[CLINT RESPONSE TO CRITICISM FROM SPIKE LEE THAT HIS MOVIES "Flags of Our Fathers" and "Letters from Iwo Jima" FAILED TO RECOGNIZE BLACK SOLDIERS]
"Does he know anything about American history?" Eastwood told Focus when asked about Lee's criticism. "The U.S. military was segregated til the Korean War, and the blacks in World War Two were totally segregated. The only black battalion on Iwo Jima was a small munitions supply unit that came to the beach.
"The story was about the men who raised the flag and we can't make them black if they were not there. So tell him: Why don't you go back and study your history and stop mouthing off!"
You got owned Spike....
