Lee Blasts 'Crack-Smoking' Rice
Director SPIKE LEE has launched a scathing attack on US Secretary Of State CONDOLEEZZA RICE, controversially declaring the government official should "stop smoking that crack". The MALCOLM X film-maker believes Rice was too busy enjoying living the high-life in Washington DC and New York City, while people in the southern states were suffering from the after-effects of Hurricane Katrina last summer (05). He tells America's Stuff magazine, "I dislike Condoleezza Rice more than (PRESIDENT GEORGE W) BUSH. The thing about it is that she's gotten a free ride from black people. "People say, 'She's so successful' and 'Look at her position as a black woman.' She is a black woman who grew up in Birmingham, Alabama, and said that she never experienced a day of racism in her life. "Condi, stop smoking that crack! "I know you love your Ferragamo shoes, but come on. While people were drowning in New Orleans, she was going up and down Madison Avenue buying Ferragamo shoes. Then she went to see SPAMALOT (Broadway musical)."
