I watched a talk show a long time ago that included Chris Rock. They showed clips of his stand-up comic act, and the black show hostess was getting a real kick out of his "white *****" jokes. Of course the cuss words were bleeped out.

When the camera panned the audience, which was predominately white women, they awkwardly looked at each other as if they didn't know if they should clap.

I couldn't believe this hostess had this so-called comedian on her show, offending the people who pay to be there.

I'm surely not one of the idiots who buys tickets to see this comedian, and I have never watched that talk show since then.
