It seems to me that someone could rig a camera to have a powerful stun gun, with a safety and a dead man’s switch.

When approaching someone prone to violence, take it off safe and hold down the switch, and it is just an ordinary camera. But if you release the switch, after a two second delay, the camera is powerfully electrified and gives whoever is holding it a serious jolt. After that, it goes back to being a normal camera with the safety on.

If it actually stuns the grabber so much they fall down, yell out that they are having a heart attack, and walk away in the confusion.

Isn’t he the Comedian who uses the N word all the time in his comedy routines?

One would think that sooner or later these people who earn money by entertaining would figure out that pissing off half of your audience isn’t a smart thing to do.

It isn’t surprising that he would attack the camera. After all he is pretty typical of entertainers who rose from nothing to become famous. They all start thinking they are intelligent.

Chris Rock was carjacked in his hood years ago (by his own “people”) and he’s actually from a MIDDLE CLASS family.

Why do you think he buddied up to Public Enemy, so long ago? Because he was trying to lay some claim to legitimacy by appearing to be “a REAL Black Man”. That’s also why he packs so much cursing into his act.

This is all an effort to divest himself of his actual upbringing and his slight frame.

It’s obvious at first glance that Rock is cranked up, probably on cocaine and cognac. I doubt he had operational filters left at that time of the morning. As far as his statement to Esquire is concerned, I can’t make any sense of it. I think I know what he was trying to say, but the actual words make no sense. Long story short, Rock is an idiot.

Ironically, I believe he wrote and starred in a movie, "CB4" about a gangsta rap group of middle class blacks who try to act like they're from "da hood."

When Chris started out, he was fairly politically incorrect, but I guess in the end he decided to “go along to get along.”

I once bought a Chris Rock CD, found it was full of racist white-hating filth, and threw it in the trash. Not a penny for this racist douchebag. Chris Rock hates me for being white...I think I’ll go cry now.

Exactly right. He literally WROTE that script personally.

Why was it so good? Because he connected so personally with everything in the movie..!

The film casts a hard-working PLUMBER as the budding rapper’s dad —Rock’s own dad was a hard-working delivery-van driver, and Christ idolized him.

Black love Chris Rock, but the vast majority of his earning power comes from a WHITE audience, and ironically whites hold blacks more tightly to “hood standards” than blacks themselves.

This attack is just more fallout from Chris Rock’s own ULTRA-STABLE, MIDDLE-CLASS SUBURBAN PAST —it condemned him to a future of always very elaborately “TRYING TO ACT BLACK”.

And I thought “Everybody Hates Chris” was a pretty funny show....plus it had the great Terry Crews (President Camacho) on it, as well.

Chris Rock grew-up in Bed-Stuy Brooklyn in the 70’s. That is about as black as you can get. He lived with his father and mother, a rarity in that neighborhood but they were hardly middle class.

Chris Rock (whose act I do love) is ALWAYS shooting his mouth off about Bed Stuy precisely because he knows how rickety his “black credentials” actually are —Eminem is blacker than he is, and Eminem is WHITE.

By attacking this reporter Chris Rock is trying to re-occupy black territory taken over from him by Dave Chapelle.

BUSINESS, sheesh.

Another reason that lighter-skinned blacks (see Alicia Keys), tend to be the most racist, they have that chip on their shoulder, and they feel they need to prove they are really black, by saying the most outrageous, racist things.

Chris who? Never heard of him. Probably just another stand-uppity comedian who's bitter about his "D-list" non-carreer.

I don't know what you mean by “black credentials” if you mean thug credentials then I understand. Chris Rock is black and he knows it. Eminem and all the other thugs are just punks lucky not to be in jail where they belong. If Chris is trying to earn his thug credentials then it looks like he is on his way.

Talentless, ignorant, in-your-face race pigs like Chris Rock?

I’m gonna go research ways to be MORE white, punk. MUCH cooler than your culture’s way, though you’re too abjectly clueless, to even begin to understand that.

So basically Rock is Urkel with a foul mouth.

I think that is known as “Projection”. Accuse others of what you are or have done.

Yes, that would be the 'nigga' - his favorite adjective. One guess as to how he refers to woman?

Oh, well, at least he doesn't call them sluts.

It’s the camera woman he attacked. But at least he didn’t call her a slut so it’s ok.

He’s trying to gain territory in the Klan with the Tan. Eminem is just a house wigger.
