White People’s Day: Was Chris Rock Really Offensive in Controversial July 4th Tweet?

white people's day chris rock

White People’s Day, as we reported earlier, has become the outrage du jour among some white people late this week — following a tweet comedian Chris Rock sent on July 4th, as Americans celebrated Independence Day.

Here’s what Chris Rock had to say about White People’s Day, in the tweet many are now finding so offensive:

“Happy white peoples independence day the slaves weren’t free but I’m sure they enjoyed fireworks.”

And white people lost their damn minds.

Immediately, Twitter began lighting up with shock that Rock had dared to mention that black people in America were kept as slaves and treated horribly. And that it wasn’t until we fought a big ugly bloody war to end it so that black people got the right to, you know, not be murdered or beaten or forced to work for years on end with no recompense at all.

Predictably, white people — who, as Rock points out, enjoyed freedom for all the years black people were enslaved — were very displeased with Rock saying something that is both factually true and, may we point out, references historical happenings far more recent than the very event July 4th marks.

In fact, as many white people complain, it is basically as bad as slavery that sometimes black people mention that black people were once slaves. As white people are quick to explain, this is called “reverse racism,” and is equally harmful.

Sometime immediately after the civil war ended, racism was replaced with this newer, more insidious kind of race-based hate that appears whenever anyone mentions that conditions used to be worse for black people in America — a historically correct but inconvenient bit of information for non-black people.

In a time where a black kid can’t walk to the corner store without getting shot at point-blank range right in the chest, won’t anyone think of the white people? Do you know how hard it is to be white nowadays, with all the black people who insist on referring to history every so often?

Many took to Twitter to complain about Rock’s “racism” in pointing out that something that happened actually happened. As a white person myself, I would much rather that than getting shot in the chest at point-blank range when I am just trying to buy a damn iced tea, but I realize that opinion is just me, and far be it from me to speak for all white people, or suggest that the reaction to Rock’s tweet still illustrates we have a long way to go.

But you know, both getting shot and having to hear about a black kid that got shot are bad! Listen to one Conservative on Twitter of the #tcot hashtag, who cries into his tea:

Chris Rock says ‘happy white people’s independence day.’ Racist lefties keep throwing gas on the fire to keep the hate alive. #tcot #loser”

Yes, you guys! Racism is like Voldemort. We can only summon it by mentioning it, and acknowledging it did exist and still exists, and if we simply pretend it did not happen, and that the kid who got shot right in the chest for going to the store was really asking for it because he was suspended from school (even though George Zimmerman could not have possibly known that), then all racism will not only magically never occur, but it will also never have happened.

User @rodimusprime muses:

“From the Chris Rock backlash I can see that a lot of people have replaced history with the Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter version of slavery.”

Maybe that guy is on to something, because that movie made white people look really noble! The actual historically factual version is just totally reverse racism. Another white person simply sniffs:

“Chris, find a country you like and go there.”

Now see, this guy knows history. Americans don’t have a history of speaking freely about things they don’t like, in order to affect change. No Americans can criticize America without planning to leave the country, as that is the only solution to unfavorable conditions like systemic racism. In fact, I think it is in the Bill of Rights, that all men are created equal, except maybe black people, women and gay folk, and if you don’t like it, leave.

It should be noted that Chris Rock has not deleted his White People’s Day tweet, allowing White People to wear their official outrage at being discriminated against hat for many more days to come.

    So can we say Happy Black People's day on Juneteenth? Is that racist? What Rock said was RACIST and FYI slavery has been over since I believe 1835. GET OVER IT! He should be on his knees thanking God above that his ancestors were brought here because if they were left in Africa, he'd be DEAD by now or running naked over there infected with AIDS.

    More white people got killed freeing blacks than any war. Dam right its white day.

    The Black punk was killed at point blank range because his was on top of and trying to smash in Zimmerman's head. Not far away, 2 white englishmen were shot execution style for simply making a wrong turn into a Black neighborhood. Sick of the spin you all put on minority crime.

    Cant you get over it? It was over 150 years ago, and to think people told me I was being a baby complaining about something that happened to me when I was a kid. No Chris Rock, whitey doesn't owe you anything, you have lots more money than most white folks.

    Did black people free themselves from slavery? I don't think so but I could be wrong. I thought I heard in school that it was "white" folks who ended slavery by killing each other I don't know just saying.

    How disgusting! We do not live in the past. it is time for all Americans to realize we are ONE NATION, UNDER GOD, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL! It will take all of us to keep the enemy away from our shores, trying to steal our freedoms. ROCK, live in the present, not the past. What is history is just that. We study it in school, all of it, in order not to repeat past mistakes. Look at the Irish. They were treated as less than intelligent, and given the menial jobs. it made them stronger. THEY WORKED, THEY DID NOT EXPECT WELFARE THEIR WHOLE LIVES! Being rqadical in any area is bad for all of us. Rock, I will sincerely pray fpor you. You can make such a difference because you are high profile. Our young people need to work together. We have differences in our cultures. That does not mean we cannot be friends and loving neighbors.

    I'm white and that shit is funny as hell….people need to quit being so damn weak. I love chris rock.

    White people have paid over and over for something that happened over a 100 years ago. Not a person has been alive that had anything to do with slavery….yet the blacks still use the slavery card to this day….
    Then you have black actors who become famous and all of a sudden they feel the need to open up old wounds that start an up roar….

    It isn't about ignoring that something in the past happened. I think we can all agree that slavery and racism happened, and in some cases, still happens. It's about becoming educated and accepting. Something that it doesn't sound Mr. Rock will be any time soon, and to be quite honest, the author of this piece either. It's just another uneducated, overpaid person who takes advantage of their celebrity to spew ignorance and negativity. At least my children will be educated and accepting, even if it isn't reciprocated by the many ignorant people who make up the USA.

    And this is not racist? Maybe it's even sexist. Considering that the War for Independence created a nation that millions of people who are not "white" have come to, long before the abolition of slavery, flourished and made a new life for themselves and their families. Chris, it may not have started out as an ideal country, but you forget America was called "The Great Experiment". And with all experiments, adjustments are made repeatedly until you end up with the results you invisioned. It takes time, effort and a willingness to accept the mistakes of the past and move on and make better in the future. Our Constitution set forth this experiment and laid down set of tools we've always had to work with that makes this country a breathing, living and morphing experience that is novel in the history of man. No experiment nets a great outcome in the first try. Alchemy takes a bit of magic. A bit of hope. Cynicism is not a creative problem solver. It's part of the problem.

    To condemn the past is to negate the ability to identify where change and adjustments are POSSIBLE. Looking back allows us to say, "we overcame this, now let's see what we can do moving forward." A cynic can't see that kind of possibility. It only sees road blocks. What you said lacks wisdom and insight, let alone a reflection upon what it takes to move collective consciousness in a country of such cultural diversity. It's crass, arrogant, pathetic, cynical, and myopic. It's not even funny.

    I'm a woman. We didn't have the rights of men in 1776. We were under their thumb of rule as well. And still, I celebrate this "Great Experiment" even if it didn't start off representing women's rights. In our life time we've seen huge rights advances, more in YOURS and MY lifetimes than in the all of the history of this nation.

    No matter what, I'm not sure I'd like to live anywhere else. But if I did. At least I know I CAN LEAVE without anyone stopping me if it isn't living up to my expectations. And so can you. So if America is celebrating the birth of a nation that has made you wealthy and you reduce it to this glib remark, YOU ARE THE PROBLEM WITHIN AMERICA. You're a cancerous thinker… spoiled, apathetic, insensitive and ungrateful.

    Oh shut up Chris. As much as I hate racism, I'm sorry African American's suck this shit up too much. They always keep going back to Slavery and such. yes it was bad. But that was our ancestors, not US. People need to grown up. Besides there's BET and Telemundo, and the BET Awards and Black History Month and Latino Month, and it goes on like it's fine, but if we did a only white TV channel or White History Month, we'd be labeled as racists. I'm sorry but everyone needs to grow up. Blacks need to stop bitching about racism. Actually, as far as I know, Black's are being racist against whites if we want to go down that road.

    Well said Mary!! Slavery was long ago but yet they still cling to that in order to gain sympathy from the liberals so they will receive their hand outs!! No one else who has come to this country EXPECTS to get something for nothing, and as for the whole Zimmerman comment, more black people shoot their own people AND others as opposed to white shooting black. Just another thing for the blacks to whine about. Don't get me wrong, I am TOTALLY NOT a racist, I have many dear, dear friends who are black as well as other nationalities. I am not in favor of the NAACP, isn't that racist?? Can I start the NAAWP??? Hell no, I would be racist!! Get over yourself, Rock!! You're an idiot!! I sure saw a lot of black people enjoying this country's independence!!

    The only racism left in this country is against whites, we have united negro colleges, black entertainment tv, black history month and lets not forget welfare for blacks (the term "White Able Male" was coined solely to exclude whites from government assistance). Just Imagine if whites had any of those. Personally I could care less what color a person is, a person should be judged by character not by color. Racism is a game taught by our government, is anyone tired of playing yet?

    Here is the truth on the 3/5ths clause; Some people need an education:

    The so-called racist intent of the Constitution is seen by some (many?) in the “three-fifths clause” found in Article I, section 2, clause 3. Contrary to what some historians claim, the “three-fifths clause” is a clear indication that a number of our constitutional founders wanted to end slavery; it is not a statement about personhood. The Northern states did not want to count slaves. The Southern states hoped to include slaves in the population statistics in order to acquire additional representation in Congress to advance their political position.

    It took 30,000 people to get one congressman, and slaves outnumbered whites in slave states. It was the Democrat hope that with enough pro-slavery congressmen, they could overturn much of the abolitionist legislation Northern Republicans had previously passed.

    However, there was one philosophical problem: blacks in Southern states had no rights thus The North deemed it a joke they only be counted when beneficial to Democrats. Northern abolitionists argued that since the South considered blacks their property, all ‘property’ should be counted for the purpose of determining congressional representation. Thus the Northern abolitionists would include their property: horses, cattle, homes, furniture, pets, etc. in their population tallies.

    The South denounced the proposal, so anti-slavery northerner James Wilson of Pennsylvania came up with a compromise. Blacks in the Southern states would be counted as “three-fifths” of a person. That way, it would take 50,000 people (instead of 30,000) in a district to earn congressional representation. That had the effect of limiting the power of the slave states.

    The compromise was to count slaves as “three-fifths” of a person for representation purposes. The fewer slaves counted the fewer number of representatives. “It had NOTHING to do with the worth of a person and EVERYTHING to do with diminishing the power of” the pro-slavery Southern states.

    Chris Rock is totally irrelevant and had to say SOMETHING to get people to pay attention to him again.

    stop telling people you are black..we know.bringing up slavery is the most irrellevant thing I have ever heard.

    reverse political correctness strikes again if a comedian not of color had made a similar "remark" directed at a minority community they would probably be looking for a new line of work..

    People need to stop complaining about Chris Rock's comment…point is he stated a FACT. It's not about being racist or the fact that we're not in the past. The ONLY reason why so many people are getting offended by the comment is because it's the TRUTH. Just leave it at that…oh, and most important keep in mind he IS a comedian, and his main job as a comedian is to tick people off at times…and guess what, HE WON. So hats off to Chris Rock. Get over it people!

    I like how you use the term "They" and "Them" like African American people are some sort of outcast group. And then you lump everyone together and categorize all African Americans as "ingrates" when what you should be talking about is a dumb tweet by one person, Chris Rock. I'm glad Chris Rock hasn't taken down his tweet, I'm sick of people having to apologize for anything they tweet because god forbid one person might be offended. Who cares.

    1835? Wow, did I ever have my history lessons wrong! Somebody should have told John Brown he didn't need to raid Harpers Ferry after all! Why did they even bother fighting the Civil War from 1861 to 1865? They didn't need to as slavery was over by 1835!

It has a nice ring to it! It makes more sense than Columbus Day…Hey look I discovered a habited land…We are going to act like these people are not here and say we discovered where they already live.

    There isn't anybody alive today who was a slave or who owned a slave. Slavery is now illegal, that is what the Civil War accomplished. I realize there is racism alive today, but we cannot discredit the "reverse racism" claim as well. There is no "majority" or "minority" race in the US anymore, if I'm not mistaken, the hispanic population is as close to a majority as anyone. EVERYONE needs to respect one another and only then could racism ebb away. As the younger populations age, who just by virtue of the times they grow up in are more progressive, I think (hope) race will be much less of an issue. Chris Rock is a comedian, it is his nature to make cracks like this. He is also quite intelligent and knows what kind of response a tweet like this will cause. Dialogue. We elected a black president, I would think that once we reached this milestone, we would stop hearing about the first black this or the first black that. Only when we can discuss people and their achievements without mentioning their race (whatever it is) can we really be beyond racism. Back to Rock's tweet, to me (I'm white) it's a little harsh, but kind of true. It's a crack, I need to be able to laugh at myself before I can laugh at anybody else.

    I find Chris Rock offensive. We will never get rid of racism because of people like him who find it necessary to stoke the fires over and over and over again every chance possible. Blacks were not the only people subjected to slavery. It happened 200 years ago – how long are we going to have to hear about it over and over again? How long are we going to have to continue to pay for what our forefathers did 2 centuries ago? We can never move on if people like Chris Rock keep bringing up the past that NONE of us today had anything to do with. It is part of our history – leave it there and treat it as such and create new history by moving on!

    Gee Chris, for the trillionth time we are just so sorry for you and the horrible life you have to endure in this racist country. But just once I would sure like to hear a black guy or girl mention the fact that the Civil War was fought on both sides by millions of white people, both the north and the south and if the northern whites had not been willing to leave home and die by the tens of thousands so your black ass could be free I would be able to buy it and apply a whip to it daily. Sometimes I have to wonder if Great great grandaddy Nash maybe screwed up when he left home to die on some forgotten battlefield just so filth like you could complain about the past.

    Slavery may have been abolished in 1835 but they didn't actually gain full equal rights until 1964. Maybe think on that before saying he should be happy his ancestors came from Africa.

    Yes, most blacks were slaves at that time in our history and it is a terrible stain on our past. However, we need to remember that there were free blacks living in the North and the South. There were even some, not a large number, of black slave holders. Slavery, though terrible, was for the most part an economic institution. It is time for us as Americans to learn from the horrors of our history and get past it. Let us not forget that other races were mistreated too. Races such as the Native Americans, Hispanics and Asians. None of these groups were brought in to our country as slaves, but they were mistreated too. Racism is an evil we need to bury. It happens on all sides of all color lines. Chris Rock essentially helped to open old wounds and did nothing, in my opinion, to help our nation end racism.

  195. April Roberts

    Charlotte, to assume he would be running naked and have AIDS is a racist comment in itself, so I can see why you are so offended…YOU are racist.

  196. Kim LaCapria

    Your point is excellent. The past is in the past so why are we even celebrating Independence Day? That shit happened way back in 1776! I guess when we forget about it and move on, and stop lighting off fireworks, then 50 years after that we will forget slavery. Because it was more recently we had slaves than fought for our independence.

Thank you so much for bringing us here to build a country that to that to this day has a problem with us being here. Right… Get over yourself. You and your thought are nauseating and repulsive.

    We have come a long way, however, even after the slaves were freed women could not vote; white, black or otherwise. It took a long time for that to happen. Women were severely restricted. Yes, racism is a problem, however I believe sexism is an even bigger problem because it cuts cross culturally. When is the last time anyone ranted about that? So Chris put his foot in his mouth-it isn't the end of the world.

    Go, Chris! YESSSSS! When I see all these solemn docs about the "struggle" of the "founding fathers" to fashion a Declaration of Independence or a Constitution I feel as if I'm listening to someone from a psych ward. That the ff's were mostly slaveholders, that they were all agreeable to the idea of continuing slavery regardless of what some talked, and that the importation of slaves continued well after the cut off date of 1808 never, ever, comes up on that day. That's a part of the story of "freedom" in America! It's all too sentimentalized so we don't see our country as flawed, thus we never have a chance to really correct it. We're too busy exporting democracy! AND LISTEN GOOD FOLKS: CHATTEL SLAVERY ENDED IN 1865, BUT, SEGREGATION AND SHARECROPPING REPLACED IT WITH OPPRESSIVE REGIMES ALL ACROSS THE SOUTH, AND THE CUSTOMS BLED INTO THE NORTH. WOODROW WILSON HELPED EXPORT THEM INTO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT BY SQUEEZING OUT BLACK FEDERAL EMPLOYEES AND INTRODUCING RACIAL SEPARATION INTO THE CORRIDORS OF THE GOVERNMENT. America's racist past has deformed the thinking of the country. You go, Chris! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    So, all slave owners were white, and all whites are descended from slave owners? NOT TRUE, on both counts. The majority of caucasians on the east coast come from European people who emigrated to America in or around 1900,35 years after slavery was abolished. If he's lumping us all into one category based on race, wouldn't that be…racism? The President of the United States is (part) black! It's time for us ALL to move past this and get on with things.

    Blacks were enslaved for about 400 some odd years…racism was still alive and well into the 1970's…it's only been about 40 years since then…so yeah us blacks are probably going to remind you whites for another 300 years that what you did to our people was wrong!

    its 1865 dear, but you probably went to a public school like i did so i wont fault you too much. (i also acknowledge the 3 key and the 6 key are right next to each other on the number pad)
    as far as Africa is concerned, I have never been there, but i know living conditions vary from country to country. Many countries are stable, and though impoverished by American standards, people lead decent lives on minimal resources. Countries you typically hear about are very corrupt, but you hear about them because corruption makes the news.

    But Charlotte's statement does have a line of truth. Today's descendants of slaves have more opportunities than their cousins in Africa. Bare in mind opportunity, and actual lifestyle do not equate.

    To be honest, I find this article 10 times more offensive than what Chris Rock said. It's written by a white apologist who probably takes the minority stance, regardless of any facts or evidence. I especially enjoyed the part about Trayvon Martin. As if black people didn't shoot 90 other black people last month in one city alone (Chicago). Yep, it's all about the silly, hateful white people….

    so, I am white. hey, this is America. we all have freedom to speak. we also have the freedom to ignore. Chris was just bluntly bringing up a point that America is still VERY divided. it was crude to put it that way, but he has a point. July 4th has become a white holiday, not a uniting holiday. I am white and am in an area where the town practically stops to celebrate Juneteenth, and Cinco de Mayo, and Chinese New Year…. and the point I am making is really SO WHAT? so what, what ANYONE says. Hey I am glad we have a white holiday. I am glad whites can celebrate the heritage and not have to apologise that one day in the year for being white! And I am glad we all here can freely speak our minds, to make a point…. even if it is blunt like Chris Rock! Kudos to him!

    I distinctly remember learning about slavery in school, and re-visiting the abolishment of the slavery that Chris Rock is referring to, yearly on Juneteenth. Like I said, it's not about "glossing over" anything. I'm not using the fact that many of my Native American ancestry were murdered as an excuse for any part of my life. Does that mean I'm "glossing over" it? No. It's about accepting something that happened, that not one of us can change, and becoming educated and accepting of others. Racism is an excuse to not be educated about cultural and racial differences. That is what I was referring to when I said become educated. I never said anything about not mentioning slavery; that is something the history books will teach.

If you don't like what he said or don't agree with it there's a super simple way to deal with it: Ignore it, ignore him, and get over it.Or better yet, realize that he's a comedian and maybe take it with a grain of salt. It's not like anyone has to read his twitter feed. If it bugs you, close your eyes and bury your head in the sand.

    I am sick & tired of the black crap!!!! I have NO sense of humor when it comes to shit like this! Shame that you do – proves what a kiss ass you are to the liberal cause.

    I can assure Gary, the 400 year period when slavery took place in America, the black death toll passes that number. And most of the Native Americans, are in Mexico.

    Good point, John. We should also probably stop bringing up the 4th of July too, that was also in the past.

    He is right, white was free but black were not. Chris is funny and to the point. I am white and I did lol when I read it what he said. I think some times we just want to be mad to be mad. Chris has to be the funniest black dude out there. You rock Chris!

    he is a racist, he said when his daughter was born he was going to teach her to hate white people. I wouldn't put a dime in his pocket, except maybe to leave the country.

    Let me understand this…Black American's should forget slavery? It was a fact it happened! I understand it's history, however if you forget history you're destined to repeat it! And it amazes me the double standard that exists today in America when it comes to Black issues. I can demonstrate this with one question. How many people who are saying "get over it" to blacks about slavery, say the same things to Jewish people about Hitler & The Holocaust? I'm just sayin".

    Doesn't he know that on the fourth of july we celebrate the fact that wealthy land owners didn't want to pay taxes anymore to britain? No real relation that I can find.

    One thing Chris Rock and many people don't understand is that the US originally was colonial extensions of european culture like Spain, France, England, etc. and the Europeans established the institution of slavery 400 years before the United States became a country. Many slaves served in the colonial armies and were granted their freedom at the end of the revolutionary war that began on July 4, 1776. It took till 1783 to get rid of the Europeans. it took many more years for the founding fathers to complete the foundations of our government, which included freedom for all in the new U.S. This resulted in a civil war because some imperialist Europeans did not want to give up slavery, but in the end the United States won and slavery was abolished with the Emancipation Proclamation at the end of the civil war. The US never instituted slavery, the United States never condoned slavery, and the united states ended slavery as quickly as it could after it was formed. We have April 1st each year to celebrate those that believe otherwise.

    I don't know where the hell you live at but the blacks that I grew up with work for a living! Maybe in the inner cities I could but not many out in the rural areas are on welfare or crack ho's! and if you really want to say as to who help build this country it was the blacks that's why there were slaves! So don't get mad at Chris Rock for telling the truth just because it hurts!

    July 4th, Happy Slavery Day is also possible, since the Constitution we celebrate not only proclaimed a new kind of government, it also attached chattel slavery to that "new democracy"! William Lloyd Garrison, Wendell Phillips, and Frederick Douglas denounced that document as a "slavery constitution" because it enshrined in law the idea that treating blacks/Africans differently than other people in the US. That's part of the underpinning of The Dred Scott Decision which expressed the idea that people of African descent had no rights that the white majority was obliged to respect. Really read history, folks!

    It's funny that the author seems to make it ok to generalize. As far as I know, my ancestors got here just before the civil war. They slowly made their way to Minnesota. As anyone should know, Minnesota is a northern state and was against the idea of slavery. Never in my family's history did we own a slave or condone slavery. My family was involved in zero battles against indians. They were farmers in a state that had already been established before they got off of the boat. But, because I am white, I am suddenly a slave-owning, indian-killing bigot. Where does that come from? Should there be a White People's Day? Why not, there's a day for everyone else. Should I feel bad for being white? Should I feel bad for being a white male in America? No. I'm damn proud to be from here and all of the other Americans should be, too. If you really hate this country for its past, then make your future better in a country you can stomach, because, frankly, if you hate it here and hate me, I would rather not see you here.

    Everyone seems to forget about the white slaves (indentured servants) who were the first in the Colonies along with convict labor. Many of those "servants" dies within the first two years after arriving in the colonies due to the harsh treatment they received from their masters – all of it upheld by the law of the land. Slavery is wrong and a blight on our country's history no matter the color of the slave…

    As long as he's consistent and does this to every holiday, I'm good with it. But, maybe he should have just pointed to the still true, resounding words of Frederick Douglass’s famous speech, “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” instead of tweeting something that sounds so hateful. Point is, I can listen to a man like Douglass all day long. But, when it comes to a rich man talking as if he can somehow identify with his ancestors, sorry dude. That's like me taking cheap shots at the present-day English for what they did to my Irish ancestors. And if you don't know what that is, look it up. Some pretty brutal shit. So, Mr. Rock, stick to cashing your paychecks and leave the real livin' to those of us still scrappin' it out one day at a time. I live along the Georgia Ave corridor in DC. Where do you live. bruh?

    HAHA ignore history? really? thats your solution to all the years of repression? NO Irish people did not work harder than black people. Whites were actually given welfare first when they got loans to pay for their houses after the war and blacks were denied that right. EQUAL OPPORTUNITY DOES NOT EXIST FOR ALL AMERICANS WHEN WE STILL HAVE SEGREGATION IN SCHOOLS, COMMUNITIES AND CHURCHES. Kim is right, there are more poor white people in America than any other race.

    @ Harbin you are correct there were blacks that fought for the north during the civil war. There were also blacks who fought for the south during the civil war, and SOME of them did so voluntarily.

    Also there were blacks who fought for the colonies, who in turn earned their freedom. There were blacks who fought for the british, but i dont know what happened to them when the british left.

    Lastly there were whites who marched on selma, and rode the busses with the freedom riders.
    The greatest threat to racism is the truth, and the truth is not taught in our schools. Our schools teach Black or white, not Black AND white.

I'm white and (first) I've never even HEARD of such a day. Second: "How" do you celebrate being white; drinking milk all day and eating white crackers…LOL..laughing now….I mean really! Come on…anything anyone says about it is more than fair as far as I'm concerned. I don't like Chris Rock's comedy because I think he perpetuates the white/black thing constantly; I really think it's negative (like White People's Day.) Still, he has a point with his joke. Also, I DOn't THINK YOU CAN TELL PEOPLE WHO WERE SLAVES FOR OVER 100 YEARS TO "GET OVER IT." How totally ignorant. It's history, like the Nazi's… You don't get "over" something like that…you try to move on as well as you can from generation to generation and try to heal and forgive. That's just ignorant.

    Guess What if America didn't get it's freedom would slavery still happen? Well let's see, The Native Americans were the first slaves. After the white man nearly wiped them off the face of the map with, disease and mass slaughter they had to go some where. So they went to Africa and bought prisoners (yep prisoners (those who were captured from other tribes and then sold by those capturing tribes) The only one's who aren't truly free are those Native Americans. They are forced to live on a patch of land, which the government continues to shrink. If they leave the reservation they loose their small patch. The Blacks have it pretty damn good. They have their own black history month, BET awards, etc. Native Americans one day in February. I do not use the term African American, Chinese American etc., if you were born in the US you are American PERIOD! If you move to the US and become a citizen, you give up all rights once you take the oath and denounce your homeland. You are either American or you are not. Once you start adding titles you segregate yourself. So Chris Rock can't say it's white peoples day. You are in a free country if you don't like the country you can go to the country of your choosing.

    Mary a few things to point out, for one we are no longer allowed to say under god it was taken out (I still say it though). Secondly, you should never forget the past it makes what we are today, you forgive but never forget. We'll the history I was taught in school was not the real history because before there were slaves that were bought by whites to build this country. This country was occupied by what we call Native Americans today, so tell me how did Christopher Columbus discover something that was already occupied. So yes Chris Rock was insensitive in saying what he said but my heritage independence day is celebrated on June 19. Also, more than color makes people different other black people like myself are very different the only thing I have in common with some blacks is that I am black as well. However, Chris Rock has the right to say what he wants at the end of the day he's human just like you and me I don't care if he's celebrating what our young people need to know stop believing in people and put their belief in god or what higher power of their religious beliefs.

Many years ago an all black audience on this show agreed that a holiday like the 4th of July meant nothing to them. I was offended for all of 15 seconds until I realized how silly it would be for African Americans to celebrate a holiday that was specifically about American independence when at the time in 1776 they were slaves and would remain so for almost another 100 years.

Another innocent child dead because of gang violence. I don"t want to hear that they live in the ghetto. Everyone has it tough right now. That doesn"t mean you have the right to steal from someone else or kill them for their money.

    First of all 1865 was all that long ago. It was over nearly 150 years, now I don't know about you, but since my name isn't Methuselah. That seems like a really long time ago, unless the dear writer of this article grew up in an affluent household where her beloved parents had "servants." And, BTW, Chris can call it "White Peoples Day' all he wants, but working a grocery store I noticed there wasn't a shortage of 'Brotha's & Sista's" shopping for BBQ, Chicken and Watermelon.

    maybe I'm being a bit insensitivie to the feelings of White Americans but its true he wasnt saying anything that hasn't been documented in a history book. how is it offensive honestly it was another 89 years in 1865 until the rights posed in the declaration of independence and the constitution were there's to. Frederick Douglass on July 4 1841 gave a independence day speech in NY saying that the holiday was a hypocracy and pointless to him because though blacks did fight and die in the war of independence they didn't have those rights so the war meant nothing to him. the speech is here: http://www.libertynet.org/edcivic/freddoug.html.

    I love independence day but its a fact of history that that wasnt the day that my ancestors were set free from tyranny. take it as you will and to those who say you should be glad you got taken from Africa you really need a history lesson.

    it's really stupid how divided we are as a country. In other foreign nations, we're identified as AMERICANS. Here in this country, we're identified by the color of our skins. We're not a united nation, white people still don't like blacks, and vice versa, and if it's not something against them, it's something against latinos, or Asians, or Jews. Don't be fooled, a lot of the BS that we have in this country is because we're not a united people.

    the founding of america was not a simple thing. Maybe Chris Rock should read up on it. There was a anti slavery provision in the Declaration of Independence that had to be taken out in order for the measure to pass. The fact remains America was trying something thought impossible on the premise of freedom for all americans, slaves included. Admittedly our nation has not always lived up to this idea. slavery and the trail of tears comes to mind. The Founders compromised to get it passed essentially kicking the can down the road with the hope that this evil would one day be righted. 90 years later it came to a head and I'll point out to Mr. Rock a lot of white americans died giving their last full measure of devotion because they believed in the founding principle that all men are created free. Slavery didn't end that day but the end of slavery started that day and that is something worth celebrating. America is a Idea. July 4th is a celebration of that idea. This country is one that allows people like Mr. Rock are allowed to voice his opinions without fear of persecution. If nothing else he should celebrate that.

    Good old Chris Rock, telling it like it is. The racism at play was slavery, the rebutal to that was the war of independance and fought by European Americans. From what I gather about the USA, ill feeling towards African Americans still exists. If idiots can't accept blacks as equals then there will always be room, and rightly so, for comments like this. Slavery might be abolished but true freedom's still to be acheived.

    As usual these type of commentaries on Independence Day comes from people regardless of color, that never served in the military with no allegiance to anyone or anything except themselves, so rock on Chris in your own little Hollywood fantasy world.

    I agree with the white people whose not offended, can't he say anything about the past that's even though painful it's worth remembering.
    it's a real no no to discriminate black people but some white people still do it anyway and they're not hated this much.

I personally find it funny as hell. and what he said IS NOT RACIST, maybe if we were in some African country where whites were an oppressed 13% than it might be but here, in American it's not. Hate me for this all you want but who really gives a darn.

    I can personally say that I haven't enjoyed this country's independence from Brittain for any longer than any black person that I have ever met. Oh, and that "Big ugly war" that you mentioned was fought and won by white people who were in the majority of Americans in believing that slavery is wrong. I'm not taking the "get over it" route of previous comments. We should never forget that this happened, but slavery is certainly not favored by public sentiment today and should not be part of the national conversation. By the way, I might mention here that slavery ended with the passage of the 13th Ammendment in April 1864 but Independence Day was not recognized by congress until 1870. Yeah, blacks were included. The entire basis of Chris Rock's commentary is unfounded and is only inflamatory. But hey….all publicity is good publicity, right?

    Slavery was a horrible thing, so CR makes a comment on the 4th to remind people. SO WHAT! Stop the hatred people. The fact is many races, and religions for that matter, have been subjected to horrible persecution throughout human history. Let's all remember what our ancestors have done and been subjected to so that we can allow their sacrifices or mistakes to make us better. Personally I could ruminate on my American Indian heritage and feel like a victim my whole life berating the white man for taking our way of life and poisoning our people with alcohol, or even more recently kicking my mother and uncles out of the public swimming pool because "the darkies weren't allowed to swim with the white kids" or I could focus on my fathers side berating myself and my family for being slave owners somewhere back in their history. But the truth is that was a long time ago and me nor my parents ever owned a slave or had our land ripped away from us by a white monster. We are just a typical mixed american family that has a history of mistakes and successes.
    I just see CR comment as a chance to be reminded of how far we've come. THANK YOU to every black, white, Jewish, and American Indian person who has suffered, at whatever point in history, so that I and my children can live in a more diverse and tolerant world.

If you go to a nursing home who's wiping all the old white people's asses, hua? If you go out to eat, who's in the back washing the dishes? This is what they've been bred for – to entertain and serve.

    How ironic. If it wasn't for slavery, Chris Rock wouldn't be a millionaire right now enjoying that very freedcom that white people fought for him to enjoy. Then he shows his appreciation by making mockery racist comments. Really? No black person alive was a slave. Stop sucking off the pains of your ancestors for your pathetic symapthy. I'm French and Indian and BOTH people endured as much if not MORE negativity in this country. You are CLUELESS how bad the French were treated here, yet people like me are called "white" and blacks think somehow I owe YOU. Blacks in this country need to stop milking the slavery issue. It was well over 100 years ago. Grow up and move on with your live. You are GIVEN eveything…what more do you want? I'm done with minority BS. This country is past the melting pot era. We have melted. It is time that we all become equal under law and not worry about what individuals do. We need to get rid of all racist organizations including the KKK, NAACP, Black Panthers and all others.

NEVER HAS BEEN NEVER WILL BE. It's impossible. Racism is NOT about words…it's about POWER and NO racial group in this country OTHER than white people have ever HAD the power and ONLY white people have ever USED this power. PERIOD! HISTORICAL FACT! the truth is not racism. what you are seeing is GUILTISM…..The guild that some white people feel when reminded of the horrors committed by their ancestors on people of color all over this globe. Racism will never resolve until its chief perpetrators own up to it, seek forgiveness and then most importantly…CHANGE! What I don't understand is why would someone feel offended by the truth?

    Chris Rock: You are a superstar celebrity, multimillionaire, more privileged than kings and queens, and you want to wallow in the mess of 150 years ago? Yes, slavery/racism all that was evil beyond words to describe. But the country overcame THOSE conditions and gotten a whole helluva lot better, and have established a place where all can partake of the "American Dream," black people included. As you have proved in your life. Doesn't make sense. You alienate a lot of people who don't have that trash talk coming. But then, maybe you're so over-the-top set in your that you don't have to care about the little people. Irony.

    I love how if you say one thing perceived as wrong about black people, you're racist. But because white people that aren't even alive anymore had slaves we're free targets for the rest of our existence. What a crock of crap. Yes, slavery was bad, but white people were slaves too. Just about every race has been enslaved at one point or another, and I've never seen anyone but blacks and guilty-feeling white people complain about it. Just let it the hell go already, and stop punishing us for things that we, personally, had no part in.

    The day black people that have never been enslaved in their lives move past the fact that their ancestors were slaves, and white people that never owned a slave of any race in their lives stop feeling guilty, we can move past this ridiculous fan that's continuously fanning the flames of racism.

    So let's just say that no one is special because of the color of their skin and leave it at that already.

This is what they've been bred for, so just look at it like this… let them do what they do best, let them continue to serve by being the source of our entertainment, what else are they good for? Let them exist for your amusement and entertainment. Chris Rock didn't say anything that wasn't true. The 4th. of July has nothing to do with them, after all they didn't build this country, they only carried the bricks.

    you're ignorant. the god you mention was the same god that was used to justify slavery. it's like the jews getting on their knees and thanking hitler. and they weren't 'brought' here as you state, but rounded up, shipped tightly in a lower deck of a ship and sold as a commodity upon arrival. and I don't see many african's naked these days. maybe you should visit africa and see that your tarzan primitive vision is outdated and ethnocentric. btw, are you related to that bigot mel gibson? cuz you sound ignorant and intolerant.

    I could understand the author's rant if ANYONE alive had either owned slaves or been a slave. You(the author and others who think that way) continue to treat slavery like a current issue. Yes it was terrible, but there's a reason it's in the past. I also love that the author says not too long ago. Really? I kind of think that the 1860's was quite a long time ago. My family didn't even live in this country yet, but of course I'm also an evil whitey who enslaved black people. Why do I get to inherit the mantle of en-slaver? I don't own anyone and never have. That is the problem with treating this like a current issue and never getting on with life. Stop obsessing about what happened between any of our ancestors and start to deal with reality and how we can move forward from this point.

    I have read all of these back and forth comments and I have come to 2 conclusions. Slavery was a HORRIBLE thing! Not everyone agreed with it back then and not everyone is racist now. There are good people in the world and there are bad people in the world. There is love and there is hate. There are many races/cultures of people in this world. Some people get along with each other, others don't. We as human beings learn from our mistakes and hopefully grow stronger by improving our past. Non-violence, forgiveness, and peace is the only way for all of us to see one another's point of view. NONE of us were slaves and NONE of us owned slaves, so I see no need for all of you to continue arguing and sending one another hatred remarks and anger. The governments want us to fight and want to divide us! Misplaced hate creates wars and makes the wealthy, richer and the poor, poorer. Struggle has no color! Suffering has no color! Death doesn't care either. LOVE is the way! Chris Rock was simply making a point that he feels strong about it. I respect his passion and I don't pay any mind to the rest of his comment. It's time we start recognizing our strength in numbers as a "whole" and not our weakness as individuals. It's the only way that we will preserve our freedom's and liberty. PEACE and LOVE to you all!

    So what we get one day a year, blacks get the whole month of February, and a Black Miss America Pageant, and Black Entertainment Television, and the United Negro College Fund, and the NAACP, and Affirmative Action. On top of all of this, we white people have to include blacks in any and everything we do by law. If he wants to whine about one day we celebrate, it just shows what an uneducated moron he is. Besides, not one black that is walking around today had to be subjected to slavery. Stop crying and take advantage of the thousands of programs that are available exclusively to every race, except white people. (oh this goes for women and homosexuals as well, since they are all allowed to have sexual exclusive programs and white men are not allowed to gain membership or participate in said programs and organizations.)

    I think that the key is that everyone is way to sensitive. If Chris wants to give us a day then I will gladly accept it. Go White People's Day! But I do think that African Americans need to stop using the N- word. And that Blacks are highly sensitive and blame slavery for there short comings. Thank God we have a Black president to represent that Blacks can do anything. Stop blaming whitey, and instead blame yourself.

    Chris Rock is a Christian, I suppose he will tweet something spiteful toward the Jewish population on Easter for Killing his savior. Atrocities have occurred all throughout history and continue today. A holiday like the fourth, that should bring all americans together, is the wrong platform to make a comment that divides and creates unnecessary controversy between two groups of Americans. Love your comedy though!

    Sigh… No one with an IQ greater than pocket lint is suggesting we "forget" about slavery. To forget about such a thing would doom us to repeat it. However we can, and should, learn from that mistake in our history and and move on. Although racial relations have improved since 1865, hell even 1965, no one can reasonably expect cohesion to occur until we stop claiming offenses inflicted on our ancestors as if they were inflicted upon ourselves. There isn't a person alive today who isn't a descendant of a slave. All cultures have owned, and in turn, been owned by slaves. Whether by another culture or their own.

    sometimes I wish a great cataclysm would occur, and wipe the slate clean. People who cannot let go of the past, will be left there.

    Slavery ended on paper, in Texas 1865. Juneteeth is the celebration of "no more slavery in Texas" not in any other state. A lot of states just claim this to be unified African Americans as a whole and a mission complete. All blacks aren't from African decent. My ancestory shows that my father's side originates from Germany and my mothers side Ireland. In all cultures, you have aryans and dravidians, who are treated differently because of a few shades of difference. My dad is black as Sanka coffee and my mom is the female howdy doody, like myself. So Chris Rock might not still be in Africa doing stand-up on a back of a Giraffe, he might be chained up in a cellar in England as the Queen's jester and secret lover, who's to say. To his defense, Chris is only telling the truth through comedy. Black's were not free at the time, but they celebrated with their masters and ate their masters table scraps as if they were celebrating at the O.J. Simpson after party. We love our White people, because they are our family, we love our black people, because they are our roots. We love our Mexican family because they been through the same shit we been through. And we love our Asian people, because I've never had an orgasm via a pedicure( my "O" FACE) – just kidding folks, lighten up on the last joke :)

    It is a widely held fact that over 99% of black people in the USA are also mixed with some type of white DNA. Just watch Finding Your Roots on PBS with Dr. Henry Louis Gates Jr. I am sure Chris Rock will refuse to go on this show if ever asked because his DNA will betray his racist and ignorant belief system.)

    Sorry people, but we won our independence with most all races involved. Africans, African Americans, Asians, Haitians, White People, Arabic and others all fought in that war.

    That war was for the independence of this country. NOT for an individual or a single race.

    I am sorry Chris has problems over slavery and it was horrible and now it is over. Or is it. What are our celebrities doing about the Hispanic and Asian labors in slavery here in the US? I here people complain that their ancestors were slaves, but they do not do anything to help people who are in slavery today.

    My only issue with what Chris Rock said is that hundreds of thousands of Union soldiers died to rid this country of slavery. I never understand why people don't state that. These WHITE soldiers died to emancipate the slaves. What higher cost is above the ultimate sacrifice of death?

    He's a comedian. He made a joke, and it hit a nerve. Sometimes that's the purpose of humor. What we should take from this is we need to meet in the middle and understand there are those who are not necessarily here by choice or proud of their country. That's not un-american; it means we have to keep working. This country was founded on speaking out and rebellion, it would serve us well to remember dissent made this country when we rail against opposing viewpoints.

He should study history and it reveals that black people had something to do with slavery. Duh! they sold blacks to the whites. Bigotry, today, is the focus of blacks, creatiing a greater separation, from other races.

    We have way too many Chris Rocks in this world. Slavery has been gone for years and yet we have to be constantly reminded about it. It's OLD news. EVERYONE who was actually involved in slavery has been long gone. GET OVER IT ALREADY. We have issues going on right now that are equally as important as dwelling on the past. Move on to the present..Stop feeling sorry for yourselves..YOU WEREN'T EVEN INVOLVED.

    LOL :-)))….well truth is truth….im taking a class in american government now and when the constitution said that all men are equal it only meant the white men not black folks the founding fathers all still had slaves when they signed the declaration of independence….I don't hate white folks my husband is white…..i don't even blame them for anything cause bless the Lord there were white folks that woke up that fought to end slavery…..

    everyone on here is nuts. July 4th is celebrating America's independence from Europe. That we became our own country. Yes, we still had slaves when this was done. Black people fought for the independence of America as well. We were not fighting the Black & white war, we were fighting for a countrys independence from another country. Chris Rock was just being his usual self in his completely stupid and idiotic comment. July 4th is not about race. It is about our countrys freedom from european rule. The fight to end slavery came later on, and was fought by white and black people. Black people have many holidays and a whole month for African American Month. I don't see a white American awareness month, so shut up all of you self righteous people. Get over your race barrier and stop crying. We don't have slaves. We are all free now. Get over it! Live in 2012 for crying out loud, and may Chris Rock realize that he was being an idiot. Another black person trying to turn a great holiday into another persecusion of white people about blacks. Geeze, I am so sick of them living in the past and oh, boo hoo, us. You wouldn't have the bad rap you do if Most of your 'brothers and sisters' would stop gang banging, cheating the system with fake welfare and food stamp claims, selling drugs, etc.. I wish everyone would grow up and move on!

    Horray! Racism, alive and well and going strong. Take a long hard look at your comments. Now think about how you sound. YOU ARE ALL RACISTS!

    All of you people should remove those chips from your shoulders. One day we will get over the sins of the past (which nobody alive today took part in), and realize that skin is skin. You are no better. You are no worse. One doesn't deserve more then another. If we want to fix today and work towards tomorrow, then it's time to move past the past. Look to today and create a better world tomorrow.

    My problem with this kind of comment is that I am forced into the conversation because I am a young male Irish and Italian American living in America. I do not dispute the atrocities of slavery that occurred in this country, and I certainly do not disagree that slavery in America is the largest taint on this country's past. BUT, while that was going on in America, my Italian ancestors were LIVING IN ITALY. My Irish ancestors were LIVING IN IRELAND. So when you group all "white people" together, yes, it is Reverse Racism. You stereotype my family and I in a way that only unjustly shifts the blame. In Ireland, throughout the 16, 17, and 1800's, my family was oppressed by Britain. From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade. It wasn't until 1839 that Britain stopped transporting Irish slaves. The following years were just as harsh economically, and so on. My Italian ancestors were poor and suffered in their respective area of Naples. When both sides of my family came to America, in the early to mid 1900's, times were difficult and racism was a large part of the acclimation process in America for them. I suggest all of you take a look at the Italian American Internment Camps that were in America during WWII (1942). We have all heard about the Japanese Camps in America, and reparations were rightly given to the Japanese American's whose family suffered. There was and still has never been a public apology, nor reparations for Italian Americans. Please understand that I know I live in America, and I know my nation's history very well, but I am also Very Very aware of my ethnic and cultural background as well. Don't blame my ancestors, and subsequently ME for something that I, nor ANY of the members of my family could control. This is racist. This is disgusting. And this is why stereotyping, racial tension, and ethnocentrism still exists.

    This is where you find the real thoughts of white people. The web is a way to voice your actual feelings without any backlash. I bet that the majority of these hateful comments on this article would never be said in a social gathering, and that's why racism still exist. From what I've read, the majority of the minority people posting on the article are just reiterating that Rock was being factual, and the majority of the comments coming from whites are hateful, monkey this, welfare that (even though whites receive most of the benefits), send them back to africa this. Just answer me this question, why is there so much hate?

    What's racist about it? I love the response – "Slavery was over in 1835" more like 1863. 250 years of slavery vs 150 years since slavery was abolished. And that doesn't take into consideration the Jim Crow laws. Here's your mule, let's call it even.

    It's like expecting Native Americans to celebrate Christopher Columbus day.

Everybody needs to go back to their history books and see that blacks were not the only slaves in this country at that time! As a matter of fact, the white indentured servants were the ones that had to build this country up in the cities while the blacks took care of the farms. After almost 200 years, of which were weren't even ALIVE, it's time to get the heck over it! Whites and blacks alike don't owe anybody anything at this point in time! Just GET OVER IT!

    You're not very smart are you? You don't think black people know what racism is? Black college? It's called traditionally black college.. you know.. left over from the time where if a black person wanted to go to college.. they'd have to go to that one? But it isn't ONLY black people.. they let all racist attend.

    Black Miss America? really? formed in 1968.. guess how many black girls were in "Miss America" in 1968 I don't even have to do research to tell you it was zero.. But here's the fact.. there wasn't a single black "Miss America" Contestant until 1970… So now do you know why they made a "Black Miss America"? so black people could do the same thing white people were doing.

    I can't believe you have the balls to say that Black people don't know what racism is… BTW i'm a WHITE guy..

    I read the article until where he said ' that black kid got shot for going to the store.' After that I knew for sure this was a racist anti fact person who really hates the truth. It would be foolish to deny racism exists and has existed in the past but to inflame people with lies when there is more truth available it unforgivable. Chris Rock is correct that July 4th is white people independence day and that slavery was a fact of life for a lot of people. We also owe some sort of reparations for the slavery of the past that was never addressed. What we don't owe is the complete forgiveness of crimes against people.

    Great post! But the difference is that you are not in Europe. I have very close Irish friends and they tell me the Brits still treat them like shit over the pond. The relevance here is that blacks were oppressed in this country and are currently still here. You shouldn't be included in the ppl who oppressed minorities here, but its the same way a ton of these posters talk about all blacks on welfare, and other crap that doesn't make sense I'm group into that as well, I guess it comes with the territory

    First of all, Chris Rock is a comedian everybody – remember?

    I am not bothered by the reference to the fact that slavery was still in place (despite being white) when the constitution was signed. I believe that this was a major stumbling block between our "founding fathers" that they were unable to resolve and folks a century later needed to right that wrong. However, Chris, not all black people in the U.S. were slaves that day just an FYI and not everyone supported slavery even then. To whomever wrote this article though, you are an idiot, crime that is racially inspired happens in both directions today. I think that everyone, needs to stop with the race card, black, white, yellow, red – we are all human and need to take a stand against the senseless hatred that is perpetuated by those who would not like it a whole lot if we realized we have more in common than we have differences! Only then can we realize the deep changes to education, hunger, homelessness, joblessness that we all want to see!

    Oh yeah – and there is nothing wrong with jokes everyone! I am Polish and believe me, I have to laugh my head off at most of the Polack jokes! Only exception, if one person can use a word then everyone can!

Regardless of the "truth" the purpose of the self-styled comedian and this article is to be divisive. How little people understand history. The concession to allow slavery in the new country was a terrible necessity that many who framed the Constitution knew was not in keeping with the principles it outlined. However, the only choice was to accept the new government with that flaw, or abandon the process altogether. Slavery has been abolished. I do not own slaves, and I have no guilt on my hands over slavery – and resent people like this idiot who can't get over the past.

    What he should of said was Happy White Men's Independence day. They were the only one's included. No white women no black people, and definitely not the Indians, who by the way were here first, and had been cheated out of this land, and almost killed off by whom? Hmmmm. So to tell the truth he was right. Black people have done more for this country than any other race here. But yet we had to fight and die to get the right to vote in 1965. We've been hung, shot, beat, hosed, had our churches burned and blown up with our children in them, had dogs turned on us, but yet here we stand. We had to start different movements just to get into schools, or eat at a diner, or just register to vote. But yet we still fought for this country that called us less than any white man. And now we have a black president, and he is treated like a dog and called liar and monkey, and shown disrespect at every turn, but yet he still trying to help every one in this country, black or white, red and yellow. You know there could be a town with nothing but white people living there, and they would find someone in that town to hate. You can, t get along with yourselves, more or less with the rest of the world. So why should we expect anything different for you now. So for all of you who have something to say about what Chris said. Ask yourself just one question. DID HE LIE.

The majority of early slaves to America were actually WHITE and IRISH.

    I like Chris Rock as a comedian however his comment is idiotic in the sense it serves as nothing more than a perpetuating factor in racial tension.

  843. Mary Goldsmith

    Wow…I see that some of you people have been in the heat too long. You're acting crazy. Time to get out of the heat and into a/c. Just saying.

  844. Mike Metroulas

    I'm not offended. Chris Rock can stoke the fires of racial hatred all he wants. That's partially why we celebrate July 4… so ALL Americans can say whatever the hell they want. If he wants to race bait and train generations of young Americans to have racially-motivated hostility, it's his right to do so.

    There is no such thing as “reverse racism.” Racism is racism and that comment tweeted by the ignorant individual was racist. The definition of racism (according to the dictionary) is:

    1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
    2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
    3. hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.

    Ergo, it is what it is regardless of what color the person is that is spewing the crap. SO, in my opinion, slavery happened and it was HORRIBLE! But how long do we all have to apologize for the ignorance shown SO many years ago? Seriously! I had NOTHING to do with slavery. I do not believe I am better than anyone because I’m white. I don’t see Chris Rock or any of the other outspoken folks that play the race card complaining about “Miss Black America” or “United Negro College Fund,” etc… and yet, because I’m not the “right race,” I don’t qualify for either one… initially because of the color of my skin. In closing, putting it bluntly, get over it. Put your big kid undies on and move on with life. If you are truly treated unfairly because of the color of your skin, then deal with the specific issue and stop generalizing that all “white people” enslaved a race or that all “white people” are racist. It’s simply ridiculous. I happen to know quite a few folks of different races that are sick and tired of their own races playing the card… and if they are sick of it… makes ya think….

    Again, you are arguing from a patriotic stand point. I never said I agreed with him, I only said I can acknowledge truth. Perhaps you should write him a letter and two of you can hash things out.

  847. Jon Sullivan

    Commentary on race relations 236 years ago is unneeded if its designed to drive a spike in the strides made between then and now. The fact is people don't have to love their country and the right to be critical of your country is a great freedom in the U.S. But Rock lumped all white people together as those who enjoy this country and all black people together as those who shouldn't celebrate its birthday. I'm sorry but that is asking for a fight, at a time when we should all come together.

    Whoever wrote this article is just as ignorant and racist as the people backlashing against Chris Rock. "In a time where a black kid can’t walk to the corner store without getting shot at point-blank range right in the chest, won’t anyone think of the white people", really? So black kids are only shot by middle aged white men. Sounds like you replaced reality with Black Panther gospel.
