By the time this film reaches its climax, most viewers should be well aware that they have seen a complex film about a complex subject, and I, for one, do not find it racist at all, from any of the possible "racist" angles.

Spike Lee probably gets the most screen time as he acts within his own film and the title could refer to many things, but most likely its the action Lees character Mookie takes at the films climax.

Unlike a lot of films about racism , it doesn't try and show you the path to preventing it : instead it shows what happens when it's not resolved and when it escalates.
