A Call to Dave Chappelle to Become Our General Leader

Hentrich Footnote:  Several hard-core longtime inmates of a certain I-1 wing of a certain county jail of Monmouth New Jersey named me "Sticks and Stones" --- and I have been thinking of Dave Chappelle very often as of late, so it is time for me to rename myself this old 2010 name.  (see H-Diary 138 (2010): More Jailhouse Scribblings --- "The Insanely Hilarious Autobiographical Manifesto of Mike Hentrich" aka "Sticks and Stones"        PAGE 11 of 168 (actual page #7, second to last paragraph: My nickname is already "Sticks and Stones")   Does this qualify as UNCANNY?

Dance like nobody's watching!

Jesus Crackers!

I am frightened, but praying to ancestors of our species to help me gain courage.

I will be researching market forces and the weaponization of culture:

1. https://medium.com/@alleywhoops/dave-chappelle-and-the-weaponization-of-culture-for-political-gain-37ea60030fad

Quote from: Alley Whoops
The joy that had once come with attending a comedy show—that roller coaster ride of ribaldry that so often ends with you nursing your ribs the next morning from having laughed so hard and so long—has been swept aside like a lockdown implementation by gatekeepers who would tell us what we are allowed to consume as entertainment.

Or, there are terrible problems in America: we shall address them by cancelling any comedy we consider controversial.

Of course, a critic craves recognition, a sense that he has contributed something to society other than slapping a grade onto a work of art. How else would these eternal embodiments of dashed artistic dreams, muttering that Death Cab lyric, Bop bah, bop bah, this is the sound of settling every time they slink into their work chair, vent their frustrations? They’ve been telling us what’s good and bad for years. The difference now, though, is that they appear adamant that the “bad stuff” not even be allowed to exist.

This impasse—what to do, now, with the arts—mirrors so much else in society. Normal folks still want to go to a comedy show to have a good time, blow off some steam. You know, rediscover what it was to enjoy a shared experience that used to make them feel good. Now, who knows when that might be possible anymore?

Now there are rapidly changing market forces and shifting cues about acceptable metrics in social interactions, not to mention a newly fortified bully pulpit these gatekeepers shout down from, carrying their message to the masses. Our outlook is affected accordingly. We are taught to feel shame for the fun we once had. The lesson is festering. It will soon become part of our makeup, expressed in our outlook as we leap out into the New Normal.

Quote from: Justin Patton
When it comes to our freedom of speech, comedians are our last line of defense. Comedians should be able to talk about whatever topic, as long as it is not hateful.

[Humanity] has unquestionably one really effective weapon — laughter. Power, money, persuasion, supplication, persecution — these can lift at a colossal humbug — push it a little — weaken it a little, century by century, but only laughter can blow it to rags and atoms at a blast. Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand. — Mark Twain

Disclaimer: Don't shoot the messenger.  I understand the confusions with the word 'Indians' --- I also give Blackfeet a great deal of slack.   There is his obsession with exposing stereotypes.

I figure that when Silenus gets around to it, he might get a knee-slapping chuckle at around https://youtu.be/PWcNEDhMJfY?t=132

I wonder if Dave Chappelle would be interested in organizing a play or film adaptation of Toole's A Confederacy of Dunces since the character who steals the show is Afrimerican "Jones" ...
