Spike Lee Tells Condoleezza Rice to “Stop Smoking That Crack!”

The New York Daily News is reporting (hat tip to Drudge) that film director Spike Lee has some truly unkind words for Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in an interview he did for “Stuff” magazine. According to the article:

“Says Lee: ‘I dislike Condoleezza Rice more than [President] Bush. The thing about it is that she's gotten a free ride from black people.’"

Lee didn’t stop there:

“‘People say, 'She's so successful' and 'Look at her position as a black woman.' She is a black woman who grew up in Birmingham, Ala., and said that she never experienced a day of racism in her life,’ Lee tells the April issue of Stuff magazine.”

Or there:

“"I know you love your Ferragamo shoes, but come on. While people were drowning in New Orleans, she was going up and down Madison Ave. buying Ferragamo shoes. Then she went to see 'Spamalot.'’"

And, in classic Spike Lee-ese: "'Condi, stop smoking that crack!’"

This from a man who publicly stated that the Bush administration planted bombs in the levees to purposely flood New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina hit. Physician – heal thyself.
