Spike Lee has never been one to bite his tongue.

And since the murder of Trayvon Martin has struck a chord with millions of people around the country, it is only fitting that Spike Lee is one of the most vocal advocates regarding the case.

Lee has posted over 300 posts on Twitter to vent his anger over the handling of Trayvon Martin's ongoing murder investigation and even posted the address of George Zimmerman, the man who shot Trayvon Martin.

Ch-ch-check out some of Lee's tweets, as he says:

"America the beautiful," he wrote, "a country where a Black teenager can be shot and killed coming from a 7-Eleven buying an iced tea and a bag of Skittles. Why is George Zimmerman still free?"

Lee also tweeted this heartfelt message:

"We'll all go to bed tonight, but when the parents of Trayvon wake up tomorrow morning, their son will not be there. Justice of law for Trayvon."

Our hearts go out to Trayvon Martin's family during these extremely trying times.

What do U think of Spike Lee's tweets???

    Yes because crimes only effect black people. Funny enough generally they are the ones committing the crimes. Someone tell this racist nig#$ to stfu.



  2. 2

    F*ck Spike Lee. Old crusty ass f*ck ain't been shit for years.



  3. 3

    what a complete moron… playing the race card, trying to start shit. He doesn't even know the facts yet. Why isn't he outraged about the greatest threat to young black men in USA today….. OTHER young black men!!! Where is the outrage over the young children killed in crossfire shootings by Mr. Lee's "people" in ChicagObamaLand ????
    Why hasn't mr president addressed the "bounty" put on mr. Zimmerman??? or the FACT that there are witnesses that saw the dead young man attacking the shooter first?

    Funny how things like this bring out the true racist in a lot of people. Makes me fear for my children and the world. This is not a racial issue but the kid was a 'black' male. Regardless of race he was killed in cold blood and all parents should fear people like George Zimmerman. This man would have done the same regardless of the kids race- he followed this kid and the result is completely on his shoulders and his fault. Why does anyone give Trayvon Martin the credit that perhaps he was fighting for his life- a creepy guy was stalking him with a gun! Where is his right to stand his ground? Oh yea- but he cant speak for himself- zimmerman took tgat rite away. Please dont use this tragedy to show the racist inside.

    My heart goes out to Trayvon's family. Justice must be served.



  6. 6

    Spike Lee is a pureblood racist

    There is nothing worst then the truth being twisted to suit the needs of people. Zimmerman has been labled a murderer and convicted as such by the black and liberal community. The evidence has not even been made public yet some people playing the race card have already concluded that he is 100% a cold blooded killer.

    Re: Dmansmom – zImmerman called him a coon on the phone… not a race issue, huh? You should fear for your children because racism is still in America, just hidden occasionally until it emerges and then it is stronger than ever… If race isn't the issue than gun laws are. Carrying a gun should be illegal in every state. We are not cowboys and you can't stalk someone and kill them.

    he is not a killer just an idiot who at the least caused the death of an innocent teenager. The point is he should have left alone once the police said they were on the way. Black white green or purple- he is responsible and every race should be behind this family. There is no way he should walk awy from this without being held accountable for his role in this kids death.



  10. 10

    I'm just gonna brush of all that IGNORANCE up there ^^^ and say this. A young man lost his life for no good cause. Whether he initiated some kind of altercation or not. He was NOT armed. If Zimmerman couldn't hold his own against a sixteen year old in a fair fight he should have stayed his PUNK ASS in the car. Those of you who don't think this is a race issue (*cough* white privilege *cough*) then what about just having some genuine respect and compassion for human life?



  11. 11

    Are you fucking serious. Your a fucking joke you pathetic homo. Let the law figure this out. For god sakes, because he was black, no one want's to investigate, they just want to kill this guy, who by the way, is latino, not white. Spike Lee is a fucking idiot, remember jungle fever, and the message. His message was, white women should not be with black men, it's just a fad for the white chicks. HE's a racist and a piece of shit, and let the facts cmoe out before you act like a 13 year old girl agan and jump to conclusions.



  12. 12

    Re: carmel1024 – God your a fucking moron. People like you are the reason shit is fucked up. HE DID NOT CALL HIM A COON ON THE PHONE. Multiple audio experts have listened too and broke down the recording and at best, they say they cannot tell, at worste, they say he called him a punk, not coon. So shut the fuck up and quit spreading lies, that's how this case has turned into a witch hunt, but stupid fucks like you and homo perez.



  13. 13

    oh and another thing! For those of you who don't agree, why did you feel it necessary to resort to using racial slurs? That's proof right there that racism is still an issue. It's ok to disagree but damn, why he gotta be all that? I think you're all a bunch of ignorant mother f*ckers but you don't see me using racial slurs towards you. EXPAND YOUR VOCABULARY. IMJUSTSAYIN

    Rabid, Racist who should have charges filed against him for releasing Zimmerman's address
    For me the most amazing part of this whole event is that there is no strong black voice of reason, the fact that Trayvon was shot and killed is tragic, but they were out in the streets protesting, before any other facts were out there
    I think for Obama to have aded his two cents, showed total lack of self control, I'M sure he feels this will garner him more black votes come Nov, but I don't think he understood at what price
    Where was Obama when whites, were being murdered, raped, set on fire ???

    A man has been tried and convicted in public court on the basis of a perception. So sad our country hasn't evolved any further. Spike Lee has always fanned the flames, and is a long time reverse racist. Even sadder that he wouldn't see that his actions might kill another man.



  16. 16

    AN eye for an eye is never the answer. I'm saddened by the numerous conclusions that have been jumped to…in this situation. People are so quick to jump on a bandwagon they know nothing or little about. Much like the Kony 2012 campaign, I won't be jumping on this bandwagon and will wait for our justice system to determine Zimmerman's punishment.



  17. 17

    WOW. now if this were a white kid who got shot walking down the street it would be just another day. it's not surprising that the black community is so defensive about a situation like this, simply because the kid was black. it's a sad thing that this happens to ANY kid in america regardless of skin color-which it does. reverse discrimination is alive ppl



  18. 18

    I think Spike Lee should shut his mouth until he knows all the facts.



  19. 19

    Yeah, he's just an "innocent teenager" one who already was suspended for carrying a burglery tool and a bag of jewelery, that "wasn't his."

    The story as it supposedly happened doesn't make complete sense to me. My first thought was that there might be more to it. Spike's old enough to know this too, and does he even give thought to the idea that he may have jumped the gun? Time will tell. Two sides, two sides, along with evidence and witnesses.

    Re: NookiesWA – Yea B*tch there are only black people locked up in state and federal prisons. You need to stfu and maybe some of your racism to someone besides your f*cking keyboard so you can get some FEEDBACK. And you people wonder why black people are aggressive and angry. B*tch you are a coward get a life.

    You are correct. Racism is very much alive today. And it's because black people won't let it be otherwise! They don't want it to end. If it ends they lose there sense of entitlement. Equality? United Negro college fund? Association for advancement of colored people? Black TV channels? Black magazines? On and on! What would Sharpton, Jackson and the rest of the black silver tongues say if we started a white people only college fund, all white TV channel, and the like? Yeah, lets do that… The United Caucasian College fund! And I hear black people hate to be called "colored"! But I guess if there's free money involved its cool! I never owned a slave. My ancestry is German, so my ancestors never owned slaves. I don't owe black people shit!! Don't hate me and I wont hate you! Don't use me and we'll be just fine!
