Chris Rock delivers seven-minute monologue on MLB’s diversity problem

NSFW

The decline of African-American players in Major League Baseball has been a hot-button topic for a few years.

In 2014, just 8.3 percent of big league players were African-American.

Comedian Chris Rock took on this matter in a hilarious, yet poignant seven-minute monologue for the latest edition of HBO’s “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel.”

Rock managed to explain his concerns while also dropping gems like this:

“Baseball isn’t 20 percent black anymore. It’s eight percent and falling fast. That’s an average of two guys per team and those two probably listen to Blake Shelton to keep from getting their ass kicked by their teammates.”
