Dave Chappelle’s on LeBron James changing his gender

Dave Chappelle was attacked while on stage at the “Netflix is a Joke” event

Dave Chappelle on his Netflix special “Sticks and Stones“ threw a very offending joke and the mentions in it were LeBron James, WNBA, NBA and the transgender community. All such jokes of his have a purpose. Many people don’t know but such things really matter to him as even he is a strong and loud voice out there who’s committed to making things better for everyone.

So trying to throw the attention at the real issues via LeBron James, Dave Chappelle quoted: “Say LeBron James changed his gender. You know what I mean? Can he stay in the NBA or because he’s a woman does he have to go to the WNBA where he will score 840 points a game. What does it actually mean to be equal you know what does it mean? Like if women are actually equal to men there would be no WNBA. They would just be good enough to play in the NBA with us. Or here is another idea that can be very controversial, you could shit the fu*k up.”

Many won’t get it at first and just laugh it out as it has fired a shot at LeBron James. But honestly, it’s got some real depth and is way more serious than we think. Chappelle talked about being equal while focusing on a lot many other problems which are existing for decades now. The question he raised can’t really be answered but all of us should collectively really try to make such situations better. But it would be a tough road as still there are no clear rules out for transgender athletes and we can’t just make those.
