I remember the System of a Down heavy metal band got beaten up because people thought they were Muslim (they're Armenians lol). People talk about anti-Asian hate today, but I swear it was 10 times worse for Muslims in the 2000s

    Makes a lot of sense now.

    No he's like full blown Muhammad Ali Muslim type, not the Five Percenters stuff. But he rarely talks about it except with David Letterman

    Yeah I didn't know that.

    That puts a different context to all of this shit. How can you believe in a fairytale, and then judge someone elses fairytale?

    Dang not even Chappelle's Show? When I was in high school kids in school used to quote that show every day. I think he's a funny dude, even smart, but maybe his ego has blown up too much. I mean, they just gave him the Mark Twain Prize, which is a HUGE deal, and that boosted his ego.

    As for the Muslim stuff, I only found out a few weeks ago about it. I guess his brother converted in the '90s, then Chappelle converted just before Half Baked. But he never talked about it, only a little bit. I don't care really, but I know Muslims aren't too crazy about the gay community, so maybe that's why Chappelle is so obsessed with trans people and whatever

    I donít think Dave Chappell is a full on Alluh Akbar, Bin Ladin type Muslim? I just think he chose the religion based on his own personal beliefs and faith which IIRC was before all the 911 stuff anyway.

    Lol what difference does it make? Itís not about trans people existing itís more about how aggressive they have become with their notion that they police the banter of everyone.

    Get yourself more nuanced.

    I know a lot of people liked him. I was never a huge fan like that. Some skits were funny.

    Why is my personal opinion of him about that?
