Chris Rock on 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'The different ways we honor those who've passed away can't be explained culturally or racially -- it's down to economics. That's what Chris Rock explained to Jimmy Fallon on 'Late Night' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC). "Black funerals and white funerals are pretty much the same. [But] rich people get buried a day, two days after they die because the money's there," said Rock. What if you're not rich?

Watch the video after the jump. The different ways we honor those who've passed away can't be explained culturally or racially -- it's down to economics. That's what Chris Rock explained to Jimmy Fallon on 'Late Night' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC). "Black funerals and white funerals are pretty much the same. [But] rich people get buried a day, two days after they die because the money's there," said Rock.

The more financially strapped among us have to raise the money through a bake sale or a car wash, then wait for everyone to arrive: "We can't start it yet, Gladys is driving in from Mississippi, and you know she only has three wheels."
