  • Ron and Patrice strike power poses in Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman

As Spike Lee preps for the release of his forthcoming film BlacKkKlansman, the acclaimed film director recently spoke with TIME magazine about the movie, America's current political climate, and why he ended up using numerous videos from the Charlottesville rally past year as the ending to BlacKkKlansman.

Lee's movie BlacKkKlansman details the story about the first African American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department.

Trump past year drew broad criticism for blaming both sides for the violence and news footage of the protests is included in the film. Stallworth also did something few people would believe a black man could do: In the late 1970s, he managed to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan, the white extremist hate group.

Maribor coach Darko Milanic admitted Rangers had turned the tables on his side in the second half with a dominant display. Moore's men had earmarked the player as a target as they look to push for an immediate Premier League return this season.

"He wanted to talk about the fact that he's concerned about how he's going to be portrayed in this film", Stallworth said alongside Lee during an interview with NBC's Nightly News host Lester Holt. "This film shouldn't be more timely now than when it takes place, but unfortunately it is", Grace said.

The New York Times called it "a furious, funny, blunt and brilliant confrontation with the truth".
