In a recent interview that is sure to have liberal lefty brains exploding in unison, Academy Award winner Denzel Washington suggested that all eyes should be turned towards the home when looking at black incarceration.
The actor recently told the New York Daily News…
“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. So, you know, I can’t blame the system. It’s unfortunate that we make such easy work for them.”
Mr. Washington’s comments were made during a press junket for his just-released film, “Roman J. Israel, Esq.,” which is about a lawyer, the law and America’s system of justice. The movie didn’t do so well over the Thanksgiving weekend, which is not surprising considering the competition included a big family draw (“Coco”) and a DC Comics superhero draw (“Justice League”).
At any rate, what real-life moms and dads say about family is far more compelling that any Hollywood script.
