Denzel Washington is being slammed by progressives in Hollywood and Washington for his recent comments about the criminal justice system, the black community, and who is to blame.
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 … you know I can’t blame the system. It’s unfortunate that we make such easy work for them. – Denzel Washington
FOX News Channel’s Charles Payne, the host of Making Money with Charles Payne, reports that the mainstream media has “sliced and diced” Washington’s comments to fit its narrative, making it appear as though the actor has betrayed minorities. Watch the video for direct quotes like this from Washington:
Our prison system needs reform at a fundamental level … we have the highest incarceration rate of any place in the Western world … it’s not racially equal, it’s not socio-economically equal.
Political analyst, Amy Holmes joins Payne as they discuss how public figures like Denzel have been called every racial epitaph under the sun because they speak their mind.
Their discussion on the video is a must-see for anyone who has children. Both agree that the real problem crosses racial lines. Repeated studies show that a person who comes from a two parent home, graduates from high school and waits until they’re married to have children is dramatically less likely to ever face any sort of jail time.
