Dave Chappelle dropped two new hour-long Netflix specials on New Year’s Eve — Equanimity and The Bird Revelation — with one joke taking aim at Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green.
During a joke about Rachel Dolezal, a white woman who served as a former NAACP chapter president, Green’s name was used as a punchline.
Chappelle was wondering out loud just how far Dolezal would have gone to support African-American people and pointing out her white privilege, before calling out the NBA player’s name to drive his point home.
Here is how the bit went (WARNING: NSFW language):
What is Rachel willing to do, so that we blacks believe that she believes she is actually one of us? B**ch, are you willing to put a lien on your house so that you can invest in a mixtape that probably won’t work out? […] If you want my support, you’re gonna have to change your name to the blackest sh** I’ve ever heard. B**ch, you’re gonna have to change your name to Draymond Green. I don’t know a blacker name than that. That sh** is black on paper. If you type Draymond Green into Airbnb, that shit will log off automatically.
Green caught wind of the joke and took it in stride, responding to Chappelle on social media and seemingly appreciating being the punchline.
You can check out both of Chappelle’s new specials right now streaming on Netflix.
