Where are You?: Dave Chappelle and Aaron McGruder

Very few would disagree that we are currently at a watershed in the history of this country. First Black President, Black Attorney General, economic recession, senators convicted of felonies (okay, maybe that isn’t new…); America is undergoing a lot of change.

Where’s the comedy?!

Times like these, we need to laugh and sadly, there is a lack of intelligent humor. Instead of Dave Chappelle and Aaron McGruder, we have DL Hughley and David Alan Grier. It’s just not cutting it. I’m longing for real satire, the kind that you actually find funny and not insulting on some level.

David Alan Grier’s Chocolate News

I am sure that DL Hughley and David Alan Grier aren’t trying to be Dave Chappelle (actually, I’m not convinced of that. It would be smart for TV stations to capitalize on this moment in history by trying to recreate the type of social commentary that Dave Chappelle had mastered but that’s a different post…). What I will say about DL Hughley’s Breaking the News and David Alan Grier’s Chocolate News is that THEY AREN’T REMOTELY FUNNY.

Dave Chappelle, Aaron McGruder, we need you! Where are you?! Come back because I can’t support this foolishness!
