Dave Chappelle directly addresses the summary execution of George Floyd, the killing of African-Americans at the hands of law enforcement and the protest that followed in his special, titled “8:46.” The special was filmed in Ohio, where the comedian lives. Dave breaks it down as only he can, be warned this is not just another funny stand-up comedy sketch, this is real talk from our brother who has never been afraid to say it and walked away from a multi-million dollar deal because he didn’t want to be their slave for any amount of money
“It’s hard to figure out what to say about George Floyd, so I’m not going to say it yet,” Chappelle says to open his set. “I got to tell you, this is like the first concert in North America since all this s*** happened, so like it or not, it’s history. It’s going to be in the books.”
Netflix dropped the Dave Chappelle special in an unconventional manner on Friday, June 12th. The streaming platform posted the show, titled “8:46,” on its YouTube page, where viewers can watch Chappelle talk about race in the wake of George Floyd’s death. The title, of course, refers to the length of time former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, kept his knee on Floyd’s neck, as Floyd begs for his life and narrates his death.
For those who still cannot understand why there are protect in all 50 states, and over 20 countries. Parental Advisory, this is Real Talk and Adult Language, but do not let the curses cause you to miss the message Brother Chappelle is delivering.
