There's a difference between good race humour and bad race humour. Dave Chappelle is satirical of his own race, while not constantly reinforcing the racial divide.
Bernie Mac's show is a man behaving like a total ass to his wife, adopted children, and society with the excuse that it's acceptable because that's how his parents treated him and that's how black people can and should act. White people who don't pay attention think that how he acts is standard for black people. Black people use Bernie Mac's relativist excuses as their own.
Chappelle is a man hitting himself over the head with a fish. He doesn't take the views he's expressing on stage seriously, they're as much of a joke to him as they are to the audience. Sure, it's race baced, but it's not harmful.
