Dave Chappelle: Still Paranoid

When Dave Chappelle spotted a couple of photogs waiting for him outside Swingers coffee shop in Los Angeles late last night, he asked if they were spies from Comedy Central. Sorry, Dave, that's the paparazzi.

Intrigued by photog's uncanny ability to sniff out a star from a mile away, the comedian asked, "How do you guys know people are going to be places?" Um, that's what they do for a living.

But what was most puzzling to Chappelle was the lack of demand over paparazzi photos of minority celebs. "How come paparazzi never takes pictures of black celebrities?" he asked. "Our pictures aren't as profitable are they?" Awfully deep conversation for that late at night, isn't it?
