To Whom It May Conern,

Christ Rock's comment, "To all the white boys that use to beat my ass, look at me now, I'm rich bitch" was a totally ignorant comment and very innapropriate for the NAACP Image Awards Show. What type of image did his comment set for the children of the cast "Everybody Hates Chris" or for that matter, children and people watching the show? Actors/Actresses comments need to be monitored in order not to bring discredit and embarrassment to the "black community". Additionally, if being "rich" intells being "ignorant", being "poor" is okay with me because "with a lack of knowledge we parish (die) anyway!
