I just think it was a neutral/innocent idea to impersonate someone who happened to be Chris Rock for some reason (maybe he impersonated more celebs and Rock was among them), that's why it's without racist intent and not because it was a joke. How in 2000 SNL thought that blackface is a good idea, or how it went unnoticed at the time is a different question.
