Didn’t Denzel say he’d never kiss another white woman ever again out of respect for his wife and his black sisters out their? It was around the time he won his Oscar and Julia Roberts presented it to him. She tried to kiss him and he kind of did the hug thing and let her kiss him on the cheek. Don’t get me wrong I used to like him. Until he pulled the race card. He’s allowed to say that against white women. Isn’t that being racist.

@Sarah – What is the big deal it ain’t like he said the c word or anything else everybody has and preference he is just one of the few black men will actually admit he loves his sisters and only the sisters he was not being racist, he didn’t say anything bad about white women its just a preference.

# 3

Tiana, it is a big deal. Because if, for example, Hugh Jackman said he would only kiss white women, out of respect for them, there would be such an uproar and claims of racism!

# 4

@Tiana: The big deal is if a white man said it he would be called a racist and probably wouldn’t get acting jobs after a remark like that.

# 5

look its all about acting nothing more!

# 6

He should get the Oscar for the most overrated affirmative action case.
Who the hell could watch 120 minutes of that ugly face on a big screen.
I couldn’t watch 120 seconds of it.

@sarah: you clearly didn’t watch FLIGHT because he was kissing and all over a white actress

@offtheproperty: mmm go back to your lonely life

@JOJO: No I didn’t watch it because I stopped watching his movie’s after he made the comment. If he did kiss a white woman, guess he changed his mind. Why, because of $$$$$$$

Denzel looks very old..Robert is better looking than him.

Actually, JLO should have been nominated for the best Affirmative Action case on record. Only she is so awful at acting and singing they couldn’t bring themselves to give her anything except a one way ticket out of Hollywood. They gave the award to that ugly witch Sonia Sotomayor who barely graduated from high school and went to school on Affirmative Action. They should have nominated a Cuban instead.

@sarah:

It’s actually not racist.

He doesn’t kiss white women for a role because he recognizes his own role within the black community. Very few black actors reach the level of fame and critical acclaim that Denzel has. The only other comparable actor is Will Smith, and when was the last time you saw him with a black woman playing his love interest/companion? (and no Rosario Dawson doesn’t count, not because she doesn’t have black in her, but because HW tends to choose the lightest or “whitest”, black woman when they do decide to give them a prominent role).

Denzel is a role model to his brothers and sisters and he is well aware of that. He chooses to be portrayed in a certain light because that is the impression that he wants to leave for the community that has supported him and will continue to support him throughout his career. Long before Denzel was a academy-award winner he was a young actor that received most of his fanfare and attention from black women. So his choice to not kiss white women on camera is not one born out of hate for that race. Instead it is pride for his own race and intelligence enough to know that you don’t bite the hand that feeds you.

Denzel is not only a role model for the way a brother should act but he is also a role model for the type of man a sister should be looking for.

Hollywood writers and directors cast major roles for opposite white woman because they have mass appeal from being more identifiable to the majority of people watching. It doesn’t make those same writers and directors racist or make the people watching racist either.

PS @JOJO

The actress in Flight is actually Latina. So I believe he still hasn’t kissed a white woman on screen lol.
