25 years ago Spike Lee made a film. It was called Do The Right Thing. Towards the end of the film a character that we know as Radio Raheem was harassed, strangled and murdered by the police. The murder in this fictional film strangely resembles the recent murder of Staten Island man Eric Garner. Did Spike Lee have some divine powers that made it possible for him to predict the murder of Eric Garner or is the murder of black men by white America just so common that anyone could predict it?
