personnally i dont think denzel is better and yes i am 100% field negro black...but i dont think its fair for yall dudes just to say all black people voted for him simply because they are black as if black people are savages who dont know any better and just go by what looks like them and as if white people are so beyond that and above of voting in one of their own because they know better and they are such a evolved and prestige race
its the same thing with other things as well...this may be off topic but it ties in with the topic so pleasee hear me out...me and my white co-workers were talking boxing..i said i like floyd mayweather and they said "just because he is black" and i said why is it that mexicans can like oscar and asians can like manny and puerto ricans can like cotto and nobody will never point a finger at them but when somebody black likes another black person they would say "oh your just doing it becasue they are black"...same thing with black people being accused of voting in obama...i dont know...either way we shouldnt discredit other peoples views simply because we dont like the outcome...and if you dont get it f**k you and your unborn seeds
nobody's acting like whites are superior or anything like that, it has to do with Robert's filmography vs Denzel's. Lemme put it this way, it would be like saying some new kid comes along and they automatically start sayin oh he's gonna be better than Michael Jordan, cuz MJ is that standard in basketball. In my, and alotta ppl's eyes, Robert De Niro is the standard in acting. His filmography is incredible, yea he's fallen off now and ppl are getting the present confused with ALL of his work. His acting resume is untouchable. Denzel is a great actor, and has recently come into his prime with the roles he picks and pursues. I like Denzel a lot, but to say he's a better actor than Robert or has a better career than Robert is f**king insulting to movie fans. Not even Denzel himself would say he's better than Bob, and that's the main point me and smokeweed101 are trying to make here. We aren't on some "blacks stick with blacks" s**t but when you got dudes actually saying Denzel makes better films than Bob, you gotta wonder why they're saying that. It's either 1 of 2 things, and that's they're black and they ride behind Denzel because he's black more because he's an established black actor that gets respect from all races, or 2 they don't really know Bob's movies and form a dumb a.ss opinion without ever really seeing his movies. I'm a fan of both actors, but it's not a coincidence that Bob has been in some of the most praised movies since the history of cinema. Denzel can't say the same.
and if I came off as thinking "oh they ALL just voted for him cuz he's black" then that's my poor choice of wording. It had more to do with ppl not really seeing Bob's films and making a blind judgment call than them sticking behind Denzel cuz he's black. But it does make you wonder why ppl choose who they choose when they are saying Denzel is a better actor though...
