Katt Williams on Dave Chappelle: “But Dave Chappelle was decapitated in front of us. And until we deal that. Until we deal with the fact that a devout Muslim was accused of being a crackhead. And until we establish the fact that they said he went to Africa to smoke cocaine when we know they don’t have running water and food over there. When they don’t have paved roads over there. You saying he flew past Chicago and Miami and LA and New York and Detroit, you saying he went past Cleveland and Fort Pierce, Florida, and he went past Okeechobee and Oakland, you saying he went all the way to another country where they not eating? You talking about somebody who has a wife and children, five children, and lives on a farm, he doesn’t live here in Hollywood. You saying you convince people that person was an insane crackhead? And he hasn’t been on movies and TV for eight years is that correct? Ok then don’t tell me about what you wanna tell me, I just watched you decapitate him in front of me… Then when he made 500 million dollars, even though his contract said he was supposed to get half of it, they said he made too much for the contract to be valid, so we’ll offer you 10% of what you made. You mean he made 500 million and they offered him 50? Yes. And he said, “what do you think my fans are gonna say? When they find out you offered me 10% of what I made you.” And they said, “your fans will believe that you’re a crazy crackhead by the time you get home. And my nigga got on a flight in LA and by the time he got to Ohio it was so. And eight years later he hasn’t been in a movie or television and is just now trying to do his real comeback in Radio City Music Hall. It’s bees like that sometimes.”

Wow. I didn’t know Dave Chappelle was Muslim 😃

Wow

Society tho

I saw this on twitter. This is beautiful.

It’s not beautiful, it’s stupid and degrading! NOBODY should use either!

Shut your dumb ass up.

Always that one person ^^ lmao.

Here let me make it two. IT is stupid and degrading. Nobody should be using either, but your stupid asses just can’t think of a better word to use now can you?

White folks always tryna police what the fuck we say. And then you got these Uncle Tom ass niggas wanting to join in and tap dance for to impress your white “pals”. All y’all can kiss my black ass. It’s sociology 101. Simple shit. I grew around Mexicans my whole life and they used to call each other beaners. You know what would happen if I called one of homies a beaner? I’d get my face sliced up. It’s called cultural relativism, assholes. You take the culture for what it is and you RESPECT THE BOUNDARIES OF SAID CULTURE. Now all y’all shut the fuck up.

Yvette Stevens at 16 years old after befriending activist and Chicago native Fred Hampton in 1967 joined the Chicago chapter of the Black Panther Party. Her duties were to hit them streets and sell the Black Panther newspaper and she also helped start the free breakfast for children program in Chicago. She states “”I saw what they were doing and it seemed to me that they were making sense.” In 1969 she left the Black Panther Party,she states “”I acquired a gun at one time and right then I realised it was not really for me…” A Yoruba priest at the Afro-Arts Theatre she attended gave her a new, very long name: Chaka Adunne Aduffe Yemoja Hodarhi Karifi. Only the Chaka stuck and with a marriage to Hassan Khan she had become CHAKA KHAN.
