Luke Calls Spike Lee ‘Uncle Tom, House Negro’ for ‘Django’ Bashing (772 hits)

January 16, 2013 ---2 Live Crew alum Luther Campbell has jumped into the debate over Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained.” In an op-ed for the Miami New Times, the former rapper weighs in on Spike Lee, who has publicly taken issue with Tarantino’s repeated use of the n-word in “Django’s” script.

“Screw Spike Lee,” Campbell begins. “Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’ is a brilliant flick that more accurately depicts the African American experience than any of the 15 movies about black culture Lee’s directed in his lifetime.”

He continues: “Lee needs to get over himself. He’s upset because Tarantino makes better movies. The man who put Malcolm X on the big screen is Hollywood’s resident house negro; a bougie activist who wants to tell his fellow white auteurs how they can and can’t depict African Americans.”

Campbell ends his missive with this bullet:

“Spike is upset because Samuel L. Jackson’s character in the movie is just like him: a conniving and scheming Uncle Tom.”
