Spike Lee Blasts Clint Eastwood

Spike Lee was at a press conference on Tuesday at the Cannes Film Festival where he lashed out on fellow filmmaker Clint Eastwood for not casting enough black people in his movies.

Lee feels like there should have been more African-American in Clint Eastwood’s Flags of our Fathers and Letters From Iwo Jima.

Lee said, "There were many African-Americans who survived that war and who were upset at Clint for not having one (in the films). That was his version: the negro soldier did not exist. I have a different version."

Do you feel like he makes a valid point?
