Lee and Njeri, Part 2

July 14, 1991

It's bad enough that "white bashing" is becoming so popular that even some whites are applauding it. But when letter writer Rick Edelstein stated that "racism was invented by white people," that was too much.

The Chinese and Japanese didn't visit America to learn their bad behavior. It wasn't white racism that gave the Jews a hard life in early history. And blacks made slaves of blacks long before white men did.

"We have been downtrodden" as an excuse for bad behavior, black racism and white guilt manipulation is getting old. So is the subject matter of Lee's films.
