Spike Lee says black culture being erased from New York City by whites with “Christopher Columbus Syndrome” and Fort Greene looks like Westminster Dog Show.

OUR COMMON GROUND Omnibus‘s insight:

‘You can’t just come in the neighborhood and start bogarting and say, like you’re motherf*****’ Columbus and kill off the Native Americans. Or what they do in Brazil, what they did to the indigenous people. You have to come with respect. There’s a code. There’s people.’
