Well its not chaos theory, but it is The Chappelle theory about the demise of Dave Chappelle's third season. Take it as you will. It is an anonymously published website which details a complex theory about Chapelle's decision to leave the show, allegedly after leading black icons, including Bill Cosby, Al Sharpton, Whoopi Goldberg, Oprah Winfrey, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan and others found the show offensive.

It is quite the intricate tale of black mail, intimidation, and harassment. No idea how true it is. My only real thought is if all this threating was occuring (some of it amounting to death threats) I would think a little group called the FBI should have been notified. It is a real shame in my opinion that Dave Chappelle is not on television because he had one of the few shows that tackled the issue of race and racism in the country, which is alive and well. Race is a difficult issue but an issue that should not be ignored and by limiting the dialogue about race we do just that.

Thanks to William for the heads up.
