commented on Nicer White People: Frank Rich Interviews Chris Rock
The passage you cite is just dumb. Maybe a few older whites claimed Obama's election was a sign of black progress, but almost everybody who talked about progress in that context meant the country had made progress in race relations.
The good parts of the interview that you dinant cite, because they didn't trigger your feels, were about comedy, how it's made, what makes it good or bad. But I'm sure everyone will just focus on silliness like the bit above.
