The awards were so great! I had such a hard time tearing myself from Reckless on CBS to watch them though.

Actually, most of Chris Rock’s jokes are self-deprecating towards black people. But yes, much of his humor is race driven. If you don’t care for that don’t watch.

He is a talented guy but it is too bad all he builds his act on is his hatred for white people. It is getting old, time for new material, leave the white folk alone they don’t have the same freedom to make fun of black folk with out being called racist which CR is. How about making fun of your own for a change. Lots of material to work with there.

Chris asked the question, What is BET? Everyone knows the Oscars and blacks know BET but does everyone else? Chris Rock is not racist. You are just another V taking this shit to another level. If he is that racist he wouldn’t have made a comment about his woman being around black basketball players too. HILLARIOUS!! Now go break through the barriers that Chris Rock had too. My bad, you don’t have struggles because your WHITE obviously!!! What white joke did he say to oftend you? He was saying everything every black person wanted to hear when it came to Black Entertainers. That’s why we have BET and you all have abc, nbc, cbs. Wait for the BORING OSCARS R GRANNIES.LOL

why do people always put it this way: when a white person is being a racist, he’s just a kid give him time he should grow, blah blah it was a mistake, and now that its chris time to spit the fuck out, he’s being a racist, where’s this coming from?? Justin bieber is a racist not chris…

I’m sorry, but Chris Rock is a racist. Every joke was a dig against white people. It’s really not cool at all. The funny thing is, being a white guy… it can be considered racist for me to even point out that *HE* is being racist by doing this. His humor is ugly and cheap and I think it detracts from the BET Awards to have him up there. Certainly the humor that can be employed by the host can have more to do with what’s actually funny than the color of someone’s skin.

Part of the harmful outlook here is viewing some things as primarily white or black functions. If someone at what black people deem as a primarily white function (such as the Oscars mentioned in the article) were to have made jokes of the nature that Chris did on BET there would have been repercussions in the media for WEEKS.

It’s a disgrace… purely a disgrace, I’m sorry. Delete my comment if you like, but Chris’ monologue was disgusting.

“Every joke was a dig against white people. It’s really not cool at all.” Really? At least be honest. When you say things like “every joke” you immediately, remove the opportunity to have an honest discourse on the topic. His routine was approximately 8 minutes. The first 5 minutes had two “white jokes” although they were really more of a statement of fact. White people were generally mean to Jackie Robinson and white artists tended to borrow black music and recreate it for themselves. I guess you could call those jokes racial but racist seems overly sensitive. The jokes about Kevin Hart, Jay-Z, Rick Ross, and black athletes were hilarious but different strokes for different folks I guess.
But at the end of the day, it’s comedy, and comedians do what they have to for a laugh.
