Topics surrounding social and political issues have often made for great fodder among comedians and their standup routines. For Chris Rock, the decision to highlight current events in front of an audience is no different than news covered on political shows such as NBC’s “Meet The Press.”
The 49-year-old comedian-actor, who is currently promoting his forthcoming film, “Top Five,” recently shared his thoughts on how America deals with race relations during a candid interview with Vulture.
“When we talk about race relations in America or racial progress, it’s all nonsense,” Rock admitted. “There are no race relations. White people were crazy. Now they’re not as crazy. To say that black people have made progress would be to say they deserve what happened to them before…So, 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.”
