If The ‘Racial Draft’ From Chappelle’s Show Still Existed, Who Would Latinos Draft?

Remember “Racial Draft,” the classic sketch from “Chappelle’s Show”?

Comedy Central

Dave Chappelle joked that while our nation’s diversity makes this country great, it also creates tension with respect to our multiracial celebrities. Does Tiger Woods’ talent come from his black half or his Asian half? What about Derek Jeter’s baseball skills, or Halle Berry’s acting chops, for that matter? Which ethnic group has a legal claim to their heroes?

With that in mind, we’ve decided to imagine who Latinos might pick if Chappelle’s “Racial Draft” took place in 2016. If you haven’t noticed, we’re a hot commodity these days. Pop culture has not only embraced us, it has also started to imitate us. If we’re not careful, we might end up losing a few top prospects along the way.


Everyone’s been waiting for tonight… so let’s get started! Representing the Latino delegation in today’s draft, Jennifer Lopez!

And in the fourth round of the 2016 draft, the Latino delegation picks: Lou Diamond Phillips!
