“This is a faded simulacrum of the once-great comedian, who now uses his significant platform to air grievances against the great many people he holds in contempt, while deftly avoiding any accountability. If we don’t like his routine, we are the problem, not him.”
In the New York Times.
A friend, whose politics are different than mine, recently asked me to “keep an open mind”.
He can do the same by spending 27 minutes listening to Dave Chappelle’s June 11th YouTube vid.
Raw. X-rated. Because it will definitely offend some, I chose not to embed it. You can easily find it.
An African-American acquaintance of mine tweeted about it this way:
“Feel how you feel about Dave Chapelle. He isn’t above critique. But this…stand up(?) he just released on YouTube is nothing short of genius.”
I wonder, what will my friend think?
