^^^you know you can't slide without examples

because he's had white characters who were ignorant or bigoted in his films before he's making 'examples' of them?

so any director that's only featured black people as criminals or background floor sweepers/waiters/ whatever is making examples of them too? come on man...

spike's track record for handling white characters is alot better/more consistent than other famous directors handlings of black/'minority' characters. if spike lee's racist for that, than so is kevin smith (for example--see chasing amy, jay and silent bob strikes back, and zack and miri make a porno) for his black characters (i don't believe this i'm just making a comparison), and the tons of directors who never have any non white characters of note in their films. (richard linklater, paul thomas anderson--people who's work i adore but they probably don't give a fuck about diversity in their casting)

and yes, john woo's hong kong movies have the most beautiful choreographed gunplay i've ever seen in cinema.

the point of the film was to shove up Eastwoods ass...and i was semi serious...that shit didnt affect how i felt about the films craft.
