As far as Spike Lee goes I don't really care what he does. I am more concerned that there is a significant uproar over something like this.
The "they could train a monkey to do this job" interpretation is yours, but it's obviously not an interpretation that's shared by others.

It's my opinion, that regardless of the intent of the artist, whether your interpretation was the intent of the comic, the artist should have had some foresight, and thought how this was going to be interpretated.

Just my two lincolns.

Later.
