Denzel Washington Blames Absentee Fathers – Not The Justice System

Denzel Washington isn’t taking the easy route the grandstanding kneeling NFL players have. He sees a lack of personal responsibility for bad decisions as a major

The disgruntled field thugs of the NFL could learn a valuable lesson if they would accept responsibility for their own actions and acknowledge the fact that others have to do the same. Maybe they could even help spread that message, that we’re not owed anything by anybody, and that participating in criminal activities is a choice made by individuals for themselves.

In making the point that blaming the system, white people and police is a cop out, Denzel Washington might be hurting the sensitive feeling of more than a few of the whiny social justice agitators. The NFL field thugs, academics, anti-American Democrats with their hands extended palm up, and the safe zone snowflake might get offended but they also might just grow up and out of it as a result.

Speaking at the premier of his latest film, Roman J. Israel, Esq., in which is character is a defense attorney, Washington was asked by a reporter if the film made him feel more cynical about the justice system. Having none of it, Washington replied, “It starts at home.”

He went on to elaborate to the New York Daily News, saying, ‘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, “So you know I can’t blame the system. It’s unfortunate that we make such easy work for them.”

In an earlier interview, Washington told Reuters, “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.” He said, by the time we got to 13, 14, different things happened.”

Noting that he was pretty much on the same road they started out on and doing the same things they were, Washington identified the difference as being they continued with their criminal choices, going further. Washington also credited being lucky and not getting caught as a factor, saying, “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.”

6 Comments on Denzel Washington Blames Absentee Fathers – Not The Justice System

  1. Fred Price, in his church in Inglewood, said the same thing..men abdicating their role as father…he said it plain as day..

  2. Denzel also built w/ his own money : The Fisher House for wounded Vets and families at SAMMC Military Med Cntr in SA Tx for families to have housing next to rehabilitating loved one’s !

  3. I watch Denzel Washington’s movies because of the respect I have for this man. He doesn’t mince words when he speaks to those that ask questions believing he will support anyone of his race.

  4. Denzel Washington is, is right, and one of the few who is not a racist, kill whitey, BLM thug. He has always been a decent man and one of the few actors I support by watching his movies. He is also a great actor.

    Always have loved this guy, he’s solid Christian believer, married to the same woman for decades. I hope he doesn’t get destroyed for speaking the truth, so many do.

  6. And it’s not the absentee fathers to blame, but another part of “the system”: the ridiculous decision to pay single mothers to have babies on the taxpayer’s dime, over and over again. It’s one thing to help out an extant family on a temporary basis. It’s another thing entirely to create generational families on the dole.

    We could blame the Cloward-Piven Strategy for some of the blame-placing. But it comes down ultimately to pointing the finger at the U.S. public in general, for not insisting that such Marxist ‘solutions’ should have had no place in this country of independent citizens, not being beholden to the state for our wherewithal. We have been suckered into a terrible, terrible mess. Sometimes the sucker needs to blame him- or herself, for buying into the scam in the first place.

    Where do we go from here? Correct the basic problem: No more money to be paid to a female to have a baby on the taxpayer’s dime. Stop making it financially better for a female to have a baby or multiple babies without the father or fathers around. And thus depriving the adult male of one of the most civilizing influences that life has to offer: taking responsibility for the consequences of his actions, in helping to raise his offspring. And taking pride in the outcome.

    This all also involves sending the illegal aliens back to their home countries, and freeing those jobs up for U.S. citizens to fill. And as for the ‘argument’ that ‘Americans won’t do the jobs that the IAs do,’ the answer to that bleat is simple: They will if they want to eat.

    President Trump is on the right track. He needs more of our help, to Drain the Swamp. Speak up. Act up. Be a part of the solution. Not a part of the problem, any longer.
