It's high time we Chris Rock the vote, which is exactly what happened Friday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live when the politically savvy comic made the case that "Barack Obama is the white president you can trust."
It sounds counterintuitive, we know, but check out the huge pool of supporting data Rock has amassed.
Consider that Obama was raised by his blindingly white grandparents, likes to golf, bowl and body surf and that his casual fashion choices tend to favor polo shirts and mom jeans. Not to mention awkwardly dancing on Ellen. We have to agree, that is pretty darned white!
The absolute crusher? Rock reminds us that for much of his life, Barack was known as Barry, which is "the third whitest name on Earth."
