    As an additional gesture of atonement and regret, Mr. Lee had to write on a blackboard 10,000 times, "I am a freakin' idiot."

    I was going to say, talk about an idiot with deep pockets that would be a perfect target to sue. Those people in FL probably had half the lawyers in the US calling them.

    Neat. So, this means if you are David Duke and you "accidentally" burn a cross in the wrong yard, you can appologize and settle and not be charged with a hate crime? Spike Lee commited a hate crime by his actions and his tweets. He was inciting people to commit violence against these people on the basis of their race and endangering them.

    I want to see a prosecution.

    It must have been very hard for him to speak nice to white people.

    He probably had to kick a white homeless guy to lift his spirits.

    I think he was referring to the Black Panthers who were intimidating voters with clubs, that he refused to prosecute.

    There is a whole lot more newsworthy things going on in the world than to be concerned with this crap.
