    I was just watching Chris Rock: Never Scared, a 2004 stand up performance at Constitution Hall in Washington, DC on Comedy Central. It originally aired on HBO. Don't ask me why I was watching it, but he started getting into the "bigger, stronger" slaves being bred which is why he claims blacks dominate "every physical activity." Now obviously a lot of the stuff he says is outlandish and not based on reality, and people know it. But I've run into tons of people who say what Chris Rock says is "so true!"

    "Black people dominate sports in the United States. We're 10% of the population, we're 90% of the Final Four."

    "Black people dominate this sh!t! Basketball, baseball, football, boxing, track! Even golf and tennis! And as soon they make a heated hockey rink, we're gonna take that sh!t too. Motherf*ck Wayne Gretzky. Wait 'till you see LeBron on some skates. You ain't seen nothing yet! He just gonna have one skate, chilling. He won't even have a stick, he'll just smack the puck in with his d!ck. Pow! Slapshot, bitch!"

    The people roared in applause, as most of them probably think this is one of the more true statements he made that night. I've run into people who think "if only blacks discovered hockey, they'd take that over too." As if they have completely taken over all the other sports. I mean, even with years of the Caste System one of the top rushers in the NFL was Peyton Hillis, and he's going to be on the cover of one of the most popular video games because of a FAN VOTE! This flies in the face of typical DWF beliefs!

    I've seen that routine. I guess it takes only one or two blacks in a sport in order for them to "dominate" it. By Rock's logic Whites dominate basketball because of Nowitzki and Nash, sprinting because of Jeremy Wariner, and football because of Aaron Rodgers and Wes Welker.

    Rock's bestHBO stand-up show was the early one when he called out blacks on a lot of their dysfunctional behavior. But he took some flak for it and stopped doing that kind of material. He used to have a talk show on one of the pay networks (HBO I think); I don't think he ever had a non-black guest on it. Edited by: Don Wassall

    Absolutely Don, he said golf and tennis, but even then "dominating it" was only either in the men's or women's divisions. The Willliam's sisters "dominating" women's tennis means black's dominate tennis, and Woods "dominating" men's golf means blacks dominate golf. What's funny is there are far more whites who "dominate" basketball and football than blacks in tennis and golf.

    You're right on Rock calling out black behavior. In his routines, just like Dave Chappelle's, at the end of the day blacks are the more down to earth and shrewd, while whites are impractical, naive, and the beneficiaries of historical luck.

    I've seen clips from Madkin's early routines and he did point out a lot of TNB, but as is the case with most other modern "comics," I can't stand to listen to all the vulgarity they spew. It is difficult to find more filth on regular cable.

    Outrageous! Why Didn't Chris, or Bomani Jones.. or so many others, including AFFLETES.. get the "bigger, stronger genes?" [​IMG]

    And, procreating for size, is something that blacks could do themselves anyways.. what is with this "mad scientist" White man garbage?

    Strength, on the other hand, blacks just don't have at the rate Whites have. NO negro Savickas, Koklyaev, Mariusz, Brian Shaw, Dave Ostlund, Derek Poundstone, Magnus Samuelsson, Stefan Solvi, Tarmo Mitt... talk about White men that would DOMINATE defensive tackle! Some pretty big and strong "White boys" they are..

    Chris Rock(5'10 at most?)is actually one of the few black comedians I find somewhat funny. But all comedians get on my nerves by the stupid things they say.
    Deadlift, can't wait to see massive men like Kevin Zeitler(6'4 315), Beau Allen(6'3 315), Patrick Butrym(6'4 285), Peter Konz(6'5 315), Jared Crick(6'6 295), Ricky Wagner(6'7 320) and many other well built white athletes compete in the Big Ten. Sorry that the list is heavy on Badgers but most of these guys are just off the top of my head. Wisconsin and many other teams in the Big Ten build their lines the right way, and don't fill their rosters w\overweight blubber sumo who are supposedly "athletic" and "road goaders". Besides since when did O-Line become such a glamour position? Don't you want guys that are "blue collar" or "hardworkers"in the trenches.Edited by: celticdb15

    I watched a Texas high school game about 2 years ago, and I only saw 3 or 4 White players total, and 3 of them were on the o-line, and they were positively gigantic! It was a site to see.

    It's ridiculous for the MSM to deny White "size/strength/athleticism."

    "I'm a Black comedian -- I think I'll make my schtick a recounting of tired stereotypes on how the races are different, which isn't funny, but it WILL be once I do so with a lot of cursing and idiotic facial expressions and flopping around like an electrocuted, brain-dead vegetable. I'm SOOOOOO different from all the others!"

    Lets not forget that many black comedians have jewish writers. Im sure the same is true with Chris Rock.

    Yes, that was his one-and-only good stand up routine. "Who's more racist, black people or White people?...black people, because black people hate n*****s too." Then goes on a near-10 minute rant against them. Sure there were a couple digs at White people in it, but otherwise it was an all-out tirade against them....can't find it on youtube or anywhere else now. He told a story about how he went to some party in L.A. not long after that gig and the cRapper Tupac was there, along with some other grammar-school-rhyming cRapper thug, and they more-or-less threatened him because of that routine. Ever since then, he's trying to make up to blacks for it with unfunny routines like the "taking over hockey" one and others. He's lost most of his White fans (not that he cares) since then. Not that I care either.

    I must have watched that show 20 times back then. Even with the retarded stuff he says now, I almost seem to be unable to have a negative impression of him because of the past things he said.

    I have seen Chris Rock a few times and he tends to make fun of his own race a lot but his problem with me is that he repeats himself 4 or 5 times before he gets to the punchline. Its very annoying. And his material isint great as most peoples arent. The one good comedian Ive seen who has a lot of originality is Ron White though now all his jokes seem to be about him having sex with his wife. It gets old quick. To be fair Dennis Leary swears way to much and his material is unfunny except for the a**h*** song. IMO.

    Whenever a black comedian is on TV or we see one live I tell my wife-I bet $100 he does 'racial' humor, haha drives her nuts because I'm always right. There is no such thing as a black comedian that doesn't do racial humor. One exception-Bill Cosby, I have heard many of his routines but don't remember any being racially oriented. Of course Bill is generally one of the good guys.

    Here's the thing about racial humor. It can be funny. I can laugh at jokes at white peoples expense because sometimes they are funny. What I don't like is the fact that a white comedian cannot make fun of black people even though there is no end of funny material about them. Which is why black comedians can be funny, because they can make fun of black people. And also nearly every joke about white people was mined by Richard Pryor 40 years ago and it's not any funnier now, just tiresome.
