My mom, who grew up in a black Hispanic ghetto in East LA called Aliso Village, points out to my whole family (we're Sephardic Jews) that a black man open hand slapping another black man has a deep cultural significance. So once again, if real, it's meant to be a profound disrespect to Chris Rock, which brings us back to what Jim Carry (of all people) said, "This will forever be a stain on Chris Rock's public image."


I like speaking the truth even though it gets me into trouble.
