Chris Rock Causes Huge Uproar with his ‘White People’s Day’ Comment

Chris Rock

On the 4th of July, Chris Rock made a comment over Twitter that could actually change his career forever. Her is what he posted:

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

Chris Rock is known as a comedian and many fans think it was just a joke, but it was also taken the wrong way by a lot of people. He may have just stuck his foot in his mouth too far this time. Does it change the way you feel about the comedian?

Elon James White even stuck up for him saying that he doesn’t think he did anything wrong. He says it is the truth and that more people should acknowledge that in his opinion.

We all have our opinions, but some things like this are better kept to yourself and shouldn’t be said to millions of people over the internet. People may forget about this, but others might just avoid Chris Rock in the future because of it.

    Ultimate Peace will come not only when people stop fighting wars, but also when we end racism, and when people do not remain silent when they witness injustice. Live for Ultimate Peace.

    The sad thing is, people really COULD get along peacefully with each other, if they stopped to think about how similar we really are as humans, with really very little difference in what are the basic traits of humanness, when you really get right down to it. Life is short. Find peace.

    Well, honestly, he’s probably not wrong. But there are some things that just don’t need to be said out loud.
