    And I do think Chris Rock's act is funny, and what he said is funny ... he's a comedian. None of us were around back then, so why not make some fun of it all?

    My ancestors weren't anywhere near the US in 1776, but it's still okay by me if July 4th is a holiday. History is history. Blacks sold other blacks into slavery to make money, so it wasn't just a white thing. And white slaves were also common at that time all around the globe. So, in general things sucked in many ways for many people back then. The fact that the US declared independence from Great Britain, at least got it on a path to become what it is today -- still very imperfect but way better than many other places around the globe. Find me the nirvana everyone thinks is supposed to exist. No nation is perfect and history is bloody awful everywhere.

    Im sorry if I hurt anyone's feelings but there are some stupid people on here. Lol all he's saying that the holiday's original purpose was to celebrate the formal signing of the Declaration of Independence from Great Britain. White people signed the document and most blacks were slaves. Therefore it's not their independence day. How is he stirring anything up? Lol that's a fact. Not mentioning something doesn't make that thing go away. SMDH

    Ewwwwww...it's gettin' "ugly" here! I think somebody's overstepping the boundaries of "tolerance"....oh wait a minute! Just white folks are supposed to learn the lessons of tolerance..yeah, I forgot! You're pathetic! I get "p*ssed" off too at times but I certainly don't advocate the killing of certain targeted American citizens as a means of shoring up the racial divisiveness in our nation! Then you folks b*tch about the Trayvon Martin case--geez!

    You know what...I think I have figured it out. Blacks such as "Pissed Off With White People" want the role reversal, their time to enslave whites, their time in history. They don't want equality, harmony, and unity amongst all. @Pissed: You need to learn more of what Dr. MLK jr. preached. MLK was brilliant person who had passion, love, and intelligence. Our country can not survive another civil war. Last question Pissed, Do you like Chinese food? Arabic? Korean? because thats what you will be eating on a daily basis if the US falls apart because of stupidity like this.
