is Dave Chappelle a racist?

Dave Chappelle is a comedian; if he makes fun of certain races, it is for comedy.  Imus is not a comedian.  However, Chappelle makes fun of every race including blacks.

Actually Imus is a comedian, just a terrible one

Interesting, I've listened to him a few times and never knew that.

Looks like MSNBC dropped his simulcast but he still has his CBS radio show

Hopefully they replace him with someone less offensive, like Bob Sagat (circa America's Funniest Videos) or Carrot Top.

Funny thing is, I saw Bob Saget's standup a few years ago...He is one of the dirtiest comedians ever...I'm not kidding.

Additionally, I those leaders hold a press conference in front of the Duke Lacrosse house and apologize.

according to what your definition of racist is. I doubt he thinks any race is superior to any other. However, I think he treats some races preferentially. I don't think that makes him racist, though.

Treating some races preferentially is not racism?

is Dave Chappelle a racist?

Dave Chappelle is a comedian; if he makes fun of certain races, it is for comedy.  Imus is not a comedian.  However, Chappelle makes fun of every race including blacks.

So jokes about race are ok,as long as they are funny?

Race jokes are ok if its equal treatment?

Listen, I know you're trying to dissect every little thing that someone says to prove your point, whatever it may be, but it's extremely annoying.  I simply said, Chappelle is funny, and makes jokes about all races.  Imus is not funny.  I did not say jokes about race are ok if they are funny or if they receive equal treatment.
