  1. It’s not African American, it’s black culture then if not then it’s the same if I have to say European Americans

  2. I'm just hearing david ask the question who bookman was, I'm in my head thinking, I don't know which movie or show this was. He was probably a… Janitor. AND I GOT IT RIGHT, bruh moment

  3. I think the reason black people like menthols is because of how old KOOLS used to market to their demographic but since barely anybody smokes KOOLS now they just use regular menthols.

  4. Never knew who Mr. Chappelle is…so glad that Rotten Tomatoes and other leftist groups made such a stink about his latest show otherwise I'd never have found him!!

  5. 1 why tf is it always on white to know blacks and prove they are not racist
    2 also people say that is such a white thing to say or your so white, ive never heard "your so black" in my life
    3 these attitudes are what elected people like trump cause whites are sick of getting shit on

  6. This is so good. I like how he repeats the correct answer after the contestants get it right. Just like alex trebek does. Genius

  7. Sketches like this are exactly why he quit this show to reassess himself As he said, they weren't laughing with you, they were laughing at you.

  8. "why do black people like menthols?" I know the answer. No one actually likes menthols because they are in fact horrible, this of course includes white people. Needing a brand of cigarette that's definitively black means white people cannot be known to enjoy it. The only way to ensure this is to select a brand so nasty no one would naturally choose it.
