NEW YORK _ With his latest and best film in tow, Chris Rock is back in the spotlight right when we most need him.There’s no more salient voice on race in America, not to mention most other things in America, too: marriage, sports, Kanye West. As Rock has prepared to release his film “Top Five” on Dec. 12, his commentary on the grand jury verdicts in Ferguson and New York has been trenchant, and criticism of the movie business _ “a white industry,” he called it in an essay for the Hollywood Reporter _ has been like water in the desert of a (publicly) tight-lipped Hollywood. Rock is on a truth-telling spree.
