.

I just understand nuance.

If there was a large Chinese population in Mexico somebody would tell restaurant owners their advertising is racially insensitive.

If after that, they don't take it down, they would be real asshole racists like some Americans.

You throw bombs at everyone, so don't try to come across as an even tempered arbiter of fairness.

Riiight, you forgot the part where you singled out three black people out of the entire Democratic party as a sole reason for never being able to become a Democrat.

And 2/3 of these black people are not even in the party or in power, so yeah.

And you had a bunch of vile shit to say about immigrants and Mexicans too.

What do you call that? Learn me.


Also, unless you directly harassed these three black people, because they're black (not because of the "disagreement"), then and only then you would be in trouble under the hate speech law.

In other words you can continue to have bigoted opinions without the consequences if you leave people alone.

How hard is it to do that? poke

I love it when you people claim that you can get arrested for a disagreement and that a verbal slip can put you in jail. roflmao

There was nothing else to say.

Everyone here is familiar with your antics and with that in mind you just made his point for him.

Riiight, you forgot the part where you singled out three black people out of the entire Democratic party as a sole reason for never being able to become a Democrat. I called out three democrats who called for the continuation of the L.A. Riots. Skin color has nothing to do with it. I voted for a black man for president twice, because I believe in his platform. Skin color had nothing to do with it. You are white, and I think that you are one of the most disagreeable posters here. In fact, you GromsDad and Leverite, are I assume all white, and I'd be fine if you three went away.

And 2/3 of these black people are not even in the party or in power, so yeah.

And you had a bunch of vile shit to say about immigrants and Mexicans too.]More bullshit. My hopefully some day daughter in law is a Latina, and I love her as much as my son. My wife is an immigrant, and I sponsored her all the way through from illegal to citizen. Go away and don't post another thing here until you can link to me saying 1 vile thing about someone because they are Mexican

What do you call that? Learn me.

Spike was great in those Nike commercials with that guy Mike.


What's the difference between conservatives and liberals?

Conservatives get angry when you lie to them. Liberals get angry when you tell
them the truth.

I think he's made way more great films than stinkers. I even like the stinkers because, even when they're bad, there's something interesting or weird in the movie.

Do the Right Thing will always be #1 Spike Lee film but Bamboozled was the second most memorable one.

25th Hour is his most overlooked film.

Naturalle Hernandez for the win! facelick



No scene in a film ever made me bawling like the scene when Brian Cox is driving Norton off to prison and offers him an alternative scenario.

And then there's this monologue that I'm sure many here will love for all the wrong reasons...
