Christopher Julius "Chris" Rock III is an American comedian, actor, screenwriter, television producer, film producer and director. He was voted as the fifth greatest stand-up comedian of all time by Comedy Central.
BOLD AND ENTERTAINING
Chris Rock is not afraid of retribution from the drug companies, nor the government. He has an opinion on everything from drugs, medicine, health, rawfood, doctors, AIDS, Polio, vaccines, vaccinations, disease, HIV, coke, crack, legalizing marijuana, rich and poor, racial relations, celebrities and just about every controversial issue. His father died in 1988 after ulcer surgery, no wonder he might feel cynical about the medical association. Rock's presentation style was influenced by his paternal grandfather, Allen Rock, who was a preacher. You may recognize him from "Saturday Night Live" and "In Living Color" and his very own "The Chris Rock Show."

THE LANGUAGE HE USES
He uses sarcasm, wit and expletives to get your attention and keep you laughing in your seat. There are hidden truths behind everything he says. Chris is definitely NOT afraid of controversy or ticking any one off. He tells it like he sees it. Take a look at the excerpt from Chris Rock's opening monologue at the 77th Annual Academy Awards® in 2005.
CHRIS INTRODUCES OBAMA
WE NEED TO BE ON THE SIDE OF CHANGE. Let people know that Homeopathy World Community is MORE than just Homeopathy. HWC is about total health in mind, body, and spirit. We practice healthy lifestyle. Hahnemann himself talked about removing obstacles to cure. How do we inform the public?
BREAK THE STRONGHOLD OF STATUS QUO AND NEGATIVE ENERGY
We, as homeopaths and the general population of the world community, also need FREEDOM to practice what we believe is right. Without the pressures of monopolies, the pharmaceutical drug industry, and governments invested in mistaken vaccination programs filled with harmful and dangerous adjuvants and disease elements.
MONEY IS EMPOWERING. MONEY CAN CHANGE THE STATUS QUO
MONEY IS GOOD. We need this message. Have you ever heard of shopping therapy? Well, it can really be empowering and uplifting to some people. And money DOES buy GOOD things like security, a roof over your head, food on the table, mobility, and also the ability to GIVE and SHARE with others the feelings in your heart. So, if you want to help make a difference in the world of homeopathy. GIVE A DONATION to those who are out in the field working so hard to create and market documentaries about our healing art.
SMALL PRICE TO PAY FOR A CURE FOR DEPRESSION
Get involved with World Homeopathy Awareness Week [WHAW] and find out how we can spread the word about Homeopathy and Mental Wellness. Elizabeth Brandegee is leading us in that endeavor. Chris has experience with loved ones being addicted since his older brother, Charles, died in 2006 after a long struggle with alcoholism. Chris makes his statements loud and clear through the use of irony.
TAKE A HINT: FOLLOW THE LAW This is a little bit off-color if you know what I mean.
WHY USE SARCASM? It's because he's angry.
Chris is totally upset. He's fighting mad. He's disappointed in a system that he trusted. Chris is getting back and sticking it to a system that he entrusted the lives of his family members, and found this system totally failed and disappointed him. Now, I'm not saying he is right in his language or behavior. (And there is a bit of truth to what he says.) However, I wonder if it does more harm than good to get people riled up? Maybe it does get other people angry enough to take action. Not like in a posse vigilante style hanging, but in let's change the system so it can be improved in a positive manner.
PREACHING OR ENTERTAINMENT?
I'll let you decide. Is this topic and style preaching or entertainment. Is he just spilling his guts to make you laugh? Is he on a band-stand podium to get you thinking and teach a lesson?
Okay, Chris Rock is a really funny comedian. Yeah. He uses vulgarities and curse words and I'm not all for that. TAKE A HINT: Please do not use them on HWC! You will get your A$$ Kicked off.
Also, remember: PLEASE RESPECT EACH OTHER. We all have a lot of experience and have developed our own styles and methods of practicing. We are also together in this journey called life. Everyone here is open to learning NEW THINGS. So please share.
