with that of 7-year-old Erica Pratt, who gnawed through her duct tape bindings to free herself from kidnappers in Philadelphia and was responsible for the arrest of the two men who had taken her. Pratt is African American, and her story received much less attention than did Smart's.
*** He's right about that. The only place I saw it mentioned was in FR!
That's a great line. I'd use it for a tagline, but it's too long.
I know you like unPC comedians :)
"When is a 15-year-old a kid and a 12-year-old an adult?" he asked, indicating it might be because one was white and one was not.
"I spoke at my high school last week," he said, "and I told them, 'You've got to focus. Stop blaming white people for your problems.' "
Oh, Maddox from "The Best Page in the Universe" went on a tirade over it......
He's pointing out facts about a case. That's not blaming white people.
Man, I'm starting to really like this guy.
Chappelle's sketch about the black, blind Ku Klux Klan leader is one of the funniest things I've ever seen on TV.
...when keeping it real- goes bad.
That was the one show I watched and yeah it was funny.
"When is a 15-year-old a kid and a 12-year-old an adult?"
How about it has nothing to do with race? It has everything to do with the 15 year old female being a kidnapping victim and the 12 year old male being a vicious murderer. What an idiotic comparison.
Although some stuff quoted won't be palatable for most Freepers, I must admit Dave Chappelle is right-on with his assessments.
This guy can be sometimes very raw and can lift many eyebrows, but you can't question his talent and the accuracy of his sketches, when it comes to racial stereotypes. His line of work is racial humor, and even he admits it.
But, unlike Chris Rock, he won't make humor only at the expense of white people. He's also very unforgiving and even cruel to his fellow blacks.
That's my $2/100.
P.S: I'm the proud owner of Chappelle Show's Season 1 DVD set. Buy it if you can!!!
my personal all-time favorite was the race draft, and then there is always the Player Hater's Ball
Aha! I always knew Dave Chappelle had at least some sense in his head even if he does vote rat.
Personally I think his "Black White Supremacist" skit was way more funny than the entire Rick James episode.
You're right how can you compare a 12 year old to a fifteen year old? I mean one is in the sixth grade and the other would be a sophomore in high school... I mean clearly the 12 year old is a child and the 15 year old is much more able to comprehend the world.... so I agree, there is no comparison.... unless you know absolutely NOTHING about the brain's development.
The Wayne Brady skit is my favorite, just for the shock of seeing clean cut Wayne acting street.
Yeah reading it a second time, it's a weird comparison. There are plenty of other things he can say, like when does single motherhood become fashionable when you're a rich white actress/singer. I've heard some personalities say that one before.
