Spike Lee goes on a passionate rant about the harm he sees gentrification ("Christopher Columbus Syndrome") inflicting upon black neighborhoods in New York. "You can't discover this! We been here. You just can't come and bogart," he told an audience Tuesday at the Pratt Institute in Fort Greene, Brooklyn (where he grew up). "I don't see a lot of good coming from gentrification for the people living in those neighborhoods," he added. "It's a scam!"
