are some comments Spike Lee has made regarding him supposedly being passed over to direct Ali
. The gist of his argument is that white people shouldn't make a film about black people. "I'm tired of other people documenting our history," he says. Basically, I think Spike's argument is bullshit and I, frankly, doubt that Lee could've directed a better Ali
than Mann. His film, I think, is a highly flawed, but ultimately worthy effort.
McBain and I have already discussed both Lee's contention as well as the worth of the film on AIM, but we thought this would make a good Milk Plus discussion, so we're taking it here so's y'all can join in. I'll let him tell you his stance.
