Denzel Washington Just Said Four Words That Have Liberal Twitter Losing It

In an interview on his latest film, “Roman J. Israel, Esq.”, actor Denzel Washington said four words that have liberals up in arms—”it starts at home,” (via BizPacReview).

“It starts at the home,” Washington said. “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.”

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

Washington elaborated on his opinion in a second interview, in which he discussed the lack of father figures within many black communities.

“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.

The film that Washington’s currently promoting features “an idealistic defense attorney whose beliefs are tested when he joins a new firm,” according to BizPacReview.

The film’s director, Dan Gilroy, expressed a sentiment popular in the racial grievance industry, telling Reuters the United States criminal justice system is inherently racist.

“Our prison system needs reform at a fundamental level,” Gilroy said. “We have the highest incarceration rate of any place in the Western world. … It’s not racially equal, it’s not socio-economically equal.”

Responses from liberals on Twitter indicated that they weren’t too pleased with Washington’s recent interviews:
