that time spike lee went OFF about gentrification

spike-lee1during an event at brooklyn’s pratt institute, spike lee compares gentrification in new york to european colonization — some may call this an exaggeration, but similarities definitely exist.  i totally agree with his call for respect by white people moving into a previously all-black or latino neighborhood.  a community’s culture and traditions shouldn’t change because the dominant group comes to town.
