    So significant was his role in the classic that was Do The Right Thing. Who knew the atmosphere in a film over 20 years ago would be the sky we live under today? A very diverse,very talented actor who worked with some of the greats in film. Thank you,Bill. You were appreciated.

    Damn. Peace brother. Same problems we complained about back then, we’re still going through today. And those same problems we were complaining about years before the movie was made.
