"I must tell you, I've never had a problem with white people ever in my life, but full disclosure: the poor whites are my least favorite."

Dave Chappelle's first two comedy specials in a dozen years (Deep in the Heart of Texas: Dave Chappelle Live at Austin City Limits and The Age of Spin: Dave Chappelle Live at the Hollywood Palladium) were released via Netflix simultaneously this past March, featured shows from 2015 and 2016 respectively, and were relatively tame and not super relevant to what was happening when they came out. In his third stand-up outing for Netflix, he finally seems to be focused on current events and the dark political atmosphere; the above quote is from a video clip promoting Chappelle's new Netflix special, Equanimity, which will be available to stream on New Year's Eve. Peep the clip below.
