*Spike Lee released a short film showcasing police brutality with clips of the deaths of George Floyd and Eric Garner along with footage from his 1989, Oscar-nominated film “Do the Right Thing.”

Titled “Will History Stop Repeating Itself?,” Lee shared the video on Twitter, saying, “3 Brothers-Radio Raheem, Eric Garner And George Floyd.”

After the video originally debuted on CNN, Lee told Don Lemon, “We are seeing this again and again and again. This is the thing, the killing of black bodies, that is what this country is built upon.”

Lee’s 94-second spot concludes with the footage from the now-famous Floyd video with an onlooker telling Chauvin, “You just really killed that man.”
