Chris Rock was the perfect host for the 2014 BET Awards, an event he referred to as “the Black World Cup” — a night where “you’re going to see something you never see … black artists getting credit for something they created,” he joked.

White people get to tune in and feel good!”). Watch the whole routine below:
