A girl

Thank you for shutting this ignorant ass munch down !

Hi, i just found your site by googling "chez est blackface." I live in Hartford CT, the city where Knipp will be performing this month. there's some good news: two outspoken members of Hartford's city council have condemned the show and called upon Chez Est to cancel it. Also, there's a strong queer/trans activist community here so Knipp will be met with resistance if/when he comes. Hartford has been quite a racial hotbed lately, since Uconn Law school held the now infamous "Bullets and Bubbly" party - much in the same vein as the Texas MLK parties.

keep up the good work.

Ty... you obviously didn't read what I wrote, objectively. I'm not trying to "diss" Jasmyne and Keith, I'm stating facts.

I never insinuated that Jamyne should be getting these types of calls; it's despicable. For the record, I have no problem with business contact information being shared. But Jasmyne and Keith have published personal information on their websites in the past. It's a vicious cycle that needs to end.

And yes, I have "addressed this issue in [my] own careful way. Thanks for asking.

"Chuck" is a busy guy. Am I the only one that noticed Chuck is a reverend? And apparently he's a notary public too! And he's a Registered Nurse! And lastly a "comedian".

A race war over a unfunny drag queen in black face? You white gay men/women sure do live some weird lives. Your total lack of sensitivity over this issue, shows, race relations within the GLBT communities is just as bad as the public as a whole. If, for one minute, you might just say, maybe there is something offensive to black people, it would be a debate, but, no, he is harmless, which he may be, but, his "fans," horse of a different color.

If, there is a war over this, I guess the drag queens and their fan base will be at the forefront, I wouldn't waste my time, as the beat down would be too funny to watch. But, is that a negative stereotype I would be laughing at? Men dressed as women leading the fight, and feminine men, and others who fear black people who love them behind them?

And, just like Chuck Knipp, Jasmyne isn't going to "hurt" you with her version of the truth, so, get over it indeed.

Chuck Nipp is not going to harm you. Get over it!

I find it really sad and disturbing that this thing seems to be escalating, and that Jasmyne appears to be taking delight in it and throwing more gasoline on the fire. I guess this is the "by any means necessary" approach. She probably won't rest until she's started a race war.

J Brotherlove, you have a right to your take on it, and your diss of Jasmyne and Keith was uncalled for. However, if she is getting phone calls throwing out racial slurs and threats, she has every right to make it known, and hopefully call the police. If, you had as many posts with some of the vile sentiments on your site as she has, you too would utilize a "tactic you abhor." When threatened by racist and bigots, hit them fist in the pocketbook, and then the email box, that's life in the new age of technology. And, since you have a site, have you addressed this issue in your own careful way?

Keep it up Jasmyne, and go after that American Comedy Network, and put up their addy as well.

Jasmyne - which web site posted your contact info? I don't see it on Knipp's site. Was it him or one of his fans? He's not like a mob kingpin who controls what they do, and he's not responsible for what his fans may do.

And even if he did post your personal info, how does that make it right for you to retaliate?

I am loving this, it's getting better all time! Wild accusations! Exaggerations! Paranoia! Martyr complex! And instead of making an honest effort to make peace, you only get more and more snide, arrogant and belligerent by the day. You are THE "Angry Black Woman"! You go, sistah!

But let's break it down:

You are obviously insinuating that the phone calls originate from Mr. Knipp and that's he's plotting to kill you. Those are some pretty serious allegations. I'd be curious to know what evidence, if any, you have to support them?

You singled-handledly, stridently and peremptorily provoked and insulted 1,000 people who had tickets to see a show (not to mention the thousands of other fans). Are you REALLY surprised that you might be getting some less than friendly phone calls?

I imagine if you had shut down a gansta rap concert, or even an appearance by the Olsen twins, you might be receiving some choice words and possibly death threats.

But keep it up! I can't wait to see how far you will go to make a fool of yourself!

Jasmyne, I applaud you for propelling this issue forward. To be fair, I've seen you and Keith play the personal contact information card before (a tactic I abhor). I consider this par for the course.

I am so glad to see that you are not bowing down to such cowardly acts. Of course these ignorant people can say what they want over the phone to you, but I would love to see if any of them have the balls to say it to your face. You are a beautiful woman...keep up the fight. We are beside you 100%.

you are sucm a mean angry person!
