Denzel Once Turned Down A Movie Role So Racist He Thinks It Could Have Changed His Career

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.
