[REVIEW] Dave Chappelle's Sticks & Stones

Anonymous - Did Dave Chappelle go too far in his latest Netflix special “Sticks & Stones?”

Muhammad Rasheed - No, I don’t think he went too far. We need to have that Candid & Courageous Conversation on every topic Dave touched upon. Here’s my takeaway bullets from his show:

  • Founding Fathers writing the Constitution – Every key moment in the building of the United States of America we find a Black person taking it to the next level. White supremacists enjoy revealing their ignorance of history and the depths of their anti-Black indoctrination by boldly asking “What contributions have ADOS ever made to civilization?”
  • Leaving Neverland“I’m going to say something really controversial: I don’t believe these mother*ckas.” Nuff said.
  • Standards & Practices“Because, David, you aren’t gay.” The strength of Chappelle’s comedy insight is pointing out the hypocrisy in the national social justice discourse. If the black American Descendants of Slavery (ADOS) do not aggressively fight for their rights and freedoms, they will get ran over by every other special interest group who is unapologetically pushing & shoving to position themselves towards political advantage, and we will find ourselves back in chattel. Period.
  • The G’s are Driving that Car – White men are the driving force behind the gay rights movement and they are able to achieve the socio-political progress they make by negotiating through the roads of discrimination because they built those roads. Brilliant insight.
  • Chappelle’s Solution to the Abortion Issue - “And if I’m wrong, perhaps we’re both wrong.” Dave’s comment is the summary of what is actually happening in society: abortion is normal, as is the male abandonment of the child born outside of wedlock. Both are the extreme side effects of the sexual revolution which violently rebelled against traditionalist family trends born from an often oppressive patriarchal system. There’s obvious levels of blatant irresponsibility and immorality inherent within each gender’s approach, but I’m more interested in whether the future discussions will ever clear the hurdles of blind political ideology to determine when it will ever be time for that pendulum to finally swing away from the “death & abandonment” side of the spectrum to rest at a more reasonable middle ground that enables us to approach something significantly closer to a healthy society.
  • Disarm America’s Whites – That’s adorable. Obviously arming ADOS is the way to go for far more valuable reasons than what was stated in Dave’s punchline.
  • ADOS Saving America Again – As pointed out in the 1619 Project, ADOS has always believed in the highest ideals of the United States of America, and has used the force of that belief to build up the country on the policy side whenever they got the chance to. The dominant group obviously only wants the USA to work for them alone, and routinely molest it to support their precious white racist aristocracy. If ADOS doesn’t do the work then it won’t get done, but the rub is that we CAN’T neglect ourselves in the doing. Make sure we fight equally for our ADOS Reparations, ADOS socio-political empowerment and our ADOS economic inclusion while we seize the nation by the ear and frog march it towards the greatness of its woefully neglected dormant potential.
  • Battle of the Drug Epidemics “Because I don’t care either.” I agree with Dave in every way on this item. Are you REALLY trying to get me to feel sorry for your hypocritical, drug addicted stank ass while you STILL criminalize ADOS under the anti-Black banner of the so-called ‘War on Drugs?” A public policy of treating opioid addicted white people with care, respect & love while continuing to treat my people like crap is an open declaration of the formal race war as far as I’m concerned.
  • Jussie Smollett – Dave pointed out that during the early stages of the controversy, the gay community charged the ADOS community of not being supportive enough of their issues. I noticed that the gay community is very aggressive in pushing for their political agenda bullets, but actively attack ADOS when we aggressively fight for ours with an equal single-minded focus – the same level of focus the LGBTQ has used to achieve their milestone accomplishments. They should back off since this behavior can only be interpreted as bullying and it’s NOT how to maintain an ally.
