Hollywood director Spike Lee compared black Trump supporters praying for the president to house slaves.

“Massa, We Love You Massa. We Gonna Pray Fo’ You Massa, Singing- “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot,” the BlacKkKlansman director posted to Instagram earlier this week in response to a photo taken in the White House.

The Cabinet Room meeting, which took place last week as part of a Black History Month celebration, was attended by actor Isaiah Washington, boxing champion Andre Berto, former NFL player Jack Brewer, author Candace Owens, conservative personalities Diamond & Silk, and others.

“In every field, every generation, and every calling, African-Americans have lifted up our nation to new heights — and, like all citizens, you are entitled to a government that puts your needs, your interests, and your families first,” Trump said at the meeting.

A poll released in February shows Trump with 22% support from registered black voters, which is a significant increase from the 8% he received in 2016.

Trump and Lee have clashed in the past, most notably following the director’s speech while accepting the best adapted screenplay Oscar for BlacKkKlansman.
