Quote Of The Day – Spike Lee

“First of all, I’m not homophobic. Because I have a character say the word ‘faggot’ or ‘homo’ that does not mean that I’m homophobic. Martin Scorsese is not racist. The characters are people he grew up with, characters in the mean streets — that’s those people talking, not him. In that world, those are the things people say. When I went to Morehouse College that’s the way they spoke, thought and talked about homosexuals.” – Spike Lee, speaking to BET. (Via Towleroad)
