Interview: Chris Rock claims "It's not black people who have progressed. It's white people."





Full interview is in New York Magazine. Click through please to be fully educated by Chris Rock.

The relevant bits summarized:

- Black people have always been qualified, we just now have a better class of white people who recognize this and it all ties back to Obama being elected as the first black president of the United States of America by said group.
- Black people are Tina Turner, white people are Ike...I don't even...
- Lots of black people are raised polite and educated and well-mannered without anyone realizing it until now.




Source. Source.



Mods, yes, I resorted to twitter. Don't kill me! I linked to Vox's summary as well.

ONTD, read the WHOLE thing @ the SOURCE, FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY please.
