Beyoncé & Solange at 2014 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival (April 12th, 2014)
Some things I like here: One, I think Denzel’s story shows how powerful institutions (like Hollywood) can perpetuate racism in the name of comedy. Two, Denzel himself shows how people can make the call to turn down the big payout for the big picture. That’s a tough call to make; it’s not a choice everyone has, but, damn, I’m glad Denzel did. Three, Denzel is so ridiculously Denzel, I can’t even.
I didn’t think it was possible, but my respect level for Denzel just went up about 100 times. Not every job is worth accepting.
