Classic American Cinema. Film perfectly captured the phone book thick racial tension of late 80's, early 90's NYC.

Couldn't agree more. It's a high point Lee hasn't come close to reaching again (despite a few more-than-decent attempts) in the two decades since.

Concerning the racial tension, I guess it was a true observation but I kind of remember the dramatic line of the film was rather weak.

But how can someone of the official press be against it, for fear of being uncorrect?...

Think about it!
