[VIDEO] Denzel Washington Gave Remembering Answer To Foolish Reporter’s QuestionNews Source:https://goo.gl/8By8eBHollywood often looks like one big “echo chamber” of same ideas, so it’s easy to dismiss every good actor as a liberal shill, but from time to time an A-list name says something surprisingly wise.Denzel Washington, the Academy Award winner, during a press event for the movie “Fences” was cornered by a reporter, but he gave him piece of him mind.“Just wondering who you wound up supporting in the election and why?” asked journalist Nicholas Ballasy while on the red carpet.Washington politely tried to get the conversation back to the movie he is promoting, but the reporter persisted. Than Denzel answered:“None of your business!”The reported mindless started to press the actor on hi political views. “What issue do you hope president-elect Trump tackles? What’s number one, in your mind, with the new administration?”He said: “I don’t know,” “You know, I’d have to be more informed to just say off the top of my head the number one issue.”This amazing answer was aimed at the celebrities who talk all day about political issues, but now nothing about the complex topics.Then the reporter asked: “Right now, under President Obama, over the last eight years, in your mind… have race relations improved under his leadership?”Other celebrities would immediately jump to applauded Obama but Denzel chose different approach.“Race relationships have to do with race relationships,” he said, implying that the president had little to do with the topic.“You’re white, or whatever you are, and I’m black, or whatever I am — we’re standing here talking now,” Washington added. “That’s how we get things done.”Denzel continued. “You can’t legislate love. The president of the United States can’t legislate us into liking each other,” he stated. “We have to step forward and ask questions about each other and engage.”“There’s no law that says, oh because I’m president, you all gotta get along now,” the actor said. “So it’s up to us.”Even though this happened mounts ago the message told by the actor is still very relevant.Denzel reminded us that Obama it’s the one responsible for making race changes, we are, the real progress happens at personal level starting with a handshake and conversation.Please share this post on Facebook if you agree with Denzel Washington.What is your opinion on this?
