Spike Lee has claimed that there is "a war on the black male" in Ferguson, Missouri, which is "tearing the country apart".


The 57-year-old director said that black Americans were "fool" to think that electing a black president would put an end to "the country's racial problems", the Washington Times reported.

He revealed that he thinks the educational system, the prison system and everything is responsible for the young black men growing up with no hope, which in his opinion is "systematic".

The 'Oldboy' director explained that the 'Ferguson unrest' was a result of people getting to the "tipping point, where they couldn't take it anymore.

Lee stated that he did not favour the word "riot", where people burn down stuff and loot, instead he wanted to use the word "uprising".

He added that he hopes people weren't happy with the verdict of this upcoming trial, which according to him would really "blow up" things.
