    I think the interviewer is trying to start something. All three men are great in their own way.

      He backpedaling like a motherfucka. Anybody that saw that interview where he dissed Spike, knows that he was dead serious. He wasn’t joking or smiling. Now that his career has gone ice cold he’s trying to clean it up. Spike nor Tyler is hiring his ass. He clowned Tyler at that same time trying to defend him.

                                      Black Folks need to stop arguing in the public eye. Clif was wrong for saying he'd beat spikes ass. He was dead wrong. White folks dont do what we do. Time out for the negativity

                                              His best role was on "roc" I think that's where all of his characters were based off. Still can't believe dude knocked o-dog down them steps in dead prez.
                                              Spike Lee is still the best to ever do it IMO

                                                                          The White colonists used to rape lots of strong black men in the plantation to break their spirit, also as a form of submission

                                                                          Now, black Hollywood promoting homosexuality as a black culture.

                                                                          He just wanted to remind Tyler Perry to stop dressing like a bitch, that he's disrespecting the ancestors who were victimized by those white colonists homosexual

From Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter all you see is blks arguing amongst each other for no reason. We never uplift each other at all we so busy telling each other business and doing the most when we mad. As a human being we need to learn the word respect because we don't have none of that in our community at all. You have other race watching us, looking down on us saying why are we each other enemies. Whether we do good or bad it's negativity in the room. Even when we go to college to get a degree our own kind always say your still ain't nothing your not going no where with your education. We as an blks need to learn to give credit where it is do and stop being mean all the time. We are the only one's that is leaving this earth faster than any other race but we not going to care or want to hear it. If we don't change it now it will get worse then it is now.

                                                                                    Tyler Perry and Spike Lee both have different visions for what they would like to present to the world, so no need for them to team up, per se, but at best respecting each other and not putting the other down is a start which I believe is what Clifton Powell was trying to communicate and I agree. Glad they were able to talk it out and come to an understanding as they're both trailblazers in the industry. Oh, and it was so encouraging how Tyler Perry still honored Spike Lee by naming a sound stage after him, it speaks a lot to Tyler's character.

Back then we didn't know him by name we just knew him as a guy that seemed to be in a lot of movies as a co-star

Then you need to utilize the black press that you have. This still won't stop white people from finding out what you said and using it against you. This is a conversation for people who have access to decision makers. It's not for regular folks who see this all as entertainment.
