Real Talk

Chris Rock is a comedian who makes a good point similar to the
opinions of Bill Cosby and Alvin Poussaint’s “Come On People”, but he
compromises it by using derogatory terminology and in the process he
lessens the impact by doing so. In Rock’s Niggas vs. Black people he
contrasts the values of lower income blacks who have given in to stagnant lifestyles and hopelessness with middle class African-Americans. He says, “there are two sides: there’s black people, and theres niggas…and niggas have got to go.”
