Comedian Chris Rock Says Police Should Kill More White Kids

Comedian and actor Chris Rock painted officers as murderous racists, and said they should kill more white youth.

Brooklyn, NY – In his first stand-up special in a decade, comedian and actor Chris Rock painted law enforcement officers as murderous racists, and expressed his desire to see more white youth killed.

“I wanna live in a world with real equality,” Rock said during the 64-minute Netflix special, “Tamborine,” which was released on Feb. 14.

“I want to live in a world where an equal amount of white kids are shot every month. I wanna see white mothers on TV, crying, standing next to Al Sharpton, talking about, ‘We need justice for Chad,'” the comedian told an 800-member audience from the stage of the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

"You would think that cops would occasionally shoot a white kid just to make it look good,” Rock suggested. “You’d think every couple of months they’d look at their dead n***a calendar and go… ‘Oh my God, we’re up to 16! We gotta shoot a white kid quick!"

He also shared his ideas about officer-involved shootings in general, and implied that police regularly kill “innocent” people without cause.

“Whenever the cops gun down an innocent black man, they always say the same thing. ‘Well, it’s not most cops. It’s just a few bad apples...’ Bad apple? That’s a lovely name for murderer. That almost sounds nice,” Rock mocked.

He then claimed to understand the situations law enforcement officers encounter, and the difficulties they endure.

“Here’s the thing. I know being a cop is hard. I know that shit’s dangerous. I know it is, okay” he said. “But some jobs can’t have bad apples. Some jobs, everybody gotta be good.”

Despite all of his grievances against officers, however, Rock said he will summons them when he is victimized.

“On one hand, I’m a black man who’s like, ‘F**k the police.’ On the other hand, I own property, so when my house gets broken into I’m not calling the Crips,” he said.

“Tamborine” is one of two specials that Rock agreed to in a $40 million deal with Netflix, according to Variety.

@Heezels of course he should mention black issues, he's a black comedian. So are the top white comedians saying that being pudgy and browbeaten is a white issue?

I think wanting more dead kids, of any race, is less than funny. MHO.

@Heezels chappelle can touch on black matters and go on to a totally different topic.

Louis CK, funny as he is, his whole set is about being out of shape, unattractive, and morally abject. He IS funny, but that's pretty much the same talking point for most of the top white comedians.

By the way, this is fun. I love talking stand-up.

Dude, you’re purposefully dancing around the point at hand and moving the goal posts.

Look. I understand there’s a whole wealth of nuance to a comedian like Dave Chappelle or Chris rock. But to not pick on a list of comedy legends just to say black people are funnier is so disingenuous. Keep in mind your claim is that one race is funnier than another.

My point is that it doesn’t matter which race is funnier because of the vary nuances you’re talking about with Dave Chappelle. I can say with 100% accuracy that Dave will touch on race at least three times in a special.

Is the same reason why George lopez touches on “mi familia...” and Louis CK touches on schluby crude humor. It’s easy. They’re out there working a crowd, and every comedian needs a good set of low jokes to build on. The best comedians do it subtly and intricately, like Dave Chappelle. But if you’re gonna sit there and say on race is funnier than another, and sell that as fact. I’ll just sit back and say, “yeah... well my dad could kick your dad’s ass” because that’s the level of intellectual discussion we’re having here.

YEAH. It's seriously messed up. Why would anyone say that--especially after a massacre in a high school? It's more than just poor taste. It's a serious lack of humanity.

Thanks a bunch Chris, for putting even more black kids at risk, by encouraging them to have a crappy, confrontational attitude when they have an encounter with police.

What? The special was recorded well before Parkland, and released last week.

@Heezels
Well, I'll refer to other comedians then. Most of their favorite professionals in their same field are black.

@Heezels and for the record, my argument isn't black comedians as a whole are funnier than white comedians. My argument is why are people getting mad now, when Chris Rock has been speaking like this his whole career? If you weren't familiar with Chris Rock's comedy up until this point, you're wasting energy being mad at something you shouldn't care about.

I think Chris Rock needs to be put away. Anyone that promotes killing of any kind has a screw loose. He needs mental help & should be put away.

Where does rock get his info? Cops shoot twice as many white people then black so get your facts straight

Why is it okay to promote racism towards the white man? If a white comedian promoted killing blacks the naacp would be filling a lawsuit and I'm sure it'd be all over the news. The issue no matter what your race is, is respect. If you don't respect anyone how are you going to respect a police officer. Making comedy of racism, is really racism.

I wonder if this crackpot is aware doctors & nurses murder more black babies than than white babies? It is called abortion.

Comedians have always been on the edge. I'm sure he doesn't really want to see anyone killed. He's trying to be funny. It may not be funny or make you laugh. It is not meant to be serious.

You would think Netflix would review a program before putting it on air. I may have to rethink my subscription.... Maybe Chris Rock wants equal killing on both sides considering blacks killing blacks is extremely high....Gang violence far surpasses any cops shooting them and stats show cops shoot more whites than blacks. I guess they need to complain racism in order to justify what they're doing to their own communities. Sad thing, little ones are being shot because they got in the way when bullets fly

@Hi_estComnDenomn every time you write a comment you expose yourself as a racist. Blacks are funnier than whites is purely subjective. I could make a comment about whites being smarter than blacks.....and of course I would be right, don't you think? If that upsets you, than you know how your comments are interpreted. Defending a black comedian who makes jokes about killing someone in todays climate is ignorant. School shootings didn't just start last week, it's been an ongoing problem in this country for decades.

Funny how being a stage clown, in front of a friendly throng, requires no courage, let alone life/death acuity.
And is this numbskull aware of the black murder rates in black neighborhoods? Or has he calculated the millions of black children slaughtered, with surgical precision, by doctors & nurses in abortion clinics?

I have been a Chris Rock fan for years, but as a retired police officer, listening to this new routine has turned me away from him. Nobody wants to shoot anybody but it happens in this line of work.

We'll see if we can get more white kids to commit crimes just for you Chris. I'm DONE with anything you act in.

Wow! Thinking he is being funny or actually meaning what he said and trying to make it funny is NOT okay! The world these days there isn't any room for jokes or saying things like this in public. I know about having rights to voice our thoughts, but there needs to be some discretion on our own selves! This just seems to be one of those things that is going to cause a lot of problems! I never liked this guy much, but he just blew it!

Poor Chris, folks don't let him get to you. He is just very frustrated that his race is slowing killing itself through abortion, drug abuse andmurder

It’s disengenous to say that “most of all comedians top favorite comedians are black.”

Like really? That’s the level of thought you’re going to put into it? To be honest man, that actually offends me because at that point you’re just asserting a claim that doesn’t even hold up to scrutiny. It’s speculative, and can only be supported by what you’ve heard in passing.

And as for your point about why people are getting upset now of chris rock content? Well could be that maybe white people are just getting tired of the hypocrisy of the notion that black people are still using race as a quick give me for jokes, but white people cant dare touch on the subject unless it in some way implicated them in their horrible past.

@CowGurlUP don't pull the abused female card now, clown. Don't call other people names if you don't like being called a dizzy bitch.

Equality is calling me a name, me calling you a name right back, then not accusing me of hating women.

TYPICAL BLACK LIVES MATTER SHIT ASS! Maybe you should want to see Black kids NOT COMMITING CRIMES Mr. Rock, that would SOLVE the problem. Oh, and more Black Kids are murdered every day by BLACKS than have ever, in the history of man, been killed by cops.

It was an easy compare. Both tried to make jokes about something they shouldn't have. Some people even laughed at it which is possible worse.
