During last night’s Academy Awards ceremony, host Chris Rock submitted to the #OscarsSoWhite controversy by performing a routine full of race-baiting assertions that America is a racist country where a black person can be killed at any time.
According to Conservative Tribune, Rock went too far when he made a joke that cops are all racist murderers.
“This year, things are going to be a little different. This year, in the ;In Memoriam’ package, it’s just going to be black people that were shot by the cops on their way to the movies,” Rock said.

While a google search revealed that no African-American men or women were killed by police this year on the way to the movies, it also turned up one interesting fact that Rock definitely didn’t want you to know about. National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund revealed that number of police officers killed by firearms has skyrocketed over 1,000 percent in 2016 over the same period in 2015.
Eleven officers have been killed by guns this year, compared to last year at this time when only one officer had been killed. These statistics make Rock’s joke even more sickening.
