There are a lot of stories going around about white privilege and Black Lives Matter in the past couple of weeks, but this one about Dave Chapelle getting heckled by a white woman at a New York comedy club is definitely one of more inspiring that I’ve come across.

Let’s just dive right into it:
Wow. What a powerful story – I almost had a tear in my eye – and it just goes to show how that with the right reaction, information and composure you can turn a potential meltdown and riot into a massive win for everyone involved. Sure, it helps that the person at the middle of this was Dave Chappelle who is a massive activist and expert orator, but even so it still illustrates how you can take a negative situation like this and turn it into a positive with compassion and understanding. Try and think about that next time you’re faced with a similar issue.
For more of the same, check out Chappelle singing Radiohead’s ‘Creep’ at Erykah Badu’s birthday party. Very weird.
