Lee Daniels, the director producer of “The Butler” told Piers Morgan that America is more racist today under Obama.
“I think that people are angry that he’s president, and I think that they’re showing their true colors.”
It’s not that Barack Obama has put millions of Americans on the poverty lists and food lines – It’s not that Obama has destroyed millions of jobs and has repeatedly lied to the American public… Americans are angry because they’re racist, Lee.
PIERS MORGAN: Lee, do you think that America is a more or less racist country since Barack Obama became president?
LEE DANIELS, director, producer, “The Butler”: Wow, that’s a powerful question. I think that people are angry that he’s president, and I think that they’re showing their true colors. And I think that – I think that, you know, when Danny Strong wrote those words, “Any black man can be killed by any white man and get away with it,” Trayvon Martin had not happened. I end the movie with hope, you know. He’s walking down and Obama’s giving that famous speech, you know? And then I come out of my edit room and Trayvon Martin has happened. So yeah, I think so – sadly I think so.
