Irony and hypocrisy often run rampant in liberal ideology. It’s already been established that, while progressives consider income inequality to be an issue second-to-none, liberal-leaning cities harbor more income inequality than cities without liberal policies. On Wednesday, comedic actor Chris Rock pointed out the hypocrisy of another issue that has dominated headlines in recent weeks: racism.
Rock wrote a controversial op-ed for the Hollywood Reporter calling out Tinseltown for being “a white industry” despite projecting an image of diversity and inclusion. From Inquisitr:
Chris Rock said in his essay that for all the claims of liberalism and progressiveness in Hollywood’s entertainment industry, it is still very much a “white industry.”
Said Rock, “The black people they do hire tend to be the same person.”
But rather than simply focus on discrimination against African Americans, Chris Rock also touched on the racism experienced by Mexican Americans and other Latinos.
“[F]orget whether Hollywood is black enough. A better question is: Is Hollywood Mexican enough?”
“You’re in L.A, you’ve got to try not to hire Mexicans. It’s the most liberal town in the world, and there’s a part of it that’s kind of racist… [It’s just accepted] that there’s a slave state in L.A.”
“There’s this [expectation] that Mexicans are going to take care of white people in L.A. that doesn’t exist anywhere else.”
But aren’t conservatives supposed to be the racists?
