Dave Chappelle and the Whore’s Uniform

US comedian Dave Chappelle has delivered a lot of material over the years, but one of his most famous quotes was from the Killin’ Them Softly routine way back in 2000. It was here he made the connection between what a woman wears, and what people think of her for wearing it. The quote is entirely accurate, and provides a real wake-up call for those women who dress like a whore, and believe it is ok.

As Dave Chappelle rightly points out, what uniform or clothing one chooses to wear does not determine what type of person they are, but it does determine what reactions they will receive from others. Hence, they only have themselves to blame for what happens to them. Also consider that his routine was given to a US audience, and the quote was relevant to the modern Western society. Do they not take heed of the way God instructs us to dress, and see the benefits in dressing modestly?

Dave Chappelle’s Whore’s Uniform quote is given below in text, and also in a picture format for those who wish to forward the picture around. There was a word of profanity and this has been removed.

The girl says “Oh uh-uh, wait a minute! Wait a minute! Just because I’m dressed this way does not make me a whore!” Which is true. Gentlemen, that is true. Just because they dress a certain way doesn’t mean they are a certain way. Don’t ever forget it. But ladies, you must understand that is … confusing. It just is. Now that would be like me, Dave Chappelle, the comedian, walking down the street in a cop uniform. Somebody might run up on me, saying, “Oh, thank God. Officer, help us! Come on. They’re over here. Help us!” “Oh-hoh! Just because I’m dressed this way does not make me a police officer!” See what I mean? All right, ladies, fine. You are not a whore. But you are wearing a whore’s uniform.
