"spike lee" Discussed on The Bone 102.5

"I mean this was found. I don't think, uh, you take it on the mask or whatever the case may be at that point time. What harm anybody But the people that was right next to her. I wasn't close enough. That was the other thing, too. And some of the footage that was taken when in the heat of the moment, they kept telling her to put her mask on. And she was. You know, she didn't seem to be listening, so I don't know. How much that had to do with her getting kicked out, but it's just very interesting that you're that close and there have been people. The Jack Nicholson's Spike Lee's Who Thrive on getting in the mix like you can't get in the mix and any other sport. But to think that is a fan. You're that close and you can get into it with the likes of LeBron is pretty insane. You've seen Reggie Miller going at Spike Lee. Oh, yes, Pacers when he holds his hands like Yeah. Is it OK or not OK for the players to crack back when they're being taunted. Because that that's what it boils down to. We may never know what was actually said. But some some publications are reporting today that LeBron James called him or said to him Ciccio steroid ass down to the old man because he's I think he's in the sixties. And if you want to believe her She's 25. If you want to believe her, if you want to believe her 7275791 or 25, Okay or not Okay, if a player is being taunted by courtside ticket holders or in any other sport, people sitting real close to the stands or the action. Is it okay for them to crack back? Is it okay that LeBron said Ciccio Steroid asked down. It's funny. Drew gotta live alone. Who are you? Hey, what time is Randy? Hi, Randy. What's up? Not too much. My head first was gonna give you have some love on the gold star called her never called rare steaks for my life. Awesome. Thank you, man. Appreciate you breaking your cherry a wide open with us. It's called a milk dud when it's a man. I appreciate you guys do me a great job Every day. I'm a police officer and I listen, you guys all day. I'm to six. I got the seven Thanks that last hours alongside of my ship because you guys aren't on, man. Thanks. We'll stay an extra hour. Just shift Go. Bye. Thank you for what you do. I'm I presume. And you guys do a great job. And thanks for everything, guys. John Doe. You got support us. We, um I think it's all right for LeBron Macleod Back, Man. I got clap back light by Lee Westwood at the 100 Classic. One time he missed like that 3 ft, But he's playing paired with Tiger Woods. I mean, my brother standing by the road. He walks by if they be nice, but man And he Stop selection for you, Mother Ever Drop the F bomb on me? He should have had you in the head with this lob wedge. Yeah, you did like they got the guy probably lost $50,000 on that. But he doesn't need you Sit there reminding me, shouldn't you and that with the lob wedge I know, But it was the first hole on a Thursday and I was rooting for tiger and they repaired together. So I was gonna tigers from love and try to get Lee Westwood a little flustered. That's not giving Tiger love that is breaking etiquette on the golf course. I mean, then again, he had plenty of time to recover from it. And he's an officer of the law. If he would have raged out of him, he could have arrested him. Hey, thanks, man. Randy Appreciate the call and stay safe out there, will you? I'm after you said you guys were in great job. Keep up the great work, man. Thanks, brother 7275791025. So I'm trying to see if there's a video that accompanies what I'm reading Right now. It doesn't seem like it. TMZ reporting Julianna Carlos is now publicly apologizing for screaming, yelling and cussing and LeBron James and saying she takes full responsibility for crossing the line. To say things escalated quickly. Ushers game is an understatement, and I want to apologize for losing my cool and removing my mask. In the heat of the moment. My husband is a huge sports fan. We're passionate people. She's trying to get her husband not to lose his gig. Whatever Trust funder hedge hedge fund he works for and let's be real sports wouldn't be sports without trash talking, get out, But she's That's true. That is, that is true. I mean, it's I don't know where the line is. And if it wasn't good enough for LeBron to think they should be kicked out, then he probably can handle it. He was baby face, and he definitely thought they should take this bitch out. You gotta live in love. Who are you? Jason, What's up, Jason? Hi. Man. It's okay. It's absolutely okay. I think athletes and fans need to trashed on especially now. Why now? Why especially now? Guns. There hasn't been any fans and statement that is true anymore. I'll make it for years where the trash talk. That's where we've forgotten how to be fan. So when we get back in, Of course, we're going to trash talk, and they should talk trash right back, huh? Absolutely. And I think that Jon Gruden is better than Bruce Arians. Yeah, Okay. Yeah, Clearly killing and with the Rangers. Do you have a live alone? Who are you? I've been in here that guy. Happy New Year title. I love Jon Gruden. That wasn't this on Jon Gruden Overall. Just this moment, Terrians rules interesting angle. You gotta live alone. Hey, Steve. I think it's okay but for a different reason more the reason I missed Metta World peace. I think you need to keep the crowd and check everybody. You know what? You're right.

Your Friendly Black Sidekick

"Pay nba parker. I'm a producer here at the cut. But before this humble brag i was a film professor. And i obsessed about every minute beautiful and infuriating thing in film and television to be fair. I still do so. I was recently watching. The netflix. miniseries the queen's gambit because as a former chess club kid. I expected it to be my jam. So i was overjoyed and then befuddled to see the character. Joe lean the protagonists childhood. Bff from the orphanage and black girl. Savior extraordinaire whose entire purpose is to be labeled as difficult while sacrificing huge parts of herself so that the porcelain white girl can play chess and it felt all too familiar to me. It reminded me of this film. I loved as a kid called a little princess dealer. Decent thought i would die till i heard you talk about the magic. I grew up faithfully watching the one thousand nine hundred five version of a little princess by alphonso croissant about a rich orphaned white girl who ends up being a servant all girls school and spencer evenings in the attic with the orphan servant. A little black girl who shares in her daydreams in fantasies but unlike the queen's gambit for this cold where he comes from in a little princess both girls free themselves together and truly become princesses in lace and curls allow to grow up sisters. But still there is this disconnect. The black girls still feels like the friend on the sidelines. Even if she's spunky and nothing awful or bad happens to her. This was the case with a lot of the movies. I grew up on. They all had interruptions of the sweet black sidekick there was also lavender the best friend matilda. It's much better than being out there. And jesse in the babysitters club really an idea might be brilliant. And the most classic example for black kids of the ninety s was a grown man. Lavar burton as star trek. The next generation sweet brainy sidekick jordi la forge computer as we increased our power levels. Was there any counterreaction. Affirmative him but listen. I'm not here to complain. I'm just sort of navigating my way. Through this trope. It is not entirely a bad thing at all as a brainy spunky little black kid i loved these characters. I mean. I needed them. One of the first things. I noticed about the next generation is that they have shorty fords. I remember as a little girl. I had like a brown suede hip band. And i used to put it over my eyes. So i could be jordan forge. George soros outspoken introverted. He makes amazing friends. Went the android on this. And i was like. This guy is still gave the nerve babies though cool that is none other than the actress. Zelda harris. When she was ten years old she played one of these classic sidekick characters jesse the only black babysitter in the baby sitters club. I did not grow up reading the baby sitters club books. I read every single one of those books. Jesse was a dancer who always related to her kids. She learned sign language for one of the kids. She babysat and taught dance. Moves and the film adaptation of the baby sitters club was totally formative for me growing up. Zelda definitely plays the sidekick the supporting role to a host of white girls but she also stole scenes left and right dropping like flies. She kinda had to that was what she was given to work with. Not just in the sitters club but in every role she dishes for. I would be bassey token friend but not necessarily get to read for the lead over and over again. Zelda would hit this wall. She knew her potential by casting directors saw her as the bouncy token friend it starts to wear on you as a kid because you have the power nation. You're working in an industry that can make anything happen. You got competence muppets. Cgi and all this stuff going on who still getting very consistent. Message that you're here to support and so okay Yeah the cameras going to be. Set up right here. You're gonna stand on the side. I'm not sure if you're gonna be in this shot. Whoa having mechanic realization was intense. This realization was extra intense for zelda. Because she knew it didn't have to be this way. She started her acting career in the leading role. Her very first film was spike. Lee's crooked where she starred as troy maybe other people with mommy and scream and yell at you can't do. It wasn't all inclusive set with women and people of color where she had the starring role in black and brown film.

Here's Tom, with a pick from the festival somewhere are ready. The greatness of America is the right toe protest far right? Day. Martin Luther King Jr is widely regarded as a hero. But the new documentary MLK. FBI returns us to the time when J. Edgar Hoover treated him as an enemy historian Beverly Gauge, explains the FBI Woz Most alarmed about King because of his success. And they were particularly concerned that he was this powerful, charismatic figure who had the ability to mobilize people. King's biographer, David Garrow, wrote a book about the FBI's relentless surveillance campaign. Their agents recorded King's extramarital affairs and tried to smear his reputation. The FBI is frustrated that even though they've successfully caught King In 15 or more hotel rooms, and they've distributed this behind the scenes to church leaders to reporters. Nothing's publicly happened now, as black lives matter. Activists face new government pressure Film makes us wonder how much the FBI has changed. The bureau's former director, James Comey, remains dismayed about Hoover's treatment of King. You know this about humans? What we're best at is convincing ourselves of our own righteousness. I think this entire episode represents the darkest part of the bureau's history. Filmmaker Sam Pollard previously was a director on eyes on the prize and a collaborator with Spike Lee. He's being honored at the document. I see Festival with a lifetime achievement award. MLK. FBI is now streaming on the dock NYC website For more information is a w n y c dot or g'kar flash docks.

David Byrne on Turning 'American Utopia' Into a Book

"David byrne joins us now. He is of course the musician. The filmmaker visual artist and here primarily as an author of a new book. American utopia. he wrote it. And it's illustrated together with myra common david thank you so much for being here. Thank you this is obviously tied to a larger project began as a concert. Tour than a broadway show now. A film directed by spike lee and simultaneously a book. Can you talk to us a little bit for those who aren't familiar with american utopia which i feel like. I don't know who those people are at this point. But tell us about how you conceived of the project and the various forms in which it's appeared and was it all like known from the beginning that would be in these multiple formats going backwards. No it was not conceived from the beginning that would be all these multiple formats. I didn't imagine. In the beginning. That it would end up on broadway that that would be filmed serve one thing leads into another okay so in the beginning i imagined wanted to see if i could do a show where all the band members were mobile taught. The technology might have arrived where that would be possible. And it also required that i would have a sufficient budget because that would mean i would have to turn say drummer into six different players. All playing drum and percussion instruments like a drumline or a samba. School of something. Like got and i realized okay. That's more personnel. Can afford that a could. I went ahead with this. Which opened up opportunities for staging and choreography and movement and then lighting and everything else just follow. Once one thing was kinda complicated or decided then door would open. And you go okay. That means it then we can do this. And now i can do this except etcetera so some point during the tour. I kind of got wind that broadway producers had seen the show and thought probably i'm going to guess in response to the success of bruce springsteen's show people thought. Oh this can go to broadway. This could go to broadway in broadway. Audiences are ready for this kind of thing now. This is a thing that can be done very very different than bruce springsteen's show. But i think the idea was that whatever popular music contemporary music could work on broadway thing just didn't have to be all broadway music. I wrote additional things for the broadway version extended it reshaped it unused broadway. Audience would kind of come with different sets of expectations but also kind of opportunity for me to talk more to kind of shape the show in a different way kind of address things that you may not addressing a concert tour where people basically just wanna dance and have a lot of fun. The director alex timbers was helping out and he said david you know you could maybe have a a drop curtain here and that in a certain kind of way when the audience is coming in and staring at the stage and the curtain is down in some ways you can have an image that sort of prepares them and in a little bit in a way for what's coming and tear. Myra coleman yes and alex showed me kind of an old graphic. Did he probably got off the internet. That was sort of like the fifty states and what each state is known for and this may be done like in the forties or fifties or something like that. It's a school thing. What were your favorite states. Because you're laughing. I'm laughing laughing because you know you can imagine the some corn and some of them mining or of them are cattle. Oh yes and so. It was also folklore folklore from each state. So the be paul bunyan or casey jones. John henry all these american kind of bits and legends were in there. And i thought okay in wanna do that exactly but i thought that's a nice direction. Thank you alex. So i went to myra who i'd worked with before many many many years ago and said would you be interested in doing drawings and paintings for this curtain.

Until you've shape, the thing that says what you want to say, David Burns American Utopia Spike, Lee's grand and glorious filmed record of the hit Broadway show of the same name coming to HBO October. Seventeenth is art that has been built a work of great joy inexpressive Nece Tower of song with room for everybody the music some numbers drawn from burns twenty eighteen album American utopia others from. His body of work with talking heads and one a cover of Janelle. Monet's two thousand, fifteen protests anthem hell you tom bowed feels fresh and familiar at once inclusive but also mildly explosive there's an urgency to it as if burn and his troupe of eleven, musicians and dancers were staking ground in a battle we shouldn't even have to fight the idea is that to survive to live in any meaningful way, we must stay connected. It's a principal so glaringly simple at its radical. Burn is an admittedly weird ambassador for the idea of connection. He isn't what you'd call a naturally warm presence at least not in Earth terms even at age sixty eight, he's still like an. Learning. The rules of the planet his awkwardness is his brand but his desire to connect is robust and had vitalize is everything that happens onstage during American Utopia. no-one initial has one job. The musicians are also dancers and singers. Their instruments are strapped to their bodies untethered to any bulky sound equipment, which leaves them free to move and dance around the stage in a series of elegantly orchestrated numbers with burn off at the center though sometimes lurking at the edges like living fringe of the proceedings, the choreography is by dance veteran antibeach Parson all the performers including burn where identical lunar grey suits and all are barefoot. The stage is bordered on three sides by a Shimmery chainlink curtain the grand scheme is. Simple yet never chilly. This is a setting a world where certain essential problems have been worked out creating the space and freedom to play, and so even the songs every longtime burn or talking heads Fan knows well, like this must be the place naive melody a moonlit cottage in ballad form or the Wrigley waggling noodle dance. Slippery people take on new shapes and new life between numbers burn addresses the audience directly spinning amusing tales about where these songs came from. He wrote is Zimba with its lyrics by German Dada poet. Hugo. Ball to respond to a challenge thrown down by his friend and collaborator Brian Eno or us to fulfil our civic responsibilities. He uses lighting trick to show how badly the citizenry is represented when only twenty percent of the population votes and as a prelude to the shows Shiver Inducing version of hell you tom about he explains that he asked Monet's permission before venturing to cover the Song Burns band here. Is racially mixed, but he himself is very, very white. No wonder he approached with caution but he and his band present the song and invocation written in two thousand fifteen for all of us to remember the names of murdered black citizens among them Eric Garner Trayvon. Martin and Amatil. With the synthesis of respect and bristling anger it demands. This number also represents one of the few times league cuts away from this show to flash larger than life portraits at the. Victims, often held by a family member on the screen. It's an act of boldness that works as for burn. He is as ever a wildly and captivating showman though his hair is now snowcap wide his dance moves in changed over the years he's still favors angular Turkey jerky movements like the folding and unfolding of corporate tres ruler, which are often mimicked to grand effect by the dancers around him. But as dazzling as he is, you can take your eyes off him.

Theater, and is said to return to Broadway. Next September and we see it for what it is. This is a group of largely white middle aged people who came of age listening to talking heads as a bunch. They're far less diverse than the performers we've been watching onstage a you could argue that with American utopia burn is preaching to the choir that this is all just an exercise in self congratulatory white liberalism but that would be missing the point in one of his Inbetween Song riffs burn muses that there are lots of interesting things to look at in the world there are bicycles which he famously likes. Very Much Lee even shows him riding away from the show on one and beautiful sunsets and even a bag of potato chips can be visually beguiling but somehow we always comeback to human faces looking at people burn says that's the best American Utopia is about facing the person in front of you or next to you or standing behind you and doing the work of seeing to truly see a person is a kind of song and a world filled with those songs is the ideal to get started burning his troop have hummed a few bars.

It's so spooky especially because those means character stormin norm is one of in Easy Company soldier of Fortune and the Vietnam War who Basically is the voice of reason from beyond the for all of this company base that like includes Isaiah with lock junior Delroy Lindo. etcetera etcetera etcetera. But anyway, he's just kind of like speaking from beyond the grave about how These people as black men are to conduct themselves. So that's just like very it's a lot to deal with like if you watch it again. Not, just as a spike Lee joint that came out during quarantine but like as a posthumous bozeman foam. Yeah and he walks to that movie with the Halo basically giving these these milestones about black pride and dignity and America and civil rights. And God is that there is no spookier performance. One could have either final performance before passing away age forty forty-three. Like totally undisclosed cancer

"You can't walk away and come back to watch the show right and another show that i i've been asking you to watch. Which is watchmen. Yes wish i. I started again the other night. That's why i asked you is that is that donald Is that don. Johnson is it. Don johnson looks phenomena. He looks phenomenal. You didn't finish the first episode. Though i it's okay tell me i don't because i don't want to say any. I finished it a while ago when it started. You've gotta watch. And i have talked it over. So that's what. I started it again the other night and i saw two actors i recognized and then don johnson came on the screen and and king. But regina hadn't seen yet. But i've seen the episode so inertia okay but i hadn't gotten to that yet again getting back to the the rhetoric of of imdb and other websites okay. There's so much hate. What we on watchmen people. Because you know the term woke you know the term woke which means you are aware of of prejudice mostly for racism. You are aware of injustice. That's what they call a woke w okay so people are calling it. A woke series like this series is just a walk. Don't watch it. It's all about like being aware of racism. Like fuck that shit you know. This is watchmen. They destroyed it. And then you get real people who who are. Who read watchmen okay. And said if you ever really read. The watchmen. comic watchmen comic has always been about this. You know about injustice about power corrupting about people trying to stay in control about down people pushing other people down. Who's watching the watchmen. Who are the watchman who in the original watchmen. Richard nixon president for four terms. Isn't that the the movie. The movie itself which is based on you know alan moore and david gibbons comic which came out in like the eighties eighty one. I think it was ok. Okay but this. Reimagining of a sequel. To watchmen watchmen series is. Because you actually have you need the first characters that are still from the book own now like in the future. Do you need you have. Do you need the movie to see the series. You should know you should know. The history of watchmen if even better would be to know the history of the comic book word for word because not word for word. Because when i'm saying that zacks versions act snyder. His version of watchmen was his interpretation of watchmen his version. What he decided to make the story and he's pretty much nailed it. He changed some things. He's tweak some things to change it. So we'll be more relatable on the screen He didn't drop a gigantic a alien on new york Which is kind of what they did in the comic book. So outlandish itself you know like a joke on on superheroes and comic books in general so In in watchmen the tv series when they reflect on the event that took place in the city they actually reflect on the octopus that fell. So it's you have to know that. At the end of watchmen the speaking about. Yeah and the movie. You didn't see it but this is yeah. So at the end of watchmen the movie. You didn't you didn't see it. what do you mean. I'm just trying to get you that. The end of ozzy mandy at the end of the movie. You saw the movie. I saw the movie at the end of the movie as he mandy uses dr manhattan's power to create almost an atomic explosion. Right in manhattan. That explosion kills so many people that the whole world fears doctor manhattan and it causes the world to come together as one. And you know kind of like solidarity ozzy mandy asus idea of killing a group of people so that the world could come together and stop. Fighting was his idea Turning the world against doctor manhattan. The only true living being that could destroy the earth wanted to because it sounds so similar to the batman superman batman vs batman. V superman idea. Okay swain against this concept but in but what they do on. Tv is damon lindelof. Lost genius the guy. Who did the leftover i mean. This guy has ideas and the way he presents. Them is so brilliant. he's a gene. Yeah you know. Assuming this writer. Every episode of the tv series on. Hbo of watchmen is like a gripping movie. That once you start to really see what's going on and you even rewatching watching episode one becomes another movie for you and what he does is though he he talks about the tulsa. What happens in what happened in taller. Saying yeah he uses that as the opening. That's is that watching. And the openness you're watching the opening tulsa massacre from one thousand nine hundred ninety s and know. Call it black wall street and the people in oklahoma hated to see the black people starting to get things going for themselves out so they killed them. That's down their businesses. So this event that took place and they use it in the story and you know. What's incredible is that you have. All of the characters from watchmen in the story except for russia back. 'cause he's dead member manhattan. Kills him at the end zone. I remember right because ozzy mantius says to him. What i did is going to bring the world together and russia says. I'm telling the world what you did. And dr manhattan knows that if he tells the world what he did even though doctor manhattan has been criminalised by the act. He will ruin what he did. It make you make it all wasted time. All those will be for nothing. He kills them. Doctor manhattan just blows them up guys. I've gonna watch exactly. You should watch it before you watch the series because it's a nice lead up maury because you have this group of people that worship rohrschack. I saw the rauch acts does. Is that what that is incredible. I mean what is that. Is it the silver well. No that's what the focus is. That's tim blake nelson place looking. I love him but he pulls that. What is that silver thing. He pulls over the next phase of rohrschack the next phase of hero which of the cops all about the police department to okay and the police department coming under fire and the police department step in overstepping bounds or not overstepping bounds. It is brilliant. It's a reflection of what just took place in our world before it ever took place which is incredible so i keep pushing like sometimes at.

"He did and he took that right and did he did. He made some beautiful. He made some beautiful speeches. You're even called out the uk for racism. He did because it's kind of economy started to get a little bit more serious once was in he. One of nafta evolving offing jokes about a little on. My fellow could not what. I sort of acting again going to audition a final callback and i think many people know what that's like always be like two other guys that i was up against and we'd always lose to this one kid. No actor would ever say his name because it was too much but every casting director would whispering seeing harto. Who is this leonardo. You've been in this for over twenty five years to me and so many people. I think you very very much christian khusein you commit to your rolls aways that i can only dream of. I just never took about performance. It's infuriating and. I wish she would cry. One time just to get a little bit more. Serious serious yeah. I think that we send a very clear message to people of color that you're not welcome here. I think that's the message that we're sending to people that have contributed so much to our medium and our industry and in ways that we benefit from. Don't think anybody wants a a handout or preferential treatment. Although that's what we give ourselves every year. I think that people just want to be acknowledged and appreciated and respected for their work. This is not a self righteous condemnation. Because i'm ashamed to say that i'm part of the problem. I have not done everything in my power to ensure that the said work on or inclusive. But i think that it's more than just having says multicultural -tural. I think that we have to really do the hard work to truly understand systemic racism. I think that it is the obligation of the people that have created and perpetuate and benefit from a system of oppression to be the ones that dismantle it. So that's on us. Making an impact with what he said. God bless him that he did a love joaquin right. I mean people also would say things to me like oh those fucking actors. Those whoever they are they're the elite always fucking who the fuck they think they are. They're not yeah well then then when someone when someone doesn't act like that and actually has something real to say contrary to popular belief. I don't wanna rock the boat but the boat is fucking rocked. And he went out and protested with jane fonda. They were both arrested. You know this is an what jane fonda funny. You got something on the line. Sometimes she's been doing it since the beginning she was doing in the vietnam war. I watched a documentary on her. Yeah I think it was called jane fonda in four parts you it. What did they Hanoi jane or jeanne because she went to the north vietnamese and she started to talk to the troops over there and sat on one of their tanks and it looked like she was supporting the enemy. When really she was trying she's come out and said she regrets that she did it but she was trying to send a message that these are people. You don't you're killing your bombing. People like this is not your fighting a war for people that don't care about lives might. She's trying to talk to the troops. She got onto the in this this movie that i saw which is a great documentary on her. She got onto the the the intercon this right but the intercom that the fighter pilots would here. Yeah sure and she said you know this. Is jane fonda in a before you fire. Please think that they're alive down here. There are women and children down here like there. This is not. This is not just some killing enemies. You're you killing civilians. There's going to be collateral damage in live and blood blood on your hands. And she was she. She was lambasted by the press. And now she's out there fighting again but i give her credit for standing up and i say i like her. I like jane man. You gotta give anybody credit who goes out there and puts their ass on the line to fuck in for a cause damn you know and we you know we were just talking about spike lee. And it's funny that you said that about jane fonda going over the intercom if you see if you see the five bloods in the movie. There's a vietnamese woman on the radio. Call her hanoi something. I can't remember what they call her. But it's almost like a reflection of hanoi. Jane where she's actually saying something that jane fonda was saying. Yeah and kind of like humanizing. The enemy and this is one of the things that i was talking to you about. This movie What he was trying to do is actually a scene where the five bloods are. Walking through the bush as they would say. And they're coming upon the viet cong. And you see these north vietnamese soldiers approaching them and for the first time ever in a movie about vietnam war they subtitle what the vietnamese soldiers saying and what they're saying is the one guy says you know he says when i left my house to come fight the this the american war. They called it when i came here to fight. My family was so worried about me and my wife. She packed a bag. And when we got to the first post that we were supposed to go to. I opened up the bag and there was a note in there with a poem and it was so cute and the other guy said. Oh that was cute and they're talking about and like you realize these are real people that humans man they were human beings that were called to go fight against american soldiers who had come in they are to stop to venus In a civil war get these people had been fighting each other and we were there under the guise of the spread of communism spread of commun-. You know we're in there like this is another war that we were pulled into by our government by the leader of our country. Okay and we're lied to. How many times are we gonna be lied to and lose american soldiers but then you got people waving the flag like oh. We're there's a. This is ridiculous enough is enough. I mean come on we. We have to really start thinking about what our leaders decisions are and how they affect us. Amen i mean an end. Unlike i am huge into spike lee. Stuff i really do.

"Perhaps the best known as the Spike Lee of journalism whose special attention to reinventing American history storm Twitter to say I'll probably get in trouble for this but to not say something would be a moral as a black woman as a journalist as an American I'm deeply ashamed ad that we ran this off bad which one was it by the way Nicole Hannah Jones she won the Pulitzer Prize for the sixteen nineteen project and I have to tell you if I had known all you had to do was get it to get a Pulitzer Prize was to write you know Black Panther as a racist historic account of America and I would've lied my way to journalistic privilege years ago who knew who it was that easy also jasmine Hughes the author of such riveting stories as eight forgettable things you can learn from Cardi B. at lunch or white people are co opting black people's jokes about white people well yesterday jasmine said as if it weren't already hard enough to be a black employee of The New York Times I know I can hear that listen sh sh can you hear it yes I can hear the cracks of the whips from the editors of The New York Times on the backs of all of their employees it's got one owner black employee he's need to assume that it would will get better white employees want a sweatshop slaves job and races place that is hi anyway if she's thrown down on a Twitter and I'm not going to I'm just not even going to because it kind of makes you gag it does a little bit when you're then of course we have set up the Cerro Jong the editor for the opinion section she's got wonderful racist tweets she was she was I'm very upset that they ran this this New York times op ed New York times writer Kyle Buchanan tweeted running this op ed puts blacks at The New York Times staff in danger while actually used in afterward too but I can't pronounce it because it seems pretty intellectual when he uses it so what is the article we told you about it yesterday was it the article can my children be friends with white people no that was not racist or Mary Poppins and the nannies shameful flirting with black face which blasts fictional characters about blackface but it you know don't have a single word about Justin Trudeau's public blackface fetish it doesn't say anything what could it be I shouldn't have to tell you this is racist our guide on discerning racist micro aggressions or social distancing is a privilege in which the author blames white people for the fact that covert nineteen is disproportionately fatal to blacks or the New York times op ed and the Oscar goes to white people or this one from the editorial board itself why does the U. S. military celebrate white supremacy which actually tries to argue that the military celebrates white supremacy or this one about British should prejudicial car loans new cars old racism wow this one racism is real and trump helps show it or maybe this one guns and racism about white supremacy in the gun lobby or this one Confederate flags and institutional racism with a new creative definition of racism let me quote Furthermore institutional racism doesn't require the enlisting of individual racists the machine does the discriminating it provides a remove a space between the unpleasantness the unpleasantness of racial discrimination and indeed hatred and the ultimate undeniable and for some desirable outcome of structural oppression wow so which one was so dangerous and so Razi that they couldn't print they had to apologize for get rid of one of their editors well our next guest is going to be talking about and I dare I even say it I could be on the wheel of termination today today could be my last show please do me a favor The New York Times it was actually not about race what they did it was a in an op ed penned by senator Tom cotton not about race us do what is the stereo typical thing people slaves picked inside days oh my gosh it's his last name is last may is that courageous I mean how do you not see that one anyway he wrote the op ed send in the troops senator cotton wrote not surprisingly public opinion is on the side of law enforcement and law and order not the insurrectionist according to a recent poll fifty eight percent of registered voters including nearly half of Democrats thirty seven percent of African Americans would support cities calling in the military to address the protest and demonstrations that are in response to the death of George Floyd that opinion may not appear often in chic salons but widespread support for this fact none the less the American people are not blind to injustices in our society but they know the basic responsibility of government is to maintain public order and safety well the the New York times had to come out and immediately apologized to the editor's note was I think as long as the editorial it didn't really say much but I just want to give you highlights of it after publication this essay met strong criticism from many readers and many Thai colleagues prompting editors to review the peace and editing process based on our review we have concluded that the SA fell short of our standards and should not have been published beyond the factual questions that were in there the tone of the essay in places was needlessly harsh and fall short of the thoughtful approach that advances useful debate R. O. okay so more like the op ed my children are my children can be friends with white people right it's actually a question I don't know if they actually solve that one or my news that China won't make me happy or the birthday letter to Karl Marx something more based in reality truth and not offensive okay okay okay I think I K. I think I have it now besides the Republicans are racist and conservatives are too dumb to tell the truth from lies the main critique that the new York times activists journalists had about his article was that op ed have a duty to the truth behind the ideology our goal okay all right so we have a duty to route mmhm so what about the op ads that have appeared in The New York Times in response to George Floyd's protests you know despite the previous history about people staying indoors because of lockdown measures in America protest is patriotic now this one is posted by the editorial board on June second as dozens of American cities burned it down you know just for the hell of it what is the new York times have to say about the anti lock down protesters the month earlier earlier the right sends in the quacks by Paul Krugman or this one the coronavirus and conservative mind which paints conservatives as unhinged conspiracy theorists who blame cove in nineteen on Hillary Clinton which I hadn't heard and didn't think of but not the kind of fun to noodle today I could go on and on and on but I don't need to because Tom cotton is coming up in just a few minutes.

Would you look at the number of black babies that are aborted, as opposed to any other color for that reason you should be pro life? It's called eugenics.

I would wait for trout, and I would give for his come up and walk away from Harper right now, a lot of talk about the Oscars Spike Lee, lost his mind about green book winning. I don't know whether he thought black klansman should win instead of grain book or just that he's tired of the way that white people vote for white people on a wards in. Movies about race. But what was your strongest takeaway from the Oscars? My well, my first strongest takeaway was whether or not Bradley Cooper, lady Gaga, I actually have had sex are having sex or will have sex in any sort of way because I realized while watching their performance they were acting, and they got exactly out of it. What they wanted. They were performing everyone went crazy. It's been the biggest story post-oscars performance, and what people aren't focused on is. It was all staged. It was just entertainment. They don't get the show. And I love watching that I loved it stars born. I love the chemistry between Cooper and Gaga. I love this song. And I love that. They chose to do with the way they did at the ceremony as far as Spike Lee. Listen green book should not have won best picture was not the best movie of the year. But that has nothing to do with race more African Americans one and and. Last night. Or however, many nights ago was then I think in history and deservedly so and I think it's more impactful talk about what is versus what you're concerned never was. And what is is the best performances are being recognized. Jane king had the best performance. And she won..

So, you know, one thing I did notice about the when I was watching the show didn't have a really hard political slant to it like it does every other year in maybe because there wasn't a host, by the way who needs one the show went off great without a host. So maybe because there was no host that was constantly out. There throwing the jabs out there. The only thing that really got a little political with spike, Lee's speech. He said pick lead over hate. Yeah. He's the right thing. Twenty twenty kind of thing. And that was about it, which I thought made it much more palatable. You know, you're watching a show like that. Because you're a big fan of movies. And you know, politics is everywhere now, and I I bet it got pretty good ratings because they kind of kept the politics audit. The president did tweet. It Spike Lee the tweet he called it a racist attack on him. He said be nice. It'd be nice. If Spike Lee could read his notes or better yet not have to use notes at all when doing his racist.

That we're talking about it sort of like, why didn't he get one for any of these ones that you seem to hold up so high, and then there's this one now he's finally getting into four it. Does it compare to his other work your opinions? It's a top ten Spike Lee movie got it. And and I'm okay with the the body of work Oscar, I'll just go ahead and say it that's fine with me.

That's a whole 'nother level of terror. A man who wore a mediaeval style, executioner's hood, baffled, police and baffled. The media seems to crave publicity.

"Maybe the Canada's like these people, what do you mean? Like like stillness alot what he wants us. Spike Lee has been slightly. He's been super entertaining all season. However, I've always been disgusted with spike Lee's behavior the way that he didn't clap for Peter fairly at the nominations lunch. Like, you know, I think that spike has carried himself just like we all thought Spike Lee would carry himself. That's why the academy blows him off time and time again because he's Spike Lee, a very different academy from from year to rare, especially. Sure. So very true. Very true. Very different academy the old adage, oh, Oscar photos or old people that you can't apply that anymore because they increased their membership by third more gender balance. More development makes us this season. So exciting because the academy is totally different. And there's so many more members. But to me. Again, the Passover Glenn Close six times. Why why would everyone just suddenly be like oh for the seventh yet? But never again never look away opened nationwide. Over on February eighth last weekend. It had a one week run in L A to qualify for foreign film at this year's Oscars. But now, everyone can see it and I poured them to do. So, and you know, what it opened wide and played to sold out screenings at a time. When kademi members are getting ready to vote who the hell knows fight. Finally in terms of the writing awards, the USC libraries script award for best movie adaptation went to Jeff leave. No trace guess not nominated for the Oscar. And here's the thing. These scripture awards have actually called the best adapted screenplay winner for every year this decade. Okay. Like that's a lot of movies you'd have to. I think the last one that didn't lineup was precious. Whereas the script or gave it to up in the air and precious won the Oscar, but other than that the entire decade the scripture award has been on point, obviously this year can't be on point because it's not nominated right? But it's like, wow. So so the people who normally are voting for screenplay or whatever they didn't go with black klansman..

"Rick. Hello, sir. Rush. I just wanted to make a comment about the the Spike Lee comment earlier about the black face and remind everybody that that was a billion. So if you want to know where the real hate is you can look to his comment. I think it's similar to the wayans brothers addressing up to white chicks. Eddie Murphy dressing up as a white guy in New York, and even for that matter peppy la- Pugh acting like a French guy and the cartoons. It's all really just comedy. And I think the hatred is definitely showing itself. More and more every day. Why? Thanks. I think you're right, Spike, Lee. I think as I that's what comedy comedy left-wing comedy has now become anger and rage. And you try to get applause. Rather than laughs. It's the strangest things if if a thing if comics get laughs, it means somebody's gonna be offended, and we can't have that. So now late night comedy seeks to just make the right people mad and cause the other right people to applaud. But I think you're right hatred is at the root of all of this got to take a break. Sadly, we are out of busy broadcast moments for the moment filter unstoppable. Rush, only e. Rush limbaugh. W. If.

"For this. Start over. Siemian rhapsody in a star is born you write songs or anything. I don't think I I just don't feel comfortable when you feel comfortable because like almost every single person that I've come in contact with in the music industry has told me that my nose is too big. And then I won't make it the directors of none of those films were nominated for best director and stand two of the best retro nominees are the directors of Roma which Netflix movie that didn't report any grosses, but they're presumably extremely low. Handful of theaters the same time, you can stream it and no additional costs on Netflix and another film nominated for best director, but not this picture is Cold War, which ain't black and white polish film. So far. One million dollars. Now, I know there were various issues with the director of bohemian rhapsody, but you mentioned a couple of the other big ones Black Panther. And a star is born they certainly didn't direct themselves, and they got generally great review. So we're Ryan Kugler and Bradley Cooper snubbed in the director category. I mean, a lot of people think they were wine Kugler and people weren't sure if he can not mandated, frankly, just because Black Panther is the first superhero film to even be nominated for best picture. So that's a big deal and he ended up itself. And also, get director would have been even more than accomplishment Morris. More surprising. I think for superhero fans more of a wonderful surprise. You know, don't forget there can be up to ten movies nominated for best picture this year were eight, but there are always five nominees. So was going to be tough for him. Bradley Cooper to not be nominated shocked a lot of people. A star is born is one of the has long been a favorite to win best picture and to really be the big winner at the Oscars this year. So it was very surprised that's a favorite at the Oscars. Overall, tonight, even. Best director domination. So in your article, you suggest that we take a close look at these lower grossing films connected with the best director category to perhaps figure out which best picture nominees. Have the best chance of winning? These are the directors who did black klansman Cold War, the favorite Roma advice as you noted. I've seen only the favorite advice to those fives. So tell me more about the directors here, including Spike Lee with black klansman, and what the prospects are now for the directors in that category. Sure. Well, Spike Lee, it's a huge accomplishment. He's been, you know, a major force in in film directing for thirty years now. And this is the first time being nominated for best director. So it's a really big deal for him. And you know, black klansman is very well liked in Hollywood. Again, extremely good reviews. And you know, it would be amazing recognition. I just event movie of his career if he were to win in enroll. Now, you have a director who's one before Affonso Koran he won for gravity, but this is a visiting net. Flicks movie that you know, the vast majority of people virtually everyone who has seen a streaming on their TV or other digital device have very very limited theatrical release, and so it's kind of. Would really say something, you know, this is the author's are supposed to be about honoring movies and movie going, and this is this movie, but it's not a movie that you see in a movie theater. And so that would be it would really kind of be transformation of the way Hollywood things about movies way. Oscars think about movies, if they were to honor Koran for this film, perhaps you'll win best director, but they won't give it that picture because you know, it is a well. Well, well, like film, and he's a well like director, and I think it's a great movie people system nation, so they're really grappling with what to do with it. And then in Cold War. You have a film. That's really well liked. It got read reviews, and you have a director not well known here, but you know, by spice any assets, he's he's very well known and respected then Fritz? So the Wall Street Journal with this weekend's Jim Cesco, it's thirty minutes after the hour on this weekend.

"That Koran is definitely the one to beat and he probably almost assuredly will win, but I would say of the five nominated invest director, which is Ron Spike Lee yoga's length for the favorite puzzle public housekeeper Cold War and adamant came for vice that Spike Lee would be number two. Look, this is what you're going to hear. I think because they're talking about it internally already. There has never been a black best director winner. And so I think you can certainly make the case for Afonso Koran for the just sheer achievement of Roma. And but I think you can make a case for Spike Lee for the achievement of black klansman, plus a career that has been I think. You know, a overlooked in certain ways by the academy and really as a historic award. So I don't think we've we've started even thinking about that yet. And you know, it could easily also not happen for a million reasons. But I think that spike should absolutely not be counted out. I think he has a real chance in that category. Yeah. And I think also, you know, something that people have noted with some frustration today is that the best direction categories all men, despite some, you know, very worthy female directors in Debra Granik for leave no trace or Marielle Heller for can you ever? Forgive me that giving the words like Lee Koran already house one would sort of at least maybe cushion that injustice some because it would kind of right another wrong. So I don't again, I think that we think about these things differently than, you know, your average academy member, but I could see that narrative sort of coalesce. They're gonna make a run on it. And and you know, it's interesting that Peter Farrelly did not come in director. It's interesting that Bradley Cooper did not come in and director or editing. Chris. Rosen our friend who's now the editor at TV guide, but a famed Oscar prognosticator who also sometimes has crazy ideas. But today he was saying wait a minute is black klansman actually, the the best picture front runner. I mean, it's very unclear who the best picture front runner is right now. And that's as crazy about today. Yeah. I mean, Roma in the favorite lead with ten, but Roma, you know, did not all of them kind of miss some things except for black clansmen has has all the nominations..

"Ju just never that moment where you were like, I don't know. Maybe the entire paradigm is shifting the Entertainment Weekly cover for six on a plane was like a low budget thriller that might change the film industry. Forever. Spooky and they wrote spooky with seven S's. Snakes on a plan snakes. I just you know, the story was just so good where they were like they tried to change the title and say MO Jackson's like, I literally only signed on the script was called snakes only. The only like like flight four to seven wants to see that. But what's so cool about him to is like his career? It's like so all over the place anything he's done action movies like in the nineties. Right. He was all these thrillers. But then he's also done all the Tarantino's stuff. I. Likely this cool. We've talked about this and other episode. He was a full on drug at he was like a theatrically trained series day. Jack. Guy who a lot of stage acting right? Stuff where you're like. Oh, he likes shows up. I'm going to get you sucker when he's in good foes wherever he's already in his thirties. Jungle fever when he starts to come. Right. He's he's in his thirties van, and I think he was viewed as best case scenario. This guy turns out like John Ortiz. He's like a legend of the New York stage. Forties. Sorry. But you know, what I'm saying like junk tease, like we'll show up big movies. Like, he's got like a good film and television crew, but he's not like a star, you know, and same jacket was like that's probably where he's heading. He had become a trick. He'd been a full crack cocaine addict for awhile sure, kicked it late, and then sort of put that experience into jungle fever, which at that point is his third Spike Lee. He's in third because I think like do the right thing was one of his first floor fourth season schooling sober kind of like now he's like full on the tracks performances. Sure jungle fever that give him best supporting actor com, which isn't a word that doesn't exist. They did they invented in order for him just to recognize this performance off of that Pulp Fiction, and then he'd just becomes a legend immediately overnight. And he is a guy where once he starts doing the big paycheck movies. Sam Jack is one of these dudes where he just never fucking phones it in. I think he can be good or great because even agree. Good. Sam Javer thought he was bad at Novi never know because good Sam Jack. You're like, it's the thing. I've seen do with that. But he's always engaging. You can tell he's in the pocket. He works really hard. He's been in bed movies. Certainly I love how he weighed in recently about the that. I think she's a Senator calling Trump motherfucker and how he would like he's like I like he's like the word. Motherfucker? Yes. He so going to he's been in so many good movies. I think it was a New Yorker profile. Remember that he's Mace Windu? There is a New Yorker profile of him some years back where heat they talked to his agent. I think and he said I'm constantly having to deal with phone calls Sam where he called in from complain about everything, and I have to say them Sam you have to remember no one else is going to be as good as you are. And not just in terms of talent. He's apparently one of those guys were arrives on set. And he's like WordPerfect nails is blocking never has a bad. Take is like so prepared such a pro wraps early goes and plays golf like is like really invested really prepared. And he's like he never fights with actors were at his same weight class. Sure. And that like, you get it like whatever fucking thing. He's in whether directors good or bad or not he sits in his trailer, he watches kung FU movies on a loop an anime, and then they're like the call him. He nails it in one take. Right. You know what?

"So that's a reference to the videotape and about urinating on a woman. And it's getting a lot of laughs. But it feels like turning R Kelly into a punchline in some ways enables the behavior to continue. Right. I mean, it's somehow, you know, we can laugh at it. Because it's a it's a crazy overblown world where weird things happen. You know, an R Kelly kind of remade himself at one point from this like super nasty. You know, sexed up Rb guy into a spiritual singer right with I believe I can fly. So the idea that these tapes came out comedians loved it because it's like, oh my gosh. We can knock this guy off the pedestal, and it's really funny, but then where was the accountability for those young girls. And that was the piece that was missing the series has been incredibly popular on lifetime. Almost two million. People watched it in the first week, and that has translated to more attention for his music and Spotify is reporting that arc Kelly's music has increased sixteen percent, but he also still has record label. What does this have to say about popularity and what that grants you in terms of what you can get away with the interesting thing about our Kelly, which isn't the case with a lot of artists is that as these stories were starting to come out in the early two thousands, the more disturbing. I were the more has music sold. And it wasn't as if he was a huge star. When the stuff started coming out his career seemed to bump up a notch. Every time something really horrible about him would come out. And I don't wanna look at television for leadership on this issue. But Roseanne Barr puts out a racist tweet and ABC drops her show, which is the number one show on television are Kelly even if he were dropped by his record label. Somebody else would sign him right because he sells records. Yes. There seemed to be a different way of judging somebody's behavior, and I wouldn't say television is a shining example. But compared to television, the music business seems like they can learn a little bit in this. You know, serve me to era when we've been looking at all these different industries music has largely been overlooked. And this is really kind of one of the first things I would say, that's that's come out where people have gone while what is going on in this strange little, you know, ecosystem where this is. Okay. But also, you know, the music industry and the digital era. It has not done very well. So to lose a artists like R Kelly who is a catalogue artist who has so much music that they can still make a ton of. Money on. And there aren't many of those kind of artists around and they're not gonna let that go easily. The rain all the is the TV critic for the LA times, Lauren. Great to see you.
