Chris Rock’s Opening Oscars Monologue 2016 was dangerous and brave!
In case you missed it, Chris Rock’s opening monologue was one of the most important moments in Oscar history! I’m sure there are many moments at this year’s Oscars that many will remember. For some reason the tension was high and the atmosphere was thick with special anticipation, especially about how Host Chris Rock was going to handle the night’s festivities. Watch the video–>

Chris Rock was surprisingly straight forward about the #OscarsSoWhite issue. His racially charged opening monologue was something to behold. Rock was so straight forward about the issue I think the mostly white audience of stars was completely stunned by it.

“I thought about quitting, but they’re not going to cancel the Oscars!” After joking that it’s always the unemployed telling folks to quit a job, he took a quip at a Black comedian who’s had absolutely no shortage of work: “The last thing I need is to lose another job to Kevin Hart!”

​​​​In the standout line of his monologue, Rock gets to the question on everyone’s mind: “Is Hollywood racist? Is it burning cross racist? No. It’s a different type of racist.” The nicest people on Earth do not hire Black people. Hollywood is sorority racist.”

Watch the video clip for yourself. You be the judge. Was it too honest, all wrong or completely brave of him? I myself thought it was totally brave and on the cutting edge of a great conversation a lot of minorities want to express about equal opportunity in Hollywood. You tell me.
