For some reason I'm supposed to care what Chris Rock thinks

about, well, anything.  In particular collective-guilt crap like this:
It’s about white people adjusting to a new reality?
Owning their actions. Not even their actions. The actions of your dad. Yeah, it’s unfair that you can get judged by something you didn’t do, but it’s also unfair that you can inherit money that you didn’t work for.
Well, wonder if he's going to donate every penny somewhere when he dies so any kids or family get none of it, since they didn't work for it?

And he can take that collective-guilt crap and shove it; that bullshit is- well, bullshit.

Well, one half of my family was an oppressed white religious minority for the past 150 years or so [and as far as I have reason to believe, not slave-holders before that, not being Southerners], and the other half were both a different one of those and post-slavery immigrants.

What actions am I supposed to be "owning"?

Skin-color-based collective guilt is ludicrous.

I don't see Chris Rock announcing plans to give away his millions of dollars; wonder what he is going to do -- leave it to his kids?
