throwing the trashcan through the window aint doing the right thing
Thats why I like that film so much. Wen I watched it in a class once you could see and feel the difference in opinions lol.
Not sayin youre white cuz it dont really matter but I thought this was funny
white people still ask me why Mookie threw the can through the window,” Lee said in an interview. “Twenty years later, they’re still asking me that.”
“No black person ever, in 20 years, no person of color has ever asked me why.”
That question is what made “Do The Right Thing” so explosive. Some writers speculated, erroneously, that it would incite riots.
“People were fearful of the backlash,” said Rosie Perez, who played Mookie’s Puerto Rican girlfriend, Tina. “A lot of things happening in the movie were happening in real life. People were afraid when the truth, although a little exaggerated, was put up on the screen for everyone to see.”
I think mook knew he had to do SOMETHING after raheim got killed.
people were looking at him like he was on the wrong side and he essentially had to do the right thing....right being subjective.
I agree wit spike tho...never met a black person who questioned that...but I mean..im sure there are people of all races who do.
Ima check out miracle today
