Chris Rock: "This guy seems to be a little bit more."

I don't particularly like to see entertainers go off on politics. Except when they make sense. And on the issue of race, Chris Rock gives a perfect and simple answer:

KING: You must be--forgetting endorsements--proud that at this stage in our history a black man is running for president on a major ticket.

ROCK: Um, you know what? I'm proud Barack Obama's running for president. You know? If it was Flavor Flav, would I be proud? No. It's like … you know … I don't support Barack Obama because he's black … There's a proud feeling because of the character of the man.
