Spike Lee: I support Jason Collins

Filmmaker Spike Lee talks with Anderson Cooper about the reaction to NBA player Jason Collins coming out. Lee believes the push for gay rights started with the Civil Rights Movement. He thinks Collins will get respect from the league and set an example for  others, but he may not be accepted by everyone in the African American community.

    I like you Spike but you need to check your facts. The civil rights movement did not come before women's rights movement. Also, "rights movements" are not new. Here's an old one, Moses said "Let my people go".
