RUSH: Here’s Chris Rock. He’s on the Today Show this morning. The co-host is Ann Curry. He’s got a new movie out, Madagascar 3. Ann Curry said, “If you could be any animal in the animal kingdom, Chris, what would it be?”
ROCK: I’ll take the zebra. You know, in honor of our zebra president. You know?
ROCK: Black and white, white and black. That sounded like the Jeffersons, right?
ROCK: I sounded like George. I love you our president but, you know, he’s black and white.
ROCK: He appeals to all, and that’s what I’m goin’ for. You know, we ignore the president’s whiteness, but it’s there.
ROCK: It’s there.
RUSH: What does that mean? What does it mean when you “ignore the president’s whiteness”? See how these people think? You see how these people think? What are you “ignoring,” Rock, when you ignore the whiteness? See, I think Obama’s black and white but he’s red all over. “Zebra.” But what is…? What are you ignoring? What are you not seeing when you realize he’s a little white, Chris? What’s that tell you? He’s not happy about it.
