Spike Lee: "There Is A War On The Black Male"


ANDERSON COOPER: So what do you say to those largely white Americans who see what is happening here and maybe don't understand what is happening here or disagree with what is happening here? You know what many people said to me just today, look, this isn't just about Michael Brown, this is about generations of issues that have gone on in this community and continued to go on in this community. Is that how you see it?

SPIKE LEE: I see it. This is about Trayvon Martin. This is about Jordan Davis, Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Ezell [Ford], who was shot a couple days ago, today in St. Louis a couple blocks away another African-American man who was shot and killed today. They said he had a knife. I just think there is a war on the black male and it's tearing the country apart in my opinion.
