We’ve been talking about Black Lives Matter for months now, but we’re not sick of it by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, we exposing the racism and domestic terror they cause to help enlighten the general public about what vile humans they really are.
And whenever a prominent black figure in our society goes against them, we cheer, because they get it. They get that BLM is perpetuating the every growing race gap by spreading falsehoods and lies across a nation on edge from a president that has done quite literally nothing to help race relations. Well we’re cheering big time today. Comic Dave Chappelle and his former show on Comedy Central were staples of the black community for years. Some of the jokes, albeit light hearted in nature, still ring true today. Many black Americans look up to him. Hopefully they will even more today.
Chappelle just said what we’ve all been thinking.
In a rare New York City performance, comedian Dave Chappelle railed against the Black Lives Matter movement, calling the slogan that provides the group’s name the “worst” he’s ever heard.
The former Chappelle’s Show star began the night with a warning, telling the crowd —according to Showbiz411’s Roger Friedman — “This will be a racist show. I’m telling you now.”
Friedman, who attended Chappelle’s intimate, closed-door performance Sunday night at the Cutting Room in Manhattan, said the comic’s jokes poked fun at both black and white people equally — but he saved his most cutting commentary for the anti-police protest group.
“Black Lives Matter is a terrible slogan,” Chappelle said.
Later in the show, Chappelle, driving home a point about “empathy,” asked the reportedly mixed race crowd “When did it become just caring about ourselves and not caring about other people?”
And that’s a great question. When BLM riots, they are not thinking about the community. They are thinking about themselves and nothing else. If this was really about black lives mattering at all, they would stop the violence, stop committing crimes, and stop giving people reasons to shoot them. Police don’t just shot black people. In fact, police shootings of white people are infinitely more likely to happen on a daily basis.
BLM is off base and just breeds hatred. Hopefully what Chappelle said will change some minds to start making a real difference instead of sounding like a bunch of spoiled babies that aren’t getting their way.
