"Here's Why I Left..."

Dave Chappelle, our favorite conscious comedian, is back in recent media offering further detail on his decision to leave his monumentally successful “Chappelle Show”. E Online’s Natalie Finn offers a decent article so I’ll spare our regular readers any paraphrasing, but I can’t help but take this one quote from the linked article:

"The bottom line was, white people own everything," Chappelle said, "and where can a black person go and be himself or say something that's familiar to him and not have to explain or apologize?"

Once again, big up to Dave. He’s saying everything outright that the Brothers and I have discussed in our own circle. It’s so truly refreshing to find an individual so successful be so damn real. Love or hate his brand of comedy, you’ve got to respect dude’s authenticity. He deserves the title of Brother Chappelle.

So, now we are giving Honorary "Brother" degrees?
