Chris had a few zingers like calling the Oscars the White People’s Choice (literally). But his best one was an anecdote about a function he attended with President Barack Obama as the guest of honor. He said it plain and clear: Hollywood is the most liberal place as you can get in the United States – and yet, they don’t hire black people.
