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.

White Kids grow up in more traditional family homes than Black Kids. Black Kids have way more fatherless homes and thus commit more crime and are staring down the gun of an officer more often. Black Kids are also recruited by gangs far more often than White Kids and that further leads to a life of crime. Stats don't lie!

Why? Who'll pay his welfare if there are no white people working in the future?

You're right, stats don't lie. Given that, what's the issue with 175 opioid deaths a day in this country? It certainly isn't black kids. Whats going wrong with them?

The bottom line here though is that he's wrong. More white people are in fact shot by police. So, not only is it not funny, it's just plain fucking stupid and racist.

I don't care for any of the comic's on the blue collar comedy tour. I don't live that life either. You keep trying to guess what I think, how I feel or how I live. You are always completely wrong.

@pattyollie unless you're a millenial or gen x with no kids, you don't have the numbers to move Netflix's needle. If you're older than that, you aren't the consumer they're targeting.

@davidebrwn lol, shut up. there won't be a race war. put your Nazi fantasies away.

What you need is a war on drugs though, heroin to be specific. massive lockups should do the trick - it worked for black folk in the 80s, didn't it?

I'll let you in on a secret. There are plenty of younger successful black folk that were told by older successful black folk to subtly remind an ignorant white person daily that you're doing well, and quite possibly doing better than them. Don't be flashy with your possessions, don't go out of your way to be mean to the whites; just be a slight asshole and smile in their face. They will want to keep up appearances and smile right back, but every now and again you see the word "uppity negro" flash across their face.

Trust me, that look will never get old to me.

Now before you go calling me a racist, I never said I think black folk are better than white folk. Call me an asshole; that's much more accurate.

Fix your drug "epidemic" first, then worry about fighting others.

Comedians think that the thigns that come out of their mouths will not reflect their limitations. Fine, you can attribute their b.s to the sake of entertainment, as long as you own it either way. Any person who accuses others of racism, but has exploited racism to become rich, gives up the luxury of playing victim of racism. Guess what Rock, no one will take your claims seriously, ever! The older you get, the more racist you become. I find that somewhat ironic, but not funny at all.

I don't think you know what racist means. Stop throwing words around. Did he say one race was inherently better than the other?

@Hi_estComnDenomn is a race baiting cop hater. Please just try to ignore him.

Those comedians who think they can say ANYTHING because of their type of employment are crazy. If a white kid does what a black kid does, they need to be treated equally. However, black on black crime is horrendous and yet they continue to claim that blacks get shot because of their color when it comes to a white cop. Mixed up thinking on their part and I have seen how many blacks encourage racism. It is the crime they commit that gets them killed or shot...no matter what race they are...

Oh I know exactly what it means; it is you and Rock. He has been exploiting the differences amongst races his entire career. And people like you and him have laughed at it. That alone takes away your right to whine and complain about others making racist remarks. End of story. Own it oh and deal with it. Nothing excuses doing the wrong thing, whether as agression or retaliation in response. Sick and tired of people using racism to their convenience.

You're still using 'racism' wrong. I said what I said. You keep using that word but I don't think you know what it means.

Yes sir, I may be using it wrong, but as are you and Rock.
I think that we all have made it abundantly clear that “racism” is just another self-serving weapon that is tossed around whenever is convenient for either side.
Here is what racism means to me; it is a separation of humanity based completely on something as circumstantial as the place, and skin you were born in/with.
If you think that I am different because I am a Hispanic girl, and Rock as a black individual, that in my book is racism. But I understand, join in the train with Rock and any other celebrity who has exploited and profited from something as wrong as racism. Yet, in doing so, they have perpetuated the very thing that they claim to condemn.
Yeah, I just don' t buy it sir, if that makes me a racist in your eyes, or his, I am okay with it. As long as you understand that it makes you both racist in mine. Hey it may be your world, but I live in it too.
Truth is, if you have ever celebrated any of his jokes, which have been on ethnicity period, you don’t get to use the “racist” card because the jokes aren’t favoring your views and or ethnic group. The fact that we are as divided as a society purely based in our physical appearances is an embarrassment and it is proof against any progress you all think we have made as a society.
Civilization? Oh spare me….

Hey Chris, fact is, you people cannot control yourselves (as you prove by promoting racist violence) so the best thing the police can do is kill more of you people.

He's wanting cops to kill white kids once in awhile, fact is twice as many whites are killed by the police as blacks. Even though blacks are only 14% of the population, they commit over 60% of the violent crime.
