"I’m here at the Academy Awards, otherwise known as the White People’s Choice Awards."
"You realize if they nominated hosts, I wouldn’t even get this job! You’d all be watching Neil Patrick Harris right now."
"Everybody went mad [this year] … Jada [Pinkett Smith] got mad. Jada said she’s not coming. Isn’t she on a TV show? Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna’s panties. I wasn’t invited."
“This year, things are going to be a little different. This year, in the In Memoriam package, it’s just going to be black people that were shot by the cops on their way to the movies … yes I said it!”
- Yes, I think Chris Rock took it too far
- No, I think it's wrong that no African Americans were nominated
- I didn't watch and I don't care

His whole monologue was about race, it was fucking annoying. Yeah, a few puns that were funny, but the rest was just a bunch of whining.
I was expecting that though, given what have been happening since the nominees were announced. But man, shut up. It's not like black people are never nominated, or they're never given any roles to play.
They segregate themselves with the Black Movies Awards, but they cry when one or two times there's no blacks nominated.
"Oh mah gawd, there's racism in Hollywood... but lets still make a whole awards show just for ourselves, lets leave whites, Asians and Natives, out of this."
And then you wanna be taken seriously... just shut up, and do what your preach about, fucking hypocrites.

Chris Rock has always been a racist. There is not one stand up routine where he doesn't bash white people.
That we are EVEN still talking in "black" and "white" is sad enough. Somehow the producers thought it would be a good idea to have a host who is known for racist jokes. It was to be expected how it went. Why not have Will Smith host it? That man is just as funny as Chris, but has some class and can make a joke without being a potty mothed racist.
So many other talented artists who could have hosted this, and they picked this prick
