  • A KKK march and rally in Maryland 1998

Spike Lee unveiled his new film "BlacKkKlansman" last night at the Cannes Film Festival and in a passionate monologue slammed the USA president without mentioning Donald Trump by name for his reaction to last year's white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. Mrs. Bro said, 'Spike, I give you permission to put that in.' Once I got permission, I said, 'Fuck everybody else, that motherfucking scene is staying in the motherfucking movie.' Cuz that was a murder. It's the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Adam Driver, Topher Grace and Laura Harrier also star in the film, slated for an August release in the U.S. Trump is later seen on camera blaming people on "both sides" for the bloodshed.

BlacKkKlansman was in pre-production when the Charlottesville riot happened, and Lee said "right away, I knew this had to be the coda for the film".

"This film to me is a wake-up call". Lee said his staff sought out cellphone videos from onlookers and sources to obtain a more complete view of the tragedy.

"It's odd but then you have to get through your shooting day", he told a small group of journalists. Adam Driver plays the detective who subs for Stallworth in his face-to-face meetings with the KKK. They say, 'We want you to come down'.

China remains committed to Iran deal despite United States pullout
Michael Rubin, an Iran expert at the American Enterprise Institute, said the USA invasion of Iraq under George W. And he added, "I don't trust these three countries", Britain, France and Germany. "We're out of the deal.

The director has a rich history of using cinema to call out America's inherent racism and portray the black experience with films like Do the Right Thing, Malcolm X and 4 Little Girls.

The first BlacKkKlansman trailer dropped and it seems like law enforcement got the drop on David Duke's Ku Klux Klan. The director said the new film's themes are far from restricted to the US. "We don't know what's up or down or right or wrong".

Spike Lee delivered a scathing speech criticizing the United States president Tuesday night at the Cannes Film Festival, refusing to mention the Donald Trump by name as he tore into his failure to unite a nation divided by racial tensions.
