    Chris Rock did a great job with his monologue. But one thing that may negatively impact Chris Rock’s cause is his singular note to the diversity issue as only a black issue. Did he mention Latinos? How he stereotyped Asians as silent accountants is just sad. Asians are conservatiive and very hard working. They focus on family, respect honor. Neglect on Rock’s part on the general topic may alienate his goal leading to others to gain opportunity. Look how these communities are evolving in the U.k. And South Africa. Lesson to Rock. Evolve your community man and work with all as a collective, otherwise in the future, it will may not just be a white man’s hollywood you will be complaining about.
