‘The Butler’ Director: Americans More Racist Under Obama – “They’re Showing Their True Colors” (Video)
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.
