Dave Chappelle:

Still Paranoid

6/6/2007 1:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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?

Man, his is paranoid. He says he wishes he had more hands, probably to knock out more paparazzi: http://listafterlist.com/tabid/57/listid/2076//I+wish+I+had+more+hands+Dave+Chappelle+quotes.aspx

I think it is not about race , just that there are a million of more white actors and actresses, comedians, etc........ (the rich and famous or the wealthy) that are Poparrazi dream pictures, they make more money on HIGH PROFILE and that happens to fall into the Cacasian Bracket!! sorry to all the Lower Profile Black Peeps, I guess consider yourself lucky not to be followed around and hounded by a bunch of wanna bees. ME :0)

If the answers to your questions are true; why don't we see more on this site?
All we see on this site is Paris Hilton, Lindsey Lohan, Joe Francis, Rosie, etc....

It's because they get paid more for pictures of Paris and friends!

Now "THAT'S HOT"

Black or white or any other colors of people off their medication and acting crazy should go and hide.

So we can we find something better to do?

So Lame    

I agree with Dave but I am glad you don't report more on Black actors and actresses because it seems like every time you do all the racist TMZ fans run to their computers to make ignorant and rude comments. It is sad.

how sad that a comic genius like dave chappelle would continue to foment discord. i've read all the other comments/posts...so sad that everything always must be degenerated into a free-for-all on race. dave, you have lots of fans. and not all of them are black. consequently, when you issue remarks such as these, it causes one to wonder who is actually the racist here?
