Dave Chappelle Speaks on Viral Video of Him Appearing to Kill Affordable Housing Project in His Hometown

Did Dave Chappelle kill affordable housing in Yellow Springs, Ohio where he lives?

Some think so but he says he didn’t because it wasn’t really affordable housing.

A clip of Dave addressing the city council in Yellow Springs has gone viral with him saying he would pull his business ventures in the town and called the council members clowns if they approved the deal.

Once they voted, the deal was partially approved but without the part with affordable housing. After news of that broke Dave and his reps had to come out and clear things up via Fox News saying

Dave Chappelle didn’t kill affordable housing,” Sims said. “Concerned residents and a responding Village Council ‘killed’ a half-baked plan which never actually offered affordable housing.”

“Neither Dave nor his neighbors are against affordable housing, however, they are against the poorly vetted, cookie-cutter, sprawl-style development deal which has little regard for the community, culture and infrastructure of the Village,”

“The whole development deal, cloaked as an affordable housing plan, is anything but affordable. Three out of 143 lots would have been for ‘future’ affordable housing. The rest of the homes were to be priced between $250K and upwards of $600K. In Yellow Springs, and in many other places, that is not considered affordable housing. Instead, it’s an accelerant on the homogenization of Yellow Springs.”

This is one of those things where you have to see all sides before commenting on it because if you have just seen the viral clip or headlines saying Dave killed affordable housing you’d believe it but if the housing wasn’t affordable he did the community a service by using his influence.

I think before making a determination people really need to dig into what Chappelle said to see if it holds water. Maybe it does, maybe it doesn’t but Chappelle doesn’t seem the type to not want to help poor people.
