"Like this?"

hand gun in at post-production."

Get back on the liberal plantation, Denzel, or you’ll never work again.

Single black motherhood is a profession now, sponsored by the state. Then when the kids become age 18 the girls franchise out and the boys go to prison.

Anomalies to that formula are outliers. The whole sad project creates a very labor intensive state bureaucracy which grows the size and scope of government, which is the goal.

Good for Denzel.

I used to have a crush on him years ago. (Strangely lost it while watching Training Day... )

Denzel has earned his Oscars, he has already made his millions. Denzel can pick up the fight for black self empowerment that Bill Cosby had to leave undone, due to certain ‘distractions’. Say it loudly, Denzel, again and again! Before the mass media decides to shut you down or ignore you, there is a chance you will be a positive influence to a few ambitious minority people.

That’s one of the most powerful and well written comments I’ve read on this site.

Now watch one of the professional Big Baby Complainers, such as LeBron James start making fun of Denzel’s conservative views. “Oh, Denzel must wanna be one of Trumps’ “Boys”!”

Good to hear from Denzel.

He can say these things because he’s black. If any of us white people say this, we would be condemned as racist.

His best flick, imho.

But yes, he plays a very unlikable character.

I absolutely loved him in “Man on Fire”. Such a brilliant actor.

It is nice to see that he is willing to state that little black boys need a good male role model to grow up with virtue. It is true, but we saw what happened when Bill Cosby stated the same thing and left that welfare, socialist, plantation that blacks are not allowed to leave. Cosby’s only son was viciously killed and the Deep State’s little orgy parties on tapes/photos are locked in their safe to force compliance so they go back onto their plantation or they are made irrelevant and despised by their fan base. The Left controls all perceptions through MSM, Hollywood, textbooks, art, and literature.

The elites allowed slavery to end, but they created a more devastating type of slavery—socialism/welfare— where the soul is destroyed, so virtue can never exist. Without virtue, there is no freedom possible. (Aristotle).

Man on Fire is his best.....IMHO. But he is great in a lot of movies even with inferior scripts.

I wish rational high profile voices from the black community would collaborate with a national tour to our most afflicted cities. Unfortunately the really successful black people I know refuse to mentor or develop those who could do so much better. They enjoy the benefit of standing tall on the shoulders of others beneath them.

It’s unfortunate that we make such easy work for them”
If that was a white actor’s quote...agh what the hell.
Nothing will ever be black AND white.
