However, in an interview on the TV program "Our World with Black Enterprise," Lee cautioned blacks to keep expectations in check.
"I don't think there's going to be a president that's ever going to come into office and have this much mess -- eight years of mess -- to clean up," he said. "Black people have got to relax. Don't expect that because brotherman is in there the first thing he has to do is start addressing every little thing that deals with us. Give the brotherman some time -- chill. I mean, he's not just going to be the president of the United States of Negroes; it's not like that. (He's going to be president) of the United States of America -- everybody."
Lee, who is promoting his new movie, "Miracle at St. Anna," declined to speculate on the possibility that Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., might win the Nov. 4 election.
"I can't talk about it because it's not going to happen," he said. "I'm not thinking that way. Nov. 5 -- all over the world it's going to be a better day."
