Spike Lee complained that Eastwood showed no "blacks" in either of his films, "Flags of Our Fathers" or "Letters from Iwo Jima".

Clint responded, "a guy like that should shut his face".

sounds like Clint knows his time is near, so he's saying things that aren't too PC and that he probably wouldn't have said 30 years ago.
