“Hell hath no fury like a liberal scorned.”
“Just being a Negro doesn’t qualify you to understand the race situation any more than being sick makes you an expert on medicine.”
“A man without knowledge of his people and their history, is like a tree with no roots”
“I never learned hate at home, or shame. I had to go to school for that.”
It doesn’t get more Classic than Dick Gregory. Comedian, Activist, dietician and everything in between. He worked with your favorite person, and spent many of his later years still on the road, giving opportunities to younger comics. He marched with King and was a King in his own right. The body leaves, but his message lives on forever…
RIP to the dude who always did right by his people, Mr. Dick Gregory. He made bravery, integrity and consciousness cool. And funny.

Comedian Dick Gregory always told it like it is. Our laughter was fuel to fight for justice in an unjust world. RIP 1932-2017 pic.twitter.com/wpbdEkvny1
