    People get jealous when other races build each other up our race likes to tear each other down. Our ancestors are shaking their heads.

        That dial tone ending can seem rather rude depending on how the person finished talking. In this case it sounded like you hung up in his face. You gotta be careful about that this time it came off disrespectful

          Spike Lee got rid of the PJs and I was done with him

            Spike had something real to say about how Tyler basically marketed to 'the bitter angry black woman" and built his empire off of that. The image of black men was being labelled, and I'd even go so far as to say that Tyler Perry assisted the idea that gangsta rap started, that black men are almost inherently toxic in their masculinity (and never offered the community a counter balance in any way). If Clifton Powell wants to talk about what the code amongst black people should be, perhaps he should understand that the code was essentially broken when Tyler decided to go down that very biased path to begin with. Spike isn't a saint either, but he was courageous enough at the time to voice his concern. And where the hell is real black media nowadays anyways? Clifton is pissed about how Spike spoke to the white press, as if there's a real form of black press that isn't already in the pocket of whites anyway lol. Spike has since decided to be a part of the same gender bending cabal that runs Hollywood now, and so there may not be a black voice left in that arena that will challenge anything anymore.

                Mr. Clifton Powell you do not need to apologize for speaking the truth. Spike Lee words came from a place of jealousy and you called him on it. I say, THANK YOU CP💜💜💜

                      Powell, Lee and Perry are FREEMASON PUPPETS working their HOMOSEXUAL and RACIAL DIVIDE B.S. on Society.

                              Spike lee should be protested,boycotted tared and feathered and have his back whipped for raceism.

                                                    I remember that interview when he was talking about Spike Lee. His argument was that spike Lee was treating people like shit and not paying for flights and underpaying actors. CP is not the only one to call spike on his Bullshit. He was talking like he really wanted to fuck Spike Lee Up and I could tell he was not playing. He's trying to clean it up now which I don't think he should. I wouldn't anyway.

He is right for defending Tyler. He speaks wisdom. I do see too much mess in the media related to our community. I don't hear or see the same criticisms in the Colonizers communities. They cover up each other's misdeeds. Prime example: Lauer and others who molested women. Tyler was homeless and hungry and he earned every centilla of his success. Other male black stars wore dresses but few built studios and excelled like he has.
