Chris Rock: Cops Should Shoot More White People

Chris Rock was never one of my favorites, with “f-word this,” and “f-word that,” and so on. But if you’re going to make jokes about something, you should have your facts straight. In his Netflix special from February, Rock joked that he wished police would shoot more white people.

According to the Daily Wire, Rock joked, “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-word) calendar and go, ‘Oh my God, we’re up to 16! We gotta shoot a white kid quick…I wanna live in a world with real equality. I want to live in a world where an equal amount of white kids are shot every month…”

You see, because the race-baiting media exaggerate white cops shooting black people and tend to leave out the news when cops shoot white people, many people believe the narrative that’s been presented.

But, as Amanda Prestigiacomo of the aforementioned Daily Wire article points out, “far more white people are fatally shot by police than black people. A 2015 Washington Post study found that 49% of those fatally shot by police were white, while 24% were black.”

Nevertheless, the truth is that police shoot everyone, white and black, Hispanic, Asian, everyone (including the elderly and disabled), out of hysteria, paranoia, ignorance, fear, hatred, or just being plain “berserkers,” as the late William Norman Grigg would call them. This is worse in these more recent years.

And we know that many black motorists are pulled over for “driving while black” and searched more than others as well.

The biggest problem with the police, it seems to me, is their obsession with drugs. They are obsessed with catching people with drugs, whether they are trained to be obsessed and driven to criminally break into someone’s home and terrorizing or murdering them for the drug war, whatever. (Even though some cops themselves are druggies.) A high proportion of drug arrests and conviction are of black people, mainly because the drug war is a racist drug war. And so the police want to pull over people and search their cars because there might be drugs. Ooooh, drugs. They don’t care if they don’t have an actual reason to suspect someone of some specific thing, just get those drug users, buyers, possessers, sellers, etc. (Yet, the  liquor stores are selling booze to drunk drivers killing people on the roads, and contributing to people’s liver disease and alzheimer’s etc. Oh, well.)

So one way of preventing black people or black youths even getting involved with drugs is ending the drug war altogether. The youths get into drugs (black or other races) because they are bored. So they need something to keep them busy. Besides ending the drug war, the gubmint could also end minimum wage laws.

Those wage restrictions cause the elimination of many entry level jobs because employers can’t afford to hire entry level workers (such as high school-aged youths needing a part-time job, or young adults trying to get their foot in the door of some endeavor) at $10 per hour or whatever the minimum is ordered to be. When minimum wage is raised, more jobs are eliminated, thanks to the social activists who do not live in the world of reality, only fantasy. Repeal minimum wage laws, and millions of new entry-level jobs will spring up all over the country.

But it’s mainly the racist drug war that motivates the hypnotized, drug-obsessed cops to go after those possibly more likely to get involved with the drugs. The drug war needs to end. But I don’t think that joking about or wishing for cops to shoot more white people is helpful in any way.
