Appearing as a guest on Thursday’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on NBC, comedian Chris Rock alluded to the Mormon Church’s controversial history on race from several decades ago as he asserted that “Mitt Romney’s crew” had “believed black people were the devil until 1978.” Rock:
What’s going on? Okay, I just heard this the other day. The Mormons, Mitt Romney’s crew, they believed black people were the devil until 1978. I’m not making this up. Right, right, right? Read more: here
Referring to Pres. Barack Hussein Obama he said:
ROCK: I’ll take the zebra. You know, in honor of our zebra president. You know?
ROCK: I sounded like George. I love you our president but, you know, he’s black and white.
ROCK: He appeals to all, and that’s what I’m goin’ for. You know, we ignore the president’s whiteness, but it’s there. (here )
Let’s just switched that around and see how amusing it remains. Picture any white comedian referring to Obama as a “zebra” . . . and continuing by saying, “you know, we ignore the president’s BLACKNESS, but it’s there”.
The vast majority of white American’s don’t carry around a chip on their shoulder, waiting with anticipation, to be offended but such a jackass comment. Sadly, way too many black’s in this nation appear to just that. White people also don’t go into a hyperbolic- offense mode when we hear jerks racist comments about ‘white people’. We simply realize they’re racist jerks and move along.
But liberals, who are concerned about appearing not to be racist, giggle, laugh and smile when racist jokes are made about white people. Whereas, the same where said about black folks, they’d stand up screaming, “racist!!” and demand an execution. All to give themselves ‘dispensation’ from being thought of as ‘racist’.
The truth is, they’re probably racist to some degree. But what they definitely are – are jerks.
There a many blacks who not only tolerate such bigoted jokes and slurs against and about white people, but partake in it. Many are elected officials like Cong. Shelia J. Lee, Maxine Waters. Even Pres. Obama has expressed racial biased in remarks and deeds, as has AG Eric Holder. Unacceptable. And it feeds into racial divide, just as it was interned to do.
So, who exactly who are the New Racist of America? It appears to be black people. Not all of course. Herman Cain is a respected and respectful man, at least when it comes to be thoughtful to people regardless of race. Another is Judge Clarence Thomas, who makes wonderful, intelligent speeches and asserts unbiased opinions … all without degrading any other race of people.
But comedians, actors, etc. like Chris Rock have come out from under the rock, to run with racial slurs against white people. And dare I say, these are the same white people who have made them rich beyond their dreams. But these people have shown themselves to be idiots. Idiots for thinking slandering a race of people because of skin tone is not just acceptable (because they’re black), but funny. Rock mocks Romney (for something he had nothing to do with) while he himself, speaks like a racist. What irony.
They’re not funny, they’re just proud of getting away with their bigotry and racism. “I have a dream that …. they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” Chris Rock must choose to believe that only applies to black folks. Not all folks.
