    I was actually glad that I went into the movie not knowing what the ending would be. It made it that much more powerful.

    Spike Lee will forever be "Mookie" from "Do the right thing". Such a great Director!

    I feel like Jimmy definitely hasn't seen the movie. One of a couple of reasons this was awkward af.
    I also have a hunch he has no idea who Spike Lee is but someone backstage told him he's a big deal.

    Another glowing Example of Jimmy's cringe worthy personality. "Racism is so Gross", really heart felt there buddy.

    This is a really good example of Jimmy's absolutely atrocious interview skills. I can't think of another host as bad as him. Spike doesn't have any of his gibberish and just takes over fortunately

    Spike Lee is an good filmmaker. He makes interesting films. I'm planning to see it when it comes out. Why does he always wear hats? What does his hair look like now?

    Fallon is inarticulate, and that's maybe the most generous thing you can say about his TV presence.

    I can't going to bash Jimmy for his interview skills, he's trying and that's something. Thanks for having him on and talking about important issues. It's good to see you not sitting on the fence so much

    Spike Lee is a treasure to the world. This movie is so on time for America. As can be seen by many of the hate filled responses to this video America still suffers tremendously from the racism and white supremacy.

    Spike spoke the truth. Everything we see, as it's happening right now ain't nothing but a damn rerun of a rerun that was a rerun which is still rerunning!!!

    We'll never escape racism.. which is why we can't be complacent, and let it fester. Thank the flying spaghetti monster for men like this who shine a light on it and refuse to turn the beam away
