Yep, I'm familiar with that. That's his opinion (as a comedian), not mine (as a poster on this MB). Is it your opinion?
Yes, I share Chris Rock's opinion that there is, or can be, a difference between being a nigger and being a black person.

And some of the point of the monologue is that it is not the case that "all you have to do to be called it is to be black". Chris Rock is not calling all black people niggers. And I thought he made the distinction rather clear.
