Wow! Chris Rock just ended racism!
December 5, 2014 - Universe
Chris Rock is normally known for his funny jokes about race and relationships. But this week, the comedian went a little farther: he ended racism once and for all!
In his interview with Frank Rich, he started off by making a few powerful and insightful comments about race relations in America. Then, he took out his sword, stabbed it into the abdomen of racism, and twisted until America’s oldest social problem coughed up blood.
“To say Obama is progress is saying that he’s the first black person that is qualified to be president. That’s not black progress. That’s white progress,” Rock said in his brutal putdown where he, let’s be honest, basically grabbed the innards from sword-stabbed racism’s body. “Let’s hope America keeps producing nicer white people.”
Then, later in the week, Rock published a blistering critique of Hollywood’s race problem. Rock wasn’t taking any prisoners. He basically took the guts that he grabbed from racism’s punctured abdomen and wore them around his neck like a prayer shawl, taunting racism as it bled out and yelling “Can you smell what Chris Rock’s cooking?”
“[Hollywood] is a white industry,” Rock wrote in the same essay where he called LA a “slave state” for Mexicans. Racism wasn’t getting up from this one. You had to feel bad for racism. Man, you don’t want to get on Rock’s bad side. Racism did and Rock put an end to it once and for all!
