In the midst of America being rocked by the Parkland school shooting that took the lives of 17 people, Chris Rock released a comedy special on Netflix where he told what he considers a joke, but is really just a disgusting display of racism and bad character.
Somewhere alongside tired George W. Bush jokes and saying God makes mistakes because “look at Mississippi,” he dropped this line.
“I want to live in a world with real equality,” said Rock during his special. “I want to live in a world where an equal amount of white kids are shot every month. I want to see white mothers on TV crying.”
Even without the Parkland shooting as a backdrop, this inexcusable. That Rock would actually wish death and subsequent grief on people because of the color of their skin is racism reserved for the radicals that engage in identity activism.
Tragically, Rock got his wish, and children died with mothers still shedding tears even now. How does he feel?
According to TMZ, he doesn’t seem to have anything to say about it. A journalist asked him the question of whether or not people are being too sensitive over his joke. Instead of saying they weren’t, and that his joke wasn’t meant to be realized, he completely ignored the journalist and kept on walking.
I’m not sure when horrible racism became “comedy” for some people, but if you were to swap out white for any other color, there would protests in the streets. However, Rock wanted to see white children dead.
Well, he got his wish. Congratulations you increasingly irrelevant pile of filth.
I’m not sure what to add here. Rock’s racism, wish for murder, crying mothers, and dismissal of the incident when his joke manifested says pretty much everything.
