    While Americans were watching fireworks displays and enjoying barbecues, Chris Rock was stirring up some fireworks of his own with a controversial July 4 tweet.
    “Happy white peoples independence day the slaves weren’t free but I’m sure they enjoyed fireworks,”Rock tweeted.
    Reactions came fast and furious, with some fans telling the actor/comedian they were now swearing off his films for what they considered an unpatriotic comment.

    It's the 'elephant in the room' truth....
    Of course, we all have bar-b-ques. It's a day off from work for many... but 'The 4th' really isn't about any that isn't white.
    It was their war. Their fight.

    Indeed. Plus, he says things like this all day on stage during his routine's so it's not like they've never heard it before....

    Half the people upset about his comments probably don't know the half about this wicked holiday.

    Chris Rock has usually told it like it is. What can you say the truth hurts!! I do find his timing to be a little strange though, with him coming out with a IR movie soon.

    They found his Black people vs ***** analogy funny even though it just gave them fuel to use the n word and not feel a way about it.
