Comedian Chris Rock’s new special “Tamborine” debuted on Netflix on Wednesday, and it was intensely political right out of the gate.
Rock’s first bit was about law enforcement, which he portrayed as a group of racists who shoot innocent black children in the street for sport.
“Here’s my question,” started Rock. “You would think that cops would occasionally shoot a white kid just to make it look good. You would think every couple of months they’d look at their dead n**** calendar and go, ‘Oh my God, we’re up to 16! We gotta shoot a white kid quick!'”
Rock continued, explaining that “real equality” would include “white mothers” crying about their dead children.
