Comedian Chris Rock made a crack about President Barack Obama's "whiteness" on Thursday, saying most people ignore it "but it's there."

Appearing on NBC's "Today Show" Thursday to promote his new animated movie "Madagascar 3," Rock said he's portrayal of the zebra character is "in honor of our zebra president."

"I'll take the zebra, you know, in honor of our zebra president, you know, black and white, white and black," Rock said when asked which animal he would most want to be. "I love our president, but he's, you know, he's black and white, he appeals to all and that's what I'm going for….we ignore the president’s whiteness, but it’s there, it’s there."
