Denzel Washington: Upbringing and lack of father figures, not criminal justice system, are to blame for so many young men in jail

Denzel Washington: Speaking his mind


Ruh roh…Denzel gonna be in major trouble with the proggies.
According to Wikipedia, Denzel is a Christian and an independent voter who supported Obama in 2008. Appears he is not one to be devoted to the progressive narrative.
From Daily Mail: Denzel Washington says upbringing and a lack of father figures are to blame for many young men ending up in jail.
The Oscar winner, 62, was speaking at the premiere of his latest film, Roman J. Israel, Esq., in which he stars as an idealistic defense attorney whose life is upended when his partner, the firm’s front man, dies.
Asked if the film made him feel more cynical about the justice system, the star replied: ‘It starts at home.’
Speaking to NY Daily News, he added: ‘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.’
In an earlier interview, the actor touched upon some of his own experiences growing up.
‘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 told Reuters.
Washington, recalling some of the people he grew up with, added: ‘By the time we got to 13, 14, different things happened.
‘Now I was doing just as much as they were, but they went further… I just didn’t get caught, 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.

What a refreshing change from the usual victimhood-racism narrative. Denzel Washington is based!

I got some sobering new for you Doctor E and I don’t want you to think I’m trolling you or trying to mock you. Please don’t be upset with me, I’ve been following this site regularly for years. This is hard for me to do but you should know that Denzel is more likely then not a FTM transgender, most of the movie stars are. There’s at least one You Tube video that makes a very convincing argument for this being the case with Denzel. People need to be told the truth….

Women who have had both advanced surgeries and are taking testosterone hormone injections make very convincing men. Don’t feel bad for being snookered, it happens to all of us my friend. Mark Twain said, “it’s easier to fool people then it is to convince them that they’ve been fooled.” Sloped shoulders, short arms, waist intent that appears to be above the naval, vertical forhead, no brow ridges, no deep set eyes. Denzel is almost assuredly a FTM. In absence of a chromosome test it’s not confirmable but you should brose the You Tube video on Denzel and other celebrities and… Read more »

There are transgendered people out there fooling people every day, people that they interact with personally too. How to you know who’s a transgender and who isn’t merely by hearing their voice? The notion that you can identify a persons gender by their voice is preposterous, some transgender individuals are famous singers and radio personalities….Howard Stern, Dolly Parton, Joey Ramone, Cher, Barbara Streisand, Gwen Steffani, Rod Stewart…..just to name a few, I could go on…

Right on! Bruce Jenner was once a many Olympian decathlon good medalist. Back in 76 nobody would have believed what he became 40 years later.

You could smell Denzel and identify gender, you are either a bloodhound or you don’t believe a woman could splash herself with Old Spice before attending a Lakers game.

You can identity a persons gender by smell? I’d like too see you blindfolded and led past a line of 50 men mixed in with 50 women tagging each one’s gender as you pass them……

It’s not just a You Tube video, it’s photographic evidence with a fairly objective scientific analysis.

They do the operations and hormone therapies too very young children in some cases. That he played football in his youth means nothing furthermore more if you really want to get into it you should take a close look at Tom Brady who is one of the best quarterbacks of all time and that thing he’s married to named Giselle…. Have a look and that video! One more thing about Denzel, he had assymetrical pectorals, only females have assymetrical breast tissue. Nature born men have symmetrical chests!

These photographs are proof of nothing, the football picture might be photo shop as it looks like the Michelle Obama football uniform picture that was circulated on the net years ago.

If he’s 62, remember the (surgical) transgendering of children is a very recent thing.

I agree with you DCG, he is a man and aways has been. He fathered four beautiful children that look like him.

Question for Patrick Cornell:
Is there anyone in Hollywood whom you don’t think is transgender?

The quality of ones upbringing, and the examples set by the adults and extended family around you make a difference when it comes to the choices everyone makes. Absent fathers seems to have become a cultural norm within the black community more so than any others.

Yes, absolutely. Having a “nuclear family” and Church make a world of difference. A person’t standards depend on others to a degree. One must know that they are not alone in this world and must respect those around them. There is a serious lack of regard for others these days. When I grew up all of my relatives, neighbors and even complete strangers helped raise me. Adults did not hesitate to discipline a child if he or she was misbehaving. My parents worried about being embarrassed if my behavior wasn’t representative of my upbringing. I was told repeatedly not to… Read more »

AGREE LO! My dad was oldest of 11 living kids in his family….my mom, oldest of 4 girls, w/3 nephews that her mom & dad took in to raise after their dad died very young. We lived in a rural farm community, all of us associated w/our tiny, rural churches (where people KNEW if you missed a Sunday), & attached to a nearby University system–where, if you didn’t farm, you worked at the University—or both! I guarantee you that, if I’d have EVER behaved poorly in school, my teacher would NOT have even had to “call home.” One of my… Read more »

DCG—I have 11 cousins on my mom’s side from her sisters….plus the same amt. from the 3 boys my grandparents took in to raise….and then, on my dad’s side from all of his siblings, there are 25 cousins. I have to keep charts sometimes b/c my grandfther’s surviving brothers (9) all had families of 10 or 11, too…….so, we had really HUGE family reunions and,even tho’ all our elders are gone now, & there are no huge reunions anymore, I still keep contact with some of my father’s cousin’s kids from those sunny days of my memories …….(are they my… Read more »

I used to think that my father had a spy network. If I did something that I shouldn’t, invariably a neighbor would tell a relative and by the time my father got home from work I would hear all about it. One advantage to this was that, if I was having a hard time with my father or mother, I could go to an aunt or uncle. Sometimes they would play “intermediary”. We all did that for each other. I can only remember a couple of times where a teacher of mine talked to my parents about something I did… Read more »

Absolutely! I’ve maintained as teacher for decades that I, alone, can not surmount the deficiences at home and elsewhere in a student’s life.I have had some small “victories” that made me keep on teaching…through thick and thin. But, even in the face of the reality that THIS problem (bad home life, poor nutrition, poor medical care—EVEN IF AVAILABLE—-ie____ I routinely have kids show me their pus-filled crusted scabs from skateboard or bike accidents of a week or 2 duration…could have been cleaned & bandaged at home when it happened……and ask me or the school nurse to take care of it—even… Read more »

Denzel is one of the good guys. He hasn’t been connected to philandering around. He is a huge military supporter and has even taken his children on some of his meetings with members. Always one of my favorites. A truly classy guy.

He seems to have his head on straight-lucky he’s a top notch actor-it’s hard going for Conservative actors in Hollyweird. His acting skills are making him a “necessary evil” there;they’d rather boot him out,but he’s too good to risk losing. LOL-I’ll bet he gives the LibTard higher-ups ulcers as they try to figure out their best plays…..

Colin Kaepernick needs to have a talk with Denzel. The only thing I can figure out about Kaepernick is he had a Father who was white and he lived a privileged life and now he is mad at those folks and calls that racial injustice cause he didn’t have a black Father. Isn’t that the same thing Obama always struggled with?
Some times you just can’t ever get a break in life.

Progressivism and a leftist muslim girlfriend (plus that he’s not the greatest ball player) did that for Kaepernick– otherwise, he wouldn’t have more fun being “woke” than throwing touchdowns.

I’m very happy to hear this! I always thought Denzel had a quality that his peers in Hollywood were greatly lacking. He’s a great actor, he’s smart, and has a strong moral compass. And last but not least, he’s very handsome. ?

It’s not just about one characteristic like a fat belly, it’s about the sum total of several feminine characteristics, the vertical for head, the sloping shoulders, the short arms, the weak jawline and double chin, the wide hips, the lack of brow ridges and deep set eyes……Denzel exhibits nearly all physical characteristics indicative of a female.

You obviously haven’t seen Denzel in the films he did before he was 40 or 50 years old, when most of us end up getting “soft”. He had wide, square shoulders, a strong jawline, long strong arms, no double chin, and I couldn’t really say if he had Neanderthal brow ridges and eyes or not, but don’t see that as making a man more or less manly. BTW, the sloped forehead is what you see in less-developed cavemen as well. Seriously. He’s a good Christian man. He and his sister were on the 700 Club years ago (or “Praise the… Read more »

Denzel says it himself: “It has just as much to do with fathers not being in their lives as it has to do with any system.” And he is absolutely correct that fathers are ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL to ANY child’s best formation. But look at what we have: We are STUCK with a system that destroys peoples’ lives for a marijuana cigarette; There are over one and a half million people in jail who, in all honesty, do not belong there. It also must be said that we are stuck in a Culture of Death in which men are debased and… Read more »
