Liberals are going to be pissed. Hollywood royal Denzel Washington just ripped apart the Black Lives Matter reasoning infecting the left. Law enforcement isn’t destroying the black community, drug addiction and unsteady family relationships are.
“It starts at the home. It starts at home. It starts with how you raise your children. If a young man doesn’t have a father figure, he’ll go find a father figure,” Washington said.
Millennials are used to being coddled. It’s not unusual for young Americans to blame everything but themselves for their problems. Liberals WANT “the man” to be the cause of all social ills. Celebrities who are willing to acknowledge the truth as bluntly as Washington are in the minority.
“So you know I can’t blame the system. It’s unfortunate that we make such easy work for them… I grew up with guys who did decades (in prison), and it had as much to do with their fathers not being in their lives as it did to do with any system,” continued Washington.
“I just didn’t get caught, but they kept going down that road and then they were in the hands of the system… But it’s about the formative years. You’re not born a criminal.”
The BLM protesters rage in the streets against the evils of police aggression, but they have nothing to say about the black-on-black violence that’s tearing apart African American communities.
Washington, 62, is one of the few modern celebrities that’s managed to avoid being involved in a scandal. Search his name and Google and nothing salacious pops up. Yet he hasn’t been forgotten. He’s still an A-list movie star.
Denzel Washington said "don't blame the prison system it starts at home" and y'all mad at him? I'm confused
