Lee admits that he “see’s a broken promise” when looking at The United States Flag. Something he reminds us you will see in the film Da 5 Bloods. The star of the filmmakers latest work is Chadwick Boseman who’s character tells his fellow bloods how “black people having been fighting for the United States from the very beginning.” Lee in the interview gives us an example by saying “the first person to die for this country at the Boston Massacre was Crispus Attucks in 1770.” He went on to say “the whole Kaepernick kneeling was all about what we are marching for today, the whole narrative got twisted. Colin wasn’t protesting the US Flag or the veterans that fought for this country, he was kneeling for social injustice.”
The iconic filmmaker wrote the script for “Do The Right Thing” back in 1988, some 31 years ago. He explains how that award winning film is so relevant today.
