i'm not sure if this is appropriate for this forum

move it to entertainment if you like i guess

ok....i have a serious question,im actually wondering this...

I'm white,i love his show,it seems like alot of powerful black people are very concerned with the racism in his show...i think his show is hilarious,i know the racism is all in good fun,and i think the show is one of the best.

I might like the show so much because im white...and even though some racism is put toward white people...alot of it is against blacks..so my question to some of the african americans on this board is...

Q:Does the show upset you,or do you love it as much as me?

i just want to know that,because for me,alot of chappelles racist comments seem to be just in comedic nature,and it doesnt bother me...but im wondering if some of the black people find it offensive,because it seems like alot of them dont care...so i dont see how alot of black entertainers are hating on Chappelle.

I don't find it offensive at all, but I'm sure that there are a lot of people that do.

I dont think its at all racist. People seriously needs to learn to take a joke.

Honestly, this kind of ting would never happen in the UK rolleyes.gif

It's clearly a joke, I know Americans don't "get" irony - however obvious but come on.

It's a very good show. He makes very poignant satire about politics, current events, and actual social conditions. Some of it is just of a comedic nature that people just need to take for what it is and some of his material actually is a reflection of the way things actually are in the world and some people just can't accept that. If it's racist, then that's actually the way things are.

It's funny. I think it should stay the same.

don't you all think it also sends negative stereotypes about young black kids?

Dave Chappelles show is the best thing to happen to the African American race in a long time, its finally good to see an African American taking the piss out of his own race, instead of shunning away the topic, such as the word "nigger".

If you're offended by Dave Chappelle, you need to take the dick out of your ass.

I don't see it as racist, but obviously Oprah does if you read that "Chappelle's a Dead Man' thread.

What he said. You know what's more offensive? People taking his show way too seriously.

He's the greatest black satirist we have right now. The show doesn't offend anyone so much as it points out and magnifies what most people in the States think when they think about Prince/Black people/White people/The Great Late Rick James/Whoever else and it scares them to death. People who are 'offended' by this show are just too afraid in this day of age of political correctness to really see racial differences for what they are. There's a point today that you're wrong to recognize a person as being different from yourself. In Chappelles Show, there is no 'African American', it's 'my nigger,' and people are scared. It hits way too close to home for some.

The thing my UK/British friends need to understand is that the Americans bright enough to understand the show love it, and therefore fall into the backdrops because, being America, the loudest prevail. If you've got a handfull of angry middle-aged moms in San Francisco complaining that the show is racist, before you know it senators everywhere are jumping to represent them and you have people on TV looking and sounding really dumb.

I love this show. its one of the funniest things that comes on and its funny everytime i watch it. he does make fun of black people and he also targets the white people and most of this he does by picking at stereotypes there are. nonetheless, he just wants to make everyone laugh and he does a really good job at it both in his show and his standup acts. and if you are seriously offended then just change the channel and let everyone else enjoy the show.
Dave is like my favortie comedian. i even have a shirt with him on it.
and by the way this is coming from a Latino guy.

why dont you say gta is responsible for many violent crimes and murders while your at it

Who cares if the show is offensive or not. People need to quit being such pussies and stop crying when someone cracks a joke about their race, religion or w/e. People are way to uptight. I hope the show gets more "offensive" and actually if you watch South Park, they do a lot more stuff that would be considered offensive that Chappelle.
Mattay
Of course not. It is simple means of pure entertainment. It may be offensive to some people, but lighten up, it's a Television Show.

Some jokes are rascist but there all in good fun, I know quite a few white, black,asians people and I've re-enacted the skits none were offended.

The world needs more people like Dave Chappelle, some one who isnt afraid to speak about the issues in this world no one else wants to touch, Dave Chappelle is the best thing to happen to this world in a long time.

If you think The Chapelle Show is Offensive you need to watch Mind of Mencia.

Anyway, Although I think that people that Laugh at Stupid ass skits like "The White "Nigar" Family" need to Slap there mothers for Raising them like that. I don't think the Shows offensive. It's Hillarious, His Views are Inteligent (Spefically the ones in his Stand Up Shows). He speaks his mind.
Thats why I respect him, He's a Great Man.
DAMIAN91
Meh Chappelle is only telling the truth about black people in his jokes...
Un-Amurikan Bastage
Chapelle's Show is the best thing to happen to comedy TV in years! Besides, from what I know it's mostly true (allthough I'm white).

We get Dave Chappelle down here and I think it is hilarious. There should be more people like Dave smile.gif. There is alot of Sudanese, Asians and Polynesians at my school that absolutely love the show!
