    Yep...Denzel Washington stepped into a Crap Storm....he actually told the truth about the problems in not only black communities, but in all communities with violent and other crime....

    Denzel Washington to Black America: Stop Blaming the Prison System, 'It Starts at Home'

    “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,” the Academy Award-winner told reporters at the Dan Gilroy-directed film’s New York premiere, the New York Daily News reports.

    “So you know I can’t blame the system. It’s unfortunate that we make such easy work for them,” Washington said.

    Denzel is too popular for Democrats or Hollywood to railroad him. So this will quickly be swept under the rug unfortunately. But kudos to Denzel Washington for having the guts to state the truth. Maybe others will find their courage.

    It's the simplistic right wing "view" of things that always means they're right and therefore they don't need to actually deal with any of the problems.

    So you are saying Denzel is simple minded? Strange, he seems to be doing rather well for himself?

    Sometimes there is a thin line between dealing with problems and enabling.

    I like Denzel but his opinion is nothing more than a layman's opinion on a very complex subject.

    And I've been. handing out sound suppresors to reduce the sound of drummers making unnecessary noise. Although the black community has been projected in the media as a bastion of crime, disease and poverty, that is NOT the case. 75% of blacks live above the poverty level and a relatively few are criminals. Denzel may not be aware of that.
    He might also be oblivious of the ongoing opiod epidemic and suicide cases that are sweeping the Euro-American communities.
    Perhaps you need to move your drum to a more suburban location and change the beat to one that highlights the ills among your own people.
