On Monday, TAPPED posted a video of Chris Rock’s latest assessment of the country’s racial progress. It’s quintessential Chris Rock. "My father didn’t suddenly deserve to eat with people because he earned it," the comedian quipped. "The people that were denying him these rights got less crazy… people now are getting less crazy about gay people."

It’s food for thought, but also for debate: Does Chris Rock have a point? Have people with privilege suddenly become "less crazy?" Let’s hear your thoughts in the comments.
