That Was Straightforward Antisemitism from Chappelle and SNL Last Night
Let's just be clear for a minute.
Twitter postI'd just like to note for the record that Dave Chappelle's monologue on SNL last night contained straightforward antisemitism. In his typically meandering fashion, he said it's acceptable in Hollywood to be anti-Black and anti-Italian but not antisemitic. He said, in a complaint about the NBA's demands that Kyrie Irving meet certain conditions before returning from his suspension, that it's not acceptable to blame Black Americans for Jewish suffering. No serious person was doing this, but his implication is that Jews, as a group, were. He said it's not crazy to think Jews run show business, though it is crazy to say as much aloud. And he said, winkingly, that he hopes "they… whoever they are" don't take anything away from him for saying what he said. It's a joke! It's unserious
