Dave Chappelle in Chi-Raq

url

Ever since we watched Hollywood Shuffle and Bamboozled, Dave Chappelle and his decision to leave his highly successful show in the mid-2000s has been very interesting to me. He decided to leave the show as he felt that the jokes he was making were actually reinforcing and perpetuating the racist thought that he was hoping to make fun of and eradicate. After leaving his show, and the millions of dollars he would have made from continuing it, we have only heard rumblings of his comedy beginning to make a return. It was great to see him working with Lee on such a socially conscious project and using his comedy and talent to enhance Chi-Raq and the message it taught: that America needs to end the gun violence in Chicago and throughout the country
. Check out his scene below:
