“This man kneeled on a man’s neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds. Can you imagine that?!” Chappelle says during his standup. “This kid thought he was going to die, he knew he was going to die. He called for his dead mother.”
Stand-up legend Dave Chappelle released an “unrefined” half-hour special on Friday, titled “8:46,”. It is not his usual comedy performance giving the circumstances and brutal death of George Floyd. In his unique manner, Chappelle addresses racial issues in the United States, his view on celebrity involvement, and examining murders of people of colour due to police brutality.
The video’s description also includes a link to the Equal Justice Initiative, an organization focused on criminal justice reform, educational reform, and racial justice.
