This is a good and level headed video on Dave Chappelle (Summary - Runs through the jokes that while joking about trans people, weren't hateful vs the stuff people actually have issues, runs through various pieces of the segment, talks about how he has changed his comedy routine based on how people laughed at him when making black jokes, talks about how Dave constantly keeps harping on comparing LBGT right issues vs the Black struggle, etc). The whole comparing LGBT issues and Black issues is literally textbook Intersectionality. And the thing with Dave Chappelle is that he isn't a conservative troll, who is inherently bad faith. He is just a 'Boomer mindset' Gen Xer who doesn't quite understand the topic (partly because TERFs have muddied the discourse) but is also oddly interested in it. I think if you had someone articulate and knowledgeable explain the issue in the right way to him personally, he would totally get the point. The issue is that someone has to do it personally because it doesn't matter how many well-reasoned articles are written if he and others don't read them. Makes the point later in the video, about how Dave Chappelle wouldn't tolerate a white comedian, following the same playbook he just did against trans people, against Black people, and how society probably wouldn't tolerate it either (not in not being allowed to say it, but Netflix isn't going to pay out the nose to platform it) My own thought again is that Dave Chappelle is absolutely fine, each of his specials got him paid over 20 million each, and he was already wealthy. He could choose to get a role or do a new routine, literally any time he wants. He is the furthest thing from cancelled, and trying to defend him, is utterly stupid. You should be able to tell a comedian if you didn't think a joke was funny or didn't like the joke's content. The comedian can try and roast you, and the reaction will fall as it does. I don't think people get the punching down vs punching up distinction. It isn't that there is a totem pole where you can never joke about or mention someone 'lower down'. But there is a certain level of meanness and seriousness that is in play. If a comedian is making a white people joke, and some white guy in a suit pipes up, the comedian can roast them pretty hard and if they do it right, pretty easily get the audience on side. But if a comedian is making a joke about disabled people, and a guy in an wheelchair pipes up, a comedian trying to roast them is going to turn the audience off, unless they are amazing at the counterpunch. There are very good comedians who can do it, like Jimmy Carr is amazing at it. But a bunch of lazy and bad comedians just want to use the 'cancel culture' defense card, when nobody laughs, or they get booed. Bad comedians get boos. The thing some comedians seem to want is affirmative laugh action for bad comedians. Jimmy Carr is a good example because even if what he says is on its face ridiculously mean, it clearly isn't maliciously mean, it's ironic or jovial. But some bad comedians just want to unironically scream abuse and then hide behind 'its a joke'. Or another dimension. Some jokes about a marginalised group, are actually about mocking the people who make it bigoted comments or aren't marginalized or the comedian. Like if a comedian is saying what is on paper bigoted stuff about women, but the joke is that is what, he a dumb guy thinks. But the thing is, the stuff that Dave Chappelle is in the most 'trouble' for, isn't a joke. Like he declares himself a TERF (that's a Trans exclusionary Radical Feminist, so he is using the term wrong anyway) and says JK Rowling is right (who actually is one). He also says that trans women are women, so either way he is misunderstanding the issue because those are not compatible positions to hold. Like if a non Black comedian is doing a bunch of jokes on Black issues, some on point, some edging over the line. Then just straight facedly saying, oh yeah, I'm a White Nationalist or a KKK member. That's going to piss people off. Other stuff, like the whole pitting LGBT issues vs Black issues. It isn't really normal jokes, he actually just has an axe to grind and is just saying what he thinks. Being a comedian isn't an everything proof shield against criticism. If Netflix had a news program, where a presenter on air just ranted about gay people, it would get outcry. It's not a comedian-specific thing. But moreover, I'm just sick of the endless cancel culture whining. Comedians have been whining about comedy being dead because of PC culture and sensitivity forever. Shut up and tell jokes, we don't need the whining in between the jokes.
