    Chris Rock is hosting the Academy Awards this year,but I really wonder if it will go over too well with recent "jokes" about abortion and white people. It is Hollywierd though,so maybe it well be o.k.!!!

    It's a comedy skit.. Chris Rock is funny as hell. I watch him every time he's on, but that doesn't mean I believe in abortion.. Sometimes you need to just let go, and laugh. I seriously doubt he's going to do irreparable damage to the TV station, the Awards ceremony, and/or humanity as we know it...

    I don't think he will do irreparable damage,but don't care for some of his jokes. Too me,some things aren't good too joke about. I know he's always been kind of harsh,and I do think he's funny sometimes. I still think him and The Academy Awards don't fit though,should be interesting.

    I saw him on BET (Black Entertainment TV), he did a routine on why black kids are doing so poorly, he zoomed in on a lot of points that I agree with drugs, Mom on Dope, No Dad..... all the things conservatives have been saying all along.... it made me wonder if he was just a trash mouthed comedian or using humor to make political and social statements.

    He's an odd match for the Awards.

    I've watched some of his shows, he's funny, but it'd be better if he layed off some of the white jokes. Could anyone here see a white commedian get away with saying sarcastic shit about blacks.

    I don't find him all that amusing, but the "host" of the AA usually says very little, except for the opening monologue anyway.

    I don't watch the awards for the host anyway - just to see who I should be kissing up to this year!!!


    heh

    LOL, thanks for the parenthetical aside...all us corn-fed white boys thought BET was an outdated tape-viewing apparatus. :teeth:

    Dont matter to me. Im starting to wonder when they are going to realize that most people dont really care if hollywood gives themselves awards.

    Why should he lay off something that's a standard part of his routine?

    Personally, I think people would do well to get the sticks out of their asses. Its a friggen comedy routine - the funniest thing in the world is a joke at someone elses expense. If you say you don't tell them when the opportunity arises, I'd be willing to call you a liar.

    If you're not comfortable enough with who you are that a few jokes offend you, may I recommend you reside in a bubble? You may find it more to your liking.
