Description

When this Chris Rock bit debuted in the late 90’s it was lauded as a brutally honest look into the contradicting realities of Black America. Chris Rock was being called the new Pryor and there were comparisons to Lenny Bruce. Rock was becoming a mouthpiece for Black America, but was his most powerful bit anything more than underclass ideology? A curse filled, Cosby-esque bootstrapping manifesto?


 
In this episode we’ll take a deeper dive into the Reagan era respectability politics that dominated popular culture and the fascination with Black Excellence.
