I would call him a racist but by Race Baiter Rule #45, it is forbidden to call a famous afro-american a racist.

I heard him this morning. Who gives a rats ass about his opinion.

Brooklyn is on the map. What did he think it was going to stay the same way since the 70's.

Brooklyn is evolving, just like everything else.

There's absolutely nothing "amazing" about his rant.

The same all broken record playing the same old tired song.

The fact that he had to say 'f*ck in almost every sentence of his rant tells you that the man lacks the vocabulary and intellect to understand that cities and their demographics change over time.

My Dominican coworker was telling me how excited he is to see all the new places to eat and shop popping up near his co-op. He said he is glad his neighborhood is becoming nice. So see, there is at least one person who is happy.

When is Spike Lee going to flip his lid about Harlem becoming white and crime being lowered?

Maybe he shouldn't of sold his Fort Greene brownstone for over a million driving up all the real estate property comparables. He should concentrate on making movies worth watching.
