I heart Chris Rock

Firstly for calling bullshit on the 'he made good movies 30 years ago' defence put up by the Polanski apologists.

Secondly his upcoming doco on self-hatred by black women as expressed through their relationship with their hair looks like it will be awesome. I love that Chris Rock was inspired to make a film about the beauty industry in response to his daughter’s sad plea, “how come I don’t have good hair?”. The sad thing was his daughter was only five years old at the time.

I haven't been overly enthused by Rock's sexist patois in his routines from years gone by, but maybe these are good examples that a man/brother has matured, admitted his BS, and using his influence to call out racism and sexism. Keep it up Mr Rock!
