It also made me pose the question, does a Black man really have to go this far to make it in Hollywood?

Well, it wasnt about money with Dave Chapelle. He proved that by turning down a 50 million dollar deal. In Tyler Perry's case, he shouldn't have even been in this video cause he was wearing the dress LOOOOOONG before Hollywood. Im a huge HUGE Paul Mooney fan! Ol Paul aint never scared lol.

I have to admit Ving Rhames surprised me too. If you have a tough guy image, I think you should stick with it. lol But i don`t concider wearing a dress in a move..selling out. If you are doing a Comedy, you gotta expect to do funny stuff. Case in point, Tyler Perry`s movies hardly make any money at all...untill he puts on DA DRESS! His last movie ( with dress, I might add ) was through the roof at the box office. And these were Black folks buying those tickets. Funny is funny. Just let somebody wanna pay me a couple 100 G`s to wear a dress. My only question would be...."What color pumps do I wear with it?" ROFL

Yes...too bad because these dudes are genuinely funny. I'm real selective about what I watch and listen to--always have been, even going back to Richard Pryor. My former husband loved all that stuff-they would sit around (he and his friends) and listen to "The Niggas Crazy and stuff like that. No offense to the comics at all.

I just can't stand cussin--especially the F word and B word...ugh

I have to say that i agree with both OSC and Knight on this one, it can be very entertaining, but at the same time i'm like there is no way i could do that and when Ving Rhames did Holiday Heart, i was like NOOOOOOOOOOO HE DIDN'T....LOL

I take issue with the blaring title of the clip. It's deceptive. Branding. I did appreciate seeing what goes on from another angle though. He cracked me up mimicking the producers and director...LOL!!!!

It's all moot for me though...I don't watch him because he is too foul-mouthed for me.

That Will Smith joint was sick though. Couldnt stomach that one bruh. Im just glad that Dave took a stand and said NO!! I REFUSE TO SALE MYSELF THIS WAY!. He got tired of being a whore for the entertainment industry so he left. His self respect and self pride was worth more that 50 million dollars.

That was interesting. I`m not surprised that Dave Chappelel doesn`t want to wear a dress. After all, he is the guy that turned down Millions and ran off to meditate in Africa. Robin Williams,Tony Curtis, Dustin Hoffman and lots more white guys have worn dresses. So, whats wrong about a black guy wearing one? The only question I ask is "Is it funny?" And 9 times out of 10...to me...it hillarious! I`ve never thought any of them were gay to be doing it. I watch movies to be entertained, Period. Of course I can see why some people may not like it.for various reasons. It sure beats seeing blacks portrayed as slaves, pimps, crackheads and winos. This is just my opinion, everyone is entitled to their own. Peace
