Comedian Chris Rock plays the zebra Marty in "Madagascar 3: Escape to Euro” and appeared on NBC’s “Today” show to promote it. Ann Curry asked. Rock what animal he could be if he could choose anything. After considering the lion ("king of the jungle and all that") and the snake ("scare people, sssssss!"), Rock decided he'd stick with Marty the zebra, joking that it was "in honor of our zebra president, black and white, white and black." "I love our president, you know, but he's black and white, he appeals to all," Rock said. "That's what I'm going for….We ignore the President’s whiteness, but it’s there, it’s there,” Rock smiled and said.
Good thing black people can't be racist.
