Is Dave Chapelle Racist?

Dave Chapelle is one of my favorite comedians. Some people consider him racist, based on his show's consistently unflattering depiction of whites. Well, I am white, and I do not object to his show. Let's face it, praising people's good qualities does not typically create good comedy, but making fun of people often does. Chapelle seems to make fun of all types of people, not just whites; his message, if there is one, seems to be that all cultures/races have absurd qualities. I don't think anyone would start hating whites just because of his show. The Chapelle Show is just good comedy, created by a non-politically-correct comedian.
