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.

What does that even mean.? Ignorant comment

You say some blacks talk down to white folk, like that's a secret😂

@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.

Depends on the dictionary you use.

“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.

What a dickhead.


Sadly a true story.

Okay Chris.. Line up yours first. And the rest of your gene pool.Then we'll talk.

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.

Chris Rock is a no-nothing moron. As a comedian, he's about as funny as an anal fistula.

When he calls for help, what if the cops don't come...and they call the Crips to go there instead...now, that would be funny.

He, is not funny!

I think it is mostly hyperbole. Remember, it's a comedy act. I think it is an effort to integrate disturbing content and process painful experience in a mostly positive way. In a sane world no one takes the jokster literally because they get the general idea of comedy entertainment. I think that the statement is meant to be absurd, no less obserd than cops just going around shooting at people because they are black or simply from the wrong side of town at the wrong time in a very wrong world. I assume it is a comment made to make people think and look inside their own self and question their own thoughts, feelings, prejudices and hypocrisies, But regardly of what our differing thoughts may be about it, take it in it's context: a comedy act.

Right. Reverse the context. Cops should shoot more black kids said by a white comedian. All civil rights groups would be up in arms.

Why oh why, would ANYONE find this type of context entertaining in ANYWAY?!!! Instead of laughing it makes me so sad, I want to cry. That is no lie! His comedy act is right up there with the video from that Kathy person and the fake human head on her hands. Wrong is wrong, it makes no difference which one of us does it. The day all sides understand that, and isn't attributed to demographics, that will be the day we truly make progress.
