Episode Info:

It's Oscar season and Black History month, so we'd be remiss if we didn't take a look at Spike Lee's most recent film (and his first nomination for Best Director). We discuss the racist past of America and how Spike uses this particular story to highlight how far and how little we've come since this true story took place. This episode was also recorded before the Oscars, so we speculate whether Lee will be able to snag the votes to win the category with a film about racism that doesn't have white people leaving the theater feeling warm, fuzzy and well-distanced from the pervasive system of white supremacy that exists to this day.
