Chris Rock Hates Civil Rights Films: "Racism & Jim Crow Is So Much Dirtier"



He doesn't believe that movies will able to grasp the full scope of how vicious and violent that time in history actually was. He doesn't agree with their often peaceful resolution. the Civil Rights Movement is "dirtier" than what most people have been taught.

"I hate all civil rights movies. Don't get me wrong. I applaud the effort and they should exist. The problem is they only show the back of the bus and the lunch counter. They actually make racism look very fixable. They don't really get into how dysfunctional the relationships were."
