Chris Rock: 'We Ignore Obama's Whiteness'
Comedian calls Obama the "zebra president"
While promoting the new animated film Madagascar 3, comedian Chris Rock found an opportunity to compare his character to President Obama.
“I wanted to be the lion, you know, king of the jungle and all that, but that didn’t work out,” he says. “Snake is always good. You know, scare people. Ssss. But I’ll take the zebra.”
He continued, “In honor of our zebra president. Black and white, white and black. … I love our president, but he’s black and white. He appeals to all. And that’s what I am going for.”
He also insisted that the country likes to ignore Obama's whiteness. Do you think that's true?
