The Chapelle Theory

How Bill Cosby, Whoopi Goldberg, Al Sharpton, and other luminaries conspired in secret meetings to keep The Chappelle Show from its huge audience. (Via Karl Marx.)
The $50 million deal that Chappelle signed was the straw that broke the camel's back. The group — informally known as "The Dark Crusaders" — knew that a deal of this magnitude would guarantee increased attention for the third season of Chappelle's Show, not to mention sending his already robust DVD sales through the roof.

In what was an attempt to ensure that this would not happen, the group was seen holding a closed-door meeting at the Omni Hotel in Atlanta's affluent Buckhead neighborhood over the weekend of August 7th.

During that weekend meeting, recovered documents by the hotel's staff revealed that they finalized a comprehensive five point plan to bring an end to what some of the members had termed the "Chappelle Problem".

This complex, well funded, and well thought out plan was to employ a "by any means necessary" approach to ensure that the 3rd season of the Chappelle's Show would never air on Comedy Central.

What follows is the story of the events that led up to, and ultimately were responsible for Dave Chappelle's fall from grace.

After reading a good chunk of it, I have to admit that it all seems a bit odd. At the very least, not sourced at all ... so I just can't trust any of it.

AFAIK it is a publiciy campaign for a film or TV show on the subject.

I just watched a preview for his new movie "Dave Chapelle's Block party". Looks pretty good.
