Radio Raheem

Spike Lee marching in Washington D.C. demonstration against police violence.

Sal's pizzeria was in the NY Times Crossword today, and I could only remember Danny Aiello at first, not Sal. (Do The Right Thing)

Spike Lee foresaw and prophesied Michael Brown and Eric Garner in his film in the character of Radio Raheem (I'm pretty sure that was the name... too lazy to look it up).
Of course, it is easy to prophesy future violence against black folks when you're in a society that has such violence as one of its hidden pillars.
