Personal Quote:

[on Spike Lee's criticism of him] I'm so sick of hearing about damn Spike Lee. Spike can go straight to hell! You can print that. I am sick of him talking about me, I am sick of him saying, "This is a coon, this is a buffoon." I am sick of him talking about black people going to see movies. This is what he said: "You vote by what you see," as if black people don't know what they want to see. See more »
