I jiust saw that special where that black guy on Public Television looks up famous black peoples ancestors, going back to slavery days and tells them who they came from and who they are named after. Rock comes from a Black guy who was the first Black elected to the South Carolina Legislature----for real......guess his little brother didnt inherit that part of being a leader in the family. Getting all drunk and driving around like that at the witching hour----that is a complete dumb arse.

Course I wouldnt want Chris leading anything, not with that hatred towards people different than himself.

Are these people new? Is there anyone else in the US or Canada who doesn't know that drunk driving is against the law and will get you locked up? You so deserve whatever you get, Tony, but you don't get to make a joke about it.

wakeupwhitey, you really have no idea what it feels like to be racially abused. Chris Rock went to private school growing up, being the only black boy in his school, thus being abused racially by students as well as teachers. Almost all his teachers where racist towards him, and the ones who were not he has and does commend them for the time, patience and help they gave to him while attending that school,
White people have had thousands of years to build what they have, whereas blacks have only had 600 years, and had to start from scatch, there was no compensation, they could not give back what they have taken away but they could give blacks a head start, the sooner people realise the better of course there is gonna be a backlash of hatred comming from some people.

I find neither Rock very humorous, so let's move along, there's got to be a more famous person driving drunk somewhere....

ugh    

CHRIS ROCK IS A RACIST PIECE OF CRAP. WHY PEOPLE ALLOW HIM TO SPEW SUCH HATE IS BEYOND ME. IT'S NOT GOOD FOR ANYONE, WHITE OR BLACK.

IN HIS HBO SPECIAL HE ACTUALLY THINKS IT'S RACIST THAT HE HAS ONLY MARY J. BLIDGE AND RUSSELL SIMMONS IN HIS NEIGHBORHOOD, AND THEN HE HAS TO PUT UP WITH A WHITE GUY NEXT DOOR WHO IS A DENTIST. HE GOES ON A RANT ABOUT THE GUY BEING A DENTIST. WTF? IS HE ENCOURAGING PEOPLE NOT TO GO TO SCHOOL? OR IS IT JUST A GRIPE ABOUT LIVING BESIDE A WHITE GUY THAT EARNS HIS LIVING THROUGH ACTUALLY ----GOING TO SCHOOL----- TO LEARN A PROFESSION.
