Comedian Chris Rock on his Netflix stand-up special “Tamborine” says he envisions “a world with real equality” where “an equal amount of white kids are shot every month” and there’s “white mothers on TV crying.”  

"I want to live in a world where an equal amount of white kids are shot every month...I want to see white mothers on TV crying," says Rock.

He began his performance with the line, “You’d think every once in a while the cops would shoot a white kid just to make it look good.”

People actually laughed.

He goes on to say that he’s been preparing his kids “for the white man” ever since they were born.

“Ever since my kids were born, I’ve been getting them ready for the white man,” says Rock. “Everything in my house that’s the color white is either hot, heavy, or sharp. My kids know that when they deal with anything white, they gotta think about that shit. They gotta contemplate this shit. ‘Ooh, this napkin, okay, should I wipe my mouth with it? Or is that what whitey wants me to do?’”

He also used his routine to push gun control.

Six minutes into the show, Rock says, “This gun s--- ain’t going nowhere.”

“There ain’t never gonna be no gun control. You talk about it too long, and you’re gonna get shot,” he says. 

He added that people who are pro-guns could use knives instead – that they could do just as much damage if they really wanted to.

"If 100 people ever got stabbed at the same time, in the same place, by the same person, you know what that would mean?" he asks the audience. "Ninety-seven people deserve to die.”

His remarks have been praised on Twitter as timely and “so relevant” after the Florida school shooting last week.

During the stand-up special released on Wednesday, Rock also talked about cheating on his wife, having a porn addiction, and getting a divorce.

He told the audience that he was “talking from hell." With an opening line like that, he sure is heading in that direction.
