Famous filmmaker Spike Lee joined the New Orleans Saints Tuesday in an online video meeting. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Lee commended the Saints' very own veteran quarterback Drew Brees for standing up to President Donald Trump last week before sharing his experiences in race relations.
Saints coach Sean Payton even joked that he liked Lee until he found out he was a die-hard New York Knicks fan.
In these trying times, Lee definitely wants his voice to be heard as he also recently did an interview with CBS News:
“You had the black power movement, the anti-war movement, the women's movement and all these things were coming together to move the country forward. We're seeing this today in the United States of America.”
The Atlanta-born director has been a known advocate of equality for African-American since the release of his first film She's Gotta Have It in 1985. His stories often bring to light the oppression and the racism that plagues America to this day.
